The_ZipTies in WI
Here's The_Wizard's report of his latest robotics event:
On the 23rd of February, The_ZipTies competed at the Wisconsin FTC championship event, hosted by Q-comp. Happy to finally see their friends from last year, The_ZipTies brought some friends of their own, the two other Cranbrook teams.
The_ZipTies won their 1st Qualifying match against last year's winners, Syntax Error, but then lost to them in the third match. After the sixth match, Syntax Error's partner team Mainframe Meltdown, asked us weather we would consider being in an alliance with them for the elimination rounds.
After their Seventh match, The_ZipTies had word from two more teams that The_ZipTies would be their first pick if the opportunity presented itself, and after the last round (a disappointing loss due to carelessness when obtaining ranking points) The_ZipTies had word from the top 4 seeded teams that they would be the first pick.
Eventually, The_ZipTies were picked by VeXellent, the first seeded team, while Syntax Error and Mainframe Meltdown teamed up once again.
After a relatively easy first round (2-0) The_ZipTies and VeXellent were pared up against our school's 3rd team, #37: 19 Below. Much like in Ohio, VeXellent won (2-1) but this time, The_ZipTies were on their side.
Meanwhile, on the other half of the bracket, Syntax Error and Mainframe Meltdown had advanced to the semifinals, but lost against team #604 PWNage, the team which, before any matches, The_Wizard predicted would be the winning alliance captain.
The Finals were very exiting, the first match, however close it was, was won by the Cranbrook alliance. The second, The_ZipTies rotated out, was a tie, and the third didn't count, for with their power, the robots separated the two pared goals. The Last 2 matches were dissapointing losses, match 4 only by 2 points. After the loss of the fifth (the 20 minute finals taking over an hour) everybody was ready for an end, regardless of the outcome.
Well, that's this time's post. See you all in eventually.
andyrm does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send andyrm a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
