Re: Chezy Champs 2018

Chezy Champs is one classy event.

Volunteers, game announcers, and RSN coverage were off the charts. Heart-stopping, epic matches during quals and elims kept everyone on the edge of their seats. The video feed quality and layout were glorious and received much praise from our crew watching from home. The 254 FMS graphic overlays are elegant and well thought out. It’s held at a beautiful facility with perfect weather. Before the outcome, several seniors told me it was their favorite event, ever. We definitely had a great time, hope to make it back next year.

After several nail-biters in the quarters and semis, against some stacked alliances, we felt very thankful to even make it to the finals. I'm going to remember: F1 - red alliance deliverers an insane 5 cube auto. F2 – without that pesky 5 cube things are so much nicer. F3 - blue alliance chin-up, cluster auton.

The outcome of F3 was difficult and left us with a heavy heart. The referees made their best judgment using a flawed ruleset. I hope this leads to discussion and a positive change to the rules to handle these difficult situations better. Personally, this being an offseason event where we attend solely for the spirit of competition, I would have preferred a replay. Might have needed some duct tape and zip ties to get back to the field but nobody wants to go home with an asterisk by a win - would much rather go down with our guns blazing.

So much respect to the 1678, 254, 649, 2557 alliance… we hope to be able to play with you all in the future.

Many thanks to our alliance partners 1323, 2659, and 1538. Team 2659 was amazing every match, Madtown was beyond awesome - this robot is dope.

A huge thanks to team 254 for opening their doors and hosting this event!

Re: Chezy Champs 2018

One last thought before I forget -

Thanks to the Cheesy Arena dev team for implementing an A-Stop feature. We were able to use it flawlessly in a match to prevent a possible collision while still being able to play in teleop. Definitely a great feature that should help teams operate more safely in auton.
We definitely appreciate the attention to all of the details in Cheesy Arena from the drive team standpoint(A-Stop) to the production side(gorgeous field, rankings, and queue graphics). Thanks to Pat and team for all of the upgrades year to year.

Re: Chezy Champs 2018

Is anyone working on parsing the qual. match videos and posting to TBA? No hurry obviously, but some of our students were wondering. They want to see what went well - and what did not.

We didn't compete as strongly as we wanted to, but our all new drive team learned a bunch last weekend. Thanks to 254 for being such great hosts, and spending way more time than we ever expected showing us their robot and facilities. A very enjoyable event.

Here's hoping it gets looked at closely by those in the know. This would be a great feature to implement during the official season.

Re: Chezy Champs 2018

Chezy Champs was an amazing event. This was 4388's first time and it was an awesome experience. So thank you everyone for welcoming us all the way from Colorado!
I know it's a little late, but here is a recap video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icXXYUdMMCY

Again thanks everyone, it was so fun and it had the perfect vibe. Thanks
