Subject to Change Without Reason's Season 3.0 appearance.

Subject to Change Without Reason was a middleweight robot built by Randy Eubanks that competed from Season 1.0 to Season 3.0 of BattleBots. It was a silver robot originally armed with a pickaxe that was removed and left as a wedge, as it did not work. For Season 3.0, it was painted red and two small rending spikes were placed on the top, removing its ability to run inverted fully due to the rendering spikes keeping the front wheels in the air. It performed decently in BattleBots, reaching the televised rounds in every season it competed, but never went further than the round of 16. It was replaced by Goldie, which participated in just one season.

Subject to Change Without Reason vs. Pressure Drop

S.T.C.W.R.'s Season 1.0 appearance.

S.T.C.W.R. gets hit by Pressure Drop after the fight ended.

Subject to Change Without Reason's first match of the season was against Pressure Drop, Pressure Drop slowly moved out of its square and S.T.C.W.R. started slamming into Pressure Drop. Pressure Drop attempted to hit S.T.C.W.R. with its pickaxe, but missed and S.T.C.W.R. had fried its Vantec speed controller and stopped moving. Pressure Drop started walking slowly towards S.T.C.W.R., but when the buzzer sounded, Derek Young ignored the buzzer, walked Pressure Drop into position, and fired Pressure Drop's weapon twice, the latter of which struck S.T.C.W.R.'s top. Despite the warning Young received, Pressure Drop advanced to the next round and S.T.C.W.R. was eliminated from the tournament.
"That was done after I was dead for at least like a minute. The buzzer went off, but he claimed "oh, the red light wasn't on and they told me to keep hitting you". Bull****"
— Randy Eubanks showing immense aggravation following his match against Pressure Drop and highlighting the dent on the top of his robot made by his opponent's robot after the buzzer sounded.

S.T.C.W.R. got off to a good start, getting underneath Complete Control, driving it to the ramrods and then the killsaws, which sent Complete Control flying. S.T.C.W.R. got underneath Complete Control again, driving it to the screws, until it was finally caught by the clamping arm of Complete Control, lifting S.T.C.W.R. by its corner. S.T.C.W.R. was then driven to the killsaws, damaging its wedge and preventing all but one of its drive wheels from touching the floor. Complete Control then finally caught S.T.C.W.R. where it was driven to the killsaws, which did not operate for some reason, then to the pulverizer and finally flipping S.T.C.W.R. on its back. Then Complete Control tossed the incapacitated S.T.C.W.R. again and S.T.C.W.R. was finally counted out. Complete Control won by KO and S.T.C.W.R. was eliminated from the tournament again.
