Me too
Idk if you saw but black cracked another drum against hemp field too
They hit right on the tab to the end cap and cracked almost identical to the off set tooth drum
I think they were over hardened or not stress relieved after

That stagger toothed drum looked so nice too..
Ohwell, mistakes are always there to be learned from. It could have failed much more catastrophically.
Kind of like when our drum bot spit a tooth through our testing center and put a dent in the chalkboard 30 feet away.

Haha. It made us realize that our safe testing center where we did everything, really wasn't that safe.
Now we have bulletproof glass on one side and double lexan on the other and no one can be behind the wood on the reverse sides.

It was an eye opening experience for sure.

I wanted to fight so many people!
Our adviser didn't tell us we missed our grudge match against fayette, and their adviser didn't even know they won by forfeit because we weren't ready.
I went over to talk to him and he was excited to face us, but they never called us up again.

At the competition I tried to tell as many people about this forum. I don't know if many people ended up caring, but I tried to get more people involved so we can expand the network to be a friendlier place. I love helping people with what I can.

On another note. I expect to see a rise in wedges next year. It is possible that we could see a decline in weaponized robots and an incline in those annoying wedge troll bots.

I respected Kiski though. If it's a good wedge with a good driver, and a good team then I will always respect it. Even if my record against it is 1 win 3 losses.

Kiski plans to return with their wedge being improved upon next year and a weaponized robot.
The wedges that did well will probably return.
I expect propel to try and outdo this years wedge.
Teams that I expect to have a higher chance of converting to a wedge are probably teams that either had too much hassle with their weapon, or could not make an effective weapon.

The usual teams will likely stay weapon though:
Plum
Clairton
Punxsutawney now
West Mifflin, probably with uhmw armor
Hempfield
Admiral Perry
Maybe even the Grim Reaper again, who knows what happened with them.
and the like


I hope to see more help being given to teams that couldn't even enter a match this year or drive. I will try my best, though I will be away for next BotsIQ season, to contact and help teams.
I want to see more GOOD matches next year!!!!

even with the radius it would have failed.

I originally thought the UHMW was a sketchy idea for our armor, but in retrospect, I'm really glad we used it... It really held up to standards, if not far better.. Though it definitely helped we had Jesus driving and didn't give anyone much chance to land a good hit.

I love the uhmw man! It looks classy too.

I didn't get to see so many matches, and I wish we had the first hits of my last match, but I was so busy after we got knocked out of the running and gearboxes disintegrated.
