CBC3 SHW Week 8: Hartmann's Youkai Bot II vs Phantasmic Slammer

Hartmann's Youkai Bot IIPhantasmic Slammer
Speed: 4Speed: 8
Traction: 2Traction: 7
Torque: 1Torque: 2
Weapon: 16Weapon: 2
Armour: 7Armour: 11 (+2 to the front of the bot including the side wedges and the front of the flipper)
6-toothed disk declared.

Damage notes: We deal 3 damage to the plow and 7 to the chassis. We also probably deal a lot of damage to the floor but that's not as important.

Spin up, get out of our corner and keep the blade facing them. Obviously flanking isn't an option, but spinning them away with hits is. If they close in and try to flank us, pivot the chassis and push in so they get a faceful of blade instead. Keep spinning as much as possible, backing off if need be to get back to speed. Ideally, they'll give us a chance to smash up something other than the plow (take this opportunity immediately, to close out the match quickly), but if that doesn't happen, smashing up the plow so much that we render it useless or bend it so it hampers movement is also okay.

Overall, play sorta defensive, try to pressure them somewhat with strikes until they can't recover quickly enough to dodge a strike on a vulnerable section. Avoid getting stuck in the wall.

Best of luck to the opposition.

this is kind of a lucky arena for me since there's no hazards to weave around meaning i can just flat out box-rush them. so that's the plan here. rush in, try to strike him opposite his direction of spin to reduce damage, and get an early flip in. the way his bot's designed, it should be drastically less effective inverted, and there's enough weight hanging off the front where he'll probably struggle with driving properly, especially with that pointed front end digging into the wooden floor. so the goal here is to invert him and then go full wedge. my wheels are tucked nicely behind the wedge and are lower than the flipper so there's no fear of him clipping them on impact. just keep up the offensive until the fight ends or one of us dies. if he gets up to speed before he's flipped, then go full wedge to reduce damage to the flipping mechanism. he only has 2 traction so he'll spin around a lot on big hits, which should give me a good opportunity to feed him to the wall and invert him once he's slowed.

good luck tri and may the better bot win.
