Here at HWBOT we try our best to deliver a fair and enjoyable playing field for all those who participate in the rankings and competition. To be able to provide this kind of service we have tried to design some submission and general rules to help remove any doubts about whether something is allowed or not. Based on continued experience these rules will be updated, expanded and completed as time goes by. Please check back for any updates.
The first season of the Pro OC Cup is coming to an end. With two wins KPC Pro OC is seemingly on their way to victory, although United Overclockers still has a chance. With teams ranked 4th to 8th within 50 points, this third round will no doubt be an interesting one. Who secures the podium spots? Who falls outside of the top 5? Who becomes the first Pro OC MVP? We will get answers to all those questions this round! The third Pro OC Cup runs from September 15 until December 15 12:00 GMT+0. Until October 15, Pro OC overclockers can register to participate in the Pro OC League. To register, simply submit one score (per team) before October 15 12:00. The first month of the competition is the transfer period: overclockers can create new teams, join existing ones, leave their current team, and even opt to quit Pro OC. After this registration period of one month, the teams and their line-up are fixed. There is no stepping back and no sudden stepping up to the game – if you are in, you is in. If you are out, you are out.
Pro OC Cup Q4'13 Details
During the next three months, all teams can submit their results as they please. Two weeks before the end of the competition, on December 1 (12:00 GMT+0), an elimination takes place. Only the 10 best overclocking teams will be allowed to submit results in the last two weeks of the competition; for the rest the competition is over and the ranking will not change.
Just like the previous Pro OC Cup, the Q4'13 round consists of five different stages. The stages for this round are:
- XTU Full Out (limited to single socket)
- AMD SuperPI 32M
- 3D11 Performance Mainstream (GTX760/HD7870/R9 270X + Core i5 K/FX-series)
- 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme Single GPU
- 3DMark Vantage Performance Full Out
Each Pro OC Team can consist up to five members. The members are linked to the Pro OC Team and will no longer be participating in any of the other user leagues, excluding the Hardware Masters, for the duration of the Pro OC Cup. The members are not obliged to submit any results, so joining a team can be merely to point out you are part of the team. For example, if someone takes up the role as Team Manager, he or she may be responsible for finding sponsors but may never submit a single result. Once the Cup finishes, all members are free to stay with the team, leave it, or join another one. As each competition starts from scratch, moving from one team to the other will not affect the team’s ranking.
