Team Covenant is a fictional robot combat team led by Kody Kunz (That Kode Guy). Team Covenant has been active on the main circuit since 2002 (RW Forum/FRA), but only from 2008 in the Custom Fantasy Leagues.

Team Covenant's official tournaments:

A Brief History[]

Team Covenant started life in 2002 as Team Gore on the Robot Wars Discussion Forum and the Fighting Robots Association fan fic boards respectively. Team Gore, to put it lightly, did not have the best of starts. The only robot of the team that saw moderate success was Wedginator, who has yet to truly compete in the CFL Leagues here. Wedginator racked up a win in Velociraptor's Fanfic Tournament 3, but his success before the forum switch sprouted largely from another major tournament, Fowler Fic War 1, which he came 3rd in. Other robots, such as current robots Killobite and Troubloon, as well as defunct robots like Cosmic Error and Fangorodrim, could barely scrape a win, if that. The switch to the FRA Forum did little to generate success for Team Gore other than placing Wedginator 2nd in the PTT3 pinball. After returning to FRA in 2006, Team Gore managed to slowly earn some success again, with newcomer robots like The Epidemic and Shadow Zone doing well in Fowler Fic War 4. During this period, Team Gore found its way onto the ARC boards, but aside from entering into an eventually cancelled ARC: Backlash, nothing of note happened yet. Finally, in 2008, Team Gore managed to actually win a mini-tournament with Seung Mina (a renamed Destructophobic from 2002, basically a very long wedge), defeating a David Sheppard robot in the final of Liam Eliot's ETC08 tournament on the FRA boards to win.

The tean name change to Zlayerz came about before ARC: Reckoning, and with it came some great success. Wedginator was back to championship calibre, Intrigue and its successors became successful axebots and won Steven McGregor's mini-PTT tournament, and the quality of the stats and pictures had improved greatly. Then Team Zlayerz found its way into its very first ARC competition on the ARC boards. While it was not the best of starts, Shadow Zone Forever caused quite the ruckus upon his rookie season and is now among the robot greats of CFL. Despite this, Kody Kunz feels both Wedginator and Super Gore represent Team Zlayerz better. And represent Wedginator did, finally managing to win Team Zlayerz its first actual major tournament on FRA, Mechanical Maelstrom Season 3.0, written by Lewis Matthews. Wedginator, in its tenth guise (Wedginator X), defeated Eye of Ran II, created by Joey McConnell of Team Picus, in the final. Since then, the FRA Fanfic section has slowed to an alarming crawl, but the current Team Covenant will pick up where they left off, when the section gets going again.

The change to the next team name came about during FRR: No Mercy. The name Zlayerz was wearing thin with Kody and he wished for a name change. He finally settled upon the word covenant, a solemn promise to engage in or refrain from a specified action. There may be confusion due to other members of the community being familiar with the word "covenant", as it has different meanings to them. The redesign of Perseus showcased the first time one of Kody's robots had been branded with the then-new team logo.

There are many robots on Team Covenant that are FRA-only and ARC-only, and sometimes both. Scarab, Perseus, Fulcrum, and especially Shadow Zone Forever are remembered for being Team Covenant's official entry team into the CFL competitions, via ARC: Reckoning. All of them have at least had a facelift since then, and are still waiting to kick bot, among Team Covenant's other numerous creations.

The team is currently undergoing a transition to a new team name: Dissonance-Tek, or D-Tek if you want to use the short form.
