  • Question on "climbing"

    What counts as a climb? In the Rules, it doesn't specify what exactly a "robot fully supported by the SCALE" means.
    Does it count as a "climb" if you have a mechanism that lifts (like a jack) the robot off the ground and over the bricks at the bottom of the tower? Or do you have to use the bar attached to the tower to climb?

    Hi Vealatte,

    For further clarification of game specific objectives I recommend you submit a questions to the Q&A which opens on January 10, 2018, noon Eastern. That being said, I recommend you take a look at some these sections of the Game & Season Manual. All of these quotes are quoted at time of writing and may change with team updates in the future.

    The Glossary (section 11, page 129) defines climbing as
    A ROBOT fully supported by the SCALE (either directly or transitively) with BUMPERS fully above the BRICKS at T=0, and not at all in the opponents PLATFORM ZONE
    R24 (page 77) has information about the BUMPER ZONE. Take a look at example 2 in the blue box:
    Example 2: A ROBOT deploys a MECHANISM which lifts the BUMPERS outside the BUMPER ZONE (when virtually transposed onto a flat floor). This violates R24.
    Let me know if these 2 pieces of information help!
