Modern Robotics Core Control Modules, less the Core Legacy Modules, will still be allowed for the upcoming 2018-2019 season. The REV Expansion hub will continue to be allowed, and will be included in the official kit of parts.

Robot Weight Limit: The coming 2018-2019 season will impose a weight limit for Robots of 42 pounds total. More details on this rule change will be outlined in the Game Manual Part 1 scheduled for release in July 2018.
