In the qualifying Central Region rounds, most victories were defined by small point differences. In the final round, the game ended with the Green Planet robot shooting leaves into the Moon. This demonstrated the outstanding improvement in the quality of most Robocon teams, as well as the perfection of their robots. They have become very powerful robots indeed.

It was the steady design improvements of its robots to meet the requirements of each round that helped the DTU Bigbang and DTU Pollux to have such spectacular wins. It defeated three other teams, the TNT-EX (from Tran Dai Nghia University), Sao Do - Truong Sa (from Sao Do University) and LH-NVN EAGLE (from Lac Hong University), to become top of Group C and reach the 2013 Vietnam Robocon Finals.

DTU – Pollux also got a ticket to the top 16 finals.
