The new guys NEED to get in on this.
The experience gained from competing will go a long ways towards success and if nothing else they'll learn some things along the way, that being the biggest benefit from doing it.

If any of you have ambitions to reach the top one day you'll never get it done sitting on your hands, gotta start somewhere and this is a great opportunity to get started like the rest of us had to.

Good luck to those that decide to compete.

So I just got off the phone with Roman, Ambient competition will feature 3 "staggered" stages.

This decision was taken to make it more active and to partially avoid sandbagging at the end of the competition.

 

The amount of Give Away CPUs has raised from 5 to 7 pieces.

The competition page says open to everyone but here in the thread it says only up to enthusiast tier. Which is correct?

Will be kinda disappointed if I cant participate because I submitted a handful of ice bucket scores years ago...
