California Rankings

As of Week 2, there are 94 California teams that have competed. I used the FiM ranking calculation and applied it to California teams.

I hope to do this each week. Because teams compete in different number of events, I plan to include both the team’s highest event and their average number of points. At this point, no CA team has competed in more then one event, so it’s not necessary. I’m including any team from CA, even if they compete in event(s) outside CA.

Here’s the scoring system, from the FiM Rules Supplement

Let me know if you find any errors.

This is cool stuff. Though I’ve looked at it in the past, I’m not too familiar with the FiM scoring system. Is there no point value associated with RCA, EI, and RAS?

Nope. Those awards send the team to MSC, but without the robot (unless the robot qualifies too, which often happens).

I think that was the case in the first year of districts, but at this point District Chairman’s award teams compete at states with their robot, regardless of other points. Engineering Inspiration and Rookie All Star at district level don’t automatically qualify a team for states with their robot, but only district winners are eligible to win the state level award.

This seems strange, it almost seems more advantageous to win the Rookie Inspiration Award than the Rookie All Star Award.

This is really cool, thanks for putting this together Joe! I’m excited to see 1678 in the #1 spot, they’ve come a long way and have a bright future ahead of them!

Also, I haven’t seen this mentioned on CD, but California FIRST is posting a California Top 20 after each week of regionals. You can check it out here. These rankings are poll-based, but kind of fun nonetheless.

Getting pumped for the week 4 CA events!

Well dang this is cool. Helps me see what it would be like if California changed to FiC. It’s also interesting comparing the opinion polls posted by Mike Corsetto with the FiM rankings.

Big thumbs up for this!

I considered adding in points for those awards, but ultimately decided not to, so that the results can be compared to FiM/MAR.

There are those who feel very strongly that assigning some sort of point value to these awards, particularly the Chairman’s Award, would go against everything FIRST stands for. To say that the Chairman’s Award is equivalent to X matches won defeats the intent of the award.

When not if :slight_smile:

Coming next year or the year after, I don’t recall off the top of my head.

Not next year.

It would be FiNC, and FiSC. (Southern and Nothern)

Ok. I didn’t make it to the meeting that was held so I just got the cliff notes.

I’m not so sure they’d split California, I’ve imagined the whole state would be lumped with Nevada and Hawaii.
And when CA gets the district model do you imagine the championships would be held at Silicon Valley or somewhere else?

I don’t believe the plan involves NV or HI right now, at least as FIRST sees it. I know the Hawaii teams want to be able to play here (and the Nevada teams too I’m sure). The teams in our area seemed to support making that happen, but HQ did not seem too keen on that plan.

Aren’t there a handful of teams from Australia that go to Hawaii? If there was a CA-NEV-HA system, they would have to be included as well, which is one reason that an integrated system might be complicated.

Looking forward to the day when district points are interchangeable from region to region (you go where ever you want to and the points you accumulate add up regardless).

Only one team from California played in week 3, team 1836 traveling all the way to Israel. Here are the updated rankings.

I started to do this for MO & KS teams but gave up because I didn’t have time to slog through all of the various places I’d need to get all of the information. Do you have a convenient source of data all in one place, or reasonably automatic?

Joe,

In Michigan, we only count the first two district events for points.
