It would seem to me like that interpretation is correct, but it apparently wasn’t during Tower Takeover.
TT definition of “Scored” (emphasis mine):
Scored - A Cube status. A Cube is considered Scored in a Goal Zone at the end of a Match if it is not contacting a Robot of the same Alliance color as the Goal Zone, and meets the criteria of being either a Base Cube or a Stacked Cube.
The definitions of “Base” and “Stacked” Cubes are the same.
As we know, Cubes in the Goal Zones at the end of Autonomous were considered “Scored,” even though it wasn’t the end of the Match. I think we need official clarification on:
- If Platforms can be “Balanced” at the end of auton.
- If Robots and / or Mobile Goals can be “Elevated” at the end of auton.
- If Mobile Goals can be “Scored” at the end of Auton.
The last one applies because of the following wording in the Scoring section (emphasis mine):
A Mobile Goal is considered Scored in an Alliance Home Zone if, at the end of the Match, any part of the Mobile Goal Base is contacting the Alliance Home Zone.
