Iv’ve read the manual a few times and i’m still a bit shakey on how assists are scored. Ive looked at the diagrams and such but i dont quite understand what the nine boxes are trying to depict. If someone could explain futher, it would be helpful and appreciated.
Basically, to explain the diagrams, each X represents a robot having possession of the ball. The highlighted yellow boxes represent the ‘count’ of assists.
An assist is counted when one person/robot on your alliance POSSESS the ball. The next part is what actually counts the assist, each separate robot needs to cross the line or enter a different zone each time. There are a few different ways to make assists easier, but that is the definition of my understanding
The use of the word “assist” can is a little confusing, but it’s pretty simple. What they are tracking is which robots have possession in which zones. That is what the grid is showing. An assist is defined as A robot possessing a ball in a zone. Where it gets complicated, is that , per cycle, a robot’s possession in a zone can only count for an assist once.
