    ***UPDATE***



    For this challenge, we ended in fourth by just a very small margin. Today we actually had more output than Team China so if this challenge went on another week, we might have had a podium finish. Oh well, we gave it what we had. :rockout:

    In this challenge, we have gotten the closest ever to Team China now and continue to secure at least a 2nd place finish. Good job everyone. :respect:

    ***UPDATE***


    Team Ukraine is moving up now into third and putting out some good numbers, we shouldn't have issues but we gotta keep an eye on them. On another note, Team China keeps pulling away now again for first place. We need moar output! :rockout:

    Looks like in this challenge we will have to settle for a 2nd place finish as Team China has pulled away drastically and the challenge is almost over. It was a good run though guys and we did great. Thank you all! :rockout: I'll update again once it's done to have the final #'s.

    OK, sounds good. I stayed away from challenges from any specific projects, as I don't want the team to be "forcing" people to choose one project vs any other. But some general ones are compatible with everyone :)

    At this point, I have sapphire badges in all active projects, so I'll gladly switch to exclusively 1 project for a competition if needed, but many wouldn't like to do so.

    Yeah, I think non specified project competitions are better.

    Yep. At XS, they seem to participate in everything, but I don't think that's the best option for a team of our size.

    Yeah, well it's always fun but, I like to take one or two challenges at a time. Unless you guys think otherwise?

    I think just a few at a time makes sense. That way we aren't overwhelmed or something :p

    Well, I would make an effort to get the 2600k up but there are no 1155 boards to be found anywhere - except for ones that people are still selling despite the recall.
