AIRED:
The #7 seeds, Firestorm are back. Can they go all the way? Firestorm III From: Durham Weight: 100 Kilos Weapons: Front Flipper Strengths: Power of Weapon Weaknesses: Poor Transmitter Reliability Eliminators Fight 1: Firestorm (Seeded 7th) Vs Bee-Capitator House Robots: Matilda and Sir Killalot Firestorm showed no mercy. They flipped Bee-Capitator over and over again and eventually into Matilda. However, Bee-Capitator slid off of Firestorm's flipper, causing Matilda's flywheel to smack fight into Firestorm's flipping arm, bending it. Fortunately, Bee-Capitator were stuck upside-down and were counted out. Sir Killalot picked Bee-Capitator up and roasted them onto the flame pit. Bee-Capitator was then pitted. A wounded Firestorm moves on to the next round. Fight 2: Sir Chromalot Vs Rohog House Robots: Matilda and Sir Killalot Sir Chromalot won this fight because Rohog couldn't get their lifter working properly. Sir Chromalot flipped Rohog a few times until eventually they broke down. Refbot counted Rohog out. Matilda ripped Rohog up with her flywheel. Rohog was roasted on the flame pit and then pitted by the House Robots. Fight 3: Reactor 2 Vs Bot Out Of Hell BOOH (Wha?) had excellent menuverability but they had no self-righting mechanism. Reactor used their flipper and flipped BOOH right onto their side. BOOH couldn't self-right. They were counted out by the Ref. The House Robots then tried to put BOOH onto the floor flipper, but BOOH finally escaped. Too bad! You still lose and go back to hell! Reactor moves on to the second round! Fight 4: Gemini (Seated 18) Vs Ruf Ruf Dougal The clusterbot made good use of their flippers, flipping Ruf Ruf Dougal all over the arena. Dougal fought back strong, but then they drove onto the Co2 jets, which made mince-metal out of Dougal's insulation ears. Oh dear! Gemini flipped Dougal against the arena side wall. Dougal was a big mess. Insulation was all over the place. Sir Killalot then picked Dougal up and dumped the dog out of the arena. Gemini goes through. Heat Semi-Finals Firestorm III Vs Sir Chromalot This fight was cake for Firestorm. They were able to repair their flipper and flipped Sir Chromalot over and over. Sir Chromalot couldn't self-right. They were counted out. Then the House Robots placed them onto the floor flipper. Sir Chromalot went flying through the air and came crashing down. Sir Chromalot was then pitted. Firestorm goes through. Gemini Vs Reactor 2 Gemini was on top in the beginning of the fight, flipping Reactor over and over again. Fortunately, Reactor had a round body, making themselves roll right back onto their wheels. Reactor axed one of the Gemini bots. Then, suddenly, one Gemini bot flipped themselves over. Its partner tried to flip the other Gemini bot over as well, but ended up rolling over as well. Refbot counted Gemini out. Reactor were the lucky winners. Firestorm III Vs Reactor 2 Firestorm drove right onto Reactor's flipper. Reactor launched Firestorm a few feet away from them, but then Firestorm was able to get underneath Reactor and pushed them over to the side wall. Firestorm then flipped Reactor up onto the side wall. Reactor dangled there for a few seconds before finally falling out into the House Robot entrance. Firestorm move on to the Series Semi-Finals!moreless
