Robot touching placed cubes at the end of a match

Greg Nichols (Event Partner)

If a team is in contact with a placed tower cube in a neutral or their own alliance tower at the end of the match would it be considered scored for the multiplier or would the multiplier be voided for that tower.

Answered by Game Design Committee

The definition of Placed states the following:

Placed - A Cube status. A Cube is considered Placed in a Tower at the end of a Match if any part of it is breaking the plane defined by a given Tower’s Placing Line.

This is the only criteria used to determine if a Cube is considered Placed (and therefore used in scoring calculations). Robot contact is not listed as a criteria, and therefore has no bearing on whether or not a given Cube is considered Placed.
