VEX Robotics Competition Nothing But Net

The new game for the 2015-2016 season of VEX Robotics is Nothing But Net, a game played on the same 12 foot by 12 foot field involving two primary methods of scoring: elevating partner robots at the end of the round and shooting for high goals. An additional stipulation is a set of rules regarding expansion from the initial 18 inch cube, forcing teams to shoot rather than dumping game objects into the goals. It should be an interesting year with all the design challenges of a multi-faceted robot.
