This year's FRC (First robotics competition challenge is robot soccer - also called Breakaway. The game was announced yesterday and now high school teams have 6 weeks to build a robot that can compete in the game.
I know we have a couple here who are involved in FIRST. (Michael Ernest I know because he tweeted it and there were some discussions last year - don't recall whom.) So logically, I posted here.
I think the game looks harder than the last few years. It looks cooler though and fun to watch!
I have two goals of posting here:
1) To discuss robot soccer
2) To ask those who follow soccer whether they think it is similar (I'm not to aware of soccer, but it seems like there would be a lot less passing here.)
* I'm in the United States, so when I say "soccer", I mean what the rest of the world calls football.
