EVGA Time zone contest proposal
OK guys new proposal on the books here
Just had a talk with troy8d
current contest format
this will change under inter-team (you fold under your own team number)
prizes are internal for moment - your team captains can talk to us about this
we would be willing to implement inter-team play now if you wish
(you fold for your team ) put we use your EOC to collect stats for the Timezones
so you be fighting your bros/sisters/fellow members from your other timezones
we need to know ASAP
we can delay the contest to get other teams onboard
[H],OCF had indicated some interest too
Ill be posting this on their forums too
if you wish to delay/wait til next year we understand or not wishing to join that's fine
(feeling inter-team contest wreck things ...we understand that too)
so this is up to you guys
your team loses nothing - points still go to your team
all that is gained if friendship , a little fun and some slagfest even against your own members
if you guys wish I was not chattering some babble and coming here to wreck your harmonious forums then you can banish me to some belching pot of goo
I just wish we had more time to work this out with your leaders
talk quick and get a hold of us at EVGA
So, is anyone here interested in this?
Same problem as a lot of the other formats, there's a big disadvantage unless you're in the EST. Gee, I wonder who won last year?
US population by time zone (2006) ....
Eastern Standard Time (EST) - 141,631,478
Central Standard Time (CST) - 85,385,031
Mountain Standard Time (MST) - 18,715,536
Pacific Standard Time (PST) - 48,739,504
It would work out if there was some sort of averaging formula, in order to equalize the number of folders in each time zone. I know that there's probably only a couple of us on this website who are in central time (manitoba, SK). So, compared to Pacific time, Eastern Time, and even MOuntain Time, we have a distinct disadvantage.
And, just what percentage of the mexican/South American population are folding?
time zones from outside the 4 main ones are put into a group and placed in low PPD teams
CST and EST are the highest pop zones yet pst was in last
MST has the highest ppd/member 22 against 100(EST) ... (6 in top 20 last year... could be 7 of top 20 this year on our team)
love to make an example that the smallest team can beat the biggest
it about overcoming adversity...EST or CST should win CST won 2 yrs ago
and can never resist the chat channel and some good fun
im in MST... I don't care if we never win.... it the threat that it's possible that sends fear into EST
If I can still fold for HWC I am in....Mountain time FTW!!!!!:thumb::haha:
yes you can fold for HWC
you can signup with Hardware Canucks Username/folding name and team no
