Since the VRC Official TossUp Q&A seems to be locked down I am not sure where to post my question since my teams still have TSA TossUp this summer.
At TSA we are doing Head-to-Head (1v1) matches and the rules are not clear about the 15 sec autonomous period for such a match. SG1 alludes to both of the tiles being part of my alliance and since we are the only team of the alliance then this is more similar to programming skills.
Can we start in the hanging zone, collect bucky balls, go over the bump and into the middle zone were we are repositioned to a legal starting position to enter the goal zone?
Rules in Question:
<SG1> At the beginning of each Match, each Robot must be placed such that it is touching one of their
colored Alliance Starting Tiles, not touching any Scoring Object other than those permitted by <SG2> and
not touching any other foam field tiles or the Bump. No more than one Robot may start the match on any
one Alliance Starting Tile.
<SG4> During the Autonomous Period, Drivers and Coaches may handle their own Robot while the
Robot is in contact with their own Alliance Starting Tile (i.e. the tile the Robot started the match on), and
not touching the Bump, within the following restrictions.
i. Drivers and Coaches may only interact with a Robot if it is touching their own Alliance Starting
Tile and no part of the Robot is touching a gray foam tile, except the interaction allowed in
Drivers and Coaches may interact with their robots as specified in <SG4> of Section 2 – The Game,
with the following additional restrictions:
i. Drivers and Coaches may only interact with a Robot if it is touching an Alliance Starting Tile of the
same color as the one they started on and no part of the Robot is touching a gray foam tile, except
the interaction allowed in
