Your top 10 teams heading into each FIRST championship?

With the Houston and Detroit Championships fast approaching, I’m curious as to who you think the top 10 best teams are for each championship, based on how they have played at their events they have attended? It will be really interesting to look back at this list, and see how many of these teams made it to Einstein and who got upset in the divisional playoffs!

Detroit (using Caleb’s data):

|2056|OP Robotics|
|1114|Simbotics|
|33|Killer Bees|
|5050|Cow Town Robotics|
|1807|Redbird Robotics|
|3538|RoboJackets|
|133|B.E.R.T.|
|2168|Aluminum Falcons|
|1796|RoboTigers|
|2767|Stryke Force|

Relying only on what I have seen up close here in Michigan, I would have included 5460, 2851, 3604, 910, 1918, 2075, and 67. Any of the ten eleven FiM teams on my list will make an excellent AC or 1st Pick at Detroit.

1619 is going to houston. Any team with a similar number?

No, it just escaped me that Colorado teams don’t go to Detroit. Too bad. I’ve enjoyed watching Up-A-Creek pre-2017.

Correcting my earlier post.

Some states get me too, I always think Tennessee and Missouri go to Detroit. But they go to Houston.

My personal rankings look like:

Houston:

  1. 1323
  2. 1678
  3. 148
  4. 3310
  5. 118
  6. 1619
  7. 2910
  8. 330
  9. 971
  10. 254

Detroit:

  1. 2056
  2. 1114
  3. 2791
  4. 2767
  5. 1690
  6. 987
  7. 1241
  8. 33
  9. 910
  10. 3339

And based on the top 10s, Houston > Detroit

I’m not familiar with all of the teams, but after watching 2056 and 1114 go head to head that matchup is a coin toss. Out of Ontario 1241 is very strong also but just a bit below 1114 and 2056.

I’m dying to see the Detroit divs and finally see the other bots that I’ve not had the opportunity to see in person.

Lack of 2056 is quite interesting

No 195?

Don’t let your regional bias dictate your rankings THAT much. You’re missing a lot of good Michigan, New England, and uh 2056.

I got the number wrong sorry. 2062 should be 2056. Not sure how I did that… Either way, these are the teams I expect to go far in their divisions based on what I have seen this season.

Their performance this year has not been… 195ish.

Not to toot my own horn here… but 5 banners and…

we feel “195-ish”!

This list is very region-biased it seems. 5/10 of your teams being from IL/WI seems… optimistic?

More surprising is that given the region-bias it shows you somehow don’t have 1756 on this list?

I’d be amazed if at least 1 team from NE was not one of the top 10 performing teams, and also surprised if there wasn’t more then 2 FiM teams.

I suspect we will see a similar dynamic to last year. Houston’s top end will be better but Detroit will have a deeper field.

I just go with teams I have seen and for some if them, teams I have mon opr data for. I haven’t seen much New England so I can’t really comment on them. Not a too serious list if I was making a serious list Id have to watch more matches.

Top 10 Houston:
1323, 1678, 971, 1619, 254, 148, 3310, 330, 2910, then I’ll just throw in 5190 for fun

Top 10 Detroit:
This is an impossible task, so I’ll just split it up
Ontario: 2056, 1114, 1241, 3683, 1325
FiM: 5460, 2767, 3538, 910, 33, 1684 HM
NE: 195, 125, 2168, 230, 5687
ISR: 1690, 3339, 3075, 1577, 4338
FMA: 225, 303, 1923, 11, 5401 holy cow
Indiana: 868, 234, 1747, 1720, 7457
Midwest: 5172, 930, 2481, 111, 525
New York: 2791, 1796, 20, 340, 3015, 870 (had to cheat)
WOW: 4028, 379, 3324, 48, 120 for double finalists
Quebec: 3990, 3986, 3996, 3386, 5618
CHS: 401, 401, 401, 401, 401 (my knowledge only spans so far)
Misc: 987 & 16
And probably missed a bunch

So yes, I may have a slight location bias…
