Answered: Owning Posts

After searching the Skyrise Manual, I was not able to find my answer so I figured I will ask. I understand that in qualification and elimination matches, owning a post is when your alliance color cube is on top when scored on a post, being worth one additional point. My question is how (if at all) would owning posts be scored in a Programming or Robot Skills run, seeing as though the colors are negligible in Skills runs. Thank you in advance for your response!

Let’s take a look at the pertinent rules from the VEX Skyrise Appendix B - Robot Skills Challenge. (Please note that there is an equivalent rule for the Programming Skills Challenge)

Now let’s take a look at the definition of Owned from the VEX Skryise Game Manual.

Since all Cubes are considered to be the same Color, any Cube, regardless of colour, Scored on a Post during a Skills Challenge Match will result in the Post being owned for the competing team.

Awesome, thank you for the clarification!

You’re welcome!
