announces the new challenge for the 2008-2009 VEX Robotics Competition
From the game description page:
Elevation is played on a 12'x12' square field. Two alliances - one "red" and one "blue" - composed of two teams each, compete in each match which consists of a twenty-second autonomous period followed by two minutes of driver-controlled play.
The object of the game is to attain a higher score than your opponent alliance by placing cubes into goals, and by "owning" goals by having the highest cube in a given goal. Points can also be earned by "parking" on the platform or by "controlling" the bonus cube.
A bonus is awarded to the alliance that has the most total points at the end of the Autonomous Period.
More information about the game is available on the Elevation
