Re: Significant Change coming to FRC (in 2020)

I can only imagine this has something to do with the bag, or the roboRIO.

The bag? Eh, maybe. If they were going to do it, announcing now for 2020 feels about right.

2019 will be the fifth season of the roboRIO; the cRIO lasted six (with the 4-slot coming in midway), the PIC-based IFI system lasted five. So, maybe that?

I believe the 2Champz contracts run through 2020 (so a change there couldn't start in 2020), but correct me if I'm wrong. I doubt that bringing back Festival of Champions would bring such a tease, considering the original FoC didn't get a tease (nor did 2Champz).

Re: Significant Change coming to FRC (in 2020)

Significant change, more than a year's notice... my money is on a change to the season calendar. The dates for Champs have already been announced, and with the legal contracts signed with the venues, I doubt those will change. That gives us possible changes to kickoff or stop-build day...

It's already been announced that the roboRIO based control system will be used in 2020 (and 2021).

Given the previous announcement of an extended contract with NI through the 2020 and 2021 seasons for the "roboRIO technology", I doubt that's the case.
