Well... my view is that you'll have a strategy attached to your machine, you'll have built that thing to do a certain set of things, so your first match will set your personal standard... then you can do better against yourself...
ok. maybe i'm reaching, but i like golf better than bowling (plus i really like Jessica's whispering announcer commentary...)
: Another analogy one can make (maybe a bit more appropiate) is that this game looks like bowling, because in golf you are playing against a standard score, while bowling is simply getting the most pins hitted.
: About Battle Bots, I believe this year they are trying to make sure the image that FIRST is a different think shows, and that is exactly what happened.
