Alph was a Middleweight robot that competed at BattleBots Rochester R3 in 2005. It was a Red, two wheeled robot with a dustpan wedge that it would use to trap its opponents while an articulated saw arm would come down on them, and cut into their armor.
Despite managing to reach the quarterfinals of its only competition, Alph did not do well in BattleBots, only winning one match, but losing two.
BattleBots Rochester R3After receiving a bye in the first round Alph's first match was against Falcon. This fight started with Falcon spinning up, and immediately bending the corner of Alph's dustpan wedge. Falcon then delivered several more hits, destroying the dustpan wedge even more before nearly flipping Alph, and mangling its saw arm.
After a few more hits Falcon finally flipped the now weaponless Alph, and attacked it some more before Alph tapped out. This meant that Alph was now in the losers bracket where it faced Terminal Velocity. Due to the fact that its saw arm was irreparably damaged by Falcon, Alph had a makeshift wooden grabbing arm equipped for this fight.
Despite this it won this fight after a relatively dull match which consisted mostly of Alph shoving Terminal Velocity all over the BattleBox. Defeating Terminal Velocity meant that Alph was now one of eight Middleweight robots left in the tournament, this meant it was now in the quarterfinals where it faced MoZar. It lost this fight, and was eliminated from the competition.
- Wins: 1
- Losses: 2
