I believe it is important that during the times of outlining and appreciating the efforts of high rankings we reflect on why we are folding. We give thanks to those that made it possible and treasure each and every single person that pushed and folded against this invisible enemy.
Coronavirus has claimed over 100,000 lives across the globe, infecting over two million people. This is why we fold, this is the reason we have been brought together. Only in times of such hardship do we see the best and worst of mankind. People from all walks of life doing what they can to help, volunteering, folding, shopping and delivering for their communities, singing, cheering to our key workers. This is the embodiment of humanity, this is how our generation should be remember during this crisis. We are strong, united, resolute. We will not let ourselves be overcome by fear for as long as we have each other. So, go fourth caring with respect, with patience, with tolerance, with kindness in your heart, because it is surely needed in today's world.
Before we get into the rankings there are a few things I want to mention;
1. Although I have been the fact of this event I want everyone to take a moment to give thanks to @Metallus97 for his amazing contribution with the FAQ, tech support and help with the datasheet, @j1philli who has been a tremendous help with validating entries on the sheet and finally @leadeater who wrote the script we used for ensuring smooth data collection.
2. I'd like everyone to head over and donate a few dollars to Jason at EOC, his servers must have taken a beating with all the traffic we have thrown at the guy over the last few weeks or so. You can either use this PayPal link or find the PayPal donation button on the EOC Website on the right. Don't forget to include a note so he knows it came from team LTT, mine said 'With love for LTT, thanks for everything you do.'
3. I'd like to give a personal thanks to everyone who has been understanding of my own health during this event, it was hastily thrown together which lead to more issues than usually found!
4. Finally I'd like to ask that you continue to fold, for the benefit of all of us, even if it is in a far more limited capacity moving forward.
It has been an exciting event, despite the darkness that looms over the world currently many of us, including myself have found a little lightness on the event thread, this doesn't have to end, we do have a Folding Community Board in which you can continue the conversation in all its glory! You can find that Here!
I want to give thanks to everyone who has been involved folding for TeamLTT over the last few weeks, no matter if you are folding only a few points a day or millions, no matter if you signed up to the event or not, your hard work and dedication is appreciated! Don't forget that if you talk about folding on twitter use the hastag #TeamLTT and I will be trying to keep an eye on it, so now, after you have read this post and feel the need to go troll PCMR a little, and lets be honest, after the pitiful attempt to challenge us, you will feel the need. We can all be a little more connected!
In first place, we have @Macaw2000 with an impressive 339,946,109 points warned with 5,613 Work units over the 14 days of the event. He utilised mercenaries well to make a final dash for the throne and now he sits comfortably, in the plush luxury smiling upon those that stand below him.
Second place we have the great oppressor, the disgraced king, @Den-Fi, who failed to take by his throne lost during the great crusades of Folding Month 2019. With 296,964,235 Points achieved with a surprising small 1,444 Work Units it has to be said that he certainly had one of the highest P/WU ratios in the event.
Third place we see is occupied by @walderston, who, given just a little more time could have snatched the silver spot from the fallen king. 237,268,117 Points taken with 1,261 Work Units is nothings to bite your thumb at for sure. But he will be left wondering if he can do better next event!
Fourth place is taken by the veteran @miker07 who has once again proved his worth with 196,425,757 points taken through 2,203 Work units. Forth place is nothing to be ashamed with but it will be interesting to see if he expands his forces by the time folding month comes around.
Fifth place finds @ZombieStew content with his first showing in a LTT Folding event, 145,684,152 Points and 2,079 Work units. He will certainly be looking forward to future events!
Sixth place we have another newcomer, @Unilevers, a fine showing that we hope to see again in the future.
Seventh place is @bafo_ah, another newbie shaking up the team with a good showing.
Eighth place is @wi3si, it will be excited to see if they can muster any more force for the future.
Ninth place can be claimed by @Ayren, who only folded for 13 days should be asking did that one day down cosy them too much?
Tenth place is where we leave this today, @GalaxyNetworks is the proud holder of 10th, the gatekeeper, but will they be bettering themselves next time out.

Events that are coming up!
Top Jank of The Event!
I really just want to thank you all again for taking part in the event, you guys have really made it special, every single one of you!
with all that said it is finally time to wrap this one up, but please continue to fold and I am looking forward to seeing you guys take part in the BOINC Pentathlon, Summer folding sprint and most assuredly, Folding Month 2020!
And the first day of the event has officially taken off.
But first, a PSA, due to data corruption these stats run until 0300GMT, 28th of march, so the stats here reflect 27 hours of folding. As for the participation requirements, they will remain as is FOR NOW, but this is under review and after reviewing the first few days a decision will be made and announced on that days blog. Don't forget to follow this blog to keep up to date!
Well it can be said that today we are heroes, today we unite with all other folding teams to show the world just how much we are capable of. Pushing the Folding@Home network right to the brink of what it is capable of, breaking past the one exaflop barrier and becoming the fastest computing system in the world by a significant margin, and we are growing. Team LTT makes up almost 25% of the networks production, that, is truly a sight to behold. But I expect we have more to give, I expect team LTT will rise to the challenge like never before. Because that's just who we are!
This is just another PSA for the new guys here, the folding team is a small close knit community, so here's a few things I'd like you all to keep in mind. It doesn't hurt to say thank you, if someone has genuinely helped you out don't forget to drop a reaction on their posts, help others where ever you can and finally we are a team first and always.
It has been some time since I has to write a daily report, so bare with me, sit back and enjoy.
Be proud of what you are a part of on this day, be proud of the fact so many of us, from all teams have rallied when the the call to action came in, be proud that you are doing something that is for the benefit of all! Bask in the glory of the power of the whole Folding Network. This is not an event where it is us vs them, there is only US in these dark times.
In first place we have the king! @Den-Fi with 12.01 million points, he has set himself apart from the pack, the question is, can he manage to keep his throne this time around, In second place we have @ZombieStew training behind the king by 1.6 million points holding onto his position with 10.41 million points, one of the many new names to us here at the LTT folding team, he will be looking to leave his mark with his debut, but the question remains, can they keep pace with the king? In third place we have @miker07 a seasoned veteran of the team looking to show that even with all the new folders, he can shine as bright as ever! He has a gap of 760 thousand points, taking third place with 8.7 million points. Fourth place is held onto by @Xoggy with 7.2 million points, a name I know well, he is making a splash with some serious production so far, but can he maintain steam. Fifth place is current occupied by @Fapasaurus, I hope his GPUs can move WU as fast as his hands can.. er.. you know, with 6.2 million points he's nothing if not production.
6th place is taken by @BlackAda, another new name who is seeming like a great addition to the team! with 5.6m points hes one to watch for sure, 7th place has @Macaw2000 with 4.9 million points, lots of new faces up top, its nice to see. 8th place is occupied by another veteran, @Favebook with 4.6m points, not far behind him with 4.5m points we have another seasoned named, @Yabdat. The already well known charitable crustacean @Zberg taking the number 10 spot with 4.1m points. He is the gate keeper of the top 10, but will he be W00P W00Ping his way to a nice finish or is he destined to end us being boiled alive, only time will tell!
11th place has another well known face, @catawalks, I'm not sure how a feline can operate a folding rig and I hope they keep they fans covered with some good dust filters with all that fur, but 3.9m points is nothing to hiss at! The question is, will the cat manage to be the hunter, or is @GOTSpectrum ready to pounce as he is only a stone-throws behind with 3.8m points. 13th is taken by @Unilevers, the question is can they hand out WUs like they do food products, with 3.7m points its all to play for here! In 14th place we find @ykdave and 'you know dave' with just 100 points behind you could very well well show unilevers just what it takes to cut the mustard. @HybridTI is also eyeing up advancing up the ranks being only 10k behind dave.
During this update the top 10 make up 5.7% of the total, the top 50 can claim 14.3% and the top 100 can be proud with their just over 20% stake.
