2012 Forum Folding War  

post #1 of 990
Thread Starter 

 

Welcome to the 2012 OCN Forum Folding War! 

What?
"What's the Forum Folding War?", I hear you ask.
Well, in an effort to generate some momentum to get OCN into 2nd in the world, and to get some competitiveness out of you all, we've decided to split the overclock.net forum up into Folding teams.


When?
One week, from the 11th-18th of November. The event starts at 12pm EST/5pm GMT.
That gives you all plenty of time to get some clients set up, so if you've got any questions, don't hesitate to ask. 


Teams?
As of right now we are getting the word out about the event. PM me if you are wanting to form your own team and I'll get it added to the list. I, along with the other folding editors, will start PMing out to the other editors / mods on OCN and see if they would like to make a team and start this ball rolling.

 

 

 
 
Here is the sign up sheet: http://folding.axihub.ca/ffw_signup.php
 

 

Prizes?
Group 1 will be randomly given out to the winning team.
Group 2 will be a random draw for all other participants. So even if you think your team won't win, there's still a chance to win prizes. 

Group 3 will be randomly given to every participant.
 

Group 1 prizes:

  • 1x OCN Duckey G2 Pro – admin
  • 4x $30 PayPal – admin
  • 2x OCN Hats (small) -admin
  • 1x Small ATX Tech Bench Spotswood (waiting on shipping info)
  • $US25 x 1 PayPal - Sethy666
  • 1x Dirt 2 (Steam) - axipher
  • 1x Stalker (Steam) - axipher
  • 1x Modern Warfare 2 (Steam) - axipher
  • 2x 4x4GB Patriot 2133MHz DDR3 – Scorpion49 (International Shipping)



Group 2 prizes:

  • 2x $30 PayPal – admin
  • 1x OCN Hat (small) - admin
  • 2x $25 PayPal – king8654
  • 1x 2x2GB G.Skill 2133MHz DDR3 – Desert Rat (USA only shipping)
  • 1x Dirt 2 (Steam) - axipher
  • 1x Stalker (Steam) - axipher
  • 1x Modern Warfare 2 (Steam) - axipher

 

Group 3 prizes:

  • 8x $30 PayPal - donated by admin
  • 2x OCN Hoodie - donated by admin
  • 2x OCN Hats - donated by admin
  • 1x Dirt 2 (Steam) - axipher
  • 1x Stalker (Steam) - axipher
  • 1x Modern Warfare 2 (Steam) - axipher

 

 


How do I win?
As long as you Fold one WU during the event, we will include you in the prize draw.
For those of you who use your Team's Folding name and not your own, you will need to submit proof. To do this, you will need to submit a screenshot of:

• HFM with a WU at at least 50% completion, with your team name shown.
• The current time in UTC from time.gov. Must be taken during the event.
• Your OCN username in Notepad.

Example.

Then email the screenshot to folding@overclocked.net.


What else do I have to do?
Folding your heart out. Use your team thread to ask questions, or stop by the Folding section and post a thread, We'll be happy to help.

Overall Points

    Simply a SUM of all the points made by all users that are signed-up for each team. The points offset were all set to the start of the FFW, then after the first day, any new sign-ups after that had their start offset set to the time they signed-up at. This value will just continue to grow and grow as the FFW goes on. It you see this value go down, there's a problem...



Active Folders

    This graph represents the number of active folders on a team. It uses the same data as above to determine if you are active or not. If a folder is signed up and has a current point value that is higher than their start value, they are deemed active. If the Team username is active, it counts as 1 folder. As I get proof screenshots from people folding for the team username, they will get added. the first folder of course will count as 0 since the team username is already counting as 1. As above, this value should be alow rising as well, if it goes down, there is a problem.



Points Per folder (PPF)

    This value is a simple division of overall points and active folders. Don't need much of an explanation here. This value will fluctuate up as more powerful folders start folding, and will fluctuate downwards as less pwoerful folders join. On larger teams, this won't fluctuate as much, but for smaller teams, this could be a big factor in their overall rank points.



Overall Rank/Points

    Here is another easy one. Each team gets points based on their position on the other 3 graphs, or categories. The number of points you get is based on the number of teams. Last place gets 1 point, 2nd last palce gets 2 points, etc. So in this FFW we have 6 teams, so 1st place in a category gets 6 points. this means a team can get a minimum of 3 points and a maximum of 18 points. This also means that it is not possible for two teams to tie for first or last, but can tie for 2nd to 2nd last.


    In the event of a tie, we, the Editors, will determine the path forward if it will affect prizes.

Don't forget stats for the event and the sign-up. AMD, PM me with any questions you have about it.

http://folding.axihub.ca/ffw_signup.php

All teams will need to confirm participation and new teams will need to post here as well so we can get you set up with a spot on the sign-up sheet and a team folding username. We also need to ensure that team folding username is primed with at least 10 SMP WU's to enable bonuses.
