Max scoring potential in Destination: Deep Space?

scoring

#1

Just curious as to what would approximately be the maximum scoring possible in one match.


Maximum Points (2019) without Penalties?
#2

154 points by the entire alliance, this is also assuming that the alliance can do the impossible triple level 3 climb.


#3


this is a thread on the max score


#4

139 is our “feasible” max score. This assumes two robots start on level 2 and 1 starts on level one. Both rockets and the cargo ship are completed and 1 robot climbs to level 3 with 2 on level 2.


#5

Until we get some rule clarifications 154 is the “theatrical” max. Not including of course fouls.

I think there is going to be much lower scoring than the past few years. But remember, Pins and and some defensive fouls accrue so if more than 1 robot breaks down while they are both in the opponents side of the field (they shouldn’t be, no more than 1 at a time G9) , you will see scores start to rise VERY quickly. Like when a robot got stuck on the scale and they just kept adding penalty points for the rest of the match.


#6

Keep in mind, every null panel placed reduces the max possible score.


#7

I think most playoffs alliances will opt for cargo in the cargo ship during sandstorm. Even if they roll out, they’re already close to the ship for later scoring. I think the null hatches are a good idea in a quals match where it’s unlikely that approaching the max score is possible or necessary. Otherwise, cargo all the way.
