Predictions to win 2008 Frc Championship

I got to say 1114 robot is one of the best i have seen this year and it has been dominating, not like last years where they did dominate but not as much as this years.

I predict the winning alliance in atlanta would be 1114,2056 and team 70

any other predicitons

Let's see what the divisions look like first. It's entirely possible that those three aren't in the same division and the winner comes from a different division.

Re: Predictions to win 2008 Frc Championship

This might be a bold and slightly pretentious statement, but I predict that at least one team on the winning alliance will be from GLR. Thats just how impressive the robots there were.

i predict that at least one bot will be from Midwest. It was much more impressive, and it was week 1.
that robot will probably also be from Waterloo and GTR though

I'd put money on a team with a 1 in it's number winning.

Re: Predictions to win 2008 Frc Championship

If I was going solely on robot excellence and driver talent, I'd put 1114 on there. Unfortunately, they've got a target on them the size of Texas. Thus, BethNack predicts (yes, I know, totally legit...) that someone is gonna try to take them out. I hope I'm wrong, but... something in me tells me I'm not. I do hope that teams will demonstrate enough class and GP not to go Battlebots on the field...

That being said, the prediction I will make is this: the winning alliance will be composed of 3 teams fully capable of hurdling. It will contain a team well known for strategic excellence, and I believe at least one team from either GLR or MWR

Re: Predictions to win 2008 Frc Championship

This would be my hope for the winner of the 2008 FRC Championship.

-If the Divisions are set up Sepentine (based on The Blue Alliance setup): Archimedes will take it with 1114, 2056, 341

-If the Divisions are set up Normal (based on The Blue Alliance setup):
Curie will take it with 1114, 233, ????

I agree with you until here. I don't see the need for all three robots on an alliance to be able to hurdle. It does give you some strategic flexibility, but if I had to choose, I take an excellent defender / ball knocker over a mediocre hurdler every time. During the elimination, what you really need are good and experienced drivers with reliable robots.

I agree with Beth, the winning alliance will have at least one team noted for their strategic excellence. That team will also be the big kahuna on that alliance, and the lead hurdler. They will grab one of the next best hurdlers with thir first pick of the draft, and score a very strong defender and ball knocker with their third pick.
