how does the ranking work for teams with the same score? what are the tie breaker protocol?

Robot Skills Challenge tiebreakers within a given event are explained in the VRC Tower Takeover Robot Skills Challenge Appendix, under the section titled "Robot Skills Challenge Ranking".

• In the case where two Teams are tied for the highest score, the tie will be broken by looking at both Teams’ next highest Programming Skills Matches score. If the Teams remain tied, the tie will be broken by looking at both Teams’ next highest Driving Skills Matches score. This process will repeat until the tie is broken.

• If the tie cannot be broken (i.e. both Teams have the exact same scores for each Programming Skills Matches and Driving Skills Matches), then the following ordered criteria will be used to determine which Team had the “best” Programming Skills Matches.

  1. Number of Placed Cubes.

  2. Number of Scored Cubes.

• If the tie still cannot be broken, the same process in the step above will be applied to the Teams’ best Driving Skills Match.

• If the tie still isn’t broken, events may choose to allow Teams to have one more deciding Driving Skills Matches, or declare both Teams the Robot Skills Challenge Winner.
