  1. I'm making a planning right now.

    hwbot "classic" rev8

    I agree it's a lot of effort put in by overclockers to join online competitions, I just think points is not the way to reward them for their effort. Eg a banner on their profile page saying he won a specific competition is IMHO much more appropriate.

    Are you participating in the competitions just for points? I think most do it either for the prize money (mf competitions) or for the fun (team / country cup / old school best school / etc).
  4. Good write-up and happy to see people mostly agree with you @Cautilus. I should hire you for PR. 😋 Most of your suggestions will be implemented in rev8.x, though not all in the initial launch.

    Indeed, as oc-esports will mostly be retired and competition will mainly focus on fun and teamwork (team cup, country cup, fun challenges) or organized by a manufacturer.

    Updated rev8 / uat with the result of the polls. Top 15/30 for season, 30/60 for career.
  7. mixed results, i'll pick 15 as between 10 and 20 seems to be fine.

    Single core CPU seen as Dual in HWBot prime 30s

    @12AX7 was it seen as a dual core when using the previous hwbot prime 0.8.3? Can you open a command line box and enter this command: cmd /C WMIC CPU Get /Format:List What value does it give for "NumberOfCores" ?

    What people tend to forget is that rev8 is dubbed "classic" as it was my intention to go back to our roots and remove a lot of the complexity that came after rev3. Turns out a lot of the stuff added over the years is loved, but people don't realize it until you are about to take it away. Team power points, a separate league so newcomers don't need to compare against extreme overclockers, team cups, country cup, ...

    Your point is valid, and no, you would not get points for your seasonal ranking if you can't beat your past season's ranking. I'd say there is sufficient hardware on the market for you to either push newer/different hardware in the next season, or beat your own record.

    If people start deleting and resubmitting each year it's possible to add detection for this without moderator intervention.

    Fasttrack, that was what Pieter tried to achieve with the esports/road to pro site. Don't mind me if I don't try it twice.
