      Some meaningless stats from the last MGL

      **A lot of player are registered at both sites, but for the purpose of this (yes pointless, no pintless (yes Schooners only at this pint) post I've quoted players registered at AA)) (Did I get the brackets right?)

      65 Players - 42 AA/ 22 TG
      Top 10 - 6 AA/ 4 TG
      Top 30 - 28 AA/ 8 TG
      30th place to 65th place - 20 AA/ 15 TG
      Bottom 15 - 6 AA/ 9 TG

      Competed in All Games - 31
      23 AA
      8 TG
      Competed in 4 games or less
      TG 9
      AA 5

      Most Popular letter that player names start with: 'B' with 9
      Most unusual letter that player names start with: 'E','H',"I','L' and 'V' all with 1

      This next bit is subjective

      Coolest User name Foot, Galaga God and Agent Smith
      Most boring user name @Brad and mmm, nope just Brad

      Whats it all mean? Well nothing but looks like:

      AA's still feeling the Love - well done to those who did join up to post scores and chat
      Majority of people like to play games regardless of the games settings and enjoy the current format

      Personally
      I'll still play in this CAG comp and if the new SAG League comp starts I'll play in it too (BTW that's the Sh%ts and giggles League)
      I dont like .inps but whatever (I'm lazy)
      Facebook stuff should have an AA link as well in future.
      OOO does a great job
      It's just gaming, peace out

      I'll take questions after a short break, Im off to get a refill

      Just my opinion, and would love to hear more opinions.
      +1 vote here, I would join the casual comp too

      Sorry to have upset you @John73 I think you are a good bloke and passionate about retro as we all are and I hope to share a beer with you one day

      Yes I say it as I see it but I hoped it would be interpreted as Jed has and not as unnecessary trolling which is not my intent.

      OOO has created a great big new comp, someone else wants to run a dodgy old MGL like it was and others want that also, win win, that's all.

      LOL @Foot

      I REALLY lose interest if there are 2 games in a row I loathe. That combined with me being away for the last few weeks made it pointless for me to continue. Haven't read all the "crap" in this message, too much to do in Greece at the moment.

      Lets make an effort to get MLG players on AA. If somebody has trouble making an account let me know and I'll fix it, hell for MGL members I'll even bump their account from Newbies to full Members.

      Secondly I'll do what I can to keep everybody happy. There's NO reason why a second old school AA comp can't be run just as long as
      1.We have somebody who want to put the time into running it
      2.The numbers are there to make the effort worthwhile.

      Perhaps an easy way to do it would be to strip the old school MGL down and not have leader boards etc, some other forums just have a "Game of the Week" thread that people post in. I think that would make it much easier to run, at the end of the week (or month whatever) the three highest scores are acknowledged and we move on to the next game, no over all leader board to maintain. This would also give it a point of difference to the "World" comp and would not have the two comps in competition of each other.

      The Future of the MGL

      Just have two divisions in the current competition. Pro and casual. Pro have to play on specified dips, with INPs etc. casual can do screenshots and play whatever dips they want.

      I'll add my two cents... even though it's not needed.

      Firstly, OOO does a fantastic job (no one seems to disagree with that nor should they). He does well in encouraging people to push harder and play more as well as all the obvious and other not so obvious things. People in general don't ever appreciate how much time things take to do and take everything offered for granted. OOO spends plenty of time making the MGL run so smoothly. I'd love for him to play and submit scores, even if he smashes me (plenty of others do that anyway).

      I was drawn to the MGL as I could just submit screen shots/photos and that is why I still play (although I do go AWOL from time to time). I hope to be able to keep playing submitting scores in this manner as I am not set up for INP recording etc.

      Do I care if people cheat, well yes, but I am not going to lose sleep over it as I am not competitive enough to win. Although if I was good enough to win a game and lost to a cheater then I'd be disappointed but that isn't likely.

      In many cases I don't know the difference between default and TG settings as I don't know the games well enough. I liked the TG settings for Track and Field as it was a marathon but made it important to get each discipline correct to maximise score. Other games I'd prefer personally not to have to change as I am lazy and it means connecting a keyboard to my cabinet that isn't usually there.

      A quick note on people not wanting to run the MGL, I think I was around when John73 wasn't able to continue but I was new and intimidated with the task at hand of running a competition that was already (in my mind) setting high standards. I didn't want to let anyone down. Having said that, I would have taken over rather than letting it die but I have no doubt, I would not have done as good a job as what those before me had done or as good as what OOO has done.

      I love the MGL. I love the banter and learning new games. Are there things I'd like to see being done differently, of course, but it's not up to me and I'm happy following along.

      And this is all that's being suggested, It's been put forward before, the idea of a 'minor league' mgl to be run in tandem with the big leagues.

      Plenty of players, me included, dont give a rats arse (scuse me rat) about twin galaxies, their settings, or getting world records (or even caring what the world records are. ) That's where a 'minor league mgl' can pop up and fill a gap, for players who are after a smaller comp, not as often, and at easier settings.

      We've already had an offer to run it, and I'd be happy to help out if needed.
