Re: 2012 I.R.I. - Updated Event Information

I want to see the FiM and MAR champs play off. I vote not having the mentor match to give these 6 teams two more matches across lunch.

Re: 2012 I.R.I. - Updated Event Information

I don't want to see an Einstein replay unless all the teams involved wholeheartedly agree to it.

I would like to see the MAR champions face the FiM champions though as an exhibition.

At this point I think the one rule that IRI should change is [R52].

EDIT: And/or [R55]

Agreed. No good can come of this. It's not worth the collateral damagae it will cause.

-Nick
I would like to see nothing done that reduces the number of matches or competitive value for non district winners, i.e. the majority of teams in attendance. If the exhibition(s) are held during a time that would not otherwise be used for something beneficial to teams (including the alliance TRIPLE BALANCE PRACTICE that FIRST failed to provide for all CMP alliances), then I would have no problem with them.

While i do want to know what could have been, i don't think this is a good idea... While the factor that played into the finals more then most seemed to be the field issues, there are too many other factors to take into account to replay this. Any of the teams had the ability to win Einstein, and what happened happened. There is no reason to try and replay this, because it would do nothing but cause more problems.

I'm as upset as anyone on how much was sucked out of Einstein because of the problems, but that doesn't mean it needs to be redone.

Re: 2012 I.R.I. - Updated Event Information

Also agreed.

Everyone who saw 118 sit there saw what happened to our #1 alliance in Hartford in the 2nd & 3rd game of semis. After a while we simply had to accept the outcome. We could not possibly claim that we were "supposed to win" or that "we would have won if..." Some things just go that way. In Hartford as in Einstein, the winning alliance deserved their trophies.

Someone already said, in another thread, "Let I.R.I. be I.R.I."

Looking over my post it might seem like a grudge is lurking. Not So! Let me quickly add that I still think that 118 made one of the best and most beautiful machines I've ever seen and we all wish the Robonauts nothing but the best!
