King of Bots UK 2018EditMicroswitch's first match was against Calabash Brothers, and Tempest, for this match Microswitch ran its drum spinner. This match started with all three robots spinning up to full speed. Calabash Bros got a minor shot in on Microswitch which then attacked Tempest, sending it into the air.
However this left Microswitch open for an attack from the Chinese machine which first launched it, and then Tempest into the air. Calabash Brothers then attacked Microswitch again, flipping it, and breaking one side of its drive.Following this Calabash Brothers launched Tempest into the corner, before attacking Microswitch again. Surprisingly Microswitch was still moving after this, and Calabash Brothers went after Tempest again.
This resulted in a colossal hit which flipped Calabash Brothers, and sent Tempest reeling. However after the Chinese machine righted itself it became clear that there was something wrong with itas it was having problems delivering hits like before. Microswitch then got stuck on the pit, and Tempest pressed the pit release, but Microswitch escaped just in time.
Calabash Brothers then delivered a few hits to Tempest, but nearly drove into the pit itself. After this one more hit was delivered by the Chinese entry before cease was called. Calabash Brothers won the match on a judges decision, meaning that Microswitch lost its first battle.
