Answered: Programming Skills Question


Recently while viewing several teams programming skills. I realized that many of them seem to be violating <SG8>, which states;
"Robots may not possess more than three (3) BuckyBalls at once. Violations of this rule will result in a warning for minor offenses which do not affect the match.
Egregious (match affecting) offenses will result in a disqualification. Teams that receive multiple warnings may also receive a Disqualification at the head referee’s discretion.

I have seen a thread about skills here;
And I didn’t know if the ruling would be different/what the ruling?

It is possession of more than three buckyballs, so would it be “match affecting?” I added a picture to this with an example. Thanks!

Take a look at this previous thread which deals with Match affecting offenses in the Skills Challenges.

Thanks for the help Karthik!

You’re welcome!
