Killer "B" -- The Results

Unfortunately we only made it to the semi-finals and lost in the "Duel to the death" part. This is a Sumo event where you try to push the other robot out of the 'box' and down an 8' drop to the concrete floor below (that has a bunch of steel spikes set up.)

Our weakness was that our wedge was so low and effective that we actually wedged under the guard rail that is up before the final part of the event. Our opponent took advantage of this predicament and waited for the rail to be knocked down and then managed to get us pushed before we could get enough traction to get back on firm ground.

It just goes to show that you have to beat both the opponent and the arena to win. This is similar to people who get disabled in the BattleBox arena on the kill saws and lose by default.
