Team Yellow Alert began competing on ARC in 2006 and has been inconsistently active from 2006-2014, entering only 7 tournaments and skipping most of the others. All robots from the team are designed and computer-animated by Nick Schuch (Spatula).
As of January 2014 it is the 7th highest ranked team on ARC, with 1 championship, 3 runner ups, and 11 additional playoff placements.
-First team to field a successful walker (Influenza, which became the first walker to qualify for the playoffs in August, 2013 for LORE).
-The first team to skip a full week of RPs and still make the playoffs for a season.
-Previously held the record for the longest RP ever submitted (1788 words). Surpassed by Team Zlayerz in Ruination: The Omen.
