hey so noticed some of the clan were playing this RoboCraft game. I downloaded it and it's pretty great. Deserves a post.


Basically you build a lego tank and fight through other players in their own custom tanks to capture the enemy base.

It's free! And for a freemium game it's not bad. If you pay real dollars you can level up faster, but since combat is separated into tiers anyway there's no real need to level up fast that I can see.

Leveling up gets you access to better stuff to build with, obviously.

There's support for platoons so I guess we could play together? Not sure, have only played an hour.

Yeah the tricky thing with platoons is that unless you pay, only 3 players can be in one platoon. If you pay extra for something (smith? details?) you can have a 4 man squad, but even that isn't much better. But yeah, stupidly fun game.

ah ok, platoons are 3 normally or 4 if the leader is premium. I'm sure we'll have a few people pick up premium.

that's no big deal looks like they'll add friends and clans later.

I don't see how it can really have smurfs.

If I put enough tier 2 shit on my tank it forces me to play with other people at tier 2.

I've played maybe 2 hours and I can already make a tank that maxes out tier 1. It has 6 tier 2 guns but everything else in tier 1. If I add so much as a tier 2 wheel it bumps me up.

That's pretty fair. Maybe there's more leeway at higher levels? Is it a problem?

Well, I'm not 100% sure how their system works, but basically the Tier you are in is based on A) how complicated your ship is (how many overall blocks/items) and B) how high the Tier of the blocks/items is.

The smurfs I've seen have ships that roughly shaped like a cross, made of 5 blocks of helium (3 blocks stacked with 2 1-block arms), a drivers seat on top, and a level 10 rail gun on the bottom. This is simple enough and has few enough high tier blocks to allow it to be a "Tier 1" craft. So he joins, floats straight up over the point, and 1-shot snipes everyone across the map (the rail gun has a zoomed scope).

An example (this guy is not really good) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-T2VUVbFZA

rofl. i guess i'll see how often that happens when i hit tier 2. also they're saying that in the next patch railguns automatically block you from lower tiers.

anyway I have this tier 1 tank now, but if I add a headlamp i'm tier 2. what.

if you're playing this, make sure you're building tough cores: http://imgur.com/a/sLDgJ

so i'm tier 6 now.

the smurfing that smith talked about they fixed by nerfing railguns. You can't hide as a sniper there's a big visible laser shining out for 2 seconds before you fire. Also anyone w/ weapons way over the tier they in will have to sacrifice all their armor.

great reddit post on robocraft basic tips for newbies.

I'll summarize the most important:
1. use Q to spot enemies, just like in battlefield!
2. If you're getting one-shotted then you're building your tank wrong.
3. Stick with your team

attaching picture of what was left of my tank after a fierce battle.
