This was a fun tournament to moderate at. Once again, sorry my team couldn't come, but i enjoyed being there.
The questions were quite good. The announced difficulty adjustment was very clear and resulted in much more enjoyable games in the lower playoff bracket (which i read) then in previous years which resulted in scores like 60-45.
I do think the tossups did get a little harder in the last few rounds... and there are some bonus conversion statistics that seem to indicate a couple really difficult rounds. Round 6's conversion (which just felt much more difficult) was in fact only 15.85ppb, while Round 9 was stuck at 15.40. Every other round was around 18ppb, or higher, which is great.
There were a few tossups where i felt like the easiest clue was not given in the giveaway, which might have resulted in less buzzes. Other than that, compared to previous iterations of a clearly really hard set, this was a good set of questions appropriate for all sorts of high school teams.
