2010 – Breakaway FIRST

The Game:

A soccer-like game, except with bumps dividing the field into thirds. In order to get from one part of the field to another, robots had to either traverse the bumps or go under a tunnel, making offense-midfield-defense play logical. Also, there are 2 goals per side and 12 balls, up from the traditional 1 and 1, respectively.

New and interesting:

An innovative field management system kept score automatically and made returning scored balls into play easy.

The Competitions:

Team 20 in the semifinals at WPI (and getting stuck on top of a soccer ball). 1811 teams competed in 43 regionals.

The WPI Regional winner, and a division semifinalist at Championships!
