Yeah I'd like to see them climb in sophistication, be autonomous too; maybe make them find each other on a lumpy battlefield, via vision or something. It would be fun to make active sensor denial weapons, to blind lasers or cameras. It was just hardware. I think to fit into their original niche, they need to be real, physical robots for most people to care, and unfortunately given the nature of the competition it seems unlikely that autonomous logic is going to play a big role.

Not sure the name. On the other hand, it's undeniable that watching things catch fire, get mangled, or be sacrificed in bold gambits is part of the fun.
In my opinion, Battlebots ended because the ruleset created an optimal robot "spin as much of your mass as possible as fast as possible and hit the other robot before they do the same" and it became boring to watch the two resulting fights: Control your own Battlebot and try to knock the pieces off your opponent.
