So I just got off the phone with Roman, the Extreme competition will feature 4 "staggered" stages.

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

Huge competition but the time frame is disappointing. Have to decide between summer holidays and competition. Good luck to everyone (especially to those who have a wife 😄).

Albrecht and me decided on a time but you will not know about the exact hour and minute. It's to fight sandbagging and reward those who post strong results early :)

thanks for this solution, i think it was about time to change something. the competition will be much more interesting
