    Gauntlet is fun and all, but something that would make it more fun is some competition. As such, until we get some multiplayer features added (if we do), I've decided to make a topic for people to submit their times to various cups, inspired by the old Sumo Leagues.

    There are 6 cups and 2 courses, for a total of 12 categories. Each category has some rules, a corporation requirement and a movement limit. What these are depends on the category, but it is very simple.

    Since "flying tech" is hard to define, I'll keep it vague and say that a non-flying tech is one that spends the majority of the time on the ground.

    To submit your times, make a post on this topic with a ghost of your run and a snapshot of the tech you used. I will link to these posts in the entry on this OP. No rewards, just bragging rights and a challenge.

    Quick Question. Seeing as though GeoCorp lacks the ranged weapons, are they still restricted to drilling tools as their form of weapon?

    Yep. All the corp cups can only use blocks within their corps.

    No size limitations, though, so if you think that survivability will be a problem, you can always add armor.

    Racing with geocorp is honestly kind of dull, since it seems like the maximum speed for the corp is around 31 on flats. Not much you can do to improve your tech at such a slow speed. That might change when Geocorp tracks get added to gauntlet, though, but probably not by much.

    IDK. Maybe this could bring some advancement in movement, maybe with wheel bounces or something. It seems like bouncing your wheels off of objects is actually faster than moving straight, but it is hard to tell and hard to do.

    @saiwun
    The forum is giving me issues with the size of the post when trying to correct FightBiscuit's time. Weird, as I am only flipping a couple of characters around.

    Is that a problem with the forum, or should I split the leaderboards for Home Run and Rolling Thunder?

    Still have an issue, but now with a different error message. Says I need to have less than 3000 characters, but I have well under that.

    I'm pretty sure that Rolling Thunder with Geocorp vehicles are impossible, because there is a solid wall tech in the middle of the course, and Rolling Thunder doesn't allow Geocorp drills. So the only way to get through is by using a naked cab to destroy the wall (because it has a built-in drill), but that's very difficult to do because you have to dodge all of the turrets without dying before getting to the wall.

    Hmm. That's a good point.

    I guess you could detach the cab when you get to that spot. Or maybe we should allow you to add dispenser parts to the tech regardless of the corp.
