    A few notes:
    • Each group is in order, best result first. Top two from each group go through to round 2.
    • Results are given as a comparison against the estimate. Positive result means exceeded the estimate.
    • Some people didn't return any results at all (indicated as 'NR'). To keep things fair, we've treated these as a 'no contest' (i.e. the person couldn't, or decided not to, take part). This was done to avoid someone with a high estimate being bumped out by someone with a low estimate who didn't dump any results.
    • Where there was a tie, the results were decided by who dumped their last WU first. For Group C, the timings were:

      Mark Gray - 16:01:48
      Battie - 16:06:44
      Knights Of The Dark Rose - 18:54:03

    Am i right in thinking people with an output of 0 would always win?

    **Hatches a plan** :D

    Nope you are wrong. You have only got through to round 2 as Truz didn't dump his WU's in time. If you have 0, you will not be counted.;)

    Yeah but if i set my guess to 0. Then dump 0. I'm always spot on with my guess and never over. Surely

    Output of 0 = "Some people didn't return any results at all (indicated as 'NR'). To keep things fair, we've treated these as a 'no contest' (i.e. the person couldn't, or decided not to, take part). "

    0 on result means they equalled their estimate.

    not that I'm involved, but I'd have three columns in the tables - estimate, actual and difference - the "result" column isnt the result - its difference (just being picky).

    WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY 2 Komplikated for me! :confused:

    come back Dooby all is forgiven!!!


    J:D


    remembers clickin EXIT on setidriver to stop sending when required wu's are sent.........ie......if u have a 'non auto transmit ' connection , theres no reason whatsoever to exceed your 'estimate'. Spose the only 'variable is when ADW decides to turn on his slackin comp and record the time :D

    LOL

    17 over estimate :D

    I think that was an achievement in itself :)

    Personally I blame my Prommie for putting me out of the race, even on test settings it was doing wu's in about 2hr - 2hr15 :D

    I think we need more all out dumping races, in fact, TheGrimFiend is asking for a challenge. Oh yes.

    Good luck to you all.

    The drag races were designed to give the smaller dumpers a chance. The all-out dumping from the league was great, but it tended to leave the smaller players swamped by the big hitters.

    I personally think we should alternate between this type of individual race and an all-out (either individual or team - although teams would be better IMHO) dump-fest. That way everyone gets a chance.:)

    Like the leagues, this should be considered experimental, and we'll have to shake a few bugs out (like an entire group achieving their targets:eek: ).

    Actually it's Shaunn88, I entered his account as the one for the races. He's currently crunching for that account on his PC alone, mine are busy doing something else.;)
