OK, let’s face the elephant in the room.
We all know there is a loophole with SG5, that can potentially make autonomous much, much easier.
But are you going to let/ask your kids to exploit that loophole?
On one side, it’s the rule of the game, nothing wrong with winning the game while abiding by the rules.
On the other side, exploiting this rule is totally against the very concept of “autonomous”.
Personally, I am very disappointed to find out that the game designers wouldn’t admit their screw-up, but instead insisted on their authority. They may be thinking themselves as FIFA to soccer, but that is really hurting the VEX IQ game.
The bigger question now is:
Shall we teach our kids to develop a thick skin, and exploit anything within the rules to win?
