Battlebots Season 3 (Season 8)

Post by Siphai » Fri May 11, 2018 8:32 am

Tombstone vs. Minotaur

Tombstone wins in a no contest fight. If you think otherwise you're an idiot.

Blacksmith vs. Bite Force

Unless they changed it so Blacksmith's hammer does anything at all, Bite Force takes this easily.

Mecha Rampage vs. Duck vs. Free Shipping

I have no idea what the format for the new series is gonna be but judging from the fight card it does seem nice that they take all the useless robots and throw them in a rumble.

Anyway Mecha Rampage probably wins this if its bar actually does anything? Otherwise its Duck. These guys all look equally bad.

Subzero vs. Huge

Malvern is like right next to me, damn. Anyway Huge looks like a bunch of bullshit but I don't know what Subzero can actually do to it. Really depends if Huge's weapon can actually do any damage which it probably can't.

Bombshell vs. Lock-Jaw

This is probably the closest fight of the night. Bombshell looks bad ass though in its redesign, even if it's another wedge into bar spinner. I don't know if Lock-Jaw can spend the whole fight not getting hit. Bombshell wins.

Kraken vs. Sharkoprion vs. Deviled Egg

All these guys suck who fucking cares. I am so sick of 'showbots'. why don't you 'show' me a 'bot' that doesn't fucking suck!!!!! Peace out.

I WAS RIGHT idiot. you have to be a complete fucking moron to think otherwise. this was why MY results were hte bests and everyone elses were WRONG&#33; NEXT FIGHT

I was right again except it looked like for a second blacksmiths hammer did a stupid Chomp to BF but thankfully that last charge into the screws revesed all the pretend damage that BS was doing. From looking at the way they scoring JDs now (2p for Dmg, 1p for Agg, 1p for Strat, 1p for Ctrl) hitting dudes with a weapon isn't as op as last season but still good and this match was a good primer for the season.

I was BASICALLY right which is still TECHNICALLY right which is ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. I didn't even realize Free Shipping was a forklift attached to Original Sin lmfao. Anyway Duck looks solid as hell and MR doesn't look bad either. These ugys were all actually really good but I would've liked to see ORs forklift work right.

This counts. I'm counting this. Huge's weapon actually didn't do a whole heck of a lot but SZ sucks. RIP.

I didn't realize LJ had a spinner lmfao. Thus I'm counting this as a no contest. Bye.

[/quote]I think its an invert of RoboChallenge's format, with more head to heads than rumbles. Either that or someone got drunk and selected those robots for a rumble for some laughs.

Also the second rumble was shown because you reposted the episode on the network or some shit, I don't know.

Yeti vs. Witch Doctor

This is probably a who hit's who's wheels first sort of match. Witch Doctor has the stronger drum BUT I wonder how Witch Doctor's srimech will come into play here. I feel like WD will get flipped and then have his srimech get bashed by Yeti and we'll see an upset. Yeti probably takes this one unless he loses too many wheels.

Vanquish vs. Icewave

This is a poor matchup for Icewave, given the sloped plow. I never felt like Icewave's spinner was all that powerful, especially compared to Tombstone or whoever, but I also don't know how thick Vanquish's armor is. If Icewave can get a cut in on the plow that he can hit, maybe take the right angles, then maybe. But Vanquish will probably win this.

RotatoR vs. Petunia

We didn't get to see a lot of Rotator last time, so how effective the blades are is yet to be seen. Petunia needs to come in very quickly and immediately grab Rotator to have a chance in this. Petunia's crusher is actually pretty impressive, but again this is gonna come down to how well protected Petunia is. Rotator probably wins this one.

Red Devil vs. Brutus

We could either see Brutus get a lot of quick shots on Red Devil's tracks and take this win, or we could see Red Devil vs. Witch Doctor part 2. I actually like Red Devil's ability to get under Brutus and avoid the spinner completely, and I'm not sure if Brutus is well controlled enough to get to Red Devil's sides reliable. Probably Red Devil??

End Game vs. Captain Shrederator

Captain Shrederator probably gets flipped but I'd like to see him win anyway so I'm at least rooting for him.

I should've KNOWN Vanquish sucks. It's made by Brits.

Called it. Witch Doctor's srimech got ripped off and then I guess an electrical fire lol. Don't mess with alaska.

Never trust the British lol. How you make your robot so bad it gets split in half.

IO should've trusted the Dutch, but their crusher actually looked really shitty lol. What was going on. But rotator has real reliability problems.

<blockquote class='quote_blockquote'><dl><dt>Fish Of Doom</dt><dd>May 19 2018, 02:15 AM</dd></dl><div>The night of electrical fires[/quote]Rotator's the only one that really pushed the decision though. I really couldn't see Brutus doing much during the match and even if Captain Shrederator didn't break down it still seemed to slow and vulnerable - it would've been a tough match

Witch Doctor, Brutus, and Rotator all had smoke and loss of weapon. When I saw witch doctor's weapon stop under yeti, but the saws still trying to turn, I was like "You guys are gonna blow your motor" and sure enough.

[/quote]Perhaps you can enlighten us on how the Americans make such good robots such as the one robot that managed to damage itself whilst attacking the floor or that one robot with about 2 humans worth of ground clearance being high centered or the 'most original' robot being an enlarged version of Straddle?
