Answered: Can't be in 5 point zone in the last 30 seconds

There is a pervasive belief by some refs in Virginia that a robot can’t be in the opposing teams 5 point zone the last 30 seconds of a match. Since there is nothing in the rules saying that you CAN, it is impossible to refute during a tournament. Can you please make a ruling here in the Q&A so we can show the refs at upcoming tournaments? Thanks!

There are no rules prohibiting this, thus it is legal. Teams who undergo a defensive strategy in the opponent’s 5 point zone should be cognizant of <SG10> and <G12>.
