    Based on our historical numbers, why haven't we already crushed the Czech team? I don't understand. We produce more than twice the results per day that they do.

    It's just a matter of time buddy! They've been cruchin longer than our team so I think if we keep up our present phase then taking their spot would be a reality just around the corner!:toast::D

    Way to go! 3rd place is phenomenal! :toast:
    As for competing with the Czech National Team, also remember that their points average is over five years. Their current RAC (Free-DC points) is 423,315, which translates to 2,963,205 (I think) in WCG points. Given the fact that we were averaging 2 million a day for the first few weeks of the challenge, that probably explains the point difference.

    Good point. But they still put out about 3.2 million daily, not by average but I checked their daily #'s a few days like a week ago. Can't check now because they are updating, but if that's the case they are still outproducing us.

    Well, now that the CC is over, I'm just giving it a few more days so our #'s stabilize and I'll sign us up for a few more challengers. :toast:

    Yeah, that's about the time I'm going to wait. :) I know a few peeps still need some time to switch.

    Okay guys, been a while since we have participated in a Challenge. We had the CC and then I was waiting for our #'s to stable out. So this one caught my eye because the scoring system is different so I said "why not", and signed us up. Let's show them what TPU is made off. :) :toast:

    Click on the link and look, it's some percentage instead of points.

    Looks like it's an increase in run time. If you look at the "what's this" link, it says
    I already run 24/7 except for the rigs I happen to be on at any given time so I don't see my percentage run time increasing at all.

    You make a good point Twilyth. I would think that in order to show the largest increase in percentage over the term of the challenge a team would need to recruit new crunchers as the challenge continues.

    As with the last challenge, we recruited several of our brothers in folding, as we got recruited for the chimp challenge in F@H. That is the only way that I see our team increasing the percentage from the start to the finish.

    Any other ideas?

    Well, we can certainly do that. Most of us probably have all our available crunchers crunching, but maybe if we could convince a friend or family member to crunch for the duration of the challenge, that could boost our run time. Just an idea. :)

    So maybe I should wait and switch my i7 970's over from folding after the contest starts...

    i guess that's a good idea, I'll see if I can get the 2nd rig going as well, but need a damn power strip and I'm broke. :(
