@nware49 i like what you're saying here, and this was what we tried to do at the last competition we attended this year but we ended up picking up a clawbot for elims and then carried them to the finals:/
the only thing i object to is the fact that if you specialize in caps you're ignoring 15 potential points on the flags and only really gaining 6 points by putting them on the flags, I believe it's better to specialize in balls and have the ability to put those caps up top, but moreover focus on flags and then flipping the majority of the caps to your color on the ground
I agree. Like most people are saying, a four motor drive is a good number, then you typically have one for the shooter and one for the intake if you're a double catapult, one more for an angle adjuster if you’re a puncher. That leaves two motors to play with for a double catapult and one for a puncher. Now I really like that over head cap scorer system that’s going around right now, because of how little resources it takes to build. That’s what I believe the meta will be . Specialized in one thing, but still have tha capabilities of the other, 929U is a good example of this.
