Re: Potions and Poisons B

Hi, My state tournament is next week, and I was wondering to what extent ESs tend to test participants on conductivity testing. I know it's in the rulebook, but I haven't heard of anyone who got tested on it. I'd also like to know how to do that, so it'd be great if anyone could give me an explanat...

Re: Need guidance to prepare for the 2020 school tryouts

I would start by eliminating half of the events that you definitely don't want to do and slowly chip off the other events that are either covered by strong people or you lose interest in. I started this season with 13 events I wanted to try out for and now it's down to 6.

Re: How does your state do awards?

Invites in HI are top 3 for events, regardless of school. No team trophies. Same with regionals, except two teams from the same school can get trophies but get one team at states (I heard at other regionals only one team from each school gets a trophy so I guess some communication errors went down)...

Re: Codebusters C

You might as well just memorize a formula for the inverse matrix https://i.imgur.com/RUdPyQP.jpg One of the tables provided in most tests is the modulo inverso table which goes something like: 1 3 5 7 9 11 15 17 19 21 23 25 1 9 21 15 3 19 7 23 11 5 17 25 (they're supposed to line up) Instead of usi...

Mouse = Pikachu Candy = out of Rare candies Pikachu the mod? Pokemon was also mentioned in the previous clue for how the kill went, so that's something. So Kilauea is a volcano on the biggest of the Hawaiian islands called Hawaii, but of course, I recognize this as a Hawaii boi. Maybe referring to ...

Re: Way Too Early Predictions

Reasons why HI should get the bid: 1) we have like 8 islands man we should get 1 bid per island. rhode island is just 1 island but they have 1 bid just like us 2) we're the 50th state. delaware was the 1st and has the same amount of bids as us. using the format the delaware has established, (state ...

Re: Codebusters C

So quick questions. Around how many questions are there on a code busters test at the various levels (regionals, state, nationals)? Also I know I depends on the type of cipher, but what is a good average time per cipher? You can expect ideally 15 questions per test, and a good solve time ranges fro...

Re: Untouchable Events

Fermi and Chem Lab are definitely untouchables. I personally despise anything physics-related and builds.
