    I was in the mob from the start when I played on friday. I did really well but won nothing. I thought when the one chose the mob, the ms points the one won would be shared by the mob.

    It is exciting though.

    You get into the 'mob' or 'the one' but answering questions correctly and fastest.

    There was some CRAZY quick people on Friday...

    This is how you get in the mob/one;


    Subject to the participation limits for the role of “The One” described below, before each Round, we will select the top player in the game lobby to compete as “The One” based on a pre-designated and weighted combination of the following skill elements:

    - Participation: How many questions you answer
    - Speed: How quickly you answer questions
    - Accuracy: How well you answer questions

    After selection of The One as described above, and subject to the participation limits described below, before each Round, we will select the top one hundred (100) players in the game lobby to compete as a member of ‘The Mob’ based on the same skill criteria used to determine The One, as described above.

    There ARE prizes! There are prizes. There are prizes and also prizes. I'll link it again:

    http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/live/1vs100/game_rules.htm

    Have a good browse, there are prizes. This week you can earn sweepstake entries, on Friday there are prizes. This Friday coming, not the one passed. PRIZES! I could possibly be wrong, but do have a look at the link, it has the facts, in black and white. It's all there!

    Wow... some of those prizes are really nice. I can see people desperately hanging on to their status as the one only to lose it all.

    (muhahaha)

    DFawkes: Aceybongos has confirmed there are no prizes in the beta. BetaBetaBetaBetaBetaBetaBetaBetaBetaBeta

    Read above you, Psychotext kindly quoted it, which I really should have. But there are prizes now. Just not, as it says on the official site, On 10th/11th passed.

    Really is clear as mud though, very easy to get confused given all the misinformation out there.

    Wheres this from? AFAIK its JUST from the sweepstake not one/mob...

    I'm looking here...

    It’s simple: The more you play, the more you could win!

    From week two onwards you’ll be able to win some truly incredible prizes like Microsoft Points, laptops, HD TVs, holidays and even a car! Whether you play in the 1 vs 100 (beta) Season 1 LIVE CHALLENGE or 1 vs 100 (beta) Season 1 EXTENDED PLAY game, you’ll be entered into our sweepstakes so you’ll have even more chances to win*! This means you’ll have time to practice before the game is on. Good luck! (Remember, you’ve got to be 18 or over to win.)

    Clearly!

    And remember - no prizes until week two, we're just testing 1 vs 100 out at the moment 8:15 PM Jul 10th from web

    It's *BETA* for a reason, if they're giving out prizes they may aswell have just launched it...
    No prizes until week 2... which is exactly what it says in my table above.

    /facepalm

    ...I guess the prizes being given out in the US and Canadian betas aren't real too?

    So the only way to get into the mob or be the one is to be in the top 101 players? If so, thats a bit depressing coz there loads of rounds where I answered all the questions correctly (got them pretty quickly too) but my score never came close to some of the top players. I still don't know how they got those scores.

    Lag switches, paying off the question writers, and overdosing on Red Bull, I reckon.

    You need a really good connection to get into the One/Mob it seems...

    I still think that's crap (as in, not how they do it). There's no good reason for having the server work out how fast you responded when it could be done better on the client side.

    It'd be a lot better if all 3 answers came up at once as well (rather than one by one), that'd definitely show up people's speed better.
