I would like it noted, discussion regarding the control system issues will be minimal until more information is released or we know more.

Good decision, we could spend hours throwing flames at each other over this issue (though through GP, we shouldn't, but sometimes emotions get the best of us).

I think one of the biggest things I'd like to see discusses are the many strategies that won each division. Which strategies were the best and which ones stood out.

My team's interested in hearing a discussion on the benefits and the negative effects we all saw from co-op points. (for example, our scouting team saw a undefeated team's ranking at the end of Friday in the 20's)

<schreiaj> Oh?
Guest 12 has left the chat
Guest 15 is logged into the chat
<Kristian25> Yeah, the reasoning was the they really didn't want to constrain teams/have them lawyer the rules too much
<Kristian25> or something along those lines, but the audience did let him know that they would've preferred some sort of glossary
<Kristian25> For reference, I think it's in one of the Rebound Rumble videos (3-6) http://www.youtube.com/user/FRCTeamsGlobal, IIRC

<chrisisme> On 1714 we read the manual out loud, with the whole team, on Kickoff
<chrisisme> best way to ensure everyone reads it
<schreiaj> Students realize you can't carry through on them
<aspiece> They read the manual. I should clarify.
<aspiece> We read the updates as a group. I am thinking Q and A

<Guest 11> watch 1983's bridge defense in Spokane Regional
Guest 21 is logged into the chat
<aspiece> Fender defense was deadly on fender shooters. We got to do it once and we shut down both 1322 and 548
<wing1002> I don't think there was a difference in difficulty on either shots. it depended on how it was executed by the team
<wing1002> 2056 was pretty invulnerable to fender D
Guest 2 has left the chat
<apalrd> I kinda like the fender...
<wing1002> 842
<Kristian25> 1065
<schreiaj> Moose turned into a key shooter at Boca elims
<wing1002> There was no backboard though, that was what made it hard
<wing1002> you had to land your shots in for a swoosh
<aspiece> Once our shooter was working correctly, the key was easy to line up without code
<wing1002> audio just died on me....
wing1002 has left the chat
wing1002 is logged into the chat
<wing1002> That shot between the lane and the fender is hard because of no backboard
Guest 22 is logged into the chat
<schreiaj> yup
Guest 23 is logged into the chat
<wing1002> I do think the bots that could shoot from both were the best
<wing1002> Co-op bridge really screwed with the rankings
<aspiece> I liked the second level of strategy
<aspiece> IT created some interesting competitiveness strategy between the opposing teams
<aspiece> I will admit to some politicing
<wing1002> argh, audio died on me again
<avanboekel> hit the trouble hearing thing in the bottom right
<wing1002> cool
<jbarry987> Getting coop last match of qualifications instead of going for likely win cost us a 49-0 season

<matt_FRCDesigns> Hello Everyone!
<avanboekel> hi!
<wing1002> I mean, there's those teams like 1114 and 1717 that sit there and help any possible team that needs help at competition
Guest 25 is logged into the chat
<aspiece> inconsistent on ball jam rules
<wing1002> I saw that it was inconsistent on the Hybrid rulings for buzzer beaters
<Kristian25> I think that as the season went on, they got better at dealing with ball jams, at least in hybrid
<aspiece> One match of our they simple gave us the points and didn't restart a match.
Guest 25 has left the chat
<aspiece> They were consistent at CMP

Guest 28 is logged into the chat
<wing1002> I found that in Week 7 events, they were counting buzzer beaters in Hybrid, but in Newton, they weren't
<Kristian25> The ruling at CMP on that was that the field supposedly had a slight delay built in to account for the extra hybrid points after the buzzer
<Kristian25> so they weren't going to manually adjust it
Guest 28 has left the chat
Guest 29 is logged into the chat
<thefro526> IIRC, it was enough to count a ball in the hoop at the end of hybrid, but not a ball in the air
<Kristian25> and that was consistent across the event. I know at some other events earlier in the season, the field crews were compensating for the extra 3 pts
<jbarry987> Refs job is to supervise proper placement of elements on fields
<Kristian25> Much better than the 06 real time scoring, and at least the goals were such that the pokey pokey stick guy couldn't knock the balls out of the goal
<aspiece> The real time scoring was key for many of our wins
<Kristian25> They could, but it was sooo much better than 2006's
Guest 17 has left the chat
alecmataloni111 has left the chat
<aspiece> That is why you have a coach
<Kristian25> A++ on the scoring
<aspiece> We may have made some teams a little mad because we waited to shoot rather than go to the bridge at :45
Guest 30 is logged into the chat
<aspiece> We still would get the bridge but win in points
rsisk101 has hung up
Guest 29 has left the chat
<aspiece> It was great to pick the 88th seed to our alliance for Newton and make the finals with them
<schreiaj> Couldn't pick the 9th seed 
<matt_FRCDesigns> 1-2004 2-2006 3-2012 4-2008
<aspiece> Political answer: My scouters make these decisions
<jbarry987> I agree with Sean
<programLuke2169> 8 beat 1 on galileo
<schreiaj> http://d.pr/i/1xO4 The impact hybrid had
<jbarry987> Not unexpected for us
<jbarry987> Suuup Sean!
<matt_FRCDesigns> IRI Invitation List it out!!! http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=106486

<schreiaj> can you say freaking out me trying to find some of my students?
<aspiece> Oh boy
<aspiece> It was crazy
<schreiaj> (I was separate from the team but wanted to make sure that they were all somewhere inside)
<aspiece> Teams at the top couldn't move floors
<aspiece> were forced to stay in the stands
<schreiaj> They evacuated the volunteer lounge too
<jbarry987> Storm perfect metaphore for field events
<aspiece> I agree

<avanboekel> @aspiece there are good teams outside of districts that didn't make it as well. look at 71...
<chrisisme> 2168, 829, 177
<aspiece> Oh I am aware. We speaking about districts so thats why I said them
<aspiece> 1625
Guest 37 is logged into the chat
<Kristian25> Our regionals last year were bag and tag, so it wasn't that new to us
<schreiaj> ah ok
Guest 38 is logged into the chat
<jbarry987> Dang...I agree with Sean again! Let's stop fooling around and just let the teams work as much or as little as they want.
