MGLLI - ARCADE CLIFF HANGER - WORLD COMPETITION


Recommended Posts

 

Hi Gamers,

Welcome to MGL51 - ARCADE CLIFF HANGER the 1st video game tournament of 2022, all gamers around the world are welcome to play and can join in at any time.

Please watch the trailer above with important competition details

Competition:

The gamer with the most points in this tournament will be the MGL51 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 MGL51 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 Sunday 27th March @8:00am UTC. The number of games that can be nominated is in the trailer. The first 3 games will begin on Friday 1st April

All games from MGL47, MGL48, MGL49 and MGL50 are excluded from MGL51. Those games cannot be nominated.

 

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 stitching of inp files from save states. No cheats allowed.

Any WolfMAME version can be used. Only the version 0.183 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 or INP if possible 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

 

Both causal and professional gamers do not have to choose which games they want to play, Gamers do not need to nominate games to play, they can join in at any time Friendly banter in the gaming community is encouraged, as is streaming games and posting/sharing tips. Attempting new personal bests, learning new skills, and playing to the best of one's ability are all highly encouraged. There is no need to register for the championships because all AA members are already registered.

Special thanks to @OOO for the MGL51 banner artwork 

Good luck everyone,

Evan

Hello, everyone

Thank you for your nominations, your selections include some fantastic titles.

The nominations are now closed, and the secret draw and sequential order process will begin.

It's all excellent fun, and I'm curious as to what games will be played.

It'll be game time soon.

Aww crap I thought it was 8pm UTC, was just going to put in my noms, oh well.

I’m on holidays for the next 5 weeks so I won’t be able to put in as much time as I’d like. I’ll be making do with my laptop keyboard instead of my custom controller which will be a new experience.

good luck to everyone

Hmm. Looks like we're starting a little earlier than listed in the official post. "The first 3 games will begin on Friday 1st April". 

All groovy - hopefully sneak some games in this week. Welcome back and good gaming everyone. 🙂

I'll have a pretty busy week next week so I just released them early, on the plus side more time to game 🙂
