So just a clarification, when you say:

"Awarding prizes for the Leagues: Up to 150 people who complete the Gold League will win a t-shirt." and "25% of the people entered into each raffle will be selected."

If the league only had 35 qualified winners, then you'll just get 25% of them(9 people). Is that correct? And the up to 150 limit is only for let's say there were 700 qualified people, only 150 will be awarded and not 175?

  • That is exactly how I would interpret it. Although somebody mentioned they'd round down and not up, so 8 of 35. – Matthew Read Mar 20 '13 at 4:14
  • interesting thought, if there was only 1 eligible guy, then 25% of that rounded down would be 0...? – corroded Mar 20 '13 at 17:19
  • that doesn't seem right, but we will see, since there was only one master level winner. – Kexlox Mar 21 '13 at 0:22

Yep! The Gold League maxes out at 150 winners no matter what. Everything else maxes out at 25% of total entries.

    by 'no matter what' you mean for gold league, there will be 150 winners so if it's less than that, then everyone gets it? – corroded Mar 20 '13 at 17:18

    That's my understanding, yes. Should that change, I will make a public announcement to that effect. :) – Aarthi Mar 20 '13 at 17:23
