Atlanta Tech Edge - Robot Battles 54

Segment of Atlanta Tech Edge on WXIA-TV (11Alive) in Atlanta.

Posted by Robot Battles on Tuesday, September 15, 2015
Since 1991, Robot Battles has been staging robotic combat competitions (mostly) around the southern United States. We look forward to returning to to Atlanta for live competitions at Dragon Con over the Labor Day Weekend and MomoCon over the Memorial Day Weekend of 2022.

Robot Battles is one of the oldest continuously running robotic combat competitions in the world. We proudly trace our roots to the Denver Mad Scientists Club and are a direct descendent of the "Critter Crunch" robotic competition held every year at MileHiCon in Denver, which began back in 1987 (and is still going strong).

Over the years, we have held nearly 70 events at conventions, Maker Faires, and game clubs in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, and even as far away as Barcelona, Spain.

But just what makes Robot Battles different from other robotic events? Well, we don't have a TV show, we don't have supermodels, and we don't have huge cash prizes. What we do have is a creatively unique host, some of the most imaginative builders and designers in the sport, and the most involved audiences in the country (in our humble opinion). And, of course, lots and lots of very intense one-on-one mechanical mayhem matches. Which is what it's all about.

As always, if you have any other questions about the newly updated and revised ruleset or future events, please feel free to contact us directly or ask us on Facebook. And while you're at it, how about doing a little shopping?

Upcoming Tournaments & Competitions

It's the start of our fourth decade of competition from where it all started: the Dragon Con convention and our largest competition of the year!

Robot Battles 69 will feature all four weight classes and will be held for two days over the 2021 Labor Day Weekend at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta hotel, with the Ants and Beetles competing on Sunday, September 5th in the International Ballroom, and the larger bots on Monday, September 6th in the Regency Ballroom (the same locations we've been for the past several years).

Contestant registration will be handled onsite the day of each event (9 a.m. for the Sunday event, 10 a.m. for the Monday competition). We'll have some special prizes this year for the winners of each weight class, which we're pretty excited about. And, yes, you'll need at least a day pass to the convention to attend or compete.

After a two-year break (for obvious reasons), we'll be back for MomoCon at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta over the Memorial Day Weekend of 2022 for Robot Battles 70. This will be a two-day event featuring all four of our weight classes: Ant, Beatle, 12-pound, and 30-pound.

On Saturday, we'll be running the "insect" weight classes (one and three pounds) in our brand new arena, and then on Sunday we'll be running the 12 and 30 pound classes on the big sumo stage.

Check-in and registration begins at 10 a.m. for competitors, with the competition starting at Noon on both days. Registration will be handled on site that day of each stage of the competition (just bring your bot and we're good). And be sure to check out our Facebook page as we get closer to the event for all the last minute details and other useful information.
