I don't want to go down this road...
the fact is there was NO MOVEMENT IN THE CC FORUMS... don't blame me...don't blame your captain either
so you think two winners is bad.... we could have had more
we could have went with OCAU recommendations with multiple categories and had 5 different winners (even for last place)
the fact is the CC forums talks weren't workin - with only 4 teams in and only 2 talking mainly (at least your captain stepped up and was present and workin for ya)
Id give your captain a pat on the back for their effort
your own team captain offer two proposal(to a vote - one was an evga one) that fell flat on their faces with a deadline (that came and went)
with only 8 teams left in CC (from last year - MPC out for gordon) and only 4 present in the forums
both EVGA and OCN did our best - we were on a lot - two other teams came on once in awhile - but with each one favoring their own proposals what do you expect
EVGA tried different formats - formula,tweaks of formula...but when you get no feedback or no compromise between anyone else - let alone agreement
Well....you wonder why nothing came of it...
as a last ditch effort I went to the teams forums directly to see what could be done
this is where I talked to Adak and he created a new format
this is a compromise...I didn't create it... there was similar talk in other team forums with such a format - it was common ground as far as EVGA was concerned
EVGA had their own deadline for being in - we are already past it - we stayed in because we had movement finally on something...
proposed by one of the original teams in the CC and one of the most senior folders in the CC and folding in general
I thank Adak for his time - he's the one that help moved the logjam
if you have to blame someone - blame the CC forums and the lack of input from the other teams
hell - I still haven't got hold of TPU yet - yet they have a 2012 CC thread and were never on the CC forums
Ive posted to TPU, and PM'd their Capts
the CC is suppose to bring teams together - to talk get to know each other, build bridges. have fun.
All I see is lack involvement in the process from some teams
if it means we start talking more often to each other - so be it. then we should start visiting each others forums and sending care packages to each other
lets talk - lets have more types of contests - or even join EVGA's contests for short races
Bosun(TSC) did that to us this year visited our forums and sent a care package - we sent one back
this is what is needed to get people together on the right track
I don't want to see us all engaged in behavior that shuns and drives teams and people away ...
