i just turned mine in at -14. i know i could have gotten to atleast -16, maybe lower, but i'm sick of these levels

On displacement i had -9, and i'm pretty sure you can get -10 but no lower. i just needed to shave off a few ticks, but i was to lazy, and i just have a feeling its going to cost me an ipod. i had champ, water only, and hands off. i used 2 water rods

On stuck i had -4. I want to say nobody is going to go lower than that, but there are so many possibilities, i cant be sure. i used 5 wood rods and got champ. i have no regrets on this level, i know i cant tweak it any lower

On be a champ i got -2. I used 6 water rods. i pretty much feel the same about this level, going any lower doesnt seem possible, but someone may come up with a creative way to do it either with less rods or get hands off

On gateway i got -9. i did it rodless with 8 blue wheels. I acutally never came up with a solution using rods. someone may get -11 by taking out a ball, but i'm doubting it. they would have had to use a completly different approach on lining up most of the balls than me.

And then there is canyon. i got +10. i know for sure that i could have got to at least 9 by lowering it to 366 ticks, but it is such a frustrating level, in that it is really 2 levels in one. tweaking the top part any messes with the bottom part. I ended up using 3 rods on the top part, i have done it with 2 rods but it was way to slow (but i do think it could have been tweaked to be as fast as my 3 rod design). i used 5 rods on the bottom, i dont think you can use less than that but i bet i could have lost a point by making it faster.

well thats my opinion. i'm just about 100 percent sure somebody will get -16, and if i put a few more hours into it i would have gotten it. but my estimate is the best score will be -19. and i will place from 11-20 and enjoying my zune :)

"On Gate Keeper I did rodless with 8 blue wheels. [sic]" -
I tried for hours to find a rodless solution for Gate Keeper but gave up thinking it was impossible. When submissions close in 1hr 35min, can you post a link to your contraption?

If all of your scores are true then this statement makes me feel good about myself...I got did better than you on stuck.....BTW you blew me out of the water overall.

I may just be an idiot but could someone enlighten me on how gatekeeper is remotely possible rodless.

my best level was ba a champ at -5
three blue rods. 217 ticks
My total was -7 though so I won't likely win anything. But this competition was allot of fun so lets see some of these sick designs.

Hey Fate, make sure you're typing in "?designId" rather than "?designid". The CAPS makes a difference.

same. This thread brings back good memories tho :)

I remember the "negative score is not possible" vs. "yes it is" had good fun with this because I had a -2 score :D
....good times.

I am going to lock this topic for the useless bump. If you disagree with my decision to lock this, please make a post here with your reason(s) why the thread should not be locked.
