Re: Car Nack Predicts 18-1

Maybe FRC robots could get roles as the cops in a remake of Casablanca as they go out and round up the ursual suspects.

As far as the median emptier pan being no greater than six cubes, absolutely.

As far as ten being the maximum ever, it depends on how the meta plays out. While I won't be surprised if Car Nack's prediction holds, I think it's entirely possible that the switches will turn out to be indefensible. That is, both will be soundly neutralized in the first 30 seconds or so of teleop, especially in eliminations. This would redirect most of the activity of both alliances towards the scale, leading to an arms race. If that happens, alliances will emerge with two scalebots, or a scalebot and a gopher who between them can fill that first layer (maximum 11, more likely 10) and begin work on a second layer of cubes.
