About the Competition
RoboMaster is a collegiate competition with over 400 competing universities across the world. Each university designs and builds multiple types of robot to face off against each other in a video game style competition.
RoboMaster University League
RoboMaster University League (RMUL) competition consists of a 1v1 or Standard Confrontation, and a 3v3 game format. Competing teams are registered for 1v1, 3v3, or both competitions for this season. While the rules and scope of each differ, the robots are similar, and the competition process for both are identical.
RoboMaster is a competition where robots (both human-operated and fully autonomous) compete in a video game-like game by launching balls at each other's "armor plates". The goal of the 3v3 game is to fight the enemy team, and destroy the enemy base. Additionally, RMUL robots fall into three "classes", Hero, Standard, and Sentry. In the 1v1/Standard Confrontation, the goal of the game is to deplete the enemy robot's HP through launching projectiles.
RoboMaster University Championship
RoboMaster University Championship (RMUC) competition has competing teams build 9 robots to compete in a basketball arena-sized field with low and high ground, ramps, bridges, and other terrain features to add a vertical dimension to the battlefield. In addition to a base, teams also have a forward outpost which they must defend. During the 7-minute round, teams must attack and destroy the enemy outpost, sentry, and base sequentially.
In addition to the 3 robots used in RMUL, 2 additional Standards are fielded along with the new Engineer, Aerial, and Dart robots.
RMUC Side Competitions
The RMNA community does not have enough teams able to compete in RMUC. However, some teams with the extra robots still develop and build the extra robots to eventually compete with in the RMUC International division. In RMNA Seattle, we host unofficial side competitions for the Engineer, Dart, and Aerial. These competitions do not count towards official RoboMaster rankings, but provide a goal for RoboMaster competitors and teams to work towards.
