Hi, Billy here from 50239A, the “blue ballers.” I’ve worked with a few others since the game release to figure out optimal auton strats, and we’ve figured out the ideal route for a single robot.
Starting on the far side of this image on the blue side, the first move would be to pick up your preload, the ball in next to the goal, and the lower blue ball in the goal. Then rush the central goal, and drop all three balls in it. From what we can tell it is physically impossible to descore the central tower, as the 4 posts revent a ball from being pushed out the bottom. In addition, if you control the central tower you control most of the field, blue balling the other team.
The main downside to this strat is that you potentially sacrifice the auton, as you cant get the six points from your home row. However, the benefit of controlling the central tower far outweigh this, so long as you have the scoring capacity necessary to capitalize.
Time permitting, you could also take the blue ballon the other side of the central tower (marked ‘2’), and place it in the far middle tower (marked ‘3’), while descoring the lowest red ball. This would mean that while you sacrifice your home row in auton, you make up for it with the middle row, meaning that you would most likely win autuon. However, this is most likely only possible if you are allied with another robot with a complimenting auton, as without very carful optimization I feel that the time does not allow for this specific strat. Thank you to Andrew from 977Z, and 5150 for working with me for this auton.
