Aim of the challenge
Robots will navigate an obstacle course of unknown design (and different to last year's) by remote control aiming to complete the course as quickly as possible.
All obstacles must be attempted.
Ranking and points
The amount of time taken to complete the obstacle course will be ranked and the following points awarded:
- 1st: 40 points
- 2nd: 32 points
- 3rd : 25 points
- 4th : 18 points
- 5th : 15 points
- 6th : 12 points
- 7th : 10 points
- 8th : 8 points
- 9th : 6 points
- 10th : 4 points
- 11th : 2 points
- 12th : 1 point
- For each successfully completed part of the obstacle course, you will gain 10 points.
- If you complete all obstacles successfully, you will gain an additional 5 points.
- You may skip obstacles but you will not gain points for skipped obstacles.
- For each skipped obstacle, your overall time will be increased by 30 seconds.

Am I allowed to know if there will be a tilting ramp in Pi Wars 2015?
Special Rules and Penalties contradict each other. Do you have to attempt each part of the course? (I am intending to!)
*reads* Ooh, yeah. They do don’t they.
Basically, we want everyone to attempt every obstacle. It’s difficult to get that balance between being able to skip them and getting a time benefit by doing so.
