Predictions

Postby cypressfalls Robert » May 21st, 2010, 5:23 am

Its kind of late for this but still, predict the winner!
-It should just be all bonuses and timed perfectly, though. How many teams on this board have perfect devices?(just to see how many teams could possibly have a tie)

There was a 37.93% chance that I judged you, if you were mission'ing :)
I was the one who apparently picked up a t-shirt instead of a polo :?

There were greater than 11 perfect devices. It's crazy how a few tenths of a second can make the difference between nothing and $120,000.

...I got 8th while being in the 112 second slot for time. (ideal was 111)
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

In my opinion, the rules should require/allow a timer to be attached to the start/end tasks, so that it is automated.
There should also be three backup human timers, and if they are used b/c the timer does not function b/c of the device, then a 20 pt penalty should be instituted.

That way, these mistakes won't happen.

We had a perfect run (111.48 seconds), but as we were about to leave someone in the crowed pointed out that our golf ball was supposedly supposed to be unmodified... which we were not aware of. Therefore we lost 25 points... and a crapload of places. Oh well. Thinking that we had gotten a perfect score for 3 minutes was fun... while it lasted.

First of all, if you aren't one of the Beverly Hillbillies it is predicted not perdicted (just messing with you, I am sure it was a typo) second I predicted that there would be numerous devices with perfect scores and the place would be determined by stopwatch timing. Does anyone actually know how many teams got full points, perhaps the moderator? Does anyone know what the difference between timing for the top 6 places was? I predict that the time difference between the top 2 places was within the human reaction time (0.18 seconds).
