Pretty sure the initial round is 12 bots in four 3-way rumbles with 1 bot from each going through to the 48.

Sorry, I did a bit of a cut n paste from Reddit. I assumed they were up to date on who the tournament was structured.

It showed at 11:30 am Adelaide time. I've found a torrent, will watch it tonight. Not sure if it's being showed legitimately in Australia at any stage.

first episode is sweet,

death drones, flaming hammers, whyachi verses a five part multibot, last fight was a shocka, invader (megabyte) being maybe too powerful,

CAN NOT WAIT

Indeed. Really not sure about that last fight, and where the line gets drawn at "active weapon" though.
Nice to see a glimpse of Death Roll in the box, can't wait to see it fight.

Edit: Can't work out how to do spoiler tags so I won't say more, but apparently the bot in question had an active weapon that got damaged before it could activate.

I have a feeling they made an exception for Black Ice as the guy had never built a robot before but was a NASA astronaut and therefore a true American hero! Laughing

sewer pipe? I was hoping it'd be some kind of magical steel refined by virgins mixed with a pinch of alien DNA or something :-<
