Role of the Analyst
« on: March 09, 2011, 09:07:14 AM »

I think its clear that many teams may have overestimated the role of the analyst as a "lead coach".  From FLR it seems that its better to have 2 really strong feeders, and have the 3rd take on the role of the analyst.

What I saw at FLR that seemed a very intelligent use of the analyst that we may have missed is that the winning alliance (and I think the second place as well), used the analyst to shout out the time remaining as well as the real time scores to each of the coaches.  I saw 1518's analyst doing this constantly to each of the 3 teams on their alliance.

Some additional discussion (and similar strategies to the FLR winners) here:
