We’ve been seeing some problems around sizing at tournaments.
We’re seeing robots that met the 20 inch length requirement, but when set on the field for a match, crossed over the front of the black line. The need to hang over the back wall in order to fit in the starting position really generates a lot of confusion and problems. As an EP and Ref I understand the rationale. But it’s hard for a lot of people to understand. I hope this can be revised in the future.
I also think the rule about not touching the back wall at the start of the match needs to go. Too hard to enforce and doesn’t serve any real purpose that I can see.
