In previous years 4607 has taken our paper scouting data, stayed up super late on Friday night compiling it into a spreadsheet, and then angrily discarded all of it after realizing our scouts were watching matches from some parallel universe.
Then we frantically called up 5690/2526/our other friends with great scouting data and proceeded to pick good enough alliances to beat whatever team provided us with the scouting data in the quarterfinals. It’s literally happened 4 times… so now nobody shares their scouting data with us and we had to figure it out for ourselves
Luckily @hutchMN joined us this year and overhauled our scouting system. We have a solid scouting system through Google sheets with formulas that generate an auto-pick list which we compare to a pick list that we generate manually after reviewing footage of teams in a direct comparison. Pick-list meetings have been cut down significantly which leaves the team in a better spot going into the final day of our events. Matt can explain our system in more detail!
