The backstage parts are fascinating. The level of equipment they is impressive - from a brief look it seemed they had their own CNC machines!

Tormach is a sponsor and they bring a selection of CNC mills and lathes. Lincoln Electric is another sponsor and they bring quite an impressive welding set up I think.

Desperado was good, especially the final. The extra match should be fine to talk about without being spoilery. Deep Six in any more fights it has, if it doesn't get the first big hit in it's going to be toast. Way too jittery and unstable.

I caught up on the last few episodes of King of Bots series 1 (the Chinese competition) this weekend. The second series is a few episodes in, is it best to post them here along with the BB stuff?

We have only seen Breaker Box, P1 & Nelly just once. Seems strange some have been on 3 or 4 times and we have had the last chance desperado event for losing robots to qualify already.

Just looked on here, there are 9 robots that haven't even competed yet. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BattleBots_(season_9...

Aha, that explains my confusion. The Desperado episode was a belter. Many thanks!

Deep Six frightens me, and that is just when watching it on TV.

I loved the behind the scenes bit showing the sheer amount of damage that Cobalt had inflicted on Sub Zero. That doesn't normally come across on the screen unless it's one of those battles when one of the robots just gets split apart by its opponent.

Some of the hits in this one were brutal, like the kid in the white shirt on his mate/little brother hehe



Is Deep Six paying for the new floor though, after putting a hole through it? :P

I know it was only a thin section but seeing that titanium plate ripped like paper was impressive.

Good episode again. Main event was great. Now they've fed two robots that it had a good chance of smashing to Deep Six I hope it's next fight is against something really good.

The hole in the floor that Deep Six made



Battlebots posted some testing of a new floor a few weeks ago. Apart from all the little nicks and unevenness it had before, this is probably the main reason they need one now hehe

Yes that was impressive, ripped chunks out of the frame and made that wheel look like it came off a Lego model, yet you could see the weight when she picked it up.
