This is an extremely packed post. Just an update, and it’s better than posting 4 times.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to pull TBA data for a while. If anyone could help with the basics, or direct me into the right direction, that would be great.
I’ve started the strategy alliance, and we finally scouted week 2 MABRI! (here’s our data, easily put into a CSV file wk2_se_mass.xlsx (12.2 KB)
Further, I encourage you to take a look at the importance of scouting, through FRC 3205’s match schedule. 9 of 11 matches (I think) were against a 3rd level climb, or some other extremely high ranked team. They did extremely well, but at the end, ranked 36/38. However, because we scouted (thanks to all y’all who have been helping with this) I ended up convincing my captain FRC 3635 to pick them. During the Quarter Finals, they went under the radar, as the opposing alliance’s defense bot came and defended us, and scored enough cargo to move us into the Semi-Finals.
And for the Alliance update- if you have been following along. IT DID AMAZING! I no longer had to stay up in the stands and I could help Drive Team strategize our next match- incredibly helpful and stress relieving. Maybe a white paper upcoming… (my team 2877 has been encouraging all of us to make white papers about everything)
Teams- Good luck and scout well!
