Ah, yes, in my attempts to beat the defensive radar I did sacrifice some underside defense for speed. Fixed:

This design beats the sniper, and appears to be able to beat others. http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=863382

Are we going to have testers that just try to overcome our expertly built machines?? Say a couple people that modify the enemies to try and bring out our weak links?
Edited Heavy Duty to use the thrown ball as I originally intended and to get the throwing power up to par.
Can't wait to get off work and start tweaking heavy duty some more :P

Edit: newest Heavy Duty version http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=865627

like someone else mentioned. there just isn't enough build room to make a "end all" design. maybe if the roof was raised/build area was expanded slightly.

even allowing more then 4 wheels would go a long, long ways.

I can nearly guarantee with a unified design and no goal blocking allowed making an unbeatable design shouldn't be possible. Making one that can take down 99% of defenders while stopping 99% of attackers and be declared the ultimate champ sounds like a great challenge though. It's all about multiple uses and utility against multiple opponents IMO.

Lol. The idea is to make really good machines, not just a machine that beats the current victor.

While trying to figure out what it takes to overpower brutes like the "shovel" i came across an interesting new attack move. Not sure its worth anything but kinda funny :P http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=871753

and an absolutely retarded attempt at using it to move the contraption http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=872030

I'm just wondering if those angles could give it some really heft power to push things or if its just too prone to breaking.

I'll test for you guys. You know that I just like to be a spoiler anyhow!

As a gift, check out this design addition for snipers and rainbows defense. I haven't wanted to use it, since it would shut down some of my designs, but since you're building the ultimate design, here you go. The arm is the thing, so you could mount it to another vehicle. It uses two wheels, but effectively eliminates any chance of airborne victory.

BTW, thanks for the inclusion of the Rainbow as a contender.

I just wanted in on this, as I have started my own unbeatable contraption, Powerblock. It combines power, blocking, and ball protection to beat the oppnent. It's still in the development stages so it will probably easily be beaten for now, but I hope to make it unbeatable. If anyone wants to point out any obvious faults, that would be helpful. Thanks.

Glad you could join us! I like the mechanic you have there but I think it might be susceptible to both wedging and sniping. I haven't tested it yet but most locked-down-forward-scoops can be easily wedged and it's bouncing a bit :)

I modified this design and used it against a friend in a match. It seems to work really well. He cant beat it.

I wanted to see if my current design could manage to throw over that monster. I rebuilt it as close to your design as I could in a fairly short amount of time. Talk about an ipecac battle. That air block design is really nice.
Feel free to fix anything i missed on your design. That guy could be one of my biggest challenges :P

Edit: This ones kinda wierd seems to get different results every time i run it. sometimes i clear it about 3rd - 4th throw. sometimes the ball gets stuck between the two forever

That little arm in front is supposed to grab and hold the ball while pushing anyone away trying to get at the ball. Still, you did a good job at recreating it.

El Doo's Yao Ming is defiantly a contender IMHO.

Here is a Powerblock spoiler. It's pretty open to Rainbows and flingers.
