Looks to be a fun field this year. Especially with the robots not so close at the start. :)

This game looks very promising. First Botguy was in the valley and now he's way up there! (Botguy needs an elevator) :)

I think this game is going to call for a lot more complex arms and manipulators as well as "smarter" robots with sensors and not pre-programmed paths.

Seems like a fun scenario. A very nice central platform. Looking forward to an active game this year.

yes, but there goes the winning strategy of James Lee, make the bots as simple as posible, and yet still have a chance. here's how that worked last time http://old.botball.org/season/2009/GDC/results

Anyone have any guesses as to what the platform in the middle is supposed to be made out of?

(I always think it's funny when Botguy's wheel's colored red instead of black. Botguy seems to be tricking out his tires!)
