That event was one of the most exciting happenings in Rebound Rumble. I'd even say it's up there with the first triple balance in Alamo with 148.

This was favorite moment from IRI. The first match 148 had some amazing defense and this was really a turning point when you were able to deny them access to your side of te field. Great job!

Re: Team 4334 VS 148 @IRI (Video)

It's funny, because back in 2008, 148's robot was a little robot that could and made a huge splash at Championship.

I have a feeling that Smallbots are going to be a rising trend in FIRST, so long as the game affords small-sized robots.

This was one of my favourite moments of IRI, second only to 118 scoring 3 points while hanging off of a triple balance for the world high score.

WAIT WHAT!?!


I also loved seeing this and searched for it in the streamed videos after I saw this. I keep saying how well this robot was made, and how well it agrees with what we are always told, regarding working with you experience and resources, and this little thing shows how well it was done.

regarding more smaller robots in FRC in the years coming, i expect it to happen, after seeing the Vex/FTC bot at the competition I was wondering why we made our robot so big. I turned back to 111 and 907 and was like We are so stupid for making our robots soooo big this year!".

Re: Team 4334 VS 148 @IRI (Video)

I'll be oddball here and give props to 148s driver for realizing they were stuck on 4334 and backing up to get off of them, had they been pushing back 148 would have surely flipped when coming off the other side of the bridge. 4334 was also aware enough to take advantage of the situation.

For all you physics people frictional force = normal force x CoF
One robot half on another.....you do the math on who's going where.

I enjoy facts and accurate recollections bring recorded.

That robot was a 99% High School Competition legal VEX robot, the only illegal thing was the bumpers which were put on just for kicks.

Re: Team 4334 VS 148 @IRI (Video)

I'll catch some flak for this, but I see this video as more marketing than an actual basis of expectation for 4334 moving forward. If the team had tried a shooting mechanism this year then that defense may have left them with a different post-match situation. The video further adds to 4334's expectations of powerhouse-endorsed greatness since the play itself was but a glimpse of a pattern of opportunistic success. Yet left to their own devices I'm not so sure the team will have the same success in 2013.

It was fun to watch nonetheless

If you watch their other videos your impression will change.

They explain their choice of making such a robot was based on knowing they were unlikely to be a true frontrunner if they attempted scoring (moreso middle pack, a respectable feat for a rookie anyway) and would rather make the robot that would be picked by the best. The videos show the team has a lot of resources and reasoned, intelligent members.

One could (but shouldn't) look at their 2012 machine and say it's unimpressive and doesn't indicate future success, but the thought process and team revealed in their videos and public statements are the type of group that will be competitive in the future.

Re: Team 4334 VS 148 @IRI (Video)

I have to admit I didn't give that robot enough credit when I first saw it. That was a pretty incredible design and implementation for a first year team. To have the foresight to choose the strategy they did was really impressive. The way their ball manipulator does everything (scoring, picking up balls, lowering the bridge) is really cool.

Great job!

Yeah, and if 2791 built a swerve this year we probably wouldn't have moved. What's your point?

4334 built a fabulous robot within their means that performed objectively better than many teams with shooting mechanisms. Their ability to honestly evaluate their capabilities and to choose a robot type that would get them success on the field (without a shooter) is exactly why they were so successful this year. Yes, if they built a shooter they would have been worse - but they didn't!

Seriously, we should have built that robot this year, and I bet a lot of FIRST is saying the same thing. Or at least in my opinion they should be.

There is no doubt a lot of teams should have built that robot this year. As the #1 seed at BM and the #2 seed at QC we would have killed to have a robot like that to pick.

More teams should realistically evaluate their capabilities and resourses as well as 4334 did this year.
