Re: Curie 2010!

I am curious to hear 281's and 288's side of the story of how this went down.

And for those who need to see this match...

I know the trend is to talk about match 100, but I am back into the hotel now and want to say thanks to the above quote. This has turned into an awesome second year experience.

It's funny, the announcer today compared our looper to a lounge chair during one of the games (and called the wrong team name for our number but its stressful so I'll give him some slack. It's Prometheus. LOL) and after looking at our video this evening I thought it does look like a lounge chair when in looper mode. It gives me ideas for off season fund raisers. :-)

Anyway, we got to deploy the looper another couple of times today and its been real fun. Curie is shaping up to be an exciting division.

Now that the exclaiming of our team's elation and fun is over I will return to your regularly scheduled match 100 commentary and state that I pretty well walked out of match 100 as soon as I saw what 1114 was doing. I was looking forward to that match all day to see how the different bots played when against each other, and was disappointed to see teams playing the stupid coopertition aspect versus playing hard that match.

I can't blame 1114 because its obvious they are going for that 1st seed hard, but I do blame the GDC for coming up with a qualification system that rewards lawyering and shenanigans versus rewarding fun, competitive game play. It turned what should have been a super exciting match into a joke, and if nothing I hope this will be the last year of coopertition. You should qualify the same way you eliminate if you ask me.

Good luck to all in Curie.

Re: Curie 2010!

I watched the match with the lawnchair (webcast, of course), and have been wanting to ask you guys since then:

How was the beer?

Oh if only there was beer. :-) It would make the competition a lot more interesting for sure. But seeing as its about high schoolers we have to stick to fizzy and fruit drinks. LOL

I wish we would have thought of using a lawnchair, it would have made the construction a lot easier.

Re: Curie 2010!

Just an ignorant Mom here, but could someone explain to me about match 110? Why did 1511 not get the 2 bonus points for a successful hang? At least from the web cast it looked high enough and in plenty of time. There was plenty of speculation about the red hang, but no discussion about 1511, so we thought it was a given, yet when final score was announced, no bonus for blue. ??

Totally the best strategy, just made me sad to see the game go that way :/ Sorry for the poor choice of words.

Re: Curie 2010!

And 111's last match may have just earned them a #1 seed on Curie... 1114 has to gain at least 30 seeding points to top Wildstang. Wow, that's strange. That was my 111th post!

Re: Curie 2010!

Wow! 1114 pulls it off!

1 1114 10 301.00 104.00 22.00
2 111 10 286.00 120.00 4.00
3 2612 10 264.00 124.00 4.00

I'm not sure about the rest, but I think the top 3 seeds are pretty much set.

These are the rules as set out by the GDC so I think your portrayal of 'lawyering' and 'shenanigans' are inaccurate. This happened in 2003 on a large scale so the GDC knew what was coming.

1114 is just playing the game in an intelligent way so you are right not to blame them. These actions are not shenanigans or lawyering, they are just the rules as they were explained to EVERYONE. Characterizing their game play as shenanigans is a shot at them, you know that. If you want to criticize the GDC go ahead, but don't bring 1114 into it.

Re: Curie 2010!

No shock to 1114 and 469. I am a little shocked about 2041. However they seem like a good 3rd partner.

I'm just glad we finnaly know who the 3rd parter is on the Alliance we have been discussing about for so long. I hope everyone down there or back home has a good lunch, and Lets hope for some amazing elimination rounds in Curie.
