So, I’ve been thinking about this game for a while. I’m not a big fan of it because there are very few goals and objectives and it seems too straight forward. So, in an attempt to get away from the standard snail
bot and lifted tray, I wanted to entertain the idea of a sniper/turret bot.
What if you could have a bot that could shoot the balls into the goals. Now, of course, this would be a challenge because you would need to have an elaborate and painstaking coding process and you would have to build it to accurately shoot massive balls at the backboard. But, if you could get it to work and accurately shoot balls into goals, you would have a massive advantage over teams, especially in the auton.
For starters, you would be able to mess up the opponents auton by shooting a ball into their goal before they can score. And its legal since the rules state that ROBOTS can not touch the foam tiles on the opposite side, not balls. You would also be able to score in goals before your opponent can get there, at least in the beginning of the game. After about 30 seconds, you would go around and empty/ shuffle the balls in the goals as usual, since they would most likely be full and obviously you can’t score as a sniper if its full. Then the final thing, it would be a ridiculously boss moment if you could shoot a buzzer beater at the last second into a goal across the field and win the game because of it.
