I don’t know how to handle this. We recently won tournament champs with a ground-cap-only bot (that can also hit low flags, of course) and our alliance was a flywheel bot. I, the team captain, said that we should probably implement either a system that can put caps on posts or a flywheel/puncher/2bc so that we have a chance at our state competition.
Pros of our bot: really fast, flips caps pretty reliably, can be really good on offense or defense
Cons of our bot: can’t score high flags or posts at all, max points we can score is only 17
My main builder disagreed with me and said that we should keep the robot as is; I see where he’s coming from, as we’ve made it to the finals all three tournaments so far, but I feel as if we should add something so we aren’t completely obliterated at states and can boost our skills scores to hopefully be among the top in our state (32nd at the moment, which isn’t the best at all considering we only scored 12 points). How do I convince him without him getting angry? I’ve been in robotics for four years, and he’s been in it for three.
Edit: I should probably show you what the bot looks like. We’re on the center platform
