Michigan State Championship

It seems like now would be a good time to make one of these threads with only one competition left. Ignoring teams going next week as their second event and next week’s chairman’s winners, here’s the list of teams qualified by DCA:

1718 33
2771 503
1023 548
2137 1711
1506 280
2337 68

According to the FiM unofficial ranking spread sheet, these teams will likely qualify by points (again ignoring next week):

2337  107   67    314
4967  33    2054  27
1023  469   1718  2137
3098  494   548   862
3602  4391  3620  74
857   2851  51    503
70    5114  815   68
573   4819  4362  2959
2474  4988  3604  2619
4956  1918  3688  1711
2771  3618

Here’s the EI and RAS list:

1023 470
4377 2337
3602 27
302 857
2771 548
141 1
5073 5086
4967 5114
4988 4961
5155 5230
4956 5090
5173 4998

The FiM ranking sheet assumes 80pts as the cut off, but I think it will be a little bit lower and others will get in. Also, it looks like there will be at least twice as many rookies there compared to last year’s two. Any predictions on winners and awards?

Have there been any announcements relating to the blog post about new award quantities?

Are you including the ones who won RAS and Rookie Inspiration? IIRC, no rookie competed with robot at MSC in 2013, though they did compete for awards.

857 is pumped to not be the 64th invited team!

No, RAS winners compete for RAS, but they do not bring a robot to compete with. RI only gives points. I thought I remembered there being no rookies last year, but http://www.thebluealliance.com/event/2013micmp says that there were two.

Actually, upon closer inspection, the two rookie teams on that list are the RI and RAS winners, and they aren’t in any matches, So there weren’t any rookies there. This year there should be at least 4 actually competing with a robot.

I’m not sure about last year, but in year’s past, there are more rookies that qualify to compete with their robot than actually compete. Often times, they do not expect to get that far, and as such, are not prepared to compete, whether financially or otherwise.

Im willing to bet 5114 will be ready, right?:cool:

To be honest, we are stilling working on it. It’s spring break for Fenton that week, and since we didn’t start out team until kickoff, many of the students and parents will be out of town, having already made reservations long before that. But we’ll see.

You can count on 4967 to be there :]

Last year no rookies qualified at all, which was a first for FiM. But in years past, not just rookies, but also veteran teams pass up a opportunity at MSC, because of the cost.

Unfortunately it looks like 3414 will not make it down this year. We had a fun season but did not accumulate enough points.

Although with all of the fun that happens there, I may try to stop by and watch some matches. Good luck to all teams that make it.

we’ve been told the cutoff will likely be 75pts, +/- 2pts.

We’re currently sitting at 75 points. Little bit nervous, lol. Hoping we get to go though!

(http://www.dptv.org/programs/first-robotics/) They always do a great job, I can’t wait to watch.

We’re still a bit short on field resetters and safety glass attendants for Wednesday night of MSC. Is anyone willing and able to help? Please send me an e-mail at lisaperez [at] gmail [dot] com if so. Thanks :slight_smile:

Team 3175 is excited to be projected to qualify for MSC with 82 points (possibly more, depending on awards) for the first time since 2010!

If someone could post a link to the list of teams qualified for the MSC here that’d be greatly appreciated.

The Official State Rankings are in the FiM website. The final rankings after this weekends events will be posted sometime soon.

FIRST in Michigan posted the list of qualified teams on their Facebook page.

I apologize for any errors in transcription.

Argh you guys were an absolute blast to play with at Howell, quite the shame.

It’s awesome to see 7 Rookie teams advancing on, compared to zero last year…
