I lost...to the Watcher. I lost...to the Watcher of all robots. The loss to Something Vibrant was understandable and I have no problems with that, but I literally cannot understand how I, let alone ANYONE, could lose to what is without a doubt, the worst-designed SHW here. We all know that it's an absolute joke of a machine that shouldn't work by ANY logic whatsoever (It doesn't even have any blades or hammers on it of any kind, so how could he even damage me, let alone completely curbstomp me?) going by the design, yet there's someone out there who thinks it's funny to make me lose to it.

Honestly, it's more than just a standard complaint about a result, I'm officially calling bullshit on this particular result. And if need be, I can provide evidence on why it simply would not happen the way it did. I'd like to speak to whoever wrote it.

Granted they aren't the best looking ones on a translational thwack ever, but they are there.

Also the writer seemed to make a point that your decision to use the forks was a rather poor one, and from an outsiders perspective I concur with that assessment. Using them instead of the scoop seems rather baffling.

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

A few facts about the LI vs. The Watcher match

1. The Watcher is not a useless robot. It's not the most terrible effective robot (I think the teeth could be angled better), but it still spins with 13 speed (13 weapon power) and spins up pretty quickly. It can do some heavy damage.

2. I have NO idea why you didn't use the armored scoop, GF93. With the lifting spikes, you open yourself up to corner damage. The Watcher has a FIVE POINT advantage over your armor, and in corner damage terms that's flirting with one hit KO ability. He hits your lifting spikes on the side (because The Watcher is a wide robot) and trashes them in one hit.

3. You don't even compensate for this in your RP - you just say to box rush him head on, meaning that The Watcher is going to get a full on hit on the side of your lifting spikes. You could've at least tried to drive against his angle of rotation so he hits you head on, instead of side on.

4. The rear hinged wedge also has corners. For some reason you didn't make this flush with your side hinged wedges. I think with some smart driving you can deflect some of the hits, but your RP is just to be aggressive, and - again - The Watcher is a wide robot making it easy for him to score hits on the corners of your front or back.

Ultimately your biggest failing, imo, was not using the armored scoop. Again, I have no idea why you wouldn't use that, unless you'd happen to think The Watcher was absolutely incapable of causing damage. That's just not true. It's a 13 speed melty brain thwack - it hits with a weapon power of 13. He doesn't have hammers or blades but... uhh... did you maybe ignore the two grey spikes on either side (and presumably on the back)? Like two grey pyramids, dude... those would obviously hit you and cause damage.
