Went to antfreeze 2.5 last weekend. Jaguar went 0-2 again. Flipped by ant clank IV (or ant ratchet, cant remember), then pushed around and then into the pit by baby metal. The burning shadows of silence went 1-2 after some genourous donations of bolts from Alex Shakespeare and acetate from Peter Waller. It managed to knock test robot please ignore after a couple of hits, the front armour was cracked but no other damage. It was then somehow switched off by anticyclone, even though the switch is hidden away at the bottom. In its last fight, it was outdriven by doctor power 5 and pushed off the edge. In the annihilator it got to round three, where it broke down after getting a bent gearmotor shaft, thanks to why wait? The rest of the robot was annoyingly fixed by switching it off and on again. Jaguar will hopefully be rebuilt and the burning shadows of silence will probably stay the same.

won 2 fights (1 with each robot), then promptly lost 2 by breaking down for no apparent reason (happened in tag team too), came 2nd in an annihilator then jaguar got wrecked in the rumble (fixed the electronics though, needs a rebuild anyway.)

AWS 49-

Jaguar was more damaged than i thought - it worked ok in my bedroom, i knew the chassis was a bit bent so it wasn't quite up to scratch but it wobbled around the arena far slower than i expected. It was quickly pushed out by Termite Cluster (Peter Waller's 2wd pusher with a nanoweight partner), and then lasted longer against buffy as I adjusted my wedge to be higher than his undercutter so i could push him around a bit. Unfortunately he got me against the wall and somehow flipped me on my back with a hs. Jaguar then got destroyed in some rumbles to finally force me to retire/rebuild it. 0-2, lifetime 1-10.

The Burning Shadows, a 3d printed lifter that I only made about 10% of, first went up against Trigger, which was a robot made out of an old version of Dave Weston's Baby Hell. I was quickly pushed out as he was much quicker than me and I am quite bad at driving so i couldnt do much about him. I was then against Joey McConnell-Farber's SDF II, a 2wd pusher. After much pushing and shoving in the middle of the arena which was a bit boring (Joey asking for the snooker scores at one point), I got a good shove and to my surprise, pushed him out of the arena and won the fight. I was then up against Lemmings, a cluster that is usually made up of 6 nanoweights that was made up of just 4, luckily for me. I spent a minute trying to get one out of the arena while they pushed me around a bit but not doing much. I got 2 out, and then broke a wheel on the other. I spent another minute trying to get another out without driving off, however it was quite hard to push and i didn't want to risk driving out so i took the fight to a judges decision, winning easily. I was then pitted against Khaledius Maximus, a 2wd flipper which after a bit of pushing and shoving in the middle in which none of us got anywhere, I got a good push and pushed him out. I was then back up against Trigger. After a good start, getting round to his sides and pushing him around, he got me in the corner and used his axe to flip me against the wall and push me out of the arena, putting me out and putting him through to the last 16. The Burning Shadows went 3-2, lifetime 5-6.

I had a great time, and i will rebuild Jaguar in the near future, and work on my driving and maybe look into getting a better servo for The Burning Shadows.
