In honor of the FIFA World Cup, I decided to simulate an FRC competition based on the World Cup in which 32 alliances, representing various regions across the globe, will compete. This will be run using my own simulator, and starting July 1st I will be adding match results daily.
**The regions, and the teams representing them are:
**New Jersey (2590-25-303)
Latin America (3478-2283-1772)
Lake Michigan (2481-7021-1625)
Deep South (16-364-4451)
Ohio and Indiana (868-1747-379)
North Carolina (5190-1533-2642)
North Plains (2122-2130-7048)
New York (694-2791-340)
New Hampshire (319-1519-238)
Southeast Asia (4253-6907-6803)
It varied from region to region. In regions where I was more knowledgeable about I chose the teams that I thought were the best 3, In regions that I wasn’t so knowledgeable about I either used district points or teams that performed best at their local events depending on whether or not they were in a district.
Michigan was an incredibly tough region to pick due to the extreme competition levels and quantity of teams from there. Other than Stryke Force there were no real obvious choices, I could have chosen 3098, 3707, 3357, 3452, 67, 3538, 27, 2337 or several other teams, I omitted 27 from the final Michigan team due to their lack of dominance at their first two events, ranking 16th and 5th and failing to reach the semi-finals.
Originally I had Indiana and Ohio as separate teams, and 4028 was on the Ohio team, but I had to combine or remove some regions. I did consider putting 5406 in instead of 1114, but didn’t for the sheer reason that they’re SimBotics.
4028 was the first overall pick on their championship division and were Subdivision finalists. Personally would have picked them over 379. This is really cool, though. I’m looking forward to seeing that simulator when you post it
This is an awesome idea! For Minnesota I personally would have picked 2052 over 2175. I may be a little bias because I’m a 2052 alumni, but 2052 had won the MN State Championship 3 times, were finalists 2 times, has won the most regionals in Minnesota, and has even made it to Einstein. While 2175 is a very good team, I personally think 2052 would have been a better pick. I’m still looking foward to seeing how the simulation plays out.
