I'm guessing the >10,000 km distance and the language barrier didn't help.

KOB reminds me of a mixture of old RW and new BB. I enjoyed that way more than the UK vs ROTW special form season 10 of Robot Wars. Some nice(ly copied) designs in there. I never was a fan of Razer but Spectre looks really awesome.
Looking forward to Tanshe as it still looks to me like Beta had sex with a Protal turret.
I'm glad they cut down the instant slowmos after the first few fights as that was kinda annoying after a short while. I assume KOB is a pure single elimination tourney which is really nice to see as I prefer those over the Reboot Wars format.

I wasn't a big fan of the pauses when counting out and general pauses, whether it be for a potential comedic effect or suspense building which I didn't understand due to a language barrier. The bots were pretty cool with Spectre being my favourite out of the bots, followed by.... Zhuge.

i liked it, i liked how the arena looked its like robogames, battlebots, and robot wars combined....but the dramatic pauses isnt needed.

Great White vs Spin Doctor is probably gonna be the fight of the series, that was intense.
