Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

I would have to say team 610. After watching them in GTR I saw they were a force to be reckoned with.

I agree with this statement. they made the finals at two different regionals. pushing one of them to three matches in a very exciting Finals round at MSR

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

I would definitely say that 330, 968, 610, 910, and 103 are some good robots that will not be attending.

Although I am excited that team 40 made it off of the wait list and attending. They have a very good robot and a scary autonomous.

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

Ditto on 330 and 3006.

Most know about 330 already - solid hybrid robot, solid drive team, pretty good human player. This'll be their first time watching at home in quite a while, and it's a shame.

3006 has a solid Z- (or 7)-bot. Save for their team number, you couldn't even tell that they were a rookie team. I'm willing to bet that they'll make it to Atlanta next year.

1388 and 968 are also great teams that barely missed the 'ship... what a pity :/

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

Two teams that i closely watched were teams 1126 and 610.
1126 - An amazing robot and were on Einstein a couple of years ago, 1126 would have been a huge force in Atlanta
610 - Unfortunately missed Rochester eliminations and would have played a huge factor in elims. 610 has a powerful scoring machine coupled w/ a really good driver.
Other teams that didn't make it this year did do amazing and deserved to go to Atlanta:
103
694
968
69
1939
670
1823
3006
2200

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

Along with the teams mentioned already I'd add 1251 to that list. They really seemed to be a force in Florida as usual....

I don't think this does them justice. They're the best defensive team I've seen all year, and they have the ability to score with some of the best robots out there. They would have been a force in Atlanta.

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

I didn't watch much of any of the webcasts, but there were a handful of teams between the BAE Granite State Regional, Boston Regional, and Connecticut Regional that I will miss watching in Atlanta.

694, StuyPulse, was an incredible offensive force in CT, and would definitely go far at the Championship event. It's a shame we won't be seeing them there!

1276, Kaizen Blitz, was surely in the top few scorers at BAE. They seemed to be overlooked this year, but they had an amazing machine.

1100, The T-Hawks, were outstanding at both Boston and CT. You can't complain about seeding 1st at one and 2nd in the other...and making it to the finals in both! Another great design from our friends from MA.

58, Riot Crew, was also a top-bot at BAE. I remember a few times their hopper getting jammed, but when they were working correctly, they could carry just about any alliance. Very unique and effective design.

Hopefully you guys will all make it to some off-season events! If it means anything, you caught my attention!

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

Echoing the statements above, 1280 can score with the best up there. I also agree on the 694 point, although I only saw them in the fateful CT eliminations, when they worked, they were deadly.

Agreed on 2041. They have a fabulous robot this year, and play really smart. We had the pleasure of playing with them at Midwest in 2008, and the honour playing against them at Midwest in 2009. The good news is, they will be in attendance with their FTC robot.
