Is there a organizer?
I am against prizes, because we use different consoles and that changes the difficulty of many games a lot, not to mention the problem to spot cheats in some games. Its not compelling to cheat in a fun-challenge, but we had cheaters in other challenges like the Christmas-Challenge.
What I would like: Clear rules and a fair score-system. The last one wasnt fair, because it had not rewarded good results. The winner got 10 points, 2nd place got 9 points, even if the winner had twice as much points in the game. This led to pretty questionable situations when I won nearly all rounds and got catched because I sucked at one single game. The performance in so many games was useless because of one single round. It seems not fair for me and especially since its about fun, this spoiled the fun for me, because I am a very competitive player. I completely understand that many can't understand my point of view.
Here my suggestions:
- Before we start we determine a number of rounds and we play exactly that many rounds
- no multiple points games
- old formula 1 point system (10 for 1st, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd, 3 for 4th, 2 for 5th and 1 for every participant behind that)
- fair rules for every game (because not every game is qualified to be a highscore-game, like Tropical Trouble, where its a more impressive performance to go as far as you can with a low score)
