wait but how does how can there be 6 builds (MTV, Mission Possible, Gravity Vehicle, and Robot Arm and assuming Boomilever and Wright Stuff/ELG stay)?
Mission might be div B (rip, simple machines?)
Simple Machines should be fine I think for Division B. I really doubt that both Compound Machines and Simple Machines would be Division C events. Also, Simple/Compound Machines I think counts as a physics event rather than a build event, since Unome said that they are replacing Thermodynamics (whereas Mission Possible is a build event).
Lol i meant like simple machines in Mission (Div C mission is chemical reactions, div B was simple machines)

Expected changes:
- A&P returns to whatever systems it had in 2016
Does anybody know why A&P stopped doing random systems and instead are using a four-year system?

I believe that they have been trying to make every event rotation much more organized in recent years. I'm not entirely sure of the reason, but it's not unique to A&P.

Is there any chance Ornithology might change to a binder event?

It probably will be considering how Invasive, Ento, and Herpe were

The yearly systems typically relate to each other in some way rather than the haphazard grouping seen in previous years. It also prevents the possibility of the same system being tested multiple years in a row (*cough cough integumentary 2014-2016*)

Under the old format, only one system would be replaced each year, so each system would get 2 years of run in B division and 3 years of run in C division. They changed it so every system is replaced each year around the same time that B division went from two systems to three.
