I am making this thread for people to post tipping point match videos and discuss strategies/robot designs used. Here is a video of a scrimmage:
While the robots aren’t very competitive, it does show the importance of guarding and stealing goals. It also shows how easy it is to knock over the center goal. Looking forward to any matches you find!
Its hard to base everything off of one match, but I think it shows how well pushbots and simple single goal only bots can still do early season. that means the bar for a partner to be considered useful in a match is significantly lower than past years, but at the same time the ceiling for what good teams can do appears to be one of the highest yet. Which I think is just fantastic for everyone involved.
In tower takeover or change up, if you had a pushbot for a partner all you could ask them to do was play defense (and chances are, they wouldn’t be able to play very good defense) but this year there’s so much to do that even a simple pushbot can contribute a large amount to their alliances score.
As have taken part in that scrimmage (my team was a pushbot but got knocked out in semi’s)
I will say that pushbots, especially wider ones , are surprisingly effective early season, and can actually move mogos pretty well, with every team in the eliminations having at least one pushbot in the team.
yeah the center goal tipped every single match and was never upright
It’s extremely chaotic and is even more fun to play, definitely my favorite game within these past two, its surprising how close some of the matches were, with the neutral mogos being dragged around in the last 3 seconds of some matches just over the neutral zone line that made the score tip completely in the other teams favor (see what I did there )
