Answered: Defense

If you were in finals and one robot would be used to do defense while the other partner scores, can the defensive robot be in the opponents climbing zone and “mess” with the opponents defensively and than leave before the final 30 seconds?

There are no restrictions regarding being in the opposing Alliance’s Climbing Zone prior to the last 30 seconds of the Match. However, please note that the the Loading Zone is entirely within the Climbing Zone, and it has restrictions that last for the entire Match.
