Answered: Preloads during robot & programming skills

I have looked at the current skills leaderboard and have found that there are scores of 1 & 2.

Are the preloads, which are in a scoring position, not counting towards the final scores?

We cannot comment on how scores are being calculated or determined at other events. However, the Scoring Rules for VEX Skyrise are quite clear. Any Cubes touching an Alliance Starting Tile at the end of any type of Match are worth one (1) point.
