Patiently waiting for hint #2

Well we figured out hint #1.

Locomotion= towing something. This is all we care to divulge on this.

Now we need the rest of the clue coming on hint #2

Re: Patiently waiting for hint #2

after looking at the pdf found here, it says "The 2011 Hint". After seeing that, it looks like it might be the only one

There certainly are quite a few responses in the Game Hint #1 thread. Everything is speculation at this point.

Re: Patiently waiting for hint #2

By the looks, 1114 has already figured out both #1 and #2. They're still behind 71, who is just about done with their robot for the 2012 season, is getting driver practice for 2011, and is working on their robot designs for the 2013 water game. You're still way behind.

Re: Patiently waiting for hint #2

I'm hoping that we receive hint #2 a week before kickoff. This will give a huge spark to all teams and get the FIST community buzzing.

So all I want for Christmas is Hint #2.

Dear Dave,

I've been a good student this year. Can I have hint #2 for Christmas?

No wonder!

But 71 is still behind 25, who has made 3 different robots for 2011 for small scrimmages, finished the mechanical side of things with their 2012 robot, and is water-proofing their electronics as we speak for the 2013 game.

Bill's blog said "In light of the upcoming holidays, stand by next week for upcoming game hints."

I also believe that Dave has been hinting at multiple hints (*facepalm*), and while that doesn't mean much on it's own, I'll believe what Dave says if there's some kind of backup from Bill.

When I saved it, the image title was "FRC 2011 Game Hint 1" which implies there will be a FRC 2011 Game Hint 2.

Unfortunately, they the FRC 2011 Game Hint 2 isn't already uploaded...(assuming it has the same file extension, and is in the same directory, and has the same name pattern (FRC 2011 Game Hint #))

Last year, they didn't use similar name patterns, I don't know what the names were, but they followed different patterns.

sorry if I was redundant

Re: Patiently waiting for hint #2

Answer to Game Hint #2: Everything you guessed in Game Hint #1 is false. Spend 48 more hours dismantling the hints.
