Answered: Touching the bottom ball or barrel

Consider the following scenario: A Circular Goal has the following Scoring Objects inside, from bottom to top: Red Ball, Blue Ball. At the end of the match, a Red Robot touches the Red Ball. Which alliance gets the Bonus Point? By the current definition of “Bonus Point” taken from the VEX Gateway Game Manual, it is slightly unclear. I’ve quoted the definition below:

A touched object of the same colour as the touching robot never gets any points, normal or bonus.

We will make this clearer in an upcoming manual update. The following text will be added to the definition of the Bonus Point.

“Bonus Point – A Bonus Point is earned for the lowest **Scored **Ball or Barrel (closest to the foam field tile) within a Circular Goal.”
