I have no idea how they're going to condense all of robogames down to one hour. I watched them filming and they took SO MUCH FOOTAGE. Sadly, they didn't once pan the cameras over to me in the Robot MarketPlace booth Sad

To someone who actually knows about robot fighting from any source other than tv the hour special wouldn't have had very high entertainment values.

I guess you could say I was let down. I was sad Team Riobotz lost to a wedge.

There were only wedge bots, lifters, or undercutters with the exception of Riobotz Touro.
I guess Mini Fridge was a hammer bot if you could call it that.

For those interested, Fuzzy Mauldin has listed the full brackets:

One quirk of the editing was that breaker box was edited out completely even though he got 3rd.

I finally got a chance to watch the show and I loved it! I think it was edited well for the audience they were trying to reach. Of COURSE we all want to see more of the bots, more of the fights, more of the pits, more of the builders!

I'm actually concerned that the horrible reviews people are posting will scare off ANY chance of TV time next year. Unless you really did hate the show, you guys should all go post your constructive criticism on the big sites.
