[FRCTop25.com]- Post-MAR/MSC, Pre-Championship Show!

Hey everyone!
We had an awesome time watching MSC and the MAR Championships last weekend, and we know you did too! We don't know when divisions will come out, and if they come out by show time, we will definitely talk about them- look below for how you can help with that.


We have the show coming up on Wednesday AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!

Our show will consist of these parts:

1. A MAR/MSC recap of what happened this past weekend
  • If you have any information about the weekend, shoot us an email!
  • Any interesting things happen? Let us know about it!

2. A video highlight reel of cool plays/matches this year
  • For example, when the first triple balance happened in Alamo...
  • Any other cool plays/matches? Post in this thread, a video link is necessary!

3. If divisions come out...
  • We are looking for people to do a segment on the show to preview one of the divisions, send us an email!
  • You must have a webcam, microphone and headphones.
  • If you have further questions, or are interested, send us an email!

4. If you have any other ideas for the show, shoot us an email!
  • This week's show will be a lot shorter since tentatively all we're covering is MSC/MAR, so we're looking for ways to make the show normal length.

Our email is MikeandJustinITM@gmail.com! And you can follow us on twitter @MikeandJustin

Thanks for all your help and support! We'll see you live tomorrow night at http://www.livestream.com/MikeandJustinITM at 10:30PM EST!

Re: [FRCTop25.com]- Post-MAR/MSC, Pre-Championship Show!

Does this mean there will not be a new FRCTop25 list out post MAR/MSC? I was really impressed with a ton of teams this past weekend that I had not seen yet and wanted to vote!

We didn't want to do new rankings this week, because people tend to vote on teams that have just played, and forget about teams who may have played 3 weeks ago. We feel that last weeks rankings would be the most accurate for the season leading up to Championships.

Then again, this is the week that a lot of teams got to watch webcasts of teams they haven't seen yet this year.

Re: [FRCTop25.com]- Post-MAR/MSC, Pre-Championship Show!

I want divisions to come out soooooo badly... if they do come out you can talk about how the top 25 were all split up... apart from the usual which divisions are stacked, average OPRs for each division, how many regional wins per divison, how many chairman's winners, how many rookies... etc.

Re: [FRCTop25.com]- Post-MAR/MSC, Pre-Championship Show!

I'll return with a more thought out reply later, but for now, one thing that DEFINITELY has to be featured is 1551 shooting 1241's ball out of the air at Buckeye. Coolest thing I've seen this year.

Re: [FRCTop25.com]- Post-MAR/MSC, Pre-Championship Show!

Having a montage video of every single triple balance would be cool to see. It is really astounding to see the different types of robots completing the feat from stacking to HOT's giant arm.

Re: [FRCTop25.com]- Post-MAR/MSC, Pre-Championship Show!

I'd definitely like to see this match featured on the show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rPnc...ature=youtu.be

highest combined score, done without a single triple balance, and 64 points were scored by 1 team alone on the blue alliance.

Also, the Finals Match 1 in the GT West regional should be shown. That was possibly one of the best matches we may have seen this season.

Could we also include Karthik's history lesson? That was pretty darned inspirational.
But I agree with both videos shown. Especially the LSR Semis video because that just kept me on the edge of my seat watching it.

Re: [FRCTop25.com]- Post-MAR/MSC, Pre-Championship Show!

For videos to show, here are a few things I would recommend showing:

3322, 3601, and 862's autonomous in the 3rd finals match at Kettering - The first six ball passing autonomous
2415, 57, and 3997's autonomous in the semifinals at Lonestar - The last six ball passing autonomous
341's 5 ball autonomous
67's 5 ball autonomous (Didn't happen in official competition. A cool video to show anyway.)


Some of the more interesting/exciting triple balances:
148, 922, and 2936's at Alamo - The first triple balance
639, 3003, and 843's at FLR - One of (if not the) first triple balance without aid (no stinger, etc.)
125, 1635, and 522's at NYC - Triple with one robot lifted between the other two
1501, 1756, 4028's at Boilermaker - The stacking triple balance
Finals match at Waterford - The first double triple balance

Other cool moments:
2016, 357, and 708's infamous match from Hatboro-Horsham where 5 balls got stuck in the net
The epic and inspirational match at GTR-West that pitted 1114 against 2056, including Karthik's pre-match introductions
One of the most high profile matches in FRC History, finals at Midwest, 16 and 148, with 2022 vs 111 and 71, with 2151(Can't find much better footage).
The astounding upset in the finals at Queen City, where 45, 781 and 3940 overcame the powerhouse alliance of 48, 1038, and 3193

These are just a few things that come to mind. I'll post more if I come up with anything later.
I hope this helps!

I wish I had the equiptment necessary to do a division segment! Oh well

As far as I know, 67 never pulled this move off in official competition.

Also, you should probably give credit to full alliances for some of these maneuvers. Why is it 125's triple balance? If anything, 522's unique robot was the critical factor there. Why are 357 and 708 not given credit along with 2016 for the ball jam at Hatboro?

One of 6 of the 125/1635/522 triples viewed from our robot's POV.

I totally agree with Sean as well. In our case, it was a total ALLIANCE feat. 1635s incredibly strong drive system and excellent driving skill. 522s very unique feature that we (125) were able to recognize in relation to 1635s geometry and convince our alliance to execute. It took all 3 of our teams on that alliance to accomplish that feat.

That is correct. We have done 4 a handful of times, but never 5 in an actual FRC match.
