Proposal: Diverting the bypass

Times out 2-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Add a reaction to the list of reactions: “...block”

Reword the sentence “When a Bot Bypasses, it moves in the allocated direction the set number of times, without interacting (bumping/shoving etc) with any Bots in the intervening squares.” to:

When a Bot Bypasses, it moves in the allocated direction the set number of times, without interacting (bumping/shoving etc) with any non-blocking Bots in the intervening squares.

Add a system to the list of Systems in the rule Systems:
| Giant Mitt || ₩900 || 0 || Passive: This bot is always blocking.

This can shut down tactics that rely on extensive bypassing - either by using a system to become an impassible wall, or by doing a surprise block to have a bypassing bot run into you. It’s niche but while I was going through my most recent botscript, I realised it needed some counter-play to avoid someone relying on it turn after turn.

you should add blocking to the “A Reaction is considered Resolvable if:” list

also, you might want to say “In the rule BotScript, add a reaction” instead of “add a reaction”

I’ll have to just catch those issues when I get a proposal slot back.
