Answered: Disabled robots and Pinning

Hi Karthik,

Today we had an interesting thought:
We understand that if a robot touches an opponent starting tile then the robot gets disabled. However, if this robot was in a pinning position when it was disabled (ie. A robot was still on the starting tile) what would happen? Would the disabled robot then get disqualified for pinning? Or would the opposing robot just have to deal with being stuck against the wall?

Thanks a lot! :slight_smile:

A disabled robot can still be penalized for pinning, resulting in disqualification. So in this case, the offending team would automatically lose the Autonomous Bonus and be disabled as per <SG7>, and then disqualified for pinning as per <SG3>.
