What an absolutely amazing list of teams. But only 4 will stand alone atop the world. This is where history is written. This is where redemption is fought for.

Sad that only 1 of the 3 world champs are attending though. :frowning:

Really excited to be able to come down and watch the action, though our robot won’t be there.

Getting excited to watch the webcast even though i won’t be there still will be fun to watch.

25 is no longer attending? :frowning:
Was really hoping for a MAR v FiM special grudge match. :wink:

Me too.

We are very sad that 25 can’t attend.
There is still room on our bus if things change. :wink:

Maybe we can take up a collection for them?

125 is honored and stoked to play with these awesome teams. See everyone in a week!

Team 45 is really excited for IRI and have made plenty of modifications to our robot.

Unfortunately, I’ll be in Cape Girardeau at my internship. Would have loved to attend though.

Also kind of shocked to see that 868 is the 37th team on the list, does anyone know of another event so veteran heavy? Means we’ve got more than 40 teams with a decade of experience or more.

We’re really going to miss 25 :frowning:

It is incredible. Though is it just me, or is it less veteran heavy than last year? We’ve got some very impressive newer teams too!

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think this is because they have been transitioning the selection criteria from Location based (Indiana teams getting a HUGE boost in selection priority) to almost entirely performance based… Aside from more IN teams applying due to reduced logistics costs (compared to other states), to me, it looks like being an Indiana team is of marginal if any benefit in terms of making the list.

The existence and growth of CAGE Match took a lot of pressure off the IRI selection process. Now IRI can fully embrace its role as the competition where egos come to play.

And the existence of the CAGE match wouldn’t be possible without the support from the host teams of IRI. Thanks guys.

Exactly. You two stole my next post.

Will there be a webcam this year, and if so, what is its location?

I’m hoping the webcam will be located so the full-field can be seen. :stuck_out_tongue:

Actually 3 cameras - one mid way from each end, and one in the corner of the gym to provide a full field view. Students will switch the video feed going out to the best / most interesting action.

Just wanted to let everyone know the match schedule is now available.
