Answered: Disrupting your Opponent from Hanging

Hey Karthik,

Because of the popularity of the catapult launcher lately, there have been discussions on a strategy where you launch a star onto the opponent to disrupt their hang.

Seeing that it will be relatively dangerous and destructive to do so, may I clarify if the intentional strategy of disrupting your opponent’s hang is legal?

Thanks

This is not legal. Let’s take a look updated version of <G12> that was posted on June 15th. I’ve bolded some text for emphasis.

Intentionally launching Scoring Objects at a Robot trying to Hang would be a violation of <G12>, thus illegal.
