Dear Challenge Participants,
Thank you all for participating in the RRC 2021, we hope you had fun!
It seems that in stage 2 we made the task a bit too difficult. Of the three teams that participated in the stage, none actually solved the task on the real robots. Ranking based on the rewards therefore does not make much sense as the differences seem to be mostly noise caused by the random initialisation.
Due to this, we cannot really announce a winner. However, we nonetheless appreciate the effort you put into the challenge and want to recognise this by awarding all teams who submitted something for stage 2 (namely thriftysnipes, grumpyzebra and dopeytacos) with the third place (and the corresponding prize money). There will be no best paper award for this stage.
