LET US DISCUSS THINGS!

To kick things off

SCORPION1M, what do you mean with "8-(6 for wedge)-Armour" in your description of "a true hero"? Do you mean your wedge has 6 armour, or gets a bonus of 6 (thus becoming 14, which would result in an armour stat for the rest of your bot of 8-6=2)?

but the amour on the wedge is 6

so everything that isn't the wedge has armour 2

Thing is, if you had NOT done this 6&#124;2 split (which isn't part of the rules anyway), your ENTIRE armour would be the base stat of 8 you use. Given 8 is higher than 6 AND higher than 2, you are better off just sticking with 8.


You CAN give your wedge a bonus, if you want to, which may have been your intention (even though you failed at that, as I said before). To do say, simply decide on a number and ADD that to the base stat of 8. So a bonus of 2 would result in a wedge armour of 8+2=10. IN THAT CASE, according to the rules, the REST of your bot gets an armour deduction equal to that same number. So if your wedge becomes 8 PLUS 2, the rest becomes 8 MINUS 2, which is 6.

In other news, I have tentative entries in every class except MW. That will probably be an updated version of Suplex, but I want to try and convert it to a VS, in which case I should probably use a different name. But then it isn't really Suplex anymore.

:ermm:

I still don't know why they didn't just change the name to "Whomp" or "Thump."

UH OH, IT'S HOTDEALSINTEXAS AGAIN TEASING ANOTHER ROBOT DESIGNED ENTIRELY AROUND A GIMMICKY NAME.



AAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH


WELL I SAW THE THING COME INTO THE ARENA

IT HAD ONE BIG TOOTH AND A COLSON WHEEL

I COMMENCED TO SHAKIN' AND I SAID OO-WEE

IT LOOKS LIKE A PURPLE ROBOT EATER TO ME

IT WAS A ONE-TOOTHED ONE-WHEELED SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER

ONE-TOOTHED ONE-WHEELED SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER

(ONE-TOOTHED ONE-WHEELED SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER)

SURE LOOKED STRANGE TO ME (ONE TOOTH?)


WELL THEY TURNED ON THE SWITCH AND THE CROWD STARTED TO FLEE

I ASKED "HOTDEALSINTEXAS, WHY SO MUCH KE?"

I HEARD HIM SAY IN A VOICE SO GRUFF

'CUZ THERE'S TOO MANY WEDGES AND THEY'RE TOO TOUGH


IT WAS A ONE-TOOTHED ONE-WHEELED SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER

ONE-TOOTHED ONE-WHEELED SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER

(ONE-TOOTHED ONE-WHEELED SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER)

SURE LOOKED STRANGE TO ME (ONE WHEEL?)


I SAID MR PURPLE ROBOT EATER WHAT'S YOUR LINE

HE SAID EATIN' PURPLE ROBOTS AND IT SURE IS FINE

BUT THAT'S NOT THE REASON WHY I'M REALLY HERE

(HE TRIED TO BUILD A BOT WITHOUT USING ANY GEARS)


WELL F*** MY LIFE, DIRECT DRIVE SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER

MELTY BRAIN, TOTES INSANE, SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER

(HOORAY FOR LEXAN)

SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER

SURE LOOKS STRANGE TO ME


AND THEN THEY STARTED THE MATCH, IT STARTED SPINNING AROUND

AND THEN IT STARTED TRANSLATING, REALLY COVERING GROUND

IT WAS LOOKING PRETTY GOOD UNTIL HE BOUNCED OFF MY DRUM

(cacophony of crashing noises as robot hockey pucks around the arena)


WELL, BLESS MY LUCK, HOCKEY PUCK, SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER

MOTOR FRIED, ON ITS SIDE, SPINNING PURPLE ROBOT EATER

(BLUE SQUARE, SHOW ME MOTION&#33;)

COUNTING OUT THE ROBOT EATER

WHAT A SIGHT TO SEE


WELL A FEW MONTHS LATER, WHAT DO YOU KNOW,

I SAW THE SAME BUILDER ON A TV SHOW

HE WAS BLOWING IT OUT, A' REALLY KNOCKING 'EM DEAD

BUT INSTEAD OF A MELTY HE HAD ANOTHER BORING WEDGE

(saxophone solo)




I'm not sorry at all.

I am tempted to enter 4 scaled versions of a Horizontal spinner, but I saw something about "no lineup changes" or something similar so I won't do that.
