CBC4 FW: Black Salvo vs Nikkousen

Black Salvo:
Speed: 9
Traction: 8
Torque: 3
Weapon: lol
Armour: 10 (+2 Wedge)
Speed: 7
Traction: 5
Torque: 1
Weapon: 2
Armour: 9

Alright, this time we're at least on a relatively sane arena. All 4 wedgelets on both bots. I'm going to assume Black Salvo will use the underall wedges.

Even with their speed advantage, this is still a 1v2 fight and with no damaging weapons, I can completely focus on being aggressive. There is also no OOTA zone so I won't be able to cheap out a win through that method.

Start split up and immediately go for pincer attacks. Black Salvo only has a reliable wedge on one side of the bot, so while they may wedge one of my bots (which will get caught in the underall wedges if Badnik uses them), I can still push back to slow them down enough for my other bot to approach from behind for a flip. Those wedgelets of theirs look to be invertable so don't worry about keeping them upside down. Get as many flips in as I can.
Change my approach often, switching between angling, j-hooking, driving straight at them, and using feints to potentially confuse them and let me get more flips off.
If they corner camp, wait a few meters away for them to leave the corner. All they'd be doing is losing precious aggression points sitting there so I have no problem with that.
Avoid the hazards to the best of my ability. Badnik may try to push me into them with their torque but I can have the other bot of the cluster come up from behind and pop a little flip to potentially put Black Salvo into the hazard instead.

underall wedges on.

divide and conquer is the name of the game here. single one out at the beginning, chase it down, drive it into a hazard. keep focusing on that one until it breaks. never stop moving so the other one can catch me. try to keep mixing up angles of approach so he can't anticipate, utilizing tricky movement like j-hooks and feints to bait him into making unsafe maneuvers. I want to press my advantage for as long as possible so try to predict which way he'll try to escape me and keep chasing him down with my superior drivetrain.

Getting flipped isn't going to do much to me so just try and make it so he can't start chaining by moving unpredictably when I land.
