Regional Postmortem By Ethan, Caitlin, Austin, Jayesh, Omar, Darshan, Max, and Tycho

Task: Analyse what we did right and wrong at regionals

Scouting:

Good

  • Detailed scouting sheets
  • Had good inter-team dynamic
  • Organized
  • Pre-scouted

Bad

  • Not scouting matches
  • Didn't record matches
  • Scouting sheet on one computer
  • Only one scouting team

Notes: While we did well with scouting, it could have gone off much better. We made some mistakes by accidentally scouting teams in the other division and not watching matches when we should have.

Presentation:

Good

  • Eventually got into a groove
  • 🔥🔥Darshan's sick beats🔥🔥
  • Emphasized MXP
  • We were entertaining

Bad

  • Messed up the intro
  • Not about past achievements
  • Transition timing
  • Only one scouting team

Notes: We need to work on the group dynamic and enthusiasm a bit more. As well, we're going to stick Darshan under the cart so he can pop out with those 🔥🔥sick beats🔥🔥.
