Almost half of my most recent finished tasks are invalid. A lot of the still in progress tasks have been aborted shortly thereafter. Any pointers to what caused this?

And btw, what is the rationale behind the BHSpin WU vs. ULX reward?
My Ryzen 3700 takes between 1,400 and 3,600 sec for a BH Spin task with 1,333.33 credits and between 1,000 and 1,600 sec for an ULX task for 100 credits. An invalid rate of ~ 50% for the 13X less rewarding task type is a little bit annoying.

Thx

Ah no wonder there are no more tasks this morning. At the rate the queue was dropping I thought there would still be tasks today.

1.1k valid to 1k invalid for me as well. I can't find a task invalid that was actually completed by another person so all my pending work was thrown away for nothing. There better be a good reason for this.

BHSpin v2 tasks used to be worth 333 points. For some reason they are worth 4x now for not 4x the time esp on newer Zen PCs. 100k RAC on a 32 core system used to be pretty good.

There was an error in ULX batch, I had to remove them unfortunately...

Regarding to points for BHSpin - yes, the points are to high and I will correct ot after of this batch do 1/3 (probably).

Are we going to receive credit for the task that were sent back successfully but our wingman's task were cancelled by the server?
I have 96 such tasks in my list and I'm sure others probably have higher amounts of such tasks.

How about leave the BHSpin credits as they are and triple the ULX credits? :)

Now I can agree with this statement. Hopefully I'll have 2nd Place by then and Others will have to work harder to catch me... lol

Uhh did you just increase the runtime by 3x instead of reducing credit? The tasks I got this morning for the Sprint have a lot of different run times. 2h to over 6hr
