Round 2

It's on!

I like that HQ tried to clear up any potential confusion ahead of time on this one: http://games.crossfit.com/compete/wo...-push-box-jump (safe)

For instance, 99 pounds DOES equal 100, but 97 pounds DOES NOT. And it's acceptable to have some incidental bouncing from doing fast deadlifts, but it is not acceptable to have intentional bouncing. It's important to have strict standards for credibility.

Now if we could just get all the competitors to clear their cache so we don't have to extend this one a week as well.

I dont think they're going with that story any more. Mr. Budding basically admitted that they werent prepared for the amount of competitors, in the Open Recap video.

Anyway - fingers crossed for a glitch-free WoD 2! I also saw that Pat Barber hit 13+ rounds already on this one!

Interesting video. Alas, two relatively basic things remain unclear, at least to this viewer: Who is responsible? What happened?

The number of competitors does not explain the problems; that would suggest if there'd been, say, merely 10,000, the website would have worked seamlessly. Wrong.

I'm guessing the communication between HQ and the designer probably broke down with lots of nasty finger pointing ensuring . . .
