  • World Championship of eSports 2020



    Hi all Gamers World Wide,

    I hope you are all well, and ready to game in the World Championship of eSports for 2020. This will be bigger and better than ever. Further details are below.



    Competition:
    The gamer with the highest total competition score over the tournaments MGL43, MGL44, MGL45 and MGL46 will be the World Champion of eSports for 2020. This is a tough 32 weeks with 40 games season, competing world wide on the most challenging arcade video games on the planet. If there is a tie on the overall scoreboard, then a head to head game win count will be used to determine the final placings. If there is still a tie, then the accumulated game scores will determine the placings.

    Prizes:
    In January 2021, the World Champion will win, as well as the prestigious and undisputed title of World Champion of eSports for 2020, 420 USD in cash. 2nd place will win 165 USD, 3rd place will win 125 USD, 4th place will win 120 USD, 5th place will win 115 USD, 6th place will win 110 USD and 7th place will win 100 USD.

    Additionally, in each MGL, every gamer that plays all of the games has the chance to win the mystery prize. So if there are 10 games and you play and submit for all 10, then if you are drawn from the pool of qualifiers, then you will win all of the prizes. Whether you finish in the top half or the lower half in the tournament, you still have a chance to win. Prizes will be cash and/or CAG memorabilia. For example in MGL43, there will be 5 mystery prizes.

    Point system:
    The incremental point system will be used for each game. 1st place will earn 100 points, 2nd place 99 points, 3rd place 98 points and so on. All gamers will earn competition points for their scores and the point system may be adjusted incrementally higher due to the number of submissions for that game.

    Games:
    Games are nominated by the competitors and sent by PM to the Gamemaster. Games must be selected from 1976 to 1990 and no trackball or steering wheel games are to be nominated. The number of games that can be nominated by each competitor will be posted for each MGL. The games to be played in the competition will be randomly drawn from the pool of nominations. Only unique games will be in the pool, as there will be no duplications from nominations. The order of game play will be determined by the Gamemaster and each game will be released weekly for competition.

    Settings:
    The game settings will be posted in each MGL and gamers must ensure they compete on these settings only. No continues are allowed when submitting a score and must be played from the beginning of the game. No pausing allowed. No auto fire allowed. No cheats allowed. No stitching of inps from using save states in MAME.

    The WolfMAME version 0.106 is highly recommended, however any later version can be used. Only the version 0.106 ROM set will be posted for each game and the equivalent for other MAME versions can be used.

    Games can be played at the arcade. You must ensure the arcade operator has the game at the MGL game settings for the submission to be valid.

    Submissions:
    Gamers are to post a screenshot/photo of their score with initials in the game thread. Games are only open for 17 days and any score submissions made after the game is closed by the Gamemaster will not be accepted. Scores at aussiearcade.com will be combined with scores from twingalaxies.com to form the world championship scoreboard.

    Gamers:
    Professional and casual gamers can play all or just some of the games. Gamers do not need to nominate games to play, they can play any game during the tournament. Streaming games and posting/sharing tips are encouraged, as is friendly banter in the gaming community. Striving for PBs, learning and playing the best a gamer can are all highly encouraged. As all members at AA are registered, there is no additional registration process for the championships.

    Changes to the World Championship of eSports:
    Compared to last season, 6 changes have been made.
    1. 40 different games will be played this season, compared to 36 different games last season, an increase of 4 games.
    2. Each MGL will have 10 different games, compared to 9 each last season.
    3. In previous competitions, one game was released after week 3. To improve the gamer engagement and the excitement of the competition, 2 games will now be launched after week 3. The 2020 season will be 32 weeks and has not changed compared to last season.
    4. The prize money has been increased for all placings this season (except 7th place remains at 100 USD).
    5. There is a new 2X bonus multiplier that will be applied to all prize money, if 150 or more different gamers compete anywhere across the four MGL tournaments. For example in this case, 1st prize will win 420 x 2 = 840 USD, 2nd prize 165 x 2 = 330 USD and so on.
    6. If 75 or more different gamers play in one MGL, there will be 2 mystery prizes for 2 gamers, instead of 1 mystery prize for 1 gamer. If 150 or more different gamers play in one MGL, there will be 4 mystery prizes for 4 gamers.

    Further details will be posted at the launch of each MGL. Good gaming and good luck to all competitors. If you have any questions, please feel free to post on this thread.

    Wow OOO! Another great edition of the tournament.
    I watched the video. I loved it!


    That quiz really only the most experienced players got all the questions right.

    I will be divulging to my friends about this tournament. I'm sure it will be great!

    I recommend that everyone advertise in groups that have players who like arcade games (preferably in trusted groups that you know have honest players like us who participate here).

      Thanks for your enthusiasm on this event, that's great.Yes it would be great if everyone could try and spread the word to get their friends or family to compete. For this season, there will also be more prizes if the gamer number targets are achieved. We are in very challenging times right now. I hope this event will inspire many gamers to engage with the great people here, and the super competition to follow.

              Hey I just saw this post - great news for challenging times! The Aussie Arcade App for iOS doesn't seem to work since the upgrade. PM me any recommendations for a good mobile app for Aussie Arcade!

              I got 8 wrong in the new quiz...

                That means you got 16 right which is a good effort. There were some really tricky questions. Like sometimes all of the options were related. Question 8 had all fighting game answers. Question 9 had all games starting with the letter "G". And there's more.



                Good fun. Play in the MGL to build your knowledge and your gaming skill.

                            Good stuff Bob. Also good to "hear" you are busy interviewing some very interesting people on your podcast. Like your interview with George Gomez – Co-Creator of Tron & Spy Hunter

                            http://80sarcadepodcast.com/2020/03/

                            Nice stuff! Love it.

                              I guess the only good thing to come out of this whole CORVID-19 pandemic, is the fact that I have a crap load of time on my hands, now that I'm out of work. So it's GAME ON!!!
