Blackscreen caused by a Glitch on the Brain - Replay?



At a recent competition in the finals match, our Brain randomly turned off during the match, causing us to be Disabled for the rest of the match (since we couldn't turn the Brain back on after we had moved). Our battery was at four bars, and when we turned the Brain back on after the match had been scored, it turned on perfectly fine. This seemed to be a glitch, but the referees didn't replay the match, saying that since it wasn't a whitescreen, it didn't qualify for a replay. Would this qualify for a replay, since it isn't the Team or the Field Control's fault?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for your question. The situation you've described does not meet the requirements of rule <T7b>, and would not warrant a replay.
