FW sportsman event
Signups close Saturday 7th at midnight. Remember this is meant to go quick. You might get a little extension but you must confirm the stats of your bot by then.
Format is 8 bot single elimination bracket.
Also we got a Challonge Bracket
-> There's a soft RP length limit of 400 words.
-> Use proper grammar and spelling; if we can't understand what you're saying, you aren't allowed to get mad about it :V
-> Fight cards will be posted on Sunday usually (as are results, mostly), and you will have one week to post your RPs. If the fight card is, for whatever reason, late, RPs will still be due on Saturday, barring some really long delay.
-> All RPs are due Saturday at midnight Eastern time. For consistency's sake, no late RPs will be accepted; if you can't RP on time or something comes up, get someone to RP for you.
-> If a robot has configurations that change the stat allocations of said robot (ex. Most swiss-army bots), or change the style of weapon (ex. a robot that can attach either a vertical or horizontal spinner - this should cover the rest of the swiss-army designs :P), its user must notify its opponent which configuration it is using. Other bots are not required to do so, but you're welcome to do so (especially if someone asks and it's not integral to your strategy - remember, don't be a dick :V).
->Fights will be judged for a total of 45 points, divided equally among 3 categories; Aggression (who initiated the attack, who's running away, who's running into fights, use of weapons - this is all regardless of how intelligent it was to do these things), Damage (obvious, I'd hope), and Control (similar to the old criteria's strategy; takes into account the intelligence of actions like a spinner running away to get their weapon up to speed, or a driver who refuses to abandon a strategy even though it is clearly not working).
Stats & stuff:
We will be using the REDDIT/CBC/Whatever it's called ruleset
-> Sportsman event, Spinners are capped at 7 power
-> Mandatory active weapon
-> Melty brains have a 5 point bonus to traction which applies only to spinup time, just like it was in ROBOT3. This of course is not
going to matter because they are also limited to 7 damage.
-> Projectile weapons are not subject to the weapon self-damage rules.
->Administrators reserve the right to modify a bot's individual stats based on discrepancies with the picture of the design. The administrators also have the right to reject any robot submission, stat allocation or design aspect that is considered to be unfair or exploiting the rules in any way. Basically i get to ban obvious exploits.
->All information about adjustable set-ups must be stated in the original post, linked albums or other such things may contain additional pictures to avoid clutter, but should not unintentionally hide extra information.
For the arena, we are breaking in borrowing the battlebox like we did in REDDIT. It's a bit big for this weight class but that shouldn't cause many problems
