Create a new rule entitled “Damage” as follows:

When a Bot’s hardware component suffers condition loss, that condition loss is known as damage.

If a Bot’s System would take damage greater than the total remaining Condition of that System, the difference between the damage inflicted and the remaining Condition of that system is applied as damage to that Bot’s next-frontmost System, or to the Bot’s Chassis if the bot has no next-frontmost System.

CoV actually, maybe against if I’m voting against the Spiking the Spikes. It would be trivial to rack up thousands of damage and insta-kill a bot.

Oh, I’m sure no one would try a stunt like that.

Arguably this is a technical nerf to ablative plating as well; optimally you put ablative plating at the back, so this would shunt the damage past the first two systems to the plating which, when overwhelmed, would spill back into the chassis rather than the frontmost systems.

(If this fails, I’m going to argue that “damage” doesn’t count as condition loss against my bot next time I lose a match.)
