and not considered official until August 16th, 2019. There will also be scheduled manual updates on

a. The GDC reserves the right to make changes to this manual in the April 10th, 2020 release
specifically for the VEX Robotics World Champion
I may be delusional but I hold out hope that in June the GDC sees fit to eliminate the pneumatics penalty. It serves no purpose other than stifling design creativity especially in the context of the V5. Two motors is a heavy penalty and it is not like pneumatics were destroying competitiion in the earlier games when there was no penalty.
