Playtests of Brikwars on Tabletop Simulator

Post by ninja_bait » Fri Jun 19, 2020 10:47 am

I've released a brikwars mod for the game Tabletop Simulator. The following are battle reports from playtests I did with the mod:

GAME ONE: ninja_bait vs aoffan23

We started on opposite corners of the map with 5 regulars, 1 vehicle, and 1 hero each. I was red.
Image

Blue kicked things off by exploding some kegs of maniac beer.
Image

Meanwhile, one regular begins staring patriotically into their starting point bonfire.
Image

Red sends their space scooter flying into enemy territory.
Image

First blood!
Image

aoffan created a giant pink turn counter.
Image

Meanwhile, the Red regulars take up the high ground against the bulk of the Blue army.
Image

The Red hero stubs his toe on a space rock.
Image

Then he aggros some friendly fire from his incompetent troops.
Image

The Blue space scooter delivers a keg of maniac beer to the Reds. "I don't think we were expecting a package," Red says.
Image

aoffan and ninja_bait discuss who Shaggy is.
Image

Required listening:


A Blue regular is doused in beer.
Image

Mr. Boombastic reveals himself and destroys the 3 Red troops and his own space scooter in one massive beer explosion.
Image

Aoffan reveals his real plan - Flanking!
Image

Meanwhile, the Blue Hero gets himself stuck in the Red space scooter's magnetic loader after a failed hijacking feat.
Image

The Reds continue shooting themselves.
Image

The Red hero accidentally shrinks himself after activating the radioactive moon rocks.
Image

Unfazed, he goes after the nearest Blue troop.
Image

Instead, he finds himself getting monched :omnom:
Image

The Blue team manages to capture Red's flag.
Image

As well as a keg of maniac beer.
Image

Oh, something has gone wrong.
Image

Wielding the Blue Hero as a weapon, the Red space scooter murders the patriotric blue troop in the back.
Image

As per tradition, here is a picture of something but I forget what.
Image

Red space scooter's reign of terror continues, spearing Mr. Boombastic.
Image

Meanwhile, aoffan continues working on the objective.
Image

Here are some more pictures. I think they show the Blue hero failing, again, to hijack the space scooter and the Red pilot using him as a weapon.
Image

Image

I guess it went wrong.
Image

aoffan's funny profile pic
Image

The last Red trooper gets sad. And also a Last Man Standing Benny!
Image

Blue hero encourages him to stand and fight. It's not worth fighting a sad boi, and also THERE'S NO CRYING IN BRIKWARS
Image

This backfires, as the now-happy Red trooper murderizes the flag bearer.
Image

Meanwhile, a Red trooper ghost appears behind Blue hero to do battle.
Image

Blue hero ain't afraid of no ghosts, though, and dispatches him easily. Worth noting the ghost is his fault though for failing a feat.
Image

The last Blue trooper bravely picks up the Red flag in the maniac beer fire.
Image

The Blue hero pursues the last Red trooper.
Image

And self-immolates instead.
Image

Fortunately the last blue guy has made it off the map with the flag, winning the game!
Image

But he decides to come back in to finish the job and fails on a sprint roll.
Image

With Red lying in wait, he is murdered when he returns.
Image

Red has won!

Game two: ninja_bait vs. Space Bunny

I was yellow. Slightly smaller army size this time.
Image

Space Bunny was blue. He decided to forgo the space scooter in favor of three more troops.
Image

First combat occurs between the Blue hero and the Yellow space scooter.
Image

Yellow hero decides to try a flanking maneuver.
Image

Yellow space scooter moves on and attacks the nearest squad of blue troops.
Image

Yellow hero tries to smash through the wall of this base and surprise the blue troops on the other side, but flattens himself instead.
Image

These fellows enjoy a light conversation.
Image

And then finish off the Yellow trooper sneaking up on them.
Image

This yellow trooper tries to get the jump on Blue hero.
Image

This blue trooper gets lightly singed.
Image

A Yellow trooper kills him from above.
Image

The Blue hero attacks the Yellow troops defending the Yellow flag.
Image

Image

Blue troopers gang up on the Yellow roof trooper with no effect.
Image

The Yellow trooper hops off the roof and kills a Blue trooper in a fiery explosion.
Image

But his pursuers are dogged and unafraid.
Image

Blue Hero struggles to get away with the Yellow Flag.
Image

The invincible Yellow trooper pursues him.
Image

Surrounded, Blue hero contemplates his options.
Image

And runs away.
Image

Nyeh heheheh
Image

The remaining Yellow troopers try to clean up.
Image

With the space scooter, they manage to prevent the hero from escaping.
Image

And, I think, they kill one of the remaining blue troopers.
Image

However, one wily fellow gets away! Blue victory!

GAME THREE: ninja_bait vs. Shaggy vs. Space Bunny vs. aoffan23 vs. arkbrik

10 u" budget. Objective: figure out the objective.

Shaggy opens the game trying to drive one of his three space scooters into Space Bunny's blue troops. And flips.
Image

The remaining black scooters declare war on blue.
Image

Space Bunny negotiates a tentative alliance with aoffan's yellow troops. Only the space scooter driver is allied with Yellow.
Image

Meanwhile, arkbrik's Red troops drunkenly stumble around their corner of the map.
Image

Yellow deploys troops against the single Red space scooter that managed to make a successful movement.
Image

Red gets first blood against Yellow.
Image

My white troops turtle in the back of the map while their hero sets himself on fire. He was hoping for a stat boost but just got burnt.
Image

Yellow activates their generator trap, forming a wall of electricity to protect them.
Image

Shaggy's hero is exploded. Also, he went AFK.
Image

This guy is not good at walking.
Image

Blue hero summons a monster from a crater. Was hoping for a sand worm, tried for a giant minifig, settled for a built in Basilisk asset.
Image

Blue rolls an epic damage roll.
Image

Meanwhile, white's hero burns to death.
Image

White combines fire against Space Bunny's summoned aberration, quickly dispatching it. It has a great death animation.
Image

Space Bunny upgrades the Blue Hero's gun.
Image

Red sends their space scooter against the Blue one.
Image

This is just a cool shot. Difficult to achieve in real life.
Image

Space Bunny sends his hero to desecrate white's hero.
Image

success!
Image

White hijacks one of Black's scooters.
Image

Then the troops combine fire on the blue hero, killing him so dead he gets buried with a headstone.
Image

Another blue guy dies. Press F to pay respects.
Image

Red, Blue, and Yellow get locked in intense battle over the Blue scooter.
Image

For the moment, Yellow is successful.
Image

Yellow sends their scooter to face White's.
Image

The Yellow trooper with a keg on his head catches on fire.
Image

The white trooper somehow captures the red scooter and dons cool sunglasses. :csi:
Image

pew pew! I don't think anything was actually happening here, just a lucky picture.
Image

In the end the Red team makes off with the black scooter. Having achieved the objective, they win! However, stealing a scooter was the objective invented by aoffan, so aoffan wins!

Holding a Brikwar in a Trianglist church? Heresy!


Looks great!
