Does anyone know what the current record is for the final strength of the tower at the end of a match? If you don’t know, what is the lowest you’ve seen the tower? I’m just curious, as I have not seen every match of every event.
The lowest I’ve seen happened on Saturday at the Colorado Regional.
I would bet the game designers didn’t think teams would be scoring so many boulders in a single match. This is reminiscent of the game “Missile Command,” which could only show the last 6 digits of a score - so if you had a score of 2,650,000 you’d only see a score of 650,000.
They actually clearly state that they may do this. Per 3.1.4 Blue Box:
“As the season progresses, TOWERS may become fortified to increase
their starting STRENGTH. While the starting STRENGTH of a TOWER
will not change between weeks of Regional or District Competition
play, the starting STRENGTH of a TOWER may be changed for District
Championship and/or FIRST Championship play. Teams will be notified
of changes in the starting STRENGTH of a TOWER no later than the
scheduled Team Update prior to the date of the event.”
Very close, and very useful. I was really interested in the percentage of matches, by week that had been fully weakened and in theory would be ready to be captured:
x<0 2.65% 5.51% 9.15% 16.65%
Now to find out percentage of actual captures…
Also, is this data per alliance or per match. It looks to be per alliance.
