Congrats to 3310, 5431, and 2687 for getting the triple traversal and new high score at Houston of 160.
Is there a video yet?
There isn’t a YouTube video but you can check the twitch vod. It’s qual 40
I can post one tonight if someone doesn’t first. There were a million cameras down there though so someone probably has a better one
I’ve been playing Tetris in my head in just one dimension. Hindsight is cruel!
Video, or it doesn’t count in my book.
Low quality but it’s all I have
Okay I like it, Picasso!
It’s better video quality then, say 2012 footage!
Thanks for sharing!
Which match. Been working at the event and finally getting to watch matches.
Quart final 1 Match 1
It happened at FIM Jackson too, the first alliance had a triple traversal and still lost.
Yes because they did not clear the balls from their area before the climb. They blocked the blues access to the balls. SO for every 5 seconds that they blocked access they were penalized for it. So Red got the triple climb for 45 points but incurred a 36 Penalty points!

Here’s a view from the stands. It was impressive to see. Bummer it was only worth 9 points. A high bar climb would have been more valuable.
This was actually a second triple traverse, this one was on Mercury before lunch setting a (then) unpenalized high score of 160.
It looked to me like they purposely put all the blue balls there and then climbed early to block them off lol
I will take a look at it. I was watching it live is why I know when it happened. Still quite amazing.
