I find greater enjoyment being part of the team environment though. The top members of our team should still be successful adding to the team scores in the future.
As was stated earlier, new overclockers will quickly be disillusioned when their efforts do not add to the team totals. Who starts off with top scoring? I was adding .3 - .8 pts per bench to the total with my early efforts but they were additions. If my first 50 benches would not have counted at all toward the team total, I would not have continued in that manner.

this grey area with the hardware sharing and losing boints cause of it is difficult to take in.
but like it was said, once it becomes a big issue and hassle with sub'in scores and no boints or lost boints the bot will become less active and there will have to be changes made... good thing OCN's got a good backing from Vendor's and the admin here are open to friendly comp's here...
Couldn't agree more with either of you. I think some people are living in a bubble and don't realize they are only there because of the little guys, making these changes because of a few people is a massive shame.
But oh well, the fun is in the competition and team aspect and there is no reason for that to change for anyone, we can do it anywhere.
Should we pencil in a team based competition for the coming months? 2man teams maybe? Was pretty funny when we did the 3d fanboy thing
