Boy this thread makes me wish we could save bots rather than levels. Remakings some of these complicated designs for every new challenge takes away from tweaking time :sigh:

It doesn't really take much height to beat a Sniper - the height of the contraption itself (if it uses the full height of the work area) should about suffice, which makes Yao Ming massive overkill.

What I meant is not so much the height but the speed of the arm and the angles.

I'm horrible at building snipers
(if you want funny proof watch this: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=902736)
but this will give you an idea of my concern.

Yea, that sniper does beat it but with only a minor tweak it is fixed.

A minor tweak is a minor tweak usually means that a minor tweak by the other bot will score a win again i.e. me and weasel's tweak battle on the other soccer thread. I'm sure a talented sniper builder could think of a way over. That being said While playing around with it i noticed if tweaked right it actually becomes offensive and throws the ball back at the sniper which leads me to believe it could be tweaked to completely shut down the sniper route. Lets hope nobody can build tooo much better of a sniper though.

The orignial soccer arena had a rule of only 4 wheels max and a rule of unified design. (your whole contraption has to be linked in 1 peice) So add some chain links to some things! ;)

1) This isn't that kind of thread. Read the first post.
2) The design you beat is an invalid soccer design.
3) You don't hold "titles" for anything. There are no titles.

This thread is about building the ultimate soccer machine that can beat all opponents. Most of us are in here cause the other soccer thread is all but dead and burned and any design in there has been beaten by someone in less than 4 min with a shovel. The only way to hold any "title" in my opinion is to build a machine that can't be beat ever and no thats not a shovel. ;) Theres also the position in here of trying to beat our attempts at an "unbeatable" machine (see: contenders). That might be more suited to you funwise, you know trying to beat all our designs so we know our weaknesses.

Oh and welcome to Soccer Victor

I'd say Heavy Duty http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=865627

and Yao Ming http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1036193

The reason I and some othere people get frustrated with you seniorxj, is that you seem pretty arrogant by your continued braggart posts. I've beaten your designs on every level, several times. But then someone else then beats me. You have some good designs, but you attitude guarantees that people will give you a hard time. If want everyone to think your a bratty 12 year-old, keep going like you are, otherwise be proud when you win, but quit being a jerk.

I dont know how to explain it any other way that its just havin fun and not what u think it is. I say if ur takin it like that then ur WAY to serious about this and need to relax!!!!!!!!! So why dont we ALL just sit back with a coke and a smile and keep playing.
