It has recently been brought to my attention that the NorCal State Championships went from having 16 open spots to having zero. In relation, an email sent to the RECF representative of that state to an undisclosed team number revealed that Skills would not qualify a team to the NorCal State Championships, directly opposing the VRC Qualification Criteria PDF . Furthermore, all these changes were made in a span of a night. While I am not directly affected by this, it shocks me that a RECF representative would change a vital part of Qualification so late into the season. I know many teams who make robots focused on qualifying for States through skills and after getting their high scores are at a loss for words now. It feels as though all their hard work and all the money spent in going to competitions was not worth it at all. These are just my two cents. Feel free to comment what you think. I hopefully would like to see this be reverted and any major changes to the Qualification system be made apparent to the competitors EARLIER than 2 weeks from the State Championships.
