Re: 2019 Game Speculation

My guess:

- Game element: cylinder, maybe something like this made of polycarbonate: https://www.ebay.com/itm/06-Liter-Ti...AOSwgQ9V3Ly a

- Objective: Shoot through opening and closing storage bay doors

- End game: Get as many robots as possible onto a ramp that gets steeper the higher it goes (think y=x^2)

Anyone thought if the floor could be a combination of Lunacy, Stronghold, and Steamworks?
Parts where it will cause bot to slide.
Parts you have to climb over obstacles.
Parts where it's rugged.

Re: 2019 Game Speculation

I suspect a cooperation game to get off the planet together start crashed at two separate landing spots to start reach damaged mothership in middle OVER ROUGH TERRAIN, bring parts and launch endgame, winners bring most parts. There's also an alternate winning scenario for survivors that cant launch the ship but can survive

I think cause its deep space it's going to be a weird mashup of lunacy and Steamworks since FTC usually has some similarities with FRC I think there will both blocks and balls. and somehow like in Steamworks we will launch the rocket using fuel, but maybe a low friction floor like lunacy.

Re: 2019 Game Speculation

How about the opposite of a low friction floor? High friction! Wheels must be covered in hook sided "velcro".

What happens when the hooks wear out? Or rip up the field?

Instant DQ. Deep space is unforgiving.

Combination of random terrain like 2016 and floor like lunacy.

Re: 2019 Game Speculation

Taking into account the number of international teams in FRC at this moment any use "Lunacy" like floor or any other large field components based on materials which are only distributed in the US is highly unlikely.

If the international teams can't get their hands on the materials required to build the field how can they build and test competitive robots?

Re: 2019 Game Speculation

We seem to be on a climbing streak lately so I think that either there won't be a climbing challenge, or that we'll have to do/deliver something after we climb (deliver a game piece similar to the pyramid bins in 2013's Ultimate Ascent, or turn a crank that's behind a ledge 5' in the air or something). I also hope they'll bring back some coopertition challenge, partially because I think it was always an interesting aspect that was unique to FIRST.

The wildcard will be if they reintroduce minibots a'la 2011's Logo Motion.

Re: 2019 Game Speculation

Teaser with all the stairs, ramps and doors. Other clues like a planet with an ever changing landscape. Appears to suggest Stronghold style obstacles requiring the next level of suspension; climbing tracks, shrimp or articulating chassis' or axles, etc..
