2022 WA Robotics Playoffs
August 27 @ 7:00 am - August 28 @ 6:00 pm
- This ticket registration is for spectators, for both days.
- You do NOT need to register separately for either day.
What is WARP?: Teams of robot alliances play a tough and strategic game with strict rules but a free-flowing style. This is a FIRST Robotics Competition off-season event.
When: Saturday and Sunday, 27-28 August, 2022
Saturday: 7:00 am- 6:00pm. Set up, practise and share. The first half of the day is set up, meet all the other teams and share ideas, strategies, do all that last-minute work you didn’t quite finish and practise your skills. The second half of the day is the start of the competition.
Sunday: 8:00 am- 6:00pm. Game on! Your team will rotate through different alliances with other teams, learning how to get the best out of your robot and the collaboration with others. The final games will be with set alliances, and may the best robot teams win! (Formal rules for the 2021 challenge can be found here – 2022 rules will be uploaded when released in early Jan 2022) For a simple animated version of the 2021 game, view here.
