What is up you guys, this is SpaceKryptonite here to bring you the history of a robot that has dominated the over-tiering era along with the satellites This type of robot was a one shot killing machine and was very, very tiny Ladies and gents, we have been targeted by the Flappy also known as the Dart So why was this robot one of the most deadliest and what was its purpose? Before we get into this video, I want to help clear some confusion for new players This robot lived in a time of tiers where robot designs ranged from Tier 1 through 10 with 10 being the highest This determined how strong and tanky your robot was by placing your robot into a certain tier heavily relying on the parts you used Now that you are ready, let’s get started The Flappy has had the history of being obnoxiously overpowered and was known as an over-tiering monster which meant it faced enemies in the same tier, but it would wield a high tier weapon This in turn was sacrificing CPU, health, and size for outrageous damage The Flappy was very fast, maneuverable, difficult to target, and was able to carry 1 to 2 plasma launchers It was able to over-tier its weapon by 2 and could enter matches of Tier 3 through 10 since Rudders were only available in Tier 4 at the time Because the Dart was very fragile awareness was key for the player only to take shots when the plasma was full charged With this robot carrying an over-tiered weapon it could easily destroy its enemies with one shot even if the blocks around the pilot seat were barely exposed The Flappy had several nicknames such as the Dart, the Mosquito, the Flappy Bird typical over-tiered Flyer, I hate this, Ugh You get the picture This robot was hated by many since it was breaking the standards of being creative and was scooped down to an unfair robot that would wreck low level players also known as seal clubbing The Flappy was a fine and terrifying beast, but its origin was a tricky one The first of its kind was the Gnat created by Lynsis which was publicly viewed on June 12, 2014 The design of this robot had the building foundations of the Flappy, yet fairly large compare to the Flappy It utilized 2 T4 plasmas and 1 T2 plasma along with 5 rudders, but it was able to face Tier 2 robots? This robot was annoying to fight but was a decent size so enemies were able to take it down if they were aware of its presence Like many designs, the build evolved as other players built this robot and created their own versions. Fun Fact Lynsis named this robot Gnat because it is an annoying bug The Gnat grew in popularity, but didn’t explode evermore than the creation of this robot This was known as the Flappy created by Zomy which was publicly viewed on August 13th, 2014 The design was simplified utilizing 3 rudders and 1 over-tiered plasma launcher This design came in all sorts of flavors, styles, and utility What makes this different from the Gnat was its peak performance when it comes to maneuvering It is capable of precision turns and only utilizes 130 CPU at Tier 3 through 270 CPU in Tier 10 The Flappy was superior and its design was over-powered however, small builds like this were often confused with different names and a new name came about during its evolution This was the birth of the Dart also known as the Plasma Dart Players did differentiate them and often mixed the two names together The Dart was a creative version of the Flappy in exchange for CPU while the Flappy was just strictly about keeping it simple The Dart franchise did evolve and many builds were created Throughout its legacy, players would talk about how Flappys and Darts are taking over Robocraft and was in fact destroying the gameplay experience I kid you not, this form of over-tiering build was overpowered It was a seal clubbing successor and caught flame throughout Robocraft forums, Reddit, and even Robocraft Garage This was a breaking point in which the Flappy and the Dart was near its end March 19, 2015 came about the Dawn of the Megabots hotfix number 3 If this date sounds familiar to you, it's because its the same update that patched the Uber Warp Drive The adjustments done to Robocraft’s physics made the Flappy and Dart's flying capability obsolete Even with adjustments to its size and thruster positioning, the build was not maneuvering like how it would normally In the end, this build was a dangerous build that lived a fire loving legacy and will be remembered as a robot that made its dent in the old era of Robocraft So that pretty much wraps it up for this video, let me know in the comment section down below if you were playing in this era what did you consider this build? A flappy, a dart, or a mosquito Be sure to get some sneak peek action on what videos will be coming throughout this month by clicking the annotation or visit and see what video requests are coming to the channel Also I want to say happy birthday to Fawaz who is going to be growing older September 11 So make sure to eat tons of pizza because you deserve it Definitely, I want to thank you guys for watching Don’t forget to like and subscribe for all your roboneeds and until next time This is SpaceKryptonite logging out I will catch you guys later Hi guys, this is Mrs. SpaceKryptonite.
