NYSoM Pre-Champs Top 25

To start this lead-up to St. Louis champs, we’re going to post a pre-champs Top 25, and also what New York State would look like in a district system.

New York has a ton of excellent teams this year across the board, and it’s a shame not all of them can compete more this season. Of our Top 25, only 13 of these teams will be competing at one of the championships. And that’s not to say that the teams that did qualify instead of these teams weren’t deserving. Many of these teams played the right strategy and peaked at the right times to bring home wins when they needed to, but it’s unfortunate some of these other teams couldn’t compete more than even just once.

First, the district rankings. For single-event teams, their first event points are doubled, and the team age bonus has been applied. The “Champs?” column checks whether the team qualified for the Championship, not whether they’re actually going, and not if they’re attending via a waitlist spot.

It’s easy to see that a lot of good teams that would have otherwise qualified for the district championship have their seasons over already. In addition, many of these teams are single-event teams. Some excellent teams have seasons that are finished. And some of the teams on the list have no chance to improve after seeing their initial product not perform the way they wanted it to. A district system would allow teams up and down the board to get more matches and more chances to play at higher levels than they currently do.

For reference, New York would likely have a similarly sized district championship to MAR, New England, or the PNW, with between 60 and 70 teams attending.

But enough about the district system. Next up is the NY Top 25. Teams from New York this year excelled at Steamworks, and eliminations at all of our events were competitive, with surefire favorites being knocked out by scrappy lower seeds and impressive strategic play. If you’re not listed, that doesn’t mean you’re not good, just that it’s very difficult to rank teams once you get to a certain point on this list.

  1.    **3015**
    

Ranger Robotics is hands-down the best New York robot heading into the championship. Their 40kPa autonomous is the eye-catching part of their routine, and has occasionally scored above 30kPa entirely in autonomous, however what gets looked past is how strong their gear game is too. They started the season with a well-engineered gear floor pickup, and despite not having a ton of 4 rotor matches, they’re capable of scoring a large quantity of gears when they put their mind to it.
1.

  1.    **340**
    

Greater Rochester Robotics turned heads at the end of build season with Bruce, their small, all-black gear-focused machine. Boasting one of the best floor pickups in all of FRC, which picks up and places gears like it’s magic, 340 stands with the best gear robots in the world.
1.

  1. **1796**
    

The RoboTigers are the best team in New York that did not qualify for the championship. Luckily, they did sneak into a waitlist spot, so St. Louis can see just how good their green machine is. Their beautifully engineered robot boasts both feeder station and floor pickup for gears, as well as multiple autonomous modes that place gears and shoot their ten balls. If they need to break ties with their high goal shooting, they can do that too.
1.

  1. **3419**
    

The RoHawks are back at it again with their swerve drive this year. 3419’s excellent gear floor pickup and driving skills earned them the first overall selection at the New York City event, and they were also the third seeded captain at the Hudson Valley Regional.
1.

  1. **20**
    

The Rocketeers don’t do anything crazy, and they’re the first team on this list without a floor pickup for gears. 20’s ability stems from how quickly and consistently they can cycle back and forth across the field, and how rapidly their pilot pulls gears out of their passive gear mechanism. That, coupled with their fast climb and ability to break ties with their shooting, is why 20 is going to be a contender at the championship.
1.

  1. **333**
    

The Megalodons surprised the world by upsetting the #1 seeded 195 at Tech Valley, then backed it up with a finalist finish at the New York City event. Their secret is just consistency and practice.
1.

  1. **5254**
    

HYPE had mediocre results compared to their last two seasons, reaching the semifinals and quarterfinals respectively. But hidden behind their quarterfinals finish at SBPLI was one of the best robots at the event, with a capable floor intake for gears, as well as accurate gear and ball scoring autonomous modes.
1.

  1. **3624**
    

The Thundercolts built a tiny robot with a great passive gear mechanism and climber. They then backed that up by having autonomous modes for every peg, and having well-practiced drivers. They lost some close matches in the finals of both the Tech Valley and Long Island Regionals, and unfortunately did not qualify for the championship.
1.

  1. **2791**
    

Shaker Robotics joined the Megalodons to take down the #1 seed at Tech Valley. They made some improvements to their robot, and captained the #5 seeded alliance at New York City to take the #1 seeded 4613 to three matches in the semifinals. Shaker’s improved gear game and fuel game will put them in contention at the championship.
1.

  1. **1405**
    

The Finney Falcons normally attend one Regional event each year, but after they saw their potential at the Finger Lakes Regional, they signed up for one more go. At Midwest, they impressed the world, captaining the third seeded alliance to the semifinals and being narrowly defeated by the eventual champions. 1405 doesn’t have the fuel upside of some of the teams on this list, and they don’t seem to deal with defense well, but their dual climber-gear collector is one of the best in the state at cleaning up messes left by partners and opponents.
1.

  1. **5236**
    

Man O’ War Robotics keeps building good robots that do the right things well. 5236’s floor intake for gears, solid gear autonomous modes, and practice driving put them into eliminations contention at the New York Tech Valley Regional as the sixth overall selection. They managed to upset the #3 seed, but lost in the semifinals to the stacked #2 seed. That being their only event, 5236’s season ended yet again.
1.

  1. **1507**
    

The Warlocks seeded first at Finger Lakes and third at Buckeye with their consistent gear-scoring machine. Their cycling speed and their ability to shoot a few balls in autonomous to break ties qualified 1507 for the championship, however, due to an unfortunate lack of funding, 1507 is not able to attend the championship this year.
1.

  1. **229**
    

Division by Zero built a simple robot with just a passive gear mechanism and a climber that just worked. 229 captained the #1 seeded alliance at the Montreal event, losing in the finals due to some unforeseen robot failures. They did, however, earn a wildcard, so they can tear it up at the championship.
1.

  1. **1511**
    

The Rolling Thunder finally won another regional, after being in a drought since 2013. 1511’s consistent, fast cycling and great coordination between them and their partners earned them the #2 seed at the Midwest Regional, and after some hard-fought eliminations matches, the banner.
1.

  1. **191**
    

The X-Cats have built their best robot in years, and they have the hardware to show for it. 191’s small footprint and fast cycling earned them the #2 seed at the Finger Lakes Regional, where they selected 3015 and cruised through the elimination rounds.
1.

  1. **870**
    

Team RICE brought the most consistent robot at both FLR and SBPLI, but they lacked a high upside to really carry the day. RICE’s consistent autonomous mode that placed a gear on the center peg, as well as their ability to score 3-4 gears consistently in the teleoperated period earned them a high pick at both their events, but they couldn’t break through in the elimination rounds.
1.

  1. **4508    **
    

The Steel Stallions from Schuylerville have built their best robot ever, even as it crawls across the field. 4508’s ability to consistently place 4-5 gears in a match, despite their slow drivetrain is a testament to how well-built their machine is. With some improvements to their drivetrain, expect 4508 to impress at the championship.
1.

  1. **694**
    

Stuypulse’s quick feeder station retrieval and placement earned them the second overall selection in South Florida, and the 2nd overall seed at the NYC event. At South Florida they were upset in the quarters, but at NYC they held their seed, losing only in the finals to Barker’s powerful alliance. 694 qualified for the championship with their Chairman’s award, but their robot is just as good as their machine last year, and that one made it to Einstein.
1.

  1. **2601**
    

The Steel Hawks built a decent robot, and coupled that with excellent driving and scouting to put together a fearsome #8 seeded alliance at the Hudson Valley Regional and take home the banner.
1.

  1. **1559**
    

DevilTech built a simple cycling robot with an octocanum drivetrain and a bunch of driver practice. They earned the #2 overall selection at Miami Valley and lost in the semifinals to the eventual champions, and their alliance lost int he quarters at FLR.
1.

  1. **5881**
    

The TVHS Dragons didn’t have any kind of huge upside, but they did have a near-perfect autonomous accuracy, and decent cycling capabilities. This earned them the #3 overall selection at the Tech Valley Regional.
1.

  1. **3003**
    

TanX built another solid machine, with a floor pickup for gears and a consistent climb. This earned them the #7 overall selection at the Finger Lakes Regional, as well as the #5 overall selection at the Buckeye Regional.
1.

  1. 263

The Sachem Aftershock have some of the most impressive results of any team on this list. A first round selection at South Florida in Week 1 where they upset the #2 seed, and then being the first seed and eventual champion of the Long Island Regional. 263 has been in the finals of the Long Island Regional now for three years running. Their consistency at hitting a few gears a match and climbing got them there, as well as some sheer luck.
1.

  1. **3838    **
    

Roc City Robotics always finds themselves on the cusp on eliminations, sometimes in, and sometimes out. But not this year. 3838’s consistent side gear autonomous and good gear cycling helped them upset the #3 seed at the Finger Lakes Regional. Unfortunately, facing off against 3015 in the semifinals, as well as a robot failure, took them out of their only 2017 regional.
1.

  1. **3171**
    

The Hurricanes built a solid robot with floor and feeder loading for gears, but had a few difficulties that put them on lower seeded alliances at both their events. At their peak, 3171 could hit six gears in a match, but with a finish in the quarterfinals and the semifinals, their season concluded uneventfully.





This list is far from a comprehensive list of the best teams in the state, but instead just a way to recognize teams that excelled at Steamworks in 2017, even if many of them didn't earn banners for it.

And to the district naysayers, understand that every year we don't move on to districts for one reason or another is another year that plenty of hardworking, deserving teams don't get to move on to higher levels of play. The district system has proven time and time again elsewhere to promote teams based on merit far better than the regional system. 

We have the volunteers, and we can find the venues, let's stop stifling inspiration and make the switch.

How does Chairman’s factor? 3044 qualified off Chairman’s at Tech Valley, but it doesn’t say they qualified.

One other thing that some teams overlooked. Outside our first match (we took a mulligan there) we had good cycle times, and climbed every time, every match.

Our bot wasn’t flashy (our shooter wasn’t quite ready), but it was dependable, and our drive team and pilot provided consistency in a game that was often anything but.

It’s an honor to make the top 25, and we’re already looking forward to next year, and who knows, maybe a trip to Detroit. :slight_smile:

How much does rank at the end of qualifications factor in to this? I feel like my team should be a bit higher than where we are on the list.

Sadly disctrict is something that could have really helped out for our team.
Some mistakes were made at NYC by only shooting our first few matches and not focusing gears enough. Had there been district champs maybe we would be preparing for ST. Louis, along with other teams who deserve to be there right now.

Maybe by 2018 or 2019 we can switch to districts. Oddly enough we got more points at event two, where we ranked lower, and lost in the quarters. I guess quality award raised our points a lot?

It looks like 1511 got more points at E1 than E2 as well, even though they won their second event from the 2 seed. My guess is that some (but not all?) of the events are backwards.

20 and 5254 ranked above Shaker?

:thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking:

You definitely did not calculate this correctly. 2791 couldn’t have possibly won their first event as the fourth overall pick and only scored 45 points. Not even counting their seed, they would get 14 points for their selection, and 30 points for winning the quarters, semis, and finals, plus 5 points for Industrial Design.

I also disagree pretty strongly with the subjective rating, when the team directly above 2791 has literally a subset of their capabilities and performance. The description for 1796 is more similar to 2791’s performance at New York.

My apologies, many of the events were backward in order.

Also fixed.

A reminder that the subjective rankings are absolutely debatable. Teams all the way up and down this list had excellent robots.

would you say you are not very hyped by this thread?

I agree with this, these rankings seem really off.

NYSOM all year has been a little weird.

Not really sure why a Pre-CHAMPS Top 25 contains 9 teams not going to champs. Wouldn’t it make a lot more sense to highlight teams actually going?

Also worth noting 2791 lost by only 3 points to 4613-3419-5891 in sf3, which is essentially just game-to-game variation in fuel scored. With some better communication, 4613 would have fallen for the first time. 2791-2383-1880 were only 1 gear from a 4th rotor with 20ish seconds left. But hey, maybe we are 9th…

I think some of the events are out of order. We won our second event as a 1 seed, which is listed as 35 points. Our first event, we were the 7th pick and semifinalists, which is listed at 68 points. Both of these numbers seem correct if the order of our events is switched.
