Biography

Hi! Welcome.

20/4/18: lol they broke flying Umbra variants and most of my hybrid hover rotor bots, or at least the newest ones which utilise smaller hoverblades, which were my favourite and once most effective TDM bots, allowing me to nab many kills with zero deaths of my own. They can no longer fly without flipping over constantly, and once flipped over, refuses to auto-flip to its upright position.

This seems to occur with bots containing hybrid mobility with the combination of any rotors and SMALL hovers. Issue is not present for a combination of rotors and large hover blades.

I no longer properly play actively, but I'm still hiding in the shadows and do return once in a while.
Had a couple of really good rounds on 18/5/18 though.

I still have plenty of designs to share, but... knowing myself I'd be very slow in revealing them. I think that's quite evident with my upload intervals and how long I hold my previous designs prior sharing them here. :)

Answers to some questions if people are interested (i.e. no one):

Why I share bots once in a blue moon:
Because self-proclaimed high quality posts. I only share the designs that work well for me and have been so for extended periods of time. And also because I take ages to come up with inspiration for thumbnails apparently.

Why I don't (or rather no longer) use a standardised thumbnail):
I put a lot of thought into the custom thumbnails and attempt to make them unique and fit the bot design so that the thumbnail reflects the nature of the bot.

Description last updated: 22/5/18
Date of most recent bot shared: 18/3/18

Never deleting this; took far too much effort to make it go to waste.

Your bots are very nice.
You've adapted the style of another retired builder and I like it.

Heh, thank you.
This is a new era of Grigerbest's style on this site, and it starts with me.

I feel you dude....
Although i have not lost a robot, some of my robots were manipulated by a bug. A new megabot that i was working on got replaced by one of my bombers.
It was pretty sad because it happened right before i ran put of free premium. I managed to build back half of it, but i was not fast enough...

I was also VERY laggy and VERY unlucky in robotcraft as well, but that was before FSC. I used to get static 10 fps, nut i managed to resolve that issue by changing a lot of stuff in my computer

I was also stuck in B2 for a long time (from when rankings came out until FSC) because of a ranking bug which didnt allow me to rank up. It was very demoralizing as my friends, who i have won the same games with, ranked up to silver and G3. (Trust me, i was always on the top of the leader board when we won)

I got these problems fixed, and i hope you get yours fixed as well :)

P.S try to get on 4 man voice chat platoons for maximum winning streaks

I very specifically avoided 4 man voice chat platoons man.
I'm at P-1. Done mostly solo.
Why are platoons even allowed in LA?

I might follow your advice on 4 man platoons.. ...Might. It's a known formula that brings great results. No idea who I could platoon with though. Currently, there is what two people I trust to enter LA with me.
