Round of 24: BRONCO vs WITCH DOCTOR AND SHAMAN. by sgtjack2016 Round of 24: BRONCO vs WITCH DOCTOR AND SHAMAN. by sgtjack2016
Right off the bat, Bronco got off to a quick start scoring a flip on Witch Doctor, but it quickly righted itself. Shaman then got underneath Bronco and started using its flamethrower. Bronco used its flipper to escape but then drove itself into the wall, where its flipper got stuck underneath. While they could've waited for the bot to be counted out by the referee, they instead used this opportunity to strike. Shaman sprayed fire on Bronco just as Witch Doctor struck it with its blade. This proved to be fatal, as Bronco was set free and quickly flipped Witch Doctor again, shoving onto the screws just when it righted itself, and was stuck on the wall with no means of getting off.

Left out of the TV broadcast was a miscommunication whereby a rule was passed to Witch Doctor's team that allowed them back into the fight if they had been on top of the arena barrier. However, when Trey and one of Team Witch Doctor's team members went into the arena to free Witch Doctor, they were told that the rule only applied if the robot was caught on top of the screws within the first minute. After three takes of reseting the clock to before the timeout, the match resumed but with the main robot out, Shaman was unable to keep the match going and the multibot was counted out and Bronco advanced to the round of 16. The game wasn't over for Witch Doctor & Shaman however, as they were awarded one of 4 wild cards, allowing them to advance to the round of 16 as well. - Written by a fandom user.
