Oh my god, they are going through the roof.
Are they nudts ?

Probably we XSCC and NUDT members got inspiration from the discussions by Dietmar:)

shenhongxin

Thank you?

shenhongxin

Thank you!

sorry for the punctuation error, Ingo.
I don't know why we almost used great head image (me Shannon?)

IngoA

Dear Shen,

oh, I see. You got the same Avatar picture like Dietmar.
Perhaps, randomly generated by the system.

Congratulations to your performance,
very impressive.

You are welcome! May be we see each other for GTOC11 in China. But ESA probably already plans its counter attack.

DietmarW

Congrats to Tsinghua, the third team breaking the error barrier!

DietmarW

Tsinghua, 8 Points to go by still declining bonus. You have to be fast to catch ESA, but you can do it!

Here are the J values without bonus:

ESA 548 / 1.65 = 332
Tsinghua 540 / 1.23 = 439
NUDT 801 / 1.28 = 626

Almost factor 2 between NUDT and ESA!

avatar

DietmarW

No, I will not mention who is 4th without bonus :-)

avatar

DietmarW

Come on Tsinghua, 5 more!

avatar

DietmarW

NUDT 1016, 850 without bonus !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They probably remember what happened at GTOC9 where JPL came from behind in the last hours of the competition.
Who bets now, this will not happen again?

avatar

DietmarW

Huge improvement by ESA, congratulations. Bad news for Tsinghua. But still a large distance to NUDT. Now the first three are in the same order considering J-values without bonus.

avatar

IngoA

So, now we have five teams with mass conquerings.
Congratulations to the team from Bremen!
Ingo.

DietmarW

You forgot NUDT-G301. And all teams with many star solutions which are covered by fast easy solutions with a huge bonus. Who thinks we finally see a few more many star solutions?

avatar

shenhongxin

Dear Dietmar,

Nowadays do you still think "a score > J=1500 is almost impossible at the end" ? do you want to set a new upper limit:)

What a race at the top, right now Tsinghua++ has caught
the leader:

Tsinghua LAD - XINGYI 1663.79563
NUDT&XSCC 1659.11098

This competition is the best advertisement for realtime leaderboard...
Let us see, if the ESA team is strong enough for a final rush.

Ingo.

avatar

IngoA

Wow, what a final!
Tension pure in the top ...

Can someone achieve score 2,000 ?

In fever, Ingo.

avatar

shenhongxin

we must trust JPL problem, very much search room...

avatar

IngoA

do you mean "trust" or "thrust" ;-) ?
Keep on your good work!

avatar

shenhongxin

Yes?I think there is still very very large search space to be explored even for the leader solutions, and it is difficult to predict where the final limit is.
good luck!
