Post by wolfman24 » Thu Jun 12, 2014 5:11 am

Internet Gaming Bash of the Year


Date of the contest:
Will run from 07/01/2014 – 08/05/2014

Participation:
Will be open to the entire website that is participating.

Games:
There will be as many games per week as there are teams. (i.e., 5 teams will result in 5 games per week. The maximum amount of games possible for a given week will be limited to 10).

Game Selection:
Each website will pick their game to be submitted for the play week. Remember, this is a 5-week tourney. Games will be Mame-only. Games can not be reused after selected. The Sites will also have to play game submissions from each site each week as well

Scoring System:
Each website will submit their 5 highest scores per game. Each score will count as a rank. The scores will be tallied each week and after all 5 weeks are up, the lowest score will be crowned the Internet’s greatest gaming team. If your team has less then 5 submissions the missing subs will be in last place

An example of this would be:
Team 1 rank
Score 1 1
Score 2 5
Score 3 10
Score 4 20
Score 5 30
Total Points 66

01/07/2014 to 05/08/2014 then.

Autofire allowed! That's cheating.

Also hard to play a game without a controller, whether that be stick, joypad, keyboard or whatever. Good job they stipulated that :lol:

Will they be specifying the dip switch settings and romsets to use? This impacts on things like game difficulty, lives per credit, various score exploitations etc.

And Twin Galaxies, official score keepers for world records for many a year.

If its not built into the cab, its not a legit play tactic. Even those that do have it may depend on certain competition settings.

Using autofire means you're only using half the controls.

Well, how would you play a game without a controller?

So by your own admission, it does help, giving an unfair advantage to those who use autofire i.e. cheating.

Sorry, this started out as some light poking, it its turned into proper pedantry.

reason i posted your post about the controller was cause controllers are allowed in the contest and I was confused why you bought it up if they were allowed lol

yeah it helps but if everyone can use autofire then there is no big deal about it

I am restricted to using keyboard for all games. There is no auto-fire option. Ergo I am at a disadvantage. Consequently, auto-fire should be disallowed as we are otherwise not all on the same playing field. :mrgreen:
