Out of curiosity, does anyone have elimination alliances and results for either day? Couldn’t find a VOD or archived stream.

This was the finals on Sunday – Blue won but went to the tiebreaker.

For some reason, FIRST NC hasn’t added any data to the Blue Alliance listing for these events and the Twitch streams don’t seem to have been retained on Twitch or posted to YouTube. I’m going to try and see what happened with that and hopefully we can get the full match, alliance, playoff, and video information posted. My own team did very well at THOR 1 (captained the #2 alliance, the best we’ve ever done at an event) and would love to have this immortalized on Blue Alliance.
