Thank you for ask about it.
I'm thinking that the description about the rescue kit in the rule is not clear. So please allow me to desribe what the rule is mentioning about it!
Firstly, team can choose 2 levels for rescue kit transport. (refer rule 2.9.2)
2.9.2 Teams can either choose to carry a rescue kit to drop off into the evac zone, or to have the rescue kit on the path towards the evacuation zone.
This expression may have confused you, so let me explain it briefly in another words.
The team can choose these 2 levels for rescue kit transport.
Low level: Put the rescue kit on the robot before start. So, it means the robot will carry the rescue kit from start tile to evacuation point.
High level: Have the rescue kit on the path towards the evacuation zone. The robot will search the rescue kit on the path towards the evacuation zone and collect then transport it to evacuation point.
Next, let's check the rule section 4.5.7.
Of course, the team that chooses a higher level will get a higher multiplier.
4.5.7 An additional multiplier will be awarded for the rescue kit placed completely inside an evacuation point, as such:
● Level one + carrying rescue kit: x1.1
● Level one + not carrying rescue kit: x1.3
● Level two + carrying rescue kit: x1.2
● Level two + not carrying rescue kit: x1.6
In this section, Level one/two is representing the level of evacuation point. Then "carrying rescue kit" is representing lower level of rescue kit transport. "not carrying rescue kit" is representing higher level of rescue kit transport.
So, if you want to get highest multipliers from rescue kit, you will need to chose level two for evacuation point and have the rescue kit on the path towards the evacuation zone. In this case, you can earn x1.6!
Have you solved your question?
