Question on Skills Point Calculation Formula

Here is a question on the skills score calculation formula; (Red Alliance Score) - (Blue Alliance Score) + 63. What is the 63 for?!?!?

If your robot doesn’t move at all, you score 0 points.


The 63 is the amount of points that the blue alliance has scored. It also makes it so that if your robot doesn’t do anything you score 0 points.


It’s made that way so that you can’t get a negative score. With the constant added, even if you do nothing you will end up with a skills score of 0 as opposed to being negative


Thanks for clearing up the confusion, this helps like a lot!
