im not sure but i recall there being a max? of 12 black balls that will fit into the goals?

20 balls are in the human player station...

12 x 2 = 24 balls able to fit into the goals

24 - 20 = 4 balls (out of the OTHER 20) needed to be picked up at the other end of the field... assuming u drag both goals over to the human player station ..THATS ALL???

Is anyone thinking what i am thinking??

jus curious (one of my 5 million ideas)

I get what you're saying... but wouldn't that be too easy?

He He He... You know what? We are going to the same regional as you guys... I think? We are going to the Silicon Valley Regional. If you guys are going there too, I guess I'll see you there!

As my friend and i watched kickoff, we saw that the max looked around 12 with the balls over the top of the goal.. ie with a 48" ball on top, the max came down to 11 or 10, does everyone think this seem pretty accurate?

As part of my team watched, we figured that we figured that we could fit 10 small balls in, and still get the 30" ball in. I think we are building a chute tomorrow so we know for sure how many balls we can fit.

Well... actually if you try hard, and shake the goals around a little bit, you can fit a few more balls in. In fact, the whole reason they have so many balls is that, they are really looking for choas in the field, and really hopping balls going under the bridge, and I bet they design the bridge so that ball will easily slide under them... So, since it's the same field, everyone will be on an even ground, and it doesn't matter how many balls you get in, it's how many MORE balls you can get in than other groups of robots...
