5 machines tegelijk is onverstandig.
In het geval van 35kg plus kan je nog 3 machines de box insturen die ieder een half kansje hebben tegen een heavy.
Wanneer deze machines sneller zijn dan hun tegenstander wordt het een kwestie van ontwijken en de flanken opzoeken.

Jammer dat America niet om de hoek ligt....

Op reddit was er nogal wat commentaar op de eerste uitzending, iemand besloot battlebots te mailen en ontving de onderstaande reactie.
Waarheid als een bus naar mijn idee.
This is Greg the co-founder of BB and EP of the show. I’ve been browsing this Subreddit (and all the comments elsewhere on social media. I’ve also forwarded the link to the other EPs—we’re listening.

There are many answers to the many comments on the thread, but the bottom line is this: We’re on ABC.

The show many hardcore fans seem to want would never be on ABC. It would more likely be on something like Discovery Science—and a small cable network would never have the budget to produce the show we want. Because we’re on ABC we can’t make a predominantly science / tech / engineering focused show. We would lose a huge chunk of the audience and never get a season 2.

We have to appeal to a wider range of people, hence the sports casters, tale of the tape, background packages, etc. Wall-2-wall robot fighting and would fatigue a majority of the audience and the show would fail. So we need to walk the line between fights and filler.

Do we have too much filler? I definitely think so. I’m actually agreeing with many of the comments I’m seeing. But I’m a tech/robot geek (probably like most of the Reddit posters). And we can’t make the show just for people like us, we need to go broader. In the end it’s all about balance.

That said, more tech and real robot analysis is coming. Bobak Ferdowsi is a real robot engineer and he will be doing breakdowns of many of the robots in future episodes. And we’re learning—more importantly our production partner Whalerock is learning, and season 2 will most likely incorporate many of the suggestions we’re reading from fans, and the balance will be a better mix of fights and relevant talk.

So please stick with us and keep the faith. At worst use the fast forward button on your DVR : ) (or better yet just Mute and get a snack)

And we did try and get Grant on the show—just didn’t work out this time around.

Email me anytime Greg

Misschien toch TAN 2 inschrijven dan? Ze willen graag originele ontwerpen.

Als we toch klagen.... Die 'roboteers ready' oid stem ding... Totaal onverstaanbaar wat ze nu eigenlijk zeggen alvorens de roboteer op de ready knop drukt.

Overigens, is er al een betere opname online? De youtube versie die hier gepost was, was niet 'full screen' te noemen...

En 2 mid weight bots plus 1 of 2 feathers (bonx boxen om onder spinners door te kruipen en mogelijk te wiggen bv) kan ook leuk zijn.
Maar vraag me dan wel af hoe de reglementen zijn op het gebruik van clusterbots. als ook het hebben van enkele vrijwel identieke bots om zo eigenlijk elke ronde een verse bot in te zetten...

Ja... Maar ik leek er geen updates over te ontvangen. en ook bij de nieuwe posts komt het achterkamertje nu ff niet naar voren, lijkt het...

Oh tof, Last Rites en Sewer Snake doen schijnbaar dus mee onder een andere naam (resp. Tombstone en Stinger).

Gaat nog interessant worden zo.

Justin en Ray hebben Tombstone specifiek voor Battlebots gebouwd. Last Rites staat gewoon in hun werkplaats klaar voor Robogames.
