Official Q&A: VRC 2019-2020: Tower Takeover Usage Guidelines

VRC Phone use during alliance selection

A question arose in the EP Q&A which impacts teams. Are you allowed to use a phone (or any communication device) as the team representative to get information from other team members or non-members during alliance selection?

Answered by Game Design Committee

There are no rules prohibiting this, thus it is legal.

Of course, this topic is also a good opportunity to remind participants that VRC is intended to be a student-centered program, as explained by this example in G2:

During Match play, it is…

…okay for an adult to provide cheerful, positive encouragement as a spectator.

…not okay for an adult to explicitly shout step-by-step commands from the audience.
