chalker, could you implement a rule in which if a certain percentage of teams are tiered (let's say, 50%), then the event would be trialed - to prevent unreasonable supervisors from skewing team results too much?

Well someone's salty despite their nationals medal.
It only makes sense to be salty when you win nationals for an event but have that happen to you at an invite. The man who tiered them really likes to tier though, that’s all I can say about that.

I little internal SO politics for you all: I HATE tiering. I've pushed hard to eliminate it where ever possible as I think it unfairly amplifies certain penalties. It you notice, none of the Physics events have tiers, rather only penalties. I was able to get some of the Technology events one year to switch to penalties instead of tiers, but they promptly switched back the following year. That said, some event supervisors just have a 'gotcha' mentality, and regardless of whether its tiers or penalties, they are likely to overuse them instead of applying general rule #5: "Officials are encouraged to apply the least restrictive penalty for rules infractions "

Chalker, can I have Air Trajectory back in the 2020-21 season? I need redemption for forgetting to put the ball in our device, costing us our chance to medal at 2016 nats :cry:

Chalker, would you perchance be willing to help a really small, largely unfunded team by send the 2019-2020 rules for Gravity Vehicle?

I think you're asking the wrong Chalker if you want rules for a tech committee event :P

Chalker can you extend the time between our first meeting and the National Cathedral invitational so we actually have a chance of doing decent on an invitational that isn't pretty much just us VS Urbana?
