Norwalk Havoc seeks to hold fun and exciting Robot Combat Events. Our goal is to continue to foster and grow this amazing community of hobbyists and elevate the sport of Robot Combat. All of our events are live-streamed on the internet and we seek to deliver production values on par with a live sporting event. Over the long term, our goal is to build an online following that will generate revenue to allow us to host more events and expand the sport.
Our events are grouped into annual seasons. Seasons last 1 year. Each season will consist of 6 to 4 open tournaments, and the top 4 winners of each of the tournaments will be invited back to fight in the finals event held in December of the calendar year. The tournaments are double-elimination style ensuring all competitors who enter to fight get to fight at least 2 matches.
See the full rules set here:
- All robots must have a weapon lock that prevents any spinning weapons from moving outside of the cage.
- All robots must have a way to turn off power without disassembling the robot.
- All robots must pass a radio fail safe test.
Depending on the current state of re-opening we expect to be able to offer spectators the chance to come watch the matches live. We will make a final call on spectators on May 8th. We plan to open our doors for spectators at 9:30a. We plan to charge $10.00 for all day access for all spectators over the age of 2. Robot combat is dangerous and there will be weapons and dangerous things around. We will ask you sign a release prior to entering the space.
- Food trucks in the parking lot.
- On site concessions
- A collectable badge that allows for all day re-entry
- A staff guided tour of the pits
- Time to hang out with the competitors post fight
This event will be streamed live. Come see us at Norwalk May 2021
