So BD was the prizes by category thrown around?? like 300k 200k 100k prizes? so we could actually interest slower cards to?
They were thought of, but in the end, would cost admin/OCN way too much money.

Well im just throwing it out there, but we could just give the prizes away to the top folder of each area, same amount of people you would right now. But i understand that u guys wanna reward the best team.

We could create a pot from members of the teams.
People that cant afford to contribute, should be expected and understandable.

We could do like 5$ from each person, and then at the end of the competition the team gets the pot distributed.

eh eh ?

Glad this got established. I think it could use some tweaking but the fact we are doing something (as far as winnings are concerned) is nice.

Guys, I see alot of bell-aching about who can (or can't) beat KFG. They're just 2x285's and a 275. It's just keeping the redline pushed solid all month. Some of use have had rough days before. KFG can be beaten, it just takes some work. They're not invincible.

No offense to KFG ro anyone else, just saying you guys sound like some whiners in here!

I think some kind of incentive for 'smaller' folders would be nice. To mildly echo the sentiment in here, KFG will take some big guns to knock off, at least a team of 275's and up. The amount of overhead to get a big team like that together to win a prize (keeping it for 1st place only) won't attract any new members (IMHO) but will only serve as an added perk for those of us already in the top 4 to compete harder.

I'm not sure what that 'lower folder' incentive could be, but I think giving them something to work for would be nice. Maybe have a pot-drawing for anyone that average more than 650PPD for the whole month? That would give most of the members a shot as winning something.

My .02


Edit: @ my speak on the KFG situation. Usually Mike, Jade, and Jneses (well...maybe not the rookie ) only make 1-2K PPD more than the 'rest' of us per day. It's just the fact that those extra 1-2K over the span of 30 days (from 2-3 team members) adds up to alot. It's not near as much of a commanding lead as it looks. Just takes a few more straps and/or a team setback to change that. KFG is just consistent.

Repo said it, the key is consistency. I didn't get the highest ppd one day all month, but I still managed to get the 3rd highest ppd. There were several people who won, even wierdo with a gtx 260. I'll admit that Jade and Jnesses won the majority of the days, but there were a few where they didn't win.
