They have kinda run out of good ideas for it i think. They have done the good ones a few bad ones too now


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

They just need to wait until dbrand reaches out and sponsors them for another series again.

It is not that easy to find new ways of doing scrapyard wars after 7 seasons. I have a few ideas, but I am not sure how practical they are.

For example add the constraint that the finished PC must be submersible but still use air cooling (would be a "snorkeling" and otherwise waterproof PC). That could be fun and would certainly be challenging since it involves some custom modding.
Another thing could be to set an upper power consumption limit and ask the teams to get the best performance. That could involve some underclocking/undervolting, which would also be new for the scrapyard war series.
Yet another idea would be to provide each team with the same set of strange objects all of which have to be integrated into the build and actually have to serve some kind of purpose other than being only a decorative item.

Must be able to fit into [prebought small case OR shoebox]
Non-x86 and running linux

I really hope this series is brought back. It wouldn't matter to me if the topic is same as a previous season, used hardware is so diverse, you'll find something different very time.

Here is an idea for a Scrapyard Wars, build a retro PC and make the rules it can't be a Pentium 4 or greater.
