Wolfman and I (GimmeClassics) are going to be holding a high score tournament for Shoot Em Up fans !
When does this contest start and how can I join ?
The contest will start at January 6th 2014 11:59 gmt time
This competition is going to be a team contest. You can either sign up by yourself and get paired up or sign up with a team mate.
Just leave a reply or send a PM to one of us when you want to join our competition !!
We have a list of all players at the end of this post.
Tournament setup and games
It's going to be a double elimination tournament after 3 rounds of seeding. During the seeding rounds all contestants will play the same game
(1 round = 1 week).
# submitting your hi-score: this contest is going to be a multi-website contest. There will be a thread of our contest at each of those websites.
We wanted to create a contest which is very easy to join. Therefore each player can submit his of her score on the website of their choice: gameex.info, retrouprising.com, shmups.system11.org, atariage.com and retrogamer.net
Just post a screenshot of your score at the forum of your choice or play your game at RetroUprising.
GameEx is the place where the tournament standings and additional info will be made public !!
# point scoring system: your score and your team mate score gets added together. The amount of contestants will determine how many points you will get. Example: if you and your team mate have the 3rd and 4th best score at round 1 with a total number of 40 contestants you'll get 38 + 37 = 75 points.
Comparing all the team scores after 3 rounds of seeding will rank each team for the double elimination tournament. Only the top 24 ranked teams will qualify for the double elimination tournament !!
Double Elimination tournament > each team begins in the winner’s bracket, but with one loss, goes into a loser’s bracket, where they will have to play their way back. All competitors will have the oppurtunity to play at least twice during the elimination phase.
# Games [please play at default settings]
Week 1 (seeding round 1) = Salamander (version D) > romset = salamand
Week 2 (seeding round 2) = Gradius (Japan) > romset = gradius
Week 3 (seeding round 3) = Flying Shark (World) > romset = fshark
Week 4, 5, 6 etc.: the double elimination tournament will start in week 4. The 8 highest seeded teams will receive a bye for week 4.
After the seeding rounds we will publish the game each team has to play each round. This depends on your rank after the seeding rounds and whether or not staying in the winners bracket or having to fight (...eh play) your way back in the loser's bracket.
The double elimination round games will be - in no particular order:
Armed Police Batrider (Japan, B version) > romset = batriderj
Gunlock (Ver 2.30) > romset = gunlock
Mahou Daisakussen (Japan) > romset = mahoudai
19XX The War Against Destiny (Japan 951225) > romset = 19xxj
Darius (Japan) > romset = dariusj
Sexy Parodius (ver JAA) > romset = sexyparo
1945k III > romset = 1945kiii
Dodonpachi (Japan) > romset = ddonpachj
Super Cobra > romset = scobra [= possible extra game 1]
R-Type II (Japan) > romset = rtype2j [= possible extra game 2]
Again: we will publish the game each team has to play during the double elimination phase.
