    Discuss being a builder, in general.

    Oi, don't forget, as per the rules, when continuing discussion into another build, specify the number of the build you are referring to. Vastly outdated conversation may be archived and very specific conversations may be moved to their very own thread.

    The build number of this thread will be updated to the current build. No new discussion threads will be created, but you can use the number as a reference while creating your own. That way you do not need to look it up everytime you want to create a new thread.

    Build right now is 354.

    I think this would deserve a thread, it spretty damn awesome. If you want I will make it into a seperate thread later. This is more for if you have some random tid bits you don't really want to write out or just show off some base without a real explanation (as many people do sadly in seperate threads) or ofc. just discuss some matter that you thought is worth talking about. You show an idea for alternative supports, I think that does well deserve its own thread (especially since its well written/with pictures and everything).

    about the second one, placing them under teambridges...
    I do that all the time!
    I really LOVE this little trap of mine...
    the only drawback, is that everyone mentions avocado's everytime I use it.
    if somebody knows the answer, PLEASE! tell me why!
    (ps) this trap DOES work, and if you don't agree, just jump in when you see it.

    One, this is an old thread. Needs updating anyway but yeah.

    Two, "Acavado" traps are:


    I highly recommend you use the search function on the forums before reviving a dead topic. That still is a nice trap though. :p

    AH! now I get why!
    but thats really dumb, cause I've used those traps since my very first battle...
    I tried to make a regular trap, but i made a mistake. when I tried getting out... U guess what happened :skull:
    so, in fact, the only reason that they are called Avocado traps, is that he's the first one to make a thread about them? :huh?:
    that is just silly.:huh?:

    Acavado made that thread about them on November 8th, (I see you joined February 29th), and I imagine she used them before she made the thread. Your trap isn't necessarily an Acavado trap, but most people "assume" any trap using bridges to reorient spikes in a specific way are Acavado spikes. It may or may not be "silly", but that is how it works around here. ;)

    I didn't say your trap was an Acavado trap, I was just saying why people assume that it is one. I would not consider that an Acavado trap, but it more closely resembles a Shredder.

    First, it is Acavado, and not avocado, and second, avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable.

    IT IS!? I thought it was a vegetable...
    and by the way, most people spell it wrong, I know that cause I started checking if people "associated it with vegetables" after some time. (now I know that they thought it was an acavado trap...)

    shredder... you're right, but the shredder shreds you by shaving your arms of, when you fall down hugging the wall. this trap shreds you when you try to doorclimb the wall.
    (I do use the Shredder sometimes, but then with trapdoors in the holes, to make it teamsafe)
    to clear stuff up:
    I had a F'd up date installed when I bought KAG, and I think the forum set my joining date automatically...
    Also, I played KAG with a friend before i bought it, and i "invented" the trap when I was messing around on his version of KAG (I used the "s, because someone else probably invented it even earlier) this was a couple of months before I bought it myself.

    I wanna thank killatron for curing me of my avocado-paranoia. :B):
