    Yay for battlebots season 3! But the real question is why doesn't VEX / IFI sponsor End Game?

    @Easton Yay for battlebots season 3! But the real question is why doesn't VEX / IFI sponsor End Game?

    Hopefully next time? :)

    Episode 1 had some epic fights, we need as many viewers as possible to help the ratings get us Season 4! The episode that airs on Fridays 8pm will also air on Science Channel on the following Wednesday, so if you miss it, make sure to tune in then.

    p.s keep an eye on this weeks fight cards when they become available

    20$ for whole season. The first episode was amazing so it should be worth it.

    I was confused when I first saw it with a vex controller in season 1.

    @Royal_xD Wot-?! How?!? How have they not disconnected during a match?! xD

    Well they don't have to follow any rules about modifying electrical components. They completely remove the cortex case and bypass the battery connector/ power switch etc

    Also it helps that max 5 teams are driving a robot at the same time at the event. 3 in match and 2 test boxes so interference is a lot lower than 1000 teams at worlds.

    Minotaur almost beat him, they might have won had they not been caught on the shredded field.

    Spinners are their own worse enemies if they go up against a robot that can take a punch.
