FVC Game???

OK Kids, now that everyone knows there's going to be regional events, what's the game going to be like?

HINT 1: It's not a replay of the previous FRC game
HINT 2: Inflatable Clowns come in small sizes too


After the game is released we'll come back to the thread and award almighty guru points for the closest guesses.

OK, let me be the very first one to say it:

I heard that it is going to be an underwater game!

Re: FVC Game???

I'll bet you have to carry a football from across a pool. There are floating clowns you're able to balance on to escape the the hungry sharks swimming around...

Or whatever.

So does that mean that the VEX robot kits will all come with rotating lights like the FRC kits used to?

Re: FVC Game???

The game is due to be announced next month.
Thus far, there would be no almighty guru points awarded.

Too much to do for every match to be the same.
When is an alliance not an alliance?

This makes me think two things:

1) The field will be more FLL in nature than FRC (in that there are multiple sub-tasks, as opposed to the relatively few tasks FRC robots have)
2) There will be some sort of individual bonus on the field, such as the 1.1 multiplier from 2001.
