    While some might say "Holy necro Batman", I think this is probably a good thread to necro given the Festival is set to return tomorrow. Assuming the catapult is still there, and still behaves the same, I think a lot of people might be perusing this thread again.

    As to whether 5PG will have changed the forumla, I guess we'll see tomorrow.

    a good guess is shooting a safe shot with moderate strength/angle.

    No, that would be too reasonable. What would we be going to complain about then?

    I would rather they add some new maps, and delete some unreasonable layout before.

    I'm pretty sure the layout is randomly generated each game.

    Yes as far as i noticed you keep the whole set up for the whole game, it reset only after you spent your shots.

    I'd rather Joust got fixed back to the way it initially worked. We might also get somethig brand new . If netiher of the mentioned happens, I'll be once again dumping all my tickets into the Vortex throughout the festival .

    I'm now using a slightly modified version of lobewow's chart. Specifically, I replaced the bottom two entries with one's better suited to avoiding tall towers near the start...

    power-angle-wind
    58-35 - strong headwind
    53-35 - headwind
    48-35 - weak headwind
    44-35 - breeze
    40-35 - weak tailwind
    29-40 - tailwind
    25-40 - strong tailwind

    That modified chart has been working exceptionally well for me. There's still nothing you can do about atrocious layouts with the 25 and 20 hiding with tall towers in front and small towers behind. But this chart will help with a tall tower near the beginning that most shots clear, but which the tailwinds have trouble with.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Another success and TY for the tips. I had to adjust 2 power down for my crummy layout but it helped greatly!

    Pretty sure Breeze is off by one. It should be 44-35 instead of 45-35. I've adjusted it on my personal chart that I keep handy.

    I edited it into my earlier post.

    This worked for me but for some reason it seemed to change in midair when I was nearing max points on some but the rest still worked. Maybe I hadn't hit that one yet and thought I had but and the calculation was off a bit?

    No clue what "issue" there was with catapult.

    I've been using those numbers all festival long, including within the last 24 hours. They still work just fine.
