Themed as “the rise of heroes”, The RoboMaster Competition 2016 has successfully brought in a lot of new elements such as “Robot Heroes”, “UAV”, and mobile basement, etc. The battle field this year was designed in different terrains such as “resources island”, “wasteland”, “broken bridge”, and “river” etc, and also added runes with different functions in it. The robots need to cooperate and work with each other. In the competition this year, One Point Five S created several new records such as activating the big “rune” for three times in one single match, destroying the opposite basement within the shortest time and successfully making “big hero fetch bullets by accessing the island”. Due to its high technology content, fierce competition, and great visual enjoyment, The RoboMaster Competition 2016 has caused a heated response with almost 20,000 on-site audiences in total and the on-line broadcasting was watched more than 2 million times.
