Some people are just a bit eager to “contribute.” Information is worthless without context. We don’t have that context yet. The information being outputted now is just going to make this thread messy and harder to distinguish the useful information.
If I’m not in a week 1 regional, and all I have is the data from FRC-Spy (for example) then I think I’d rather pick a category of analysis that would better benefit me than “who has the high score”. For example, I might watch the NJ Regional scores of the 4 (5?) teams that are coming to the DC regional. Or I might watch to see teams who have good minibots and how they use them (so far 148 hasn’t had a climb yet, 1:14PM). Another interesting note is that (from glancing over) about half of the matches have several penalties in them.
“High Score” allows for bragging rights, but that’s about it.
Though I do admit, it feels really nice when the high score for a regional belongs to an alliance you were part of
And I’m watching NJ for the teams that will be attending VA. I have a full page of notes on the teams I’m specifically looking for, but that doesn’t mean I’m not paying attention to other teams.
Sean is right in saying that a score as a number means nothing if we don’t know how those points were scored. Were 1 or 2 minibots deployed, and what places did they finish in the race? How many complete logos were scored?
I’ve been through a Week 1 regional where my team’s alliance held the highest score on the very first day of competition. It was an excellent feeling.
And Jesse, 148 just played again. 54 points (60 - 6 penalty points), still no minibot.
My contribution: I like knowing “what is a ‘high score’ in Logomotion?”, and knowing the real-world maximum value is a first step towards knowing how high the scores can go. Obviously it’d be better to have a full histogram of scores, but that won’t be forthcoming for a little while.
Don’t know why anyone is getting worked up over the existence of this thread. It’s several times more useful than the “post the next number” thread or any of the other “for fun”-type threads. It isn’t strictly useful, but it is entertaining.
Highest alliance score: FLR Q20: 3181,3015 and 1126 scored 97.
If people are serious about scouting, they’ll be looking at all of the match results. I don’t believe they’d find anything particularly useful in the scattered and cherry-picked information posted here.
If it wasn’t time for this thread yet, no one else would have posted score updates…
