now they Need a Sponsor each, and a TV-Station to market the fight

next could be a Commercial production model that can be built in a small series.or, as there are two models ATM ther could be two models...


after that there could be a league and "celebrity bot-matches"

And those things will be operated by high school teenagers with enough angst to rival with that of Kai Allard-Liao

i think there would soon be a few professionals running These.

i imagine the game as some enlarged paintball game.
short idea of rules:
there are identical Chassis (or rather similar ones)

every bot has 3 weapon-locations: left arm, right arm and shoulder mounted.

when a weapon or its Location is hit by a medium sized or large paintball that weapon must not be used anymore.
when a the Torso is hit by one large or at least two medium paintballs the bot is out of the game
when the head is hit by a medium or large paintball the bot is out of the game, and the Pilot must not compete in official fitghts for 14 days.

there are several possible weapon-types:
- single shot large paintball guns with about 6 loads
- faster loading single shot medium paintball-guns with about 24 shots

-large Missiles with a large paintball-warhead, that fire in a salvo of 4
-medium sized Missiles that have medium sized paintball warheads and fire in a salvo of sixteen
-medium sized Missiles that fire two loads of 9 each


each weapon location could have one weapon

weapoms that fire small paintballs would only be interesting if human Players would be allowed, in that case protective gear that withstands the Impact of a heavy PB must be worn.
it might also be feasible to smear the oponents Windows with small paintballs.

there could be one on one fights with a league
there could also be Team fights with a Team league

different "weight classes" with different numbers of weapon Locations are possible.

interesting.

from a Battletech Point of view that could be seen as Primitive modified agro/lumber mechs.

of Course no really dangerous weapons were used.

If i were them i would look into:
- shotgun-launched taser rounds
- a Taser that fires wires
- net launcher (for entanglement)
-water cannon (loaded with saltwater)
