Re: Worst possible game

You guys are way over-complicating this. Just take the limit as FIRST approaches political correctness. Here is what you get:

Every team is a world champion (by default). They each get the same trophy. Awards are given for how many nice things a team said. There is no competition, each event is just a long field delay where refs and mascots dance to YMCA and the Cha Cha Slide. Everybody congratulates everybody on what a great job they did. Anybody that says a discouraging word or offends aybody else is banned for life.

Done.

Re: Worst possible game

A game like 2014 where there is a lot of hitting and open field. Every drive wheel on the robot is required to be an omni or mecanum wheel by rule.

I think you just described the best game of RC bumper cars ever.


Seriously though I wouldn't mind this at all.

Trump Terror: Robots compete (on regolith of course) to build a wall across the middle of the field. Teams then launch foam balls over the wall into the other alliance's territory. If an alliance relaunches the balls back across the wall, bonus points are given.

Does that make you feel better?

Re: Worst possible game

I think that the worst game FIRST could make would be a water game. I'm still not sure why everyone likes the concept of it. Then again I'm in the one percent that really enjoyed Recycle Rush, so that may explain some of it...

Another thought is a game like Stronghold, but all the defenses are constructed out of Regolith, and you must use the same drive wheels from 2009. Only one breach would happen in the course of the entire season, lol.

It would be cheaper to make teams use a low traction wheel, and drive on a low traction surface that also develops a lot of electrostatic potential. Then all the robots (still functioning) can slide around chasing each other until someone gets pinned and dumped on.

Or we could just play Lunacy.

Re: Worst possible game

Overdrive, but on regolith and the trackballs are required to remain in contact with your robot all the way down. It also has Stronghold's 15 inch frame perimeter rule, so try to figure that one out.
