I'm very excited for it! Build events are difficult to accomodate in mini SO and Satellite SO and this event gives builders a way to participate!

Yeah, I've had some very... scary scores (in a good way.) Is it just me or does the contact width line not really effect your score?

Uhhhh lol scary? In what sense? I've been getting normal scores using last year's dimensions.

There was a bug in the system that was fixed which gave participants scores of 100000 + haha.

I've been getting some very very good scores, which is obviously good for me, but sometimes they're just unrealistic, as in the fact that I've gotten over 12,000 once.

You sure that wasn't a bug? They fixed a bug Friday morning. I've gotten 75000 before lol

I don't actually think it was a bug. I've experienced the bug myself, and this wasn't it. It was a very strange design.
