    Does anyone remember any battles that went to a judges decision and you believe the outcome was unfair

    Share your thoughts (with reasons why you disagree with the decision)and I'll try and explain why those decisions were made.

    Mute Vs. Judge Shred- Mute didn't get a single good attack in. There was no reason for them to win.

    Bolt From The Blue vs. Firestorm- BFTB got underneath and had a working weapon. Firestorm didn't have either

    Mute DID get a good attack in on Judge Shred 3, Mute was very stylish with its sommersaults and Judge Shred 3 lost one drive motor towards the end of the fight (probably immobalised).

    As for BFTB Vs Firestorm ll, Firestorm was WAY more aggressive, as they slammed into BFTB many times, and BFTB only got one even slightly good attack with the flipperon Firestorm, and I'm pretty sure Firestorm's flipper was workingalthough we never saw it because they never got underneath BFTB's zero ground clearance, so they couldn't use it.

    Series 6, 259 vs Wild Thing
    Yes, I know, 259 got immobilized in the end, but if the ref bot haven't counted him out yet, I don't think it should count.

    All that mattered was that 259 was immobilized for at least 30 seconds, which it was. Refbot's countdown only confirms that in battle.
