It looks like the blue alliance did not try to harvest any of the tubes from your home zone, nor try to scatter them - was this common or not?

I saw this a few times, though not as extensively as I expected.

This was a scary moment. The other side had put on quite the pressure offensively, so both 1015 and 573 did not have ample time to get back and line up just right. Regardless, what a great match

Re: pic: Don't do this...

I remember seeing this when it happened. It looked like it happened in slow motion, they both charged up the ramp and both fell almost simultaniously. I said "WOW, that was crazy" because for something like that to happen is strange.

Re: pic: Don't do this...

Something I noticed this weekend is that 15 seconds often isn't enough for the average driver to climb up a narrow ramp. Most teams that tried to climb at the last second either fell off or only made it part-way up and got the 15. It seems that endzone defense was more effective than I thought... Did anyone else notice this? Or was it unique to the SoCal regional?

Re: pic: Don't do this...

I was looking at the picture and the comments and my brain froze and I cannot remember if we can push the opponents tubes out of our home zone or not. Could someone unfreeze my brain?

Re: pic: Don't do this...

Team 48's robot has sides on their ramps which allow robots to remain on ramp while going up. Once or twice during the playoffs, our alliance partners were able to make it up the ramp during the last 15 seconds of the match. This small feature on our ramp kept the robots on our ramp and not driving off.

Ahh.. that was a great moment - seeing both our robots fall off at the same time. We all rushed to go fix our robots up after that.

Yes you may, as long as you are not trying to herd them to some specific location. In fact sometimes you must do so - if your robot is supported by the ringer, any robot supported by you will not count for bonus points.

Re: pic: Don't do this...

What goes up must come down. Was it syncronized to music then it would be cool. I am sure alot of teams did not think to build practice ramps.

Re: pic: Don't do this...

We knew from last year how to build a ramp climbing robot I think that's the only time we tipped over.

More cool to watch was our robot teetering on a ramp like 3 times and finally stabilizing... Low center of gravity FTW
