Hint #1: Locomotion
Hint #2: A Logo

#1 + #2 = Logomotion

My guess: It's a shooting game but with moving FIRST Logo targets.

It seems to me that they have violated their own logo rules here. Maybe a game with no rules penalties? We could only hope.

I was thinking the same thing Something along those lines would be possible. It would maybe be some recreation of the 1st FIRST game since it is their anniversairy. Another thing is that it could be a linakge game because of "Little Eva" and her song "Loco - Motion". Possibly all teams on the alliance's robots are connected together to do some sort of race, or an obstacle course, considering Robot locomotion is the study of how to design robot appendages and control mechanisms to allow robots to move fluidly and efficiently.



Hope to give some people ideas

A low resolution picture of the FIRST logo.
There was a post on the game hint 1 thread about the dimensions of the picture (the Comic Sans post )

Hmmmm
In the first hint of little Eva, her face, shoulder and pole make a triangle. Her buttons are circles and the picture is itself is almost square.

Re: 2011 FRC Game Hint #2

Maybe it has to do with Coopertition? Maybe you have to work with the opposite alliance?

Or maybe linking and unlinking to a rail?

Linking to another robot? Meaning some part(s) of the robot may extend outside the bumper zone?

A third alliance...? (Don't think so)

Hmm...

EDIT: By the time I typed and posted this, it seems a bunch of other people also posted my ideas. Sorry if I repeated things.

Though, a 3rd Alliance-White Alliance, would be quite interesting...

I am sure others will have better ideas, but this is just spur of the moment.

Re: 2011 FRC Game Hint #2

I doubt that they would ever actively link robots, considering how many simply end up not working, possibly crippling an alliance. Maybe the linking is metaphorical--your score is tied to that of your opponents:

An extremely coopertition heavy game.

Re: 2011 FRC Game Hint #2

Crap. There was a second hint after all, looks like I was wrong...

I really, really, really hope this means that there are going to be multiple scoring objects or objectives. That would be too cool.

Or another Alliance. That'd be cool too.
