I'm convinced that getting the same damage scale as hammers makes them about as viable as they are IRL tbh. if a lot of others disagree with me we can maybe put something together tho

4)
-Walkers will have 2 extra points to reflect their weight bonus. They gain no weapon armor bonuses, are limited to 2 torque, are limited to a maximum of 10 armor (this includes armor bonuses), and the legs will receive a -1 bonus to their armor.
-Shufflers will receive no weight bonus and therefore no stat bonus. They also have no stat limitations!
Walkers and shufflers also must have a render or diagram of their leg system. you're not expected to be perfect, but I don't want any "it has legs lul" bots - put some love into your creation damnit.

thought I already had a little something about modeling the legs but I didn't, so rule updated.

Can we buff shock damage to use the "half of weapon power - armor" rule so it actually affects robots that aren't Hobart?

seems reasonable to me. anyone object?

also signup page updated as of today. 3 or less spots still open in every division, assuming no droppers

Heavyweight replaced with something more legal and less jackass-y.

"->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. All entries must include a STATIC IMAGE of the bot: you are welcome to also post sketchfab renders, but we should be accomodating to those on mobile or with low quality PCs"

added the following. will also update shock damage as soon as I figure out what exactly it is I'm changing.

these should be the last of the changes, I think I've remembered everything now :V

Actually updated the masterpost again. it took me this long because I'm a lazy fuck :V

TBR and Trihunter are both completely in reserves right now, HFL has one bot (middleweight IIRC) in reserves. please let me know if I missed any new stuff outta anyone - I got Brute Force out of ferret, which I think was the only one?

also we still have exactly ZERO WRITERS other than me. yall gotta put in both halves of the bargain if we want a functional tournament
