Answered: Is a defensive design illegal?

Between reviewing multiple videos and going through the rule book, I’ve come up stumped to whether this is an illegal design or not.

Without going into too much detail, is a robot designed specifically to obstruct the opponent’s ability to score illegal (via blocking…like 8 feet of blocking), if it meets all design requirements and does not cross over the fence boundary, or at least not more than I’ve seen others do anyhow.

I’m pretty sure that this is legal from what I’ve read, but since I haven’t seen something like this before I figured it was best to ask before we built something useless.

There are no specific rules against this type of strategy.
