"FOOLS! I shall smite you allwith my ironclad fist, and then I will drink your blood and rejoice. You are nothing before my might! Perish now and curse me in vain!"
-Naryar

Gametechmods is an internet forum designed to group people with a liking for bot building, shows centered around bot building (BattleBots, Robot Wars, etc. It focuses around the game Robot Arena 2, with tournaments being held almost all of the time. The most popular of these tournaments is BBEANS.


This website provides examples of:

  • A God Am I: Naryar, played for laughs
  • Affably Evil: More powerful members such as ACAMS, and Naryar are this.
  • Anti-Villain: ACAMS, Infiniteinertia, Naryar, and System32. While all sort of come off as {{Jerkass}es, they also have legitimate reasons for sounding abrasive (ACAMS and Naryar to keep people in line, Inf to give useful advice, S32 to talk sense into people).
    • Naryar would like to make a plead for Type IV Anti-Hero.
  • Badass: Clickbeetle, Joeblo, Naryar, Scrap Daddy, System32, NFX, Infiniteinertia... there's a couple. Naryar seems to be on this list quite a lot...
  • Badass Boast: About half of Naryar's posts. See the page quote.
  • Badass Normal: NFX, and Sonny_Resetti. Dominating, recently.
  • *batteries not included: Literally in some cases, in the instance of people entering Cheap Win 3000-style crawlers, notably System32 and Stagfish.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Don't ever stir shit in the showcases section. Naryar will have your skull on a pole.
    • Goldenfox doesn't like anyone insulting Scourge, Freeziez doesn't like being condescended, and Jonzu don't like being trolled.
    • Do not mention Obama to the admin. He may go berserk.
    • Don't flash.
  • Blessed with Suck: Many amateur bot builders have this, but the crowning BWS member had to be Garvin (before he returned with a better attitude). To the point where it was just hilarious.
    Groudonrobotwars: Garvin won the SFTW award already.
    Goldenfox: He should have called it Pathetica.
  • Book Ends: Averted with Story Time. It never ends. Except it's now been deleted. The ride never ends in the Playground.
  • Butt Monkey: Any stupid newbie. Also Jonzu, although not so much these days.
    • Helloface.
      • Shut up, Helloface.
  • Character Gush: Starcore
  • Cloudcuckoolander:
    • Garvin was this in his earlier days.
    • Also Story Time.
    • Especially the "Playground" section if you're too lame to handle it.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Insult to Injury V beating Pita 8, also Hard Bot defeating Naryar and Thyrus defeating 123savethewhales.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: A thing of the past, but it has existed, especially with several moderators with different points of view.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Naryar.
  • Double Post: Badly seen in certain sections of the forum, otherwise not so much.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: Many features of the website have changed, the most notable being tournaments being held through AI instead of online. Massimo V's swag has skyrocketed as well.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Ben Purse.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: ACAMS yells, argues, and bans all around... but he doesn't like the f-word.
  • Expy: Certain members can only build a limited style of bots.
    • Subverted with Craaig. Although he is known for building VS, to the point where he is almost directly connected with the style, he can build other creative and interesting bots as well.
    • Completely averted with Clickbeetle, Naryar and the best builders. They can build almost anything.
  • Famous Last Words: Averted with Radio F Software.
    RFS: i am leave
  • Fan Fic: Subverted with various contests held on the forum, including:
  • Failure Is the Only Option: it doesn't take long for a regular thread to get spammed beyond recognition by the same bunch of utter retards.
  • Flame Bait: Mazakari, Team 9, and Jonzu are go-to examples of this
  • French Jerk: Naryar #2awesome4u
  • Fun with Acronyms: GTM, RA2, BFE, AAM, Sft W, Bot M and the like. Many members have this as well (GF, RFS, RS, TRB, Mr. AS, GTG).
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Venko, ACAMS
  • I Am Very British: Goldenfox is like this every chance he gets. It's annoying.
  • Interspecies Romance: Jonzu and his furries. [[Once an Episode about once a month.]
  • Jerkass Hasa Point: System32's modus operandi, also sometimes Naryar.
  • Large Ham: Most predominantly Naryar and Madman, who sometimes have ham wars. Some other people try and do it to try to look important, but they mostly get out-hammed and shut up.
  • Me Too: G.K., far too frequently in every aspect of life. Still not as much as Massimo V, at start though.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: The "Troll Patrol", Naryar's Not Quite Evil Council (Naryar, NFX, G.K., Martymidget, SKBT, Vertigo/Trumpetguy), there's a few.
  • Suffers Newbies Poorly: Infinite Inertia, Pys, certain newer members
  • The Shepherd: Pwnator, Massimo V, G.K., and a few others
  • The Smurfette Principle: SOTG is the only active female member. although there have been others in the past. Massimo V has many females IRL though.
  • The Magnificent: Naryar
  • Thread Necromancer: Assorted, currently Helloface199.
  • Violent Glaswegian: System32, to the point that reading his posts in a Scottish accent is mandatory. NFX and Scourge are an aversion, however. Massimo V is Scottish.
  • White Knighting: G.K.
  • World of Chaos: The Playground. Occasionally overlaps with Crapsack World.
  • Word Salad Humor: Massimo V
