Wolfman and me (GimmeClassics) are going to be holding a high score tournament for Shoot Em Up fans starting next year !

Please allow us to tell you something about our contest and how you can join us...

Tag Team contest
This competition is going to be a team contest. You can either sign up by yourself and get paired up or sign up with a team mate.
Just leave a reply or send a PM to one of us when you want to join our competition !!
We have a list of all players at the end of this post. It will be updated with every new entry.

 

The games which will be part of this contest will remain a suprise for now .... wink.png

Rules and additional info
It's going to be a double elimination tournament with 3 rounds for seeding. All players will play the same game each round.
Each round lasts a week.

1. Rounds for seeding
We'll have 3 rounds for seeding. So you'll be playing 3 games with your team mate and your score and your team mates score gets added together. The amount of contestants will determine how many points you will get. With 30 contestants the best team will get 30 points and last gets 1 point.
Comparing all the team scores will rank each team for the double elimination tournament.

2. Double elimination brackets
After the seeding rounds it's going to be a double-elimination tournament. The highest ranked team plays the lowest ranked team, the second highest ranked team plays the second lowest ranked team and so on. When there are an odd number of teams in the tournament the highest seeds receive "byes".
Each team begins in the winner’s bracket, but with one loss, goes into a loser’s bracket, where they will have to play their way back. All competitors will have the oppurtunity to play at least twice.

Gradius[/size]

Salamander[/size]

I’m trying really hard not to be a whiner here, but with hundreds of games to pick from, why choose two that are essentially the same?

Wolfman and I (GimmeClassics) are going to be holding a high score tournament for Shoot Em Up fans !


When does this contest start and how can I join ?

The contest will start at January 6th 2014 11:59 gmt time


This competition is going to be a team contest. You can either sign up by yourself and get paired up or sign up with a team mate.

Just leave a reply or send a PM to one of us when you want to join our competition !!

We have a list of all players at the end of this post.


Tournament setup and games

It's going to be a double elimination tournament after 3 rounds of seeding. During the seeding rounds all contestants will play the same game

(1 round = 1 week).


# submitting your hi-score: this contest is going to be a multi-website contest. There will be a thread of our contest at each of those websites.

We wanted to create a contest which is very easy to join. Therefore each player can submit his of her score on the website of their choice: gameex.info, retrouprising.com, shmups.system11.org, atariage.com and retrogamer.net


Just post a screenshot of your score at the forum of your choice or play your game at RetroUprising.


GameEx is the place where the tournament standings and additional info will be made public !!


# point scoring system: your score and your team mate score gets added together. The amount of contestants will determine how many points you will get. Example: if you and your team mate have the 3rd and 4th best score at round 1 with a total number of 40 contestants you'll get 38 + 37 = 75 points.


Comparing all the team scores after 3 rounds of seeding will rank each team for the double elimination tournament. Only the top 24 ranked teams will qualify for the double elimination tournament !!


Double Elimination tournament > each team begins in the winner’s bracket, but with one loss, goes into a loser’s bracket, where they will have to play their way back. All competitors will have the oppurtunity to play at least twice during the elimination phase.


# Games [please play at default settings]

Week 1 (seeding round 1) = Salamander (version D) > romset = salamand

Week 2 (seeding round 2) = Gradius (Japan) > romset = gradius

Week 3 (seeding round 3) = Flying Shark (World) > romset = fshark


Week 4, 5, 6 etc.: the double elimination tournament will start in week 4. The 8 highest seeded teams will receive a bye for week 4.

After the seeding rounds we will publish the game each team has to play each round. This depends on your rank after the seeding rounds and whether or not staying in the winners bracket or having to fight (...eh play) your way back in the loser's bracket.


The double elimination round games will be - in no particular order:

Armed Police Batrider (Japan, B version) > romset = batriderj

Gunlock (Ver 2.30) > romset = gunlock

Mahou Daisakussen (Japan) > romset = mahoudai

19XX The War Against Destiny (Japan 951225) > romset = 19xxj

Darius (Japan) > romset = dariusj

Sexy Parodius (ver JAA) > romset = sexyparo

1945k III > romset = 1945kiii

Dodonpachi (Japan) > romset = ddonpachj

Super Cobra > romset = scobra [= possible extra game 1]

R-Type II (Japan) > romset = rtype2j [= possible extra game 2]


Again: we will publish the game each team has to play during the double elimination phase.


# A few other rules...

* autofire is allowed

* controller usage is allowed

* continues not allowed

* no cheats or hacks

* ...and most important: have fun !!
