A couple of changes we might implement, would like other opinions before doing so.

1. 2 weeks per game, starting on a Monday at 8pm, with the mid/fortnight challenge, being the following Monday at 11.59 PM (or 12.00 AM). Is 2 weeks to long for one game:unsure

2. Due to the length of playing 12 games, reduce it to 8 games over 16 weeks:unsure

3. Point scoring will be the same as per the MGL rules.

Need to get this sorted before we can start :D.


Edit: And for the trophy I was thinking more a plaque, the winners name gets engraved on it, previous winner gets new winner's name engraved and passes (posts) it on.

BTW anyone can play with a MAME setup, rules and more info here http://www.aussiearcade.com/forumdisplay.php?f=31.

I was thinking recently the opposite to this, that we have more games per session. For example, have a 4 week session with 6 or so games. That way if you get bored with or hit a wall with one game, you can go to the next and come back to it later. And people who are busy for one week can still get some scores up by playing when they get time, no more excuses! Probably be able to get through more games this way too.

Just a thought really...

1 game every two weeks with a midweek challenge sounds good to me.

I reckon the midweek points should be dropped.

I like the sound of this.

I agree.

DK, Two weeks is too long for one game, and 16 weeks is too long. I think the Comp needs to keep ticking over or people loose interest.

A lot of the games that come up can be flogged to death in under a week, like who wants to play Crush Roller for 2 weeks (besides me)?

I've given it no thought but maybe,


Have 3 games per fortnight
Still run it for 12 weeks (18 games total over the 12 weeks)
Ditch the midweek points and replace it with a 20 point participation bonus for the player if they submit a score in each game
Go back to structured points table for each games winners (1st 100, 2nd 90 , 3rd 80 etc )instead of the current system. Nothing shits me more than playing my butt off for a week and getting flogged and getting 2 points (except when I do the flogging)
Before you kick off do up an add for the general section to let people know what the hell an MGL is, how it works and what's up for grabs


Just some ideas to try get people entering, keep it moving and keep it close :D

20th July 2009, 08:13 PM
I second the 2 week per game idea. 2 weeks is a good period of time to play a game for, allows for better scores / and you have time to get into the game more. 2 weeks is a good period of time to get to know a game, especially one that you might be completely unfamiliar with.

The halfway challenge also a good idea, also the 16 weeks / 8 games per tourney.

I'm so agreeable :cool:

Brad
20th July 2009, 08:25 PM
I think 1 game per week is fine although I always seem to run out of time. I definitely want to scrap the mid-week points though.

This will be my first MGL, so its hard to compare, but i do like the idea of 1 game every 2 weeks.

SectionZ
21st July 2009, 07:17 PM
2 weeks is too long for most games, though it would be welcome on platformers.

I think the midweek bonus should stay (perhaps it could be just 10 pts).
Without it there may not be any scores posted till the last day or so.

I like the % scoring system, If we use a fixed system, midweek should stay at 25 pts.

Ok, seems the regulars are happy with one week games, so will stay with that.

A lot of people want to drop the midweek points, but this was a good way to get "high scores" posted mid week, otherwise we end up with a frantic burst on the last night. So have decided to stay with that as well:D But will only be 10 pts!

May as well keep the % based scoring system while I am on a roll.:rolleyes

So nothing will change but the midweek points dropping to 10 points.

Start Monday 8pm, finish following Monday 8pm, Midweek points allocated to highest score posted by Wednesday 11.59 PM of the game week.

Will start 27/7:)

Spinner game:unsure, makes it hard for people without one (most) with a MAME setup, better to stick to joysticks and buttons for MGL;)
Games that can be played with basic controls are best for the MGL, thanks for the suggestion though.

Fair call... have been using MAME on the laptop to date but will install the new xxxx-in-1 in to the cabinet and fire it up tonight.

I remember playing this on the C64 back in the 80's. Might have to load it on to the Wii.

Noticed Joust was in the original list only 3 times. :lol I'll add my weight behind it to have it nominated x 4. :worship:
