The most recent update to the game manual.
I presume this rule is in place so that teams don’t remove stacks out of other team’s robots.
However, would a single straight c-channel knocking over a stack that is unprotected in a robot be grasping, hooking or attaching?
As per G12c:
“A Team is responsible for the actions of its Robot at all times, including the Autonomous Period.
This applies both to Teams that are driving recklessly or potentially causing damage, and to
Teams that drive around with a small wheel base. A Team should design its Robot such that it is
not easily tipped over or damaged by minor contact.”
As the stack is an “extension of that robot” with the minor contact of a c-channel touching the stack causing it to topple (damaging it), would the team knocking the stack over be at fault, or should it be up to teams to make more of an effort to protect their robots to prevent others from easily making the stack topple?
