How many robots can start of level 2?

At the start of the game, robots can start on level 1 or 2 in the hab zone. Level 1 = 3 pts(if you cross the hab zone line) and Level 2 = 6 pts. Is it possible for all 3 (your robot and your alliance robots) robots to start on level 2 for a total of 18 pts?

Looking at the field drawings, the platforms for levels 2 and 3 aren’t big enough for anymore than 1 robot to sit on. So I don’t think it’s possible to get 18 points to start the match

Copied directly from the manual, page 39 section 5.1.2 “Robots”: Teams stage their ROBOT on their HAB PLATFORM such that it is fully and only supported by HAB PLATFORM Levels 1 or 2.

So theoretically it would be possible, but the platforms aren’t large enough for all three robots, let alone two to fit well enough to not fall off.

I agree, I believe it is a maximum of 15 points from the HAB Platform in the sandstorm. 6 for each level 2 platform, equaling 12, and then plus 3 for the other robot starting on level 1. So, 15.

Fortunately there’s no rule requiring you to build to the maximum frame perimeter


Nor is there any rule that defines the minimum length/width or the shape of your frame perimeter.

No rule, but there are pracictcal limitations…
