Re: BattleBots Season 2

To avoid being the bad guy again, this heads up is your 3 weeks warning.

The season will begin in earnest Thursday, June 23rd.

That was an absolutely incredible episode. SO MUCH ACTION. Loved every minute of it.
Epic fights.

Hopefully more people tune in.

Ratings were dismal. http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...-june-23-2016/

It was definitely an honor to fight Bronco (I was a member of Team Blacksmith) in the first round. They demonstrate the theory that with enough force, any robot can fly!

Re: BattleBots Season 2

In the intro video for Rotator, did the earlier robot(s) of his look like FRC robots? (telling from the large, red alliance light on the robot)

Re: BattleBots Season 2

Do they really need to announce "It's robot fightin' time!" and show the audience before every...single...match? I feel like there is a ton of wasted air time that could be replaced with at least another match.

I disagree.

It's more like two tons of wasted air time.

Maybe you and I are only on the edges of their target audience?

It's like 30s per match tops. That doesn't come close to adding up to enough time to add another match.

It feels like wasted time because you're a hardcore viewer but they need that kind of stuff for the average viewer. It also builds up the fight a little bit.

The pacing and editing this year is SO much better than last year so far.

Re: BattleBots Season 2

Can't believe Ghost Raptor got the wild card over Disco Inferno. Ghost Raptor fared about as well as a plastic lawn chair in its fight.

Oh well... Awesome episode anyway.

Re: BattleBots Season 2

Now that the qualifiers are over, shall we have a little competition? Who has the best bracket on Chief Delphi. Brackets are here. My bracket is here. Let's see if anyone else has any contrary ideas...
