The news reporter of WRDE appears mostly at the end of each single player or demo match, announcing the outcome of the fight followed by a screenshot of the last impact from the victor.
He sympathizes or intimidates the competitors depending on how much vitality they had remaining at the end of the fight.
If you lose a match with little to no damage to your opponent, the reporter will make ridiculous remarks about you.
- "I'll sum this one up for all you sports fans in two words: TRACK MEET. [The opponent] ran circles around, and sometimes over, [the player] and [their] ill-fated [HAR]. [The player] should start making bets against [themselves] if [they're] gonna take dives like this one."
- "My, my, my... Who had control of that [HAR]! Oh, it was [the player]. Well, I have some advice for you, [player]. Duck, block, dodge, call in sick, do something other than take hit after hit from that [other HAR]."
- "Whew, [your opponent] really tore into [you]. [You] should probably take that [HAR] back to the training field. All I can say to [you] is get some practice. That [HAR] won't win without your help."
- "[The opponent] really knows what [they're] doing out there, or maybe [the player] simply has no clue. Regardless, this was a blowout. There were a few lucky shots by [the player], but most of the time the match looked like this."
If you lose a match while your opponent took half as much damage, the reporter will announce the match as unfortunate.
- "They must be pretty short on pilots these days to recruit the likes of [you]. I could have blocked this last hit in my sleep. Hey, maybe that's the problem. Somebody wake up [the player]."
- "A good performance by [the player], but obviously not enough to rival [the opponent's] [HAR] [The player's] prowess is obvious, but this shot really shows what a [HAR] can do in the hands of [the opponent]."
- "Hmm.. [The player] showed some guts in the Stadium against [the opponent] tonight, but just didn't show enough skill. [The player] stood [their] ground courageously, but it was eventually left lying on it. Well [player], there's always tomorrow."
- "Ohh, a bad day in the life of [the player]. Well, I'm sure [the opponent] won't shed any tears over [their] loss. [The player] landed some pretty good shots, but was worn down by ground shaking shots like this one."
If you lose a match with your opponent having only a small amount of vitality left, the reporter will sympathize.
- "Folks, you've gotta feel a little sorry for [the player] tonight. If it weren't for [the opponent] landing... A few lucky blows like this one, I think [the player] would have pulled this one off."
- "Nice try [player]. This was about as close as they come, folks. [The opponent] must be thankful for ... Blows like this one. It was shots like this that kept [the opponent] just a half-step ahead of [the player]."
- "Wow, this was a close one. [The player] and [their opponent] traded blows in the Stadium until... [The opponent], fatigued and stumbling, landed this, the final blow. The next time these two meet, it'll be some rematch."
If you win a match with little vitality left, the reporter will announce the outcome as a surprising feeling.
- "Now this was an even match-up if I've ever seen one. If they fought this match tomorrow, [the opponent] could just as easily win. [The player's] final, stumbling blow ended the match in what could only be called a fortunate victory."
- "[The player] and [the opponent] were evently matched. The [HAR] of [the opponent] will spend some time in the shop tonight! These two fought practically blow for blow until [the player] finally nailed [the opponent] with this well-timed shot."
- "I sure hope [the player] and [the opponent's] repair crews didn't plan any parties tonight. With the mediocre performance by [the player], [their] [HAL] repair crew will be stuck in the shop almost as long as [their] opponent's."
- "[The player] fought a respectable battle with [the opponent] and was victorious. Not half bad [player]! They both did some damage, but [the player] ended the contest with this shot."
If you win a match with nearly a half amount of damage taken, the reporter will announce the fight without any personal remarks.
- "...And in the arena tonight, [the opponent] gave [the player] a run for [their] money, but came up a few thousand credits short. [The opponent] held in there for a while, but [the player] simply out-performed [them] with moves like this."
- "All you arena junkies out there got a pretty good show at the Stadium. [The opponent] fought with skill, but not enough... ...to put down [the player's] hulking [HAR]. Hey, maybe next time, [opponent]."
- "The crowd cheered as [the opponent] was defeated in the remarkable showdown with [the player]. [The player] pleased excited onlookers with respectable skill. Here's the hit that ended the match."
- "The Stadium was rocked tonight by the impressive [player]. [the opponent] needs some more practice before [they] can defeat the likes of [them]. [HAR] parts littered the floor after repeated blows like this. Almost makes me feel sorry for [the opponent's] repair crew."
If you win a match taking little to no damage, the reporter makes a witty comment at how one-sided the fight was.
- "[The player] was looking good this evening. [Their] [HAR] left the Stadium with only a few scars from [their] overmatched opponent. [The opponent] showed some pretty pathetic fighting skills, and [the player] took advantage of [them]. Just look at this hit."
- "[The player] showed incredible abilities with the [HAR] as [the opponent] became little more than a punching bag. This one, as well as other outstanding hits, have sent [the opponent] back to the shop for a while."
- "Whoa, this challenger meant business tonight. [The player] could show the old pros a thing or two about that [HAR]. Check this action out. This is how [the opponent] looked the whole match: beaten, bruised, and bewildered."
- "For all you folks that enjoy an evenly matched battle, I hope you didn't pay for the match at the Stadium. ...But for all you who like the occasional one-sided masochistic pouncing, then watch out for [the player]."
