The Crash & Burn Tournament 6

Post by That Kode Guy » Mon Sep 18, 2017 11:26 pm

(copy-paste from FRA in case the admins decide to delete the thread...)


Say what?

That's right. #6 is here, after #5 went down the drain like #3 did before it. And rest assured, #6 will not be a hypo, as I seem to have regained by writing abilities, AND my interest in robot fanfic... thanks, new Robot Wars series'.


1. Entries

I need 10 people to enter:

- 4 heavyweights (100kg)

Realies are allowed, and actually are a bit more encouraged now. Unfortunately, because the weight limit is 100kg, you cannot enter robots from the newest Robot Wars series unless they fall below 100kg, or match it within 1%.

2. Weight bonuses

- Normal weights for wheeled robots
- 10% bonus for bots with treads (El Diablo Grande, Panzer), tracks (101, Trax) or shuffling pads (Son of Whyachi, Drillzilla)
- 50% bonus for bots with true walking mechanisms (Mechadon, Pressure Drop)

3. Robot rules

- No flying or hovercraft robots :P
- Clusterbots are allowed, but they must be, at most, 4 bots weighing up to 100kg together. The weight bonuses apply for clusterbots too, but only if ALL the bots in the cluster have the same type of motivation, otherwise it's void. Also, all the clusters in the whole robot must be eliminated for the whole robot to be out.
- You can only have a maximum of 3 active weapons going at the same time.
- Interchangeable robots are also allowed, but you may only use 3 attachments for the entire tournament (if you have more than 3 attachments, you'll have to choose which ones to be left out)
- Maximum PSI allowed for nitrogen pneumatics is 2400PSI. (CO2 is automatically 900PSI since that is the max it can go to) Maximum PSI for hydraulic systems is 5000PSI

4. Arena

Welcome to the Battlegrounds!


It's similar to the Battlebots arena, with two pairs of killsaws, and two hammers in opposing corners! However, do you see the spiked hammers, pictured? They are going to be replaced with house robots... specifically, Team Covenant's own house robots! Picture will be updated in due course.

You can find the house robots' stats here: ... rkzlayerz/

5. Judges' decision

Fights in all the arenas except Casino Night Zone last for 5 minutes (even Lumina Cloth), then it goes to a judges' decision. The judges decision is as follows:

Strategy - /5
Style - /10
Control - /15
Aggression - /20
Damage - /25

Say for instance, Nightmare and Hypno-Disc fought and went to a JD (highly unlikely that'd be though :P ) example would be:

Nightmare - Hypno-Disc

Strategy = 2/5 - 3/5
Style = 4/10 - 6/10
Control = 9/15 - 6/15
Aggression = 6/20 - 14/20
Damage = 18/25 - 7/15

TOTAL = 39/75 - 36/75

and so Nightmare would win the decision based on that.

6. Stat sheet

This is a basic stat sheet, one that I nearly always use:

Name: (obvious)
Shape: (please, PLEASE give a basic shape. If you can't explain it properly, give me a picture. Even a Paint pic will do)
Colour: (if your bot has a pic, this isn't needed too much :proud: )
Weight: (explained somewhere above)
Armour: (what material covers your robot; this can range from polycarbonate, aluminium, titanium, Hardox, kevlar, etc.)
Drive: (your motors: LEM130, Bosch 750w, A28-400 are good examples)
Power: (power source, pretty much batteries: Lithium-Ion, Nickel-Cadmium[NiCad], Nickel-Metal-Hydride[NiMH], Sealed Lead Acid [SLA] are the main batteries. Also state the voltage. You don't need to state the batteries if need be (like, beginners, hehe) ^^ )
Motivation: (what moves your robot's weight around the arena: wheels, tracks, shuffling pads, etc.)
Top Speed: (your maximum drive speed)
Ground Clearance: (the space between the bottom of the tip of the robot, and the arena floor. If it's 0, it can't move. Skirts can be used but you must state what material they're made of (but not in this section!) and what the ground clearance is behind them)
Turning Circle: (not really needed; if it has a turning circle, please state it here)
Dimensions: (length x width x height; it can't be too small or else your drive/weapon power/etc. won't fit; conversely, if it's too big your armour may be overweight, or really weak!)
Weaponry: (what weapons do your robots use to fight with? what are they powered by, or are they static? what material are they made of? if you have a pneumatic weapon (flipper, some spikes, or some crushers), state the pressure (PSI) it fires at. If you have a spinner, try to state the kJ output, weight, and diameter of it)
Srimech: (does it run invertibly, or does it have a mechanism that rights the vapourbot?)


Otherwise known as "Build It and I'll Believe It". It's Frank Goacher's highly effective system used in his NSBFL series of tournaments to check for overweight or impossible vapourbots and it should be honoured here. If a vapourbot on here is blatantly overweight, or it's blatantly not possible (and I WILL be checking), I'll update the sign-up thread with robots that are BIIBI, label them with that, and explain the problems. Once the vapourboteer has fixed the problems stated, the BIIBI label will be removed. It will also be removed if you explain logically how you design can work, but don't get too rule bendy. :P And remember, I'm not perfect either. :P I'll be asking for help with this, so...

8. No stupid vapourbots

Or ones that are meant to be a joke. Because this isn't a joke tourney, k? If there's massive demand for stupid vapourbots, I'll re-open ATTTWI or something. :P

9. Fighting

NO VAPOURBOTEER FIGHTING. I don't know how many times this has occurred. If you have a beef with somebody, keep it off this thread. Remember, it's the robots that are supposed to be killing each other, not us. :P

10. Issues

If I make a mistake during a battle, or with the line-ups, please kindly point it out to me so that I may rectify it. :) Like I said, I'm not perfect and often screw up. However, if you're an arse with your statement, consider it ignored. :P

11. The format

Follows the new Robot Wars series (8 and 9 anyway) format up to a few points:

- 5 heats of 8 robots. Each heat has 2 1v1v1v1 fights, from which 2 robots each will move on from, then single elim until we get a heat winner, similar to RW6 and RW7
- once we get our 5 grand finalists, there will be a rumble between the heat finalists to determine the 6th grand finalist
- grand final is 3 1v1 matches, then a losers' melee to determine the semis. Then single elim until we get our champion. There will be a 3rd-place playoff.

12. Other

There will be virtually no seeds for this tournament. WhipCoil may be the current champion and all, but too many of our competitors are long gone and there won't be enough seeds to fill out the missing ones from C&B5. Also, there will not be any otherweights, as I believe asking the members of the ARC community to do other-weights (for now) is a bit too much of a hassle. If there's a C&B7 (which I doubt), maybe they'll be comfortable enough to do them then. :P


If you have any questions regarding the tournament, please feel free to message me on Discord, Facebook, or heck, just post in the thread. :)

Now everybody get in and feel the burn...

It sucks going 0-5. You lose all 4 of your bot fights for the week and you also lose at life.

Name: Oopsy-Daisy!
Weight: 100kg
Armour: Main chassis is made of a solid billet of aluminium, with 39mm sides. In the normal config, there is a 30mm HDPE plate to absorb shock on the top. In the brick config, the top is 3mm Aluminium, however the front is 13mm Hardox 450 and hinged. Good luck with that.
Drive: 4 Ampflow A28-400s geared 4.3:1
Power: 4 7S LiPo (25.9v) batteries with a capacity of 5000mah, adding to a total of 20aH.
Motivation: 6 inch rubber wheels. 4WD
Top Speed: 22mph
Ground Clearance: 18mm all round, 5mm at the top in the normal config, 22mm in the brick config.
Turning Circle: Lol.
Dimensions: 52cm x 88cm x 15.25cm (not including the wedge)
Weaponry: The 5cm wide hinged hardox wedge. Also the drive, which is capable of getting this thing to hit with a kinetic energy of 5kJ.
Srimech: It's invertible
Strengths: Lots of push, and very well armoured against spinners.
Weaknesses: No active weapon to do anything with.


Name: Cadaverific
Weight: 100kg
Armour: All Hardox 450, but varying at different places. The bulkheads are 3cm wide, which are also the sides. The front is 2cm thick Hardox, so spinners can fuck off. The top is made of 5mm thick, so less thick.
Drive: 2 Alien C8085 200kv outrunners at 15S LiPo (55.5v), with BRUSHLESS RAGE #BrushlessHipsters
Power: There are 5 LiPo batteries in total. 2 8000 mAh batteries (One 10S and one 8S, so 18S (66.6v) in total) for the weapon, and another 3 8000 mAh batteries (All 5S, adding up to 15S (55.5v) in total)
Motivation: 10 cm wheels with HDPE hubs
Top Speed: 15mph (it accelerates quickly, very Pulsar-esque)
Ground Clearance: 2mm at the back, and angling down from there
Turning Circle: It's 2017, and I am deleting my turning circle
Dimensions: 44cm x 106cm x 27cm (including the bar)
Weaponry: An AR450 12kg eggbeater spinning at over 9000rpm. Rah. 12000rpm theoretically. It spins up to this speed in 2 seconds, and with 33kJ of energy. However, 360mph is a silly amount of drag. So it will probably take a little longer. It's powered by an Alien TP100 brushless inrunner with an 18S LiPo behind it.
Srimech: Big weapon. Arena floor must die.
Notes: There are magnets that activate whenever the robot would gyro. So no gyro.
Strengths: Lots of armour, lot of pushing power. The DBZA fandom. A blood-curdling death <del>hum</del> SCREAM
Weaknesses: Brushless motors. BRUSHLESS MOTORS. Golden haired monkeys.


Name: Smaug
Weight: 100kg
Armour: The bulkheads are 40mm 2024 Aluminium, with the back and base being made of 4mm Hardox, the top being made of 20mm HDPE, and the wedge being 10mm Hardox
Drive: 48.1v LEM-130s. 1 per side
Power: There are 3 LiPo batteries in total. 2 12000 mAh batteries (One 6S and one 7S, so 13S (48.1v) in total) for the drive, and another 3S 1000mah for the flame and linear actuator
Motivation: 16cm tyres
Top Speed: 20 mph
Ground Clearance: 5mm all-round, with hinged forks at the front
Turning Circle: It's 1997 and I'm baffled by this lack of turning circle
Dimensions: 69cm x 51cm x 35cm (without the wings), 84cm x 77cm x 35cm (including the wings) (including the head both times)
Weaponry: A clamping head powered by a 600lb linear actuator, and a butane flamethrower (that is what the holes in the wedge are for)
Srimech: The wings
Strengths: Lots of drive power. 11 hp in fact
Weaknesses: Not spinner proof, slow to self-right

Name: Citizens Erased
Weight: 33kg each
Armour: The bulkheads are made of 30mm 7075 Aluminium, with the armour panels being 5mm Grade 5 Titanium.
Drive: 25.9v A28-150 "short" Magmotors. 1 per side
Power: A single 8000mAh 7S (25.9v) LiPo.
Motivation: 16cm rubber tyres on HDPE hubs.
Top Speed: 16mph. It accelerates quickly.
Ground Clearance: 2mm at the back, and angling from there.
Turning Circle: TIME TUUURRNS
Dimensions: 40cm x 71cm x 16cm.
Weaponry: CO<sub>2</sub> powered flipper running at 750psi. It is capable of 45 flips per match, and flinging people 45cm into the air.
Srimech: Pretty obvious.
Strengths: They're a gang that's seen all they'll ever need, and they're fucking fast. And that isn't at the cost of acceleration. 0-15mph is 0.85 seconds.
Weaknesses: Lack of armour, and lack of OoTA capability. Also can't push heavyweights too well.

Name: Celeritas
Weight: 100kg
Armour: The bulkheads are made of 40mm 7075 Aluminium, with the armour panels being 3.2mm Grade 5 Titanium. (Plans for a future anti-HS config)
Drive: 48.1v LEM130 per side.
Power: Two 6000mAh 7S (25.9v) LiPos, and two 6000mAh 6S (22.2v) LiPos, giving a total of 12000mAh 13S (48.1v)
Motivation: 4 inch rubber tyres on HDPE hubs.
Top Speed: 15mph.
Ground Clearance: 2mm at the back, and angling from there.
Turning Circle: fuck off
Dimensions: 58cm x 100cm x 56cm (including the disc)
Weaponry: 38kg Inertia-style disc, powered by a 13S LEM-200, spinning up to 1500rpm, and 22kJ in 6 seconds. Tip speed of 95mph. (Bar planned for future anti-HS)
Srimech: the arena floor
Strengths: Lots of bite, also magnets, so no gyro, and lots of wedge
Weaknesses: Not much raw power, and a floor of 3mm Ali.

Also, wait I thought the pressure limit for N2 got increased to 3750 psi b/c that's what you can put in a 4500 psi tank under Robogames Rules.[/quote]The pressure limit for N<sub>2</sub> in C&B has typically been 2400PSI, as I believe that's what either the old RFL or RoboGames was running. I can change it if need be, though. The rules aren't completely set in stone yet, so... :)

Name: Dysprosinator
Shape: Cheese wedge with a horizontal triangle shaped back
Colour: Chrome silver on the entire chassis, front wedge is sky blue
Weight: 100kg
Armour: Mostly titanium on the chassis, polycarbonate panneling on top seeing through the tracks, hardox wedge painted sky blue. The skirts are also titanium.
Drive: 4 Lem 130 motors
Power: Nicad batteries
Motivation: Tracks
Top Speed: 20 mph
Ground Clearance: Front 0, Back 2
Turning Circle: No turning circle
Dimensions: 0.40 x 0.95 x 0.70
Weaponry: Electronic lifter/clamp wedge
Srimech: The weapon itself
Notes: The robot has electric liniar acuators that has a limit of at a few mm of ground clearance of at least 1/4, this will also prevent the drivetrain from being effected since the gap between the arena floor and the chassis itself would be enough to keep the power and locomotion going as normal. The hinged skirts are with angle limiters so they're lifted off the ground with the chassis raised, but contact the ground with the chassis lowered, therefore protecting the tank threads rather well. The robot also features polycarbonate panneling at theback to stop the opponent from monster trucking.
Strengths: Durable armament and decent pushing power
Weaknesses: Ground clearance adjustment would buy a few seconds.


Shape: Rectangle, wedge from the back.
Colour: Bright Red with Yellow name text
Weight: 100kg
Armour: Hardox
Drive: 4 A28-400 motors
Power: 12V Lithium-Ion Batteries
Motivation: Wheels
Top Speed: 15 mph
Ground Clearance: Front & Rear 1
