Re: Rumors ANYONE?

2014-2015(I think) Vex game: boxes to be stacked on cylindrical posts
2015 FRC game: boxes to be stacked, and cylindrical cans to cap those stacks
2015-2016 Vex game: balls that can be scored in low and/or high goals, climbing/scaling
2016 FRC game: balls that can be scored in low and/or high goals, climbing/scaling
2016-2017 Vex game: cubes and "stars" that are thrown across the field, climbing/hanging, and a "fence" in the middle of the field
2017 FRC game: inflatable cubes? Stars or those spiky inflatable balls would be unusual pieces...

Re: Rumors ANYONE?

Based on last year's game having more water than 2015 (moat vs. nothing), I can safely predict that extrapolating onwards, 2017 will have puddles, and 2018 will be held in a pool.

Re: Rumors ANYONE?

The rumor I heard is that CD will collectively guess the game wrong again, but the launch video will somehow be even more campy than last year's Monty Python filled introduction.

Re: Rumors ANYONE?

This years game will be Olympic themed.
Since we had soccer and basketball, maybe this time it will be fencing or a relay race.

Jousting would be too much fun. Might have to wait another 4 years for the medieval theme to cycle around again.

Re: Rumors ANYONE?

The hint video last year was released on October 14th. Based on the reasoning given for releasing a teaser instead of a hint and the game's name this early opposed to not at all in previous years, I would expect FIRST to release another teaser sometime around mid-October.

Ether is on the GDC and this years game will involve answering complex math quiz questions.

There will be a single year, 2018, in which there will be Championship events in St Louis, Houston, AND Detroit.
