Will water quality have only two years of rotation or three?
I noticed that water quality was in the years 2012, 2013, 2014,
and I was wondering why saltwater was the next topic, because 2012 and 2013
both covered freshwater. I am assuming that the year of 2014 covered saltwater.

What's replacing Density Lab and Sounds of Music right now?
It's highly likely Sounds will move into B to replace Density Lab in 2021. I'm not sure what will be replacing it in C, though some form of Trajectory or Hovercraft seems most likely to me.

I suspect two years, and iirc 2014 covered estuaries or something like that.

This rotation has varied. 2009, 2010, 2011 was Ecology, and as you note 2012-14 was WQ. However, they then moved to a 2 year rotation for Green Generation in 2015-16 and back to Ecology for 17-18.

I see almost no changes being made as boomilever is already hard enough... We might be looking at some sort of bonus though? (idk :?:)

Maybe they’ll do something similar to the second year of towers and make the boomi have to fit through a ring at a certain distance from the wall
