Watched a few episodes and I was hooked.  This is much better than a Pacquiao fight.

I love this show.  It's like MMA without the bloodshed but with lots of destruction.  :)

Season 5 was full of surprises. Those expected to be the winner did not make. Hydra though hated was expected to that it pero natalo.

Witch Doctor is my favorite.  Hypershock sucks but probably one of the best looking bots. While Biteforce is still the bot to beat imho.

Not the best bot but perhaps the one with the best driving skills-Whiplash!

I like tombstone. Simple design but very destructive.

Minotaur is my favorite - small but terrible.  I liked how it ate up the much larger Bronco one wheel at a time.

Most fun to watch is Beta (hammer-time!) and Tombstone for sheer destructive mayhem.

Sampler:  Minotaur vs Blacksmith.  Listen for the hum as Minotaur spools up its drum for high kinetic energy impacts.

Yeah, that's what I do, specially when they changed formats when the episodes where 1.5 hours long.  First 2 seasons had shorter episodes, and the co-hosts were eye-candy (Molly McGrath and Samantha Ponder).  :P

Naiinip na ako sa bago season. Got hooked with BB many years ago kaya nasundan ko every year ang seasons via YT. After the live episodes wala pa yata 8 hours meron na sa YT. Sayang wala last year si Biteforce kayang kaya sana mag back to back.

Outside of Youtube, where do you guys watch Battlebots?  Netflix only as the 1st 2 seasons.

From the newer bots, I like Sawblaze (fast and a really powerful hammer saw - magaling yung driver na Asian) and Shatter with it's steel-puncturing main weapon.

Sa suki ako nanonood.  Wala pa rin kasi sa Discovery+ dito. 

Impressive debut rin from Sawblaze doing a shocking demolition of Minotaur (one of my fave bots).

And looks to me like teams have figured out how to defeat Tombstone...

Yung mga bots with horizontally rotating mass main weapon like Tombstone and Gigabyte, you can make their main weapon work against them by merely pushing said weapon against a wall and the hit will send said bot flying.  Also weakness ni Tombstone are its exposed wheels.

Impressive demolition job of Madcatter by Sawblaze.  Magaling yung driver ni Sawblaze - si Jamison Go, an MIT alum.

Matagal na din si Sawblaze.Jamison is one of the best drivers issue lang is reliability ng hammer saw nya pero in this season mukhang dialed in properly na.

Yung hammer ni Shatter ang pinakamabilis pumokpok and powerful at that problema lang nya madalas maputol and driving skills not as good as the others.

Sleeper si Ribbot.

Sa sobrang lakas ng weapon ni Tombstone lumilipad din sya pag tumama sa kalaban, yun ang nag cause ng damage sa kanya vs Mammoth pero isang hit lang wasak agad si Mammoth.

Still rooting kay WD pero di impressive first win kay Duck.

Seems like Fusion got his weapon dialled in, very destructive din.

I'd like to see a battle of the "villains", i.e. Tombstone vs Hydra. Naglaban na ba sila ever? 🤔

Yun ang weakness ni Tombstone.  Once it hits very tough defensive armor, it can easily self destruct.  Kaya natatalo siya against defense oriented bots like Duck.  Other bots have adapted also by installing defensive wedges/armor.

Di pa nagkatapat si Hydra at Tombstone pero tingin ko mahirapan si Hydra kase wala sya masyadong mapapatamaan ng flipper nya bago sya maka flip baka wasak na sa blade ni Tombstone pero di din natin masabi

Speaking of great driving pinaka magaling siguro si Matt Vazques ng Whiplash. Imagine walang destructive weapon yan pero umabot ng finals last season dahil sa galing sa driving ni Vasquez. Tinalo nga nya si Hydra

 Sayang dalawang season ng wala si Bite Force two time champion pa naman.

Malaki tsansa ni Sawblaze pero mas matindi si End Game ngayon the depending champ.

Ya si Vasquez at Jamison Go ang mga mahusay na driver.  Non-stop ang tutok sa kalaban. 

Si Witch Doctor mali yung design ng front wedge nya - too close to vertical so it tends to push robots away rather than scooping them up and feeding them to the vertical spinner.

Lampaso si Witch Doctor kay End Game.  End Game had upper arm extensions designed to maintain distance from Witch Doctor's spinner and lower extension wedges designed to get underneath WD and allow WD ride up toward its weapon.  Smart mods tailor-made for the opponent.

Deadly ang weapon ni WD pero pababaan na ang labanan ngayon.  WD needs to evolve to become a contender again.

Ang napapansi ko kay Mike Gelately madami times di sya nag follow through after a deadly blow sa kalaban. Sa laban kay EG na expose yung likod at ilalim ni EG pero di sinundan ni WD. Dun naman magaling yung driver ng EG kaya pag lipad ni WD sinundan agad kaya nasibak lifter nya. Ganun din ginawa ni Bite Force sa kanya sa 2019 finals ata yun.

I would love to see EG and Sawblaze fireworks yun.

I am also excited to see Ribbot vs End Game. Grabe ang tibay ni Ribbot at magaling din ang driver.

I think he mentioned during sa interview that he had drive issues sa isang side kaya hindi siya maka-maneuver.  So may reliability issues pa rin si WD this season.

Uppercut has a knockout punch, pero mukhang medyo unstable yung design niya kaya not so maneuverable...

Ganda mga mga laban kahapon. Hanep ang strategy ni Rotator. Nice win by Minatour. Si Hypershock natanggalan na ng gulong nanalo pa.

Nice to see Hypershock winning matches.  I still think it's one of the best looking bots out there.
