Yep. Bad RNG is how any bot loses. The whole reason that both TTGL and Homer won in the first place was good RNG, as they were the first two robots randomly picked. Speaking of RNG, I was thinking of adding the ability to allow others to choose who they want to win, which could potentially increase their chances of good RNG for their fight. Maybe not for the current four-way battles, but for the 1 v 1 battles afterwards. If that's an idea you guys would like, let me know.

BTW, there's an update tonight, lads. The Group Two Battles are about to begin!

Poll leading up to every fight, RNG weighted by poll results (so 6 for robot A, 4 for robot B would mean a 60% chance of A winning). That might work?

This is partly why I've asked before using the feature. If any other people raise any criticisms with the idea, I'll drop it and stick to the current format.

Stupid fanwanking a.k.a. cheering for the face which leads to shock and awe when the heel pulls out a win.

Sounds like fun to me.

I like poll weighted rng.

I used it a little in my own thread by giving the poll winner the field advantage, obviously in that thread there was no RNG but I think a poll weight would be a good feature.

LADIES AND GENTS! The Group One battle has come and gone, with the fan favourites Golden Homer and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann going through!
Now though, folks. It's time for the long-awaited Group Two battle!

Let's take a look at our contestants, shall we?

Garf has entered Persona 4 Arena's big bad baddie, Shadow Labrys (You chose worst girl, Garf. For shame)! She's manipulative, cruel, violent and all other nasty things too! Wait a moment, I just remembered something!
Garf wrote:shadow labrys isn't even a robot
Will this put Labrys at a disadvantage?

Let's move from the worst girl to a girl willing to clean with a smile! Hyperteck has entered Hetty the Hoover! This robot has plastic armour, which was never boded well in Robot Wars, but will she be able to clean up the competition?

Now, from cute to brute, we go to a futuristic robot! Mewthree has entered Destructor! Previously an Ultimate Robot Fighting League champion, will Destructor's experience against such opponents as The Gender Bender destroy the competition?

Finally, we go to a robot that all helper robots look up to. ミドリ has entered the mighty condiment crusader, The Heinz Automato57! With it's squirty ketchup weapons and defence, will the Automato57 show the world that no Lidl compromise is necessary for ketchup?

Now, folks! It's time for the fated battle! This time, the battle will take place in the standard Robot Wars arena! This arena sees the introduction of the mighty house robots! Let's see who wins, shall we?

3, 2, 1, ACTIVATE

Almost immediately, Labrys dashes after the Automato57, intending to take out the weakest opponent first. But the Automato57 is not weak, no sir! With the power to destroy previous winner Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, it can defeat most opponents with ease! As such, it violently squirts it's ketchup all over the arena floor, causing Labrys to trip and slam down in the puddle of sticky, red sauce. The Automato57 quickly makes it's escape as Labrys struggles to get up due to the slippery condiment. Meanwhile, Destructor and Hetty are fighting in the other corner of the arena, which frankly isn't a fair fight. Destructor picks up Hetty by the handle and slams her on the ground, shattering her rear wheels! You'd think that Destructor would be done with Hetty, but he's only just begun! He grabs the vacuum cleaner by the nozzle and begins to swing it over his head, before throwing it into the arena's CPZ! This results in sending out the first house robot of SONM Robot Wars...

Image
Hypno-Disc!

Hypno-Disc rushes out, disc-a-whirring, darting towards Hetty with the bloodlust of a mighty warrior! Then, in a matter of moments, Hetty is sliced in two. Leaving her in an oily, dusty mess. Destructor has defeated Hetty! Now, back to Shadow Labrys and the Automato57! Labrys has finally got up from the messy puddle of ketchup and gives chase to the Automato, which has since moved far away into the arena, it's nutty! He's going for Destructor, who immediately returns the favour. But, the Automato squirts out another splash of ketchup, again causing a slip up! Destructor slips on the puddle, causing him to topple face-first! But wait! Isn't Labrys chasing after Automato too? Does that mean that...? YES! Destructor has crashed on top of Shadow Labrys, with neither of them able to get up! It looks like an easy victory for the Automato, the clear fan favourite! He's doing a victory dance, crashing into a tire in the process! But wait, the victory dance is going a bit out of control, isn't it? Watch out, Automato! WATCH OU-
CRASH!
Oh no! In the middle of his dance, The Heinz Automato57 has fallen into the Robot Wars pit! The tire he crashed into must of been the pit release button! What an upset! The Automato57 has lost! So, as the last surviving contestants, the winners are Destructor and Shadow Labrys!

THE WINNERS ARE SHADOW LABRYS AND DESTRUCTOR! HOORAH!

What a surprise that was! The next match has a lot to live up to, to say the least! Next time, Group Three must settle the score. So make sure you don't miss Robot Wars!

Yeah, I know! You'd think she'd know how to fight garbage by now, being a hoover.
Besides, if I had any host influence, the Automato would've won.

Due to mass hatred and scorn over the loss of the fan favourite: The Heinz Automato57, I have decided to partake in some...
Image

As a test of the upcoming RNG voting system, you as the general SONM public can decide the fate of the Automato57! Will he go through, replacing one of the winners, or will he stay in the pit like a loser? You decide!

Be sharpish, though. Voting's over once Group 3's battle starts.
