I should do well in POW and KLAX.

Galaga is one of my favorite arcade shooters but I suck at it.

 

I've never played POW, I might try it out sometime this week. I've done okay at Klax in the past. It's one of the few puzzle games that I actually like.

Expect Deafcode to break KLAX very easily. You get millions of points from big combos. We'll be competing for second place.

POW is a lot of fun and not too difficult for anyone decent at NES beat em ups. You should do fine.

So here's the tournament details you have been waiting for:

The top 16 will be qualified and invited to the tournament.
The tournament will have three rounds, with the first two rounds being single elimination.
The players will be seeded accordingly to their final standing at the leaderboard and will be paired in the following way:

  • Bracket 1: 1st place vs 16th place
  • Bracket 2: 2nd place vs 15th place
  • Bracket 3: 3rd place vs 14th place
  • Bracket 4: 4th place vs 13th place
  • Bracket 5: 5th place vs 12th place
  • Bracket 6: 6th place vs 11th place
  • Bracket 7: 7th place vs 10th place
  • Bracket 8: 8th place vs 9th place

The top seeded player will pick the game the pair will play out of a set of four games we will supply. Each game will only be allowed to be picked twice. Expect obscure Famicom games.

The second round will be like this:

  • Winner of bracket 1 vs winner of bracket 8
  • Winner of bracket 2 vs winner of bracket 7
  • Winner of bracket 3 vs winner of bracket 6
  • Winner of bracket 4 vs winner of bracket 5

The top seeded player will pick the game the pair will play out of a set of two games we will supply. Each game will only be allowed to be picked twice.

The winners advance to the grand final where the winner will be decided.
The players will have to play 2 games that we will pick. And it will be MEAN games!

I played some POW earlier. It's a little rough, but seems like a decent game overall. I finished 2nd in the 2015 Klax contest, but @Red doubled my score and won handily.

We literally BROKE Klax the last time it was played.
And breaking it will be needed to secure the 1st place this time around with the mean, evil rules I have in store for it.

A puzzle contest with evil rules? I might be lucky to hit the participation score!

It's everything I've always wanted!  Well, maybe a few too many participants, but hey, the more the merrier, I guess.  I just hope whoever comes in 16th is still around and participating, because that's about the only real concern when the chariot swings that low...

I believe it's mentioned somewhere that qualifying gamers are contacted, so if they don't confirm, I presume they go to 17, 18, etc, until they can fill out the 16 player bracket.

I was wondering that too. If players drop out do their opponents get a bye or does the format get redone for the top 10, 12, etc?

I think they just go further down the list until finding people who want to compete.

Hopefully the standings hold up since I would play @mbd39 in the first round. It has to be pretty likely that either of us would pick a beat em up game.

I'm actually pretty terrible at the Turtles games. But I'd pick any other beat em up.

Speak for yourself.  I'd be up against @0xDEAFC0DE, who would be almost guaranteed to pick a puzzle game.  But then, if I can get a few participation points, I'll climb a bit into a more favourable position 😛

He's definitely someone I don't want matched up against for that very reason.

You will have to pick a game out of the list I will supply. You all drank some serious shit if you're thinking games like Double Dragon, Turtles, Super Mario and the likes will be there in the list.

So it's probably going to be Urban Champion or something then.

Yeah.  Maybe we can convince @BeaIank to leave puzzle and sports games out of the pool?  Naw, that'd be unfair too.

Right?  Those are definitely games you want to have in the main competition, not the tourney.  The tourney needs to be TOUGH games.

Also, I pity the fool who willingly plays The Punisher against me 😛
