ariadne1312:13am: hello?
is there anyone still here?

anddoes anyone else think that robot wars started to go down hill when phillipa left?

and what ever happened to the maze challenge at the beginning of the first series? i thought that was way better because you didn't get the annoying fight of 'oh its not moving..has it broken down...yes is has...' because the ones that made it further were generally better.

and panic attack was fab - and im not just saying that because i'm welsh either...

First post since August 29th 2003. :)

Anyone saw the match today? It was crazy! I LOVE the fast blade spinning... it knocks the robot outta of the arena!

admiralmemo10:26am: I just re-watched my favorite moment from Robot Wars
In the 5th Wars Heat H Semi-Finals, when Wheely Big Cheese fought Axe Awe, it flipped it out of the arena from halfway across the arena! That was a great flying robot! Whee!

tsutton8:22pm: BBC Choice today
Just watched Robot Wars on BBC Choice today - UK vs Germany.

It ended with a draw and I think it's unfair. I think they should have played again!

Any comments on this?

structx9:14pm: forgot to mention it: last friday i saw the kickoff of the 6th wars...
i liked the new format (first 2 times 4 and then one on one)
not sure about the new houserobots though, and the leather jackets are just awfull!
let me guess: razer champion again?

liquidcrystal10:53pm: Traitors!

As you may be able to tell by the name of the website, they aren't about to say something good about robot wars, but I have not laughed so much in a long time.

The sad thing is, everything in the article is true, and all of the bits of the show they take the piss out of are why robot wars fans love it so much.

Happy reading, and if you're seriously offended by it...seek help. Now.

structx6:39pm: more extreme
"smell the oil, smell the fire, smell the steam...
smells like robot wars extreme!"
-- graig

saw some more extreme, anihilator semi finals, where firestorm 3 flipped over shunt (had to happen soorer or later) and sir killalot caught fire massively. yikes!

i don't know how old this episode is, but it not very recent, right?

structx11:23pm: robot wars usericons?
google coughed up 3 img you could use as a community usericon perhaps spixxie?
feel free to twitch them a bit of course, as i didn't do make myself anyway ;-)

Current Mood: gloomy
structx10:31pm: hooray!
BBC2 does broadcast the 5th wars!
should have thought of that sooner to use a belgian tv site to check it. it's on friday evening, and a rerun late at night. plus, a belgian channel also shows old wars on sunday afternoon. damn, why was i so stupid all this time?

and hmm, two posts in two days, this might become a busy community :-D

structx11:44pm: saw another robot wars extreme
  • where tornado snitched the challenge belt from behemoth (yikes, grrreat battle!)
  • there actually was a belgian contestant, philliper, who tried to take on chaos2 together with a dutch bot, alien destructor... whaaaw that mighty flipper of chaos2 launched philipper with the full 99.9 kgs way up in the air, a deserved winner!
  • there also was a very short and disappointing tag, a stupid mayhem and a boring vengance match... but next time there's the annihilator, anxious to see what that gives.

    reynardo2:01am: Australian Contest!
    Yippee! Greetings - I'm Gillian and I'm a student at the University of Western Sydney, in the Robotics (Mechatronics) area.

    I've been asked to set up Robot Wars here for next year. .. well.. OK.. I volunteered. Silly me. But anyway, that's why I've joined this commmunity and why I'm feeling like I've maybe taken on a bit too much.
