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 Atlanta over the Memorial Day Weekend and once again at Dragon Con.

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 past 30 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?

Robot Battles 72 @ Dragon Con Labor Day Weekend!

Hard to believe it, but Robot Battles will be continuing our fourth decade of robotic combat where it all started for us back in 1991: the Dragon Con convention in Atlanta, Georgia over the Labor Day Weekend of 2024!

Microbattles will be on Sunday morning at 10:00 in the Hyatt International Ballroom (load-in for builders at 8:30) featuring the one and three pound bots in our newly refurbished and updated combat arenas.

The main Robot Battles will be on Monday morning at 11:00 in the Hyatt Regency Ballroom (load-in for builders at 9:00) featuring the twelve and thirty pound bots.

As always, builder check-in and registration will be handled on site the morning of each event. The bracket format for each event will be decided at that time based on the number of entries (single elimination, double elimination, or round-robin).
One-day passes will be available for both Sunday and Monday for those who cannot attend the entire weekend. You do need a Dragon Con badge in order to attend or compete in the event, but that also gets you into all the rest of the con, which is fun!

We are looking forward to another exciting and eventful Robot Battles, and we hope to see you there!
