Indonesia Victorious in First Country Cup Stage ? Next Three to Close in 2 Days!

It came to a surprise of many that the winner of the first closing stage (Stage #8) turns out to be Indonesia. In our previous news article we presented the table of the top 5, and Indonesia ranked fourth at the time. But everyone was looking at the big countries such as USA, Germany, or Australia. In an interesting turn of events, Indonesia came out victorious with a not-so small lead of 3 seconds over Australia, and 5 seconds over Romania.

The biggest victim of the final (sandbag)-stretch seems to be the USA. The team fell back from first place to fifth, but due to the point algorithm only lost 8 points overall. The rest of the Country Cup is coming up rather quickly now, with the next three stages closing in less than three days! The USA is leading in two of those, but might see heavy fire from Indonesia and Australia. Noteworthy is the performance of France this year. They came in sixth in the SuperPI 32M stage, are currently leading in Stage 5, and runner-up in stage 6. The next stages are going to be more important. Not only the points for the winners increase, but also the slope of the point algorithm increases. This means that losing a spot will cause you to lose more points than in the previous stage.

In any case, congratulations to Indonesia especially but also Australia and Romania for finishing in the top-3 of Stage 8. Good luck in the next stages!

(PS: with 1,500 submissions and nearly 400 participants, this year?s Country Cup is the largest competition we?ve ever hosted!)

^^^^^this... Sandbagging is just so annoying and ruins everything. The goal should be to have a score which nobody can't beat anyway. Submitting in the last minute is pretty cowardly.

Too bad we couldn´t compete on the 4 k laptops, but germany is a poor country and we also rarely get samples - at least we can ask for junk medal for best average desktop scores lol - grats to the top 3

Sometimes it's necessary for these competitions, e.g. if your screenshot reveals the thing which gives you advantage, but otherwise I agree.
I've posted my best scores so far and I guess final ones for the benchmarks I have scores at all.

I liked the 8th stage more with the 5GHz cap. Not saying Indonesian guys don't have skills, ofcourse they do and are very strong every year, but in this stage skill meant nothing.
Noone beat my 3770K score and I didn't even push hard, cause I knew it won't matter in the end...
With a 5GHz cap it would have been different, eliminating these laptops.

Just my 5 cents. Congrats to Indonesia and other countries. We're out this year, but still will fight until the end with whatever hardware we have. Hopefully will at least manage to close all stages, although it seems a little out of reach at the moment.
