Re: Ant Freeze 4 - Saturday January 28th 2017

Thinking of going to this one if i can make it - may not have the time to rebuild jaguar (at least, to a half decent standard) as school and other hobbies are taking up all of my time at the moment

Re: June 4 2016 - The Oxford Games, Carterton

you could draw teams for a 2v2 and then give the winning people the amount of points you would normally give one person for football.

Re: AWS 49 - Coventry - April 30th 2016

Thanks for a great event Scott, Joey, Tracy, Dave, Gary and everybody else who helped. I enjoyed watching the video as well so thanks for uploading that. Thanks to Alex and Rory for helping to get my robots up and running again. As for my performance, Jaguar did awfully, the chassis took more damage...

Re: Ant Freeze 3 & Signups - Nuneaton, 23rd Jan 2016

Also thanks to Rory for splitting Void in two to force me to stop being lazy and design the new one. This is why i entered Jaguar into the annihilator and gladiator, and it may have done the trick :D (though i am still tempted to be lazy and put the parts back into the tin as nothing was damaged be...

Re: Ant Freeze 3 & Signups - Nuneaton, 23rd Jan 2016

Thanks to john for a great event, and to everyone who helped to fix my robots. Congratulations to all the winners. jaguar and tbsos both went 1-2 in the main event, the latter because of me forgetting to charge the batteries. Jaguar also did well in the annihilator and then got destroyed in the glad...

Agreed, the only antweight events i have managed to get to are ant freeze and aws45, and both were about the limit of where i can get to.

Re: Another New Antweight..

i am now tempted to build an edf robot I approve only if it's for comedic purposes :L i probably would struggle to win more than one fight even if I did enter it in an event :V of course, it is unlikely to happen since i am too lazy to even rebuild jaguar, which I have been meaning to do for about ...

Re: team playzooki or whatever im gonna call it

Thanks Alex for your help, and Peter for the acetate. Jaguar went 0-2 (again). I am facing a dilemma with jaguar as it needs a rebuild with new parts but then that would be a completely new robot and i could keep jaguar running, though i could just use the old parts for spares. TBSOS went 1-2, which...

Re: team playzooki or whatever im gonna call it

That is a good point. Do they sell acetate in any high street shops? I may stop at a service station on the way there.

I probably could, but i probably could have done with rebuilding Jaguar and getting some proper armour for the front of both of them :V

Re: team playzooki or whatever im gonna call it

ok cool so both robots are working and i just need to get the charger bits together. since i dont have any metal or bolts for the front of The Burning Shadows of Silence, would it still be worth it to duct tape some hdpe to the front of it? :P also my dad wants to bring a chess set. i dont know why ...
