ROBOT2 FWs Shitbot Showdown: Runaway Rabbit vs Bruxish

Post by Trihunter » Fri Dec 21, 2018 4:57 pm

RR: Speed: 6 / Traction: 5 / Torque: 3 / Weapon: 5 / Armour: 11

Bruxish: Speed: 7 / Weapon: 8 (7/1 for fins) / Armour: 10 / Traction: 3 / Torque: 2

Ok, let's keep this simple. Bruxish outspeeds us, but has fuck-all for traction. Our aim is simply capitalise on that. Take it slow out the gate, wait for them to close in, then feint around them. Capitalise on their shitty traction, scoop up their edge and begin tossing them around, towards the walls. Hopefully we can score a ring-out, though the sheer aggression points of the chain is probably sufficient regardless. Once they escape, get back to hounding, focusing on scooping under them and restarting a flip chain again. Be wary of Bruxish self-righting to get out of our way, though, and be ready if there's a chance it'll go off. Overall, keep up a fairly aggressive, hounding strategy, forcing and punishing the numerous mistakes their drivetrain will cause.

I'm faster with a more powerful flipper and the better wedge thanks to the tongue and the fins. Armour doesn't matter in this fight and my traction is so bad that I'm just going to go all out driving it.

At the start, go full speed straight into it, get under it and flip just before we reach a wall. Then turn, line up with RR and run full speed into it again, again flipping just before the wall. Do this every time and use the full length of the arena in every attack.
