The results are out. We have finally caught up with Nemesis. Anything can happen before the completion of the Tessellation. but this is a promising start for 2020! Hopefully we will learn the outcomes of winning and losing soon, too.
The Resistance gained 3 points for retrieving the Aurora live drop.
The Prediction for Dalby Station from Enlightened Discoverer Bihotz was logged, but left out in the transmission by accident. Though it did not affect the result, the Tethered Hand sends their deepest apologies for such negligence.

Nice to see that we've prevented Nemesis from gaining for the past three rounds. Looks like we've all got a good handle on the Tessellation's pattern, so far.
Thank you so much for updating us on the Tesselation.
I've noticed that for some of the Tessera, our Enlightened predictions were not listed in the video. I would like to kindly list our predictions in the videos, even if our predictions are incorrect.
For example, for Dalby Station:
I posted the first prediction (which was later found to be incorrect), and my teammates posted the same prediction as me afterwards. My prediction is posted as verified on this thread:
Yes, I was wrong. But I'd rather see myself and my team marked as wrong than to include no ENL prediction at all. I love the Tesselation, and I love encouraging ENL agents to join in helping us defeat Nemesis. Omitting the ENL prediction gives the incorrect perception that our team did not submit any prediction, which hinders me in my efforts to encourage ENL involvement in the Tesselation. It gives the false perception that we are not trying, which can discourage some ENL agents from participating in the event at all.
Please consider posting all verified predictions, including incorrect ones, from both teams in future Tesselation videos. Let's work together to increase participation in a puzzle that I (and many others in both factions) love.
Eskerrik asko! (Thank you!)
This has been the case since the beginning. The faction who earns First Discoverer status on a particular Tessera first is the faction who's prediction is shown first in the placement, regardless of order predictions are made in.
I can understand this might cause some confusion, but as it has been like this since the beginning, where Enlightened faction has had more first-faction Discoverers, you might not have noticed.
In the end an order has to be chosen on the placement of the Tessera, resulting in that some placements are not being shown.
Its unavoidable, unless you deliberately choose to show the incorrect placement first when one of the faction's placements is correct. But where's the fun in that..
*EDIT: I'm talking about the actual placement happening in the video (the Tethered Hand moving the Tessera), not the scorecard after video.
I agree that both factions predictions should be shown on the scorecard. I also agree that the missing Enlightened prediction should've been part of the video.
But I disagree that the factions whose placement prediction is incorrect and isn't the first faction to discover it should be acted out by the Tethered Hand for the sake of showing it.
Thank you @Bihotz for your forgiving feedback. @ATR0P0S also reported this. I've addressed the importance of participation and effort that the Truthseekers have put into completing this cryptic task of unknown ending. The Tethered Hand will reevaluate their methods. What you said is perfectly valid, and they will include all of the predictions made in the videos moving forward. I've also requested that JanusLaboratorium to also post all the predictions in record of our journey.
Thank you so much, @Truthseeker!
Thank you @HendrikTovenaar for pointing this out. Yes, in the past, it's usually the First Discoverers' faction's predictions will get placed first. If it proves correct, then the other prediction will not be attempted and seen on video. This decision was made to shorten our viewing time.
To address both perspectives, the Tethered Hand planned to do the same for the placement order, but both predictions for a Tessera will be kept and seen in the title cards of the transmission video.
@Truthseeker the tessera "Prime" seems be knocked away from it's original spot. It is appeareing on G05 but I think the tethered hand out it on G04 earlier.
