CM-1 Dark Angel

Tesla Hover added 3 years ago

My first T10 build, and I thought a combat medic would be fun given the importance of Megabots in some T10 battles, and I love hovers. With eight Teslas, I'm hoping this will prove to have a fair amount of damage in close quarters and be able to defend allies while healing. I think this bot feels great to handle, it turns well, has pretty good speed, and honestly might be cashed in at some point for something more aggressive, but for now this is the starting point.

Because of the huge CPU requirement for the bot, there is a lot of empty space in the central chasis, but every main surface has some level of either armor and/or EP coverage, and the pilot seat is fully surrounded.

The pics currently use T6 blocks, but the final will be T10 as soon as I can purchase all the needed blocks.

The bot takes some influence from a combination of ROSEFALL's Aegis and Pegasus builds.

Not easily, but yes. You have to be willing to ride your height adjustment a lot to be able to get it to hit.

It's true that the design overall is very similar to the Pegasus, but I've been finding that the shape of EP rather limits what kind of designs are possible at any given tier. The archetype of using T7 EP, for example, to form the front of a bot is extremely widely spread as to be nearly expected. I can say, having seen the Pegasus tutorial that my chasis probably isn't as elegant and is very different underneath the shielding, but the hover placement on this bot is (in general) higher up leading to greater stability. The Pegasus also lacks turning thrusters and reverse thrusters so you'd get more maneuverability out of this build (which is needed to use Teslas effectively anyways).

I definitely wish that I did a better job of coming up with unique designs that looked good. Hopefully ROSEFALL isn't too offended by the reality that his bots happen to both look good and work well leading others to tweak with them. I've definitely built my fair share of bots (like this one) that were heavily influenced by his work visually, and their functional aspects have helped me learn better ways of making a bot to have stable and smooth movement.

Looks a lot like you put some teslas on R0SEFALLs Pegasus
