Dude I am so excited. I will be watching this shit. Brings back good memories.

If I remember correctly, they had a few "house" bots that were really professionally built. Is that still the case?

I saw the title and thought this was a new super cool Codex competition, and then I clicked. -_-

It's a lawnmower engine. That's like 50% of bots.

 

The newest addition to the Flight Rising Trading post. Let's discuss this...

No, that is Robot Wars.

Spinbots take a while to power up. If you close the distance early on, there's no way they can get the momentum for powerful hits. Notice after each hit, Icewave runs away to get the blades going again, Razorback should have pulled a Mayweather and hugged that shit out while driving him towards the pulverizer.

I watched the first episode. That was enough for me. Lol, not enough to really keep me hooked and it was almost like pro-wrestling.

Yeah. Tombstone was robbed. By hubris. But robbed, nevertheless.
