Belated Pattern of the Year 2018

Postby Entity Valkyrie » November 25th, 2018, 2:01 am

77topaz, can you take over? I enter the p49 and p57 bumper loops seen on the wiki.

When will the competition start?
p49 bumper loop
p57 bumper loop

EDIT: maybe the new LWSS, MWSS and HWSS periods, if the other gun users agree.

"Belated"?
It's still 1 month 6 days until the year is over!
Notice how the PoTY 2017 took place in 2018

Indeed, the competition shouldn't start until the year is over, because new discoveries could still be made in the last few weeks of the year (a notable example being the two-engine Cordership, which was discovered on 31 December 2017) and even then it wouldn't be belated - that's when a competition is held more than a year later.
