Whoops did well in competition, never failing to reach the at least quarterfinals on all two of its appearances.
RoboGames 2017EditWhoops!'s first match in RG17 was against powerful flipper, HexaDecimator. This match started with Hexy D skidding around the arena due to bad ground clearance. Eventually Hexy D managed to get a flip in on Whoops!, however Whoops! was invertible so it continued moving.
Hexy D then attempted another flip, however it failed, and Whoops! got away. Hexy D gave chase, and pursued Whoops! to the center of the arena, and delivered another flip. Whoops! then started shoving Hexy D around, but Hexy D got away, and promptly got high centered on the arena floor, and was counted out with 1:53 left on the clock.This put it through to the next round where it faced former Robot Wars Series 9 hopefuls Mouse. This match started with Mouse, and Whoops coming out of their squares, Whoops! then shoved Mouse a bit before Mouse lifted Whoops!. However Whoops! eventually got free, and slammed under the front of Mouse before shoving it around, but Mouse got under it again, and attempted a flip.
However, by the time Mouse fired its flipper, Whoops! had already driven over the top of Mouse, and slammed into its rear. Mouse's flipper then jammed, and Whoops! got under, it, and box rushed it, nearly slamming it into the wall.
Whoops! then slammed Mouse around some more, and a part fell out of Mouse, however Mouse was still mobile, and slammed into Whoops!. Mouse then got under Whoops!, and attempted a flip, however once again it missed, and bent its flipper. Whoops! then slammed Mouse around until time ran out, and the match went to a judges decision.
The judges ruled the match 22-11 in favor of Whoops!, meaning that it advanced to the Round of 12 where it faced Last Rites.

Whoops then charged at it, but sustained no real damage aside from some chipped paint, it then shoved Last Rites around before ramming it blade first into the wall. Last Rites then got a good lick in with its blade, creating a gash in the plow of Whoops!, however Last Rites was now on the defensive as Whoops! gave chase, and slammed it into the wall again.

Last Rites then took the rear-left wheels off of Whoops!, but started to suffer strain from the repeated attacks from both sides as Whoops! drove at it again. This caused the bottom panel of Last Rites to fall off, and the wedge of Whoops! to loosen. Whoops! then delivered another charge to Last Rites, this caused Last Rites to propel itself nearly to the ceiling, causing internals to go flying out of both the top, and bottom, and shorting out upon landing. Last Rites then tapped out, giving Whoops! one of the biggest upset victories of the event.
- "OH MY GOD, LAST RITES HAS SHORTED OUT, OH MY GOD LAST RITES HAS SHORTED OUT HES NOT MOVING ANYMORE, COULD THIS BE IT!"
