    It is here, the RaceDepartment Robot Wars Tournament. You don't need to know anything about Robot Wars to compete in this tournament, just the willingness to compete.

    As you may have found out by now, my avatar is from this TV show. I have been editing on the Robot Wars Wiki for some time now. Here, we hold fantasy tournaments, where we pit robots against each other and try to decide who would win in a battle between them.

    Here is how it works. I will post some names of robots in 4 pools: Good, Decent, Okay and Bad. You may choose one robot from each to start with. As I said, you don't need to worry about what they look like, I will just post a small description of their weapons.
    I have set up a page on the Robot Wars Wiki for the users to vote on this tournament, and will post a link when we first start voting. Whether it will be heats or just a straight knockout is to be decided when all users have chosen their robots. I will enter, but will choose last, as I know all about the robots.

    All you need to do is pick 1 robot out from each section: 1 Good robot, 1 Decent, 1 Okay and 1 Bad. Just pick them on the names and weapons as to how you like.
     
  6. I will after recording is done

    Nice. :thumbsup:
    You can start selecting now.

    I won't post pictures of the robots until everyone has selected in case people decide to change.

    Yes, so other people don't choose your robots.

    I don't get it completely. Will it be played on an external site? Then we should move this thread to off-topic.

    I will be played on an external site. I get what you're saying. The annoying thing I have realised now is that it will be hard for users to actually do anything after choosing their robots.
     
  14. I'll pass this one.

    Sadly yes. :cry: I realised this after I posted it. Off-Topic Chat wold be a good place to put it if you want to move it.
     
  17. Any news on this game?
