Baba Vanga is predicting that the 4 billionth and final rammer will be black. Hopefully this is true.

you have to put 5 points on a lifter to get the bonus. we put in that rule to nerf lifters, and it didn't do enough

now we have a new rule about crap on the floor, and that doesn't do enough either

:headache:

we're just gonna roll with it this tournament, but for future tournaments I'm thinking about making the damage scale more aggressive, which should fix the general problem

Actually, I think that Patrick meant that you wouldn't even be able to apply a non-weapon armour bonus to them. While I think that would go a long way towards remedying the problem, it's also highly unrealistic in terms of the irl game.

So in a way, it's almost like, either spinners or rammers will have to be incredibly overpowered at one time. Given the choice though, I'd much prefer it to be rammers- given that I feel there's a lot more skill and strategy to using a predominantly drivetrain-based machine effectively than a spinner, which under most circumstances can just get by with RPs consisting entirely of "spin up, drive into the other guy, repeat, and hope I don't die first".

It's actually quite difficult to drive a spinner in real life. And there's certainly more skill involved in engineering one, as opposed to a weaponless doorstop on wheels.

Also none of this matters in fic.
