A moral question...

So It's the final match of the regional you are attending, and your team going to nationals depends on winning this match. One of your alliance partners (team A) is already headed to Nationals, and the other team on your alliance (B) needs this win to go just like you do.

The last 30 seconds come around, but the score is 2 points in the opposing alliance's favor. The opposing alliance's ramp bot suffers a pneumatic failure, and can't lift their bots at all. 20 second left. You're jumping for joy, and you start screaming at your alliance partners to head back and get on your lift... Team B loads up fine, but team A refuses to come back. At 10 seconds team A starts to come back, and get halfway on your lift... when for whatever reason, they get stuck. Their robot is located such that if you engage the lift; it will probably catapult their bot into the air, causing them to land on their arm/manipulator and ruining it beyond what can be fixed during a fix-it window. If you don't raise the lift... you lose the regional, and both you and team B can't go to Nationals.


One second left. What do you do?
