Experience is CLIMBING!

Even though this is a team competition - we are all a one big team on Stall Catchers after all! And in three days of #CrushALZ our collective experience has risen so much, that we are now analyzing real vessels at 57% rate! (This is really something, considering that most participants only joined the game a few days ago.)

"Real" vessels are those that have never been seen by anyone but you & are the ones pushing us to the research goal. More in Day 2 post.

This means that we are getting to research goal faster, which is the grand goal of #CrushALZ! More about the research goal in the next post.

Good Luck on Day 4 everyone & if you haven't joined the competition yet - JOIN NOW! Everyone can do it ;)
