Robot fighting championship

This is robot fighting
recharged

FightFest is a brand-new fighting robot championship for students in the UK, presented by Labman. Those aware of the classic British TV show Robot Wars will be familiar with the premise of the competition: robots compete to immobilise their opponents by any means necessary in a bulletproof arena.

Proving you have the skills to make it in the robotics industry and for demonstrating the desire to have a good time with engineering, Labman doesn’t think there’s a better way.

FightFest 2021

The first year of FightFest was amazing to say the least. Watch the full film here, read our press release, or watch every individual fight.

FightFest 2021 ran a match-up based competition for a field of 16 robots. Robots were divided into four groups and fought every other member of their group 1v1, for a total of three fights.

The day was split into 3 rounds of fights, with every robot fighting once in each round, followed by the finals.

  • 3 points were scored for a knockout win
  • 2 for a win via judges' decision
  • 1 for a loss
  • 0 for a no-show.

The 4 robots with the best scores from their qualifying fights entered the knockout finals to compete for the individual title and a share of the prize money. If tied on points, the winning record between the two tied robots determined who went through to the finals.
