At FiM Shepherd, my team and the 8th alliance had an unfortunate loss (SF1M2) against the 4th alliance. No contempt towards them, they played great and were very graciously professional. We lost by 4 points, and there were two unlucky things that happened:
a) My team’s VRM cable came unplugged in the last portion of the match. Based on previous matches, we easily would have been able to score a cargo and get back to the platform to win.
b) One of our teammates didn’t have their HAB 2 climb scored because they were touching a ball.
I was mainly frustrated by this because an eerily similar HAB 2 climb in QF1M2 had been given the six points.
I didn’t contest it because we won anyway, but I tried to reference it later with the refs. I understand that these are volunteers, but it was the same referee for both climbs.
I know the event is over now, but should one argue this with the referee or let the referee’s call go? Also, should a climb count if the bot is only touching the ball, not ‘supported’ by it?
