Once you understand the Rankings a bit more, you realize the ideal match is to win something like 10-9. With that, we had a 9-0 lead, then turned and fired on ourselves 4 times (freaked the refs out, as they’re focused on penalties, not scoring).
So, can anyone beat 4 self-scores yet? “Coopertitionals?”
Today in our last match, us, 188, and 1450 attempted to do a 6v0 match with the other alliance- we hoped that we could rack up about 15-20 points for one alliance and give both teams the seeding points from it. However, robots malfunctioned and another one didn’t really stick to the plan, so the score ended up being them 5(penaltied to 3) and us 0.
I don’t know if this “scoring for your opponent” is what they expected out of this new scoring system, and coopertition™ stuff, but it sure is a pain to keep track of…
we had a 7-0 match today, and we forgot to score for the other alliance…
when we remembered, it was too late
I really dislike doing that anyways, I don’t think it is a fair way to play the game, I know it is all strategy, but honestly, I am out there to have fun, not to try and do strategic scoring for our opposing alliance
