Who had the most awesome robot at the nationals

OK my question to everyone who attended the nats was who do you think had the most awesome robot there. My nominees would be SPAM, 60 (the Kingman bot) and Beatty Hammond. If I had to choose one I would choose just one I would choose SPAM.

Yea 122! How about we all come back next year, and if the same thing happens to both of us again, we will have a renegade competition in the parking lot. But really, you guys had an amazing robot.

224 also rocked.

And 007 too. (that was quite shameless)

I was surprised at the level of the ball bots at nats. 173 and 175 scared me they could pick up so many balls. I watched buzz pick up like 25 balls and dump them and put a goal into scoring position in 30 seconds. Obviously team 60 was awsome, by far the most powerful double goal grab this year, maybe the most powerful wheel propelled robot ever. Which brings me to beatty, beatty makes me cry, not only because they beat us but because they came up with a design so good that they deserved to win. not a lot of people saw them but the Cheesy Poofs put together yet another awsome bot this year. i'm sure there's more but i can't think of any more right now.

its a dog fight between team 60, the beast, SPAM bot and Baxter, and Team 233 Space Coast

i think BBS was the best ball collection machine...it was a beautiful machine....Team 60 was an absolute masterpiece and great t watch....The beast...the walking strength of this robot made it unbeatavle....and who can forget spacecoast and there robots wonderful coding that ran their motors at the highest efficiency at all times...

I can't believe 122 didn't get picked. That was a massive scouting oversight.

Best goal bot (just goal grabbing ability): 60
Best ball bot (just ball grabbing ability): 175

But I wouldn't be a good judge because I didn't see too many other matches besides ours and the ones right before ours.

I'm probably just biased, but I honestly believe that we could've assembled a divisional champ alliance from all the teams that didn't get picked. Us (team 21), 122, and one of many other oversights (234, 34 to name a few) could've competed with the winners. They should allow a wildcard alliance.

to Bad we didn't go to the national But team 61 robot did in fact pull team 180 around the field. So I would think for power we are up there. We will see when we go to PA May 11.

Well, I have to say 308 I didn't see any other team that could compleatly pick the goals off the ground.

But as for not my old team, I'd have to say 111. They always scared me playing against them, and they managed to do it again this year.

308 Looked Impressive

I'd actually have to agree that 308 had one of the most awosome robots I've seen. They looked pretty good at Regionals, but i think they had a few technical problems. I knew with a few minor fixes they could have one of the most amazing bots of the season. Sure enough, they looked awosome at nationals. Not only were they one of the few teams to lift up two goals, from what I saw they were EASILY one of the fastest teams to the goals, and lifted them so quickly that opponents had little chance to get in the way. I didn't catch all of the finals matches, I heard they had to pull themselves due to difficulties, but I'd say that there was a VERY strong chance things would have gone a little differently with 308 still in there. It seems like every year this team comes out with an great machine. Congrats on a great year!

Hmmmmmmmm.... Guess I missed that match. I saw them all, we got 'em all on video (so does SOAP108) and the only thing I recall was you pulling the goal sideways with your tether a little until we dragged you across the field.

You had a good robot, but lets be clear - you did NOT in fact pull us around the field.
