Does anyone know if 5 point bonuses are counted for stacking cones on stationary/mobile goals in driver and programming skills? Example: If there is one cone stacked on a mobile goal that is not put in any scoring zones, it would count for 7 points (2 + 5).
In the ITZ Robot skills manual it only says:
A Cone Stacked on a Goal is worth two (2) points.
• A Mobile Goal Scored in a 5 Point Zone is worth five (5) points.
• A Mobile Goal Scored in 10 Point Zone is worth ten (10) points.
• A Mobile Goal Scored in 20 Point Zone is worth twenty (20) points.
• A Robot Parked at the end of the Match is worth two (2) points.
It does not state anything about bonuses for stacks.
Ok cool, I hope that’s the real answer because a team that had a 22 point auton got 27 points in programming skills, so the only way that could have happened is if they had made another program that got them 5 more points from a mobile goal into the 5 point zone (unlikely at first competition) or the highest stack counted towards their score.
I totally agree. Frankly, if that was the case, they were probably disappointed with only scoring 5 more points in the remaining 45 seconds.
This simply does not sound out of line at all. I would guess that the only reason the difference was only 5 points is that they were working on other things a bit more. Any team that can score 22 in 15 seconds should be able to add another 30 points over the course of the next 45 seconds.
