Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Probably going to have the Ariel assist ball in it as a game price. They used the two scoring platforms form recycle rush as the defense platforms for stronghold and now the 6 totes and a can for the height from the boiler this year.

I wouldn't want to scout that.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

2018: I was definitely wrong about this year, so I'm gonna give some choices just by theme right now:
-Scifi/Space
-Jungle
-Western
-Pirates
We have a shooting game for 2018, correct? I imagine all of these can lend themselves to that, but my personal thoughts are Western, Jungle, Space, Pirates, in that order, Jungle is so high up because I think that FIRST wants to follow their Animal based FLL theme.

Might be necro-posting at this point (I'm honestly not sure of the limits to that) so I'm very sorry if this intrudes on anything, but over the course of GKC, I thought over this, and along with something a teammate pointed out, I think I have a pretty good idea of what could happen:

First off, my teammate pointed out that in the last two years, along with being the beginning of theming the games, they also just so happened to include corsets in the costumes, feel free to disagree or take this in another direction, but from that I determine that my top 2 themes for 2018 are Pirates and Western, both would properly fit the "shooting" slot in the 4 year cycle, and seem like safe bets to me.

I would say that Pirates are more likely than Western due to a pirate shooting something could be compared to a cannon rather than a revolver in a Western theme, however I am 99.98% sure that even with a pirate theme, there will be no water.

If they really want to get crazy, they could make a direct sequel to SteamWorks (Make a FRC Game Universe, it is Disney working with them, after all.) where the ships are in the air, with air Pirates!

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

I personally think it will be a couple years before we get to play with footballs, but next year could very easily be a no-shooting game. We've had a lot of shooting recently and could easily get a good (not recycle rush) game that includes defense without any shooting, could involve manipulating large game pieces such as totes that you have to fill with treasure (if it's pirates maybe). We've also been climbing for 2 years and could see a year without it.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Calling it now. Western theme with a train somehow integrated would be pretty neat.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Realizing that the GDC probably hasn't chosen a game yet (nor its theme), I think that they'll look at this thread for ideas that they shouldn't do.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Whatever it is ... hopefully it is a better spectator game. I thought last year's was a good game and fun to watch. This year's is very hard to watch with all the blind spots.
