This year, many highly anticipated robots, are only revealed by their teams in their first event.
The problem is, practice matches day isn’t streamed on Twitch, which means I have to wait another day to see what the robots look like, but… I HAVE NO PATIENCE.
Technically, these robots are already revealed, by being in the event, in the pits, and in the practice matches. But, the only people that can see them are the people that are also in the event. And I, want to see them too.
Therefore, I am asking for leaks. Please, anyone that goes to one of these event where prevalent robots are revealed for the first time, LEAK THEM TO ME. Post here, pictures, or videos of these robots.
For example, in these current events: Midwest Regional, St. Louis Regional, Great Northern Regional, Oklahoma Regional.
More specifically, I’m looking for leaks on team 1619 Up-A-Creek Robotics’ robot, In the Oklahoma Regional. Would be much appreciated. Thanks.
For starters load in isn’t a time to walk around the pits looking at other teams robots, there’s 3 whole days reserved for that. Also, I don’t intend to start an argument over whether it is ethical or not, but almost everyone taking close up pictures will ask permission before taking the picture and ask for seperate permission to share the image(s) publically if that is the intention.
Ironically enough this isn’t a post about my team but it is something we implemented for whenever we are not in the pit with the robot.
This is partially to prevent unauthorized pictures (if you ask we wont say no) but also due to the apparent sabatoge many teams experienced at champs last year. We figured somebody could walk by and quickly pull some wires out of robots but a robot under a cover is a little harder to stealthily do that to.
This did not prevent a weird moment on Saturday where when we walked in a few people thought the robot and cart were facing the wrong way, but beyond installing a hunting camera staring at our pit we have done everything we can think of to keep our robot safe when we are not present.
