oh I thought deodorant was made using science but I guess that shows what I know.
Every year in VEX, there are 10,000 teams that lost except for only 2 teams
Not necessarily. Sometimes a regional champion just isnt given a spot at worlds. This happened in starstruck to 8512D iirc.
I think u have the wrong team. That team didn’t win any awards in SS and only competed in 2 tournaments
So if we can agree that the “pooper” area is the butt of the snailbots… then what are the intakes?
the antennae are the intakes
Actually, the radio’s more of the antennae, but in a snail-sense, yes. You are correct.
antennae? or eye stalks?
i guess it would be the lower tentacles
dont yall ever leave robotics and do a sport like swim and then solve the robotics problem while swimming?
and then your not able to write down what to do because your wet and have no paper
I mean I do when I’m out running, but then I am a couple miles away from where I have pen and paper.
Lol, same. Or when you’re in the car and you be like, hey that’s a good idea, and never think of it again.
Or when you think of it while welding and then mess up your bead.
or when you remember the problem, the position/place you were in when you had the answer, the path you took to get to that answer
but can’t possibly remember the answer
and so all you can say is “I had the answer at some point”
Is the “random” alliance selection for qualifiers truly random or do event managers run it multiple times to get good outcomes for the home team?
Props for thinking like a seasoned security researcher, but I don’t think it is easy to “find” a schedule that will be sure to benefit multiple home teams.
Double elimination bracket is still the best way to find the true champions and finalists.
I think 7177X is talking about tournament organizers generating qualification schedules multiple times to benefit teams from their organization. It is most likely uncommon, but there is no way to know if the schedule is truly random with the current system. A solution to this could be RobotEvents giving a hash to official tournaments that always gives a certain output, so generating a schedule multiple times will always give the same random schedule. Then again, this is most likely unnecessary since the amount of tournament organizers that do this is in the minority, but would give peace of mind to the paranoid competitors.
As someone who has had to go against good teams with an alliance robot that did absolutley nothing at my local comp, no
At our states tournament we had the tournament schedule done in front of all the coaches due some sketchy stuff that had been happening with the team hosting.
Maybe vex made the v5 ports defective knowing full well how poorly designed they were in order to drive sales forward and make extra cash?
