Creative Robot

Hoplite

Plasma Hover added 2 years ago

Named after an ancient Greek shielded infantry unit, this bot lives up to its name using an asymmetrical design to have a powerful shield on one side, and powerful weapons on the other.

See the video below for a montage and a build tutorial :D \/\/

When there isn't enough highly rated bots on the site it just puts up old bots selected by nixell i think, since they are always the same.

I do not understand why everyone put 10 for creativity, it's just a set of modules, even the colors are not coordinated.

This was back when cubes are color coded plus the rcg community back then was more likely to put 10 on peoples bots.

Why is it flying in the picture if it's a hover D:

It kind of looks like it's hovering, I don't have it in the sky or anything, usually the thumbnail is really quite small so details like, how close to the ground is it, would be overlooked as what I am trying to do is just show the bot's looks and style rather than anything else.

I really like the the idea and the look. This thing is great if you only fight smg. I'd have to side with shafty that your screwed against any descent plasma. Easiest fix, platoon with 3 medics.

Do you think a medic version would do well?

Instead of hiding behind whatever there is to hide you use your shields :D Great idea! THIS is a true plasma only bot :D Good job!

Built, and disappointing to see it cannot do anything with all the bombers. Still a good robot in TDM.

Yeah, there is a problem with bombers as the shields arn't facing upwards, bombers are being nerfed so they won't be quite as bad as they are now. TDM was my first choice for the bot, except when I'm recoding a TDM my frames drop significantly so I wasn't able to show the bot in that context. Thanks for building :)

Oh how tempting to build! its just that bomber problem D:

My only concern is that bombers will find you really easy to destroy from above, sadly. Is it like that?

:3 It works very well if you're good at keeping your shields faced towards the bomber, and hitting them with plasma. ...IMO. Although it does feel like the top front shields snap off quite easily from air. Or maybe it is actually taking the all of the damage, and breaking that way.

You have clearly learned to pilot this extremely well from the video. Great tactic of a swing and shoot then turn the shields to face the enemy. Great concept. Almost begging for the dev team to create moving parts like hinges!

...That... is amazing. Like an actual soldier with a sword and shield. This might actually be the best thing I've ever seen in the game :3

Making artificial cover by turning XD

I was wondering how long it would be before someone came along with a viable bot for this concept. Been day dreaming about it for months but never put the time in. Great implimentation but of course room for improvement.

I really think when EP are made to spawn charged again then this would be very viable.
