For Autonoums alliances earn bonus points for scoring balls in this mode and for any of their robots that move in to their zones. For each ball scored in a “hot” goal, the Alliance earns additional bonus points. For teleop Alliances must cycle a single ball as many times as possible for the remainder of the match. With the single ball, they try to maximize their points earned by throwing balls over the truss, catching balls launched over the truss, and scoring in the high and low goals on the far side of the field.
Quasar Reveal Video
Our 2917 season was amazing! We attended 3 regionals and the World Championship. For this season the team built all custom gears and gear boxes for the drive train, gear mechanism and the climber. While we underestimate how challenging shooting would be our robot was an amazing gear cycler and fast climber. This robot was tough, it even fell a few times, and never broke! We had such a successful season!
