Robocraft - The lovechild of Lego and WoT/WoWP/WT

Recommended Posts

Have you felt like playing WoT/WoWP/WarThunder but always chafed at an inability to really customize what you drive/fly? 

Check this game out. Currently free to download and play, and in alpha.

Similarities to WoT:
Tier based "auto-lobby" MM system going up to 10
Tech tree
Familiar cap system
Platoon + premium "account" system

Differences
Thrusters, hoverblades, movement in the 3rd dimension
Voxel-based armor - dynamically lose parts
Construct your own vehicles with various modes of propulsion with "lego-like" blocks.
Bigger maps

Still in alpha. But check it out, seems awesome. I can't play it at the moment, so tell me how it is (200~mb download size). Apparently they have just introduced a platoon system.

Oh, and since there's robot in the title, I thought I'd link a pretty chill movie I watched recently

I've played it, at tier 2 myself (could go to tier 3, but I'll stay here and farm credits). In my experience, lemming trains seem to work and the cap is VERY important, usually the difference between win or lose. A tip for building, don't make a vehicle with weak links, like if you have guns attached via blocks, then those blocks can be shot off and the guns will be lost.

 

Overall a pretty fun game, matches are rather quick too. If you want more info/tips, I can help you out.

So could I just make a tank with heaps of bricks on the front, TD style and find a chokepoint?

I'm surprised this game isn't filled with giant penises shooting each other.

The devs have a strict no-tolerance policy in that regard, so one won't be seeing any floating laser-blasting rotating swastikas/crucifixes of doom.

The phallus is quite an aerodynamic shape, so that will be harder to regulate.

With that said, the pubbies in this game are much easier to appreciate

Go for it, but some dude in a gunship/hovertank can easily divebomb you from above/sides. The attempts to carry over the cancer WoT TD meta will be short lived here. Plus the maps are gigantic and there aren't any real chokepoints so to speak at this stage

That and that low tier guns have low range, my strategy is to spam guns in various locations with a rectangular prism base, will screenshot later.

actually, there isn't much range difference between the guns, other that front guns have 4% more range but 4% less dmg than top guns

Well, I mean at lower tiers the guns don't have much range as a whole, so TDs would not be a very good strategy

They don't have much range at any tier.  level 1 guns have 50m range.  level 5s front guns have (wait for it) 55m range.

RIP WOT

 

Man...  downloaded a couple of days ago, after a somewhat shitty night on west server was a bout to go to bed and then i saw the shortcut on my desktop.. long story short.. 4 hours passed, still tier 2. 

 

This is so fucking fun.. seriously worth it.

 

Has anyone tried the platoons yet?

They're definately still in an early stage. While you can now PM people, that function is unwieldy and there is also no platoon chat. I'd recommend getting on TS with however you are with first.

I've had the same experience. I only just bumped myself to tier 3 today as I felt I needed better components to go up more tiers. I feel that slowly working up the tiers has been productive as I have enough armor 1 (green?) blocks to build my craft. Working on getting all the modules is fun and feels like an accomplishment. A question on tech points, once everything unlocks can they be converted into RP?

I don't know anything about any plans to do stuff with converting TP to RP, but they are planning on added new blocks like plasma guns (arty-like, similar to the wraith in Halo) and railguns (that are for sniping platforms).

ALL OF MY YES

 

Not only will I not have my framerate die when I get in a big fight, but I'll be able to play it on my old PC as well.

 

For the lazy, this is a big optimization patch due early next week.

I think Tedster59 goes here, but I can't remember. His username is the same in Robocraft, as is mine. Feel free to add yourselves to the list.
