From videos on youtube, i see that the net for the scoring zone actually flips and opens up, im wondering if that will be legal to do during matches as it will enable some new possible game strats.
Welcome to the forum!
I would advise you first get familiar with the documentation here:
In particular read the Game Manual, then read it again, and again. Your question is answered in the Game Manual - look at <SG5>
Thank you very much for the info!
