Arbiter Prime (R.I.P. Megabots)

SMG Megabot added 1 year ago

For once, not a long description.
I'm out guys, I really mean it this time. Unless some magical update comes and changes the shape of Robocraft backwards, I just don't see any reason to keep playing. I will make one last submission after this, but this seems more appropriate with the megabots newly being announced to be soon eliminated.

I don't even know what FJ is doing now, so I'm just gonna give a brief word about this design.

Only store bought mega frame that I have purchased to date. The original design was the "Venator", by a now forgotten author, supposedly taking their inspiration from the Pacific Rim movie. I gotta give it to the original creator, they did a damn fine job with the original frame of the design. However, this is not a mere resubmission. I have completely reworked the head design, added custom paint, changed the gun count from 7 to 9, added heavy rod forcing throughout the design to maximize the gun life, and made a few painstakingly small design changes, and give it a cool, fancy colored title. But I would now consider this my design, built from the foundation of another person's magnificent work. If this were to be considered stealing another person's work, then I would gladly (well, not really, but I still would) remove this design and allow the original author to take my place.

Ok, I lied, it was a wall of text. God, it's like I'm cursed with these things... Also I'll prob throw on a few more pics soon.

Yeah, goes a little against what I normally do in terms of a paint job with one base color, and then a bunch of stripy accents. However, I kept it like this so as to keep the original paintjob intact. Not like I can really change it though at this point, with bots getting removed in a few days...

Also, why no practical rating? Just curious.

My tired eyes don't like counting guns nor reading wall of text. Have a practical rating too.

Maybe some of us interpret "long" as anything under a page XD.

I jest though, probably was a bit too long for a build like this, but I can't resist, and I guess you all are now a victim of my lies >;)

Nice, but could you also put a pic of the original, I'm interested on how much you changed it.
And RIP megas :(

If I can find an original copy somewhere, I'll try. I know there is a pic on the steam screenshots, but I have no idea if it is the original.
Enjoy: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=651120794
(The one I originally found was like this, except the red body was grey, the black accents were orange, and the visor was the same blue. No glass came with original design.)

Oh yeah, and there were wings on the original instead of those... gas tank things. But I did mod the wings a bit too.

Very nice job of what you did with the color scheme and upgrades. Very nice frame to begin with and yea its a shame that no more tiers or robot rank. Games will be based on cpu of bot so that all new players will have access to all weapons (even the new modules) and therefore will be on teams with experienced players. This is taking away from the true intent of the game which is gain experience and grind to unlock and buy. I guess overtiering no longer works too as there is only one rank of weapons and gear now i believe?

Overtiering was kinda dead for a long time lol. I mean, I guess you could consider mega weapons overtiering, but I kinda found them balanced up until this point due to their extensive CPU requirements. And off topic, I just realized that Freejam is gonna have to replace half their store page images with the removal of megas lol. I still don't know how this game has a positive rating with so many angry recent reviews.

ikr, and i overtiered with one proto in the 12k range lol, fun times but even that is coming to an end. I guess more original builds instead of generic mega frame crf spam will have to go in place of that now

Whoops lol, completely missed this comment, not sure if you would care about this anymore, but here goes.
About the wings, yes, I get that they look quite fragile, because quite frankly, they are. But on a closer look, they really only serve to cover up and disguise the rod-forcing holding the guns in place. I actually found these guns to last the longest, as the main body towering over other designs (even hovers) gave the guns an angle over the armor that other bots (outside of rails) really could not take out.
Going through and remembering that just made me miss megas that much more, *sighs*...
