Is that for real or is it an error. Go see it at the FIRST website, in the results section. How can you do that?

2 goals balanced, 4 robots in endzone, 1 stretcher, 3 big balls, 10 small balls under 30 seconds.

(40 + 10 + 30 + 10) * 4 * 3 * 1.1 + a rounding error

It was quite an amazing match! too bad no one got it on video :frowning:

oh wait, this isn’t the rumor mill :wink:

I think that was an error, I believe the highgest score right now is 625 scored in the great lakes regional yesterday…

if you take a look at the list:

  • those aren’t the teams that competed at that regional

  • the number of matches played by each is insanely random

  • teams that are listed as playing matches don’t have any match points

etc
etc
etc

i think it’s a tiny little fluke FIRST hasn’t had the opportunity to fix yet

And hey… if someone got a 1189… i would hope there would be quite a bit of hype in the FIRST community about it…

I’m still amazed by that 710 match… wow… now that’s team work…
