    Tide Pod vs Captain CURC match

    At Robogames Tide Pod won the match with a score of 2 to 0. That particular match uncovered a S/W bug in the target plate system which was unknown. This is the only known match where the bug surfaced. The current target plate system has been very reliable and therefore has not been under as much scrutiny as in the past. Now that the bug has been uncovered it will be fixed and the target system will be even better.

    The time that Tide Pod's score reached zero was before the match was paused to re-attach Captain CURC's front plate. Captain CURC actually won the match with a score of 7 to 0 at that time. The video is presented "as is" and the score reflects the incorrect Tide Pod score from 2 points down. Sorry about that to Columbia University Robotics Club. As compensation, for Robogames 2019, we offer an extra health point to CURC. If you happen to earn a pre-qualification video health point then that would be added to this one for a total of 2 HPs.

    This is the first match at Robogames 2018 between Apophis and Nomad. By watching these matches you can see what works and what things can be improved. Several good skills to acquire; become more proficient at blind full reverse for some distance without hitting things. Also cutting diagonal corners for speed. As well as getting much better at the ricochet shots. Quickly going through narrow allies is an advantage.

    Re: 2018 Robogames Mech Warfare Final Results

    This is a series of excerpts showing robot problems that happened at 2018 Robogames Mechwarfare. While these are common problems that occur there are many more that have happened in past Mechwarfare events that are listed at the end of the video. Actually this year was not as bad as prior years. In 2017, I think 4 robots had the toggle power switch turned off by a bb hit. Some of the switches were well hidden, inside behind target plates. Those bbs, given the gift of velocity, can find their way into little gaps and bounce around inside the robot guts.

    Well, i remember at least one! :-X

    Btw, this video should be mandatory watching for anyone who wants to compete. If you can avoid all the issues shown here, YOU WILL MOST LIKELY WIN!
    Robustly being able to see the video, control the mech, and fire the gun is "all" it takes...
