Hard Vs Terrorhurtz (2)[]

Terrorhurtz and Hard battling it out

Terrorhurtz started the battle off by giving Hard a few blows with its axe before hitting what seemed to be one of Hards gas pipes causing a cloud of CO2 to fly. With no gas, Hard was defenceless and was chased a lot by the 2nd seed who continued to chase and batter the Belgian robot. Hard made a move to hit the pit release button, it tried to lure Terrorhurtz into the pit, but it was no use. Eventually, Terrorhurtz finished the battle by putting Hard down the pit.

Winner: Terrorhurtz

Knightmare Vs Velocirippa[]

Knightmare got the first flip on Velocirippa turing itself over in the process but self-righted and Velocirippa rolled back on its wheels in the attack. Velocirippa kept missing flips on Knightmare though it did get under it momenterilly but missed the oppertunity. Velocirippa again got under this time turning Knightmare over, but Knightmare recovered. Knightmare then thrusted Velocirippa onto its back, reversed towards the arena wall and flipped it over the fence and out.

Winner: Knightmare

Terrorhurtz (2) Vs Knightmare[]
