Re: anyone have any ideas about next years game?

i think if somehow there were walls used in next years game it would bring it to a whole new level!
anyone every play indoor soccer? well,the ball is allowed to bounce off the wall and still be in play. something like that would be so awesome i think!

Re: anyone have any ideas about next years game?

Going off of one of the reasons to take a Break away from break away heres my idea. The reason was (correct me if I'm wrong) "You wonder if soccer was played with 12 balls americans would actually watch it." What I say to that is "You wonder if FIRST was played with 12 footballs the general public would actually watch it."

Re: anyone have any ideas about next years game?

Because it's FIRST 20th year, my guess is that the game will combine all three elements of the first logo (circle, square and triangle) I have no idea how though... =\

Actually, I doubt it. They tried that in the FTC (don't remember when, could be in the FVC days) and from what I've read on these fourms (seeing as there is no FTC in Israel) it was a failure of sorts... forcing something like the logo onto gameplay would be just that: forced and unnatural. I doubt the correct way to design a game is by what kind of signs you'd have in it and adding those signs into the game would make it even worse. At the most I can see them doing something like that with Vision targets, where one is circular (like this year's), one triangular and one squared. It would give the programmers a challenge though...

Re: anyone have any ideas about next years game?

Anyone else think we're (including me) a little obsessed? The seasons over and were already onto the next one.
There are ceirtain elements of each game that I'm 99% sure won't change:
Autonomous period
Bonus round
Same shape of field (other then the corners which tend to change)
2 alliances of 3 teams each
There will be human players
Bumpers are needed on the robot at specified hights

Thats about all I'm sure about untill the game is released.

Hey, the GDC starts planning for the next year as soon as the new game is out. We're actually a little slow, by their standards.

Kara's right. I think a goal we should have is, as a collective, come up with a rulebook of our own before kickoff. We should be able to do it

I say we have a scuba-bot game! The would seriously be epic

Re: anyone have any ideas about next years game?

Its early, but is anyone else thinking the 2012 game will involve some element of the field/world falling apart, and we're simply trying to make the robots survive/remain mobile for 2 minutes?

Re: anyone have any ideas about next years game?

Just a thought, wouldn't giving us really small game pieces such as marbles be really hard? Trying to grab and fire thouse things would be a fun chalenge. Also not letting them get swept up into unwanted parts of the bot would be bad.

Considering that most teams can barely stay together *now*. I don't know how much more FIRST would have to do before everyone starts falling apart.

YES!!!!!!!! after two minutes, three feet of water floods the field, but that would be messy and hard to control. I would feel sorry if your robot got a little wet...
