Double bot charge station (autonomous)

Hey so uhm. You know how only one robot counts in auto for the balance on charge station. Couldn’t you technically do two. And get rewarded for just being docked for the second robot.
In table 6-2 it states “1 ROBOT max in auto” for each, docked and not engaged & docked and engaged

Explain how 1 robot can be docked and engaged and 1 robot be just docked on the same charge station

Might be worth a Q&A, even just for fun…

Just to see how it gets answered.

I’ve updated the post photo to include 6.4.2 and it says that in order to be engaged “ B. all ALLIANCE ROBOTS contacting the CHARGE STATION are DOCKED.”
Therefore being engaged is the same thing is being docked but also having the added qualification of being level.

A ROBOT is DOCKED if it is contacting only the CHARGE STATION and/or other items also directly or transitively fully supported by the CHARGE STATION.

A ROBOT is ENGAGED if both of the following criteria are met:
A. the CHARGE STATION is LEVEL, and
B. all ALLIANCE ROBOTS contacting the CHARGE STATION are DOCKED.

Thus all the robots on the station are either Docked or Docked and Engaged. So since only 1 robot can get points for either thing there is no point in both robots doing it.
