Re: 2011 FRC Game Hint #2

The two pictures are just there to antagonize us. They can't release any information until this Saturday.

Why would they pull the TM off this image?
Perhaps it means they are borrowing ideas from things that someone's already done...
Remix of old games, anybody?

I think that that would be an interesting twist......in the wrong direction. No autonomous would make the match kind of predictable, knowing that your opponents will start exactly where they are! Plus, there wouldn't be that all robots for themselves time where it's easy to score!

Re: 2011 FRC Game Hint #2

Further analysis of the picture:
Size is 336 by 237
The RGB values of the red in the triangle is 237, 27, 36

The 237 comes up twice... and 336, which cannot be a legal RGB color, reappears as 36 in the blue channel

Suspicious...

The significance is that SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE THERE IS NOT. What the missing thing is is the confusing thing.

...Wait a minute. The first hint was an album cover, reversed, and with the title removed. The second hint is the FIRST logo, normal, with thecompetition/organization tag and the trademark removed.

Both hints have something removed; an identifier or title. Could the game involve removing something from somewhere on the field?

--Don't go looking for no significance where there might be some significance that you can't see.
I think this is very right except one thing.

The first game hint was not the cover for locomotion. It was actually the cover for Little Eva's greatest hits, one of the songs being Locomotion.

The second hint, as someone pointed out, appears to be the same one used in the FIRST 20th aniversery logo minus some key features.

Both hints, however, have been stripped of words and dishinguishing marks so as to make the connection dificult.

Putting 2 and 2 togeather it seems to me that this points at taking the "greatest hits" of the last 20 years of FRC and rolling it up into one game.

It's back to the original picture! A mix of the best parts of all previous games!

Re: 2011 FRC Game Hint #2

I think we need to take in several aspect
1. both pictures were stripped of identification( obviously just to throw us off the trail)
2. the FRC logo simply tells us that this is going to be a FRC competiiton
3. though the picture was on little eva's greatest hits. the one listed the greatest was" locomotion".
leading me to belive that this year's competition will have something to do with trains or linking.

Can you really claim it's the "20th anniversary logo"? From this thread I thought that logo came out in '05 which would be 14 years of FRC

Good thinking though. Eric I think you're onto something.

Re: 2011 FRC Game Hint #2

Perhaps it's not WHAT was taken away but the fact that it WAS taken away. Game pieces can't be reused? Or instead of a game piece coming into the game during endgame, it is removed during endgame. Or we have something built on the field and have to take it down. Or better yet, that game (i forgot the name) where you take bricks out of the tower without letting the tower fall. I can hear the animation now "if a team takes a high brick, its 2 points, and if a team takes a low brick, its 4 points, however, if a team causes the tower to collapse, they lose 25 points. There are a total of 6 towers on the field, 3 blue, and 3 red. You are allowed to score points on an opponents tower only during the last 30 seconds of the match." XD

That would be a hazard for the robot, that unlike previous hazards, could destroy the robot.
