Its interesting. "Can detach from each other, but chose not to for the whole fight." I guess that falls into tactics rather than rules. Similar to keeping one half of a cluster out of the way to bring in only if the other half fails to win.
What's your thinking, Peter? I'm guessing some sort of tether so one half can rescue the other from the pits.by pulling them out?

I thought any discussion on the actual robot should be moved out of the rules section so I have put it in my fleaweight thread.
