Introducing the 2015-2016 VRC Game, VRC Nothing But Net
Do you have to shoot them or can you place them in?
<SG3> A Robot may not expand beyond a volume of 18 inches wide by 18 inches long by 18 inches
tall at any point during the Match, with the exception of the allowance listed in <SG10>.
<SG10> Robots may expand beyond their normal maximum perimeter of 18” by 18” only while
completely within the volume of the Climbing Zone. Robots may expand above the 18” height limit
while completely within the volume of the Climbing Zone and with less than thirty seconds (0:30) left
in the Match.
GG GDC… GG
Feels too simplistic
The ban on expansion means that no one is able to build a wallbot effectively. Defense is difficult.
Looking forward to 4 identical launcher robots.
this looks familliar
<SG8> Robots may not Possess more than four (4) Scoring Objects at once.
oh yeah its THAT rule again >_>
I expect to see some design convergence with an I taking and shooting mechanism, but it’s the elevation bonus that I think will lead to a variance in design. I find it especially interesting, seeing as I plan on competing in VEX U next year. It’s also nice to see something that could use programming during driver control to gain an advantage (potentially using the ultrasonic sensors to align and get a proper distance to shoot from), as well as something that’s just different from lift and score.
but…but…I like lifts.
pull out the pneumatic launchers again.
No wheelie bars either…
Am I interpreting SG10 correctly? I read it to mean that you cannot expand horizontally…only vertically during the last 30 seconds?
From what I’m seeing, you can expand horizontally inside the climbing zone at any time, and you can expand vertically in the zone during the last 30 seconds.
Also, does anyone know when the official Q&A for Nothing but Net opens?
It normally take a month or two
Ok. I’ve got a few questions already.
Really?? After Skyrise you still like lifts? I’m glad to be rid of them.
Did anyone recognize the guys who pushed the new game onto the stage? Sniff - they make us proud!
Agreed, I’m ready for a change. I think this game will be fun.
So i can understand the limit on horizontal expansion to limit wallbots from totally blocking off the goal areas. But I dont really like the banning of lifts outside of the climbing area. It feels like its limiting our designs. Unless im reading the rules wrong…
