Yeah, heaven forbid anyone should try to play the game as it was designed ;)

I prefer mashing buttons like a skilled player.

Its all in the timing. Perhaps mashing is the wrong word. Hammering a fire button while retaining fine control of other buttons/controls does make a game harder. Its why real competitive players don't use autofire.

to make scoring easier to understand
I am planning on adding a cap for the games per week to 3 and do a rotation

Week One Scenario:

Site A has 20 participants and picked Galaga as their selection.

Site B has 50 participants and picked Bosconian as their selection.

Site C has 30 participants and picked Zoo Keeper as their selection.

Each team now must qualify with five scores on each of the above games. It does not matter how many player scores a site submits on each game as only the top five scores for each site qualify. These top five qualifying scores are now ranked against the other sites top five qualifying scores. Team score is based on rank tally with the lowest score tally winning the round.

Should a team fail to submit five scores on each game, missing submissions will automatically receive last place rank. In the above scenario, last place rank with three teams would be 15.

At the end of week one the standings might look like this for Galaga:

Galaga:

1 point - 2,000,000 - submission 1 site a
2 points - 1,800,000 - sub 1 site c
3 points - 1,700,000 - sub 2 site a
4 points - 1,600,000 - sub 3 site a
5 points - 1,500,000 - sub 4 site a
6 points - 600,000 - sub 5 site a
7 points - 550,000 - sub 2 site c
8 points - 500,000 - sub 3 site c
9 points - 450,000 - sub 1 site b
10 points - 400,000 - sub 4 site c
11 points - 350,000 - sub 5 site c
12 points - 300,000 - sub 2 site b
13 points - 250,000 - sub 3 site b
14 points - 200,000 - sub 4 site b
15 points- 150,000 - sub 5 site b

Site A received points for 1st place, 3, 4, 5 and 6th place for a total of 19 points.

Site B received points for 9th place, 12, 13, 14 and 15th place for a total of 63 points.

Site C received points for 2nd place, 7, 8, 10 and 11th place for a total of 38 points.

Overall team scores for Galaga:

Site A - 19
Site C - 38
Site B - 63

Now repeat the above for Bosconian and Zoo Keeper to obtain the total week scores for each team.

Continue on to week two and repeat.

Contest revisions:


Due to heavier than anticipated interest and numerous players bringing up many concerns, the following is a list of changes for this contest. While we appreciate that some players may or may not agree to everything here, we think these changes will make for a better overall tournament that the majority of players will enjoy. Due to the date at hand, there will be no further changes to this contest.

1. - Selected games will be played for the entire five week period



2. - Each team will choose four games – send your game selections to Wolf no later than June 30th. Wolf will inform all sites of game selections upon receipt of selections. Should duplicate game selections be received, the team with the highest number of registered players will yield to the team with the smaller number of players. The smaller team will select another game. Wolf will advise of all details once final list of games have been posted. Once games are selected and posted by Wolf, players not already registered on a site are no longer eligible to play. Existing site members may join (eliminates ringers). Games will be played with default dip switches


3. - Auto fire is not allowed


4. - Adjudication – we all know or know of each other generally speaking so there should be no need for this. Players are encouraged to save their INPs for all game play. Disputes (if any) will be handled on a case by case basis and reviewed by all sites.


5. - Submissions: players should submit their scores via this form– as we want to maintain as live a scoreboard as possible, please submit early and often. Please do not hold on to score submissions. Need to know if there is going to be a retrogamer team to make the form for them



6. - All games must be completed and submissions received no later than 11:59PM Eastern Standard Time on August 5th. Any scores submitted after this time will not be valid. Again, submit early and often.


Looking forward to an awesome tournament!
