2018-2019 Game


#1

So I pretty much know where this is going, but i want to hear so of thoughts on what the next game might be.


#2

I think it will be throwing balls, like nothing but net.


#3

And you have to collect the balls from a pool of water.


#4

w a t e r g a m e


#5

I just want another shooting game.


#6

I would like to see something like sack attack but with the nbn no expansion rule. Shooting beanbags would be very challenging and interesting. Otherwise something with hundreds/thousands of scoring objects would be great fun as well


#7

Sack attack except you fill the troughs with water instead of bags.


#8

Hmm some pumping could be done with pneumatics there if you fill them with water.


#9

you stack other robots on top of each other.


#10

when do we find out next years competition anyways?


#11

They announce next years competition after the world finals.


#12

@JuiceBox they’ve announced the new game on April 22nd for the past games though on youtube, isn’t that before worlds?


#13

Nope, the finals for worlds last year was one April 22nd.


#14

@JuiceBox i seen on an ad last year it was televised in june, maybe it wasn’t live


#15

Yea worlds is in April it usually gets televised sometime over the summer so that would make sense


#16

Waterproof cortex = Water game confirmed!


#17

I read something on the forums that v5 is not confirmed to be waterproof


#18

NO!


#19

A precision dumping challenge like IQ Crossover would be a lot of fun. I also think it would be cool to see a game where defense is a legitimate strategy but actually requires a well refined bot to be effective.


#20

I think trying to get around in a pit filled with balls or foam cubes would be… interesting. It would make teams have to completely rethink their drive base.
