    MGL 21 - Call for ideas ... [CLOSED]



    Dear Great AAers,

    Including those around the world and a special welcome to anyone who wants to join the fun and the challenge ?

    MGL 21 will start on Friday 2/5.
    Nominations will open on Sunday 27/4 and will close on Thursday 1/5 at 10pm.
    However from today until Saturday next week, 26/4, I would like to ask you what changes, if any, would you like for MGL 21?

    Here are some discussion points:

    1. MGLs are 8 games over 9 weeks. Scoring is the percentage system so everyone scores points and you can score more for any improved score.

    2. We played hidden favourites in the last MGL. Players nominate games by PM to the MGL organizer and the games with the most votes are selected for play.

    3. Games from the last 2 years are excluded from nomination. This was to prevent the same games coming up every 6 x MGLs and encourage new games to be played.

    4. With the exclusion rule, in the last 2 x MGLs, there were 2 new games in each tournament that were never played before. So 1 in 4 games.

    5. Rat brought up the topic of whether players should be able to look at inp files, live streams and read up on strategies for the games. There is no current rule regarding this point and therefore it is currently allowed.

    6. Some players have expressed not to ask for hints in the first week.

    Please post your feedback in this thread by Saturday next week 26/4 10pm.
    Any questions or thoughts, just post in this thread.



    PS1: The MGL 21 banner celebrates a very strange cartoon in Popeye which was made into an arcade game by Nintendo.
    A conversion for Donkey Kong, Popeye loves spinach, Olive ? and the arcade ?

    PS2: And here are the trophies for MGL 21, in honour of the Mr Do sequel, Mr Do?s Castle, also known as Mr Do vs the Unicorns ?

    How about we nominate as per normal but only the games with the least votes get picked?

    MGL 21 starts on 2/5 ... that's 26 days ... more than 3 weeks ... almost one month ...

    The arcade never closes ... there are games to be played ... from a choice of hundreds ...

    Games with least votes, there would be a large amount with 1 vote each. They could then be randomly drawn? Also, each person has max of 1 (or 2) of their games make it in.
    Or we could have games that have never been in an MGL (well as far as we can tell)

    Never been in before sounds ok, or selected from one vote only which just about makes it back to random draw from noms.
    Maybe maze followed by shooter followed by platform or some pattern of forced variety?
    Maybe all from one year or one from '78, then '79, '80 etc

    I wouldn't mind this idea. My vote would be for '82 or '84.

    Isn't 26 days enough time for you to finish your cab? ...
