I want to use many other peices for my robot but Botball limits us and sometimes restrains us from using certain pieces. Why is this?

The reason for Botball limiting us on pieces is because they want to make it a fair game for every team, whether they don't have access to excessive pieces or not.
If there is any other opinions on this, please respond. I would like to know.

Thanks!

Well they limit it for a challenge. If you have any unlimited amount of pieces it kills the challenge. I enjoy a good challenge, if there is no challenge then there is no usage of the brain. The brain is a very powerful muscle that should be used with respect, and if you do not work out your brain it does not grow. You need your brain to grow, so you can learn. Hope this helped!

@Ben jamin': I completely agree with you Ben. If unlimited pieces were allowed, it would definitely kill the challenge and, just like I said earlier, it would be unfair to some teams because they do not have the access to certain pieces or funds.

Botball is too limiting. They should allow us to use any types of material.

Like it was stated before, it cost too much for people who are not as rich as you to do get the parts. Besides, the limitation forces you to stretch your mind and besides, everybody is using the same parts so consequentially, it is a even playing field. Even though I wish for more parts, the current parts are good enough to stretch your mind.

Please, guys, THINK!!! Stop being enchanted by the adult's wish of honey and sunshine for their kids! There are stupid questions. "What is one plus one plus your girlfriend." ~ Example of a math whiz talking to a donut. Now, that is a stupid question. Now, please, think!
