VEX VIA Match Data Inquiry

In previous seasons, starting with Turning Point, specific data from matches were able to be viewed in VEX VIA. This can be seen in the photo below.

This match data was helpful for my team as we were able to strategize against our opponents by swing what color cubes they tended to favor. We were disheartened when we saw this data was not available for Change Up matches (as seen by the gif below). We would’ve liked to use this data in our scouting sheets to see which teams were the best in our region (esp helpful for teams we didn’t play against).

My question is: will the ability to view this match data return for Tipping Point? I think it will be useful as teams could see if their opponents are adept at balancing and scoring rings. This will be increasingly helpful for teams in larger regions where they won’t go to every competition (and where not every competition will be live-streamed).

Bumping this thread again because I have not gotten an answer. @Dave_Flowerday @Mike_Soukup

During RECF Summit there was discussion about “extended scoring” that is a per event decision in TM (have not looked at TM recently since my main computer is a Mac running Big Sur - hopefully that will resolved).

Now the question is will this extended scoring appear on VEX Via if the event has extended scoring and will it be hidden if the event chooses not to enable it?

Great to know. I wonder what data will be recorded, and when will it be available to enable to tournaments. I hope that this will become commonplace for EPs to enable (as long as it’s not that taxing or tedious to do) this season!

With mobile scoring not too much extra burden. But if you are entering scores by hand through TM, it might slow down operations, depending on how many people are operating TM.

My understanding, at least as-of last year, was that the VRC’s preferred data sharing API is thru Robot Events . Unless they plan to update this API, I don’t think season-specific point breakdowns of matches will be available, though I would be thrilled to be wrong about this. I agree this is valuable information, especially for preparing for Signature Events and Worlds where teams may not have direct exposure to their competitors.
