1.) Scheduling gods exist when there are 65 teams at a regional.
2) Being a consistent shooter is something that’s not being seen much, but a lot of teams can do it if they use their resources wisely.
3) Defense is not being played, but when it is, there is a severe impact on an alliance’s offense when.
4) A 50 point dumper is not enough to offset an alliance with 2 good scorers that have 10 point hangs.
Some of the more controversial stuff:
Referees are NOT calling the 10 point hang properly. I have videos of this, but in our Quarterfinals match 1-2 Team 1772 was not hung up properly, but they got the points, which ended up being the deciding factor and sending our quarterfinals to a 3rd match.
G30 exists, referees. Referees are not calling G30, and it’s been affecting outcomes of matches! Our Quarterfinals match 1-3, 1772 infracted G30 5 different times, yet it was not called once. We tied that match 70-70, but because the referees instead called us for our human player putting a foot outside of the white line, we ended up losing 70-71, despite numerous infractions of G30 by 1772.
I understand the referees can’t see everything, but 5 blatant infractions of G30 shouldn’t go unnoticed, and everytime a climb is suspicious, DO THE PAPER TEST!
The toughest thing I had to do this afternoon was to help keep the students calm and explain to them the situation and about us getting unlucky. Toughest thing I have had to say.
I’ll post another thread about this issue with some videos to make sure that any referees on CD can be prepared.
