do you think we should have rules for safety pulls and safty switches

I think all robots have them and I believe it would take a few seconds to put on mostly all robots.

why?

-this is could give some weapons a 1 hit ko area to hit if there able to get to them

-give new ways to do strategy

-and much more

what would it mean for bot makers

-all bot makers would have to clearly show where there safety switch or pull they must chose of one or the other and must explain if its covered and if so how and how it applies to all rules

-new kinds of bots that target these week areas

what sort of rules should be given to safety switches and pulls (my suggestion you may have some ideas of how to do it differently

-all robots must have them

-they can be covered must be able to asses without using tools

- the armour of the bit covering safety switches or safety pulls is -2 the robots base armour
e.g armour 8 armour that covers the safety witch is 6

- all safety switches or pulls must be contained in about a matchbox sizes area
basically there 2x2/ 3x3 (remember some heavy's are 10x10x5 max or around about there)

these rules aren't fixed and can easily be changed

This is an entirely needless thing to add to the rules.

also its up the rp's and writers wither or not it effects the match we could easily add it and allow people to make there minds if they want to exploit it or not

Artistically they are good as it makes the robots seem more realistic. Rule wise...its bad. Since links have to be pulled out quickly in any event, this would automatically mean that they had an armour stat of 1 or so. This would reduce spinner rps relatively quickly, since one attack would win them the match. Even with armour the spinner would still win in one attack.
