   Anything the Robot affects (good or bad!) or puts completely outside
   Base stays as is unless the Robot changes it. Nothing is ever repositioned
   so you can “try again.”

anything that the robot does during the match.

#3. The clock doesn't stop.  But the team is allowed to rescue the robot
and relaunch from Base.  The Interruption rule applies.
