I wanted to thank you guys thinking of us (1001) when you were thinking of your picks.
It ment a lot coming from a great team like you!
I almost wish we would have lost some more rounds just so we were not so high ranked so you could have picked us…LOL;) But I am really glad you won! your robot was the best one & is showed when you won with no help from 1126 in the last round…
Unfortunately, sorry doesn’t cut it here. 2048 deserves their medals as much as any team on our alliance or any alliance.
That “1 time” you casually mention was critical. Our robot was stuck in the fence and we couldn’t move. 2048 rammed us with perfect timing to get us free and continue to play the first round of the finals match. 2048’s ramming was not an accident or a mistake, but a well executed strategic move.
Considering how our robot got damaged in the match after that (extreme collision), if we wouldn’t have had them there to help us off the wall and we lost the first round of finals, we would have had to run the remaining two matches… that third match may have been too much for our machine in it’s state.
Also, we had some close matches, and the points that 2048 made running those perfect, PENALTY FREE (great job girls!) runs around the track eeked our alliance further to the end.
2048 was definitely an alliance contributor.
Thanks again to 1126 and 1386 as well!
p.s. 1126/Sparx: What happened to you guys in the final final? I suddenly realized I never asked afterwards.
Wow…way to post that on a forum that gives you and your team an image (and a bad one right now at that). Keep that kind of stuff to yourself. All teams that participate work their hardest and like it was said, the ramming in that 1 round was useful to the alliance.
What an incredible accomplishment. Our team has never done more than one regional, and I don’t think we’d have the stamina to go to three regionals… and still be able to pull off three wins. I really wish my team could have played with (or even against) you guys- I’m looking forward to seeing you play in Atlanta. Congrats!
