Well, from watching the webcasts, it was pretty solid on Curie till around... 11 or so today. But that's only from the webcast point of view.

Re: Championship 2007 - Atlanta - What Went Well or What You Liked

Although I was watching from the webcast it seems likes the refs were going about their job quickly and organized. They didn't hold up any games, well at least not that I watched.

Also, I do have to say that the speeches were better this year. I liked the Autodesk one talking about the DARPA one myself.

Re: Championship 2007 - Atlanta - What Went Well or What You Liked

hmm a lot of things happened to go wrong. for 3 of our 5 matches on friday, we had problems. the power distribution block loosened and one of the battery guaged wires fell out. then during another match we got stuck on a tube and were penalized? and then in the 3rd one, one of our black battery cables came loose... then we won the other two.

today... i just don't know... it seems like a good experience for a first timer at Nats... right? I think we could have done better, we definitely had the potential, but things just didn't work in our favor... but it was fun supporting beachbots in the curie/einstein finals!

Yeah... From what I remember from a couple years ago (last time my team was there was 05) there wasn't any room to really dance when the dance songs came on.

Maybe, if more room is made for the dancers, more dance music could be played =D I find that playing the dance music definatly brings out the spirit in some teams.

DUDE THE CHAMPS ROXORED!!!!!!

[/allcapsexcitement]

That was the most awesome thing I have ever experienced. Ever.

I got to meet a whole bunch of cool people, saw some all-out awesome matches, and ate crappy stadium food! It was sick.

You'll see me, if not my whole team, next year!

Re: Championship 2007 - Atlanta - What Went Well or What You Liked

I watched as much as I could on NASA TV and the WebCasts and was really entertained this year. The Einstein matches were really exciting!! But....

Maybe it's me, but I think if we played the Einstein matches again we'd likely have a different outcome and if played a 3rd time perhaps yet a different winner. Many of these alliances in the division finals and in Einstein were really, really good. None of them really stuck out like in year's past.

Also, 102 QF Matches with ~80 teams in each division? You play 7 matches and if you drop 2 for some odd reason, as previously mentioned, your rank is low enough that you may get missed by an AC. Someone already mentioned how some really good teams didn't get picked or weren't picked by a top seed, well scouting at Nats is really tough. The logistics of scouting are more difficult and often teams lack enough students who could make the trip to provide adequate scouts for that many teams (many of which are really good).

Anyhow, it seems to be getting really big; and closing ceremonies didn't conclude until 7 pm EST, that makes for a long day. Next year more regionals, more teams, could the Championships be bigger next year. I hope not. Don't get me wrong it's an experience all teams should get, but they may want to extend it to Sunday or start it earlier.

my $.02

Re: Championship 2007 - Atlanta - What Went Well or What You Liked

I finally met The Infamouse CD Forums Creator and now the new edition to IFI's family Brandon Martus. He happened to be administering the Archimedes Field. I also crossed JVN's path a few times on Newton. I was to Team Queue the Red Side on Newton but got held up on Tube Inflation all Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and part of Saturday =( due to the lack of Field Repair / Reset personnel. However I managed to recruit 2 lost Team Queuers who didn't meet up with our Supervisor and an Asst. Score Keeper who Didn't like where they ended so I ended up having some help late Friday all the way into Saturday on top of switching back and forth with my Queuing Assistant =). I think Newton ran extremely well with no Field Resets / Scoring Difficulties. One of the many complaints I have is that you couldn't hear the music on the field all that well which is the A/V crews fault. The next problem I have with Newton was that the Head Ref continiously hid the Blue Keepers from teams by putting them in an area where the alliance would not be able to immediatley find them after I continiously moved them to places where they would be out of the way.

Re: Championship 2007 - Atlanta - What Went Well or What You Liked

Reading the initial post and the thread title, it looks to me like this thread is intended for the positive aspects of the Championship.

That cockroach robot was awesome. One of the coolest things that I've seen in awhile.

Re: Championship 2007 - Atlanta - What Went Well or What You Liked

Overall, I think things went well, at least on Galileo. We kept on schedule +/- ~2 minutes all the way until the eliminations on Saturday afternoon. (Mostly it was everyone taking time-outs that threw us off schedule for the elims.) This means that generally everything was going well, from teams showing up on time, being ready to play, queuing working well, very few field problems, good calls by refs (which lead to very few team protests, which take time to resolve), etc.

At the end, I thought the way they "handed out" the game pieces went very poorly. After the final match, but before the end of the awards, they announced that anyone could take any of the inflated game pieces. The people who were on the dome floor already then immediately grabbed them, some people taking as many as 8. People in the stands rushed to the stairs, wanting to go grab some, but were prevented from doing so. Some people jumped over the railing onto the dome floor to get some. Some of the people on the floor picked up pieces and threw them into the stands. Many people were focused on trying to grab game pieces and were not paying attention to the remainder of the ceremony. I think if they were going to have a free-for-all "take any game pieces", they should have waited until the end of the awards, and THEN announced that anyone could come onto the field and take ONE game piece. (On the other hand, I personally benefited from them doing it the way they did, picking up a keeper for myself.)

Re: Championship 2007 - Atlanta - What Went Well or What You Liked

As I posted to correct someone in the negative thread: apparently the confetti balloons weren't there this year, obscuring vision in the upper levels. That's good.

I liked the speeches this year. IIRC, last year there was a congressman and a senator who gave pretty rah-rah pro-america speeches to the international crowd that was kind of wierd and felt like a USA political rally (and given that it was a midterm election year, that's probably how the politicians saw it too). The DARPA man (forget his name) and the YouTube founder (Chad Hurley) were really good this year. Sergei's speech last year was kind of bizarre (robot carrying the golden ball).

Re: Championship 2007 - Atlanta - What Went Well or What You Liked

Dean, Woody, Dave and others being so giving of their time, autographs, and picture opportunities made the week (year?) for at least 8 members of my team. Coming home with pictures and autographs is really meaningful to many students and very inspiring. My seniors already have plans for their pics with Dean and Woody to be on display at their graduation parties!

Team 48's photographer taking team professional pictures (thanks) was a logistics nightmare, I'm sure, and is very appreciated!

The DARPA (???) video was VERY cool and inspiring - maybe next year we can have some of these cars/robots and the robotic arm on display too!
