  • Legality of team marker deployment mechanism

    We have created a mechanism for scoring the team marker that is meant to reduce the number of movements we need to make in auto. It extends into the depot, drops off the team marker, and then retracts. Due to the nature of the movement that our arm makes we wanted to ensure that this wouldn't be considered rolling the team marker into the depot. It is fully controlled throughout the process and rolls off the end of the arm once it has already broken the "barrier" surrounding the depot. This is a link to a video of the mechanism because it is difficult to describe:

    GDC: This question was previously addressed in the "Autonomous Period - Answers" post #10. The mechanism satisfies the intent of the GDC for deploying a Team Marker.
