GLADIATORS

Dying to Entertain You.

Overview:

The Ratings Wars were as bitter as they've always been. With the waning of Professional Zombie Racing, it was time to fall back on that perennial crowd pleaser: giant robot gladiators.

Gladiatorial bouts should be between mechs of the same size. We used Mech Size 8, and each mech had Jump Jets. Some were simply taken form the other lists on this site, some were modified existing designs, the rest were built from scratch.

 

Special Gladiator Rules: Victory Point System.
Giant robot gladiators existed solely for ratings. And what got ratings? Violence! The victor was not necessarily the last one standing, but who caused the most carnage. 

Inflicting a hit that causes damage = 1 point.

Causing a Critical = 3 points.

Inflicting a hit that caused the destruction of an opponent's mech = 10 points.

Note that the second and third turns of automatic damage by flamethrowers also earns points.

Bonus: each mech you destroy increases your Action Card hand size by 1; KILL THEFT is not only allowed, but encouraged!

So, inflicting a hit (1 point) that causes a Critical (3 points) and destroys the target mech (10 points) would earn you 14 points and increase you Action Card hand size by 1.

Highest point total at the end of the game wins regardless of whether their mech is still functional or the pilot is alive.
