Just watching episode 2 now. Not sure how true the "home-made"/"amateur fighting machines" speech is anymore, considering Carbide at least are backed by sponsorship from actual engineering companies.

They're not going to let Ant forget walking out, are they? :dread:

(Also, what happened to Sheryl with Carbide? #awkward)

Gabriel doing surprisingly well against Carbide :slol: I've always wondered how well the floppy wheels would do at absorbing an impact, and obviously it does quite well!

EDIT: Second match and the flipper's wrecked again. No expense spared on this arena. Eruption :datass:

Disappointing final, there :( Over in an instant.

Bucky the Mascot :slol:

Kid's team out almost instantly in the first match! Hope Rapid doesn't win :dread:

Apex takes one hit and the weapon stops working :fp: Devastating.

strawberry floating hell, that Apex destruction! This is why spinners are a bad idea :dread: Third episode, third time the arena's been trashed.

EDIT: Anyone else think Vulture threw that match to let the kids go through to the melee? :shifty:

This thread seems popular this series...

Team Nuts are back! Actually making it through their first match :o

EDIT: Nuts basically one-shot killed Androne! :slol: That's why you don't have exposed mechanisms :dread:

EDIT 2: :o :shock:

Bit of an oversight putting extra armour on that stops your machine running upside down :lol: :fp:
