The first event at World’s on Saturday was Alliance selection. We didn’t make it into an alliance. Jack did a great job as our mascot for the dance, then we watched the finals and the awards.
One of our main goals at the World Championships was to increase our high score by 200 points. Our previous high score had been 493 points, and our high score at Worlds was 694 points. We accomplished that goal, but it didn’t result in the winning/loss record we had hoped for. Over all, our alliance scored over 500 points in four of our nine matches. The sad part was that we lost 3 of those matches, even though most matches were won with scores below 500 points.
It was fun playing against tough competition and seeing such great robots. We were all inspired by the different robots that all played the same game.
