My other guess is that a big ball game is coming up, since the last one was 2014, so there won't be any students left that worked on the last big ball game. Either way, I really hope that the field is at least low this year, if not flat. But I have a feeling that it won't be flat, since we've had two pretty flat fields in a row.
My bet goes on a racetrack pattern (one loop being the Blue Alliance territory ,or quadrant, and the other one being the Red Alliance's space) with an inclined surface on which, to maintain the center of the path on the track, robots will have to maintain an "orbiting velocity" and maintain it to stay "on path", or increase or decrease it to maneuvre to the upper or lower edge respectivally, especially so if the 2009 Lunacity surface and wheels are re-cycled.

It's been 4 years since the last game with an inflatable game piece.

Re: 2019 Game Speculation

Personally I'm thinking that the ideas about a "docking" mechanism of some sort, maybe for a climb, is relatively likely.
Though really I'm just excited they got Neil DeGrasse Tyson for the theme reveal video.

I am really hoping for a frisbee game. I did not get to do FRC during frisbee year and I really want to build a frisbee launcher.

Space is dark so what if the field is very dark or darker than normal to simulate space

I think a game played in the dark could be interesting, but not every venue can control their lighting 100%.

If they integrate the lighting elements into the field then it would be relatively easy. Just dim the lights for the whole venue and have lighting on the field which they would turn on in between matches.

The only problem I see with this is that it could be tough for spectators to see the match.

Alternatively, in space the sun is much brighter and has more of a glare than on earth so they could do the same lighting concept and have bright lights on the field to make it more difficult.

Re: 2019 Game Speculation

Will it be more challenging if its dark? It pretty much hard to see the opponents, but yes that will be an interesting feature.

No need for total darkness... The field will be lit with blacklights... Bring back them funky light-in-the-dark posters!!! and glow-in-the-dark positioning strip for the bots and gamepieces...

Hey...Some of us had those black lights, glow in the dark posters, wore white "T" shirts so we could actually see and track who we were talking to, and listened to really groovy music man. Don't knock it till you have tried it.

It would be really groovy to have Destination Deep Space in that kind of environment that actually mimics deep space. And, you would hardly even notice those white and other colored stars applied to the field perimeter when the bright lights were on, but just before blast off, and the lights go down, and the black lights come on....Wow....It's Groovy in space man!

Now, can we please get some Hendrix and Led Zepplin approved before the season starts. Ground Control To Major Tom......Take your protein pills and put your helmet onnn.... Ok, at least we will have that.....every 4th song played as far as I'm concerned.

Some can even correctly sing if they like........Flight Control to Major Tom....

Re: 2019 Game Speculation

No worries though, lava lamps to be provided on every shelf of every driver station on both ends for low level driver safety lighting of course. Just so we know you can see your emergency stop buttons.

Because nothing slows life down and really mimics the weightlessness of deep space in the destination, like black lighting and lava lamps, and stars that come out only when you turn the lights down low.
