I just read the game manual for Tipping Point, and it seems as though the GDC is not going to allow teams to use the Cortex system, per “Robots are built from the VEX V5 system. Robots may be built ONLY using official VEX V5 components, unless otherwise specifically noted within these rules. Teams are responsible for providing documentation proving a part’s legality in the event of a question. Examples of documentation include receipts, part numbers, official VEX websites, or other printed documentation.” Also note R18, R19, and R20.
I have not used Cortex since middle school for STEM class, and my first year in competitive robotics was with V5, so this does not affect me. However, do other teams still use Cortex for competition, and will this affect teams?
