We were at a competition, and the head ref was not giving out the cubes after every match. Although it does not say it in the game manual, he said that they were a 0-0 autonomous, and no one gets the cubes. It makes sense, but I never heard of it until the competition. Where does it talk about this?
I believe if it is a tie, each side gets 3 points and one cube… that is how it has been done at all competitions that I have been to.
That’s what I would have thought as well, but there were no points given out and no cubes handed out when no one scored.
The only time no bonus should be awarded is if both alliances do something that should prevent them from getting the bonus, like violating <SG2> (per the Q&A @John_TYler posted).
There were no violations. No one scored, so technically the cubes should still have been handed out?
Yes, if no robots score any points or violate <SG2>, then the result of autonomous should be a tie and each alliance should receive 3 bonus points, 3 APs, and one bonus cube.
