I vote Red Zone. He has a great anti-spinner plow and pretty decent armor. RATR on the other hand looks like a rather frail design, and has a rather extreme weapon to armor disparity. Even if RATR managed to rip off the plow, Red Zone could offer up the lifter as a something non-vital to ram with. All that said, I don't see RATR surviving the fight.

It sucks going 0-5. You lose all 4 of your bot fights for the week and you also lose at life.

I have to disagree. RATR is similar to Extreme Gyration, and its weapon should survive at least 3 hits.

Umm...just so you know, Extreme Gyration barely survives his matches :P Besides, if Rosie can only survive three hits, then he's in trouble.

And yet he still does serious damage to opponents.

Sure, Rosie would probably beat Red Zone up, but if/when that weapon goes out, Rosie is completely screwed.

Still, it'll probably screw up Red Zone's lifter and damage its drive before that happens.

Only if Chris was dumb enough to attack Rosie with the lifter while he was spinning. More than likely he would use the plow, that thing can eat damage up without Chris really having to worry about it.

True, but remember: This is a poll, so Chris couldn't give tactics.

Ah. Still, I think Rosie has the advantage, and I hope to see her in whatever the next ARC series is, to test out Mineswept Away...

Unless he comes back, G-Paul doesn't compete anymore.

I also see Red Zone getting battered, but surviving long enough for RATR's weapon to go out, at which point it's helpless.

Red Zone for the win. That spinner could get rattled while it's spinning, which would hurt its effectiveness.
