Team Yellow Alert began competing on the Robotwars.co.uk forum in 2001, and has been active in vaporbot tournaments almost continuously since then, shifting over to FRA in 2003 and then ARC in 2006, where it has maintained a presence ever since. All robots from the team are designed and computer-animated by Nick Schuch (BEES).
As of May 2018, excluding very old FRA tournaments, it has 4 championships, 3 runner-ups, and 38 playoff placements.
Annoying Box Rush - Ruination: The Omen 2013, Reign of Steel 2014
Influenza - Reign of Steel 2014
Parasite - Battlebots: Hammerfall 2015
Other Achievements: Edit
-First team to field a successful walker on ARC (Influenza, which became the first walker to qualify for the playoffs in August, 2013 for LORE, and then the first walker to win a title in 2014 in Reign of Steel).
-The Differential Fork system for ABR is unique among weaponary, but has shown to be effective.
-Still holds the record for most coin-toss victories.
