[FRC Blog] So many things...

https://www.firstinspires.org/roboti...so-many-things

So... no standards this year? High goals, or some other kind of structure up there?

Re: [FRC Blog] So many things...

I don't think the field needs a high structure to function normally, however the way FIRST has created games in the past, it is likely there will be a form of high-goal.

Contents of the blog:

Quote:
Registration Payment Deadline

Remember that the registration payment deadline for your first event (first two events if you are a District team) is this Monday, November 20th. We recognize not all grant information has yet been released, and this doesnít give teams much time to make arrangements. Of course, we will continue to work with teams after the deadline as necessary to get their registration secured, but please work toward that Monday deadline!



Kit of Parts

Did you miss the big Kit of Parts blog yesterday? Be sure to check it out! So much information on FIRST Choice, voucher codes and more! Remember, voucher codes will only be available to teams who have secured payment for their registration fee. For more information about what this means, please see this page. Don't worry, once a team does secure payment, the voucher codes will become available.



Event Housing

Looking for team housing for your event? See this page for all the details.



Safety Animation Award sponsored by UL Update

Check out the updated Safety Animation Award requirements. A few teams asked if they could use copyrighted characters like Pac-Man in their videos. Just as with the music used in your videos, you can only use copyrighted characters or images if you have written permission. Weíve updated the award information to reflect this.

With the submission deadline of December 7th being only a few weeks away, you should think hard about whether itís worth spending the time and effort trying to get the OK to use a well-known copyrighted character, or just creating your own so you donít need to worry about it. Safe side says stick to your own.



No Team Banners or Standards This Year

You may have seen this blog talking about Avatars teams will be able to create this season. In a way, these are intended to take the place of the Team-created Standards or Banners that were flown over driver stations during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. There will be no spot on the field to mount your Standards or Banners from prior years, so best to keep them in your pit or leave them home in case we make space for them in the field in later years!

Note, team flags given to MCs to wave as teams are being introduced are not going away. You should still bring those!

Re: [FRC Blog] So many things...

There will be tunnels leading to secret levels up there, so a banner or standard is likely to disappear.

I don't think not having standards this year necessarily has to do with having something up there like a high goal or some sort of other structure. As the blog mentions, since we have the avatars this year, it would be kind of redundant to also have team standards. Also, I don't remember seeing many standards this past year for Steamworks, just in Stronghold when they were first introduced and better fit the theme of the game.

Not saying that the removal of standards couldn't mean that there's some sort of structure in the way, but I think it has a lot more to do with the fact that they just wouldn't make a lot of sense for this year's game.

Same. That place is amazing. Even just to think of the history of the building and sheet amount of work that went into it is amazing.

Fixed that for ya.
I know that it was announced that the field had the spots, but I didn't see a single standard this year in play.

I figured the avatar was replacing the standard.

I saw a few, mostly reused 2016 ones that never left the team's robot cart.
