    Exclamation World Championship of eSports 2019

    Hi all Gamers World Wide,

    I hope you are all well, and ready to play in the World Arcade Championship of eSports for 2019. Further details are below.

    The gamer with the highest total competition score over the tournaments MGL39, MGL40, MGL41 and MGL42 will be the World Champion of eSports for 2019. This is a tough 32 weeks with 36 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.

    In January 2020, the World Champion will win, as well as the prestigious and undisputed title of World Champion of eSports for 2019, 410 USD in cash. 2nd place will win 160 USD, 3rd place will win 120 USD, 4th place will win 115 USD, 5th place will win 110 USD, 6th place will win 105 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 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 CAG memorabilia. For example in MGL39, there will be 4 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 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.

    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.

    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 will be combined with scores from to form the world championship scoreboard.

    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:
    Compared to last season, 6 changes have been made.
    1. 36 different games will be played this season, compared to 33 different games last season, an increase of 3 games.
    2. Each MGL will have 9 different games, compared to 8, 8, 8 and 9 respectively last season.
    3. In previous competitions, the last game in the MGL is released with 17 days to go. To improve the gamer engagement and the excitement of the competition, 2 games will now be launched with 17 days to go.
    4. Due to the change in point 3, the new season will be 32 weeks compared to 33 weeks in last season, or 1 week shorter.
    5. The prize money has been increased for all placings this season.
    6. An additional prize has been created so that 7th place will now receive 100 USD. Last season prizes were awarded from 1st to 6th place.

    Further details will be posted at the launch of each MGL. Good gaming and good luck to all competitors.
