I know Whyachi were selling some SoW bits a while back.. Is this where they ended up? or a full-blown clone?

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.
