Go to Post I suspect the GDC is enjoying watching teams wrap their heads around this ranking algorithm.... and is probably a bit surprised that it has taken teams so long to clue in to the options this ranking system presents to them. - dtengineering [more]

Doing some scouting, and confused...

So, this is my first year of intense scouting, and the Michigan tournament structure is confusing me a bit. Are the district competitions, say, similar to the semifinals? I mean that as those who come out on top of all the district competitions compete at MI state champs, and only those can go to the championship?
Please help me out on this.

Sort of.

All MI teams compete in 2 district competitions. At each district competition, the teams earn points towards the State Championship. The top X teams (usually around 65 or so) in points after all the districts are complete are invited to MSC. If a team doesn't want to go, the next team on the list gets a spot.

District CA winners also get an automatic bid.

After MSC, the 3 RCA winners, the 3 winners, and 3 other teams (I think it's 2 RAS and 1 EI) get slots at the Championship, along with the top 9 teams that are left (or appropriate subs for teams that don't want to go). MI gets 18 total slots, not counting preregistration.

There's a MI Rules Supplement somewhere on the FIRST in Michigan page. That may help you out a bit.

BTW, you don't really need to do intense scouting, two words can describe the teams from MI going to the CMP : "Shock and Awe"

Yeah, I saw that. I have a list compiled of all regional winners, and I was like O_O.
