Does anyone have any recommendations for teams to be sure to check out at Worlds? In the past we have tried to go around all the pits and check most teams out but there are so many teams it is hard to really check everyone out. I thought it would be nice to have a list of the “best of the best” that would be worth going out of our way to watch some of their matches.
Even though we have been to Worlds a few times now, our team is admittedly nowhere near the same level as some of the awesome robots we see on these forums. We learn a lot each year at Worlds by watching some of the best robots compete and we don’t want to miss any of the best action!
Can I make a modest suggestion? There are teams from 27 countries coming to VEX Worlds, make a point of stopping by teams that aren’t from your own country. You might make an unexpected friend, and some of those teams bring great goodies to share.
Absolutely, we fully intend to soak in as much as we can. I didn’t mean to make it sound like we only want to see the “best” robots. I just want to make sure we take advantage of the opportunity to see the “best” (along with as much other great stuff as we can)
Check out Team 169! I’ve been mentoring them all year and it’s been great fun! Also QCC2, AURA, SYNC and of course BNS! And I agree with that Rick Tyler said, you never know what cool people you might meet!
Be sure to stop by the Purdue booth as well we will have some cool new hardware out. We will also be looking for feedback from PROS users since all three of the current PROS developers will be present!
definitely check out SYNC in the vexU section - i’ve been working closely with them for this season and they have some awesome stuff lined up. we’ve both done something pretty awesome with our cube intakes, be sure to give that a look! (we’re team 21 in HS)
