Limited to 12 teams! You may enter as many bots as you like in either weight class, but due to space constraints we are limited to 12 teams for this event.
Our bar events have rowdy spectators and it's a wildly good time. To keep fights running as continuously as possible without the pressure of time constraints, we run an "ante up" system. Upon registration (free), each bot is given 3 chips. Builders can challenge each other and bet at least 1 chip on the fight; winner takes the pot at the end of the fight. You can bet as many chips as you want on your own match, (and only your own matches). Once you're out of chips, your bot is out! Antweights and Beetleweights have different color chips. At the end of the night, the bot with the most chips per weightclass takes first in their weightclass, second most chips takes second, etc. Trophies will be awarded. In the event of a tie, the crowd will determine placement with a vote determined by gladiatorial cheering.
Battle it out to the cheers of spectators at Vegas' best nerd bar, Millennium Fandom! Combat Robots replace average band for entertainment and teams get a couple drinks and a food order on the house to participate in this bot brawl. There is no bracket and results are not sent to BotRank, so it's the perfect time to test out a new configuration or build and go hard!
All participating builders should join the VCR Discord or Facebook group to challenge each other to the first round of fights. After the first round of fights, bots that are ready to fight can challenge each other and make their bets. If you want to sit out a round for repairs, that's fine! Every bot should get at least 2 fights, as long as they are fight-ready. If no other bots are ready when you are looking for a fight, event organizers may furnish an opponent for you. Event is 21+! Weightclasses are not capped, but due to space constraints, we do have a strict limit of 12 teams. Each team will get 2 drink tickets and a food item voucher for the fabulous drinks and snacks at Millenium Fandom Bar!
VCR uses the SPARC Ruleset along with the following amendments for its competitions:
- No use of fire or flame weapons
- Magnets may be used for additional downforce on the steel floor but not for any other reason
- In the case of both robots being stuck together and unable to separate, there will be 1 separation per match
For any questions on the rules, please email email@example.com or post a question on Vegas Combat Robotics Facebook page.
