Hello HWBot-competitors !!
It has been quite a while since the last newspost as most of the crew have been very busy. We’re still working hard on adding new features to the bot; Richba5tard, owner and coder, will have a heart-attack for sure when he gets back from his vacation as the ‘new features’-list is getting longer and longer.
Anyway, enough about HWBot, let’s have a look at you guys. Since the release of the GTX280, P45 motherboards and the E8600 people have been breaking worldrecords a lot. This morning, I had a quick peek at the Overclockers League and was quite surprised.
This is getting a really thight battle!
More and more people are breaking the 1000-points barrier and people are battling all over the ranking to gain spots. Really, one or two big results can make you jump three places:
- Place 20-17: Barron_Greenback, Zannema, Nachthymnen and Fubarswe: awesome battle!
- Place 16-15: Tsan and Dedal: so close …
- Place 14-12: Jmax_oc, T_M, Mickeymouse: just a few inches away
- Place 11-10: Mayk and Stummerwinter: one-on-one duel
- Place 9-7: Nazar, Sergey13 and Joe_cool: Germany-Russia, could have been the Euro2008 final
- Place 6-2: No_name, Hipro5, SF3D, Pro, GPRHellas: battle of the best, no doubt about that
- Place 1: K|ngp|n:Â Having a beer, not knowing that soon people will challenge his first spot (*wink*)
And this is only what happens on the first page, I could easily give you even tighter battles if I show you second and third page. The same goes for the Teams League, in which we see a Belgian duel as well … :-).
With the upcoming overclocking contests of MSI, Asus and Gigabyte, I have only one message people: BENCH HARD, people, BENCH HARD!
