My team noticed that you were able to control an infinite number of game pieces within the loading zone and the community area, what is stopping teams from using their momentary control [G403] to move said game pieces between the two zones?
Me, seeing you with a stack of game pieces, and waiting outside your human loading zone to waste 2 seconds of your time and end your whole career with fouls.
If the referee sees you intentionally moving pieces to an area you would be in violation of G403.
its great in auto though
To be clear - doing it once/twice a match in auto where you hold 2 game pieces for less than 3 seconds outside the COMMUNITY is perfectly legal
To specify, what is stopping teams from traveling between the two zones in less than 3 seconds and staying within momentary control?
nothing as long as you do it less than 3 times a match
The blue box, which says you can’t have frequent control of more than 2 or more game pieces.
Those are examples of egregious violations of the rule. I’d think you need to violate the rule to egregiously violate the rule.
thats just an approximate its up to the ref
Wait, I have Just the drivetrain for this.
Based off of last year’s rule enforcement, they will be counting out 3 seconds then giving the foul. I expect that to stay the same this year.
Since the rule says the rule has to violated 3 times, what’s preventing you from carrying like 20 game pieces back?
That’s an egregious violation (blue box c)
Would you, though?
Remember: the rule specifically bans “greater-than-momentary” control of more than one piece.
Momentary is <3 seconds.
The two questions are: Can you make the trip in <3 seconds, AND can you do that through defense?
And for everybody pointing at the blue box: Is it egregious if it is not a violation of the rule in the first place?
It isn’t. It is an egregious violation if you have greater-than-momentary control of >3. If you hold more than 3 for less than 3 seconds you haven’t violated G403 in the first place so you can’t have egregiously violated it.
True, good call
By the way, I fully expect this to be a non-discussion by the end of Build Week 1.
A robot completely outside of its Loading Zone or Community may not have greater-than-Momentary Control of more than 1 game piece.
That is not the same as saying a robot that has control of more than 1 game piece may not be outside of its Loading Zone or Community for a greater-than-Momentary period of time.
The way I read it, if you’ve had control for more than one game piece for anything beyond a momentary period of time and you completely leave your Loading Zone or Community, the referee can assign you a foul instantly.
If someone actually manages to do this without getting a foul i wanna see the clip
