This is the final score that will determine the BEST Robotics Team Champion for the Global Logistics Challenge. It consists of two parts:

Basic Analytics (Press the 'b' Key to activate and deactivate)

Your Score Through the Aegis is the uncapped score which is potentially the highest value scoring portion of the BEST Robotics Global Logistics Challenge. Regional and National winners will likely be the teams that maximize this metric while collecting as many Bonus Points as possible. Your Score Through the Aegis also referred to as a Distribution Score is a growing (never-shrinking) testament to your hard work, ingenuity, creativity, planning, exploring, problem solving and teamwork. At all times your Score Through the Aegis will be tracked and displayed when you are on the Distribution Plot and you press the 'B' key. This will toggle the scoring analytics and provide the following information:

Distribution Complex (+Total Score) <-- This is the Score Through the Aegis

These top-level metrics allow your team to track when a new Warehousing or Utility Buildings are constructed and become valid structures, or when others get demolished.

Advanced Distribution Scoring (Press the 'v' Key to activate and deactivate)

Legend: (+Age Score) <Age Structures Count> [Age Population Capacity] {Age Average Efficiency} | Timestamp when highest Age Score occurred.

Highpoints (Round 2)

  • Level 8: (+xxx) <xxx> [xxx] {xxx} | Timestamp
  • Level 7: (+xxx) <xxx> [xxx] {xxx} | Timestamp
  • Level 6: (+xxx) <xxx> [xxx] {xxx} | Timestamp
  • Level 5: (+xxx) <xxx> [xxx] {xxx} | Timestamp

Highpoints (Round 1)

  • Level 4: (+Level Score) <xxx> [xxx] {xxx} | Timestamp
  • Level 3: (+Level Score) <xxx> [xxx] {xxx} | Timestamp
  • Level 2: (+Level Score) <xxx> [xxx] {xxx} | Timestamp
  • Level 1: (+Level Score) <xxx> [xxx] {xxx} | Timestamp

Your Score Through the Aegis will be the summation of these 8 individual Age Scores. The first four Age Scores will be received during Round 1 and the final 4 Age Scores will be received during Round 2. Note that the scoring scales by technology age and population density, so teams behind after Phase 1, can make up lots of ground in Phase 2.

The Score Through the Aegis is simple to calculate, but takes many things into account for a holistic picture of the grandiosity of your Logistics Nexus. The Score Through the Aegis combines 1) the Robot Worker Population, 2) the Efficiency, and 3) the Technology Levels of your Distribution Complex. Every time new Robots arrive, the Technology Level Score is calculated for every Technology Level separately and for the Complex as a whole. The summation of all peak Technology Level Scores is the Score Through the Aegis.

Peak Score: For the BEST Leaderboards, the peak score reached at any point in time during the Round will count for each score. So, if you build a large Dirt Warehouse Complex at Level 1 and then demolish all of your Dirt warehouses later to make room, your Peak Technology Level 1 Score will be saved. Similarly, if you don't build a large Dirt, Wood, or other Distribution Complex at a given Technology Level you could always go back later and build up these structures if you wanted to boost your score for that particularly Technology Level.

Pro tip: It pays to invest a bit to build a good Warehouse Complex at each Technology Level, as once you move on to the next level it will generally be better to keep expanding at more advanced levels than to go backwards.
