We weren’t all expecting to qualify for provincials, but when we did, we went anyways. However we made it suddenly didn’t matter nearly as much as it should’ve, and our rookie team hit the provincials. As it happened, our robot wasn’t too happy about our headfirst dive. It showed its discontent by dropping drive train components during a match. This left a very very bad impression of us with the other teams, even though we fixed the issue ASAP. The issue of our robot’s breakdown bothered other teams greatly and discouraged other teams from selecting us for alliance members (we weren’t in a position to pick), culminating in the alliance selections, when we weren’t picked by anyone.
