IMO they shouldn't stop rounds early

One Bot beats the heck out of another Bot disabling it ( knock out or a knock down in boxing) then judges end the round early ?

They should let the first bot beat on the broken one until the round is over. Then have the 20 min for repairs.

I came on here looking to see if anyone else had said that after watching Thunderskull vs Brimstone. Doesn't make any sense. Why stop the round when one team is beating the other into submission? Isn't that the point of this?

If a round stops early in boxing, it's usually because it's a knockout. They're treating knockouts like they are opened gashes that can be treated by a doctor during the fight.

We have been saying the same thing! Stopping the round early is unfair to the robot that is beating the other one.
