We saw 1029 at a specific, unnamed invitational this year. We are not completely sure the math was done correctly. To be honest, there have been MANY errors in the point totals for Mission this year just for our teams.

That's going to be really tough to beat.... Well, is Japan going to be at Nats?

so what place would you expect 750 to get?
Sine functions are quite odd, to be honest.

At what level and what state? There is really no way to know.

Indiana Mission Possible State Champions had a 1040, give or take a few points because we didn't remember the exact size.

My friend had 5 ETS, flawless -- consistent each time, with 5 lifting mechanisms (my state didn't allow the new rule clarifications... they don't abide the National FAQ anymore). Everything was solid and lasted 30 seconds or so because he didn't add the timing mechanism. His device was 20x30x40. I think this scores around 930? But he's not going to national this year :/

I cannot believe he built such a machine... Such a shame the competition cannot see the machine due to 2 points loss at states lol.

I agree that it's unfortunate the national tournament doesn't get to see some very competitive devices.

Our device at 3 planned ETS (only 1 working), was about 20x20x20, lasted for about 60 seconds (ideal time was 75 seconds), and placed third in the state. Compare that with our regional device, which had 5 planned ETS (only 1 working), also around 20x20x20, not sure how long it lasted, and placed fourth at regionals. This event seems easy at first (and it kind of was for us if you forget the frustration), but seems like it's still rather difficult for most teams to get many working ETS.

I had 5 ETS, all of them working. They all lifted a golf ball, was 26x26x29 and ran for around 40 seconds. This got me a score of 926. If we went to state ( I went down as a volunteer and ran mine separately) it would have been third.

What do you all think will be the winning score at Nationals, assuming they run a 90 seconds?

It's probably around 1,100. That would be a box with all 6 ETS, 90s, 6 golf balls, and a box size of 25x27x27, which I haven't seen smaller than.

Some of the best scores have been around 1,000.

The device I created got a 1040 at State. This was with all 6 energy transfers and a box size of (28 x 29.5 x27.5). Even though my partner and I won the event at state, we still expect higher scores at nationals. I think it will come down to how many golf balls a team can score. The bonus energy transfers are the easy part. Putting extra golf balls in, will be a challenge.
