Cpt. Hook was a good first attempt at a combat bot. I'm satisfied with how he turned out, but I now want to change 100% of the things I did on him. On Sunday at AVC I entered him into a few rumbles against some beetle weights and his armor held up really well. At the end of the day I had the chance to see him off in splendor, so this is how Cpt. Hook died:
In the end, his mono-body armor was remarkable strong. The aluminum armor wasn't ideal, but the method of construction proved itself. After 3 hits from poison arrow I was able to reconnect the battery, attached a fresh wheel and drive. Overall, I call him a success and next year's bot is already in the works.
