Re: 2018 Game Speculation

I think a cold war-themed game would be cool. The goal could be to put fuel and/or uranium in a ICBM, a mechanic could be the uranium mine which would be the neutral zone and retrieval zone, but could also act as a hazard zone in which you could only stay in for x amount of time or would be penalized (tech fouls, robot disabled due to high radioactivity, etc.). I am thinking it would look similar to stronghold.

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

A large volcano has emerged in the center of the FIRST field. A crust of volcanic rock is causing pressure to rise dangerously. You've been tasked with building a robot to dismantle the lava rock crust to cause smaller, less damaging eruptions. The center of the volcano is inaccessible, but you may work from a narrow platform to collect lava rocks from the center. You then must cross the outer slope to reach one of three unloading stations. Each station, when filled, is enough to trigger a mini-eruption. Work quickly to fill each station, as every 30 seconds the eruption strength increases. Filling a station within 30 seconds will erupt only a few (four) alliance-colored lava gamepieces (tbd) with it progressing (to ten per station) throughout the match. A final eruption (for any unfilled stations) will happen at 30 seconds remaining. After an eruption, pickup and deposit the lava (tbd) into cleanup bins. Any unbinned lava pieces count against the final score. HP can add additional opponent's lava to the field, but if they cross an invisible plane while doing so they are sacrificed to the volcano. Endgame: a battle for the platform. Game alternatives: a double volcano with cross traffic for loading/unloading. *tbd - frisbees, whiffle balls part deux, 6" pieces of tubing, foam rings, etc. Names: FIRST Core, Hot Spot...but please no wifi hotspot in the stands, Dean's Peak, FIRST Eruption (w/ theme song by Van Halen).

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

Sometimes, I wonder if the Game Design committee actually comes to threads like this to gain inspiration for future games. One of these could be a 2019 game!

As long as it isn't Lunacy I'm happy. Mars game, normal gravity, no altered friction coefficients... I am peachy!

Re: 2018 Game Speculation

I hope we get a different end game. Both of my years in FRC have had climbing endgames (Steamworks and Stronghold) so something like the bridge balance (2012) or mini bots (2011) would be pretty cool.

I think we can all relate to that.
