ARC All Stars Redux

Post by Badnik96 » Fri Jan 31, 2014 5:26 pm

Yep it's back. 32 teams of robots from all eras battling it out to see which is the best. I took the best of 31 teams' rosters, and for the 32nd team I chose some "one-hit wonder" bots from teams that didn't have much success, IE Miscreant or Gila.

Voting for the first round will end Friday, February 7, 2014.

Yay! Thanks for doing this. This is cool. I'll have my votes in sometime tomorrow. Lot of interesting first round matches.

Voted, though I've never seen Yeeow! Hot Bees, Miscreant, Mister/Majestic, SHUTout, or Endeavor so that made it a little difficult.

I just wish to state that I sincerely doubt the veracity of a tournament billed as "All-Star" where Warper is the MW of choice from my team. Was this just decided by whichever bot fought the most matches per weight class per team? If so, I'm surprised it's Babaganoush and not Pinpoint. Guess I need to look it up again.

I just picked the robot from each weight class with the most success/wins. Looking at your record, it looked like Warper had the best. Unless you want a different robot?

Warper's fine enough. Just that he's become something of a joke now, in kind of a running gag way. Besides, the voting's begun. No need to rock the boat.

Kinda sad, I always liked Dr. Inferno esque designs. When I almost roped my friend into ARC, his LW for LoRE was going to be one. Maybe I can get him back for FRR...

Lethal Injection 2, Tornedron, Dreadnought, and Waterloo Sunset are in there? Awesomeness, it'll be interesting to see how they do against the ARC greats. Just out of interest though, what do Chain-Linked Launcher, F-Bomb and There Goes the Night Train look like? Just so I'll have some idea of what I'm up against.

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

F-Bomb was a "wedge". And by wedge I mean not really.

There Goes the Night Train is the foulest, most vile piece of shit to ever grace the face of robotic combat and if Tony had any decency, he would go back in time and stop it from ever existing.

But that's just my take.

LOL There Goes The Night Train wasn't all bad. It had such a glaring weakness that one was always glad to go up against it. Funny how I was the first one to notice it like 5 or 6 weeks in though. His playoff hopes went egregiously downhill after Rascal embarrassed the living fuck out of it.
