Ok… i have no idea where should i place this post.
But just hope i can get the attention of the relevant people involved.
A thought just occurred to me - imagine you have a field that is not level, or tilted to one side (but still within vrc requriements of +/- 1" ), and you are stacking a 8 to 10 cubes high at your goal, and because of the slippery nature of the cubes and the tilted field, your stack of cubes toppled down.
It will be a nightmare to any teams that are in this situation.
A few of these similar instances came to mind :-
Nbn - the balls rolling to one side of the field due to tilted field
Skyrise - the infamous breaking of the skyrise section after you were done with the last section
Toss up - beach ball over-inflated at worlds
I am sure there were many more examples.
But i am sure you guys must have understand where i am coming from.
My main point - should we have a rule to ensure that the field is level during setup? One can easily use a spirit level to check.
But of course, it will be additional work for the EPs.
