It's About Time, I can sort of understand, but Bungee?

I really dislike Texas Scio tbh, also because they let teams do troll events like Game On

How did you use gunpowder in It's About Time and Mission Possible?

Interesting, but I think that gunpowder could burn the ping-pong ball, plus it's not really pressurized air

For mission we had this really cool explosion happening.. I guess it's not worth talking about now. With all the rules clarifications flying around Mission just isn't what it used to be.. and for Time we were planning to continually fire an M-134 minigun and just count the number of bullets in the wall after time is up

Wait, you can't use gunpowder?

Our Mission had a Carnot heat engine powered by gunpowder to transfer between thermal and mechanical tons of times. This means we have to remake it???
