Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

Some possible analysis from my boss while I do actual work

Code:
31   88 27 41 53, 
62 23 41 41 53 26   41 23 83 97 53 88   97 88 53 31 97   31   26 23 83 83 53 88, 
33 23 41 41 53 26   93 27 64 26 23 83 97   99 53 23 97 93 97

Pair Counts:

By number:
23 = 6
26 = 4
27 = 2
31 = 3
33 = 1
41 = 6
53 = 7
62 = 1
64 = 1
83 = 4
88 = 4
97 = 6
93 = 1
99 = 1

By frequency:
53 = 7    E
23 = 6    I
41 = 6    T
97 = 6
26 = 4
83 = 4
88 = 4
31 = 3
27 = 2
33 = 1
62 = 1
64 = 1
93 = 1
99 = 1

English Frequency list:
E T A O I N S H R D L C U M V F G Y P B V K J X Q Z

53 = E
41 = T
23 = I
31 = A
26 = N

A   88 27 T E, 
62 I T T E N   T I 83 97 E 88   97 88 E A 97   A   N I 83 83 E 88,

First row last number seems to be identical to third row last number, apart from the first two digits (62 in the first and 33 in the second).



I'm afraid only 31 and 88274153 were found by the website... But I think it may have somehing to do with it. Maybe each number represents a letter and 88274153 stands for "P"?
I've been going through each pair of two numbers. Nothing too conclusive yet.

Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

Regarding the whole 3 alliances theory, there are about 10 FIRST Fields built, and many teams also have their own fields that they made. These fields are all 27x54 ft fields, and if there would be a 3rd alliance this year, FIRST would have had to restructure the formation of the field. It most likely would not be a rectangle like it has been in years past, therefore, it would not be the wisest move at all for FIRST to decide to change the shape of the field.

Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

The fact that thhis is labeled hint #number three seems to suggest both thee Rick Astley photo and the post about this hint were actual hints. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

I find the kit dimensions more interesting.

Quote:
AndyMark Drive Base Kit:
Size: 6" x 7" x 30"
Why is this not 38" long? It should be at least that big to fit a standard kit bot chassis rail? (I hoping this is just a typo and they didn't shrink the starting size to fit more robots, i.e. 3 alliances on the field)

Also the veteran kit stayed just about the same weight as last year.

Yellow Alliance.....

2 vs 2 vs 2.

Round game object.

Maybe a redux of Coopertition FIRST "Never gonna give you up, Never gonna let you down"

Lots of up and down motion

Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

Not sure if this is anything, but when translated from decimal to ASCII, the output is this:

 , 憞

ៜ ⧍



And it perfectly fits in the translator (no excess lettering or anything).

Re: 2013 ACTUAL game hint!!!

So the number 31 is repeated twice, so when searching it into a regular google search, one of the top links is this: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/st...n31/index.html
This may refer to the game in some fashion because FIRST has been known to relate games to NASA missions and other accomplishments.

In the rookie KOP only red and blue bumper material is provided. Indicating two alliances, not three.
