I’ve found a contradiction in the scoring of skills matches, and I’m not sure if this contradiction is intentional or not.
In the scoring section of Appendix B (skills) it says:
Points are awarded according to the same scoring rules as standard VEX Robotics Competition Tipping Point head-to-head Matches. Team’s score at the end of a Robot Skills Match is calculated by combining the scores that would have been awarded to the red and blue Alliances.
And it goes on to give this example:
A blue Alliance Mobile Goal that ends the Match in the red Alliance Home Zone, and any Rings which are Scored on it, are not worth any points.
However, in the scoring section of normal head-to-head matches, the manual states:
Rings which are Scored on / in an Alliance Mobile Goal are worth points for that color Alliance, regardless of where the Alliance Mobile Goal ends the Match.
So my question is, which is it?
Are rings on an alliance goal only worth points if that goal is in the corresponding home zone, as stated by the example in the skills appendix, or does it not matter which zone the goal ends, as stated by the game manual’s scoring section and the claim that skills scoring is identical to match scoring?
