Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

things from bill's blogs:

picture of design committee on stairs for bill's birthday

Title: The view from 3000 feet - discussing dean flying - plains use a technique known as stepping, when they lose fuel they get lighter and need to maintain a new optimal altitude.

Title: Two steps forward one step back.

he made bold STAND by in the last entry

Now we add locomotion

Conclusion: Either we are not allowed to use wheels this year and or their are stairs we need to climb

Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

I loved the 2004 game where it had stairs and the 2010 game where we had to climb... I love hanging games and staircase games, i think it is unique and a challenge. I would love to see another one!

Must be something in the WNY water -- I came to the same conclusion... ("Conclusion", in this case, meaning "near-baseless speculation".)

...of course, there's the possibility that the "or" in your statement should be an "and"...

Certainly more interesting to watch than driving around in circles on a flat field. Sorry, 2008.

Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

with the idea of combining games, the idea of the game name being "loco-motion", and the reversed picture, possibly something like overdrive except alliances go opposite ways?

LOL That would be absolute madness. The 2008 game wasn't terrible, but I think they need to leave that game type alone for awhile.

Along with the idea of Loco-motion being the name of the game, could it be possible that they are going to mess with our motion, kind of like they did in 2009 with the 1/6th gravity effect.

Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

The term 'Loco' is Spanish for 'crazy' indicating a crazy motion as part of the dance. What does this mean for our 'bots?

Given how much effort gets put into figuring out the game hint by all of these smart robotics-enthusiasts, I doubt the GDC would think for a moment that reversing the image would trip us up. The source of the image was figured out within the first two hours of being released!

I think the mirror imaging means something. ...Or they anticipated this string of logic and mirrored it to throw us off.

Re: 2011 Game Hint #1

Of course my favorite Little Eva song is;
"What I gotta do (to make you jealous)".
This may not be important, but there is a line in that song;
"When are you gonna start acting like you really care"

I was just about to say that.. maybe cargo moving? Moving other robots? This game could be a blast just from those thoughts

I sent the picture to all my team mates of 2057.. my parents remember that picture and have indeed confirmed Little Eva.. Stairs sound like a plausible thing.. whatever it is.. I can't wait

Now all we need is for Dave to come in and change our thoughts

nah i meant it like one or the other or both

I think Jason from 340 posted the stuff about stepping a week or so ago
so yeah definitely something in our water

I think they will keep the third gate from last year so where do the stairs go?

can't go along the outside because of safety and no one seeing anything. could divide the field in three sections like last year and have 6 sets or divide it in half and have 2 sets. Could also be up against the wall like in 06. The point being there aren't that many field arrangements they can do with stairs, it limits them a bit.
