The best autonomous modes I thought were 980 and 190 hands down... although I never got to see 190 in person, only on video.
Otherwise, Galileo: 980 (capping) , 177 (balls) , and 93 (ball drop catching) were consistently impressive. 868 and 1305 each hung in at least 6 of the qualifying rounds.
Archimedes: 111 (capping and hanging), 33 (balls and hanging), 45 (balls and capping for the most part), 71 (the capping while hanging thing is still just plain awesome...), and I still love 1241.
Newton: HOT bot (67) will always be my favorite bot from watching the finals over there
so much fun to watch with all the different things they did.
Curie I didn't get to see
Hard to choose just a few BEST robots when there were so many good ones...
