Betz Botz Robot Combat - Fall Brawl


Joseph Betz :

Wisconsin Robot Combat has now been rebranded to Betz Botz Robot Combat. Expect better events, more events (monthly), and the same stiff competition moving forwards!

Cash Prizes (this is new)

1st Place - $750

2nd Place - $200

3rd Place - $50 + Free entry credit

All robots must comply with the Betz Botz Ruleset.

We are running a Modified Swiss format. The top 8 robots at the end of four qualifying rounds will be sent over to a single elimination tournament to determine the winner.


Betz Botz Judging Criteria

If free food and two free entry credits at any future event sounds good to you, sign up as a volunteer judge here. We’ll train you if you’ve never judged before. It’s a great time, but spots are limited, so sign up early!

Event Flow

We'll be using two arenas to save time.

Everyone should be using the queuing spreadsheet (which we will link later) to keep track of their fight(s) coming up. When it is almost your fight, you should do your best to be at the queueing table so that you're ready to load in for the next match in a timely manner. We can disqualify builders if they go over their 20min repair window, and we can disqualify builders if they're not at the queue table within 2mins of the time they were supposed to load in.
