Angry Goat Robotics is a fantasy robotics team lead by Me, Gabe. That's right, I spend my free time pretending I have the money and ability to build combat robots. It came into being in early September, and has been not overly terrible ever since. The team's creator enjoys naming his robots after various mythological goat-esque creatures. everyone needs a theme, right?
Currently a relatively short history: Edit
Gabe was drawn into fantasy combat robotics by the /r/Hammerfall Robotics Competition, in which his first robot, Chimera was entered. It was... okay... overall, making up for its design flaws with good strategy. Excited by moderate early-on success, he decided to enter in Ruination: the Contagion. as it turns out, some of the team's designs weren't exactly terrible, with Cuddle Time! making the Lightweight Finals.
Angry Goat Robotics is currently entered in FRR: Backlash with Venice Queen, Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr, Chimera V2, and Khnum. Other than Chimera bringing the whole team down (at 7-4 :v ), all robots held the same 9-2 record going into the knockout rounds.

Trivia/fun facts: Edit
-Gabe only recently became a fan of combat robotics due to the new battlebots TV series.
-Angry Goat Robotics is goat themed because goats are fantastic animals, far superior to other farm herd animals, such as the llama or the sheep
-Both Cuddle Time! and Buzzkill have been extremely lucky robots, winning many close decisions, as well as beating many powerful horizontal spinners despite their low body armor. as they were both made within the same render, Gabe now considers that render to be of high luck.
-Thrice the bridesmaid in the Lightweight division, Angry Goat Robotics has suffered two of these defeats at the hand of Team Ignition.
