I’m sure Steve will weigh in with more detail, but meanwhile, relax:
Mission damage has to do with deliberate damage: if your mission’s approach clearly intends to succeed by breaking the model, then it’s deliberate. The pins should be glued at a tournament, and if they fall apart because they aren’t, that’s not deliberate mission damage.

Rule 25 says that mission models broken in the process of being moved into scoring position are scoreless. This seems obvious, but the bowling pins have me concerned - they're long, spindly, easily separated, and they're having a ball launched at them. I've had to put them back together so many times, I can't count.
Does this mean the robot has to throw/launch/project/whatever the ball at the pins gently?
