They wouldn't let us take videos of the last 3 matches (aka the best matches) because they took place in the large arena.

Incase you haven't heard(you probably have), in the match against Executor(in the above video), when you see the weapon come off and a few people get up(then the camera look up at the ceiling)....

Well, if you couldn't tell, they shattered the Lexan and the weapon shot through the ceiling of the box...

I think part of it was, no offense Will, you're an amazing driver, but eXecutor's driver was just better, that or the drive system itself was better.

and the MI driver was good, but the main thing is that his drum was going a little bit faster than ours, and grabbed the tooth and threw it in the air..

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if eXecuter's driver was just a little bit more familiar with their robot than Will is with Fluffy. The benefits of having a robot operational for a few years ahead of the competition in question.
