I may be the only one, but I think that if a bot competes in the Desperado, it should be out for the rest of the prelims. Sorry, minotaur, but you weren't "second place", you were first loser.
t was so cute watching Kraken's minibot (Willy?) try to take on Son of Whyatchi, and SOW was like "do you feel anything???"
There's several other horizontal spinners, including Tombstone, of course. Next season, a number of builders will come up with counter-measures against vertical spinners and we'll see something else dominate.
