Due to COVID-19, there are a few key differences in how this event will be played:
Because of the online format, this event is held as a "Skills-Only" event.
This means that you will only play skills matches: driver and autonomous (no teamwork matches).
Each team will have the chance to play 3 driver skills matches and 3 autonomous matches throughout the event.
The robot with the highest skills score will win the event!
We will send out match schedules once all of the teams have joined the meeting.
This VEX IQ competition will be held entirely through Zoom. Before the event, I will send you the meeting link and password.
This means that you will need to have:
1. A device capable of joining a Zoom meeting with video;
2. A field and game elements to play matches on; and
3. The ability to compete under the Remote, Live Skills conditions described in the Game Manual: https://content.vexrobotics.com/docs/viqc-rise-above/VIQC-Game-Manual-08172020.pdf
We will be running matches live, and teams will be able to live stream their matches into Zoom. Per the Game Manual, the Head Referee will be a certified referee for this remote event.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
In order to be ready for this event, there is not much you will need to do other than build a robot and practice.
Make sure that you can join the Zoom meeting (if you're not sure if your setup is perfect, I will be on 60 minutes early at 8:00 AM HST to help anyone with potential tech issues. After we get you all set up, you can just relax and wait for the event to start)
Here are a few things that would be good to verify you have access to on the day of the event:
NOTE: New this year, you will be required to complete a consent release form for all participants on robotevents.com
Teams should plan to arrive before 8:45 AM HST. If you're not there at 8:45, we will contact you to make sure that you are still planning to attend.
We plan to start promptly at 8:55 AM HST and need time to prepare match schedules and coordinate check-in and verification.
Teams must be paid two weeks prior to the event. Teams not paid at this time may be dropped at the event partner's discretion to allow teams in from the waitlist.
Per VEX and REC policy, we are not allowed to live stream this event publicly (see Game Manual rules on Remote, Live Skills-Only events).
However, if you are connected to one of the competing teams and would like to watch, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We know that there is a lot of uncertainty about this, so if you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
We will be sending you email updates as the event comes nearer, so you should have all of the info you need :)
