IRI Rule Changes (likely final version)

Below are the (most likely) rule changes for the 2018 IRI.

There are in addition to the standard changes of:
+5 pounds weight
4 team elimination alliances
Draft 1-8, 1-8, 8-1
No inspection unless referee believe significant robot rules violation

2018 IRI Rule Changes
Changes shown between the **, in italics, and underlined.

G05 - Don’t overextend yourself.
ROBOTS may not extend more than 16 in. beyond their FRAME PERIMETER. This rule doesn’t apply to a ROBOT fully within its PLATFORM ZONE during the ENDGAME. **Momentary, minimal excursions (approximately less than 3 seconds and less than 6 inches) outside of the PLATFORM ZONE during ENDGAME will not result in violations of this rule.**

G09. Launching POWER CUBES is okay, but keep it short.
A ROBOT is not permitted to launch POWER CUBES except:
B. When any part of its BUMPERS are contacting a FENCE, **either directly or transitively through a POWER CUBE**, or any part of the ROBOT is intersecting the vertical planes defined by the SWITCH FENCE, and it is attempting to place a POWER CUBE on the nearest PLATE of that FENCE’s SWITCH

G22. One POWER CUBE per ROBOT.
ROBOTS may not control more than one (1) POWER CUBE at a time.
B. “Herding” (Intentionally pushing a POWER CUBE to a desired location or direction) is in violation of this rule. **This rule does not apply to a ROBOT breaking the plane of their own Exchange Zone.**

G25. PLATES are moved by POWER CUBES, not ROBOTS.
Except via the weight of placed POWER CUBES, ROBOTS may not directly or transitively cause or prevent the movement of PLATES **in a way that is beneficial to their own alliance (examples include holding a PLATE at neutral or through holding a PLATE in a manner which earns their alliance points). If a REFEREE or FTA determines damage is occurring to the SCALE, the offending ROBOT will be DISABLED.**


That's All.

Re: IRI Rule Changes (likely final version)

Looks good to me. Hopefully the Chezy Champs rules are similar.

Im not sure if this change to rule G09 fully solves the excessive launch penalties. It says nothing about a cube breaking the plane of the fence but not in contact with it. Technically that would still be considered illegal. Wasn't sure if this was on purpose or not but thought I would mention it.
