a) Warriorbots may have elements that unfold once the Warriorbot is deployed, but these must be able to fold up so that the whole Warriorbot fits within this space and cannot be attached afterwards.

4. All bots must be able to move under their own power.

Bouts

The following rules are the basic rules governing the bouts fought by Warriorbots. Each Warriorbot is controlled by one individual who is called a ‘Bot Master’ who drives the Warriorbot.

1. Warriorbots bouts last for two minutes.

2. Once a bout has commenced Bot Masters may not touch their own or any other Warriorbot in the arena.

3. A Warriorbot is eliminated from the competition if:
a) It becomes immobilised (cannot move under remote control).
b) It ends up in the pit for any reason
c) It is knocked out of the arena
d) If, in the opinion of the adjudicator, the Bot Master has broken the rules or behaved in an unsportsmanlike fashion.
