    This sounds good, I especially like the quarter pipe side idea as I think it will suit more unorthodox designs. Regarding the 50% drop off rule I wouldn't worry about it. There was talk about changing it in the rules update vote a few months ago & even now most of the arenas I've fought in are less than 50%.

    Now that I think about it an arena with all of the dropout zones behind quarter pipes could be very interesting...

    Sounds intriguing, I'd like to see the sketch. The 50% drop off thing I thought only applied to arenas being used for AWS (it is one of the reasons why the BotFest one doesn't meet the criterion for it).

    For some reason I can’t change the orientation on my phone...

    So apologies about the quality of the artwork, I’ll spare you all the concept work and present the ‘finished’ design! I still can’t decide whether to use this kind of pyramid shape, or go for something that wraps around the corner however, this may be a decision to be made at the time... or I might make both and try them out.

    The battle box will become part of the ramp, and will be 1m square with a fighting area roughly 85x90cm minus pit and ramp.

    not shown is the extra level for sumo/games, because I haven’t designed it yet...

    We've not followed the 50% rule for a long time even in AWS arenas, the rules were just never 'fixed' to reflect it.

    Remember that too much 'blue' light causes effects in camera sensors and makes everything go violet in the picture.
