BattleBots Season 2 Prediction Game

Just seen episode 3 (4) on YT. Yeti vs Lucky was bananas, shame it ended so early. Minotaur vs Blacksmith was great, with enough damage to make up for slow start. Bronco's match was more or less a simple repeat of its original match, though what the bull does to the drone and Chrome Fly is hilarious. Witch Doctor/Shaman vs Red Devil ends with Chomp and Tento as the only true female made robots left (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKTbKwEoXl4).

An ARC game night over Discord would actually be pretty cool.

Badnik would ok if I put a brief summary of the matches on here? It would help those that can't see the episodes (and having to deal with the wait) and it could provide a basis for the BB wiki.

(plz play my RW prediction game)

Tombstone, Warhead, Poison Arrow, and Razorback won their fights last night.

2 for 2 this time. I'm regretting my last minute loss of faith in Poison Arrow... should've left it alone, but it had such a hard time beating a plastic pool toy I couldn't help but think it would lose, despite its pedigree. Oh well.

Warhead's fight was hyped up into the stratosphere, and I feel like it didn't live up to the hype. I expected an explosion or a tense but close match or something like that, and... nah. It was over in one hit. CC didn't do anything except sit there and catch fire. Warhead put on a good show. I expect memes and gifs of it sliding across the floor on its head to flood facebook and reddit.

Tombstone vs Escape Velocity - the legends are true. <del>Kane Hodder</del> Jason Voorhees has driven the robot. This would explain his weirdness in the virtual cabin in Summer Camp.

Poison Arrow vs S.O.W. - needs dramatic music. and sad music.

Complete Control vs Warhead - I was hoping for missiles and bombs and shit, but fire works.

Ghost Raptor vs Razorback - this can be summarized as two memes - 1) Chuck saying about how great his weapon is and then the image changes to a little chip from RB falling off/out from the jaws and then a loud fuck is heard. 2) Chuck saying that RB has larger weak points than S.O.W. and then we see RB's ninja move on GR followed by something from Family Guy.

I wonder how this affects the bracket... (plz play my rw prediction game, you have until 6pm uk time tomorrow)

I understand Badnik, I have bad internet as well. One thing I've noticed is that when the host is late, the contestants have a tendencies to reveal the answers. Would that be appropriate to reveal the winners/how the bracket would look now, Badnik?

So I got 6 right out of... 16 in the round of 32... I might as well just guess the opposite of what I think and I'll do better.

16 bots become 8.

Tombstone vs Brutus - for maximum salt potential
Nightmare vs Beta - After watching Nightmare vs Icewave, Nightmare just seems really flimsy.
BiteForce vs Chomp - fuck Chomp
Mega Tento vs Yeti - Fuck off Lisa Winters
Bronco vs Razorback - B R O N C O B O Y S
Minotaur vs Warhead - I wonder if Minotaur will rip off one of those wings
Red Devil vs Bombshell - Assuming Bombshell doesn't use its axe
Poison Arrow vs Hypershock - Could go either way.
