Hello everyone, Welcome to MGLLII - A Fist Full Of Quarters, the 2nd video game tournament of the 2022 season. All gamers are welcome to compete in MGL52 and can join in at any time. Please watch the trailer below for the official tournament launch with important competition details Competition: The gamer with the most points in this tournament will be the MGL52 champion. There will be 11 games played over 8 weeks, competing world wide on the most challenging and toughest video games of all time. 3 games will be released at the start, then 1 game each week, except 2 games after weeks 2, 4 and 6. 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 2022. Points system: The incremental points 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 1995, where trackball, steering wheel and dual stick games can be nominated. The number of games that can be nominated by each competitor in MGL52 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 PM (private message) to Evan by Monday 13th June @12:00am UTC+1. The number of games that can be nominated is in the trailer. The first 3 games will begin on Thursday 16th June All games from MGL46, MGL47, MGL48, MGL49, MGL50 and MGL51 are excluded from MGL52.
