    Exclamation MGL 26 - Call for nominations

    It's on again, MGL 26 is about to start up so adjust your buttons and warm up your joysticks.

    OOO has taken a well earned break from MGL admin duties and I've volunteered to run a couple. They're big shoes to fill, but I'll do my best. Hopefully OOO will play all games now and give out a few lessons.

    I'll keep what I reckon are the best parts of how it runs and maybe make a few adjustments along the way. All feedback is encouraged and suggestions welcome.

    For MGL 26 what we'll do is;
    • - 8 games as usual
    • - Games start Fri night and conclude sunday night 7pm Sydney time three weekends later
    • - 1 week overlap in games, so new game every fri and so two or three games on the run to give us a choice
    • - percentage scoring system


    Nominations - let's go back to player noms for a bit of a change
    • - hidden noms by pm to me. Note my handle is Fire_Power with the underscore
    • - hidden nominations for some surprise, so don't go announcing on here what you've picked, but feel free to say you're in
    • - nominate four different games
    • - single nomination per game, so you can't place three votes for "Super Craptastic V2.7"
    • - no restriction on plays in prior MGL, but normal MGL rules - single joystick, max 3 buttons, no spinner etc
    • - at completion of comp I'll list all the game nominations


    Selection process
    • - a mixture of popular and random
    • - Four will be selected by popularity, any ties will picked by random from the tied group
    • - once the popularity selections are sorted I'll discard the remaining nominations of anyone who has had a game selected then
    • - Four will be selected by random from the remaining nominations
    • - we'll alternate between playing popular, then random


    Dates;
    Nominations to me by midnight thursday 20 August
    First game will be released Friday 21 August and finish 7pm Sunday 6 Sep

    Here's a link to MGL rules for anyone needing clarification, or just ask

    It's a fun comp, so let's play it that way.

    Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

    I took what he said as meaning anything was available to be nominated. But good question.

    I've nominated my four games, none of which have been played for a little while in MGL. Not sure how much time I'll get to play, not overly worried if none of my games come up - even with all the horrible games that come up, occasionally a gem is produced that I've never heard of and that is probably better than getting one of my games played that almost everyone would have played

    My nominations are in. I doubt any of them will get up in the popular section as I don't think any of them are popular

    For this round there's no restriction on nominating what has come up in previous rounds. I didn't think any of the last few were likely to have hit anyone's all time fav list - but ya never know.

    Noms are coming, thanks for that - I'm seeing a mixture of classics and some, for me, never heard off potential gems.
    I'm hoping the selection process will give everyone a fair chance of getting either a game they like or one of their own and still provide exposure to new ones.

    For the next round we'll have a quite different selection method <secret for now >

    Please get you noms in by this Thursday evening and game play will start on Friday,

    @Fire_Power can you come up with an official name for this selection process so that in future I can say how about we run with X again for the upcoming MGL and then I can link to a sticky explaining it. That would be heaps better than subjecting everyone to me waffling on about it again and again
