Maximum Number of Points
I was wondering if anyone has actually yet taken the time to determine the maximum number of points one alliance could get...
/me should prolly figure it out later if it isn't already done

hmm... not taking into account the QPs, the most Points you can have is when you have all 45 boxes on your side is when you have a stack 22 or 23 high and 23 or 22 boxes on the ground. It would give your side 506 points.

Was talking to rick on my team, A.K.A. Ricksta121, and he said the max score was basically inpossible but he said it was 666. Found that odd.

Blue Stacked: 23 On Ground: 22 On Ramp: 2 23 x 22 + 50 = 556 Red Stacked: 0 On Ground: 0 On Ramp: 2 0 x 0 + 50 = 50 So in total there are 606 points to be had, but the highest a team (alliance) can get is 556. Last edited by AJ Quick : 01042003 at 06:30 PM.

This really sounds impossible 22 boxes in one stack. But than how many you think is possible? 10? 8?

so 606? 
#7




our team got 1158! even more impossible to accomplish though

#8




606 sounds right. But then you need a bot that can put 22 bins ontop of eachother and the opposing aliance has to be dead.
BTW, who else thinks this will be a VERY loud game?

Definately going to be a loud game, horribly. One thing that I noticed all of the engineers were pleased about was the fact of NO MORE BALLS. it seems that they didnt like it when soccar balls came from no where striking them in the head while they were sawing something, lol. Now what happens if team mates start throwing boxes?

Same blue and red scores with this importand adjustment: your opponent's score is multiplied by 2. Therefore, it'd be 556+100 if all 4 bots got on that middle thing.

Oooh, but don't forget the situation where the height of the stack is higher than the actual number of boxes in the stack.
So... 24 stack height x 22 boxes + 50 = 578 points 0 stack x 0 boxes + 50 = 50 points 578 + 50(2) = 678 QPs/EPs

Take one box down and turn the top one sideways: 23X23=529+50=579+100 from other team is 679.

*busts out the calculator* Seriously, I thought of that and tried it. Maybe I'm just calculatorretarded.

All that math's hurting my brain build a robot that can stack 23 of those boxes up, post a picture of it and then you can talk about this... That robot'd surely be stabilitychallenged

#15




Well, if you stack them all up the long way, end to end you could technically account for 12.41 (13) extra boxes!
So: Blue Stacks: 36 On Ground: 22 On Bridge: 50 36 x 22 + 50 = 842 Red Stacks: 0 On Ground: 0 On Bridge: 50 0 x 0 + 50 = 50 50 x 2 = 100 So the total for everything is around 942!
