Claytown, unless you make a time machine, time will go at its own pace. (Which I do admit is rather random )

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Also, robots+coffee=dead robot that smells like coffee. You may just have to settle for a water game. Or a quadcopter. I wonder how FIRST would regulate a quadcopter...
We need to wait unless you can get a time machine...

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Another thing. First Stronghold was medieval theme (1000-1400s). Then comes First Steamworks which is Industrial revolution theme (1800s). Next it will be furturistic, with quadcopters! (Around 2200-2600?) Can't wait to see the electronics doing that! It will be called First Flightworks! (This will totally be what the guys read when they're deciding the next game )

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

I have personally been mulling the idea of a game inspired by Tesla and Tesla coils. That would be fun and nerdy while not being over the top (*cough*steampunk*cough*). Tesla coils that 1 HP gets to sit in the whole game?!? HUH?!

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

2018 Water Game is confirmed.

FLL announced water games for next season: Hydro Dynamics and Aqua Adventure
https://www.firstinspires.org/commun...smi=4 4352054

Just like 2 years ago with the trash/recycle rush themes across the leagues, FTC and FRC water games will soon follow.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

The goal of the 2018 game will be to be the last of the six robots moving on the field. Robots will have to turn off the other robots at the power breaker. There will be no alliances until eliminations. In eliminations, alliances will engage in a large Risk style game where one alliance ends up controlling the whole field after one approximately three hour long match with all eight alliances.
