After an image was posted on the Tower Takeover memes discussion Tower Takeover Memes, @Pea made a post simply titled “Tall pole”. It was a picture of a roughly 5’8” post in a tower takeover tower, the post was from the turning point net. No matter what the height, it started a sudden surge in the topic.
Should the towers be made of metal?
Besides the money it would take vex to produce them, and the cost of them to the consumer, should they change it?
I personally think we should stick with the current material. People are saying that robots already run into each other so it would be fine, but to me the difference is that you can push other robots which means they absorb the shock. However, a metal tower would be grounded to the field, and some wrong turns I believe could ruin a tournament for some teams. The current towers aren’t nearly as flimsy as what people say. I’m sure that after the flag’s performance from turning point, wear and tear shouldn’t be an issue.
What do you think?
