    Indeed, but remember last time, when we started to lack GPU work and were defeated by SETI@Germany after a long and strong lead.

    Oh, I remember. We certainly can't get complacent ;)
    That's why I have five dozen CPU threads going too ;)

    It is a bummer that SETI@Germany, IBM etc. did not join us, because than there would have been actual competition.

    What makes you think they won't?

    It's an open challenge so Team 2ch, XtremeSystems, S.G., or IBM can always join in late and snatch the lead from us.

    In any case we do our best and try to put our best effort forward as all of the other Teams should be doing as well and WCG is the ultimate winner.

    Everybody here is doing a great job btw! :respect:

    F**k Cancer- Crunch onward!!! :rockout:

    I believe ION did indeed announce it in a few other forums. They could have joined if they wanted to. :)

    Yes, I announced the competition on Anandtech (where they joined with enthusiasm) and XtremeSystems, where my thread was never even replied to :ohwell:

    But we still have quite a few member teams, and I'm excited for the remainder of the event :)

    We should stop taking initiative to start challenges. We speak about prizes, but those are for TPU'ers only. We let others enter, while we know they don't stand a chance. Everyone else probalbly thinks now that we are dicks. :eek:

    I disagree. I invited XS to join, and then they would wipr the floor with us. And even if youdont win, it's still rewarding

    i disagree. The hardware prizes for this comp are open to EVERYONE who participates. Prizes are awarded to individual crunchers, not teams.

    Prize requirement is to crunch 25000 boinc points for TPU and turn in results while the competition lasts so prizes are effectively for TPU team members only.

    yeah, but if they are crunching for other team they can't win prizes. The original argument was that this is a Team challenge but there are no prizes for people from other teams.



    Maybe offering a prize for the top 3 teams would be a better approach, then each team can do with the prize as they wish (maybe doing a giveaway of their own).

    Thing is, the Team Challenge and The Giveaway are two different things. It's a way of also attracting new members. The point is so they join and HOPEFULLY stay.
