2016’s game was First Stronghold! Teams of 3 had to compete to take down each others defenses, launch boulders into their castle, and claim victory by scaling the tower. Our robot, nicknamed the Warsprite, was able to pick up boulder, launch them into the high goal, and cross every single defense besides the low bar and draw bridge. Early into our first competition, our climber malfunctioned and we were unable to use it for the rest of the season. We learned many new skills not only from experience, but from other teams and new mentors.
