Well, I'd be pretty arrogant if I put my own team on the list, even if I do happen to like my own 'bot.... so how about we say the top ten, excluding your own team?

So, in no particular order:

111, 47, 469, 302, 27, 65, 16, 45, 217, 25

No one mentioned 192 254 258 359 831 or 330 they each did pretty well... and I must say I was more than impressed by team 814 spicey mustard, even thought they looked like a rolling couch.

I can identify all except 258 and 831 as West Coast teams. I don't recall where they are from. Maybe that has something to do with their absence from other lists? Everyone doesn't get around the way you do Carolyn.

BTW 814 was one of my favorites as well. If the riobot didn't burn you the fabric would.

Again, in no particular order...

111

25
60
254
1114

I'm sure there are teams that I've overlooked, but that is the nature of this type of list.

With the quality of bots this year this should be expanded to the top 25, afterall there were 800+ bots.

Missing from the great ones above are many great bots not at the Championship due to their number or lack of $$$.

Lets give credit to soem of the ones that were great at regionals but could not make the championship.

My favorite robot out of the top ten would have to be 25...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Heatwave, team 312. Their autonomous mode can not be compared to any other teams (except for maybe Wildstang who was able to usually take out a stack or two before getting on the ramp). 312 was able to take out an entire wall within seconds and it worked pretty consistently. I also was very impressed with Metal in Motion (343) with their overall performance. Good job to everyone!

All of the robots mentioned are great, but Hey!

What about Miss Daisy? (Galileo Champ)

Simple, efficient, 100% Reliable Auton Mode (Student Written GYRO CODE) and most importantly 100% STUDENT DESIGNED & BUILT!!

(we lost our engineers and sponsor this year)

Just my 2 cents. Best wishes to everyone in the off-season!!

cough902cough- couldn't go to nats, but still... they were the only people to pry us off of the ramp while parked and with a clean brake, that robot packed more power than i thought possible.

My personal favorite bot, as has been since I saw them at Buckeye, is 378 - I wish they would've been in our division.

I was kind of partial to 188, 121, and 126 in Curie.

Of course, the national champion alliance is a given.

winniefrom71: what about team 71, there robot would be in the top 10.

i would like to apologize for that statement. this person's views do not represent the views of team hammond. furthermore, team hammond member's views do NOT represent the entire team. i would like to apologize to anybody that might have been offended by that uncalled for remark.

Dont' worry big guy, we all know it's in fun and games. My top 10 list doesn't so much relate to the robot, as it does the team mates and drive teams. A well spirited and professional team can make a teams robot seem that much better.

my list -

469
16
47
217
461
1055

I'm suprised that there have been so few mentions of 365, 73, and 236.
Also, I liked 980 and 267's powerful and versitile robot

How bout everyones top lists not incuding their own team... we all know that your true favorite is going to be your own team.

I definitely see the way this list is leaning to the midwest and east. Only 3 times have I seen west coast teams mentioned...even then it seems as if it was prompted by someone else and an afterthought...oh well...

My favorites in no particular order
258,192,254,111,25,16,79,312,45,343,469,68,60,696, 180,108,
and many others I cant remember now...

First off, i wanna note that all the bots at nats (and those that i saw on the webcam from other regionals) were AWESOME! Everyone did a great job!

No-one mentioned 212 though! :( *THE TANK!* (check it out in the pic gallery)

Personally, i think 25, 233, 16, 68, 47, 111, and 45 were truly amazing (bots are in no particular order).

258 is the Sea Dawgs from San Jose- (the team the Golds are on). Their swerve drive won them an award at SVR this year which qualified them for the Championships but due to lack of funding and interest from the team members they were unable to go. 831 is a Hawaiian team- Mililani- they were partnered with the Sea Dawgs and team 840 at SVR. That little robot had quite a bit of power behind it. They were very reliable all through seeding- freak thing they had a problem during the elims... Oh, well I believe that they also had a lack of funding which prevented them from going to the Championships as well.
I myself am surprised that I actually made it out to California and for so long. It was a blast and definitely wouldn't have happened were it not for some really great people whom I am in debt to for a long time. Thanks guys- you know who you are!! ;)

How could I forget?, but then that is one of the teams I always think of by name rather than number. I kind of thought that it should be familiar, but just couldn't place it at the time.

831 is a Hawaiian team- Mililani- they were partnered with the Sea Dawgs and team 840 at SVR.

I don't think we've met 831 yet. But your information confirms my point. That some very good West Coast teams are missing from these top ten lists, possibly because they are west coast teams. Not to imply any deliberate slight on the part of others, it is just that we don't associate much with more eastern teams and so tend to be less well known. The BeachBots went to IRI last year (and had a great time in spite of a marginally functional robot) specifically to get to know some of the other teams that would be playing there. This year we might be back, but we might go to a different off-season comp instead, just to meet different teams. It depends somewhat on finances and interest.

It was a blast and definitely wouldn't have happened were it not for some really great people whom I am in debt to for a long time. Thanks guys- you know who you are!! ;)

I'm glad you had a good time. Come back anytime. Not that I had anything to do with it. But I was glad to see you in person.

*tink tink* (pennies bouncing off the screen) 192 and 254 are not only good friends of ours (go bay area teams ;)), but have great bots. And 359 was part of our Hawaiian Spicy Mustard alliance in the finals at SVR (it was 2 hawaiian teams and us).

Another bot I like was 701's bot. That triple-jointed arm was sweet. And I've been in love with 295's bot all season long. They were one of the only teams at Sacramento that has a better auton mode than us. :p

Everyone knows us as Spicy Mustard or Couch Bot now. I think we'll have to change our name... Bye bye Megaforce. ='(
