Proposal: Evading a repeal

Timed out and passed, 6-1. Josh

If the proposal Dodgy Mechanics passed, revert the changes it made to the rules.

Reword the rule Evasion to:

When a Bot evades, it moves out of the direct line of attack, requiring its opponent to compensate. If the evading bot did not evade on its previous turn this bout, the evading Bot is not considered to be present in any space until the start of its next Turn; except for the purposes of BotScript Triggers, Sudden Death detonations and being In Bounds.

If multiple Bots occupy the same space, they both take Scratch Damage and the bot that moved most recently bypasses forwards to the first empty space it reaches.

Add the following triggers:

If the [first / second / third / [...]] closest Opponent is evading…
If the current [turn / round] number is [odd / even]...

In case a full repeal is a bit hasty, I’ve got an alternative solution which is cut down from a previous proposal - you just can’t dodge more than once in a row, but it’s now a complete dodge of all weapons. You’re now not invisible, but the ability to see that someone is dodging remains, as well as a new trigger for general use. Also, as funny as it would be, dodging into someone when they’re facing the same direction as you no longer fires both bots forwards at high speeds into the sunset.

(Note: I reserve the right to tactically CoV if this looks like it’s going to pass before my match with Hard Hat.)

against Mmm, CoV both for tactical reasons and because I’ve just now realized this doesn’t include the standard revert-set-to-staging clause.
