Re: Melees

Just to be clear to Dan, we're not running your upcoming AWS any differently. You just concentrate on the classic format and getting everything in time alright. :-)

Re: Melees

You're absolutely right Peter. If I feel it's getting dull, that's my hang up.

Re: Melees

I think this is why I'm quite happy to suggest trying new things because none of the things Scott has brought up about the feather champs bother me. And that's not a gripe at him, I think he is right in almost all the ways he mentioned. But if that was me at that tournament, none of that would bothe...

Re: Melees

That was my initial point Dave. Trying something different for an AWS format and if its poorly received or people prefer the standard, then we go back to that instead. The title AWS hangs above events like an overly-serious weight, and Dave isn't the only one who's said "I'll run an event but I don'...

Re: Melees

Simply having more events doesn't work for us. We sometimes struggle to make 3 a year, let alone more. Scott, I understand you said have the events the same frequency (so still three a year) and to alternate between the types, but getting to an event costs us hundreds of pounds and I'd be less enthu...

I want to see this so much. Peter's driving has improved over the years but this will be something else.

Re: 2i) Clusterbots

Its interesting. "Can detach from each other, but chose not to for the whole fight." I guess that falls into tactics rather than rules. Similar to keeping one half of a cluster out of the way to bring in only if the other half fails to win. What's your thinking, Peter? I'm guessing some sort of teth...

Re: 2i) Clusterbots

I always liked the idea that clusterbots had to start as one robot and 'become' their separate parts upon activate, a la Robot Wars. But that proved to be problematic with antweights as people very quickly found ways around it that made it rather pointless to have as a rule IE just sitting the two f...

Re: 2i) Clusterbots

That's an interesting question! 3 ideas spring to mind. 1) classic cluster with separate units 2) separate units joined together by some kind of tether 3) one unit, say 4WD, where the front wheels are independent of the back (with their own receiver, speedo, battery etc.) In my mind, only the first ...

Re: Another New Antweight..

There's just something about it that other spinners don't have. I think its a stability thing (strangely). I think its the only spinner I'm scared of.
