Week 1 Results

Lightweights

Heat A: Gauntlet

Ramshock vs Solstice

Ramshock vs Solstice
Ramshock clears the first path with remarkable ease – just a slight hiccough on the cans. Solstice ahs a bit of trouble with the wooden panel – its wedge gets stuck under it, and after two attempts, TBR turns around to get through that obstacle, and then turns back around to make it through the cans. By this point ramshock’s already dealt with its brick wall, and is almost through the cinderblocks, which means that we’re gonna have these two bots meet up in the middle of TBR’s side. Nothing exciting really happens – ramshock ends up riding over solstice’s wedge and just monstertrucking to the other side, and keeps on keepin’ on. Neither bot has much of a problem on the returning end (solstice does lose a few seconds when it turns around to go over the wooden panel again, remembering what happened the previous time), which means that ramshock gets up into the forest first, and breaks a few panels before solstice gets up there in reverse.
TBR makes no attempt to fight Ramshock, and goes right to breaking glass panels. Ramshock does make an attempt to fight Solstice, and gets under the front edge of a relatively unaware Solstice lifting it onto its side and then pushing it off of the forest. From there, clearing the glass and securing the win is easy as pie for pat.
THREE POINTS, and the victory, go to RAMSHOCK. TWO POINTS, for a quality performance are given to Solstice.

Barry Stanton Tribute Bot vs Teardrop

Since Playzooki has been arrested for ...disturbing... sexual crimes, this gauntlet will just be teardrop vs itself. And, well, that proves to be in and of itself quite a challenge, since it is pretty much the opposite of a design that can easily make it through the gauntlet. Using the hammer as a plow only works so well, since he has to constantly keep firing it just a little bit to not torque-reaction it to the rear, and the bot’s poor control really isn’t helping. It gets stranded on the cans for a good half minute, but is able to monster truck the brick and cinderblock walls without too much trouble. It then gets stranded on the cans on the other side for even longer. This, combined with its struggles getting up the ramp to the forest of glass, means that it doesn’t actually finish the event before time is called. It did still make it to the forest of Glass, however, so...
TWO POINTS, and the technical victory, go to TEARDROP!

[hr]
Heat B: Combat

Honeycomb vs Angel of the North

I’m counting an FF as a KO and giving THREE POINTS to ANGEL OF THE NORTH!

The Gourmet vs Mind in a P-R-O-G-R-A-M

Gourmet shows MIP its rear. Is this a robotic mating ritual? I guess it’s just flat out aggression, as he slams hard into MIP in a rush, and gets batted to the side, the right side spike already a bit deformed. Gourmet keeps coming, but keeps getting batted away, the right tooth getting majorly deformed on the second hit. The third hit comes in and it looks like MIP is finally getting corralled to a corner. Gourmet’s able to stay on MIP’s ass for quite a while after this, preventing a full spin up, but also not doing anything with its weapon, which makes me think one of those hits might have taken out something important. For that purpose. Eventually MIP’s able to make enough space to get up to a decent speed, and the next hit sees the entire right (left?) side of Gourmet go to kind of an extreme tilt as the entire lifter bar kinda... bends upwards in the middle. This lifts its wheels off the ground on that side, and after MIP gets in another few love nibbles, he taps out to prevent further damage.
Your winner, by KO (getting THREE POINTS) in 1:19, is Mind in a PROGRAM!

[hr]
Heat C: Pinball

Endless Clowns' Run

Clowns spins up, and smashes through the nearby barrel stacks. Ouch, that's gonna be a nasty clean-up job, shrapnel everywhere. Having thoroughly decimated both barrel stacks, Gabe tears through the car door, before repositioning and slipping through, to hit the point tyre, before looping around the arena to target the opposite tyre, slipping through a little quicker even. As time ticks down, Gabe rushes for the multiball, just about getting there and activating it as the buzzer sounds.

Final score: 195 points.

Traposphere's Run

Traposphere immediately begins with a rush clean through the left stack of barrels, toppling five of them immediately. The sixth one goes on the reverse out, Wolf spinning the machine around as they drive clean across the arena for the far target. After a moment's hesitation to avoid a head-on collision, they sneak in and slap the tyre! Getting out proves more of a hassle, Traposphere getting nudged on one side and spun off course just as they escape the blockers, but the soon recover and sneak through a second blocker, taking that tyre as well. Traposphere has no issues with the second blocker, slipping out and gently booping the multiball, releasing the balls everywhere. Wolf attempts the other tyre, but the buzzer goes just as he gets past the blocker. Unlucky, mate.

Final score: 165 points.

The Revenge of Psychosprout's Run

TRoS speeds up and CLANG! The barrels go flying everywhere, scattered across the arena, one bouncing into the pit. Sprout's on the move again, rushing for the 50pt tyre, managing to sneak past the barrier on the way in, bounding off and crashing into the inside of the blocker. After a moment of recovery, they speed off again, pinballing off of the 75pt double barrier. After a bit of brute forcing, they get inside and tag the tyre. Now to get out, which proves difficult, but they get out soon enough, having just enough time to hit the 50pt button with a little fiddling, before the buzzer goes.

Final score: 205 points.

Override's Run

Override begins powering over the see-saw (glad to see it finally get some love), before slipping between the blockers and slamming the 75pt button. After a quick moment to reposition, NFX slips out, looping around and through the car doors, before dodging the blockers into the 50pt target. Rushing through both sets of barrels, though not bothering with cleaning up, Override just about slips through the blockers to smack the last 50 point bumper... Just after the buzzer goes. Almost the Pinball world record, though still an incredible score.

Final score: 220 points.

Overall event ranking:

1st: Override. 3 points.
2nd: The Revenge of Psychosprout. 2 points.
3rd: Endless Clowns. 1 point.
4th: Traposphere. 0 points.

Heavyweights

Heat A: Combat

Gigatron vs Hercules

The fight begins fairly quickly, with Gigatron spinning in place to try and stop an orbiting Hercules from getting around the side. TBR attempts a lunge, clipping a chunk off of Herc's rear right wheel, but leaving it open for Herc to grab onto that side panel, gripping down and beginning to lift it skyward. Gigatron drops out of the grip before it's tipped, though not before Herc's drawn them over to the Pulveriser, pressing them to the wall, letting them take a decent chunk of hazard damage before letting them continue. Once free, the two begin waltzing again, though this time Herc isn't so lucky, Gigatron tearing the already damaged rear wheel clean off this time. Gigatron gets slammed into the wall by the Pulveriser one more time before cease is called.

Aggression: 11-4 Hercules
Damage: 12-3 Gigatron
Strategy: 11-4 Hercules

Hercules wins 25-20. 2 points to them, 1 to Gigatron.

Boy Band vs The Animals

Boy Band never really starts, due to Playzooki being "suspiciously absent", The Animals waste no time in sticking it on the killsaws til it breaks even more.

The Animals win by KO. 3 points to them.

[hr]
Heat B: Gauntlet

Compound Fracture vs MiDAS

Both bots rocket around their halves of the diamond. They're practically mirror images of eachother, down the first straights, though MiDAS' forks poking down the rubble proves a quicker than CF shovelling under most of the walls, though CF has done a wonderful job of cleaning up after themselves. MiDAS makes it to the halfway point first, meeting Compound Fracture just as it busts through the concrete. MiDAS monstertrucks clean over Compound Fracture, heading through the mostly clear path CF made, whilst CF begins working through the mess made by MiDAS. MiDAS makes it to the ramp as CF just passes the final turn, getting to work on the glass, MiDAS taking a long loop along the right hand edge of the ring. Soon enough, CF catches up, and we get a good old sumo wedge fight, MiDAS rolling over CF as the remaining panels begin to get broken, CF struggling to make an offense as the wedgelets catch on the grille, negating any rushes. Eventually, the panels are all popped, and MiDAS is just close enough to pop it, mere seconds before CF rams them down the ramp.

3 points to MiDAS, 2 to Compound Fracture.

LowRider vs Neuromancer

Once again, it's a tight beginning, both bots making it through the panel and cans in similar time, Neuromancer leaving a few bits scattered about, whilst Lowrider takes a few cans for a ride. The second half takes its toll on LowRider, though, bringing a big pile of bricks, cans and concrete along as it meets Neuromancer. Neuromancer burrows through this makeshift wall, tilting LowRider skyward, shunting them back into the far wall, tipping it up against the wall, though not OotAing them. As Neuromancer moves down the final corner, Noisy folds LowRider's chassis to pop it free, getting back going on their loop around as Neuromancer begins popping glass. LowRider struggles through the rubble a bit, managing to make it in front of the main ramp, as Neuromancer pops the final sheet in the Forest of Glass, the finishing panel beginning to lower. LowRider's body shifts enough to allow them up the ramp, just as Neuromancer smashes the panel for victory.

3 points to Neuromancer, 2 to LowRider.

[hr]
Heat C: Labyrinth

Heian Alien vs Helepolis

The fuck are these bots lol. Also nice try rocket. Look up Suplex on the forum - Brad already bamboozled us into letting him torque-reaction with bots grabbed in his bot for an entire even, it's not gonna happen again Image . Also, that image is really not conductive to communicating what your bot is supposed to do lol.
ANYWHO, yeah, so there's no way that you get to put weapon armor on the entire chassis of your robot, Helepolis doesn't actually have any other plans for avoiding getting smashed to bits by the terrifyingly hideous walker it's in close quarters with, so uh, it kinda gets smashed to death by the hideous walker it's in close quarters with. Heian Alien then sets off for the flipper, and attempts to crawl past it like, 4 times before giving up (it has trouble getting traction with the super thin legs and it is HELLA long), and just crawling its way through the sandpit to a much easier victory, since all you need is to score once when your opponent is dead to get all the points and I don't feel like writing this awkward ass thing trying to get through other parts of the arena Image
Your winner, and collector of THREE POINTS, is HEIAN ALIEN! Helepolis unfortunately collects ZERO POINTS

Arms of the Law vs Heartbreaker

The winner gets the full three points so I see no obligation to write this one out Image . Your winner, gaining THREE POINTS, is ARMS OF THE LAW!

Due to the rather unfortunate banning of Playzooki, we've got another slot open in the tournament. If someone wants to get a team in this that hasn't already, let me know, and you can take Playzooki's slots and points in the tournament, starting from next week.

<big>Week 2 Results</big>

<big>Lightweights</big>

Heat A: Football

Round 1

Unfortunately Barry Stanton Tribute Bot didn't make it into the arena, leaving us with three bots. Enjoy your guaranteed points, lads.

The match begins, with Ramshock bull-rushing the ball, giving it a solid whack&#33; Unfortunately, due to the angle of the shot and the lack of control behind it, it bounces off at a right angle to the goal, taking a tap from Teardrop before landing near the far wall. Solstice is ready to capitalise on this, quickly scooping it up and punting it towards the goal, but Teardrop moves to rush them down, smashing its thwack hammer down on the top of the bot. Despite the assault, the ball sneaks past the blocker for a goaaaaaaaaaal&#33;

Solstice scores 3 points, and is removed from the second round.

Round 2

Ramshock once again rushes the ball, whilst Teardrop gives chase to try to catch them out. Both collide in front of the ball, but Ramshock gets the shot off, knocking it to the back of the net. GOAAAAAAAAAAL&#33;

Ramshock scores 2 points, Teardrop scores 1 point.

Mind in a P-R-O-G-R-A-M's Run
I feel like spinning up woulda helped here, as it takes MIP a mite longer to knock over a bunch of barrels with just a long chassis and a subpar drivetrain, but I guess that

<big>Week 3 Results</big>

<big>Lightweights</big>

Heat A: Combat

Ramshock vs Teardrop

Both bots explode out of the starting square, colliding quickly. Teardrop begins beating on Ramshock's raised wedge, causing a rather nasty welt in the middle as Ramshock bulldozes Teardrop into the far wall. Teardrop manages to bounce away, and immediately rushes for Ramshock, and manages to successfully get a strike on one of Ramshock's front wheels before Pat turns it around. Pat begins shunting Teardrop again, but the struck wheel sheds its tread on the way over to the wall, and the damage to the front wedge is only getting worse, actually starting to split the metal a little at the tip. Ramshock keeps shunting Teardrop around though, regardless of damage taken, until the buzzer sounds.

Aggression: 12-3 Ramshock
Damage: 14-1 Teardrop
Strategy: 11-4 Ramshock

Your winner, earning TWO POINTS, is Ramshock&#33; Teardrop gets a single point as well.

Solstice vs bye

Solstice gets THREE POINTS by doing absolutely nothing&#33;

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We're at the halfway point of the heats, so I reckon it's time for the...

<big>CURRENT STANDINGS</big>

Lightweights

Heat A

It's tight between first and second place, between Solstice, on 11 points, and Ramshock, on 10. Trailing a bit in third place is Teardrop, with 6 points, and far back in last is... Wait, no, only 3 bots in this heat. Still all to play for here.

Heat B

Another tight top spot here, with Mind in a P-R-O-G-R-A-M in first with 10 points, and The Gourmet just behind with 9. Angel of the North has a bit of catching up to do at 4 points, and Honeycomb is yet to get off of the starting line, with 0.

Heat C

Override's almost got a perfect run so far, with 11 points, the only bot close behind being Endless Clowns, on 9 points. Third and fourth are taken by Traposphere and The Revenge of Psychosprout, with 3 and 2 points respectively. There's still a chance for them, though. Perhaps we'll see a Reverse Kirk Kidd in the coming weeks? Who knows?

Heavyweights

Heat A

We've got a tie at the moment, between Hercules and The Animals, both on ten points. Gigatron;s not far behind in third, with 7 points. This heat could go any way&#33; Except for Boy Band. We don't talk about Boy Band.

Heat B

In probably the tightest heat thus far in the whole tournament, Neuromancer and MiDAS remain tied at 9 points, with Compound Fracture on 8. LowRider is falling behind a little with only 3 points, unfortunately.

Heat C

Heian Alien strides ahead in this heat, on 11 points, with Arms of the Law in hot pursuit, at 8 points. Heartbreaker and Helepolis are floundering, at 2 and 1 points, only via a double FF.

<big>Week 5 Results</big>

<big>Lightweights</big>

Heat A: Bowling

Ramshock's Runs

First run down, Pat lines up for a shot on the centre, swivelling a bit on the way down, hitting the middle pins with the edge of the wedge, plowing down a path clean through the centre. After cleanup, only pins 7, 9 and 10 are still standing. Pat prepares for another shot, and... does an almost identical second shot. Unfortunately, he's already hit all the pins that were there, so only just about clips pin 9 over.

Final score: 8 pins (7-1).

Solstice's Runs

TBR runs Solstice dead straight down the aisle, in a fairly slow shot. Solstice drifts down the lane, knocking out a few pins at the front. The shot's actually so slow that Solstice comes to a stop more or less in the middle of the triangle. The remaining upright pins are numbers 4, 7, 8 and 10. The second run proves a little faster, TBR managing to take out pins 4 and 8.

Final score: 8 pins (6-2).

Teardrop's Runs

Noisey starts off along the left side of the lane, spinning to the right on the approach. The sheer width of the bot knocks down pins 1 and 2 directly, sending the left side clattering down, whilst Teardrop's body slides through the right side of the triangle, knocking all but pin 10 down from the impact. Just before Teardrop comes to a stop by pin 10, Noisey fires the axe, clobbering the last pin with a solid thwack. It teeters and totters before collapsing. STERRRRRRRRRRRR-IKE&#33;

Ok, the formatting is gonna be a bit simpler than the usual, because I'm using new tech and I can't really be bothered. Sorry about the delay for this. Gabe aso left the writing staff so I'm going it alone for now. Feel free to chip in if you can.

Lightweights

Heat A: Wetropolis

Ramshock's Run

Pat's broken out the Home Depot stock, and coated Ramshock in some good old Flex Tape. Hopefully he doesn't mind getting all the residue off for later events. Ramshock starts in the bottom left corner, beelining for the first target, right through the deep patch, slowing the bot significantly as the base of the chassis goes under. Pat makes it to the spot without much further hassle, and reverses around it at around the 20 second mark. He then goes for "the next one". Which one is next? I don't have a clue, let's just assume the top left on because I flipped a coin and it said so. It makes it there fairly uneventfully, circling it, then heading for the third one, right through the yellow bit, slowing them once more to a crawl, taking a good while to reach and score at the final target from the second. On the way back to the start, a plume of white smoke begins pouring from the taped up seams of Ramshock, so Pat hot-foots it back to the finish. Seems the Flex Tape did enough though, as Ramshock just about makes it to the exit, though Pat's got his work cut out for him in the pits for the next event.

Final time: 1:34

Teardrop's Run

Noisey takes a more cautious approach, looping around the deeper patch to get to the first bollard. This ends up a bit slower than Pat's route, but Noisey's still making good time towards the second pole, weaving through the green patch to reach it, circling it too. One last, longer loop around the northern edge of the arena completes Noisey's collection or targets, looping around the south-west edge to complete the loop. Teardrop looks good as new afterwards, though perhaps in need of a little towelling off. But has the extended route taken a toll on his final time?

Final time: 1:47

Final standings
1st: Ramshock, earning THREE POINTS&#33;
2nd: Teardrop, earning TWO POINTS&#33;

Heat B: 2v2 Combat

Alright. Since I'm the only writer left, I'm gonna have to try hard to not make it look biased. Please hit me up if you want to write for this. Here we go...

The match begins with Gourmet rushing for MIAP, with Angel attempting to block, but just ends up awkwardly monstertrucking over it. Gourmet blocks the full body drum before it can get to ass-blasting speed, slamming it into the far wall. Meanwhile, Honeycomb's on the approached, hunting down the awkwardly flailing Angel as it attempts to free its partner from the jaws of death. It tanks the impact of the blade, pushing it along and sinking repetitive hammer blows into its chassis. Gourmet eventually lets MIAP free, as Honeycomb discards the lifeless chassis of Angel. MIAP bravely runs away, managing to spin up a bit before Gourmet comes in, scoops them up and delivers them back to Honeycomb, who deals the final blow to win the match.

The Gourmet and Honeycomb win by KO in 1:12. THREE POINTS to them both!

Heat C: Labyrinth

Traposphere vs Endless Clowns

Ignore me being an idiot and not finding Gabe's thread.

It seems Wolf made the fatal "mistake" of being in close quarters with a spinner, since they're both initially trapped in the gates, and not planning anything at all for it. Clowns spins up pretty quickly, and tears shreds into the front wedge of Traposphere, nearly tossing it out of the circle early, following up with more hits swiftly after. By the time the turntable spins enough to allow escape, Traposphere isn't moving any more, leaving Gabe to take on the actual tasks. Neither the rollers nor spikes provide much issue for the bot, but it struggles to get much shove on the box, but eventually gets it out of the way. After an easy adventure over the flipper, Gabe camps the gates until they open, going to grab the final panel.

Endless Clowns point total: 105 points
Traposphere point total: 0 points

Endless Clowns earns THREE POINTS&#33; Traposphere gets nothing.

Override vs The Revenge of Psychosprout

Since Rocket didn't show up it's just a case of if NFX can make it around to get points quick enough, and the answer is yes

Override earns THREE POINTS&#33;

Heavyweights

Heat A: The Findlay Special

Only one person showed up, so instead of doing the event we just gave Attackfrog and some of the filming crew some safety gear and sledgehammers, and had some fun.

Hercules gets THREE POINTS&#33;

Heat B: 2v2 Combat

Holy crap, an event all four participants RP'd for? It's a miracle&#33; Anyway, let's get this clusterfuck on the road&#33;

The two split off immediately, CF going for Neuromancer and the two locking horns, as MiDAS bull rushes, lifts and tips over LowRider with ease, sticking them into the wall near a pulveriser. Neuromancer pushes CF back a little, but HFL J-hooks away to re-angle, only to get scooped up from the rear by MiDAS and tipped up and over. The two bully the inverted CF around for a while, until LowRider manages to free itself, coming back in to the rescue, shoving MiDAS into the side wall, though NFX manages to recover and go back on the offensive, slipping under LowRider's wedge once more and hammering away with the axe. The match continues like this, with neither team able to completely incapacitate another member of the other's team, until the final buzzer goes.

Aggression: 9-6 MiDAS & Neuromancer
Damage: 8-7 MiDAS & Neuromancer
Strategy: 8-7 MiDAS & Neuromancer

Your winners, earning TWO POINTS each, are MiDAS and Neuromancer&#33;

Heat C: Collateral Damage

Oh cock, half the heat forgot to show again. Arms of the Law begins speeding through the piles of wood boxes, streaking through a cloud of red, whilst Heian Alien heads for the opposite wall, hammering through the six tougher boxes there. Pat begins working backwards and forwards across the length of the arena, leaving all the metal and gold boxes for his more viciously weaponed opposition, as well as missing a handful of lucky boxes that dodged the onslaught. Once cleaned up with their batch, Heian Alien stumbles through a bunch of wood boxes, squashing them on impact, heading for the corner and smacking the gold box open, before targeting the other metals. Time calls as the two end up rather close together, Heian Alien tucked in the corner, just in front of Arms of the Law.

Final scores:
Heian Alien: 41 points
Arms of the Law: 27 points

Heian Alien scores THREE POINTS! Arms of the Law gets TWO POINTS!

Week 7 Results

Lightweights

Heat A: 2v2 Combat

Absolutely nobody showed up. Guess I'll flip a coin...

Ramshock and Teardrop earn THREE POINTS!

Heat B: Collateral Damage

It's the most packed match of the night, with a whopping THREE participants! All three bots speed off into the boxes, MIAP proving slowest off the mark as it spins up. AotN thwacks away at their metal boxes, though CLANGs off of the gold one in the middle of their bunch. Gourmet plows through one set of wooden boxes, lining up for a second, as MIAP approached their set of boxes, and disappears in an explosion of teal and golden smoke. That's a lotta damage! After managing to recover, MIAP begins moving for a second set, crossing the arena diagonally, as AotN finishes their first set of metal boxes, and Gourmet annihilates yet more wooden boxes. MIAP mows through even more crates, disappearing in a plume of multicoloured fog, AotN managing to make it to their second set of metals as Gourmet busts up even more wooden boxes, as time is called.

Mind in a P-R-O-G-R-A-M: 54
Angel of the North: 27
The Gourmet: 28

Mind in a P-R-O-G-R-A-M earns THREE POINTS!, The Gourmet earns TWO POINTS, and Angel of the North gets ONE POINT.

Heat C: King of the Hill

Only one person RP'd, oops. Override gets to goof around in the arena before eventually filling out the criteria to win.

Override gets THREE POINTS! Everyone else gets nothing.

Heavyweights

Heat A: King of the Hill

Half the field didn't show up. Hercules begins working up their first hill, whilst The Animals split up, both attempting to scale their hills. Herc has no issues whatsoever with theirs, easily slipping over and booping over their first flag. One of the Animals gets a nice angle to progress up the hill, but the other is less lucky, getting a bit stuck. It takes the second returning to aid it to get it up, and knocks down the second flag. Herc, meanwhile, continues to clamber the hills with ease, claiming their second flag. Bot teams dash for the central mound, with Animals struggling a bit, due to their lower ground clearance and wedged fronts. Herc catches up, having no issue whatsoever with the rougher surface and angle, battering down the flag!

Hercules earns THREE POINTS! Animals get TWO POINTS! and nobody else gets any.

Heat B: Wetropolis

Wew, we've got half a field again. Including Gabe FFing. RIP Boat Config.

MiDAS' Run

MiDAS speeds out of the bottom right exit, heading for the east pole. They get to it quickly, looping around it, then moving to the next, deviating a bit to not hit the red area. After an uneventful second loop, onto the third one, carefully passing around the two hazards. Once the final bollard is looped, NFX steers MiDAS towards the exit... The wrong exit. An official reminds him he's got to enter and exit at the same point, and MiDAS is steered back on course to finish. It'll hurt the time, but he didn't do awfully.

Final Time: 1:52

Compound Fracture's Run

HFL starts in the top right corner, and has drawn a nice little map to make this a bit easier. Thanks, mate.
He moves for the east pole first, sticking to shallower waters, stopping and looping around easily. Following the border of the two depths of water, CF makes it to the second pole without much hassle. Straying into deeper water for a bit allows him to snag the last one, then dash back to the start line. An uneventful run, but definitely a fast one.

Final time: 1:29

THREE POINTS to Compound Fracture, and TWO POINTS to MiDAS.

Heat C: 2v2 Combat

Nobody showed up to fight Heian Alien and Arms of the Law. Enjoy your free THREE POINTS!, lads.
