EVGA is in division 2
 
New season has started and along with it new rules.

The teams selected for the FB are divided into three divisions of 25 teams. The distribution of teams depends on the number of active members (RAC> 100) on each project.
Previously league assignments were based on RAC in November, now there is the factor of active members, this has demoted us to league 3, though I see this demotion as compliment being as we won league 2 last year with so few active members.

Also this year, in addition to the usual FB scoring (called marathons now) there will be a sprint discipline.

Marathons : each project is considered as a "Grand-Prix". The 10 best teams on each project get a fixed number of FB points.

Sprint : 20 events of 3-days throughout the year, according to the schedule of the Formula 1 championship. Each sprint will involve only one project. The chosen project will only be known 24 hours before the start of the sprint. The top 10 teams on each sprint are given a fixed number of FB points

    I like the sprint!
    Thanks for the update. We need to recruit more people to maintain a RAC > 100     Not a hard task.
     
    Thanks bill1024

    So what is the strategy for us? Start recruiting people?
     
    I am only signed up for about 5 projects, would it be best to sign up to all of them now?
    or sign up when announced before the challenge?

    3/23 - 3/26 is a sprint project TBA.
    Does every one want to try to do these sprint projects this year?
    Seems like a good amount of us enjoy doing challenges. And there are plenty out there to do.
    We do not have to do the long ones unless it is a project that a lot of us like to do anyway.

    Maybe we can tie some of them into our POTM Program.

    Sounds like a plan, if they are only 3 days long, the POTM can pick 2 maybe.
    We'll see how it plays out.

    Don't forget that overlaps with a PrimeGrid challenge series.

    Dang, you're right; guess we will have to see where we stand and how much we can move over if any.
    Those 15 day challenges are killers.

    Hate to be a Debbie downer, but I'll probably only run 1 rig in a 15 day event...........it will pain me to do that but not much in OT to cover the electricity so far.

    We  are glad to have you aboard, no worries.
    One thing about the crunching side, it is do what you want to do, no pressure. Do as much or as little you can.
    It all depends on the weather how much I will run myself. The colder it gets I can use the heat. Not going to run a/c to cool computers.

    i like this idea of tying it into POTM - and i like the sprint over the marathon.
    Just my opinion.
