In the virtual competition, we have witnessed that robots with a miscalibrated vision or localization can have extensive contact with the goalposts or nets. While in the regular tournaments teams would likely ask for a pick-up to reduce damage to their robot, in the virtual competition this slows down the simulation substantially since extensive collision calculations are involved. I would hence like to suggest adding the following rule for both the physical and the virtual tournament (wording is based on the SPL 2021 rule book):
Damage to the Field: A robot that damages the field, or poses a threat to spectator safety, will be
removed from the field for a 30 second removal penalty.
