Chain on Cascade Lift snaps
Hear a bit of a grinding noise, followed by another chain snapping
realize its on our drivetrain (yes we use chain in our drive)
Driver panics, does some weird move + maneuver
wheel pops out of drive train because quality building
driver has mental breakdown
(This all happened in one match)
We were in an ITZ semi-finals match, and we were doing really well when in the last 5 seconds our alliance partner tried to drop a stack of about 15 cones in the 20 point zone, but when they drove over the 10 point bar the robot tipped forward out of the arena resulting in a DQ for our alliance.
At worlds for crossover we were qued up on the field but our radio broke but we didn’t know that we couldn’t fix it so they gave us a clawbot to drive.
Our motors NEVER PTC in a practice match- but they somehow do in real matches.
One of our sister teams made it to the finals 2 times but lost both.
Every competition I went to this season, something major broke on our robot during the 3rd match. First competition, cortex died third match. Another competition, our robot caught on fire during the third match. At states, our lift broke third match. At WPI, the collars on our roller intake became lose and sent rubber bands and spacers all over the field.
My team lost a match due to auton. Our auton scored 6 points while the other team scored 1 but our alliance went over the line. It was tragic.
That’s not true… They shouldn’t have to but there’s no limit in the software.
Having every possible thing go wrong at state consisting of code failure, underpreformiing driver, and terrible alliances.
Please don’t bring that up again lol
Mine’s breaking an axle in half
I saw this thread being revived and I knew someone would bring this up
My team’s robot keeps on falling apart due to shoddy construction. I don’t mean a screw falling off or the occasional shaft collar. I mean the robot splitting in half (No damage to the parts thank God) and the subsequent automatic disassembly of our robot as we make it wiggle and squirm to try to get some movement to no avail, that is how team b does things.
Alexa play depacito.
(Sorry, I had to do it)
Our auton never fully works, no matter how many times it’s tested.
During In the Zone we plugged the partner controller into the field not the actual controller. Good Times.
For those of you who don’t know already, rigged field is a joke in the AZ MS Community as nobody’s auton worked at the AZ MS states.
So we’re in the round of 16 at our last event of the year for us. (I am a coach so I’m watching the drivers getting ready to drive).
Apparently their controllers weren’t working so I was going to try and help them after the match was done.
Turns out the plugged in the partner controller in wrong into one of the other ports which kept us from even connecting to the field.
Jokes on you, cause ours did.
Auton can’t fail if you don’t have one
