So as a followup to this thread from last year.
It has been a big year for Vex teams getting into BattleBots. This year there are 3 former VEX teams competing.

For those who don’t know what BattleBots is.
BattleBots is played on a 48 ft by 48 ft field by two alliances, red and blue, each made up of 1 teams. The object of the game is to do more damage than the opposing alliance using: saws, flippers and spinners. Damage is scored by which robot is still moving at the end of the 3 minute match. In the event that both robots are still moving the judges will decide who wins.
Here is the promo, it should get you pretty dang hyped.
The first episode airs tomorrow at 8pm on discovery, and End Game will have its first fight, which will probably go down in history as one of the most epic fights. The episodes are 2 hours now, so more fights and more action.
The full fight card for the first episode is here
