    Wondered how people in general are finding life in general now that spinners are at every event? Is it getting expensive quick? Are the usual suspects still turning up to shows etc?

    It's true, Extreme Robots run them at their shows, but it's an option if you want to fight them.... an option which isn't taken up by many.

    Will confess, plenty of trepidation when fightiing them but I've yet to see someone go mad with a MW/HW spinner unless talked about before the fight. If my robot breaks, well I didn't build it right. The Honey Badger exploding at Manchester 2018 was a bit expensive though. Robits Live! Still don't allow them to my knowledge.

    Oh cool ok. So there's still loads of heavy fights without spinners?

    Yeah, Robots Live don't have any spinners, as with most Extreme Robots whiteboard fights. The main competition bracket for XR (while increasing by the looks) is normally a little small. To be honest, you're best off designing with them as a consideration at least. It's funny, I'd prefer fighting a spinner than a flipper
