Instead of pushing, try grabbing at least 2 of 3 falling Goal Balls -
- and drop them in your goal area.
Build only on your side.
No more than 60 total pieces.
No overly simple designs allowed. If your design has no reasonable chance of winning the next battle, it is illegal and will not be counted. - See Note Below in RED
No other rules!
Now that this thread is up and rolling, I need to add a rule to address a common problem that tends to pop up on these battle threads. People who post overly simple designs in mature battle threads (like a single stick) wreck the contest and waste everyone's time. All machines have a weakness. Making a dumb, simple design that exploits a weakness, but has no chance whatsoever of winning the next battle accomplishes nothing. The goal should be to continually develop stronger and better machines that are both offensive and defensive and that attempt to guard against their inherent weaknesses as they evolve.
Otherwise, what is the point????
