Judging by this, I would guess that we have hit the nail on the head somewhere, but where?

Well, he did ask for that, Dave.

I'll ask for another hint in, oh, about 4 days; 6 if you're really feeling pressed for time to finish that rendering.

Re: 2011 FRC Game Hint #2

combining the first clue with this you get... "logo-motion!" Each member of the alliance gets a circle, triangle, or square. The first team to use all three of these (in the game format, such as scoring, placing, connect, whatever) properly wins!

I doubt any of you play video games, but there is one that came out quite recently (Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks), and parts of the game consist of you controlling 2 to 3 characters, each separated by walls, where you have to have a player do something to open up a passage for another character, and so on.

The point is that it would be completely logical and quite easy to create a game field similar to Breakaway, cut into 3 pieces, but unlike Breakaway, has walls that prevents the robots from moving through each section.

So imagine this: A game split into 3 separate "fields", each with a robot from each alliance in each field. Your robot would have to find a way to get balls over to the next side, or be able to catch the balls coming over and score points with them.

Interesting idea, huh!

Or howabout the three games that were voted favorite in the 20th anniversery poll? Your robot has to be able to compete in a subversion of each one.

The GDC will have made the miniture ones throughout off season, then when the results of the poll come in, they give you those three games. That's why the manual hasn't even be released for encrypted download yet. XD I can dream can't I?

I like this idea of the separation with walls but I would much rather have some inverted track above so you could transition from one side of the field to the other

A member on our team brought up the idea that maybe this hint could be that there are going to be three alliances... :/

Good Idea! That would be fun!!!

WHEN WILL WE HAVE AN ATR COMPETITION??? (All-Terrain Robot) I've always wanted a field with water on the floor, about 2 to 3 feet deep with floating islands, and rocky, mountainous goals, up high in the mountains!! You could have 4 types of robots: Robots who can go in the water, those who travel on land and jump from island to island, those who climb the mountain, and my team's robot: RoboCopter, the flying robot!!!

Re: 2011 FRC Game Hint #2

I honestly don't think that the FIRST logo is hinting at linking in the sense of the field and alliances. The only possibilities for linking would be the game objects themselves. My random guess that I came up with over the summer would be that they're going to combine an aspect of every past game. The linking in terms of locomotion along with the symbols in the FIRST logo linking together support my theory of linking all the games together. The logo could also be trying to remind of us its the 20th anniversary, which supports my idea further. But eh, who knows? (besides Dave Lavery and the GDC ) On a side note, some of the ideas have been extremely far-fetched; let's try and stay a little rational here

3 alliances with 2 teams on each? Or the standard 3 teams? That would be interesting!
