HAVOC has always had a round robin tournament to allow all teams more matches and to play further into the end of the competition. This also allows the alliance more time together to develop strategies and work together. The last few years, we’ve posted specific ranking rules that mimic regular ranking. The top two in the playoff ranking go to finals. We release these rules to the teams at the event. This year we will try to publicize it in advance since RPs don’t give more points in the playoffs in Power Up. It would be interesting to hear from our attending teams how they would prefer to do playoff rankings before we finalize it.
Having competed at the HAVOC off season event before I am a big supporter of the event. It is usually very smoothly run and the round robin format has run smoothly. Thumbs up to you guys for running a great off season!
I see that the Google Form listed on team708.org for the volunteer registration is from last year. I can’t find any other volunteer registration forms and the event is not listed in VIMS. Should I fill out the form or is there something that I’m missing?
Hi Holly. Thanks for reaching out. Volunteering is a great experience especially as a student!
I updated the form to remove the date. We keep it simple and use the same form from year to year.
You are correct that HAVOC is not listed in VIMS as it is a non-official FIRST event.
We are always looking for more volunteers if anyone wants to try something new! Go to team708.org/havoc to sign up (link is at the bottom of the page)! For any questions, reach out to havoc[at]team708.org.
Also, we still have room for any teams to come. Register today!
FIRST Mid-Atlantic is giving away old field elements at HAVOC. Mostly plastics from 2015-2018. There’s scale and switch parts, Stronghold plastics with graphics, chute doors from Recycle Rush, serializer parts from Steamworks, and much more. The material is great for prototyping or hanging on your wall. We also have totes full of partially used tape, cable ties, and other field consumables.
Sab-Bot-age 1640 would like to thank out partners Nemisis 2590 ( captain), 609 Robo “corsairs” for an exciting elimination and win at Havoc! I believe every team there had a great event run by an excellent organization " 708 Hatters robotics ", and hope to see all our FRC friends at the future events.
