AMA with Teams DUCK! and Marvin today at 4pm PT over at reddit.com/r/battlebots ... See MoreSee Less
I love watching Duck fight, the design of him almost makes me think of a knight getting ready for a jousting tournament it's awesome
With Duck's durability, it'd make an awesome modern day Hazard.
My heroes! Duck! rocks and Hal and his family are too nice. Gotta love this group. Marvin is an up and comer!
Duck entertains us, inspires us and most importantly teaches us the joy of bot fighting.
!awesome! Hang tough !
Somebody on team duck needs to do 2 things. Pilot a minibot named goose, and wear a goose shirt.
It is one seriously durable bot. If they mounted a spinning blade on Duck, it'd be unbeatable. Maybe even give Tombstone a run for his money.
Most durable bot out there. Must agree though all-defense is not a winning strategy, except maybe in demolition derby. Of course, adding a weapon means more vulnerable bits to break . . . Still.
I don’t get why Hal’s team is never with him in the Battlebox. It bothers me.
I have yet to see anyone use a pneumatic punch using an air or hydrolic piston that punches out from the robot. Maybe duck could do something like that to have some sort of weapon. 🤷♂️🐥
Did Marvin have televised fights, I feel like I missed it!?
Will duck ever change his weapon to a spinner shaped like a ducks beak lol
get em next year Duck! 🦆🦆🦆
Everyone knows how to beat duck. Duck needs a weapon if they want to be competitive
Dead Duck now.
🚨Spoiler Alert🚨 Post match interview with Team Rail Gun Max. For more exclusive videos please become a BattleBots supporter ... See MoreSee Less
When I met this wonderful team that night, they apologized for losing. 😭 They’re so precious and nice. I wanted to be the one to apologize to them because I’m sure they were hurting more, but there they were, more concerned for me. Elaine and the boys are awesome, I can’t wait to see them again next year. 💕
Amazing fights last night
Rail Gun Max got screwed over in their last battle and should have already been in the tournament. Then you throw them in a three way battle with two teams that are better than most of the others I saw last night. Minotaur gets 7 fights to get in?
Those were some great fights last night !
Stand tall RGM, you should have qualified.
Where did Mammoth go? I only saw them in two matches and still want to see them battle Huge at some point (maybe next year) even though Huge would probably win.
Making only one match a 3-way bout was a mistake. It was unfair to the teams involved, particularly RGM in the end. If this had been a 1 on 1 like every other match, RGM would have won because they disabled the other bot. But instead Uppercut, who took almost no part in the bout, won because it didn’t participate and thus wasn’t damaged, and thus won by default. You owe the RGM team an apology for setting that up. They’ve got a great bot that’s going to keep getting better.
I'd like to see a Tombstone VS Blacksmith match.
Duck! and Hal will be back! Quackin’ and Attackin’!
Elaine Wu is a hottie
Hydra will get the giant nut this year
Railgun max is a dumb name and the dumb egg beater dumbness was dumb. Duck is dumb, too. Lets have a bot with no weapon. Dumb.
🚨 Spoiler Alert 🚨 Spinner on Spinner Violence. ⚙️🤖
More bots. More battles. Watch #BattleBots at 8p ET on Discovery and on Discovery GO. ... See MoreSee Less
Wow, the way Son Of Wyochi STAYS BALANCED with all that power it has when knocked in the air is extremely IMPRESSIVE!
This was a good Battle!
This great battle.😘
Entertaining episode!! So happy Mino in the top 16! 😊
That was a really satisfying end of the battle. 😁
For a moment, I thought SOW had bent its spinner shaft. Entertaining fight, but I missed the button-pushing sock puppet show.
Son of Whyachi is a scary spinner! Really has aged gracefully 🙂
All of these matches were spectacular! Can’t wait to watch the future matches.
Several really BIG hits last night! It was a great show!!!
Amazing fight, could have easily gone the other way. Every bot earned their placement imo.
Great battles all around this episode. Sad that Duck didn’t get through. Looking forward to the tournament. Go witch doctor!!
That was precision control of SOW by Luke. Really well driven. SOW will either kill its enemy or itself after the first hit or two--like most full body spinners. That said, it's certainly a lot more reliable than the shell spinners we've seen. Loved that bot since it was a shufflebot with meat hammers attached.
Great episode. Any of tonight's bot deserved top 16.
I was hoping valkyrie, rail gun max, hypershock, and rotator would win 🙁
Very nice match!
That was an epic battle. Yaaa sow. See ya next season copperhead
Spoiler, but totally worth watching!
What a battle and what an episode!!
Just a spinning motor on wheels Should not even considered as a bot Seriously no creativity at all in this thing.
Whyachi vs Tombstone would be a great playoff match
VIOLENT ENERGY!!! What a fight, and what a night! OH MY GOD!!!
Anyone else been pondering which top 8 bot you would’ve replaced with SoW, if it’d been up to you? 🤔
The energy transfer was INSANE!!!
Best season ever. Great episode!
I can't get over how good this episode was. Phenomenal!
Will Bales is so frikkin awesome! Love Hypershock and I love Huge! I was gonna be sad for the loser and excited for the winner! Either way!
I love Duck. See you next year.
That worked out pretty much exactly the way we thougt it would…
I’m glad Will Bales can lose and still have fun.
Will is a class act. Duck lost a tough match but they’re still one of my favs. Happy for Blacksmith. Finally got over the hump. Tonight was a great episode. Well done, Battlebots.
We’re proud of you Duck! and Hal! See ya next year!!!!
Keep the faith DUCK & BRONCO ! REALLY looking forward to seeing you two next season.. love you two .. congrats to the winners and bravo to all !
I've been watching BB since they were on the Comedy Channel and the matches this season are closer than ever. I do kinda miss the mis-matches they used to show back then.
BLACKSMITH! YEAH! Congrats Al, that was the right decision 👍
This year has had just enough destruction to make me happy. Thanks for broadcasting such an extended season!
That was so great when he took out the drone with the rake!
Great fights so far. Going to be a great postseason.
The Hypershock/huge fight should have been the main event. That just about killed me because I love them both
Thank god the cat is out of the bag, I can stop holding my tongue 😂
I love Will Bales and the Hypershock team! <3
So many great upsets this season. I've given up trying to predict the outcomes. Keep us guessing BattleBots.
We're going to need a bigger rake!
Kenny: "You're in the top 16!" Luke from Son of Whyachi:
My favorite thing about this sport is how nice everyone is to eachother, even when they lose
congrats winners! duck & hypershock, hope to see you back next year!
Great way to kick off the tournament 👍🏻 was happy to see blacksmith finally make it to the dance.
Watching now 😊 it's Huuuuuge!
Great attitude by Will Bales.
Bots break, bots bust and bots blow up (real good). And without Lincoln Electric, Tormach Inc. and Markforged they would never get put back together again. BotFans, please show you love to these fantastic sponsors without whom BattleBots does not exist! ... See MoreSee Less
100 internet points for those that get the blowed up real good reference 🤪
Thank you Lincoln Electric, Tormach Inc. and Markforged so much for sponsoring!!!! 💙❤️💚🧡
We could not repair and keep going with Lincoln Electric! Year after year, they are always 100% reliable, and always fun to hang out with too, thank you Lincoln team!
big thank you to the sponsors!!!!! this is my fav sport
I really wish that for those of us who buy the entire season on Amazon could get the bonus fights.
Love "Lock-Jaw's" WIFE'S BOOTS, so cool!
Simon Cordat je te conseille cette page, franchement c'est très drôle
Sawblaze should be fighting for a spot......
Hydra will get the giant nut this year
Thank you Lincoln Electric, Tormach Inc. and Markforged. Long live BattleBots!!
stop with the kissing Mr. and Mrs. Yeti
The top 8 have been selected, but the remaining 8 slots are up for grabs. Tonight it's WIN AND YOU'RE IN! For the first time in BattleBots history, the final 8 spots of the TOP 16 will be decided by a series of PLAY-IN matches. Those matches happen TONIGHT! 8pm (et) on Discovery. ... See MoreSee Less
I really like the way they're doing this. They're essentially expanding the playoffs an extra round and giving the top third of the bots a first round bye. For a playing field that is so large (68 bots), a tournament of just 16 is too small, that's only 23.5% of the field. As a reference, in the NFL, 12 out of 32 make it (37.5%), MLB 10/30, 33%, NHL 16/31 51.6%, NBA 16/30 53%.
Great picks. Can’t wait!
Wish Gruff was in!!! #imagruffgirl #teamgruff #ilovegruff
This is going to be awesome!
This is gonna be awesome! I can’t wait for tonight!
! Awesome !
Sawblaze i Still very septical with this bit.not a great potentiel
This has potential to be the best episode of Battlebots so far!
I still don’t agree with Sawblaze automatically getting in as their performance was very hit or miss compared to last year (especially with that “win” over Blacksmith)
who are the final 17 and who is fighting who? I think it would have been fun to repost that info with my picks of who would get the final 8 slots.
C'mom Duck! and Hal! Winners no matter what happens tonight! Love the Quack Attack!
Definitely a tougher road to the giant nut. Some of those bots have really taken a beating in the prelims. And remember all this was filmed and in a very short time frame. Not allot of time to rebuild between matches. Hats off to all these teams.
I got a feeling that Huge will get in, as will Hypershock
I was right. It was Tombstone, SawBlaze and Whiplash in the other three spots of the top 16. Can't wait to see who the other eight are.
Love battlebots; gets better every season !!!
It's going to be a good one for sure!
Not really surprised by these choices honestly. I'm just anticipating the other half.
For a sec there, I thought they were listed by tournament seeding. (1,8,4,5,2,7,3,6). And then I realized it was alphabetical
I think we find out who the seeds are on Thursday out of these sixteen robots.
So it's kind of like an extra round of the tournament. Eight battlebots are already in, but the remaining 17 robots have to go through an extra fight in order to make it to the round of 16. So I guess this could kind of be the pseudo round of 25?
I've been a Battlebots fun for a long time, but this so called format is an absolute joke and an insult to both the builders and fans. Is the committee that incompetent they can't select the other 8? You guys seriously cheated Railgun Max out of the top 16. You made it fight 2 bots at once? Uppercut just sat back and then took the victory. That's a complete joke.
I absolutely don’t understand why Sawblaze and Whiplash are automatically in while Huge and SOW (along with Hypershock and Lockjaw) are risking to be eliminated. SOW is way stronger than SawBlaze. Maybe the committee doesn’t like the fact that a single team might have 2 bots in the final top 16 (the other being Hydra) and so they have decided to put on a grudge match vs Copperhed to make the show more entertaining. But to my mind this is very unfair.
I think too that the bots that looked unbeatable could be making an early exit, or get really smashed up in the tournament and an upset occur. No way to tell but watch out for black dragon.
Can we bring back the tournament where 32 bots are in?
Now why would members of Team HyperShock be in the "Garden" section of the hardware store? 🤔 ... See MoreSee Less
a couple teams willing to try some different ideas out. that's exciting! these are the types of things I enjoy about the show.
A new rake. Oh yes, yes, yes. Yippee. I love the rake.
I love them!
A new rake!
I think we are about to see a new rake on Hypershock.
I hope it's a new rake haha
Any part of the builder places is a candy store for bot building. 🙂
To buy and decompose grass cutters?
A new rake!!! Truly, one of the greatest moments in BattleBots history. I still cannot believe that worked.
I’m raking my brain, but can’t seem to think of any good reason...!
Wish I could find the hexbug toy of hypershock....was never mass produced tho
A new rakening has come
To treat their driveway to prevent damage from any plant life trying to take root?
GET THE RAKE!
Omg the "Return of the Rake" 2019 😀😀
I am Concerned
Not a rake, some sort of modified pitchfork or a giant corkscrew, either would jam up Huge.
Buying a new RAKE? 😃😃😃 Bring back the rake!!!!
It makes since could use the rake actually to jam up huges wheels
I mean the rumor was that if will found out he was fighting huge, he was sticking a chainsaw on top of hyper shock Maybe that’s against the rules, but what about an electric hedge trimmer?😂
Building the dual rake Special!!! thats what they gotta do,.. as 2 Rakes are better than one.
Maybe for whenever retirement comes and he goes from being a fighter to a gardener bot
With so many teams on the bubble this season—all with solid records and a strong strength of schedule—for the first time in BattleBots history, the final 8 spots of the TOP 16 will be decided by a series of PLAY-IN matches. Those matches happen FRIDAY! 8pm (et) on Discovery ... See MoreSee Less
My heart weeps for Hypershock and RotatoR. Both deserve to make the tourney so badly, but they did not get desirable draws here.
This is a great new twist! My picks are Rotator, Uppercut, Lock Jaw, Huge, Valkerie, & Cobalt!
If I were sow and yeti i'd be pissed. That being said, I think this is a good sign for BattleBots that there are so many truly good bots out there. Time to expand to 32 teams!
Both huge and hyper shock deserve to be in it, going to be sad to not see one of them in the tourney.
As much as I like Huge, I'm really hoping Hypershock can pull off a miracle and win. These guys have been like the miracle comeback kids and have had a solid season so far even with one loss. Really hoping for their success. This fight card is gonna be intense though.
This is going to be awesome. I will stab at Cobalt, Quantum, Yeti, Lock-Jaw, HUGE, RailGun Max, Rotator and Son of Whyachi.
I was wondering how some of these were going to be determined. Sounds great for us viewers. Really, the playoffs start here!
The quality of robots in this group is incredible. Any other year several of these would have been Top 10 machines.
Would love to see the reasoning behind how these were selected.
My predictions are as follows; Cobalt, Quantum, Yeti, Skorpios, HUGE, Uppercut, RotatoR and Copperhead.
Is this the best battle card of all time?
So love BattleBots! This is literally the only thing my sons will watch on tv and we make a big family night thing of it =)
I'm very surprised at some of the bots they're listing as on the bubble here. Will be an interesting episode.
I love it! Let's go Battlebots! Smokey
very intersting. a lot of great fight. Great bot. But common ! lock-jaw Rotator and SOW. without technical problem they will win .
Some of these are a joke. Yeti and SOW deserve to not be stuck in some gimmick like this. I LOVE Duck but he doesn’t deserve this favorable matchup. Also Free Shipping being excluded in lieu of a team like Copperhead is an equally sized injustice
Cobalt Quantum Yeti LockJaw Huge (but why can’t both be in! 😭) Uppercut Rotator (but an upset would be beautiful) SOW
Tough draw for Yeti. Would think Yeti should be in top 16 for sure, but Duck is the kind of bot it can easily lose to.
Hmmm, Rotator got a really easy opponent in Blacksmith. I'm surprised some of these, like Huge, need to play to get in?
They still on tv . Was a bummer when the major network cancelled. Was good family fun watching the battles
I really want to see Hypershock, Yeti and Lockjaw make the top 16.
Having watched many reality game shows, someone that they tend to focus on a lot is usually the person/team who wins. Hypershock has gotten a lot of attention this year and has an almost redemption arc. If they were to go out tomorrow night it would be sad but I could see the editing throughout the season showing they go much further.
I wish they would have put Cobalt vs Blacksmith and Rotator vs Minotaur. Both Cobalt and Minotaur should be able to advance imo.
a rematch of copperhead versus son of whyotchi!! who else remembers that incredible upset a couple seasons ago??
So do we get them all on Friday, no waiting for Science Channel to catch up in late 2021?
love this matchup! Minotaur's been on a tear as of late and cobalt is far and away my favorite bot of this season. Gotta give the edge to Minotaur though since Cobalt's front wedge seems to be easy to rip off and at the perfect height for Minotaur's drum, making their incredible blade next to useless due to its height.
I'm sorry, Minotaur, I cheer for Cobalt, but... I'm sorry, Cobalt, but Minotaur has a bigger chance. Now that it appears they have fixed themselves (not exactly as perfect as last season, but the Desperado & the Shatter fight shows that they are at least climbing back on decent ground), that Brazilian drum is most likely gonna tear off that wedge (the only pathway to Cobalt's high blade) before grinding the face & hurling the British bot several times over. Granted, this is the team that dominated both the UK (Carbide) & China (Tungsten), but for me, BattleBots offers the fiercest competition. As much as I'm rooting for Cobalt, I'm expecting Minotaur to take this. I'm taking it that Cobalt relies on that disc to kick it back on its wheels... I'm not sure if that's better than sacrificing weight for a self-righting electric axe like that of Tungsten's... May the best team win. A shame only one can make it through...
Really hope Cobalt wins this. The bot from my home country and the one I've been rooting for all season...
I love Minotaur and their driver is the best...it showed Friday night as they won against Cobalt, but it was a great matchup and both teams played their hearts out!
This should actually be a pretty awesome match. As long as Cobalt goes back to their original wheels.
Always loved Minotaur...however like Cobalt and always support the home team!!
Now I am confused. I was told we would be starting the top 16 tomorrow but this main event implies that there are still some qualifiers left. What’s going on
A main event for the ages!
For this ep i believe all the fights are trying to get into the tourney, win and get in or lose and go home, what a twist this yr :0
Don't do this to me! These are two of my favorite bots! I want them both in the big show! 😧😢😲😓
May the best one win, Minotaur 😎
"For the first time ever, all 3 judges couldn't decide a winner. Instead, they each gave Cobalt and Minotaur a birth into the Top 16"
So, Cobalt gets a pass to the top 16 on the grounds that Minotaur has 3 losses and needed the Desperado to get 2 of its wins.
I’m rooting for Minotaur to win.
This will be a fast and intense fight. :O I think Cobalt will thrown in the air but who knows, we will see it!
My guess is you've decided the top 8. The remaining 8 are play-offs for the top 16
Two of my favorite bots. This is going to be good.
Wow. I think Minotaur will take it, but I really want Cobalt to get this one! If it gets into the top 16, there is a great chance of it winning the nut (if that pesky floor doesn't get involved again that it). If it does win the nut, it'll be the first bot to win a championship in all three big Robot Combat shows, those being Robot Wars (UK), Battlebots (US) and King of Bots (China). That's a once in a lifetime opportunity to WITNESS, let alone achieve.
Whoever is making these matches deserves an award!
good fight Cobalt! i couldn’t help but wonder what the result might have been if your spinner could have reached minotaur!
Love both of them especially cobalts newer design this season but gotta go with minotaur
I like both of them, but Minotaur has not had such a good season (even though they're having a better season than bronco) so I have to go with Cobalt in this one!
while I will cheer for Cobalt I am nervous Minotaur fought three UK bots and won by KO
Proposal for a new calendar, reseting the year to zero and use BCM (before cobalt minotaur) and ACM (after... ) to distinguish the new age from the old
Whoa, this is going to be a heck of a match up! Both of these guys pack very deadly vertical spinners!
A sneak peak at one of the match ups you'll get to see this Friday on BattleBots. For more exclusive content become a BattleBots Supporter!
Get your handkerchiefs ready because the love is about to go down. Yes, during a Bot fight it’s kill or be killed. But before and after matches these bot builders have only the highest respect each other. Feel the joy, Share the love. Let the robots fight and humans hug it out. ... See MoreSee Less
I absolutely love these little videos. The BattleBots community is very positive and there's a sense of camaraderie all over. Displays of good sportsmanship are plentiful, and that's really nice to see these days. I've wanted to become a supporter for awhile now, right now I'm paycheck to paycheck, waiting for the Texas summer and $400 electric bills to hurry up and leave. It would be a dream come true to actually go and be a part of it all 😃😃
Yep. This is one of the reasons I love Battlebots. It's not just the fights. It's the people. Will all the negativity in modern sports this is a great thing to see.
That was awesome, it's important to let people know how they have inspired you and what a gracious reply. Love it! I also like the good guy/bad guy thing but we all know they're all good guys.
I'm kind of shocked with some of the selections. I'm just one person, but IMO a few of the 3-1 bots in the play in should have been in (their one loss being to a top 10 bot).
THIS is what Battlebots is all about. 💜 I totally felt his emotion.
A great show, I cannot believe we are starting the knockout tournament this week. I am looking forward to a new season next year!
At first I was alittle confused, but this makes alot sense. Lockjaw is 3-1 with 1 loss to tombstone, but the duck fight was close, bombshell had them for alittle while and there only true dominate win was quantum. As for skorpios, they are 3-1 but there lost is against uppercut which was probably unexpected by the selection committee. There tantrum win went the full 3 minutes and wasnt as dominate as it could have been and copperhead was destroying them until it just died. There only dominate win is against a 1-1 sidewinder. I bet alot of people are gonna be confused though
Looking for Duck! and Hal to get back in the win column!
I reckon this fight is going to be one of the ones to narrow down the robots currently undecided for the tournament, but are still in the running, whereas some bots like Bite Force, Hydra and Tombstone are already locks for the tourney.
Lock jaw sure dominated that whole fight
If this is legit, then I'm guessing lockjaw won. Because we know why free shipping vs bronco was a rematch
I was expecting both to get in the tourney not eliminate the other smh
Ironically Zach looks a lot older than Donald.
HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL MATCH! Did the Judges get it right? Lock-Jaw vs. Skorpios.
Were the Judges right, or were they dead wrong? Watch this match between Lock-Jaw and Skorpios and let us know what you think. Whatever the case, this was a friendly exhibition match, live from the recent Amazon re:MARS party where BattleBots held an ALL-STAR live event.
Tune in this Friday (8pm on Discovery) to watch the match that really counts between Skorpios and Lock-Jaw. Tournament implications will be on the line! ... See MoreSee Less
A're the Battlebots social media team getting enough sleep? 😉
I’ve learned this season that the arena & judges all need to be replaced for 2020.
Definitely should've been a win for Lockjaw, but great sportsmanship and a great match!
Lockjaw won control, aggression and damage. The only thing I can think of was it didn't have movement, it really should have never gotten to the judges because it didn't have movement (in the sense described by the rules) for well over 10 seconds. If the ref was counting they should have started earlier.
Well technically Lockjaw was immobilized in the last couple seconds. Plus he was on fire, that's considered highly damaged. As much as I love Lockjaw, I'd give it to Skorpios
LockJaw had it all the way...plain and simple, kept mobility, kept striking, judges were wrong in my opinion. GO BATTLEBOTS!!!!!
I think the judges WE'RE right and besides it was a friendly match that was fun to watch
True saved by the Bell, there was no countdown that I saw started. Lockjaw should have been way ahead on points.
That’s tough. Maybe the judging guidelines should change to a different and higher points system? Would that help at all?
not the correct call. what were the judges watching. I rarely agree with the judges decisions
One thing I've noticed watching battle bots all these years, is that you never want the match to go into the judges hands.
I was iffy on this decision, but I mean the internal damage of Lock Jaw speaks volumes and Skorpios - BattleBot did keep coming at Lock Jaw and kept on going head on despite the weapon going which does indeed count for points. The judges know what they're doing and sometimes they might make a call I don't agree with, but they got three people in now who know the sport and know how fights go, and have all been personally a part of a close JD in the past
Its time you guys got new judges!
If Lockjaw had been fully counted out like Nightmare was against Beta back in 2016, then I'd agree with Skorpios winning. But it hadn't. As far as I can see, Lockjaw was by far the more damaging machine, while both robots consistently put up an aggressive display against each other. Regardless of Skorpios' contributions, past applications of the 'primary weapon' rule dictate that its efforts would've normally been nullified once the saw became disabled. Shame to see this battle take a turn like this, but oh well...
I am not sure what the criteria is for winning.I thought the loss of the primary weapon was the eliminator.
At the bell Skorpio was able to keep fighting and Lockjaw despite being the aggressor throughout was not. Good call.
This is a perfect example of the saying “never leave it in the judges hands. “
There is no way this was a win for anyone but Lockjaw. Skorpios didn't DO anything. No weapon, took tons of damage, and drove around like a poor pushbot for the whole match. New judges next season, and a demand that the scorecards be displayed. That's an absolute failure by the judges.
To me, this was clearly a Lockjaw win. Not close. The decision was wrong.
Terrible. LockJaw won plain and simple. Skorpios did nothing the entire fight.
Please understand, I don't know what the judges were thinking. Lockjaw had it, 99%.
Tough call but Lockjaw was clearly done for at the end.
I think lockjaw beat one of the judges in the past and this was pay back lol
Lockjaw disabled the primary weapon of Skorpios early on. Lockjaw won the damage battle 3-0, because clearly Skorpios didn't cause any damage with their primary weapon and Lockjaw was drilling Skorpios repeatedly. Are you telling me Skorpios sweeps 4 points for aggression and control? I think not. Lockjaw won this one. The damage he suffered was not caused by his opponent.
Lockjaw ended the match literally on fire and could barely move... I can't see why the victory should be handed to them... they lost that match, even if it wasn't Skorpios doing...
