Series 5Edit

Like in Series 4, winning a qualifier for Series 5 did not guarantee qualification for the series. Additionally, some robots would battle robots that were seeded for Series 5, which would qualify no matter whether they won or lost the qualifier.

At many of the qualifiers, robots were put into groups of four. There would be two one-on-one first round battles, and the winners would fight each other, with the winner of that battle automatically qualifying for The Fifth Wars.
