Re: Player Poll 2019

I'm surprised that Rahul Keyal has not gotten more discussion on here. He lead a team to T-7 at ICT, ahead of teams like MSU and Penn, and with a better PPB to boot. I'm bad at remembering categories, but I read for him at both ICT and Nats and he was a force to be reckoned with at both. You should...

I also hear that Natan of Stanford first-clued the composer tossup in Editors 1
It was more of a third-clue buzz.

Re: California Summer Open(s)?

I'd love to play this! I'll be out of town approximately July 7 through July 28, so I would strongly prefer a June or August date.

Re: Why don't we have 1/1 math?

One idea we had was combining religion and myth into a single 1/1 I like this idea. I'd use the resulting extra question to have 1/1 "mathematical sciences" including pure math, math applications, statistics, and CS, and 1/1 "other science" including Earth science, astronomy, engineering, and inter...

Re: ACF Nationals 2019 discussion: Question Content

the absurdity of nationals is discouraging for far more people. Being on a two-person team as you were must make Nats feel even harder and more stressful than it already is. I think the difference in how much a full team can enjoy a tournament relative to a short-handed team probably grows with que...

Re: EFT 2018 - Thanks and General Discussion

I really enjoyed playing this set!
It did seem like the visual art was skewed toward pre-19th century stuff. The Earth science bonuses seemed too easy.
I was impressed with how the score clues in music tossups were well-chosen and clearly described, which is not the case in some tournaments.

Re: Clearinghouse for Random Packet Announcements

My earth science packet "Unaccustomed Earth System Science" is done, at 20 tossups and no bonuses. I'm planning to read it tomorrow (Wednesday, July 25) at 8 PM ET on Discord.

Re: Clearinghouse for Random Packet Announcements

I'm writing a packet entirely on Earth science (some of the questions are equally at home under physical geography). I plan to read it on Discord in a few weeks. I've created a poll to gauge interest; please respond if you'd like to play! https://www.strawpoll.me/16083814

Are there any plans for an online mirror of this set, aside from the playtesting today?
