Practical Robot

Lightning [D]

Plasma Bomber added 2 years ago

First of all, special thanks to Juvar23 for making The Thundercloud. As this build is heavily based off of said robot. I would like to present to you, Lightning!

(One with the clouds :D)

Lightning has a hollow shell that allows armour to be shaved whilst retaining all functional cubes, this allows it to last as long as possible while under attack

All of the parts in the build are triforced and made to be as light as possible, so that it is very hard to shoot down and makes it really good at being mobile.

Any criticism is much appreciated, cheers! ^^

EDIT: This bot is now up on the CRF!

Very true. :P

I expect a new type of bot to return though, those new inward curves have a rediculously low mass. In fact, It's probably possible to make this one work again, all I need is more thrust, and to I also need to use inward curves instead of prisms.

Sorry, but I wont be making a tutorial for this, the reason is because I've already made one for a cloud, it's name is Zetter.

Hopefully that will suffice, if not look around. :P

oh, lol, i didn't see it before, anyway, the zetter is much better than this one.

Good built, as other saying these builds are getting to be a common sight and will probably turn meta.

Evolution of Robocraft. Only wish for more curve appeal, but for a fact this bot is effective in combat :D

1. they are awesome to look at
2. the vital movement parts aren't visible, so they can't be shot off by the OP-no distance penalty-SMG's
3. they look awesome
4. they fly PERFECTLY (if built right)
5. they look really awesome
6. it's fun (and challenging) to build - cramming as much functional components as possible on a tiny space
7. did i mention they look AWESOME?!

All the balance changes have lead to this, these can tank just as much as any electroplate build, maybe even more.

Yeah i'm pretty sure it was my fault. I made one a while ago based off STW's stardust and katastronik's valkyrie (both very good IR players) then juvar started making them. lol
