It's going to be bad luck all around for most pools.  I got some info I have to follow up on that a couple of private farms just brought large multi petihash farms online in the last couple weeks.
If I get this verified I will post about it.

Your definition of luck and my definition seem to differ.

If I do my math right, BTCG should get 800 BTC a day ... or 32 blocks.  Variance, or luck, is what causes that to differ.  Sometimes it's higher, sometimes it's lower.  The presence of other pools or farms isn't going to affect luck, but it will affect difficulty when that time rolls around again.

I'm mining with 2Th/s
and no blocks in the last 5 shifts whats going on !!!!!!!!!!!

I have had bad luck before but this is very strange

The current network hash rate is about 1000 times what you've got and the difficulty is now ridiculous, so not having any blocks with 2TH is nothing to cry about.  You could be like me and mine for shares because you couldn't afford a 2Th unit and never in your entire mining career hit a block.  I figure anything is better than nothing and at this point the only point to mining is the fun of it.  There will be no way to make a profit unless you're a pool operator, like Eleutheria,  or you're selling mining equipment.  Those are THE only two ways to break even or make profit within the mining aspect of bitcoin.  If you want to make bitcoin, make something that people are willing to pay bitcoin for and sell that shit.

I'm going to be forced to switch to Eligius because my reward is so little these days. Not like I wanna go but no choice these days. And I read all over "Much more to come - please be patient". Yea, been a year bud. How much more patient?
I know, I know, you'll all hate to see me go.

Did you post in the right pool forum?

Difficulty keeps skyrocketing.  You aren't going to do better at Eligius.  In fact, you'll probably do worse because they don't do NMC merged mining (as far as I can tell it's at your hash level, instead of pool hash), and they don't pay for stales.

I will say switching to the biggest pools is also what makes it worse.
We have had great luck overall at BTCG and it will come back as we grow and get more gh/s added to the pool as well.
With the NameCoin addition at BTCG it makes it still pay well for when we have bad luck.

Eligius does namecoin too.  It doesn't show in your stats though.

Luck is luck. Switch if you want but consider last 24hr stats.

Blocks found      Hashrate                Ratio blocks/hashrate

GHash.IO    43   8.37 Ph/s               5.1
BTC Guild    35   5.98 Ph/s               5.8
Eligius    23   Stats not loading     3.9 (used same as btcguild)

I guestimated eligius hashrate since the stats are down, but last I checked it was close to or higher than btcguild. So for the last 24hr i'd say btcguild is the best.

We have been doing much better today.  Blocks are ours much more often now.

Well what you could do , if your hardware allows, is point some of your hash rate say 50% at 1 of the big three and and some at the second largest pool ~ 25% and the last 25% at the 3rd highest pool. Think its called covering the spread. that way one way or another you'll get btc that day.

Opentoe you've been threatening to go to another pool for many weeks. You even said you had done so at one point.

Put your money and your hashing power where your mouth is. Drop a post card. Good luck. Wink

The "Unknown" category has grown at Blockchain.info's Hashrate Distribution report. I know it's not entirely accurate, but the Unknown category has either benefitted enormously from a bout of luck or it has expanded greatly.

KNC moved it's private farm (2-3+ PH/s now I believe) off Eligius and went solo mining in the last week or two (hard to remember, Bitcoin time doesn't feel like real time).  So that added a big chunk to 'Unknown'.

They were not the only one's.
Apparently there were a couple more that came online and are coming online.  I did get an email back from one private group who will let me possibly do an interview with them once they are done bringing theirs online and up to speed.
It is an exciting time.
My only worry is that in all reality it just puts mining more and more out of the average persons reach.  I have 100 gh/s total and even though it is not much it usually when BTCG's luck is good makes me about .02 a day a current difficulty.
I really hope I can get more gear but it seems these big farms will concentrate the bitcoins into fewer hands.

You aren't going to do better at Eligius.  In fact, you'll probably do worse because they don't do NMC merged mining


Really? All those NMC that keep on appearing in my wallet from Eligius must be a figment of my imagination, then?  Huh

That was my error.  The Eligius help is misleading and hard to use.

Can someone tell me why there's a difficulty adjustment setting for workers in the pool?  I don't get what it does and in what circumstances would you need (or want) to change it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Statistically speaking, changing the worker difficulty won't affect your expected earning.
 
low difficulty => more valid shares found, lower variance, higher bandwidth usage
high difficulty => less valid shares found, higher variance, lower bandwidth usage

IIRC, btcguild will adjust your worker difficulty automatically, according to your hashrate.

Two reasons I can think of:

Fast workers can be set high so they don't have to do a bunch of low level work before vardiff kicks in.

Vardiff sometimes switches difficulty back and forth constantly due to normal variance in my workers that must be right on the edge of a vardiff calculation. Setting it manually stops this.

Also, some mining hardware doesn't work well with the auto step ups of the difficulty with vardiff.  If you have some of that hardware, you're better off setting the proper min difficulty.
