Is it just me or did the game manual ruin everyone’s idea for spin up

The game manual is literally forcing you to make launchers to get the discs into the high goals

i do think it was a mistake to release the game without releaseing how they want us to play it

The game manual never tells you how to play the game…there is no game strategy nor requirement for any mechanisms given in the manual.

You can’t poke disks out of your opponents high goal :frowning:

but there are constraints that heavily imply that they want this to be a shooting game, and not a dumping game or whatever.

Yeah cause a lot of people I know had a lot of different strategies in mind like making a hoard bot to carry discs and then launch them or making a bot the manually puts a disc in the high goal rather than shooting it and then the game manual comes out and changes it all

Shoulduv called it “Nuthin but Chainz” so no one was surprised.

You must know alot of new people :slightly_smiling_face:
I’ve been a mentor/coach since skyrise…if you’ve been around awhile, you sort of know what will be in the manual when it’s released.

Mean reply. Have to agree with @kmmohn on this one. Between the video reveal and the manual, I was very clear that mass collection of discs and manual goal loading would not be a part of the game. Just doesn’t fit with what has come before. Take it from someone that has participated since CLEAN SWEEP!!!

This just in, every time there were young people, there were also older people! I was involved in Clean Sweep… to… help… my… son.

edit: In a classic parent brag that also extends the time-continues-on theme, I will point out that my son is completing his PHD in mechanical engineering this year. (? never know with phd’s) Not saying that vex put him on the path, but it didn’t hurt.

oh no, you were stopped from taking the easy (easier?) way out, whatever will you do…

guess it’s time to start designing your launcher…

unless you want to try your luck with a snowplow or something like that.

Actualy no for me, I already wanted to design a launcher even if you could directly place in the low goal, because launching is quicker, and I was relitively sure that there was going to be a carry limit, so my design already acounted for that.
