Post below if you want to make your pitch for a team that should be in the FRC Top 25 voting.

Note: ISR District Event #3, Southern Cross Regional, and Canadian Pacific Regional will be eligible for week 3 voting

I know don’t they don’t have a powerhouse reputation by any means, but 1493 from Tech Valley is going to be high on my list. They are one of the best switch/exchange bots in the world right now. They had a two-cube switch auto and could seamlessly transition between attacking their switch, the opponent switch, filling the vault, and defense.

After seeding second, with the help of only one scale robot, they were able to fight their way through scale talents of 3990 and 3996 in semis and 2791 and 20 in finals to earn their first blue banner. This team is going to make a killer second pick in Detroit, but only if they slip that far.

I usually don’t vote because I’m at an event and don’t get to see all the robots from around the world, but I figure I can share some insight from the event I was at.

The MAR Bridgewater-Raritan event had some very good robots that I think people should watch for. The finals showcased 4 of the top teams: 2590 and 1923 vs 303 and 56. Finals 1 had some great scale action.Finals 2 there was a bit of a switch up in strategy, it was more switch oriented, a very close match. Finals 3 showed both scale and switch focused strategies. Overall these were very intense finals matches with some interesting strategies.

Well, I actually managed to compile everything this time while there is still plenty of time to vote.

Any reason 4613 is listed twice?

I guess its because they are counted once for the southern cross regional, and once for the southern pacific regional. Out of curiosity, do you think you can post the top elo teams down to 50?

Can you attach an event name or code to each team? It should make this clear.

Yep, these events at weird times throw off the simple copy-paste I usually do. The two 4613’s on the previous list is due to them competing at two events included in this poll.

Sure. I removed any duplicates I saw.

Anyone can view full data in my scouting database. It’s easy to sort just by week 3 events there, but I had to manually add in the teams from the three week 2 events and remove teams that competed twice (like 4613).

I think 2811, StormBots, is worthy of the top 25 this week. After being on the cusp of greatness for several years, they broke out onto the PNW scene this year, captaining one finalist and one winning alliance in their first two events so far. They’ve looked incredible at both events and especially impressed at their competition this week. Fantastic team, both on and off the field, and would recommend putting them in the top 25 for this week.

Brian,
Thank you for the shout out- we decided early in the season not to stretch our resources and be a really good switch/exchange robot. This would save us time and allow our programming team time to get our auto just like we imagined. I never imagined it would work out as well and how it did.

probably the best autonomous mode I’ve seen till now, congratulations team 1493, excited to see you guys in detroit

2481 is very good with their swerve

+1. I was present for CIR, and their #1 ELO rank for the week is no joke.

Also as a little bit of self-promotion, this was 225’s best match of the weekend (16 cubes + climb)

I second this motion. They performed incredibly well, winning every match they played this weekend, with a large winning margin in almost all of them.

3990 has a very good swerve drive, but the driver skill just isn’t strong enough to merit that status. Though with six weeks to practice before Detroit, that could certainly change.

3990 does certainly deserve recognition. When the scale was tipped in their favor, they could cement their lead frighteningyly quickly.

Thank you both for the positive comments for our team (2811). We are looking forward to seeing everyone at PacNW Championships! There are some great robots in the PacNW this year.

Just hit 300 submissions for this week! Reminder that polls will close at 7pm ET sharp tonight!

Vote for 319 because today is 3/19

Maybe this week, but 2910 will want a word next week.

5803/1983/2046/2811 would be great PNW Bots to look into this week.

I agree with this statement😂
