Well guys, 

 

Here we are again, another folding event another blog written by yours truly! Lets hope we can hit our goal of hitting 10th before the week is out!

 

First off, thank you to everyone who has signed up and is folding hard, remember we are folding as a team first, and for personal glory second, be kind, be friendly and please, let thy GPUs scream for mercy!

 

We have 30 participants signed up for this mini folding event, From the legendary @Den-Fi, it is so kind that his royal highness has graced us with his presence once again. To the newcomers in LTTs folding events such as @Corrupt_Liberty, @Hexagon, @justpoet, @mattheginger, @miker07 and@Skylake_TheMeme.

 

Its good to see some new names around here, hope you have a good time, please do let us know if we can help you and I'm sure the community will be more than willing to assist. 

 

Do remember that there are 5 random steam keys up for grabs and a grand prize provided by His Royal Highness of 50USD on steam(to be awarded to a random participant in the top 25), Please make sure we all say thank you to the man himself.

Will The King take the crown again, or can anyone challenge him, @_Rlocke tried to give him a run for his money during the folding month 2018, can he pull the same rabbit out of the hat?  Can @Ben Quigley get into the top 5 for the sprint, as he fell at the last hurdle during the marathon that is the folding month. @TVwazhere Will be looking to prove himself after the great showing during last years event. Will @MillerPanda manage to get a safe top quarter finish this time around? 

 

As you can see, many of us have much to prove, but only one person can be crowned, the questino has to be asked... Can The King be challenged. 

 

Happy folding, 

 

Ben.

I'd let the GPUs scream, but all of mine are too old to do much, except the unsupported one in my laptop.  Spare core server CPU folding is what I have to get it done with…so no top spots for me.  But, I'm in on it.  I actually participated in the last folding event as well, so I'm not completely new, just apparently didn't actually get signed up, so wasn't in the charts, or get the badge.  FOR THE FOLDS!

Also side note, there's only 30 of us in the competition. If the top 25 are eligible for the keys, that's pretty good odds that you're gonna be i the drawing. Even more so when you consider @Den-Fi cannot enter, as well as mods are excluded (so myself, @leadeater and @Spotty)

If I recall correctly, mods are okay to be a part of this because there is no way for you to gain an advantage from being a mod. Can you confirm @colonel_mortis?

The keys are actually just being given at random, they are provided by myself. The steam cash is what is being offered to the top 25, provided by the king.

Good question. Provisionally I think it should be fine for mods to participate, and I'll get back to you if that changes.
