    By the numbers, we didn't get the win....

    However.... we faced a higher output Team, increased our output by close to 60%, and missed by one half of one percent!!!

    Take a bow Team, you guys did great!!! :respect:

    Now that the challenge has ended....

    We will likely do the main prize drawing on Saturday afternoon and get the Titan drawing started as well. :)

    In the meantime...

    We invite all that have joined up to stick around awhile and continue to help out and for everyone to consider giving the folding Team a hand to thank them for the help they gave us in the challenge ;)

    Thanks again to everyone! :toast:

    He might have a point, the link states the table was updated today, 3 hrs ago:

    I don't know, maybe it's a glitch, and don't want to dispute the great work RIT did for the challenge, I just want to have some hope :p

    The thing is that, apparently, the stats froze on 20/5 even though it says otherwise. Have you contacted WCG about this, Norton?

    They were delayed even getting that 5/20 update done so I'll give them a few days to see if their stats correct this automatically

    Hey Team,

    Spent a few hours this afternoon going over the prize lists, etc.. .

    - The challenge list is drafted and we'll be giving it a final review and start drawing names within the next hour or so

    - The Titan Giveaway list has been drafted and sent to @the54thvoid to have a look and we'll start that thread once that is done

    Stay tuned.... :)
