How do you win with defense?


I’ve never heard it called the “Groetszky Model” before, but it’s based on his famous quote:


Hey guys thanks for participating in the thread but I feel like it is no longer funny.
The correct answer is “by pushing people across the mid line.”
Thanks for stopping by though!


If you what a pure example of how to win with a defensive strategy look at alliance 7 at the Durham College district event in Ontario and see how they played it.


I suggest you play defense in a way that does not make lots of folks happy to see your robot in this predicament at the end of a match.


Look at any match with 6443 (AEMBOT) In it. Their geared down NEO drivetrain on defense and consistent level 3 Hab climb have led them to seed highly in both their events


I saw a robot interrupt the flow of 2-3 robots at a time.


Watch the Orlando playoffs if you want to know how to win with defense.


Feel free to check us out in playoffs at FLR


Our team when we play defense has been shutting down the the top robots at our event. In the playoffs when we played defense we have been shutting the best reboot down on the opposing alliance from scoring while occurring no penalties. We have won matches becuase of our defense.
