So much like Mr. Diotoir the Son of Nemesis, This past weekend (at time of writing this exact sentence) I was also at Cheltenham. Unlike Mr. Diotoir the Son of Nemesis, I was not there for a single part of the weekend. But for the whole show. And not in the audience either. Due to doing a favour for John Findlay a few weeks before I was allowed to go, backstage for the whole thing, and spend my weekends in the pits. So before I talk about anything else, I do want to give an absolutely huge thank you to everyone involved in this, John Findlay himself, and others.
Now while I did talk with a few roboteers, I didn't learn anything ground-breaking about a robot's run during reboot series so if you're Toast wondering just how much Gabriel's enta…Read more >
It's a fun question to think of isn't it, especially in a show like Robot Wars, mainly because there are so many things that, if they happened differently, things could be very different.
And I can't get enough of them! So what I'll be doing here is putting my own thoughts on "what if" scenarios from the series history, from series 1 to series 10. However... I'm letting you lot choose the scenarios I cover, for the series that the scenario would follow and possibly the one after, with any seeding changes that could occur. So with that, I'll give you all one to start us off, and then tell me what you want to see me cover afterwards!

So now everything was different. Dominator 2 was a champion now, defeating the champion which was there in real life and setting the course of robot wars history into a very different direction. So really the only possible thing to do was really pull my finger out and really make this my own, make this our own. So I decided to give it all a name. That name, was Reddit’s Robot Wars. Nice and simple. But I couldn’t do Series 5 yet, I had to get Extreme out the way. And at this point it was the perfect time to show how I was doing this now. 15 episodes (An episode will be uploaded here every 2 or 3 days) with my own spin on tournaments which will be explained when a tournament begins. But for now, let’s see how things got on, in Reddit’s Robot W…Read more >
So the third wars on Reddit was finished, Chaos 2 remained the champion and we at least had a new world Champion in the shape of Mortis. But it was pretty popular and people were silently clamouring for more. So I decided, Why not keep going? I enjoyed it and it was fun to let other people say how a series would go. So I continued into Series 4. To make it truly random, I didn't have any seedings. This would be a decision I would later regret. But how did things go? Did we get Chaos 2 and Pussycat in the same heat? Let's find out.
Plunderbird 4 VS Knightmare VS 101 Why is Plunderbird in all of the first fights of these series? Still I can imagine the series opening up with the Plunderbird song instead of the main theme. That would be kin…Read more >
Well hello Wiki, it's good to finally be part of this, and with my first post here, I'm introducing a bit of cross-internet Robot Wars fandom stuff.
See on the Robot Wars subreddit, I needed to think of something to bring to it. Before I had discovered this side of the wiki, I didn't really have anything to go on in terms of "Alternate series" so I decided to make one! I randomized all the competitors in the third wars and pitted them against eachother... For the Robot Wars Subreddit to vote on. So how did it go? What are my thoughts on each battle? Well let's see.
In the third wars, there were no seeds and no bot replacements. Just like the actual Third wars but with much more stupid semi-finalists and some of the worst heats you will ever …Read more >
