Re: Team Update 17

How do you guys interpret "No changes"? I'm thinking that means bumpers are no longer mandatory. Can anyone confirm?

Re: Team Update 17

What was Frank thinking? Practically every team's going to have to rework their strategy now. Some of these things should have been day 1 fixes, and now any team that actually read the manual is getting screwed over.

Re: Team Update 17

We compete in two days and we don't have nearly enough time to edit our robot to the new standards. This is horrifying and it's making me shake wondering what we are going to do.

Re: Team Update 17

No changes? So we can't make any improvements to our robots?

What if a part breaks during a match? Does that count as a change itself, as well as changing out the broken part for an identical new one? Better hope your robot is a tank.

Re: Team Update 17

Well, looks like we are calling off the unbag time. No changes allowed anymore.

Re: Team Update 17

Keep in mind, that just because there are no changes to "General", the "Rules & Expectations for FIRST Robotics Competition Events", or the "Game and Season Manual", there may still be changes to other documents, such as the "Safety Manual".

I assume that's where the new "Designated Running Area" being instituted at events is documented.

Re: Team Update 17

I don't know about you guys, but I think these are the kind of changes that show that the FIRST is really learning what we want, at this rate, this years freshmen will see a water/flying game (both at the same time) by the end of their high school careers!

Re: Team Update 17

The only constant is change.
No change means no constants.

Universal law of gravitation is a lie.

Re: Team Update 17

*THIS POST INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK*








...or is it? The text explaining that it's supposed to be blank means it's no longer blank.

For those of you concerned about the "No changes," there is no issue affecting your robots. "No changes" doesn't have a rule number in front of it (e.g. R102* or G26*), so it is not a restriction.

*Examples only. Not actual rules.

Re: Team Update 17

I....I don't know what to think....Do we compete or do we just give up? I can't process this much at the same time. WHY GDC, WHY?

On a side note: Does this mean we played the game well?

They've finally done it, the madmen.

The GDC has finally outlawed the concept of time.
