Re: Update 12

Personally I see this as a harmless joke. I like that FIRST is putting the work of FRC teams out there for all to see. I'd really like to see more of it. Was this the best avenue for FIRST to show off this video? Absolutely not, it should have been in a blog, but I still appreciate the direction that FIRST is headed.

Came here to say this.

Blog post? Amusing, fine. In an official rules update? Childish.

I expected better from the normally community-friendly, on message - and yes, sometimes funny - FRC folks.

Re: Update 12

While I think I'd prefer that FIRST have shared the amusing 10th Defense video via a blog post (or something a little less official), I hardly think it's worth all the negative sentiments...

FIRST intentionally just linked to the video, rather than making an attempt that seemed "legit" and would give people more than a moment of panic. If you didn't actually find it funny, then just make it a lesson learned that FIRST HQ does have a sense of humor (in case you missed the 2016 game announcement).

Re: Update 12

If the GDC intended for us to deal with dragons why was one not provided in the KoP?

Not all teams have room full of gold and priceless gems for a dragon to inhabit.

Also, what will the dragons be fed? I would assume this factors into the temperature of the breath. And from an event management perspective - will it be the responsibility of the person managing the defenses to wrangle the dragon? How big a dragon are we dealing with? This is important for districts who may not have the space to store a dragon.


(See GDC, if you can be stupid I can be stupider!) [1]



[1] If this doesn't show up in spotlight at some point I'm almost going to be sad.

Sense of humors don't belong in already complex and confusing documents.

It is also possible to have a sense of humor that doesn't compromise trust between a jester and the crowd.

That's my problem with this. You can say "Oh, it's just a joke", but everything in the team update is law at the competition. Could we say "Oh, GXX was just a joke from the GDC, you don't need to follow that rule?" Where do you draw the line?

If it is part of the official rules, keep it serious and clear.

Re: Update 12

Some of you folks are upset about this? really?

I saw the video earlier in the season...I guess it wasn't a surprise to me because of that. But yeah, the GDC has a sense of humor (which is showing through very well this season!) and this is the time of build season when we all need a good laugh.

No stress today...we just have to do 12 hours of work in 3 hours, load up the robot, and head up north for our scrimmage! Oh...did I mention we need to figure out who's driving the robot?

Yeah I think we are agreeing.
Hold on I'm going to change up strategy so we can demand Defense 10 per Update 12.
All this did was cause confusion and stress in a year where they already had an update where they had to address a defenses dimensions due to inconsistencies which a lot of teams were not happy about. This was playing with fire.

Yep. Blog post is OK, but (I believe anyway, that) the rules should be pure rules.
