Re: Team Update 17

I gotta kinda think they did that just to screw with us after the CD community exploded at the unprecedentedly drastic rule change between week 1 and 2. Sort of a WHAT? TU17 in between week 2 and 3? What is this, presto change-o rules every week?

Re: Team Update 17

It makes 100% sense to me. Most of the FIRST FRC management are from the early days of computing or government. It was not unusual to see pages that say

Quote:
This page intentionally left blank
So rather than have people worry that they missed an important Game Play Week 2 update (servers down, missing URL, etc, etc) they published Update 17. Nice, neat, tidy. Just what you'd expect.

On the other hand never underestimate the GDC ...

Re: Team Update 17

If you hold your computer monitor up to a bright light, it is very clear:

"We are NOT changing the rules because of 469 so quit asking"

Re: Team Update 17

Someone suggested something about this "Update". The GDC is pretty sensitive to what goes on in the FIRST world, including these forums. Could a blank update be a statement to the grumblings about needing rule changes? A statement that says, "we think everything is just fine how it is"?

Re: Team Update 17

this is my favorite update of the season...

i think it is most certainly a statement, without making one. i think the GDC likes the game right where it is at the moment.

I know why you're happy. And after careful reconsideration, looking at the rules through the eyes of a lawyer, seeing quite a few matches, (live and online), I have to applaud you and 125 for thinking outside the box.
