Bash and Matilda Chaos 2 kept flipping Storm over and over, but Storm's round shell kept them on their wheels. Halfway through the fight, Storm blew a fuse. Chaos 2 then flipped Storm into Matilda. Matilda then decided to show off her new bum by ramming Storm with the flywheel, but Chaos 2 took punishment from the Disc of Doom as well, damaging his flipper. Storm broke down. Chaos pushed Storm onto the pit and pressed the release button. Storm fell into the pit. The UK champion moves on to round 2. Fight 2: SMIDSY Vs Obisidon House Robots: Sgt Bash and his new girlfriend Matilda Smidsy relentlessly pushed Obisidon around the arena into Bash's CPZ. Obisidon axed Bash's flamethrower, but didn't do anything. Obisidon broke down and Refbot counted Obisidon out. Obisidon axed Bash again. Matilda wanted to have fun...so she did. She rear-ended Obisidon ripping the armor off. Obisidon was flipped and pitted. Smidsy gave a victory grin as he moved on to the next round. Fight 3: 8645T Vs T-Bone House Robots: Sir Killalot and Shunt This fight was pretty dull. 8645T got a few flips on T-Bone. T-Bone pressed the Pit Tire. 8645T then dug his claw into T-Bone thtoughout the rest of the fight. Cease! The judges decided that 8645T were the winners. Fight 4: Steel Avenger Vs Tartan Terror House Robots: Sir Killalot and Shunt TT started spinning madly hitting Steel Avenger with the ball and chain. But it wasn't enough. Steel Avenger axed Tartan Terror, killing it. Refbot counted out Tartan Terror. Shunt and Sir K then roasted TT on the flame pit, burning the kilt. As Shunt was pushing TT towards the floor flipper, Jonathan Pearce noticed that Shunt was on fire! However, that was only pieces of the kilt that were burning on Shunt's wheel casing. TT was flipped once, twice, 3 times on the floor flipper. Cease was called. The Steel Avenger move on to round 2. Round 2 Fight 1: Chaos 2 Vs Steel Avenger House Robots: Matilda and Sgt. Bash Chaos 2 was hot tonight! They flipped Steel Avenger over and over and over. SA used the new sriemec to self-right, but Chaos 2 was too strong. Chaos 2 then flipped SA out of the arena into some camera equipment. Fight 2: SMIDSY VS 8645T House Robots: Sir Killalot and Shunt Once Smidsy flipped 8645T onto their side it was all over. The Beast didn't have a siremec and Refbot counted them out. Killalot then prepared to push 8645T onto the floor flipper. Unfortunately, we never got to see the Beast fly. Sir K accidently righted 8645T and they escaped just when cease was called. Heat Final Chaos 2 Vs SMIDSY Part 1 Chaos flipped Smidsy. Smidsy then rode on Chaos' flipper. Chaos hurled Smidsy towards the wall. Smidsy went into the wall, but not out. Chaos prepared for their old "flip out of arena" trick, but ended up flipping themselves onto their back. Chaos tried to self-right, but failed. According to George Frances, Smidsy had broken their flipper cover, making them unable to flip themselves back onto their wheels. Meanwhile, Smidsy was still hanging on the wall, their jaws were moving, their wheels were spinning and they were coming frighteningly close to coming back into the action! Cease was called. The judges decided to have a rematch. Chaos 2 Vs SMIDSY Part 2 Smidsy went on a side attack instead of a frontal attack. Chaos then flipped Smidsy again. Smidsy rode on Chaos back again. Chaos pushed Smidsy into Sir K's CPZ. Smidsy was flipped into the wall again, but this time, Chaos was finally able to flip Smidsy out of the arena. Chaos celebrated as he and George Frances move on to the semi-finals.moreless
