Re: Hardest Regional

And to throw another variable into the mixture ...

I've always figured that it's easier to win a regional if there are less teams there, therefore I'd suggest weighing the regional wins by how many teams were at that regional.

Definitely gonna third both IKE and Cory's response in saying the the Michigan Championships will be killer! And i wish good luck to both 1114 and whoever faces them (they will need it)

Re: Hardest Regional

I'm going to say the CT regional. A lot of really good teams, such as 126, 1124, 1100, 20, and 175, compete in this regional. Also, a lot of the founding teams of FIRST compete there. Roughly 60 teams compete each year, which is a lot of competition for the winner's banner.

Since that is the only regional I go to I might be biased, but after watching webcasts of other regionals and while their matches are good, they pale in comparison to the matches seen here in CT.

What did you think of the washington state regional? The driving wasn't as evasive as I'd strategized for.

Re: Hardest Regional

The michigan state. You had the best in michigan there, and if you saw it, you saw tough matches. Even the seeding matches were challenging. Most regionals will have a few bots that sit around and really don't do much, while the michigan was all the big, bad, and and ball happy bots.

Re: Hardest Regional

There were no real blowouts that this event, every seeding match was close. THere were never any grantee wins, any given group of robots could win a match or lose a match.

As for the Elimations, when you have teams like 27, 47, 494, 1701 not even making it, you have to think about how deep this regional was. You could have made up 12 alliances that all could win regionals all on thier own. The championship winning teams are all former world champs (65,67,217(x2)). I wouldn't be surpise that 3 of the teams in that tournment are playing on einstien on saturday. ( Since 1998, 1/3 of the world champions have come from michigan.)

This tournment presented the cream of the crop, and frankly some of the better robots in the country.

These forums are mostly dealing with FRC stuff. There's a nice FIRST Tech Challenge forum right here.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure the answer is Michigan, without question. Just from what I've heard, and all of the great robots that didn't even make eliminations.

Re: Hardest Regional

I agree that the Michigan State Championships may be the toughest competiton in FRC. But it is not the toughest regional. That would have to go to BAE. It's by far the toughest first week regional, and has the same, if not more competition than CT. But at BAE, teams haven't had 4+ weeks to revise...
