    Razor already returned.
    Yeah but they were totally robbed and should have gone much further.

    Whilst I agree, I doubt it would have won. Others such as Apollo and Carbide (provided the spinner worked) would have been too much for it imo.

    yeah that's true although I feel it could have beaten carbide if it could get behind it.

    Yeah it would have definitely done damage it that was the case, but Carbide near enough killed everything it touched so it'd have to be careful. It is a shame that Razer went out so early though, since it's by far the best crusher both in terms of looks and ability.

    The robot I'd like to see square off against Carbide is Gabriel. I did initially write it off but after the fight with Pulsar I do think it's very well designed, and can certainly take a huge beating. Carbide would push it around more than Pulsar thanks to a much bigger weapon but a good hit seems to pretty much neuter Carbide's spinner - and I think repeated hits on something else durable enough to take it could quite possibly shut it down as well.

    Great Final, enjoyable series.
    Hopefully a second series happens.

    Fix the editing, Maybe add a bit more fun into the series- It's all just too serious.

    A longer series (10-16 heats) with semi finals before the grand final would be awesome. Hopefully there will be more time between now and the applications closing, and a further gap between then and the next filming, so that the builders aren't having to rush things as much as before.

    I thought it was fair enough. I wouldn't say they were robbed. It was clever on the Kill-E-Krank-E guys' parts.

    Anyway, Team Razer have always been bad losers. They'll probably be back. I might be wrong, but I was under the impression they'd entered the robot pretty much with no upgrades at-all.

    Disappointing either way. I really want to see Razer and Behemoth pair off for round two - 16 years in the waiting now.

    The applications shut off very quickly actually, I think it's November if not this month. Fortunately most teams will be ready to go anyway because of the live events.

    I think team Hypnodisc said they'd come back for a second season, so fingers crossed. That would be amazing. I really want to see whoever is hoarding Mortis get it back in to the competition. I don't know if Chaos 2 exists anymore, but I suspect Beast may have been based on Chaos 2 as John hinted - he certainly has some of the parts of Chaos 2.

    Cheers for the info. Quite similar to the announcement in January, cut-off in February we had for the series just gone, then. I guess they're expecting to be inundated with entries. :giggle:

    It's the prospective new teams, and old TV teams that haven't taken part in the live shows that will have the most work to do (along with any of last series' teams that plan on entering something totally new), but from what I can gather the robot doesn't even need to have been built at the application stage, so I guess there's still time after that.

    :ditto: Though Ian Lewis seemed to take the loss well this time, at least. Their defeats in BattleBots as well.

    I think the current Behemoth could beat Razer quite comfortably, unless they make some proper upgrades for the next series.

    As much as I'd love to see Warhead on Robot Wars, BattleBots has an exclusivity rule which means that any robot featured in the series can't show up on any other televised robot combat show. :sadnod: Which is a shame, as more than anything I wonder whether a few of the American teams would enter the UK series without that restriction.
