Ok, here goes

It was the most contreversial match because:

Clark (696) was all the way on the ramp, We (294) would have been on the ramp, but the ramp was moved out of place and was touching our robot. 60 was clearly on because the clips were on the ramp.


From this, several questions arise:

In the rules it says breaking the ramp is illegal and results in disqualification. The only parts that could have broken the ramp was our arm, which snapped, but we kept it up, or 60's ramp clips, which could be in itself illegal because the rules also state that you cannot grap onto the ramp for position.


So from this reasoning:

The alliance with 60 might have been DQ'd for moving the grating, making the losing alliance the winners.


I am not bitter :-) In fact, I felt that the other alliance had a well played win :-) Just my thoughts.

I was at LA and while I thought this was a really exciting match, I don't think it was the most controversial. The reason why it might be dubbed this though was because it was the last final match and the blue alliance had one robot up there (60) and the red alliance had two up there (294 & 696). This would have been enough for red to win because they would have gotten 50 poitns and blue would have gotten nothing since 60's robot was still clinched down to the mesh part of the ramp. However the mesh of the ramp got moved slightly up from wear and tear and there was a little part of the ramp touching one of the red robot's wheels. Since both of the red robots were touching each other and one was touching the ramp, neither were counted so it just came down to boxes in the end. The reason why I say it isn't that controversial is because even if red got 50 points they still needed more to surpass blue's first match win. It was still a great match nonetheless and kept us all in suspense as they tallied it all up.

edit: Ah, from Daniel's response posted at the same time as I was writing mine I can see why it would be controversial. Great attitude though, guess that's how you guys won the sportsmanship award.

I really don’t think this was the most controversial match either.

Even if both our alliances robots were on the ramp, it wouldn’t have secured our total QP win because team 60 was not on the ramp, thus giving us minimal points for the 2x loser score bonus points.

The first match however was a lot closer, the 696 robot was not on the ramp, literally <1mm from being on the ramp. The first match score was 51 to 57 with the one robot being 1mm off the ramp.

I have to say that team 60 is extremely fast and definitely deserved this win. As always team 60 had a great,efficient, winning design.

Thanks to teams 696 and 294 for a great alliance!

Nope, rules no longer say that, in an update(i don't remember which), that rule was changed to say that you can interact with the mesh but are only allowed to protrude 1/8 inch below it.

Same exact thing happened for us. Our partner was on the ramp by that much too and had they not been, the match woulda been ours <sigh> and it could have been us against your alliance. Oh well, it was still a great comp!!!

in one match, we somehow managed to snag that 1 inch metal strip on the bottom of the ramps, broke it, and pulled a good 2 feet of it up. they took time out to repair the field after that, but no penalties or dq's were given to us

were they actually grabbing (meaning encircling or going through the ramp), or were they just bracing themselves on top of it?

60 was simply placing their arms feet inside the first of the 2 wires on the grating. It only protruded enough to grab the the upper horizontal wire and did not protrude past the bottom one.

Nothing was against the rules, and the ruling was fair.

Please leave it at that. They deserved the win.

Thanks you guys for a great competition.
