Well, the rule says "No", you shouldn't add stickers or markings to the
robot or strategic objects.
Rule 4 -- EQUIPMENT
-- EVERYTHING - Everything you use in the competition area directly or
indirectly for strategy (mission-related activity) must be made entirely of
LEGO-manufactured elements in *original factory condition*.
- *Stickers are not allowed, except LEGO stickers, applied per LEGO
- Paint, tape, glue, oil, zip-ties, etc. are not allowed.
— Exception 3: Marker may be used only in hidden areas, for ownership
[Personally, I've even given up teasing teams about using marker on their
robot, because they get upset. And it's not practical in many situations
Your referee may tell the team that the stickers are not allowed, by Rule
4, and that they should take them off. The bottom line is that the team
gets at least three chances to show their highest score, so that an
accidental disconnection or misconnection in one match should not be the
end of the world. Knowing the robot, and designing it for to make bad
connections unlikely is part of the overall challenge for the team.
