Apparently the kill switch on capt shredderator wouldn’t respond, which is why it just sat there spinning.

I love watching how the robots evolve to meet certain threats and in a manner that allows the operators to better use their skills to match those of opponents. The creativity of the builders and users makes this series special!

Yeah, Back in the day, nobody had an answer for Biohazard. Then came a Nightmare. That had to put a roof on the Battlebox for that one.
Ziggo and Scrap Daddy were enough to make it interesting along the way.

The narrator stuff is annoying. The Discovery+ pimping is too much when it blocks the action.

The fights are better than last week however. (not as good as Uppercut v/s Chomp... some day. Wink )

Huge vs Kraken was a great match-up.

Missed it this week and just caught the repeat. Just watched Tombstone vs Skorpios. What a great fight. The sport combines engineering, driving talent, and strategy. Lots of fun.

So many vertical spinner bots with devastating power, Jackpot sets the bar for reach, except for Huge.

Many of the horizontal spinners can be set to spin low or "high", wrong choice ban be very ineffective. A vertical spinner with reach is probably gonna touch you.

I too have enjoyed the evolutionary changes of the Bots over the years.

At least 1/2 of the talking head team needs to go. And I don't mean the ex-MMA champ.

We make a point to watch on discovery the next day or 2. That way the 2 hour program can easily shrink to 1 hour of actual 'watch THIS' time. Our remote has a 'FF' button which is very helpful.

And while I like Tombstone & the pilot, their era is moving further into the past, just like the Hudson guy & his 4 wheel vertical spinner (sorry, forgot the droid name).

That MIT bot with low spinner on one end & the very effective low armored wedge on the other is on the rise.

The covid-audience compliance configuration won't last long given any other choices.

I wonder if they can rent BETA out to clipper ships or anyone laying train tracks?

I feel bad for Madcatter which has been a surprise and a fun team. Tombstone in the first round. Still, you never know.

Not sure I was watching the same show...


Duck! was there, but never shown in the battlebox?

MadCatter (3-0) is ranked 12th? Confused

Ribbot was the surprise for me. I thought Beta was a up and comer with that sledge hammer he swings.

I pull for some because they look to be the best bot in the bout, sometimes I like the team and think they have a chance. So far all my guys have lost. Mad

I think that Ray is less focused on himself but on the next generation of Builders... and I can't fault him for that.
