Am I allowed to post Battlebots (US equivalent) stuff in here?

Watched a few of the US ones they seem to lack the idiosyncrasies. They just seemed to have found a way of winning (heavy, sharp, rotarey thing) and they all do it. It’s quite spectacular but gets boring quickly.

The reboot a few years ago was fucking great. Don’t know if it was improvements in battery technology or what, but the robots were proper beasts and really fucked each other up.
