Please Scout!

As many of you are finding out today, and as some of you found out yesterday, there are quite a few 50th to 25th percentile teams high in the draft. This is due to an increased effect of match schedule on ranking points this year. If a team can balance in auto, then only two robots need to get onto the charge station to get the RP. This means that if one is paired with a team with a strong auto each match, there is a good chance of consistently scoring 1-3 RP. Add disparities in match schedule, and you get the result.
Please, even if you think you have a 0% chance of placing high at the start of the competition, scout. Otherwise, you might be surprised, and be in a situation where you have only 2-3 matches left to scout each team. Trust me, picking teams by their rank is a losing strategy.
