Feel free to ask anything regarding the next Spring Challenge.
I’ll list the important information below.

  • the formula to compute points for a player counting for their school or company is the following: 10 000^((N- C+ 1)/ N)
  • only the top 5 players of a school/company contribute to their ranking in the leaderboard (if there are at least 3 players in that company)
  • you can choose to compete for the solo competition only

In which hemisphere is it going to be Spring in early March?


#4

Can a company/school win a prize ?
Or the ranking for company/school is just for fun and almighty glory ?


#5

:sweat_smile: I guess it was me wanting winter to be over asap (even if early March in Montpellier feels like spring already). Anyway, for other reasons, the Spring Challenge will be postponed (but will happen in spring). I’ll share news as soon as the new calendar is set.

Company/schools prizes will be revealed later. But the “almighty glory” is what they will be here for :wink:

My school has six different campus locations across France. Is each campus competing individually or is it the school as a whole ?

I hope not for you .

Gadzarts of Chalons en Champagne are the real gadzarts …
The others are simply clones …

And i count 9 campus (including Karlsruhe)…

All joking aside, i think that it depends on school’s label in your profile
And so many possible labels for one school (acronym, full text, … )
But i can make a mistake …

Another real question, if a player as school and company … does it count for both ?

It’s ok to have several entries for each campus of a school. At the end of the day, as dwarfie wrote, it depends on what you added to your profile. Same for companies.

Students should compete for their schools. If they’re currently interns, well, they can choose. It depends on the student/professional setting in your profile.

For sure ? Maybe you could remove the countdown from the page to avoid misunderstanding and disapointments :slight_smile:
