Revision as of 02:30, January 14, 2014

Slippery Strana was a lightweight robot entered into the Lightweight Championship of Series 2 of Robot Wars. It won the battle despite attacking the other competitors very little. It returned for Series 3 but an accident behind the scenes caused the lightweight competition to be cancelled.

The robot was given its name for two reasons. The "Slippery" came about because of the speeds which the prototype of the robot could achieve. The "Strana" was a combination of the words "strawberry" and "banana", chosen because the team wanted to give the robot a surreal name.[1]

Robot History

Series 2

Slippery Strana was up against Rosebud, Damacles, Shadow Fiend and Spartacus in the Lightweight Championship. After joining in an early melee, Slippery Strana lost drive on one side. The House Robots therefore moved in for the kill. After receiving punishment from Matilda and Shunt, the wheel started working again and Slippery Strana attempted to attack Matilda. When Dead Metal came over for a look, it scampered back to join the other robots. Spartacus and another lightweight ganged up on it though, and pushed it back into the PPZ, Spartacus causing some damage. Cease was then called with all of the robots still active.

"All 5 robots obediently stopped, and we waited patiently for a judge's decision. And we waited some more. And some more. Then, to help the judges finalise their scoring, the 'voice from above' asked all roboteers to move around the arena a little. Charlie took this opportunity to spin another pirouette and to zip a couple of times - very visibly - across the arena. One of our competitors seemed to take offence at this and Charlie found himself in a dangerous post-battle push-and-shove, which mercifully didn't last long."
