Practical Robot

Fully Loaded Dech (League Arena Monstrosity)

Interceptor added 2 years ago

A modified Dech in a Box to take full advantage of the new META. Since MSMG have an insane fire rate and hardly any energy use, it makes it the perfect compliment to the energy hungry plasma. It also has a single nano in the back in case you need to save your platoon mates or that useful flak or rail player keeping your rule over the skies. It is a highly independent bot and can carry League matches very well since its rotor makes it easy to cap towers. As you can see in the video, the only matches i lost on the way to Protonium 5 where all no change matches since i was top half. The matches where also only lost against another dech player that got the top scores.

The last frame I can ever upload of this is now on the crf, the original is broken now with thruster changes so it has been deleted. You will have to modify it yourself however as it was uploaded before phase 2.

Most only have 1, So you sneak attack it with a full plasma volley and then they have no defense. Drones are becoming more and more outdated unfortunately. The amount of noob guns is too damn high.

Roughly how many matches did it take? I'll probably use this bot to finally get a get a nice name colour in chat :)

28, 25 wins, 3 losses at top half. Would have been 25 matches if RC didn't gimp our team with disconnects or Rosefall bombers. Even then we managed to consistently get all towers in all those matches but our team was just feeding them OC.

RIP this bot. Ok, prob not, but that MSMG nerf certainly doesn't help 1 mega gun builds anymore. This is the one thing that I can stand flying through the skies, these designs actually take some thought and engineering (before they were broken) to be made, over spiky mass-less flying bricks. Great work as always, even if this design wasn't the first implementation of the Dech!

Welp. Guess that doesn't help me now that I'm actually trying to climb the ranked arena system without a platoon or a design similar to this...

Honestly, i kind of like the change, the energy now slowly recharges when using a single msmg. Also seems to be slightly more accurate, was able to cap the other teams tower from far away 5 matches in a row.

They nerfed thuster placement. WTF FREEJAM. Luckily, I saw the writing on the wall, and stocked up on Dech frames. Truly one of the more elegant builds out there. Sadly, FJ would rather reward those with sprawling, gross, inefficient designs (gunbeds/spamcopters anyone?) than the state of the art.

Don't see the problem with this unless you mean balances so that cube spam with a tiny bit of paint is just as effective as a well constructed design, cause that's cancer. But there is no reason that a thought out and well engineered jet can't be just as effective as the common tesseract or dech.

IKR?! And now with the impossible progression system, that's all that players will be able to afford. But that doesn't matter, because idling in BA is now the most viable method of grindining for newbs, just sit in spawn and get 85% of the top player's score...

PS You misspelled "monstrosity"

Obviously a very practical bot. However, is the nano really all that useful? Sure you may be able to get a bit of extra OC from injured teammates, but the way I see it it would be far more efficient to swap it for a seventh plasma just to get that extra bit of insane damage and fire rate. The MSMG in front does about as much as you could ask for, but as for the survivability of the bot...meh. It's not all that big and looks like it gets shredded pretty easily, even by SMGs. I guess that's just a trade-off of it's insane firepower, but once again, that nano CPU could be used to reinforce the weak bits, or even just armor up the hull a bit more. Overall, I'd say a 9.5/10 for practicality.

Now, for the creative part. So, you pretty much invented this style of drone with your original 'Dech in a Box'. 5 points right there. Since then, there have been several iterations of it, I'm pretty sure with every weapon except flak and rails. Another 3 points for iterative prototyping and design. However, this build is, eh, not too different from other drones we see nowadays. It's obviously a great robot, but as for the originality it pretty much has the standard loadout (excluding the nano and rotor blade). However, since it boasts a bit more usability with the nano, I'll give you another point. 9/10 for creativity.

All in all, great bot! 9.25/10 total.
Happy Robocrafting :D,
Splat

Tldr, post needs moar boobs. Lol jk, currently nanos are a must for every single bot. Idgaf about the extra score, in solo league if you get paired with bronzies you need to babysit them so they are useful and not dead weight. Also vastly helpful in platoons.

My recommendation is to become HIGHLY efficient at tower capping if you go solo league. If you don't cap tower's by yourself @ OC 1 in under 5 seconds, the bronzies will weigh you down heavily.

Thank you. Actually the problem is not my score (I get always one of top team). The problem is that my team make me loose often battles because of their inefficient bots or their akward playstyle. I am good a RC, but not so good to carry all my team to victory.

To be honest I don't like this kind of bots just because they lack creativity, but I know how good this bot is and you did a very good job with coloring division ranks. Got myself Plat 5 with something similar!

Good job, I love the presentation. As previous commenters have said that the dech is not so orginal any more I think you present it amazing well and the effort you put surpasses the "lack of orginality". After all a good bot design is a base from which the player can adapt to his play style.

I must show you the version I made with a blink module replacing the back set of rudders, it has 1MSMG and 3 plasma (waiting for the day they reduce module cpu cost). Its extremely fun if abit fragile.

edit: aaaaand just noticed todays hotfix which nerfs this kind of build futher. . .YAY :S pfffft.

You adapted well these designs to the color of the league badges, it deserves a higher rating here, and your thumbnail, well realised, made me improve the creative rating too, but you surely know these designs are overused and not so "ceative" anymore ^^

Harmony : 3/3
Complexity : 3/3
Originality : 2/3
Bonus for best looking bots : 0.5/1

I think it's fair enough ^^
