Since there is no video of Lake Superior on TBA yet here is one of the few videos I have of 4607.

Also 4539 from Lake Superior is a top 5 robot in the world.

I will be thoroughly disappointed if 1538 isn't in the top 3.

+1 to this. 254 may be 15-0-0 (in a very tough field, no doubt), but don't forget that 1538 is 14-0-0.

But why? Help make your point to why 1538 should be voted. Just saying you will be disappointed doesn't really help.

Does ISR#1 count for week 2? Since the week 1 poll kinda closed like a couple hours after ISR#1 ended, I figure I'd toss in a vote for 1574 here. I urge everyone to watch the elims for ISR#1 to get a feel for how truly far ahead 1574 was (is) at that event. MisCar is going to have one crazy year.

One team that may go unnoticed is team 6705 from Atlanta. This second-year team ranked number 1 and 2 at their two events so far and made it to the finals both times, winning the second event.

Seems like you would have won if your alliance had placed a cube in the vault first instead of spending 20 seconds trying to put one in an already unbalanced switch. 1 in the vault + activating force was more than the differential right?

Re: FRCTop25 Week 2 Poll Open. Closes 3/12 7:00pm Eastern

Um...ladies and gentlemen, my name is the humble alumni, and I'm the one behind the one who conquered the one who thought he was the one to beat the 1. Today at the SouthEastern NE District, my client didn't just beat, didn't just victimize; my client conquered the first seed alliance, which affords me, the humble alumni, the opportunity to proclaim myself the advocate for the brand new, reigning, defending, undisputed, back to back district winning TJ squared Team 88!

Team 88 accomplishments
Week 1 WPI District winner #3 Alliance Captain
Week 2 SE Mass #2 Alliance Captain OPR 206

Please consider them in your top 25 I think this team deserves to be recognized.

The justification for 1538 being on this list isn't their record, rather how much higher of a caliber they played the game in comparison to the rest of the SDR teams. I would argue, however, they seemed to make more mistakes near the end, with their auto scale not beginning to work when the scale is tipped against them + their lift barely being able to shoot on cubes when the scale is tipped against them. This is not to say, other teams, mine included, didn't also start to make more mistakes as the pressure built, but it was enough that their pristine record almost succumbed to an alliance with 2 working robots
This is just my two cents. I would fill out the form if I'd been watching other Week 2s but alas, I was busy scouting and ferrying batteries at a safe fast walking pace at SDR this week so \_(ツ)_/.
__________________

1. One match does not determine the overall power of a robot.

2. San Diego, while not seeming deep on a first glance, turned out to be a lot more competitive than we initially guessed. Even so, 1538 was able to come out of qualifications undefeated, without any sort of climber or ramp/buddy bar.

There are 3 reasons as to why I believe 1538 should be in the top 3.

1. Opponent Switch control. In some ways similar to 254, 1538 immediately aimed to load all of the cubes sitting on the opponent switch side into the switch. While others (including us) attempted to do as well, none of us were able to get consistently close to 1538. And with the speed at which they were able to do so, it was pretty much a death sentence for any alliance as they were able to still compete on the scale, whether it be 2v1 or 1v1 for scale control.

2. Auto. Week 2 featured a load of interesting and dominating autos. The fact that 1538 ran a 2 scale cube auton which nearly 100% of the time got 1 cube and most of the time 2 just goes to show the dominance that they had over San Diego. Comparing 1538 to the rest of Week 2, it is clear that they win out in this category.

3. The Scale. With a lightning fast elevator and a clean intake (imagine my suprise when Kiet says they are scraping it) , they were able to control the scale, even when opposing teams went 2v1 on them. As the scale was the major determining factor, this is were they can truly win out in the race for top 25.

Again, San Diego was an outstanding regional (my favorite so far) and the teams were amazing to work with. Congrats to 1538, 2659, and 597 on the regional win, well deserved!
