What’s the game played on 

Hi Jacob!

Our games have been played on several different surfaces over the years, but usually we play on carpet. The exact surface for the 2019 game will be revealed at Kickoff on Saturday, January 5, 2019.



Our pits that most teams bring the Worlds are 10X the size and logistical challenge than the robot. The robot would be just one more cart for a team to pull in. Crating, shipping, storing, and staging these machines adds way more complexity to the event. Just the manpower and space that could be eliminated by removing the crate and ship requirement completely would be substantial, and could potentially speed up the process for those teams that have no choice but to ship.
