Multiple <SG3> violations in one match


Nathan Nolte (Event Partner)
1-Nov-2021

SG3 states in part:

Violations of this rule which do not interfere with gameplay, such as bumping into the Platform and then driving away, will result in the opposing Alliance receiving credit for one additional Elevated Robot at the end of the Match. (Alliances may still only receive points for a maximum of two Elevated Robots).

If SG3 is violated multiple times by the same alliance in a match, can multiple Elevated Robot credits be awarded to the victimized alliance? For instance, if a red robot does a bump-and-run of the blue platform with 29 seconds left, and then with 10 seconds left a second contact with the blue platform is made by a red robot, will the blue alliance be awarded 30 extra points or 60 extra points (assuming they do not have a balanced robot on their platform)?

Yes.

In this hypothetical example, the blue Alliance should receive credit for two Elevated Robots, i.e. 60 points.
