Robot Skills Challenge Confliction

So I’m a little confused by the wording of Turning Point’s Skill Appendix, it says that all of the scoring objects are to start the match in favor of blue and that all objects should be “flipped” to red in order to be scored correctly. But it also says that you’re allowed to start and end the skills section with any color tile or platform only for the rule to contradict itself by saying that the robot should end on the red platform.

As with the rest of the rules this year, I’m pretty conflicted and would like to see how others read this rule.

This just means that all caps and flags start in their normal positions, but flipped to the blue side so red starts out with 0 points. You can start the robot on any alliance starting tile you want, but you have to stand in the driver zone of the same color as the tile you start on. You can only park on the center or red platforms. At the end of skills, the field is tallied for points for the red alliance.

@jwwood13 I got it now, thanks for clarifying

Wait, in skills can you center park and cross the auton line? Im assuming you can because if not you cant get a very high score.

You can definitely center park in skills and still get the same points.

But can you cross the autonomous line?

@Bhargav S. Of course

OK Thank You

So if you were to alliance park instead of center park would you have to use the red parking tile.

Yes, given that you are essentially red based on the scoring.
