Thread: Robot SMASH!! III: Lock3d and Load3d

  1. #1
    In the words of Joey McConnell, upon the opening of Recharged


    Oh yes.
    As we enter the third series of this major tournament, you will witness the rise of another RS!! Champion, and the fall of many other machines

    Ladies and Gentlemen, please applaud the return of ROBOT SMASH!! , coming to you live from channel LIAMISDABEST, we begin the search for a new musical megastar! If you want to see that rubbish turn over because American Idol is on ITV2, but here on LIAMISDABEST we are looking for a robot so mean it€™ll send Gok Wan running home to mamma!

    In the first series 64 brave (or stupid) robots rose to the challenge and battled it out in a brutal single elimination tournament. 8 finalists emerged, and they went to war again, but the quarter-finals were tough on the robots and only four were left. Then the semi-finals arrived, and the excellent ISDSFA and Supreme Glory Omega bit the dust, but then in the final Wedge Devolution flipped Nidhogg against the wall to win the very first Robot SMASH!! .
    Then Wedge Devolution returned in Robot SMASH!! Series 2: Recharged, and another 95 machines wanted his blood. They did battle across 16 gory heats, with the survivors battling it out in the semi-finals to be narrowed down to 4 almighty robots. The champion made it through along with unseeded veteran Back to Rock III, newcomer PsycloniZer and previous runner-up Nidhogg. They did battle in two bloodthirsty eliminators, with Nidhogg crumpling after a flurry of spinning attacks from PsycloniZer and BTRIII ending up on the camera tracks courtesy of Wedge Devolution, but then in the final it was all over for Wedge and a new champion arose, Andys flipper killing machine PsycloniZer!
    And now the epic story continues. Can PsycloniZer retain the title, or will another new robot rise to victory?

    The seedings will be announced after the entries are in, but these will be the seedings if all the following robots are entered:
    01. PsycloniZer (NEWCOMER)

    The Arena

    The first SMASH!! Took place in a slightly modified version of the RW arena, but the second created the coliseum. Now we have an entirely new arena, the ROBOTAGON! This is a fairly small 12 metre x 12 metre octagon with two starting squares, a red in the top left corner and a blue in the bottom right corner. Each square is big enough for two robots. In the bottom left corner there is a pit, big enough for any robot. The release button is on the top wall. In the top right corner there is a hazard coloured semi-circle where a house robot will patrol. Surrounding the perimeter of the arena there is a strip of tungsten static spikes, and in the bottom side there is flame pit for all those comedy robots covered in fur... The walls are 50mm hardox and just 45cm high; the floor is stainless steel for plenty of magnetism.

    Reservation Policy

    You can reserve a place in the competition, but it will be held only for 1 week. If anyone gets their stats in before you then it€™s whoever gets their stats in first gets the spot. Every time that the entry list is posted I will write next to your name how much time is left of your reservation.


    Weight Limits:
    100kg for wheeled robots
    110kg for shuffling and tracked robots
    200kg for true walkers

    Flying robots are banned
    Passive weaponry is allowed
    Interchangeable weaponry is allowed, no limit on the amount of setups
    Cluster bots are allowed, but no more than 5 parts, if 50% of the robot is immobilised then the whole bot is eliminated, each part must make up an equal percentage of the overall weight
    No smokescreens


    You can win by:
    Critically impair opponent€™s motion (eg take out 50% of the drive)
    Completely immobilise opponent€™s drive

    You cannot pin an opponent for more than 30 seconds, the same goes for holding on with a weapon. Note however that this rule no longer applies to stacking.

    Each fight lasts 3 minutes maximum. If two or more robots are running at the end the fight will be judged on damage, aggression, control and dominance. Each is marked out of ten, and times on order of importance: Damage x 4, Aggression x 3, Control x 2, Dominance x 1
    This is the same system used with success last season


    If I mess up and do anything impossible, please don€™t blow up, just point it out calmly and if it is indeed a valid point(s) then I will be more than happy to rewrite.

    Tournament Structure

    Depends on how many entries I get. The heats will be like those from RW6/RW7, but there will be 12 or 16 depending on how many entries I get.

    House Robots

    Yes, I know I said I would never do them in RS!! , but I just can€™t resist. One will appear in each fight alongside the refbot. Also I am using the Robot Wars House Robots. Also, if you have a house robot that you would like to feature in this tournament I will gladly allow it to feature among these, all you need is a brief description, though if you have stats that is fine. This is entirely OPTIONAL, and unless you want to don€™t go to the expense of making them specially. There is however a 500kg weight limit.
    These are the house robots I have created specially:

    This applies mostly to vapours. I know a lot of realies, but not every single one that ever existed so I if don€™t know much about a realie I will tell you, a video will usually suffice, but as long as you can give a description you should be OK. You only have to post a video or a description if I require one for one or more realies, I will let you know.

    You can set your stats out in any format, but they must include the following (please note one category- such as power- may contain both drive motor and batteries/voltage):
    Robot Name: What your robot is called
    Shape: What shape your robot is
    Weight: See weight limits
    Dimensions: Preferably in CM, l x w x h unless stated otherwise
    Motivation: Wheels/Tracks/Legs etc.
    Armour: What your robot is armoured with
    Weaponry: What weapons (if any) your robot has
    Speed: What speeds can it reach or what speed is its average?
    Ground Clearance: Remember if it is 0 all round you won€™t move, though you can make it 0 with skirts, though if you have skirts please state the clearance behind them
    Turning Circle: Most types are 0, unless you have car steering
    Colour: What colour(s) you robot is
    Srimech: What your robot has to right itself (if it can) or is it invertible?
    Please note that the following three are OPTIONAL:
    Strengths: Pros of your design
    Weaknesses: Cons of your design
    Notes: Anything else?


    I need either 12 or 16 people to enter 8 robots each (see Tournament Structure). They can be vapours or realies, you decide, but you must have at least 1 realie. Realies cannot be from before series 5 of Robot Wars and Season 3.0 of Battlebots. I have made this decision because in the past people (COUGH JOEYALEX COUGH) have entered very old realies.
    (COUGH INFUSION FAMILY COUGH) This goes for realies and vapours, you cannot enter two or more robots the same, whether they are painted different colours and/or have very slight changes or not, I will judge whether two or more very similar entries are allowed.
    Regarding vapours I am willing to look in other threads for stats as long as you tell me where they are and all stats are in one thread, otherwise please post them here or post a link to where I can find them. People with their stats on ZED only need to give me a list of names; I know where your stats are.
    Remember to specify the name of house robots if you have any and are willing to lend them.

    Anything I€™ve missed or any questions you have feel free to ask.

    Also, I€™ve done a lot of coughing through this lengthy opening thread, does anyone have a soother?

    So, what are you silly, foolish people waiting for?

    Get entering!!!

    Please note that this may not start for a while, so I will allow robots to be swapped with their updated versions right up until the time the first battle is written, but you can only change robots completely before the draw is done.


  2. #2
    At this rate I might get a realie age limit rule named after me, that would be the coolest thing in the history of cool things

    As for coughing, Ive done a lot of it as well, might be a fanfic bug going round...oh, wait, entries? Sure, I can give you entries :P

    Nidhogg Evo (3)
    Gabriel III (1
    Eye Of Ran
    No Consequences
    (potentially a new vapour, but if no new vapour has been given by the time of the draw then substitute Quaestor III)
    And the obligitory legal realie: Gemini (series 5)

  3. #3
    I enter - and I pick robots

    Knyfe (23)[ 6 ad=186]
    Heyght II[ 2 ad=302]
    Inferno[ 4 ad=394]
    The Rock[ 5 ad=185]
    Nitro-Gene 5.0[ 7 ad=177]
    MeCannibal 3.0[ 5 ad=175]
    WORCK-ER[ 2 ad=182]
    Storm II (Realie)

    The last tourny was a great read, but it was bad for my bots, with only 1 heat final, 3 Round 2s, and 4 plummeting out in their first Round. I intend to pull back and take the crown of RS!!CHAMP!!!! (Like heck )

    Reserve me a spot with these potential entries:

    Wedginator Devilution / Wedgin8or
    Super Gore Revo
    Seung Mina V
    Tira IV
    Killobite Hex
    Macduff the 3rd / 4th
