I haven’t seen a thread or QA on this yet…
Let’s assume both alliances have a robot playing defense.
The red alliance’s defense robot is able to push a blue alliance offense robot over to the red alliance’s side of the field creating a G9 violation situation.
Is sumo defense considered standard game play so C8 doesn’t apply?
Would C8 not apply because only 1 blue robot is being forced to the far side of the field?
If C8 does apply, how long would C8 apply? (would the blue defense team have to leave or would C8 cover until the blue offense robot could reasonably leave)
If C8 applies against red, does C8 also apply against blue (the defense robot is what is causing the C8 foul against red).
When does the referee start a G18 count on the red defense robot?
Consider the same scenario except the offense robot is outside frame parameter and G10 is now in play.
Is the offense robot getting pushed responsible to get back into frame parameter to avoid G10? or is the pushing robot responsible to not push an extended robot into their side to avoid a C8?
Bear in mind G9 and G10 fouls occurring at that same time have escalated penalties.
My opinion is the easiest thing to do is call sumo defense against one robot standard game play. That would mean calling G9 and/or G10 as it happens and starting a G18 count on the defense robot.
I was curious what other people thought would happen.
