Too bad that it's too late to turn in an entry, I have an really effective vehicle seems to defeat all of the current bots.
When is the next contest anyhow?

Well, I didn't test other bots against themselves, but if I had to put bets, it would be the poking tank thing-a-ma-bob

That will be revieled on the 10th (that is, if I'm done making the movie of the turnament, and I already almost am).

Can't wait for the next one, will the arenas be significantly different?
And to ducky, I highly recommend making your machine wedge-proof in some way

Yes. I am still thinking about how I should make them though. Any ideas?

Not really. Also, what happens if there is a draw, and restarting only results in another draw? I haven't had it happen, but it would be nice to know.

Idk. I might switch the opponants with different ones, or I might totally change the whole fighting stage.

Both of the weapon are over half a meter. make sure your weapons are half a meter or smaller (measure them by using the ruler under the building zone).

Is it okay to have objects pieces of the bot that pivot outwards to help fit within the box?

Oh yeah, I remember that now, also I have this bar that pops you to help block bots passing over it, is it considered a weapon, and thus, must stay under .5 meters?

If it is meant to attack other bots, then it is a weapon and can only be 0.5 meters long. If its just a bar to help keep you upright, then length doesn't matter (as long as it fits in the building zone).

whoops, there was a typo, It doesn't keep me upright, but I'm not sure if it attacks bots. It's basically a pole sticking out the top to help prevent enemy bots from going over-top my bot.

I'm gonna upload it to show you what I'm talking about.
This version isn't as effective against the current bots since the next tournament has the new overlap weight rules.
