The New Era 2: Electric Boogaloo

The New Era 2: Electric Boogaloo

Since the first one was such a success I thought it was time to bring robot combat into the future once again. So let's get this underway!

Rules:
  • Rule 1: There are no rules.
  • Rule 2: Rule 1 is a lie. There are actually lots of rules.
  • Rule 3: Rules are for losers, and winners don't play by the rules. Especially Rule 1.
  • Rule 4: You must enter this tournament. If you do not enter the tournament, you will be disqualified and ejected from the tournament and your entries will be confiscated.
  • Rule 5: The tournament has four weight classes. If you enter into more weight classes than that you will be given a very stern look. If you enter into fewer weight classes than that you will not be given any bonus points for your minimalism, but you do you. The weight classes are: Lightweight, Really Lightweight, Deadweight, and Batmanweight.
  • Rule 6: Each entry has 50 stats to work with, which you can decide into Speed, Weapon Power, Armor, Agility, Strength, Intellect, and Speed.
  • Rule 7: Matches will take place in the Battlebots Battlebox. We haven't asked them about this but we're sure they won't mind if we just borrow it for a bit.
  • Rule 8: Each contestant will submit an RP in the RP room. There are no RP limitations, but writers are under no obligation to actually read them.
  • Rule 9: The winner of a match will be whichever contestant the judges think was more awesome. Bribing the judges is illegal and violations will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
  • Rule 10: The tournament will continue in a double elimination format until someone wins or we all get tired of the thing and ban it from the forums forever. (*Cough*)

Signups will close at 11:59pm EST on December 31st, 2018. New year, new New Era!

If anyone wants to write some matches for this that would be great because I'll probably get bored of it and flake out after a while. Writers get a +5 bonus to speed if they finish their results on time. (Certain terms and conditions apply. See website for details.)

Dang it's not even April yet

LW: Why

Image

Speed: 1 / Weapon Power: 15 / Armor: -10 / Agility: 2 / Strength: 10 / Intellect: 30 / Speed: 2

wide boi. Wins by taking up so much space, the opposition can't enter the box in the first place.

RLW: Yacare

Image

Speed: 7 / Stability: 3 / Maneuverability: 7 / Weapon Power: 15 / Armour: 6 / Watertight Compartments: 7 / Ammunition: 0

Aquabots is taking too long to happen so fuck it, I'm porting in the snappy boi. It doesn't need water in the Battlebox because reasons.

DW: Mimi-Chan

Image

Speed: 50

Tuned up for even more speed. So much, that the other stats ceased existing. It's probably fine.

🦇W: Chrazedortic

Speed: 50 / Weapon Power: 50 / Armour: 50 / Agility: 50 / Strength: 50 / Intellect: 200 / Speed: 50

Best robot evarrrrrrrrrrr

IT´S HAPPENING

Lightweight: Master Spark
Image
4wd bot armed with a really big laser gun.
Speed: 1 Weapon Power: 75 Armor: -30 Agility: 1 Strength: 1 Intellect: 1 Speed: 1
also the wedge is hinged if you ask.

Really Lightweight: Regretful Overlord
Image
Dual arm mounted crushers.
Speed: 3 Weapon Power: 13 Armor: 5 Agility: 10 Strength: 13 Intellect: 4 Speed: 2

Deadweight: TBD

Batmanweight: Plan Z
Image
Speed: 1.25 Weapon Power: 0 Armor: 0.25 Agility: 2 Strength: 0.5 Intellect: 45 Speed: 1
Kind of a pacifist, it flies and can talk in a robot voice
Plan Z wins matches by persuading the opposing robot(or driver) into not fight it and/or convincing the judges to give it the win.

Bailing out. Didn't realize this was a joke tourney. I don't do well with jokes.

I have no idea what these stats do. Was this tournament supposed to be taken seriously?
It's a joke tournament, based on Asbestosstar's original one that devolved to meme
