  • 2013 First Choice Items

    Will be any other items added to the First Choice item list as currently posted on the AndyMark website after the Kickoff?

    If new items are added and a team has already used up all of their credits will there be a way for a team to get any 'must have' game required first choice items after the kickoff?

    As Frank said in his November 2 blog

    - Teams will be able to place multiple orders in FIRST Choice, limited only by how many FIRST Credits they have available and component availability. So, a team could use some of their credits before Kickoff, some after. Keep in mind teams pay for shipping.

    - Some items in FIRST Choice will be ‘blacked out’ until after Kickoff, because they are game-related. You won’t be able to order these items until after Kickoff.

      NOT happy with this "First Choice". Items that we used to get in the KOP are now subject to a "first come" basis. We now have 100 credits and nothing WE NEED is available. Are items limited to a sepcific quanity? [U][U]I would hate it if there are teams out there that received 16 FREE Talon motor controllers when we have to purchase the 2 we need! I understand the arguement that these items are donated, but they were also donated when we received a full KOP. This REALLY needs to be looked at. Hey, at least we get all the plastic tubing we need............

        Hurray, someone who sees the substantial downside to FIRST Choice. There is practically nothing worth having if you don't grab it within the first 24 hours. So obviously teams are grabbing stuff based off pure speculation not engineering necessity...gallingly bad practice. What are we teaching the kids here...be greedy grab the best stuff before anyone else gets a chance...use it for trade fodder or what ever. This system promotes greed and cynicism not gracious professionalism.
