Forums: Index > A Fantasy Audited War 3 > A Fantasy Audited War 3 Semi-Final 2

Welcome to the second semi-final of A Fantasy Audited War 3! Whereas the first semi-final contained a large number of former semi-finalists and grand-finalists, this semi-final contains only one previous semi-finalist of A Fantasy Audited War 2, Ripper. In fact, everyone else failed to make the heat final last series, so meaning that the semi-final will essentially become a 'land of opportunity' for many of them to reach the grand final and redeem themselves after a poor showing last time round. Who will succeed? The only way to find out is to LET THE WARS BEGIN!

Barber-Ous 2'n a Bit vs GBH 2

Votes for Barber-Ous 2'n a Bit
  1. To be honest, I think I can sum up my opinion with one question: What can GBH 2 actually do? Its primary weapon, a rear lifting wedge, is meant to gently topple opponents rather than throwing machines into the air. That will not work against Barber-Ous 2'n a Bit due to its invertible and slippery nature. Plus, GBH 2's pushing power was OK, but not the level needed to control the spinner's movements. In addition, GBH 2's front flipper will merely self-right the machine, once again being unable to do anything to the demon barber. Then, one has to consider Barber-Ous 2'n a Bit's drum's power, which will certainly cause significant damage to its opponent; heck, if The Alien caused that much damage to GBH 2, I dread to think of the damage that the demon barber can inflict to its opponent's sides. Therefore, when also considering that Barber-Ous 2'n a Bit only has to survive three minutes instead of five, it will easily take out GBH 2, winning on a judges' decision on all accounts, or if it can cause serious damage to GBH 2's flippers, a potential knockout if it is flipped and thus unable to self-right.

  2. We saw that The Alien's little thing was able to topple GBH 2 in one hit, imagine a full body drum spinner...Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 08:25, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  3. I really feel like Barber-Ous will have a breakdown in one of its four fights so far, but that wouldn't be a fair way to end SpaceManiac888's Magical Mystery Run for his second-favourite machine. This has now exceeded Ruf Ruf Dougal's Ragnabot 2 success for levels of "host's favourite robot advances unusually far into the bracket", with the fifth round on the horizon... TOAST 09:38, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
    Third favourite, as Firestorm and Kat 3 are loved more by me, both of whom actually went out in round one :(. I fear that this might be the peak for Barber-Ous, however, although there might be one robot that I can see it beating... but will others agree? SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:40, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  4. We had the Razer roulette in Audited Series 2, could we have one for Barber-Ous? Regardless, GBH2 is just a wedge and a box with weapons that will do nothing here. This may be a big mess. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:54, September 6, 2018 (UTC)

Diotoir vs Corkscrew

Diotoir Corkscrew
Diotoir 10
Votes for Diotoir
  1. I think this is quite straightforwardly Diotoir's win. In a head-to-head contact, Diotoir can only take damage to its disc, whereas Corkscrew's main body is being targeted, and quite likely overturned due to the number of lips on Corkscrew that vertical spinners can get under. It's not like Diotoir's wheels are UN-protected completely, Corkscrew will still have to work in order to get past a HARDOX shield. I find it kind of strange that a retro robot with a 1-3 combat record is so far ahead of a moder robot which, in another form, has a 4-0 record... TOAST 10:03, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  2. If I voted for S3 to beat Corkscrew, I'm sure going to vote for Diotoir Machina for the exact same reason. Beginning to think Corkscrew may have outstayed its welcome. Having that spinner is all well and good until you realise that just a few hits could KO the entire robot. CrashBash (talk) 10:10, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  3. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I completely agree with Toast. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 11:02, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
Votes for Corkscrew
  1. Think I will go for Corkscrew's third surprise in a row. Indeed, Diotoir's spinner, like S3's, may be powerful but lacks the range unlike Corkscrew's full-body spinner. This may enable Corkscrew to simply dodge it and attack the wheels. Also like S3, Diotoir's wheels are only slightly protected by wheel guards, meaning that a few blows from Corkscrew should generally be enough to tear said guards apart. And after the wheels are exposed, they are surely going to be shredded, allowing Corkscrew to win by knockout. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 08:12, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  2. Can't really falter this, Corkscrew's spinner's really aggressive and damaging, sure nowadays and against Diotoir that spinner won't actually do anything meaningful maybe the odd scratch and dent but regardless I the spinner can still hit the "nose" of Diotoir, disabling the chain beltand possibly bending the nose all out of shape. The fur will fly as well and obviously the tires are exposed so...Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 08:46, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  3. Diotoir's only hope is the Corkscrew gets flipped if the weapons collide. However, it was still quite well driven and aggressive, and shoul be able to get around to Diotoir's exposed wheels to disable them. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:57, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  4. Diotoir's place here is sketchy give how Behemoth should've beaten it in round 2, Corkscrew has the better weaponry so will KO Diotoir. Sam (BAZINGA) 12:30, September 6, 2018 (UTC)

Scorpion vs Mute

Scorpion Mute
Mute S7
Votes for Scorpion
  1. Really depends on how well Scorpion can effectively use its disc against Mute. Mute does have strong armour, but I believe that unlike Dantomkia, it will be unable to prevent Scorpion from utilising its disc to full potential, because it will only succeed in flipping Scorpion a few times, rather than consecutively, as I am not sure that its flipper is the right design needed to control its opponent's movements. This may prove costly, because I can see Scorpion attacking the sides, causing notable gashes on the armour of its opponent, like it did against Dantomkia. As I see it being more likely to land hits against Mute when compared to Dantomkia, as it is generally less likely to be flipped around, I am sure it will win on damage and control. In terms of aggression, I believe Scorpion's attacks will narrowly outweigh Mute's flips, swaying the judges to its side. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 08:12, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
Votes for Mute
  1. My issue is that I don't think Scorpion's blade is as good as everyone says it is. I feel the incident at the Live Events is being seen as an example, but considering it had upgrades and the Live Event scene at the time had little to no blade, of course even the smallest or bluntest of weapons would be "powerful". Another issue is that Scorpion has a ground clearance that can be exploited, meaning it is likely to be chucked about. I honestly think Scorpion's only chance is for Mute to break down, throw itself like flea and lose points as a result and or drive into a hazard and die. Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 08:31, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  2. Scorpion fought Dantomkia and was wholly outclassed. Mute is nearly on Dantomkia's level and will still find it possible to outclass it. The front flipper will avoid the tiny killzone at the back and merely keep turning Scorpion over, eventually propping it up on the wall. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:58, September 6, 2018 (UTC)

General Chompsalot 2 vs Ripper

Votes for General Chompsalot 2 Votes for Ripper
  1. Unlike with Hydra or St. Agro, Ripper has a very low ground clearance all round, meaning that a grab on the sides is virtually impossible for General Chompsalot 2's jaw to achieve. Because of this, the American machine in my opinion has lost this battle, because aside from a few light pushes, it can do almost nothing to Ripper. Ripper, by contrast, will be happy simply flipping its opponent across the arena, exploiting the ground clearance time after time. Providing both robots survive to the end, the Series 7 machine will easily win a judges' decision on all accounts. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 08:12, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  2. Flip here and there, same reasons as before.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 08:26, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  3. Ripper has a broad flipper and nothing really exposed for Chompsie to grab hold of. Ripper likes to get battles over and done with quick, so I can see it scoring a pretty quick OotA to be honest. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:59, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
  4. This is a nightmare draw for General Chompsalot 2. I'm happy to see them get this far, but unless Ripper loses drive on one side randomly, the Commander of Biting is completely finished. TOAST 10:05, September 6, 2018 (UTC)
