2016 Einstein

Einstein is upon us!

Newton Champs: 7.) 217 3476 4678 188
Galileo Champs: 1.) 195 987 1197 1065
Archimedes Champs: 1.) 1501 1986 5050 4828
Curie Champs: 8.) 694 3339 379 1511
Carver Champs: 2.) 330 2481 120 1086
Tesla Champs: 1.) 2056 1690 3015 1405
Carson Champs: 4.) 2122 2052 3538 41
Hopper Champs: 1.) 148 1678 364 2990

Newton vs. Hopper
vs.
Curie vs. Carver

vs.

Galileo vs. Carson
vs.
Archimedes vs. Tesla

EDIT: Bolded teams have previous championships. Underlined teams have previously gone to Einstein.

8th alliance Curie and 7th alliance Newton. This will be interesting to see how they perform against 1st (and potentially 2nd) seeded teams.

Carver champs should have 120, not 910…

Go Taters

MAR’s Einstein representation streak lives on through 41 the RoboWarriors! Good luck to them and every other team. This is going to be a really good final set of matches.

Team Breakdown:

New York: 694 1511 3015 1405
California: 330 1197 1678 3476
Michigan: 217 3538 5050
Ontario: 188 2056 4678
Israel: 1690 3339
Ohio: 120 379
Connecticut (and NEFIRST): 195
Florida: 1065
Idaho: 2122
Illinois: 2481
Indiana: 1501
Minnesota: 2052
Mississippi: 364
Missouri: 1986
Nevada: 987
New Jersey (and MAR): 41
North Carolina: 4828
Oregon (and PNW): 2990
Texas: 148
Virginia: 1086

Bolded teams have previous championships. Underlined teams have previously gone to Einstein. Bolded states/provinces/countries are sending their first teams to Einstein.

I am not sure about this, but it seems that 1986 is the first team from Missouri to make it to Einstein!

For those that are at CMP, does anyone have an actual approximate starting time for Einstein matches? I’m getting my timezones all confused.

3:30 PM EST

This might help, saw it on Reddit:

That countdown is wonderful but oh so torturous.

congrats to 2990 on being the second PNW team to win their field, and the first team from oregon!

if y’all play a match, you’ll also be the first PNW team on the Einstein carpet

My predictions - this could really go any way though, I’m in no way confident.

QF Newton 217 3476 4678 188
SF Galileo 195 987 1197 1065
QF Archimedes 1501 1986 5050 4828

QF Carson 2122 2052 3538 41
F  Hopper 148 1678 364 2990

Districts represented on Einstein this year:

  • Chesapeake: 1086
  • Indiana: 1501
  • Mid Atlantic: 41
  • Michigan: 217, 3538, 5050
  • New England: 195
  • North Carolina: 4828
  • Pacific Northwest: 2990

Every district is represented except Georgia.

Just curious, which PNW team was the first to win their field?

Does the fact that teams have a full student turnover every 4 years play into how anyone views these same teams? For example, 330 won their championship back in 2005. Clearly, this is not the same 330 team that is going to Einstein today.

Hopper over Newton in 3
Carver over Curie in 2
Galileo over Carson in 2
Tesla over Archimedes in 2

Hopper over Carver in 3

Hopper over Tesla in 3

1678 and 148 get their second World Championships each, with 1678 becoming only the third (and last) team to win back-to-back Championships. 364 and 2990 get their first World Championships.

Before 2016, NY had been to Einstein twice, with 1507 in 2009 and 20 in 2015. Now we have 4 teams on Einstein. New York really stepped up our play this year!

INSIGHTS

217 and 148 are each going for their third championship, though this time they’ll be on opposite sides of the glass in quarterfinals.

330, 987, and 1678 are all going for their second championship.

1678 has been on Einstein 4 years in a row.

148, 330, 987, 2056, 3339, and 3476 have been on Einstein 2 years in a row.

987 has been on Einstein a total of 5 times.

This year, some fantastic teams made Einstein for the first time. 1986 has been a Missouri powerhouse for a long time, and 2122 has been excelling for years. 1501 and 2052 have also been great, and they finally get a chance on the big stage.

This is a big year for the state of New York, sending four teams to Einstein. It’s also a great year for Israel - they sent two of their regional champions to Einstein - and for Idaho, Mississippi, Missouri, and Oregon.

492 won last year but never played on Einstein.

Also Curie was a perfect reverse bracket. 5-8 won quarters, 7 and 8 won semis, and 8 won. Has that ever happened before?
