Quite the opposite. I would suggest you read the rules.

They have evolved over the last 20 years and have somewhat settled where they are for good reasons.

Everyone I talk to about Robot wars that has not been involved with it before suggests some of the same things; liquids or adhesives, EMP devices, entangling weapons, untethered projectiles, radio jamming, etc. I have to patiently explain to each of these people that they're illegal, and for good reason - in the same way that every sport ends up with rules to ensure fairness, good sportsmanship and an entertaining show for both players and fans. It's not to stifle creativity, its simple experience that teaches you this is the way it should be.

Is it school holidays or something?

One of my bots had a nasty habit of tangling up Jaemus' drum bot with its defensive spikes. It was annoying to everyone involved when it happened and the EO could have said at any time my bot was disqualified due to entanglement devices. Laughing

duh yes cobra
you would think i'd remember that name lol.

The reasons for the rules are to make for an interesting competition.

Imagine gladiatorial combat in the Roman arena.
Now give the competitors glocks.

Its going to go *BANG* *THUMP* game over.
not very exciting.

Hmmm... I seem to remember seeing an old Roman Gladiator movie where one of the competitors had a net? Smile
