I'm considering two different ways of distributing RIVALs to people who haven't challenged/been challenged.
1) Look up all of the entrants' scores on Hi Scores and sort into tiers, then distribute RIVALs randomly within said tiers (keeps the rivalry "fair" and competitive)
2) Distribute RIVALs randomly between all entrants (less effort, encourages weaker players to play more/practice harder)

Let me know what you guys think is the best way.

winner receives a picture of trap15 dressed as a trap. It makes sense.

I like the tiers idea, though it's obviously a lot more work for you.

I'm half tempted to call out dunpeal as my rival, but if you use the tiered system I'm curious who I'd end up with.

Nope! First off, Ketsui's terrible for a 1-week competition, and secondly, Ketsui's kinda mediocre, especially in comparison with the games I picked :wink:

Tiers would be preferable, but I'm not sure if all the low-tier people have records in the Hi Scores board. I myself only have records on Restart Syndrome, though my records there should be enough to place me at low tier.

Just distribute them randomly or else you're going to go insane trying to sort it all out. I mean, look at the number of people who have entered who might not even have scores for that particular game. You'd end up messing up tiers in some people's opinions and then people are going to start bitching about it and blah blah blah.

I'm looking forward to kicking your ass at your own games. /shittalkingthatwillendwithmyfootinmymouth

Hey, that leaves room for one person to challenge you both, right? 8)

MAME is intermittently giving me shit, so there's a chance I might need to drop out if it starts hating me. However, I'm totally down for this otherwise.

I don't intend to check for specific games, I mean overall. And I don't care if people bitch, because I'm The Supreme Leader and I don't take no shit :wink:

Anyways, I think I'll try both, and see what the results look like. Definitely leaning towards the first one.

Hmm....I might join, but there's a problem I might have: Finding roms that'll work on my current ShmupMame is a REAL bitch, and as of right now I only have three games on my laptop-Donpatchi, Dodonpatchi, and Guwange...and I don't own any PCB's to speak of...so if a game I don't have pops up for that week's tourny; I'm out for that round >_<...

Though I can see how many I have my Desktop-chances are I may be lacking in certain games.

However, I'm still game for a challenge...if that's no problem with you, trap15...consider me SIGNED! :twisted:

Maybe get a recent MAME so you don't have that problem :roll:

Updated the lists.

I'll join!

But 1) I don't have time to play anything until the 1st of November, 2) I refuse to play Garegga and 3) if I don't enjoy a week, I demand my money back.

I'll join and I promise I won't do falsification again. This seems like it could be fun. I like the idea of rivalry's and no teams. I only have to focus on beating one guy's score instead of like a bunch of people's.

I'm not hyped for the games that may be in the tournament but feel like I have enough spare time to kill (along with fighting games and other stuff), so please sign me in (and watch me put probably even less effort than in SotMs because Dangun Feveron with bomb type is hurd and the 3rd boss is hurd and I need to stop procrastinating and watch replays)
