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

I would be very interested if someone could figure out which of these teams made the balance happen with a bridge assister and which were just a wide bot that was taken along for the ride. The number of teams that can do that will really be interesting when alliance selections at championships rolls around.

It isn't always that simple. There are often multiple responsibilities such as lowering the bridge, clearing balls from under the bridge, stabilizing the bridge and, just in case, salvaging a balance if one robot runs off the end of the bridge. Depending on the strategy, these responsibilities can be spread out between the three bots (as they often are), or they can all be handled by one robot (which I would imagine would be uncommon).

Is that better? (The FIRST team listing site seems to be down, so I cannot actually prove that 2056 and 1219 are attending Worlds, just that they're qualified.)

I saw that! Great job! We practiced successfully three times in DC but couldn't pull it off in a match, unfortunately. Good thing we managed it at FLR!

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

4272, 1732 and 292 pulled it off at Boilermaker. Not sure about 4272 and 292, but 1732 will be at the championship and we're excited to try out the triple balance again.

Now at 84 teams!

Congrats to:

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

A little more data:

In MI: 10 districts * 8 alliances * 3 teams = 240 teams with a possible triple. 21 in MI have done it. That's almost 9%.
*actually, many of those '240 teams' are repeated, leaving a much smaller number to divide by. Combining just Waterford, Northville and Troy results in 7 of 24 alliances pulling off a triple. That's 29% of the alliances at those events!!!

Outside MI: 51 regionals * 8 alliances * 3 teams = 1224 teams. At least 63 have done it. That's just over 5%.
*this is likely also skewed a little by the repeated teams.

Of the top 10 teams qualified for MSC, 7 have been part of a Triple Balance.
Of those 7, only 4 have done it at more than one event.
Of those 4, only 2 have done it at more than two events.

Well, Jason, you have to account for double counting. We don't even have 240 teams in Michigan!

Ok, you're right, i went in the wrong direction, but at least i noticed it and fixed it a whopping 2 min before you corrected me!!!

How about this:
In MI: Of 190 teams, 21 have done it so far => 11%
Outside MI: Of 2150(?) teams, at least 63 => 3%
