== Robot's Great War : Season 1.0==
Robot's Great War originated around January 2010 and within the first complete season it attracted 40 people. RGW had made a massive impact on the fan made robot wars community; for the first time K'nex robots were used alongside the actual Robot wars pullback toys, this impressed many famous fmrw creators such as TheRoboRichie and Masterath plus Launch1995. The first season was to begin on the 25th of January and the First Robot to enter combat and win the first fight on Robot's Great War was Spawn Extreme, defeating Obelisk and the german robot Bizmark; throwing both of the robots out of the arena in the process. Then Halberda arrived, defeating Black Knight and Warlord with its giant axe; that had never been seen before. In the final qualifier, Bigger Brother then flipped Tutara and Tourdeforce out of the arena.
The very first Season's Heat of Robot's Great War appeared on the 26th of January. This was the first appearence of Robo-zilla, a very bulky looking robot with a large scoop similar to Behemoth's from Robot Wars. Robo-zilla then flipped out Lance and X-Terminator, plus Dead Metal: one of the 5 robot wars house robots. Then in the second eliminator Porygon proved to be a mighty robot, defeating the impressive Tarantula Scorpian and Grave Digger's revenge. Terrorhurtz lived up to its name by ending the run of Dantomkia and Scourge. In the final eliminator, Firestorm surprised everyone by defeating Ghosthunter and Rammer. Then in the final rounds Porygon met its match against Robo-zilla, going out of the arena. The same fate occured for Terrorhurtz, after being defeated by Firestorm.
Heat 1 winners :Robo-zilla & Firestorm
Heat 2 wasnt long around the corner, arriving on the 31st of January. This introduced Wheely Big Cheese to the season, defeating Juggernaut and Dominator 2. In the next fight, robot wars veteran : Panic Attack lifted Scrapblade and Jackhammer out of the arena, that was no surprise. Then the robot to become a legend entered our computer screens for the first time : it could of only been Armed, the best looking robot of the first season. Many fmrw creators were amazed as for the first time, an accurate design around Battlebots star: Biohazard was built. Armed defeated Pussycat and the Harvester without problems. Tornado then blew away the oppostion, when facing Knightmare and Sesmic Crush. Then in the final rounds Wheely Big Cheese didnt have a Wheely good time against Panic Attack, aftering lifting the heavyweight out of the arena. The last fight of the heat followed between Armed and Tornado, surely Armed could win, but they suffered a major loss against Tornado, going out of the arena in less than 6 seconds!
Heat 2 winners : Panic Attack & Tornado
In the final heat, Chaos 2 proved to be no joke as it flipped Dreadblow and Dark Angel out of the arena. The same followed for Behemoth and A-bomb as Champion slain both of its opponents. Then Razer caused an upset, defeating Hypno disc aswell as 101. But the robots that qualified at the very start of the series, fought against each other, this time Spawn Extreme won, leaving Halberda and Bigger Brother out of the arena. Then in the next round both of the fights were the quickest fights ever seen on Robot's Great War, first between Chaos 2 and Champion it lasted 2 seconds, leaving Chaos 2 surviving to the Grand Finale. Then after 3 seconds, Razer laid on the other side of the arena, losing to the power of Spawn Extreme!
Heat 3 winners : Chaos 2 & Spawn Extreme
Then in the First Grand Finale of Robot's Great War, Robo-zilla lasted merely seconds against the CO2 flipper of Chaos 2 and the pushing power of Tornado. Spawn Extreme then flipped Panic Attack over the arena, surving with Firestorm. Then in the second round, Chaos 2 defeated Spawn Extreme and Tornado was beaten by Firestorm. But in the play-off for 3rd place, Spawn Extreme Flipped Tornado out of the Arena, resulting in Spawn Extreme claiming 3rd place. The final then occured between Chaos 2 and Firestorm, the best battle of the series yet and the outcome surpassed us all, leaving Firestorm as the very first Robot's Great War UK champions! Armed, who went out in heat 2 didnt lose everything, winning the best design award. Tornado won the most ferocious award, Spawn Extreme won the best flipper award and finally Sesmic Crush won the most original entry.
Robot's Great War : Season 1.0 winner :Firestorm
The Excitement of Season 1.0 didnt end there, several event followed, each of the qualifiying for the Victory Royale, which perhaps is the greatest rank of any place on RGW as the legend of the season. This episode would be the first time Robot's Great War faced editing from a good friend DalekandJedi.
In the very first grand world championships, Armed representing the UK, Defeating Tough as Nails and Tourdeforce in the first round, then faced a difficult victory over The Enermy From Below and finally fighting Rhino to win the First Grand World Championship!
Then the first blood championship followed with some new and re-designed robots entering. Out of the 6 that entered, 1 robot claimed victory. That robot was A-bomb 2, defeating Robo-Chicken, Obelisk and Knightmare 2. The flipper came out on top.
Winners : A-bomb 2
Then the next event was the annihilator, entering was Firestorm, Chaos 2, The Harvester, Panic Attack, Terrorhurtz and Dantomkia. In the first round, chaos all happened in the arena (Chaos 2 actually survived), The Harvestor was flipped and Panic Attack suffered an OOTA but Panic Attack survived. In the second round, Chaos 2 ran out of gas and was out, and yet again Panic Attack went out of the Arena. In the third round, Panic Attack was flipped and could not self-right deeming them out of the competition. Then Terrorhurtz was next to go, as Dantomkia got their revenge. But in the Final it was Dantomkia and the reigning UK champions : Firestorm. Who did you think would win? Dantomkia catapulted Firestorm out of the arena, claiming victory.
Another event was the tag team terror. Bigger Brother and X-terminator started well against Dreadblow and Warlord but lost against the massive spinning weapon. Armed and Knightmare 2 was next against Hypno-Disc and Pussycat defeating the spinning weapons and moving into the final. Armed took no time to flip Dreadblow and Flick Warlord out of the arena, to win the tag team terror!
Winners :Armed & Knightmare 2
Then in the final event was Victory Royale. This featured all the robots from the events, in a chance to challenge Firestorm for the title of the Legend of Season 1.0. In the first round, A-bomb 2 were quick to go out against the combined strength of Armed, Knightmare 2 and Dantomkia. Then Knightmare 2 got flipped out of the arena by Dantomkia, Armed then gained the oppitunity they were waiting for as they flipped dantomkia against the arena wall and Dantomkia could not self right, Armed claimed victory.
Then 3 rumbles occured between different weapons. Halberda defeated Jackhammer, Terrorhurtz, X-terminator, Dominator 2 and Bizmark. Then Dark Angel defeated Hypno-Disc, Pussycat, Dreadblow, Warlord and 101. Finally Spawn Extreme flipped out of the arena Chaos 2, Ghosthunter, Tarantula Scorpian, Juggernaut and Tourdeforce.

In the next battle, the 16th Rhino proved no match for the impressive Tourdeforce as Rhino were flipped out of the arena.

Round 2 continued, and this time Tourdeforce felt the force of going out of the arena; as Ghost hunter made it through. Black Knight then met the cleaver of Halberda and was quickly immobilised. In the first Heat final of series then ended with the impressive Ghost hunter flipping Halberda out of the arena once more!
Heat 1 winners : Ghost hunter
Season 2.0 continued into the second heat, including the impressive, redesigned Robo-zilla 2 which seemed to be in some trouble in the first melee against Tarantula Scorpian and Tutara, but Tarantula Scorpian felt the blade of Robo-zilla 2 sink right into them and therefore immobile. Then in the second melee, a promising robot appeared : Dreadblow. Dreadblow proved very destructive with their full spinning weapon and attacked Porygon 2 into submission whilst Dominator 2 staying out of the way.
In the next Sumo Basho Eliminators, Chaos 2 elminated Obelisk and after a very close match Armed took out Champion.
Round 2 soon begun and Robo-zilla 2 proved aggressive against Dominator 2 and eventully proved stronger as Dominator 2 fell foul to the house robots. Dreadblow then destroyed Tutara in the next fight, as Tutara were sent flying across the arena. But then the surprise came in the heat final, as after alot of aggression from Robo-zilla 2, they too were immobilised by Dreadblow's mighty weapon.
Heat 2 winners : Dreadblow
The action followed into heat 3, including world champions, tag team champions and legends of season 1.0 : Armed. Armed were up against Behemoth and Mantis in the first round, and quickly (with assistance from Behemoth) dispatched Mantis. In battle 2, Terrorhurtz and Warlord destroyed Gravedigger's revenge.
The sumo basho was next, and the outcome was that Robo-zilla 2 emerged victorious over Black Knight, Spawn Extreme also was victorious over Dominator 2. Then in round 2 of the main competition, Armed went for glory and got glory as it tossed Warlord out of the arena. Next up was Terrorhurtz and Behemoth and Terrorhurtz were in trouble, as they went out of the arena by Behemoth. The 11th seeds were gone. Furthermore, the heat final was next and Armed made no problem of disposing Behemoth, as they went over and out of the arena.
Heat 3 winners : Armed (3)
Heat 4 finally arrived and so did the return of the number 5 seed : Tornado, they faced Lance and Obelisk in the first round and controversionally survived even though Lance pinned Tornado up against the arena side wall for over 30 seconds but still survived; putting Lance in the place of being immobolised. Then in the second battle, seed number 13, Razer were back and this time wanted to win the title, sparing no mercy for anyone including rammer, even Shunt and Refbot felt Razer's rath as Razer qualified for round 2 along with the impressive Jackhammer.
The Sumo basho featured the last eliminators as Panic Attack defeated its nemesis Tarantula Scorpian, following up with A-bomb 2 having a grudge match with Ghost Hunter and scored vengeance on their opponents by gaining victory against Ghost Hunter in the sumo-basho.
Back in round 2, Tornado dispatched JackHammer, even Jackhammer was in the balance of going out of the new arena at one point. Razer quickly immobolised Obelisk with serious skill. Then the shock occured : Razer, seeded 13th defeated Tornado seeded 5th. It was the 3rd top seed to fail to reach the semi-finals and the second grand finalist to fall at the heat final stage; the first being Robo-zilla 2 back in heat 2.
Heat 4 winners : Razer (13)
Heat 5 could only mean one thing... The reigning champions Firestorm were back but this time defending their title and in the first round met Hypno-Disc and Bizmark, but Bizmark sank once more as Firestorm and Hypno-Disc soared through to round 2. In the second battle things were different and Juggernaut proved to be powerful, flipping Robo-chicken the highest ever on RGW; The 9th seeds Knightmare 2 also went through. Then after a successful sumo basho first part of quarter final matches, Tornado and Armed pulled through to the semi-final stage. Meanwhile in round 2, Firestorm defeated Juggernaut; failing to flip them out of the arena despite Juggernaut starting off so well until their puematic ram for the flipper exploded, leaving the flipper wide open. Knightmare 2 also got through defeating a favourite to get to the heat final Hypno Disc. But in the heat final Knightmare 2 scored some hits on Firestorm but eventully got flipped out of the arena. Firestorm through to the series semi finals!
Heat 5 winners : Firestorm (1)
Heat 6 was too quick in every fight. Chaos 2, seeded 2nd got both of its opponents out of the arena in its first round melee; however 101 was the first to go and was eliminated. Dantomkia, seeded 10th also did very well by ending Pussycat's shot at the RGW title. The cat was flipped out yet again. In the sumo basho, the final quarter finals assured that Robo-zilla 2 and Panic Attack made it to the semi-final stage of the sumo basho, joining Armed and Tornado. Back into round 2, the Harvester got flipped out by Chaos 2 in 2 seconds! Chaos 2 accomplised this achievement previously against Champion but did it again! Dantomkia also made it to the final by taking out Dark Angel which was another upset as Dark Angel's potential in RGW was again not shown. But the shock was in the heat final, Chaos 2 went out of the arena yet again! Dantomkia going through to the series semi-finals!
Heat 6 winners : Dantomkia (10)
Heat 7 saw the return of seed number 5, Spawn Extreme and the most powerful flipper never dissapointed as it showed no mercy again X-Terminator and Sesmic Crush even Matilda and Shunt, plus Refbot saw themselves outside of the arena! Champion also was a shocker, taking out the Italian favourite : The Enermy From Below. The Sumo Basho semi-finals eliminated Tornado and Panic Attack, leaving the best sumo fight until the next heat! Round 2 then shown the slaughter of Vlad the Impaler, flying out of the arena. Next time they should add wings! And after a tactical battle, Champion gave X-Terminator a somersault over the arena. But the best fight was saved until last, Spawn Extreme had a close shave against Champion, eventully throwing the 12th seeds out of the arena. Spawn Extreme was one of the favourites to continue its awesome run!
Heat 7 winners : Spawn Extreme (5)
In the final heat, Panic Attack returned proving why they were seeded 6th, surving with Bigger Brother. Wheely Big Cheese, seeded 14 was yet to attempt to get a rematch with Panic Attack after their encounter from the last season but Scourge flipped Wheely Big Cheese out, Tough as Nails also went through. Then the awesome sumo basho final began but Robo-zilla claimed the title after showing Armed why their upgrading beast of a robot was changed from the last wars. Back in round 2, Panic Attack claimed victory against Tough as Nails. And Scourge flew out against Bigger Brother! Panic Attack led to all expectations and defeated Bigger Brother, showing no brotherly love. Panic Attack through to the series semi-finals!
Heat 8 winners : Panic Attack (6)
The semi-finals then emerged.... only 4 robots would survive to the ultimate stage of RGW.... The Grand Finale....
In battle 1 of the first semi-finals, Ghost Hunter started strong against the reigning champs Firestorm, but then flipped themselves out of the arena! Ghost Hunter definatly learned a few lessons there! But before the second semi-final eliminator, the featherweights took to the ring and fought for a place in the featherweight final. However it was DisArmed and Mini-Chaos who went through! Then in the final eliminator of the first semi-final, Armed proved victorious over Spawn Extreme as tears appeared for the team who was expected to throw Armed out of the arena!
Semi-finalists qualifying for the Grand Finale : Firestorm (1) & Armed (3)
Then in semi-final 2, Dantomkia got a quick flip against underdogs Dreadblow, but wasn't enough to eliminate the almighty spinning robot that eliminated 2 seeds in the heats, taking out the third being Dantomkia! The featherweights then returned and Venom plus Plunderbird 5 quickly eliminated Dominator 2, meeting DisArmed and Mini-Chaos in the featherweight final! But the final semi-final eliminator was next and proved to be a good one, Razer quickly gripped and grappled Panic Attack before imobilising them after Matilda flipped both of the semi-finalists and it was Panic Attack who could not self-right. Razer were through!
Semi-finalists qualifying for the Grand Finale : Dreadblow & Razer (13)
Following up from the semi-finals, the grand finale was next. In the first eliminator; Dreadblow the unseeded robot who no-one thought was going this far based on it's semi-final fight which nearly made it lose the fight against Dantomkia, fought the reigning champions of the first season who many expected could reach the next round : Firestorm. As the battle started, Dreadblow immediately spun up to it's full capacity and Firestorm had no choice but to stop the hammer spinning by charging head on from activation. Although at first Firestorm seemed more aggressive as they attempted to get underneath Dreadblow's ground clearance and flip them however Dreadblow had enough space to continue to spin their 60kg bar and as a result Firestorm were pummeled by the blade resulting in the entire robot being flipped on it's side. As Firestorm attempted to retrieve their flipping arm back after they got wedged on the arena floor by Dreadblow and Dead Metal, Refbot gave Firestorm a chance to get it's flipper back and Firestorm selfrighted in style. As by this stage it was neck and neck between the two excellent finalists, Dreadblow gave a final blow to Firestorm which ended the first champion of Robot's Great War's run in Season 2.0. Firestorm Were Out.
Then in the second eliminator, The third seeds Armed who entered the final as favourites for it's signature design on Robot's Great War. However the thirteenth seeds Razer had fought an excellent run into Robot's Great War : Season 2.0 by defeating Obelisk, 5th seeds Tornado and the 6th Seeds Panic Attack. They were determined to beat another high seeding in order to get the final battle. As soon as Activate was called both robots charged at each other as if they were jousting, but this was the jousting of the best two robots in RobotsGreatWar2's opinion as the second eliminator begun strongly; Armed attempted to move around Razer using it's Speed to avoid Razer's Crushing Claw. However Razer's experience in Robot Wars had given it the oppitunity to grab Armed where it wanted to, resulting in a massive ammount of damage for Armed. However Armed came back into the fight strongly, lifting Razer over more than once and eventually Razer resulted in losing the fight most embarassingly : Breaking down. As refbot counted Razer out, In RobotsGreatWar2's mind only Ian Lewis could do was look away as Razer was deemed imobile and fortuantely the house robots did not give much punishment as Armed flipped Sgt Bash over. The next battle was the Featherweight's Grand Final match between Mini Chaos, Venom, DisArmed and Plunderbird. The fight ended out with Venom the winner but the best momment of that battle was Matilda flipping DisArmed out of the arena using her tusks. Following on to that, the annual season rumble began between Chaos 2, Hypno Disc, Bigger Brother, Warlord, Wheely Big Cheese and Dragoon. Although it seemed throughout the chaos of the battle (bad pun I realise) Chaos 2 seemed the stronger robot, disposing of Warlord, Wheely Big Cheese and Hypno Disc but eventually was caught by Dragoon and the new robot's crushing claw caused enough damage to immobilise Chaos 2 before finishing off Bigger Brother. Moving on to the playoff, Razer seeded 13th had repaired what damage the robot recieved aswell as Firestorm repairing itself ready to regain some honour. But Firestorm could not repair all damage for the playoff as soon as activate was sounded, Razer immediately caught Firestorm and caused enough damage in several attacks to render the ex-champions out of the grand finale completely. Many fans of Firestorm were severely upset as a result of Firestorm's poor effort in the grand finale but many were proud for Razer as a robot that could of had an unlucky run as seed 13, instead got 3rd place furfilling a place in the top 3 of Season 2.0. Then there could be only one amazing fight left : The grand final battle itself between Dreadblow and Armed. Armed simply could not lift Dreadblow over, finding it difficult to find some purchase underneath the 160kg walker. Dreadblow and Armed eventually were locked together with Armed's lifting forks trapped in the weapon of Dreadblow however, as Armed pulled away to come and attack Dreadblow again, Dreadblow's immense blade ripped the forks off before giving another fatal smash that would render Armed second to Dreadblow and second in Robot's Great War : Season 2.0. However Armed was continuously mauled by Dreadblow's power which personified it's awesome power in RGW. No-one in RGW was not afraid of that spinning weapon. Dreadblow was considered to be the most destructive robot in Fan Made Robot Wars and furfilled this later in 2010 by recieving the award from the FMRW community.
Winners : Dreadblow
