Judges going to claim Pulsar was immobilized too long and will give it to Gabriel.

I think in terms of robots this was the worst episode.

So glad Gabriel didn't win that. It's awful.

I hope they let Thor back in, it should have won its heat really.

I was wondering where they'd pick the wild card from. Behemoth supremacy.

I'd be okay with Thor too, though. They were pretty good.

Just not Dantomkia :dread:

Gabriel's an interestingly designed robot though and it seems a lot tougher than you'd expect, it'll get utterly destroyed in the final as there's some big hitters involved.

Pulsar won't last long either, it reminds me of Mortis and Razer in that its an impressive looking and powerful machine that suffers from being ridiculously unreliable.

Another enjoyable episode.

I felt very sorry for Ironside though. They caused the damage that knocked Pulsar out in round 1. They destroyed Chompalot to the extent that it should never have entered the league setup, essentially handing Gabriel a free 3 points and simultaneously ensuring that Pulsar did not have to fight Gabriel in the league.

On reflection, this is a pretty impressive final. Expect Pulsar to drop out in this first heat.

Not a great showing from Thor there, but easily better than Pulsar.

Massive disappointment if Carbide doesn't win at this stage.
