In June 2010, we played in the world cup in Singapore. Earlier that year, the ME and E subteams came up with a slew of improvements of our design and our robots were more reliable, faster and stronger than ever. Our newly formed controls subteam made sure that we have robust controllers that closely matched the current hardware. On the world cup, we could only play with 4 out of 5 robots and non-surprisingly lost. However, compared to previous years, we were miles ahead – all loses were close (not the previous onslaughts) and we managed to make very decent attacks during the games. We set up a few friendly games immediately after the competition and there we had our first tie (with Georgia tech) and our first victory! (with UC Thunderbots). After that, we are more motivated than ever to keep improving!
