To violate <SG10>, the action a team takes must be an “intentional strategy causing an opponent to violate a rule”. does this mean:
A) The physical action taken by Robot A that caused opposing Robot B to violate a rule was intentional (basically, Driver A was in control of their robot at the time and intended for Robot A to do whatever it did. For example, Driver A drives towards the Skyrise to score points, and in the process pushes Robot B onto a protected tile)
B) Driver A’s aim in performing the action was to cause opposing Robot B to perform the action it did, which broke a rule (For example, Driver A intentionally pushes Robot B onto a protected tile) but Driver A does this for some reason other than to have Team B penalised for the rule violation (for example they just want access to a medium post)
C) Driver A intentionally causes Robot B to break a rule in the hope that Team B will be penalised
D) Something else?
And a related question:
EDIT: The rest of this post was mostly answered in this thread, so this is now mostly redundant. Sorry about that, I thought “pending” Q+As weren’t going to be answered because the update was supposed to have answered them.
Skyrise sections (even built ones) are not field elements. Is it legal to pin an opposing robot into your Skyrise, assuming you do so for strategic reasons and not in an attempt to have them penalised for breaking <SG9>? If so, can you pin them indefinitely? If pinning an opponent into your skyrise is a violation of <SG10>, what determines whether or not that violation is match-affecting?
Similarly, is it legal to pin an opposing robot to the field perimeter within your protected zone, or trap them in your corner of the field, assuming you do so for strategic reasons and not in an attempt to have them penalised for breaking <SG9>?
