Default Bowman Prospect Challenge site may be working?

I was about to hit the sack when I checked the Bowman Prospect Challenge link and it kind of worked. It was up but wouldn't accept my registration and I'm not sure if my old name and password from other Topps contests is to be used again. I tried with a different email but it kept having registration errors.

http://bowman.topps.jollyscience.com/users/login

Just wondering,
VinnyH

The requested address was not found on this server.

Request blackholed due to "auth" violation.

I was just reading the official rules for the Challenge, it seems a little complex, but maybe that's just me. If I read it right, it says you can only use a particular player once during the 5 months. I also read that once you "draft" a player after entering a code, that player is taken out of the pool of 300 players, so you can't get dupes. Not like in the Football gametime giveaway where you could build up multiple coins of one team to play that team more than once.

wait what?

The jollyscience part of the URL did make me raise my eyebrow at first but it is from topps domain...you probably had a virus on your system before you went to topps site.

Also tried making an account got the same error.

Rules aren't clear, but it looks like there are no odds assoicated with the Blue Wave packs, as they talk about "pre-determined intervals" where they will be unlocked.

This tells me it will be very, very hard to get a blue wave pack.

Not sure how, wouldn't the rankings be counting stats? No games have been played yet.

Maybe a test run of the system with fake accounts?

do you get extra points if you draft a player and during the season they get called up to the majors?

Well it looks like I somehow made an account, cause I got through, but now it won't let me log in, and when I try to create a new account, it says that email and username is taken.

So I guess I have an account?

If the odds are really tough for the blue wave packs, and if you can only change your lineup once a month you won't need very many codes to unlock enough players for a roster month to month.

This could keep code prices down, but I guess we won't know until it goes live.

Just spoke to someone at Topps, who informed me they are working on the site and that they will send an announcement once it's fully operational.
