Re: How many teams have sucessfully done a triple balance?

I guess I can start.
Team 469 has been part of 9 triple balances and was in the only double-triple thus far. Obviously we can't take all the credit, it was a collaborative effort of our alliance partners (Like 2851, 1023, and 3175) and also because of awesome balance assist mechanisms (like 67's utility arm, or our own peg leg).

I know there have been a bunch though, they're getting more and more common.

3456 was involved in the only triple balance of the Utah Regional along with 4175 and 3230. We had no assisting mechanisms, albeit it was on done on the practice field...

862 1718 and 3322 completed a triple balance in Quarterfinal 1-2 at the Michigan State Championship. Unfortunately we lost that match 97-90..

Re: How many teams have sucessfully done a triple balance?

Add 341, 25, and 1640 to the list! We triple balanced all 5 times we got on the bridge. The sixth time there was heavy defense that prevented us from being able to balance (but which cost our opponent 8 fouls).

Re: How many teams have sucessfully done a triple balance?

You can also add 33 and 2137 to the list. 3089 is aready on it. We were successful every time we attempted; unfortunately, it is very difficult to tripple with tipped or dead robots. I certain we will perform more tripples at worlds.

Yes, It was quite unfortunate what happened to us in matches 1 and 3 in the semifinals at MSC. We made the triple balance look so easy when we had the opportunity.

You can also add 830 (with 67 and 469) and 2054 (with 245 and 548) to the list. It was very impressive to see 2 long bots hanging off the bridge. I'm sure someone must have got a good photo.

You can probably count on Dan Ernst having gotten a dozen good photos!

There should be a "Ghost of the Loch Ness Monster" or something similar for being part of a double triple.

Have there been any double triples outside of Michigan?

You don't know how worried 2054 was that they tipped you over. We made sure as an alliance that it wouldn't happen in the next 2. Very sorry that happened to you in match 1 and 33 died in match 3. As the winning alliance told us after the last match, we would rather compete against you at your best.

Also with regards to the 2 long bot triple balance... I think we win the award for the ugliest triple balance this season!

Team 4028 was in two successful triple balances at BMR along with 1501 and 1756. Our triple was also the first successful stack maneuver where our robot was on top of 1501 and balanced with 1756.

Here's a picture of our triple stack:

Re: How many teams have sucessfully done a triple balance?

The teams I've seen are: 67, 469, 2851, 573, 3098, 3601, 1023, 3175, and perhaps 314, 201, and 2611 but I can't be sure.

On a related note, once we figure out who the teams who have triple balanced are, I wonder if the HOT Team will be willing to give out Loch Ness Monster stickers to all of them: http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...4&postcount=14

Or maybe you'll just have to triple balance with them to get the stickers. Either way, it looks like there will be stickers on a whole lot of robots by the end of the season!
