    MGLXXXVIII - Arcade Pick Six - RULES - NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED

    Hi Gamers,

    Welcome to MGLXXXVIII and the World Arcade Gaming League. This tournament is the 4th and final quarter of the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OF ESPORTS for 2018. All gamers worldwide are welcome to game, no matter whether you are a newbie, novice or pro, you can join in at any time. We are looking for gamers with the courage and tenacity to be challenged in the world arena.

    Please watch the Trailer below for important details ...



    Competition:
    The gamer with the highest points in this tournament will be the MGLXXXVIII champion. There will be 9 games played over 9 weeks, released one week at a time, competing world wide on the most challenging and toughest video games of all time. Games are only open for 17 days each, so gamers must play their best in that time and post their scores before the game is closed. At the end of each MGL, points will be accumulated for each gamer toward the World Championship of eSports Scoreboard. The highest score after the four MGLs are completed will be the undisputed World Champion of eSports for 2018.

    Prizes:
    Every gamer that plays all of the games has the chance to win the mystery prize. So if there are 9 games and you play and submit for all 9, 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 arcade memorabilia. In MGLXXXVIII, the mystery prize will be 4 x 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. 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. For example, if two players tie for 18th place in the world, then whoever has scored higher per game on a head to head basis will earn 18th place and the other gamer will earn 19th place. If there is a tie also on head to head game count, the gamer who has the highest accumulated game score points will be the winner.

    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 in MGLXXXVIII is in the Trailer. 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 duplications of nominations will not be placed in the pool. The order of game play will be determined by the Gamemaster and each game will be released weekly for competition.

    If you would like to nominate games and have a say in what is played, please send them by private message (PM) to OOO by midnight Sydney time on Thursday 29-Nov-18. The number of games you can nominate are in the Trailer. The first two games will commence on Friday 30-Nov-18.

    The following games are excluded from MGLXXXVIII and cannot be nominated: Amidar, Astro Blaster, Bank Panic, BurgerTime, Commando, Crazy Kong, Flying Shark, Food Fight, Future Spy, Galaga, Jumping Jack, Kangaroo, Mario Bros, Mr Do!’s Castle, Polaris, Punch-Out!!, Spatter, The Speed Rumbler, Rastan, Road Fighter, Time Tunnel, Track & Field, Wonder Boy and Zoo Keeper.

    Settings:
    The game settings will be posted in each game thread 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.

    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 showing 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 you can are all highly encouraged. As all members at AA are registered, there is no additional registration process for the championships.

    Good gaming and good luck to all competitors.

    The speech synthesis is from Leonard Nimoy in the SEGA game of Star Trek. A very good vector game too, which uses a paddle control.

    Will definitely be in this time. Between my two cabs I should be able to play most titles only hitch being I will probably only be able to spare an hour or so a week. I’ll just have to make every game count

    One of my favs - I should have gotten that!
    I recently bought one of those 1up cabinets that has a spinner. I really just wanted it for Tempest but will likely hack it at some point to play Star Trek.

    Welcome Aboard Captain.

    I used to play the sit down version of that in the Contemporary Hotel Arcade in WALT DISNEY WORLD which is the same arcade I used to play the Environmental version of Discs of Tron.

    The only time I've visited Disney World we stayed at the Contemporary Hotel. It was sometime between 1988-1989. I was only 11 or 12 years old at the time, but I do remember stopping by the Arcade there a few times and for some reason I remember playing Rastan, which was a pretty new game at the time. I believe it came out in 1987. Funny enough I didn't enjoy that game then, and don't enjoy it now.

    So you remembered playing it cause you didn't like it ? c'mon Creech we all know you've secretly been dreaming of playing Rastan again since you were 11
