Teams to Watch

So now that the divisions are out and public, what teams should we be watching at Championships? What alliances could be formed with the potential of taking it all? What do you predict for Championships 2012? What underdog teams might do well?

Re: Teams to Watch

I predict Archimedes will be a bloodbath for division champions. The Hawaiian Kids 359 put up a solid performance at Lone Star, but were almost upset by the Cats from Atlanta 2415 in an amazing Semifinal match. Alas, there is also the number one ranked offensive robot in the world, and with 3 World Champion titles, they're itching to match Beatty for their 4th. The HOT Team 67 will be on fire when they line up to take shots. But, all three robots will have to band together if they want to even put a dent in the Canadian Powerhouse alliance of 2056 and 1114.

Re: Teams to Watch

Einsteins finals will include at least one of the following teams from Arch: 2056, 1114, 67. That division is favored.
Galileo will see close competition but in the long run will be the underdog division.
Curie looks very strong but I cant help but believe the curse will persist.
I cant say too much about Newton, but I dont expect to see them make finals on Einstein.

Re: Teams to Watch

Considering the spread of powerhouse team across the four fields, I feel that predicting an Einstein champion is going to be really difficult; there is at least three powerhouse teams on each division.

Some examples include...
Archimedes: 67, 1114, 2056
Newton: 111, 118, 469, 1717
Galileo: 16, 25, 148, 399
Curie: 233, 254, 341

...and they are only a few of many others! Whatever alliances come onto Einstein will be incredible. I will DEFINITELY be watching the Einstein matches.

Re: Teams to Watch

I could see the main 2 teams from each field going to Einstein being:Archi-67/2056, Curie-233/341, Galileo-16/25, Newton-469/1717.

Re: Teams to Watch

Oooo, predictions!

I've never posted predictions on Chief Delphi before but here goes:

Archi: 67/2056
Curie: 341/1986 (due to triple balance over 987/254)
Galileo: 25/148
Newton: 1717/469

Einstein: 1717/469

Guessing the third robot is way too hard, so I'm not going to bother doing that.

Teams to watch: 16, 25, 67, 341, 469, 987, 1114, 1717, 2056. That's who I was watch if I wasn't affiliated with any team and wanted to watch some good robots do their things.

Are you joking? 469 and 1717 are the two strongest shooters in FIRST (based on Teleop OPR and most division wins), and are both on Newton. That said, I don't know how good of an alliance they make together. I wouldn't be surprised to see them battling for Newton Champions. Newton has a deeper field than the other divisions (higher avg OPR) so the third robot on the alliance should be a bit better. When you've got the number one and two robots battling the three and four, there isn't much variance. But effect of that third robot could be everything on Einstein.

I see one problem. #1 and #4 cannot play against each other in the finals because they've already played against each other in the semis.

Re: Teams to Watch

The fight for the Number 1 seed in Archimedes is going to be huge in deciding who will represent that field on Einstein. Now the question is how political the coopertition bridge will get on that field.

My bad. I thought I got all the match-ups correct. I guess I should go back and look at the manual for tournament rules.

I think CalTran has the gist though--while the exact combination is impossible to determine, I think most of those teams will find themselves as dancing partners. (And we certainly hope to make the dance ourselves. )
