Would balls that are supported by the field perimeter be considered scored?
The definition of scored in the game manual states:
Scored - A Game Object is Scored if it satisfies one of the following conditions, and is not touching a Robot.
- a. A Ball is Scored inside of a Cube if it meets the following criteria:
- i. The Ball is at least partially within the three-dimensional volume defined by the outer edges of the Cube’s structure.
- ii. The Ball is not contacting the Floor “outside” of the Cube. The portion of the Floor which is “outside” of the Cube is roughly defined as a vertical projection of the Cube onto the Floor beneath the Cube, regardless of the Cube’s orientation.
Therefore would this be considered scored according to the definition. https://i.imgur.com/uUQzYhM.jpg
This makes it very difficult for our referees to check each ball in the corner, especially when multiple balls are supported in this way and direct vision is obstructed. How should referees go about checking for scored balls in this position when they cannot directly see the balls. Should referees move move other balls or objects so they can see clearly? If so, what are the best practices for doing this?
