Question on Starting Zone

You may want to search next time, check here it's been discussed a bit

Yeap, you get to work it out with your alliance, just make sure your in a Red Box if your Red or Blue if your Blue. (Make sure you talk about your autonomous mode with your alliance mates.

Re: Question on Starting Zone

Part of the whole alliance selection and scouting task your team will need to do is to determine optimal starting positions.

Yes, your three 'bots can start from any one of the three boxes.

Just think about what might happen if your chosen best "offensive" bot was in the box closest to your driving stations......you'd get a cross-over situation at the beginning of the game.

BUT......you also must consider what the robots will potentially be able to do in autonomous mode. Again, you don't want to be "tripping" all over each other.

So, there's a lot to think about besides the robot itself.
