THE GAME DESCRIPTION
In FIRST Stronghold, alliances of 3 teams try to breach opponents defenses, also known as the outer works. robots must then place 10" "boulders" in either the low goal or shoot them in the high goal of the tower. By getting eight boulders in either of the tower goals, alliances can capture the tower. In the last twenty seconds of the game, robots can challenge the tower by sitting on the ramp surrounding the tower or they can scale the tower for extra points.
At this regional, we ended up in 50th place and were not picked to be in a playoff alliance. Although we did not place very high in the rankings, our team members kept a positive attitude and had lots of fun.
At this regional, our ranking at the end of round robin play was 26th and we were the second pick for the 8th place alliance. We are grateful to teams 1075 and 6110 for choosing us to be a part of their alliance. We played good matches in the playoffs but we eliminated in the quarterfinals.
