History Edit

Rocket City Robot Assault Edit

Dark Steel and Sparky collide

Dark Steel (Stainless) and Sparky collide violently causing Sparky to be immobilised

Dark Steel (Stainless) had its first match of the tournament against flail-armed cage-spinner Sparky. Dark Steel charged towards its opponent face first immediately missing as it violently slammed into the wall before attacking once again getting slammed into another wall by Sparky's weapon, Dark Steel was stuck on the wall before Sparky came in for another attack and its opponent managed to free itself enough to keep Sparky back with its tail before escaping and slamming into Sparky again sending it flying and buckling one of the skirts on Dark Steel, Dark Steel then missed another ram but managed to push Sparky to the centre of the arena where it became clear that Dark Steel had managed to completely buckle the cage on Sparky as it awkwardly hobbled about before getting slammed into the wall again and immobilised with the cage buckled onto the arena wall giving Dark Steel (Stainless) the win.
