I respectfully disagree. If you have scored 4 balls in auton you have those points and the bonus. (for clarification I do not mean the 4 preloads, that would be a waste, I would score 4 balls from the floor) Now, you took 4 balls away from your opponent by scoring them. Meanwhile all your opponent has done is hoarded 8 balls. Not scored them, or picked them up. Just pushed them to a corner. When driver control starts, you will go pick up four more and score them, while they are picking up and scoring their FIRST batch of balls. You are ahead in every way possible. You have more points in the goals, you have the autonomous bonus, and you have not given up more balls to the opponent. Remember, they have 8 in their corner. You have scored 4, and are picking up 4 more while they are picking up 4 of their 8 their hoarded.
I’m sure there are many other scenarios, but this was the scenario described initially in this conversation.
