More time to think out a strategy and a backup weapon in case we get the chainsaws tangled together.....I like my chances. I think I'm more scared of the McDonalds kitchen than I am of crush at this point.
I've never fought a person with a chainsaw, but I've done many a battle with oak, hackberry, and hedge trees.

Yeah, unless crush is good at throwing chain saws or something, I see a mild advantage going to truebigdog. He's got more time to plan his positioning relative to the deep fryers and the grill and other dangerous stuff.

It's not a huge advantage, but it's an advantage.

an almost even match, minus a bowie knife. if anyone's ever used an older chainsaw, sometimes starting the SOB is like pulling your own teeth. time is the essence. if either combatant has an issue with starting said saw,an optional weapon could be the deciding factor.
also, depends on the day of the week at mcyDs. if it's special sauce day, then all bets are off.

I am dooooomed.

The backup knife is a big advantage for him.

I'm glad I'm not in this tourney..Rainman would give my opponent an M1Abrams, and me a box of toothpicks.

..advantage has to go to TBD, with extra prep time and knife.

First one that figures out how to get to the oil fryer and devise a way to throw it wins.

Need to know which one is fatter and therefore more tempted by the McDonalds around him. He is the loser. I picked against truebigdog, because truebigdog sounds like a fat guy.

If my calculations are correct, your match vs Rockchalk will be match #16 of course I may be off as I'm a little bit busy with this chain saw right now.

truebigdog takes the win and walks off with a supersize order of fries.

Does prep time mean how long to get ready? If so crush would have him killed because it would take another 40secs for him to get going. He would have to switch to knife instantly. Then it comes down to who is fastest.

Does prep time mean how long to get ready?

Per Rain Man (from match #2):
As a clarification to everybody, "prep time" is the time before the match starts where a person enters the venue, learns about the weapons and the starting distance, and learns about any special factors. That gives them time to strategize.

So in this case, mohillbilly is in the arena looking at the robots, learning about his and listopencil's weapons 67 seconds before he is handed his weapon.

46 seconds later (at T minus 19 seconds), listopencil enters the other side of the arena and does his learning.

They then each get their weapons at the same moment.

At this moment I shall raise a beer to my fallen opponent.

To your honor, Crush

Crush and the 41 extra seconds.

Advantage back-up.

Truebigdog FTW.
