kaputtes Video ? Nur 40 min. statt sonst über eine Stunde ?
Extrem positiv überrascht hat mich Shatter und sein Kampf, das war mMn der beste Kampf des Abends und hat gezeigt, was der Hammer anrichten kann.
What a rubbish way to have lost - very frustrating. However Monsoon - BattleBot fought with honour and British decency.
We all knew that we weren’t the favourites for the fight but we would have much rather had a real brawl!
We had some serious receiver issues that meant we were unable to self right; in the test box it all worked fine but in the arena it all changed. Intermittent axe control - fortunately the drive was a separate receiver and worked well.
Despite this we stripped down the whole electronic control system and fitted new; gearing up ready to fight our Norse sister in arms this Friday - Valkyrie!
Check out these damage pics from our fight with Ribbot - BattleBot!
Ribbot hit us multiple times in the front, tearing off the wedglets, breaking through the front armour, and crushing the main batteries.
Stay tuned to see End Game repaired and back in business!
Here comes match #3: The long anticipated fight vs Blacksmith - Battlebot! This match was actually scheduled for the 2018 Fight Nights but was delayed when some opponents were reshuffled. Both bots are vastly upgraded from last year and bring more power, tenacity, and flame into the BattleBox! This will be an absolute brawl!
As described previously, the team unanimously decided to go with the new momentum blade for this match; we are equipping the forks and less auxiliary armor so we had the weight to support a larger offensive weapon. However since this weapon had never been tested before, so we decided to run at most 40% speed on the blade. The idea was to increase its chance at reliability in the match by running it weaker in case it did actually have self-destructive capabilities at higher power.
Meanwhile, Blacksmith donned it's tough AR500 top panels and welded some extra bits on top to slow us down. In the front portions where Quantum had pierced, Blacksmith now had ~1/4" in thickness of AR steel plus air; we did not expect the low-power momentum blade to pierce or cut their tops, but at least we can test our weapon against the most durable bot in the competition!
