Knock Off White
|Weapon Operator||Eric Wrigley|
|Foam Bot Drivers||Mary Chimenti and Dustin Esswein|
|Weapon Drive||Castle 2028|
Knock Off White is Bots FC's second entry into the 30lb class after Emulsifier. The bot first appeared at Motorama in 2018. It last fought at the 2020 Motorama event, finishing in the Top 4 before losing to its teammate Emulsifier. Knock Off White also took home the "Sick Cloud Bruh" award for causing the most lipo fires at the event.
Knock Off White did not compete in 2021 at Norwalk Havoc as it remained overweight. After the weight rules changed in 2022 to allow for 45lb shuffler bots, Knock Off White was finally able to compete at the July 16th 2022 event.
Knock Off White's first fight was against the vertical spinner Phenomenon. In this fight, the bot struggled with a weapon issue with the bot only able to fire at seemingly random intervals. With the weapon only intermittently working, Knock Off White was forced to wedge Phenomenon around the arena. It ultimately won the fight in a Judges Decision but no one was celebrating that win.
After the fight, the team furiously worked to figure out why the weapon was not working. A few hours later, it was determined that interference was occurring between the weapon and drive transmitters. The team's only option was to put both the weapon and drive controls on the same transmitter.
Knock Off White then fought Touro Feather in the winner's bracket final. With the weapon now working, the team was able to knock out Touro Feather by getting it stuck on the arena wall.
After making its way through the loser's bracket, Knock Off White then faced Touro Feather again with the title on the line. At this point in the tournament, original Foam Bot driver Mary Chimenti was forced to leave the event early. In need of a new driver, Bots FC turned to Depth Charge Captain Dustin Esswein, himself a former member of Bots FC having competed with Cluster Flock at the 2018 Robogames.
In the final fight, Knock Off White was able to land hit after hit on Touro Feather, at one point getting its hammerhead stuck in Touro Feather's baseplate. Having controlled the fight throughout, Knock Off White won the 30lb title in a unanimous decision.
Knock Off White will now compete alongside its teammate Emulsifier at the 2022 Championships for the World Championship.
