Deployment update question

In the recent update (#3) by crossing out “during the end game” in the definition of deployment does this mean we can deploy our minibot before the 10 second mark?

Yes. But <G17> may have you wanting to avoid that.

They just removed the timing portion of what constitutes a deployment. Previously, If it wasn’t endgame, you technically could not “deploy” a minibot (because deployment was defined as being during endgame only)

Its all very confusing at times with these updates!

basically what it says is that deployment is the act of crossing over that imaginary cylinder at any time. previously doing this during regular play would not be considered deployment meaning you could deploy with no risk of penalty, but by changing the wording it now means that you can be penalized for deploying before the endgame begins
