Not the Football League

Post by YSMQTHLQYH » Sun Dec 01, 2019 9:22 pm

Small event i am hosting because i can and to fill the void happening right now
FW sportsman event

Signups close Saturday 7th at midnight. Remember this is meant to go quick. You might get a little extension but you must confirm the stats of your bot by then.

Format is 8 bot single elimination bracket.

Also we got a Challonge Bracket

Rules

-> There's a soft RP length limit of 400 words.

-> Use proper grammar and spelling; if we can't understand what you're saying, you aren't allowed to get mad about it :V

-> Fight cards will be posted on Sunday usually (as are results, mostly), and you will have one week to post your RPs. If the fight card is, for whatever reason, late, RPs will still be due on Saturday, barring some really long delay.

-> All RPs are due Saturday at midnight Eastern time. For consistency's sake, no late RPs will be accepted; if you can't RP on time or something comes up, get someone to RP for you.

-> If a robot has configurations that change the stat allocations of said robot (ex. Most swiss-army bots), or change the style of weapon (ex. a robot that can attach either a vertical or horizontal spinner - this should cover the rest of the swiss-army designs :P), its user must notify its opponent which configuration it is using. Other bots are not required to do so, but you're welcome to do so (especially if someone asks and it's not integral to your strategy - remember, don't be a dick :V).

->Fights will be judged for a total of 45 points, divided equally among 3 categories; Aggression (who initiated the attack, who's running away, who's running into fights, use of weapons - this is all regardless of how intelligent it was to do these things), Damage (obvious, I'd hope), and Control (similar to the old criteria's strategy; takes into account the intelligence of actions like a spinner running away to get their weapon up to speed, or a driver who refuses to abandon a strategy even though it is clearly not working).


Stats & stuff:

We will be using the REDDIT/CBC/Whatever it's called ruleset

Notes:

-> Sportsman event, Spinners are capped at 7 power

-> Mandatory active weapon

-> Melty brains have a 5 point bonus to traction which applies only to spinup time, just like it was in ROBOT3. This of course is not
going to matter because they are also limited to 7 damage.

-> Projectile weapons are not subject to the weapon self-damage rules.

->Administrators reserve the right to modify a bot's individual stats based on discrepancies with the picture of the design. The administrators also have the right to reject any robot submission, stat allocation or design aspect that is considered to be unfair or exploiting the rules in any way. Basically i get to ban obvious exploits.

->All information about adjustable set-ups must be stated in the original post, linked albums or other such things may contain additional pictures to avoid clutter, but should not unintentionally hide extra information.

For the arena, we are breaking in borrowing the battlebox like we did in REDDIT. It's a bit big for this weight class but that shouldn't cause many problems

Entering or something...
Banana HYPERDRIVE
Speed: 9 Traction: 8 Torque: 2 Weapon: 2 Armour: 9

Image

Two-wheel drive thing with a banana on it. The banana can touch the floor and touch its back, meaning it has just over 180 degrees of motion. It doubles up as a lifter and a grabber. The wedge is static, Wedgelets are removable but what’s the point in doing that?

Guess who?
TASKMASTER V4
Image
(Ignore the thing going on with the back left wheel, something's wrong with it)
Again, Taskmaster is undergoing another design overhaul, this time becoming a flipper. I suppose this would be better suited for CBC4 when the new wedge rules drop, but I want to try it out anyways beforehand. Since this is a smaller event, it should be somewhat more hospitable anyways. : )

Teeth are removable, but why would I do that? It's a sportsman competition. Anyways, saying it just in case.

Stats: 9/8/6/3/4

Credit to Laz, I stole a bunch of stuff from him to make this : )

Midnight Madness

Image

WEAPONS ARE: - Side clamps. lifters for the side clamps. overhead clamp arm (with added sharpies!). Lifter (the bit with the horns). it can rotate about 5 degrees up and 90 + downwards. yes that is an abnormal way for a lifter to function.

Speed: 8
Traction: 8
Torque: 6
Weapon: 2 (1/1/1/1)
Armor: 6

Giant Enemy Spider

Image

Speed: 1
Torque: 1
Traction: 1
Armor: 11
Weapon: 18 (15/15/15/15 hammers)

Go ahead. Try to flank it.

All 4 hammers operate in tandem with one another, meaning it takes three -1 penalties for a total of 15 weapon power. Legs can flip upward for invertibility.

Thunder Carnival

Yo, geeky!

Speed: 5 / Traction: 4 / Torque: 2 / Armour: 6 (effective 10 on crusher) / Weapon: 12

Alt. Armour: 8 (+2 claws) (effective 14 on crusher) / Weapon: 10

A horizontal crusher. Don't see too many of these these days. Hinged wedge on the rear in case of weapon failure, though the inside of the crusher is angled enough to work as a wedge.

Wallop

Image Image
Image Image

Speed: 7 Traction: 6 Torque 1: Weapon: 8 (Vertical Disc 7/ Arm 1) Armour: 8

Wallop is a 4WD vertical spinner, it also has an arm which works as a separate weapon, the arm can act as a pinner or to help the bot self right if upside down or onto the side. the front wedgelets have angle limiters and are hinged which helps the bot get underneath the opponents bot and hope to create some damage or "pop shots".

We still need at least 2 more bots that are not rendered yet, we will probably do fine but just in case we have to fill up spots i present this.

Stats:
(All of the have the same stats)
  • Speed: 8
  • Traction: 7
  • Torque: 2
  • Weapon: 2
  • Armor: 1
Yes, this is just 3 of the Mini Something from my ROBOT3 cluster, slightly modified so they only got the flipper now. Also added a hinged wedge to them on, of course on an angle limiter so it doesn't do weird unexpected things.
