Probably not a good sign when... · 8:40pm Mar 11th, 2017

Your robot stalls, and proceeds to fail spectacularly in the quarterfinals.

If we lose one more time, then we're out of the game.

Our robot might've shut down 3/4 the way through the match, but we still managed to raise from 8th place to 4th!

FREAKIN' · 9:26pm Mar 11th, 2017

We lost the quarterfinals. We're out of the competition in our region.

At least there's still the Idaho regionals in two weeks.

*crosses fingers*

On the side note, I just realized that one of the teams competing is called "Trixie and the Megabots".

Coincidence?

That moment when... · 6:58pm Mar 11th, 2017

A controller software glitch causes your robot to stall for half the round, and drop your team to 6th place...

Dethroned the 1st place team! · 7:31pm Mar 29th, 2019

Team 971, up until this match, was rank #1.
We, team 4598, weren't even in top 10.

We beat them through strategic defense, with our team focusing entirely on defending against 971.

We went up to 9th place, and 971 dropped from 1st to 8th.

8th.

We are good at defense. :twilightsmile:

EDIT: WE MOVED UP TO 8TH. Team 971 is 7th now, but another top 10 team ahead of us dropped in rank!

What a productive day. · 1:00am Jan 28th, 2018

~8 hours spent in robotics today. My feet are killing me at the moment, but definitely worth it even if I missed both of the alarms I set this morning.

Keep in mind, if you are NOT caught up on the story, there will be spoilers about events. If you're caught up to the most recent chapter, "Rhinestone Eyes, Part 1," then you're safe.

It's that time of the year again. · 2:26am Jan 3rd, 2018

This Saturday marks the kickoff event of the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), and the reveal of this year's game topic.

It's also the beginning of build season.

Prepare for another flood of blogs once the competitions begin.

So the entire robotics team kinda collectively screwed up today. · 11:40pm Dec 6th, 2017

We were literally one part away from finishing the robot for this Saturday's AMES competition, but then what happens?

Turns out nobody bothered to look at the datasheets for the two motors used for the ball launcher, and we ended up pushing 40 amps through a motor designed to start at 1.8 amps , with around 12 amps at tops.

Commence magical purple smoke of death and two fried motors.

It's done. · 4:02am Dec 9th, 2017

It only took a doubled amount of time of working on it as well as lifting heavy metal parts everywhere, but the robot is fixed up and ready for the competition tomorrow.

As for now, my feet hurt. Badly.

Our robot was slammed so hard that the entire top half came off.

We ended up in 8th place out of ~15 teams.
