I was watching this event hosted by REC, the first VEX IQ Rise Above teamwork competition, and I had a question about the scoring.
The below screenshot shows two teams with a score of 138. I am very unsure how this is possible with this match. They way I see it, this would be a score of 45 points: 1 completed stack, one completed row, 12 scored risers.
I checked the game manual, and rule LRT5 says that
“To score a Completed Stack, the Goal must meet the criteria of a Completed Stack on one (1) Team’s field. a. applies to Completed Stacks. A Completed Stack must be within a Completed Row, but the Completed Row does not need to be contained within the same Team’s field as the Completed Stack.”
Pages 34 and 35 give examples of what is a completed stack and what is not a completed stack. Page 32 confirms that the point values are still the same as all the other field setups.
I cannot find anything in the manual saying that these stacks of three risers are completed stacks, and if anyone can, I would like to know.
Below is another image of two teams scoring exactly 100 points. This is an impossible score to get (if I am wrong, someone please let me know), and other matches have gotten similarly difficult scores, such as 67 points.
