hmmm.... I was a bit drunk when I wrote that, I think that was my insecurity of B teams killing my A team coming out
Yeah, drinking heavily is the only thing to do in that situation.
Now that's an interesting thing to say... Is there some rumor of this year's mechanics that I haven't heard?
No, just that in my day I never did certain things because I thought no sane safety chair would consider them legal, so why try when surely it will be caught? Yet it turns out that I'd been competing against other teams who were exactly those things and getting an advantage from it. On the one hand, it is fair if the safety chair is equally lax, but on the other hand, thanks to secrecy, one team doesn't know what the other teams are getting away with.
To show SDC's domination, the only pushers in the field who could've made SDC A were SigEp's men's 3 and Apex women's 5. A non-SDC all-star team would be 3 seconds behind in men and 4 in women.
