After the first 36 matches of the SR2021 Competition, team HRS3 from Hills Road Sixth Form College head up the initial league leaderboard with a staggering 82 game points. They’re closely followed by the other 3 Hills Road teams as well as one of our rookie teams We Robots.
The league matches provide a proving ground for all the teams’ hard work over the past few months in preparing their robot code. There is also a prize for the rookie team which scores the best in the league, which both the We Robots team and Harris Westminster Sixth Form Team 1 are currently well placed for.
At the end of the league we announced to teams the details of our second game module. This sees the territories, that teams must claim to gain points, have ‘links’ added between them. Coupled with a new restriction that prevents robots claiming territories unless they can form a chain back to their starting zone, this makes for an interesting problem for teams to solve.
The teams now have three weeks to work on and improve their code before another 36 league matches are played over the course of next league schedule. Given this is only our first league session there is still everything to play for.

We look forward to seeing you over the coming months for the continuation of the SR2021 Competition.
