Re: International Academic Competitions - 2019-2020 Writer Applications

I believe that we were told that we would receive a response in August. Should we take a lack of reply as rejection or has there simply been a hold up? All application decisions have been made, but we are still confirming a few things before we sent out emails. Should we read the continued lack of ...

Re: 2019 HSNCT discussion

Could I see the conversion stats on Khashoggi, the Presidency, clowns, Danzig, and counterfeiting?

Re: 2019 HSNCT discussion

If I remember correctly, there was a tossup which clued the fact that Canal Street in New York is a center of counterfeiting-- could I see it? I found it amusing.

NY/NJ/CT/PA/DE Discussion '19-20

What teams will do well in the circuit next season? I'll add the poll later, once we have a better idea of what new teams should replace the old teams on it (also, because I didn't really like the vote-for-one-team format). In the meantime, speculate away!

Re: 2018-19 Groger Ranks Awards

Kinda late to this thread, but Akshay Govindan is definitely OP at science. He has insanely high stats at all 3 nationals, and from having practiced with him, he clearly has very deep knowledge in the subject area. Vote him for #2 science player if you haven't already. akshay govindan of ladue a is...

Re: FONS V (Novice+)

Why is there 2.5/2.5 geo? What does "novice+" mean? Why is world and European history only 1/1? Why is there the same amount of social science as world and Euro combined, especially in a "novice+" set? Has any work been taken to avoid answerlines like "frozen lakes (prompt on lakes)," e.g. by hiring...

Re: 2018-19 Groger Ranks Awards

As for my writeup, here are some thoughts presented with no real pretense of organization. I think that Avinash Iyer should have a lock on your top sophomore pick. He has molded himself into the best sophomore generalist in the country, while also remaining a phenomenal history player. Karan Gurazad...

Re: So You Want to Buy a Buzzer System

Where is "The Judge" buzzer system in this? I feel like it's the best choice for a school hoping to make a solid, long-term investment in a buzzer system.

Re: NY/NJ/CT/PA/DE Discussion '18-19

As an interesting subject of discussion, who do you guys think will be the best teams next year? 1. Hunter A (and Andover, if they count as this region) [large gap] [more large gap] 2. everyone else I heard this Dean Ah Now fellow was pretty good— looks like he was top individual scorer at HFT, has...

Re: 2019 NHBB Discord Tournament

Final Results: 1st Place - Sam Brochin 2nd Place - Conor Thompson 3rd Place - Nate Rybner, Aadit Juneja, Alan Wu, Steven Wang And if you are wondering, the finals were a 15 TU packet. Do I plan on ever hosting a Discord Tournament like this? Well yes, but but I'll probably just go for only housewri...

Re: 2019 NHBB Discord Tournament

Ok doing this demonstrates that you've learned nothing from what we said earlier about using questions from the packet archive. The next time more experienced people give you good faith advice, please take it. Ameya has been told in every possible way, by everyone involved, on forums and on discord...

Re: Okemos Spring Invitational, April 20th 2019

Overall, the mods and I had the same consensus that this packet set was the best "fit" for us Okemos kids, meaning that the tossups were of the strengths that the usual Okemos student would have if taken the classes at the school, and such classes would have allowed Okemos students to power more fr...
