Re: Ruination: The Upheaval - Discussion

GG! Not how I wanted the match to go of course, but it was a fair fight. Congrats on pushing this to the finish!

I hope you'll stick around and maybe enter some things in a casual way at least!

Re: ICECrown Quarter Finals: Chernabog vs. Screamroller (again)

Going head on didn't go all that well for me the first time. Neither did forgetting to RP and having to do it while waiting in line in front of a Ramen restaurant in SF. Whoops! So here's a strat that's a bit more thought out: Chernabog's a tiny bit speedier, but also a bit less controlled than Scre...

Re: New Era 2 Discussion

Let the New Era (2) begin! The bots are in, the signup post is locked, and this tournament is underway! All of the weight classes had an odd number of entries, so some robots were randomly assigned byes. This worked out reasonably equitably. Here are the brackets: Lightweight: https://challonge.com...

Re: ICECrown Week 6: Chernabog vs. Screamroller

Okay no time to look anything up as I forgot to do this and an now it for dinner so I'm going into this completely blind. I think Chernabog is the pincher? I'm going to go at it with the flails head on and try not to get pinched. Spin up to maybe knock it up. Not that way, perv. Hopefully wear it do...

Re: New Era 2 Discussion

It's (un)surprisingly hard to organize a tournament when you're on vacation! Nevertheless, it's time to start getting this show on the road. Here's some FAQs that people may or may not have actually been asking. Q. What the heck is going on here? A. This tournament is basically a joke. It's an oppor...

Re: ICECrown Week 5: Labrys vs. Screamroller

I'm currently writing this on my phone from my Grandma's basement, thanks Alex. Anyways, the RP. Labrys has lots of juicy open surfaces for some well aimed flails to bite into. Even if the angle of impact is going to be pretty shallow, it's 15 weapon on 7 armor. Labrys also has low traction, so it's...

Re: Icecrown Wk3: Screamroller vs Taranis

We've both got 6 armor and a lot of weapon power. One of the two of us is going to get blowed the F up. Here's why it's Taranis and not Screamroller: range. Taranis is a very compact robot and needs to get right up on me to hit me, but Screamroller's got its drum sticking out in the front and flails...

Re: ICECrown week 2: Hovercrap vs Screamroller

Well, crap. That's a powerful weapon. We're both going to be taking a good chunk of damage here. My advantage is my control: I have lots of it and a hovercraft has very little. I'll go in head on and hope the collision knocks Hovercrap into disarray, potentially giving me the chance to get at its re...
