Ryan's Totally Not Complicated Tournament Idea

Spinnerproof presents: every robot1 from the reboots of both Robot Wars and Battlebots under one Lexan roof to battle it out for the title of Ultimate Champion Or Something.

The main section of the tournament follows a Battlebots style bracket with Ryan and Sam working to assign 'odds' for each battle then simulating the results with what will almost certainly be highly contentious results.

Format

Procedure - general

  1. A discussion takes place to ascertain the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two machines when matched against each other, and the impact of possible strategies teams may employ.
  2. From the discussion, a set of 'odds' (1:5, 2:4, 3:3, 4:2, 5:1) for the match are agreed upon.
  3. A die is rolled to determine a winner, based upon the odds.
  4. In a match which is agreed as being 4:2, numbers 1, 2, 3 or 4 would be a win for Robot A, 5 or 6 a win for Robot B.
  5. The winner advances through the bracket, the loser is eliminated.
