This does start at the begining of the finals of the Gundam fight. I think that part has been in place since the begining of the game.

I’m almost finished bashing my brain to make the Corsair State Gundam. Most of the Bio stuff is ready but I’m still mashing together the Stat levels.

Heretic, does this mean that the Cosair's Gundam may have underlying influences from the Crossbones? 8)

That would actually be cool....

Also, i've made the required adjustments to my Gundam. :D

Yeah, I always thought it'd be cool if the Corsair State's Gundam took some design cues from the X-Bone series...I mean, they're "Pirate Gundams" - literally.

So, will we be able to see a pic of the Corsair State Gundam once you're finished with it?

He already said one was on the way, give it some time. This thing will get going soon enough.

I’m not making a dedicated Corsair Gundam Franken, but another Franken I’ve been working on called the “Gundam Heretic” (yes the one that inspired my screen name) looks close enough to the part to be a stand in. It has no Crossbone in its design but it definitely looks like it could be a pirate Gundam.

Sorry. Didn't mean to sound impatient.

Before I get around to the Corsair Gundam, I'd like to point out that since the Corsair State did not compete in the previous Gundam Fight (since it didn't even exist at the time) its model number would be GF3-00XCS. ;)

Corsair is posted, once Cardi checks my math on the stats and we finish arguing over the model number it will be approved. Then I and he will have to work out who fights who and all that other arrangement stuff. Most of that will probably be his area since Cardi is the one who thought up the round robin thing in the first place.

After all the troubles we’ve had with Xs in model numbers…

Last paragraph of its profile I tried to explain its ranking since I figured it would have to go though some qualifying fights in order to be admitted into the tournament. I think I might have forgotten to put the 3 in the “GF3” part. :oops:

One last thing, it’s not a part of the fight rules but I think it could be. If a Gundam is no longer able to function, i.e. lost its power, arms and legs ripped off or what have you. I think it’s a given that it has lost the fight. The rules already state that a Gundam loses when the head is destroyed, but I think it wouldn’t hurt to be clear on loss of function as well.

Well, in that case I suppose the opponent would be expected to just destroy/remove the head for completion's sake.

stupid question, I've never done an RPG like this, how does the round robin system work?

The Black Knight Gundam would keep fighting until it lost its head... or perhaps until someone said "ni" to it... :lol:
Don't call it a comeback...
...in fact, it's best if you forget I was ever here before.

Cardi, there were instances in the anime where a Gundam was defeated without having its head destroyed correct? And since the head being knocked off doesn’t result in being eliminated in our tournament, it doesn’t seem entirely necessary to destroy the head if a fighter can disable his opponent in some other way.

Round robin is where each person gets to chance to fight every person at least once.

Therefore all of us will have the chance to throwdown and jackslap each other at least once.

In theory at least. The mods might change it for time constraints or whatever.

EDIT: Fritz beat me to it. <.<
Hmm. Luke, this Gundam reminds me of a puzzle.

As i'm currently working on a sketch of my Gundam, here's some reference material on what it is based on....

Now, just so you guys understand, Trinidad Carnival is like Mardi Gras, except bigger, badder, and more awesome (there really isn't any words to describe it). Most people wear costumes and party, dance, parade and so forth.

Also, the super mode will be based on something like this...

... although it may be a little bit different lol
