Re: Team Update #18

That seems like a pretty big change pretty late in the season. I realize 99% of the teams probably weren't actually planning on this during build season, but it's entirely possible someone was and is now caught out. I could understand changing the safety rules to require those robots to be disabled, but completely outlawing it with 3/5ths of the competitions gone seems odd. I do understand the logic, it just seems like a pretty big change.

Re: Team Update #18

Would it work to have a ringer between the two stacked robots? The rule says you can't touch other robots but the ringer would be between. It would be fun to see the head ref try to remove the ringer at the end of autonomous.

Re: Team Update #18

I don't like that the ruling has been changed now, after the strategy was actually used, when the very question was asked in the Q/A forum back in January and it was given the go-ahead.

I'm fine with not allowing it...but don't allow it from the start next time!

Re: Team Update #18

I find it unfortunate that they made this rule, as now robots that have drivetrain problems cannot help their alliance. With out this rule, even a dead 'bot could have been useful to their alliance. Now they won't even bother to bring a dead 'bot to the field

If we have the change, I WILL try this. Hopefully to win, but if not atleast in protest of the constant rule changes.

After the made up rules that could've cost us a match, and these random team updates, I'm bringing the rules out on the field with me.

Pardon my ignorance, what did Stang actually do?
I mean I think I know, but I am unsure.

Starting Conditions

Section 7.3.3.1 dictates the starting conditions of the robot, but one question remains: Can a robot start on top of another robot, provided that both fit within their respective size restrictions?

Re: Starting Conditions

There is no rule that would prohibit this.
