Re: 2013 Game?

Since the GDC is so big on cooperation, I think it would be cool, if robots had to pass game pieces from one to another to score. Nothing more specific than that right now.

Re: 2013 Game?

This is a completely random guess, but I think the game this year is going to be dodge ball, where you can hide from your opponent behind tall cubes, and for the endgame you have to climb on top of the cube to score points. I think that would be a fun game, but probably not to likely if they're continuing the pattern of a sport, no sport, sport etc this year.

Re: 2013 Game?

Another thought. Because I believe the kinect will be more favorable for use next year (The GDC will make it so), The Game might have somehting to do with seeking out objects on the field or avoiding them. Kinect would be useful for both. Maybe the game is to do something WITHOUT knocking over stacks, since the stacking seems to be a popular guess this year?

Cool Re: 2013 Game?

Maybe this year's game will have the drive team not on the field. Maybe you will have to use the Kinetic to detect obstacles and use the video to drive by or find objects. The game piece a tub, crate, or tetra and you have to stack them some how.

I really don't see a radical change like this happening anytime soon. FIRST is all about growth right now, and this kind of thing(extensive autonomous or programming heavy games, if I get what you're saying) is very tough on rookie teams, and would probably discourage them. Stacking is cool though.

Edit: or did you mean just that the players just can't see the field and have to use video to do so?

That might actually be pretty cool. Navigation purely by using the RGBd data from the Kinect. I just can't see it actually happening... yet. My guess would be that the Kinect would be more integral to the hybrid mode... either it will be required or worth enough extra points to make it worthwhile.

Regardless of what type of game they go for, I think it's going to be more fast-paced and spectator-friendly. I think the bridges were one of the best endgames we've seen so far... not necessarily difficult but still dramatic because of the occasional 3-robot balance, and yes, flipping robots

Yeah the GDC wants the game to be entertaining, so therefore whatever game they come up with has to be entertaining

Re: 2013 Game?

I think a stacking game is gonna happen, havent seen one since 2005 (Triple Play), and they havent used a tetra since then, but more than likely it gotta be a stacking game

Re: 2013 Game?

Well I think the game is kind of obvious after you think about how FIRST has decided the games in the previous years. In the past they have made the game relate to modern day events. For example, the Lunacy game was the 40th anniversary of the moon landing and the Rebound Rumble game was during the NBA lockout. The only major event going on lately (that I can think of) is the robot landing on Mars. So I think that this year's game will be about the Martian landing.

I agree completely with you. Not to mention that this year is the ten year anniversary of Stack Attack. I would like to see some kind of tetra though.

Yea that true, but the one game mix up i would like to see is Toroid Terror/Triple Play mix together and Raising the bar where you do a pull up as the final part

So something similar to the Breakaway Endgame?

Re: 2013 Game?

How about a button or a pressure plate that robots activate that changes the field in some way? i.e. one robot stays gets on a pressure plate that opens a door and holds it while a teammate goes through. If the first robot gets pushed off of there by an opponent, the second robot will be stuck until somebody can open the door and save him.

Re: 2013 Game?

I personally want a game based loosely on racing, maybe have the robots go around an obstacle course of some sort while carrying an object like a crate or a ball, and take the average of each alliances' robots' times and who evers faster while still carrying the ball would win
