HTWK vs. MRL - Game Report

The game against MRL was our last game of the group games. At the beginning we shot 2 goals after that MRL took a time out to fix some bugs. After the break we continued playing and scored another 2 goals. In the second half they seemed to have fixed their problems and where ready to play. Nevertheless we still managed to score yet another 2 goals - all with our field players this time, in case you're wondering. In the end we won with a total score of 6:0.

HTWK vs. HULKs - Game Report

The game against the HULKs was really interesting, because we could only play with 4 Robots. However they also had some problems in the first half, so we were not at a disadvantage with the HULKs. In the first half we made 2 goals, where the second was with our goalie Shredder. In the second half we only used 3 Robots against 4 Robots. As you can see they really like group hugs, especially in the first half. In the second half we also scored 2 goals, one of which again with our goalie. So we won with a final score of 4:0. All in all this was a really exciting and fun to watch game.

Arrival at Iran Open 2018

Yesterday we arrived in Tehran at 6 am. We flew via Istanbul, where the weather was bad. So we had a lot of turbulence while landing and our subsequent flight was delayed.

Airport Leipzig/Halle
The hotel is at the Olympic center, so we only have a 5 minute walk to the venue. Fortunately, this time there is internet, but it's very slow.

Today we'll test all Robots and perhaps we'll have a test game later in the afternoon.
