Fighting mega nuke was awesome
We probably both would have made it farther through the bracket if it never happened haha
I'll post my gopro video of it once I catch up on sleep

Cody, your robot was great this year compared to last year. Your weapon out spun mega nukes and it showed weapon to weapon. Your first battle was great. you landed some great hits. I agree that this fight hurt both teams chances early. The luck of draw on the seeding. I believe every match but uppercut ( it was just a solid bot) could have been different with a different draw. I watched 90 % of day one and 50 % of day two. The competition was good from what i saw online. The people that set up the cameras could have taken a few pointers from your rage in the cage. As a grad from PSU, you had me cheering during your fights.

There's a few things we could have done different and some bounces that could have gone different but it was an awesome fight and I have absolutely no hard feelings about it. I'm pretty sure I even walked away smiling haha
They had TVs with what I'm guessing was the live stream and I wasn't impressed with cameras switching back and forth from the little I tried to watch

We watched my videos last night and they turned out awesome (at least I thought so last night but we had also been drinking...) I'm heading home from State College and might start working in uploading them when I get home

Cody's videos from one, single, lone camera were far superior to the livestream.
I was only angered because EVERY big hit that happened was in a blindspot, and you couldn't tell if a robot got roofed, or slightly lifted because they watched the ground as if it was going to do something...

MEGA NUKE FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What was the result to mega nuke after that weapon to weapon hit? I know you guys had a bent shaft, did it bend the beater too? I only asked cause I noticed it had a bit of a shake to it after the hit that I hadn't noticed before but I also wasn't looking for it either so it might have pre-existed

It broke one of our teeth right on the bolt hole, shaft was ok and bearings weren't any worse then before it happened lol
There was a lot of energy in that hit! Somewhere in there our scorpion xl had somehow/someway reset so we didn't have drive when we hit the ground. We re-calibrated it and the bot was good to go again

Garrett says that it was only a bent shaft to his knowledge, but he didn't exactly take a straight edge to it either.
It is worth noting going into the competition the weapon wasn't balanced and when he went to spin it up in the testing center it started bouncing around so he took a grinder to it for 20 minutes to even it out.

That hit was pretty intense. I enjoyed it.

the shaft was pretty bent they had totake consider of the bot off in order to get the shaft off..... I was kind of surprised that the pulleys stayed onthe weapon

The weapon shaft was bent after huge hit but other than that no real damage was taken and I believe the weapon did not bend either.
