Re: AWS'60 Results Analysis

It's always interesting to see breakdowns like this. Though just to add I don't think we actually have any fully fledged meltybrains competing, I thought they were all just Sit and Spins.

Re: Devo 7e

Looks like the Deviation Uploader-0.9.0 on this page is what you want: https://www.deviationtx.com/downloads-new/category/161-dfu-usb-tool Seems to be an updated tool for flashing transmitters. Looks like this is the likely death of the guide though, my own Devo 7e died long ago and I'm not buying o...

Re: Antweight Rules Proposal

I think maybe we should codify the rule which Dave informally described at the beginning of AWS60, "A cluster bot must demonstrate some controlled movement of at least two of its parts during each battle, or be disqualified". So if part of a cluster was damaged in the first fight, it needs to be re...

With 4k, I think my unease came from the use of the term "overturn the fight result", maybe it would sound better if the end of that rule read "then the judges will decide the winner of the fight."
I see what you mean with that bit, definitely a tweak needed.

Re: Antweight Rules Proposal

2) while I like the idea of rule 4k, I think that idea would be better implemented by adjusting 4j to include robots that are immobilised as well as ones in the pit - "4j) If opposing robots have left the arena or been immobilised simultaneously etc......"

Re: Antweight Rules Proposal

In rule 4h), the "leaving arena without contact" rule, should it be written that a maximum of two restarts per robot will be allowed? As far as I know, we've applied this consistently in recent tournaments. I've never seen a case where the same robot left the arena a third time without contact thou...

However it has become somewhat of a slog and weighed down by various things, legacy and semantics. What I have done is taken a run at a more complete rewrite on the ruleset. The aims of this...
