Force II - 2009
Our niche with Force II was delivering “empty cells” from the outpost in the middle of one side of the field to the corner. We did not have to drive from the outpost to the corner - we could simply shoot the ball around 33 feet to the corner with our catapult! In addition, “moon rocks” and other game pieces could be picked up from the ground with a roller system and loaded into the catapult. It may have appeared to be a rather short robot, but when the catapult was fired, the height was just short of the maximum - 60 inches - that the rules allowed.
