removing festival of champions gives us a sense of pride and accomplishment
The intent is to provide teams a sense of pride and accomplishment for being gracious professionals.
As for worlds, we selected initial venues unpon data from past events and other sources made to milestone before the season. Among other things, we’re looking at average costs per team on a yearly basis, and we’ll be making constant adjustments to ensure that teams have world competitions that are inspiring, gracious and of course accessible to all skill levels of teams.
We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on Reddit, our forums and across numerous social media outlets.
Our staff will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update as soon and as often as we can.
It was a fun time. I have to say that I probably wouldn't have attended if I didn't have to be there for something else, anyway, though. The best part was standing on the front steps of FIRST headquarters the day before the event and having Woodie Flowers strike up a conversation with me about how difficult it is to get a good picture of a lemur jumping across the tops of trees in Madagascar.
I was kind of looking forward to North/East trying to even the score with South/West this year, too. Oh well.
Glad to see the FoC go. Would have sucked fessing up that money if we had to do it back in 2015 when we won Worlds.
Ah, same. My team has so many trophies from winning worlds, I feel your struggle.
