Description

Look out Boston MassDestruction Is back!

Categories are:

  • 1lb
  • 1lb Plastic
  • 3lb
  • 12lb Sportsmans


Please see NERC for generic rules (http://www.nerc.us/rules.html).

MassD Unique Rules:

Plastic Ant: The vast majority of construction elements in your robot must be made of plastic. This goes especially for weapons and armor. Carbon fiber, kevlar, and fiberglass are not plastics so you should not put them in your robot. 3D printing is heavily encouraged, but not required. No fiber or epoxy reinforcing allowed on prints though, or chopped-suey carbon fillament!

12lb Sportsmans: To continue to see the growth of this class, the active weapon requirement and anti-wedge clauses are once again removed. However, kinetic energy weapons are still limited and you'll totally get more points if you do have an active weapon and no wedges AND if you hastily make everything from Harbor Freight parts the night before. What good are the points? Not really much, maybe to avoid the....


All standard NERC rules will still apply, and we will try to have a testing box in the pits. Let's keep being safe here!



Tournament Structure:

We will once again be running our modified-Swiss style of competition, ensuring every 'bot gets to fight at least 4 times. Highest-scoring four will be entered into a short double-elimination tournament to crown our winner and King (or Queen) of Denmark!

Tournament structure is subject to change without reason, but time-permitting you will be able to fight your robot at least 4 times if it's up to the task!

Schedule is shamelessly copied from previous events:

8 AM: Gates open, Safety opens
10 AM: Drivers meeting


As always, we'd appreciate any help we can get from kind volunteers showing up the night before for arena assembly or who want to serve as judges/staff for the event! We will be sending out a volunteering form in the weeks ahead for you cool people!
