thoughts on the finals

While aimlessly surfing the net, a question popped in my head. In the finals is it better to be the first alliance to go and set the standard or is it better to know what you have to beat. And how will FIRST decide which alliance goes first?

So what are everyones thoughts?

Pat

I suppose that unless one alliance is easily the better
alliance, going second is a huge advantage.

There is going to be a lot of risk involved in getting
those monster scores many of use think are possible.
If you know what you have to beat you know just how
much risk to put into your score.

But then, FIRST has sort of equalized it because if you
DO go second and beat the first alliance's score, you
have to go first in the second round.

At that point, it will be all or nothing for the
alliance that went first in the first round.

As to which alliance goes first, I think that it
spelled out in the rules: the alliance with the higher
rank goes first in the first round.

As to the Semi-finals at the Nationals, I don't know
how they are going to work it and I don't have the
rules handy.

What would teams think of this proposal (assuming the
rules don't spell it out yet):

Re-rank all the alliances that make it through the
quarter finals (a.k.a. the group champions) based on
their highest score in the quarter finals. Then have
Seed #1 play Seed #4 and Seed #2 play Seed #3. Have
the higher ranked team go first in the semi-finals. In
the Finals, have the alliance that scored highest in
the Semi-Finals go first.

What do you think?

Joe J.

I think this is probably the best way to do it. I'm pretty sure they'll end up doing this.
