New Tournament Idea

Post by NWOWWE » Mon Apr 13, 2015 10:15 pm

Okay, so Chris and I were discussing older designs and came up with what could be a fun exhibition tournament.

The idea would be for everyone to enter using their team from their very first tournament in ARC (i.e. my very first tournament was ARC Vengeance, so that would be the team I would use).

There would be some leeway with this, you could use any version of that bot you have since used in any completed/currently ongoing tournament, however you could not enter a brand new version of the bot that has not yet completed (basically no coming up with a brand new version just to compete here). The exception to that rule would be if a CAD of that particular bot would no longer exist, in which case a new CAD could be made, provided it was an accurate recreation of the existing bot (there would likely be very few bots this would actually apply to).

Additionally, to complete the throwback nature of the tournament it would be done under Double Elimination format (this would also shorten the length of the tournament considerably).

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

Sounds good. Although considering Bomb and Dreadnought have swapped weight classes since FRR Dead Zone (Where they first appeared along with War Bastard and Lethal Injection), would that be OK?

Thunder Ball is a heavy now. Do I just swap it and Sgt. Slaughter?

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

I feel I have very recently been born anew, and that LoRE 2 marks the first outing of the current me.

As such, I must enter my LoRE 2 lineup.

LW: Mr. D
MW: Latvian Gambit
HW: Jackelyn Cryderman
SHW: Mandetta

Well this is unusual, because I made new versions of all of my ARC Armageddon team, but only Kraze has since competed in anything. The stat system's changed, though, so I'd assume we'd be allowed to change the stats if needs be.

LW: Terabyte II
MW: Cyclone
HW: Kraze
SHW: Incision
Team Mongoose (358-215)
"The Colour of Awesome"

Braveheart / Crash Blossom / Depth Charge / Broken Ghost / Murder Death Unit / Agent X

RoBattle
Override - Heats: 19 pts / Finals: 3 pts
MiDAS - Heats: 19 pts / Finals: 0 pts

it was a gigantic masturbation of polygons :v - That Kode Guy

Yeah, so let me go back to ARC Vengeance.

LW: Spike... Hey not bad. He's actually halfway legitimate these days.

MW: Sarge... Pretty cool, solid stuff so far.

HW: Truth or Consequences... Nice, I can dig this team&#33;

SHW: The Godfather... Wow, this is where it all goes wrong. :D Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately really) the original picture is long lost as far as I know. So I threw together a quick redraw and recreated it about as faithfully as I could:

Image

Yeah boy&#33; Check out that ground clearance&#33; And the goofy saw rack and silly side plows&#33; I'll confess I made one "upgrade" here... I made the picture of Marlon Brando far less pixilated than it used to be so that you could tell that it was... you know... actually a picture of a person. :P

so do I have to use the last version of WhipCoil that competed in something, or can I use the new 2WD version I've entered into Ruination?

It would have to be the last version that competed. Since Ruination hasn't started yet, it wouldn't count.
