I’d assume them being like simple machines as I recall from Division B few years ago?

I expect a complete remodel of the actions list, maybe going back to lifting up ping pong balls or something similar.

If they use the same method as this year, allowing competitors to choose from a list of tasks, you can look at rules or forums from 2011 or 2010. These can give an idea of tasks that may be chosen. Some similar tasks are often repeated, so you could tinker with those tasks if you want to get a head start. They could also use the method of 2014 and 2015: allowing competitors to choose different energy transfer types. These rules and forums are the best resources you can get right now.

I would bet against it, since (at least going back to 2010) simple machines have not been exclusively used in Division C. However, I'm pretty sure that some simple machines will be used next year, so it doesn't hurt to research these Division B rules.

My impression is that they will not return to this particular approach, as it was difficult to implement and score, generating numerous appeals.

Also, I thought that they kept the style of the event constant for both years of the style - we might see energy transfers come back, but probably for a full 2-year rotation in the future.

The 2018 Tasks wiki page could use a little bit of work - in particular, some details on how the various tasks tended to be accomplished would be nice.
