Re: Best robots at Nationals

Hanging in Auton is one hell of a feat, i wish i would have seen it, sadly i saw very few matches.
I saw wildstang do some pretty cool stuff like grab the 2x ball play a little defense force them selves up onto the platform drop a 2xball in from the platfrom to a near full goal and 3 seconds later they were hanging my jaw just dropped i was truley amazed.

Re: Best robots at Nationals

Team 45's ball collector had to be one of the best at the championship, and their 2x ball gripper is nearly impossible to "steal" balls from if they are centered in the gripper. They, and their partners came very close to winning Archimedes, and if they had, they would have been the favorites for winning the whole thing.

Re: Best robots at Nationals

NEWTON-
After lookin at all the robots in the newton division, i would have to say that you cant just pick one great bot. ireally loved 67- outstanding is the only way to describe them, 1126- they were great at hanging constinently, 340- the rope amd pully system they to get on the bar was awesome, 303- the perfect none hanging bot- they capped so easily and gathered balls like it was nothing. i hope to see 67,1126, and 340 at cleveland again next year and maybe work with you guys. 303 good luck at ur regionals. good luck to all teams and have a relaxing off season.

Re: Best robots at Nationals

Though I may be a bit partial, I believe that 45 had the best offensive robot at Nationals. Our first three and fifth qualification match scores were 180, 190, 200, and 210, respectively. This was only with the help of a hanger. Also, we scored the highest score ever, 230, during the third semifinal round.

The best defensive robot out there was definitely 494, they made some very smart moves during elims and this led to their winning the event. Watch final match 3 on Archimedes, the best defensive bot vs. the best offensive bot. A great match, after which the final score was determined by the referees not counting the 2x because it was touching our claw. Too bad for us, great for 494. Great job guys. Your bot has tons of speed and your driver is great at manuvering it from 40+feet away.

It's not the best video, but you can check out SOAP's archive of match 114 here. We should have some better video on the web soon.

Re: Best robots at Nationals

When I saw 190 hang during autonomous during qualifying, my mouth dropped. Their programmers should get an award, because that was just awesome. I also think 93's robot was awesome, and I would have loved to have been able to play with them but unfortunately never got the chance.

Re: Best robots at Nationals

190 definitely had one of the best robots there....i was really suprised they werent picked before we got to them...same thing with swamp thing...they had one of the best 2x ball grabbers in curie...but 190 was great to have because it was always an automatic 50 points....and they could also block the 2x ball from getting into the opponents goal....another robot i liked ever since i saw it was 71 the Beast....i watched videos from midwest regional and fell in love with that robot....hanging while capping....when i was watching them i told myself they are gonna do amazing at nats....and they did....congratulations team hammond

Re: Best robots at Nationals

I was amazed at the smoothness of operation and the elegance of team 67's design. How they hooked, released, and hung was a thing of beauty.

Re: Best robots at Nationals

Best hanger? I would say 47 Chief Delphi.

Some robots look like clunky machines when they are accomplishing a game objective. When the Chief hung it was a thing of beauty. Effective and elegant their robot was up in the air in seconds.

EDIT: It just occured to me how similar my post looks to Andy B's. It was purely accidental

Nothing at all against 47, cause i loved their robot, but i thought there were much better hangers. For example team number 190...hanging in auto, i believe they hung every match, and they could do other things while hanging, i feel they were the best hanger. Like I said nothing against CD, just i feel 190 was definetly better. I'd also like to give a shoutout to 1218, cause those guys stepped it up. In chesapeake they could hardly get up a step and at nationals finishing FIRST (lol) in their division and making it to the NATIONAL FINALS is an amazing feat...GOOD JOB GUYS!!!

Re: Best robots at Nationals

The Gila Monster Team (I can't remember the number) had an impressive robot in Gallileo. It would hang and then use a motor and wheels to move aroud on the bar, blocking others from hanging. While they might not have been the best they do deserve at least a comment.

Re: Best robots at Nationals

330 had a nice robot it got on the bottom platform in autonomus. They kept us from hanging while they were on the bar. it seems they can move on the bar. even though i still havent figured out how they do that.
