I agree with this crazy blonde.
I think this is a great change and was well overdue.
I appreciate that FIRST made this move.
Divisions will feel more like a large regional and begin to hold their own meaning.

Seems like a good idea, gives teams a chance to get their pick lists in order. That might make for an emotional roller coaster of just winning an award and moving right into waiting to see if you get selected but teams can handle that.

This does mean that for most teams their chance of winning anything would be over by noon on Saturday but again at championship this isn't much of a problem.

Re: [FRC Blog] More ‘Something New’ at the FIRST Championship

Definitely in favor of this idea. Looking forward to seeing what gets put into the timeout slots - I hope at least one of them is the Chairman's video.

I agree on every point

Holding an awards ceremony for every division really does turn it into more of a regional (or dare I say a super-regional) kind of format. There's no downside to giving out more awards and recognition to teams. I've always wondered about about machine features and the teams who win awards during worlds but have never been able to make a connection because the award winners are likely to be outside of my division.

Awesome move!

Re: [FRC Blog] More ‘Something New’ at the FIRST Championship

Good move FIRST!!! With 400+ teams attending it is great to see more teams being recognized for their work!

Yes it means you might have to stick around on your division longer and possibly lose out on seats but each team needs to make their own decisions.

Re: [FRC Blog] More ‘Something New’ at the FIRST Championship

First,
more robots get to make eliminations at CMPS.
Next,
more division awards such as EI.

That is definitely moving in the right direction!

My wish for next year,
Crown Division CA. Then of the 4 that win, choose the overall winner on Einstein for the CCA!
In the past, they had CCA runner ups. This would be a great way to bring back the runner ups again.

I'd rather they name 3-4 finalists, regardless of division assignment with one of them being the CCA winner, at the start of the Einstein ceremony and announce the winning team at the end. They want the Chairman's winners down there to watch with Dean and Woodie, but the most important award still gets to be announced at the end.

Re: [FRC Blog] More ‘Something New’ at the FIRST Championship

FWIW, there were "Chairman's finalists" back in the late 90s / early 2000s - nice, but also frustrating for the teams involved. Take the good with the bad.
