#Apocalypse was aggressive in the first half but as the pro-Iron-Awe arguments have already suggested, Apocalypse is densely packed, quite unreliable in terms of overheating. I feel like Iron-Awe's flipper problems are too easy of a write off and instead we must remember it was rather sturdy and able to stay alive...besides a wedge is still a wedge it can get underneath and potentially ram Apocalypse (slamming it against a wall?)

Revision as of 15:05, April 2, 2018

Forums: Index > Audited Series 10 > Audited Series 10 - Heat 6


Tough as Nails became our second unseeded Grand Finalist last week, as Concussion were forced into the rumble. This week, Thor will try to prove that axes still are the best. They've got some other popular teams to get past first, so lets crack on with the action.


Round 1

Please start your vote with your result in bold, as shown here: 1: First, 2: Second, 3: Third.

Thor (6) vs Iron-Awe 6 vs Track-tion

Thor Iron-Awe 6 Track-tion
Thor 10
Iron-awe 6 10
Track-tion
Votes
  1. 1: Thor, 2: Iron-Awe 6, 3: Track-tion. Iron-Awe without the flipper was so sad to see, but the wedge can do some good here. Thor might not be able to get under it at the front, allowing Iron-Awe to push back. Track-tion isn't much of an issue here, Thor can kill it quickly enough. By the end of the battle though, Thor's aggression with the axe will take sway with the judges and send the result to Jason. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:22, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  2. 1: Thor, 2: Iron-Awe 6, 3: Track-tion. Unpopular opinion: Based only on its Rumble performance, I am going to argue that Track-tion... was the least competitive robot in the main competition. I am dead serious. I respect its team, but I cannot see it winning any battles due to it generally being one of the slowest machines in the modern era. Although Iron-Awe 6 will lack its flipper (throughout the entire series I should add), it can at the very least dodge Thor's attacks for a while. Track-tion cannot, and I highly doubt that its tracks and internals will survive the relentless pounding of the axe for too long. Iron-Awe 6 will survive, but Thor will dominate this without any trouble. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 08:43, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  3. 1: Thor, 2: Iron Awe 6, 3: Track-tion. Thor is essentially fighting two weaponless boxes. Iron Awe at least has a decent wedge. CrashBash (talk) 14:40, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  4. 1. Thor, 2. Iron-Awe 6, 3. Track-tion. Thor to avoid to potential threat, and beat down Track-tion. Then the fight will be controlled from there. Nweston8 (talk) 15:52, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  5. 1. Thor, 2. Iron-Awe 6, 3. Track-tion. The pupils of Collingwood School will learn a few vital lessons here, as Track-tion takes a thorough pounding and shoving from each of its experienced opponents. The tracks and polycarbonate top panels will not survive long against Thor's axe blows, that's for sure. As for Iron-Awe 6, it has the potential to exploit Thor's ground clearance through its profile alone, but the problems it had getting the flipper to function in the real Series 10 will cost it dear. Thor to take the Judges' decision, or possibly KO Iron-Awe 6 with an exceptionally powerful blow. VulcansHowl 16:21, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  6. 1: Thor, 2: Iron Awe, 3: Track-tion. Even if Iron Awe's weapon doesn't work, it should still be able to outperform Track-tion to secure the superior play-off berth. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:54, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  7. 1st, Thor. 2nd, Iron-Awe 6. 3rd, Track-tion. With a working flipper, Iron-Awe 6 would romp this, it comfortably defeated Thor at Mechatrons at the start of this year. Without the weapon, Thor has the freedom to dominate, with only Track-tion being in danger of becoming immobile. TOAST 22:22, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  8. 1: Thor, 2: Iron Awe 6, 3: Track-tion: Nothing else I can add to deviate from what others have said. BizarroKing (talk) 22:29, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  9. 1: Thor, 2: Iron Awe 6, 3: Track-tion - Nothing to add really, Iron Awe 6 is less vulnerable to overhead attacks than Track-tion's polycarbonate so it outlasts it. Combatwombat555 (talk) 21:19, April 1, 2018 (UTC)

Votes
  1. 1: Behemoth, 2: Apocalypse, 3: Vulture. No, your eyes don't deceive you. This is a picture of Series 9 Behemoth. I didn't want to use the Series 10 pictures, as they all contained the axe that was never used. Anyway, Behemoth will be the dominant robots here, and I can see Vulture being ever so slightly easier to KO that Apocalypse. Also, Apocalypse's weapon is slightly more effective anyway. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:22, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  2. 1: Behemoth, 2: Vulture, 3: Apocalypse. Can Vulture self-right? I am not sure, but I am going to give it the benefit of the doubt for now. To be honest, Vulture's spinner did cause some minor damage to Terrorhurtz's axe, so it could be rather effective against Apocalypse too. Not to mention, Apocalypse was never the most reliable of robots during the series, and I can see Behemoth's pushs and lifts eventually taking out the machine's internals. Vulture will be eventually dealt with by Behemoth, even if it does go to a Judges' decision. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 08:43, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  3. 1. Behemoth, 2. Vulture, 3. Apocalypse. Vulture shouldn't lose drive randomly now it's not against an axe. Its wedge is good too, whereas Apocalypse can be turned over consistently, and will likely burn up. Nweston8 (talk) 15:53, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
    Erm, Vulture is fighting against Apocalypse, which has an axe. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:21, April 1, 2018 (UTC)
    Which, to be fair to Nweston, didn't work at all in its initial Group Battle. Vulture's drive is safe... for now! VulcansHowl 09:27, April 1, 2018 (UTC)
  4. 1. Behemoth, 2. Vulture, 3. Apocalypse. Given the extent of Apocalypse's technical issues in its real-life heat, it will only take repeated flips and shoves from Behemoth to break one or more of its drive chains, and to leave Team Asgard's machine a sitting duck. Vulture should fare better with its floor-hugging wedge and arm-mounted spinner (which did manage to self-right against Bucky), but I can't see it being able to deliver enough damage to overhaul Behemoth's advantage. Regardless of what happens to Vulture, Behemoth has the aggression and control to take this one comfortably. VulcansHowl 16:21, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  5. 1: Behemoth, 2: Apocalypse, 3: Vulture. Something tells me Behemoth will see Vulture as more of a threat and target it first, before inevitably dealing with Apocalypse as well. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:56, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  6. 1st, Behemoth. 2nd, Vulture. 3rd, Apocalypse. Vulture can indeed self-right, and Apocalypse is highly unlikely to survive a full fight due to it's crowded internals. If the axe doesn't work, as was the case in it's real Group Battle, Behemoth can defeat it in one flip before playing with Vulture for the remainder of the match. TOAST 22:24, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  7. 1: Behemoth, 2: Vulture, 3: Apocalypse: Again a case of who goes out first, my money tells me the weaker link is Apocalypse as Vulture is able to self-right so even if it does get flipped (which i'm sure it inevitably will), Apocalypse is more likely to break down. BizarroKing (talk) 22:29, March 31, 2018 (UTC)
  8. 1: Behemoth, 2: Vulture, 3: Apocalypse - Apocalypse didn't have its axe in the melee, so unless Behemoth decides to keep righting it it's done for. Vulture can self-right so it outlasts Apocalypse but it's not really a threat to Behemoth. Combatwombat555 (talk) 21:23, April 1, 2018 (UTC)
1st: Behemoth, 2nd: Vulture, 3rd: Apocalypse

Iron-Awe 6 vs Apocalypse

Apocalypse
Votes for Iron-Awe 6
  1. Having rewatched its real-life Redemption battle again, it seemed to me like Apocalypse's drive chain broke before it was slammed into the gate by Sabretooth, and after a light push, too. Iron-Awe 6, regardless of the issues surrounding its flipper, is more nimble and still has a reasonably effective wedge at its disposal, which can slip underneath Apocalypse's sides and shove it around to facilitate the chain's breakage. This will undo all of Apocalypse's hard work, as it's sure to land a lot of axe blows in before the chain gives way, and result in it being fed to the House Robots or pitted. VulcansHowl 09:21, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
  2. Even if we do assume that Apocalypse was immobilised after the slam into the arena wall, it still only lasted 1 minute and 48 seconds. A slipped drive chain was not the full story - Apocalypse was also burning up in its second fight out of two. As I mention in pretty much every appearance of Apocalypse, this was no fluke. The robot is so densely packed that it would basically overheat in any fight that goes the distance, and Apocalypse is not likely to KO very many robots in the competition. Iron-Awe 6 has already won a real battle purely on the grounds of not dying, and unfortunately I have to vote that way again. TOAST 10:12, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
  3. Apocalypse was aggressive in the first half but as the pro-Iron-Awe arguments have already suggested, Apocalypse is densely packed, quite unreliable in terms of overheating. I feel like Iron-Awe's flipper problems are too easy of a write off and instead we must remember it was rather sturdy and able to stay alive...besides a wedge is still a wedge it can get underneath and potentially ram Apocalypse (slamming it against a wall?)

Iron-Awe's wedge won't allow Apocalypse to be pushed quite as well into the wall, so I don't see it being immobilised in the same way. Apocalypse to survive the distance, and Iron-Awe being unable to flip will not help one bit in the judges eyes. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:23, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
  2. I will go for Apocalypse as well. Providing that a malfuction does not occur, I can easily see it outpushing the weaponless Iron-Awe 6. Plus, that axe was not that bad, so I could see it scoring highly on damage too. Not much Iron-Awe 6 can do here, ultimately. That said, when the time comes to do Ragnabot 3 (years away I am predicting), I wonder if Iron-Awe 6 will still be weaponless throughout its battles? SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 08:45, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
    I would like Ragnabot 3 to be sooner than that, although I would treat it as a weaponless wedge in all of those fights. It's a lot of fun that way, even without a wedge, it's still a modern HARDOX wedge fighting retro machines. TOAST 10:12, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
  3. An alternate Series 10 with half the fights we suffered through in reality is fine by me. Jim pretty much summed up my case. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 09:12, April 2, 2018 (UTC)

Votes for Vulture
  1. The battle we never saw. Vulture was a class above and will make sure Track-tion (which won't be borrowing the wedge) is torn apart with the axe/saw/thingummy. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:23, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
  2. As I mentioned previously, Track-tion is too slow to really defend itself properly from most opponents. Vulture will take full advantage of this, using its disc to eventually tear up one of the tracks and easily win this battle. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 08:45, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
  3. Vulture's spinner is more than capable of slicing Track-tion's tracks, leaving the ex-reconnaissance robot with zero traction and zero chances to respond. VulcansHowl 08:56, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
  4. So my initial prediction at filming that Vulture would make a Heat Final was off, but at least I wasn't disproven on its ability to defeat Track-tion in a head-to-head battle. Now that the fight happens for real, it's a comfortable win. TOAST 10:13, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
  5. Track-tion (why is it called that?!) is slow...very slow and doesn't offer much offensive tehrefore easy win for Vulture.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 12:05, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
  6. So, random thought...how well would Vulture have done in the rumble? CrashBash (talk) 13:09, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
    More on that in this heat's play-off. TOAST 13:22, April 2, 2018 (UTC)
