After having lost 3:5 against CIT Brains, we played the Darmstadt Dribblers in the small finals. We already met them in the German Open Final and the finals of the last two RoboCups and as so many times before, lost this game as well. However we ended with 4:8 and even were in the lead [...]
CIT Brains filmed the half-final, so here’s the uncut version. As you can see we still had some stability problems.
Yesterday we played the rest of the round robin games and the quarter finals. We won all of them and will post a longer report soon, but right now our full focus is on the semi-final against CIT Brains this Sunday morning.

Starting tomorrow we will be at the RoboCup and provide you with daily updates on our [...]
With our flights leaving Berlin tomorrow morning, we have packed all we need or possibly much more than we need. Most importantly our robots are safely tucked away in their cases.
