    In preparation for the main WCG Challenge for Clean Energy Project 2, which takes place in October, TPU's WCG team is kicking off a CEP2 "Warm Up" Challenge (9/19-9/22) with an awesome Game Giveaway. All TPU MEMBERS are encouraged to join up and donate some CPU cycles in lending a hand to Science and humanity, which also qualifies you for a chance to win an awesome game :roll:

    Please check out the main Warm Up Challenge thread where more information and details are laid out and where you will find knowledgeable members who are happy to assist! :respect:

    We have some awesome games up for grabs!
    And as a GRAND PRIZE.... Batman Arkham Origins (Norton/manofthem split ;))!
    All are Steam games, either gifts or keys


    The Deal and How To Enter: We have several games to enter for, and we have 1 Grand Prize! Please enter 1 of the game selections AND everyone will be automatically entered for the Grand Prize, Batman Arkham Origins (pre-order)! :D.

    So, everyone who posts for a game is automatically entered for Batman. If for any reason you don't want Batman, simply say so :p. If you don't want any of the games but only want to enter for Batman, simply post accordingly.

    Requirements: Must be an active TPU WCG member with results returned by Sunday, 9/22/13, which is when the challenge ends :)

    Closing Time: Closing time will be on Sunday, Sep 22, 2013

    Random Drawing: Drawings will be done randomly, as outlined in the following spoiler below ;)

    To ensure everyone gets a fair shake and to minimize any potential conflict of interest while maintaining the highest level of transparency- I have drafted a new way to draw winners. The system uses (3) members and works as follows:

    The system makes sure that there is no bias or other favoritism at play when winners are drawn. Winners are drawn based on a random number instead of usernames- where a possibility exists to redraw if that person doesn’t like who won, draw a friend, draw themselves, pass on new members, or skip doing a random drawing all together.

    My hope is that this will alleviate any concerns about drawings and their legitimacy. If it works smoothly, I would like to see this become the new standard when conducting giveaways that have prizes donated by the community.

    If there are any questions about this system, drop me a PM.


    On behalf of the WCG team, we like to invite all TPU members to join our team and have some fun with us! We'd also like to thank all the team members who have been working hard crunching away, while continuing to expand their crunching farms wherever possible!

    TPU's WCG team is an exciting thing to be a part of, to be associated with terrific people who are generous enough to contribute their computers and resources for the greater good of Science and mankind. Come Join Our Team! :toast: :toast: :toast:

    Is there going to be a pole to pick which game you want to enter for or do you just post which one in this thread? If it's enter in thread I am in for Sniper Elite Zombie army.

    Since I am going to draw prizes for the World CEP2 Challenge, I think I will use that system for the Team Prizes (and the TPU member prizes as well, if I will be responsible for that).

    I think it would be easy enough to just post what game you'd like to enter for, as you did. That way, if you need/want to change your option, you can just edit your post.

    If anything changes, I'll edit and post the changes.

    Also, everyone who posts for a game is automatically entered for Batman. If for any reason you don't want Batman, silly say so :p. If you don't want any of the games but only want Batman, simply post accordingly.

    Thanks guys :respect:

    Ok, don't burn the rest. But let me make this clear, in case anyone was wondering.

    I want FEZ.

    BTW, I am entering for the HIB 9 or RAGE. I have not much interest in Batman, actually (if I "get" it I could put it in he TPU prize pool of the CEP2 challenge, or you could redraw).

    Right! Thanks.

    In that case, first I'll "Rage", and then I'll go "Batty"...

    Fingers crossed. :cool:
