Yeah, it looks pretty good! I was wrong about several of the mission objectives - most of them are a lot harder then I expected. But I'm glad, it'll provide more room for distinguishment. :)

The challenge looks awesome! My team got together tonight to go over it and check out our new table. We're ready to get started.

I think it is interesting that RCX users need to complete only 2 missions to earn 20 bonus points, while NXT users need to complete 6 missions to earn the 20 bonus points. FLL must think that the NXT is 3 times better.

lol, yeah I noticed that too. For my team's strategy, the NXT is 3 times better (and more), but since we're going for more than 6 missions, hopefully it won't hurt us.

Is anyone else having trouble accessing the forums? I have yet to be able to sign in

Ahhh...no fair! You guys already have your mat & missions, we have to wait at least another week! Hopefully we'll get to go back over to Atlanta even though the 9 hour flight can be a bit tedious!

Did I read it wrong? I think it says that RCX teams have to earn points in 3 missions (not 2) compared to 6 missions for an NXT team.

I'm thinking this bonus might simply penalize rookie teams no matter which robot kit they use, since many rookie teams will be less likely to perform three (or six) missions consistently in competition.

And I agree there must be problems with the forum, I've been unable to get into it either.

You're right. It's 3 missions for the RCX.
