# Answered: Rule of Hanging Bar Not being in any Far Zone

After seeing the quote “Note: The Hanging Bars are not part of either Far Zone,” It brings up some questions that has came up to mind…
Since the hanging bar is not part of any far zone, would a high hanging robot be considered in the far zone, near zone, or neutral zone? Because the robot must be considered to be in a zone if it is touching the zone, not above the zone (Talking about the Far Zone). The definition states that the near and far zones are the tiles, and it doesn’t state that it’s an infinite plane created that extends upwards.

Other than the quote “If a Scoring Object is Supported by a Hanging Robot the Scoring Object would be
Scored in the Far Zone,” the logic created previously states the robot to be most probably neutral, so if the star isn’t touching the zone, the object must be considered the zone that the robot is on which is neutral.

If you can understand what I’m saying, the quote “The Hanging Bars are not part of either Far Zone” can bring up a logic clash against “If a Scoring Object is Supported by a Hanging Robot the Scoring Object would be Scored in the Far Zone,” so should “The Hanging Bars are not part of either Far Zone” be removed, should the object held by a hanging robot be neutral, should this just be ignored, or anything else?

Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a great day

As stated in the manual:

If a Scoring Object is Supported by a Robot, it is Scored in the Zone the Robot is touching. If the Supporting Robot is not touching a Zone, but is Hanging, the Scoring Object would be scored in the Far Zone.
