August 1, 2012 in Slideshow by Eric Menees

Texas Torque headed up to Austin, Texas, for the 2nd annual Texas Robot Roundup, aiming to defend their titles as Tournament and Skill Match champions. Seeding second following the qualifying matches, Texas Torque paired up with team 148 Robowranglers and team 2833 Roboscorpions. After fighting through the quarter-finals and the semi-finals, they lost to the 1st seed alliance of team 118 Robonauts, team 624 CRyptonite, and team 457 Grease Monkeys in the final rounds. Outside of the main competition, Texas Torque and CRyptonite teamed up for the Mentor Matches, where alliances are comprised of two teams and mentors are given complete control of the robots. Together with a mentor from team 231 High Voltage, they defeated all of their competitors and took home the title of Mentor Match champions. We look forward to next year’s competition!
