February Hub Competition!

The competition is straightforward. Basically, the hub that flies more, wins. Each ACARS flight flown by a pilot earns their hub a base number of points, and the hub with the most points at the end of the month takes the cake. Some months have a special rule; this month, only flights that depart and...

Willam, is BWI not a focus city?  It has the purple star on the route map.

I didn't want to fly BOS-BWI if I wasn't earning points!  (pilot)

Hi all,
as a new member, I'm flying in the February HUB Competition to give some points to KMCI, but curious about the formula used to calculate the credit given to HUB for each approuved flight.
Well, I'm back in the competition  ;)

The formula gets a little complicated but here is the stuff that we can share.

Each hub is assigned a daily hub differential that is based on roster size, pilots on leave, and some other components to determine an active roster size. The differential is there since each roster size fluctuates and we want to make the challenge a little more fair.

For each pirep that meets the criteria the hub differential is multiplied by a base number. That base is basically 2 for Vatsim flights and 0.5 for non-Vatsim flights.

So as an example,
PiRep flown on ACARS for BWI-BOS for an MCI based pilot.
Differential: 4.2
Pirep OFFLINE - Multiplier: 0.5
Final Points: 2.1

Cause the Boston crews are getting killed   :tblwd:

I flew on Feb 1st and didn't get any points for the Hub  :'(

Definitely a great idea by the Staff though.

Looks like your Feb 1st flight was PHL-BOS.

The rule this month is flights that arrive AND depart from a hub or focus city.
