Battle of the machines with ground-breaking Robot Combat League

(The Philippine Star) - January 6, 2016 - 9:00am

MANILA, Philippines – Taking ultra-modern times into a whole new level is Robot Combat League, a one-of-a-kind game of wits and brute force. By combining tremendous human will and the super strength of machines, it is an ultimate showcase of first-class action. With 12 equally-deserving teams, each composed of a “robo-jockey” — the fighter, and a “robo-tech” — the robotics engineer.

Wearing exo-suits allows the human controllers dictate the machine’s movements, these fighters crash, collide and basically take to destroy each other to provide exhilarating action to viewers. The participants come from extremely diverse backgrounds — witness a race car driver, a National Guard pilot, even an Olympian (among others) take the stage.

There are a dozen robots, each with its unique look and power features. Each fight consists of three rounds, with the winner advancing to the next match.

Hosted by Chris Jericho, a professional wrestler, Robot Combat League premieres Jan. 11 at 7:55 p.m. on AXN.

Awaiting the grand champion is $100,000.

AXN is seen on Cable Link Channel 38, Cignal Digital TV Channel 61, Global Destiny Cable Channel 61, Dream Channel 20, Gsat Channel 12, SKYCable Channel 49.
