Hey everyone,

YAC is pleased to announce that, assuming all goes to plan, Botball Live will stream the 2012 Oklahoma Botball Tournament. We've been working late hours for the past few months getting the system ready, and we hope everyone enjoys it. The main feature that you'll notice is the improved video quality, but there are many improvements behind the scenes, which we will discuss at a later date.

Remember, if any problems come up, notify us in the Botballer's Chat, and we'll have our technicians fix it ASAP.

Will the tournament videos be uploaded to the website in full so we can go back and review them later?

That's our aim. We had some technical issues at the tournament that made the video archiving system somewhat more complicated to operate than we were hoping. At the moment, it looks like most of the matches will be uploaded, but there's still some work to be done in that area, and we're all fairly busy with school / work / Botball / KIPR Open. We're making progress, but we don't want to give a projected date of upload, since deadlines always seem to jinx us.

TL;DR: Yes, eventually; stay tuned.
