Ladies and Gentleman,

This thread is our official roll-call. If you are working on a mech, please post to this thread, telling us: your mech's name, status of how far along you are building, and a link to any further information if you have it (like your mech's thread or website). Please, only post here if you have a mech in progress, thanks!

ALSO: please let us know if you'll be needing a scoring system, or scoring system parts (all 2010 equipment, or 2009 transponders, are still good. Cases would be new competitors, or bipeds needing half-plates, or people wanting to switch to frontal half-plates). We're trying to get a grasp on how many panels and transponders will be needed this year. Thanks!

ROLL CALL: (this will be updated as new mechs are started/found):

Just to note, we're holding off on adding people to the roster until proof of progress is posted. Generally speaking we're looking for about 70% completion on a project before we consider you active on the roster (elaughlin's mech is a good example of solid progress). This is so that we can maintain an accurate count, and is by no means meant to offend. We've just had a good number of people who are 'building a mech' but never end up showing or even posting proof of progress.

With that said, anybody is more than welcome to purchase scoring gear regardless of their completion.

Competitors- if you are participating in the 2v2 League, please post here once you have picked your teammate along with your team name. We want to keep an active roster of who is participating in which competitions.

I will update the original posting with the listing of teams. Thanks!

Just a little bump. I've added a few more people to the official roster on the front page.

Also note: anyone who is in the 1vs1 list, but not in the 2vs2 list, is probably looking for a partner for 2vs2! (which is about half the crowd)

If we only get one entry (you) this year I'm likely going to put Hardcore league on hiatus, fyi. IMO- I'd build something for airsoft league if you intend to participate.

Not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but I'd just as soon not even call it an active league if we only have one person registered.

Gentlemen, Registration for Robogames is now open. We have a little less than 4 months until competition, I need updates on who will be attending if you have not already answered. I'll be sending out an email to our mailing list to get final answers.

Updated scoring transponders/target panels (Optional to those who already own a set) will be made available in the near future.

I plan on being there this year.

Mech: Ordog-6
Type: PLM Biped
Class: Airsoft League
Progress: 98% mechanical. 0% software. 50% electronics
I'll need 2 1/2 scoring panels for the front and 1 full size for the rear. I'll also need 2 1/2 panels for the sides. I can use the old transponder but I would like to move to the new one when it becomes available.

When registering for Mech Warfare on robogames.net what is the difference between Mech Warfare LW and MW? I am signed up for the LW since I saw most of the competitors that I have talked to are sign up for that one. So is MW the Hardcore Class?

Most of the stuff on the Robogames registration hasn't been updated since Year 1. Just use LW, that is the airsoft class.

I notice that in the Robogames registration there are robots entered into Mech Wars that do not seem to be on the list of competitors at the top of this thread, such as DU 116 RP. Is this because you didn't update the list, or that you don't know about the robots, or the registration is outdated? Just curious.

It's very interesting to see the number of competitors grow.

DresnerRobotics
02-18-2011, 02:52 PM
I just haven't 'sync'd' the two lists at this point. We had a few teams show up last minute last year that we had no idea about; they simply didn't ever participate in the forums.
