This will be very critical for elims because of the pure amount of points some of these low specialist will be able to put up. So far just watching week 0 it looks like the number to be is 8 cycles. I’m almost certain we will be seeing close to teens by the end of week 1, when some of these big teams go undefended.
Since they’re a team that typically builds a full bot and absolutely destroys, and this year decided to specialize low, I would place a lot of money that 1339 will be heavily featured in this discussion after their regionals:
Also I haven’t seen 1011’s bot this year yet, but as the team that in my opinion popularized the “mastering low” mentality (see their 2016 regional win, 2017 regional & champs win) I’m sure they’ll come out with something great if they decide to go low again.
1011 was an excellent switch bot last year as well. We had the privilege of playing a quals match with them at Houston and they absolutely dominated the exchange and switches. This game seems right up their alley.
2655 was one of my favorite teams on Turing last year. We were disappointed when they got scooped up in alliance selections before we could get to them. Their driving and drive coaching was unreal. They were always exactly at the spot on the field that they needed to be.
