I think we may have been #1 for a matter of minutes before teams in Wisconsin got 163 points (great job to them, can’t wait to possibly see the video). Regardless, here is the new #2 alliance score in the world:
As you can see, there is a lot of room for improvement (having an autonomous routine would help us a lot, as would at least five to seven other changes). We only really started the switch to an internal stacker about a month ago. But, for now, this is the highest scoring match that is on YouTube at least… so we have that going for us.
Enjoy! I’m looking forward to trying to pass 160 in a couple of weeks, at our next tournament.
Interesting… I was wondering how they would score so high with so few cones on the 20-point mobile goal at first. Transferring to the stationary goal would do it. I might want to make an automatic way to do that, as well. Thanks for the link!
Here’s the current top 10 in case anyone’s interested:
FVL VEX Experience - VRC High School Only 163
2017-2018 Asia Open VEX Robotics Competition - High School 157
Northern Arizona VRC Qualifier 153
Benson High School VEX Robotics Tournament - High School (In 152
Northeast Wisconsin VEX Robotics Competition In-The-Zone 150
Cybear Test and Tune 150
2017-2018 Asia Open VEX Robotics Competition - Middle School 149
Heritage Christian VRC In the Zone Tournament; Indianapolis, 148
Benson High School VEX Robotics Tournament - High School (In 147
2017-2018 Asia Open VEX Robotics Competition - Middle School 146
(Edit) earlier version had the names shortened too much which hid the fact that a few of those scores were from middle school events (impressive!).
I am the driver (but you didn’t need to know that). Yes, this orientation is far better for picking up cones near the fence, too. Ideally, you should line up the next cone while stacking, so you come down on it and instantly grab it. But, the field perimeter can make that hard. Being able to drive into it is then far easier.
