Chezy Champs will be played under the FIRST Steamworks rules with the following modifications:
1. No inspection, honor system on legality. +5 pounds weight allowance for repairs and minor modifications. All other FIRST robot rules apply. Event organizers may conduct ad-hoc inspections at any time; violations identified must be corrected before the robot can participate in subsequent matches.
2. To account for the time it takes for balls entering the boiler to be counted, balls will continue to be scored at autonomous point values for five seconds after the end of the autonomous period. Similarly, balls will continue to be scored at teleoperated point values for five seconds after the end of the teleoperated period.
3. Four-team alliances in the eliminations tournament. 1-8, 8-1, 1-8 selection order.
