Car Nack Predicts 12-2

Car Nack Predicts 12-2

There will be a number of matches where an alliance will receive more points from penalties than scored field goal points.

Car Nack has spoken.

Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

O Great and Wise Car Nack...

'Ya think?

Given the new foul structure this year compared to penalties in the past, this does not shock me on the regional/district level (especially in qualification matches). I would expect more, however, of the Championship and IRI.

Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

I would predict that during qualifications at a regional that an alliance will win a match without scoring any points.

Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

This seems obvious, and is one of the things troubling me in this game. As we work out alliance strategies for qualification matches it's been frequently suggested to put our least capable scorer in a defensive role. If they are also poor drivers then they are almost better off sitting still than risking penalties. It might be good to give your alliance mates a color coded floor print to denote areas in which it is safe to engage the opponent, versus areas where you might be baited into a penalty. One bad alliance member can sabatoge an alliance.

As they say in the medical community, "Primum non nocere."

Perhaps in a new thread we should list things a toaster on wheels can do to help an alliance without risking penalties.

Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

Seems like a reasonable prediction. It would make some of the matches more interesting though. Racking up points from fouls would look better on the scoreboard than a 0-0 tie.

Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

I have to go with Car Nack on this one...

...and I might even try to predict which penalty accounts for most of the points. [G28]--it'll be far too easy to collect those fouls, and my guess is that it'll be as common as 2008's <G22> penalty (line crossing).

Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

I agree with Indy Sam: Duhhh.

Sorry, but this prediction is not all that challenging, you have to step it up more.

2010 was the worst year that I remember. In week 1 the few balls that teams scored would get negated by the penalties from balls rolling underneath the robots.

I would go as far to say that there will be matches in which the only points given are penalties, particularly Week 1 qualification matches.

Re: Car Nack Predicts 12-2

This seems likely to me, but it's too bad... It's not that hard to avoid penalties, if you're interested in avoiding penalties!

Yeah, I definitely agree with both you and Car Nack... Perhaps not quite as a G22, but still, these'll be called a lot, I think!
