  • Suspending on Platform

    If a flat part of a robot is laying on the platform, and another robot drives on top of it to where it wasn't technically touching the platform (although the other robot's part is), is that considered suspending another robot?

    If no other part of the robot with the flat part is below the plane of the platform AND the other robot is touching nothing but that flat part THEN the other robot is suspended. IMHO.

      7.1 OVERVIEW
      The object of the game is to attain a higher score than your opponent by shooting BALLS into a GOAL, climbing on the ALLIANCE TOWER or PLATFORM, or by lifting an ALLIANCE ROBOT off the PLAYING SURFACE.

      7.2 DEFINITIONS
      ELEVATED: A ROBOT that is completely above the plane of the PLATFORM and in contact with the TOWER shall be considered ELEVATED.

      SUSPENDED: A ROBOT only in contact with an ELEVATED ROBOT and/or a SUSPENDED ROBOT shall be considered SUSPENDED.

      7.3.3 Scoring
      <G04> Scoring - ALLIANCE scores are determined by a combination of the number of BALLS SCORED in the ALLIANCE GOALS during the MATCH and the number or ROBOTS in the following states at the conclusion of the MATCH, where:
      a. Each SCORED BALL is worth 1 point, and
      b. Each ELEVATED ROBOT is awarded 2 points, or each SUSPENDED ROBOT is awarded 3 points.

      If another robot (robot 1) drives on top of a robot (robot 2) that is lying on the platform and robot 2 is completely above the plane of the platform and robot 1 is not in contact with anything other than robot 2, than robot 1 would be considered suspended and would be awarded 3 points.

      If robot 1 is on top of robot 2 and is completely above the plane of the platform, but is touching a field element would be considered elevated and would be awarded 2 points.

      If another robot (robot 1) is attached to robot (robot 2) that is lying on the platform and robot 1 is not in contact with anything other than robot 2, than robot 1 would be considered suspended and would be awarded 3 points. This statement means robot 1 only needs to not be incontact with field elements (tower, platform, floor, bump, ...).

      Climbing on the top of an elevated robot is not covered in the overview as an object of the game and needs clarification from first.

      Hope this helped.
