To settle this debate, I think we should call them “rings.”

Disc golf generally is spelled with a c and since this is essentially a robotic version of disc golf, it should be spelled “disc”. I do hope there is some official verification of that though, it could become a serious issue scoring matches if people are using different spellings for the same thing.

While this is technically correct, it goes a little deeper than that.

Disc with a -c is most commonly used for devices carrying sound, such as vinyl records, or a compact disc(CD, for those too young to remember). This is also used alternatively as those flat circular things we throw called ‘frisbees’, and as such, is the correct spelling in the context of Spin Up.

Disk with a -k is most commonly used in technology, one example being a hard disk.

But yes, if random tech knowledge isn’t your thing, just remember that frisbees are discs with a -c, because we see them flying into crowds when one’s autonomous fails miserably. :)

shouldn’t this stand out from disc golf?

I guess I’ve never played disc golf where you throw a bunch of string everywhere at the end, so yeah, you’re probably right. :joy:
