wait but on the edge goals the two bottom rings are closer together than the diameter of a ball, how can a ball fit there? does it not go all the way between the rings?
if this turns out to be an issue, than that will change strategies a lot. it will be all about getting the bottom balls in the corners, and jamming them in deep so they can’t be descored.
Tbh I’m a bit annoyed with the design of these goals. The point of the game is to be a back and forth game, which it will not be if you can plug up the bottom just by pushing balls in deep. and these goals are more annoying than challenging to descore from. The choice to make the tolerances below the ball on the edge goals was a poor one imo, because it means that minor variations in the goals will dramatically effect gameplay, and the fact that the goal is held together with just friction means that after hundreds of descores, the rings might start to drift apart again, which will be an issue in having a consistent field. Also the balls and rings will get very scuffed and damaged from constant descoring.
In my opinion, the negative tolerances on the edge goals adds nothing but annoyance and problems to the game that will detract from the intended gameplay.
