Not bad. Should be a pretty effective pusher, even if those support arms do look a little flimsy for my liking.

work in progress for Pressure Drop

Normal view and upside down view of what is to be one half of identical twins. The idea is to give it a low power flipper and then have enough stat points left, despite the clusterbot deduction, to be fast and bulky. Stat deduction or not, opponents will have to deal with 2 robots capable of wedging and flipping them instead of 1, which I find cool, lol. In its normal orientation the corners of the wedge angle as in an annoying wedge wedge, for corner protection. Despite the good srimech, the wheels and shape are designed such that when inverted, the thing is still a perfectly effective wedgebot, to allow it to on going no matter what side is up. Spikes on the flipper to stop stuff from driving straight over it, and maybe score some damage points. Maybe.

Yeah, gonna finetune this bugger, maybe after fetching some tips from you guys, dunno. We'll see.

The one thing I would suggest is to widen the wedge a bit to protect the wheels better.... though that may come at the price of invertability. Perhaps a modular design?

that's an idea, why would WIDENING the wedge hurt invertability?

K guys this is what I wanna enter in pressure drop, any changes from here will be naught but superficial. Dunno, feel like pimping them but am short on time to go all-out. Gonna first post it here to maybe be persuaded to change the stats, who knows, but really this can be transferred to reddit whenever required.

Ben & Jerry's! Clusterbot consisting of 2 identical parts. They are motherfucking flippers, designed to, between the 2 of them, keep stuff in the air. They can self right, AND they also are perfectly fine wedgebots when inverted (as was also shown in the earlier work in progress image in this same topic). From there he can wedge things and then still flip things basically by self righting!

Provisional stats!

-Speed 5 -Traction 5 -Armor 6(+2 front wedge) -Torque 2 -Weapon Power 4

EDIT: Revised stats!

-Speed 7 -Traction 5 -Armor 7(+2 front wedge) -Torque 2 -Weapon Power 1

I would argue having at least 6 speed is a good idea

I was a fool and should totally give it 1 weapon power, as the rules clearly state that even at 1 a flipper still works instantly.

New stats!

-Speed 7 -Traction 5 -Armor 7(+2 front wedge) -Torque 2 -Weapon Power 1
