I've seen a couple of teams pull the Solar Panel Array near their Base.  Last week, the opposite team pushed theirs, and both teams scored.
Yesterday, the times that I noted it, the other Solar Panel wasn't moved.

It is a nice strategy, that benefits from talking things over with your opposite team first.

We had a question about solar array score that some clarification would help. Our strategy was to pull the panel. In the first round we pulled but got 0 points. Am pretty sure that the other team pushed their panel. Needless the team changed the program to pushing it to be safe. Looking at the mission write up it says potential scores can be 40 as well. Can someone please explain how can that be achieved? 


Solar panels need to be angled toward or away from you, depending on strategy and conditions.


  • Both solar panels are angled toward the same field: 22 (for both teams)

  • Your solar panel is angled toward the other team’s field: 18

  • Possible scores: 0, 18, 22, 40
