Re: WVROX 2018

48 registered a while back when there were far fewer than 24 registrants, but I don't believe I received any kind of confirmation other than our team number showing up on the team list. Could the event organizers provide an update on registration and what the next steps will be?

Well over 24 teams currently! - http://mars-first.squarespace.com/wvrox-2018/

Thanks.

Re: WVROX 2018

Hi!

4028 is very interested in participating this year! We had some questions about the logistics of the event. Do you know what time on August 3rd the event would start? Are there any practice matches, or do we go straight to qualification matches? Is there a general outline or schedule from previous years we could see to look at how the event was ran?

We are looking forward to registering and hope to attend!!

We had hoped to raise the number of teams to 32, but our host (who pays an enormous bill for the event) has capped it at 24. My mentor in charge of getting out the call for teams to pay the registration fee and finalize attendance should be in touch soon.

Currently the event is oversubscribed. We are going to start sending out official invites with requests to pay the registration fee and commit to the event. There will be 24 teams as in previous years - so if your bot survives the event, you are in the elimination rounds. We play one practice match on Friday morning before lunch, right after load-in. That gets everyone synched with the field. Then we play through until Saturday morning alliance selections and then elimination rounds (a total of 26 hours and 14 minutes is our goal). Works out to over 30 matches for every team.

How often do teams end up not paying? 4505 is 26th and we're really hoping we can play.

Usually a team or two decides they cannot attend and bows out. At 26th, you've got a reasonable chance.

Of course! We do a rotating shift for all the volunteers, so there is never NOT a need for any volunteer. We would love to see you there. I will post volunteer registration as soon as it is available.

That's awesome Alex. My team (2656) is on the list to compete. I'd be interested in picking up a Volunteer shift sometime during the event. Looking forward to checking out the Volunteer registration info when it's ready!

Any idea when this will begin? Before Champs? During? After?

456 is ready to commit and pay now. We just need to know how.
