Shoot Em Up Tournament || Open for Sign-Up !

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 .... ;)

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.

This contest is going to be a multi-website contest. There will be a thread of our contest at each of these 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, marp etc...)
However...GameEx is the place where the tournament standings and additional info will be made public !!

When does this contest start...?
The contest will start at January 6th 2014 11:59 gmt time. This will allow us to "recruit" as many players as possible. The more the merrier :)
Every contestant will receive a PM-reminder when the contest is about to start.

Feel free to leave a reply or send a PM when you want to join our shoot em up contest !!

Thank you,

GimmeClassics - I'll be the one giving you the info about this contest at GameEx and will take care of the layout and structure of the tournament
Wolfman24 - As initiator of this contest he'll be the one keeping track of each submission and co-organizes the tournament structure and standings

did you make a thread at shmups.system11.org? they haven't had stgt this year, and while some other folks are trying to do their own thing, i think they'd appreciate this too. you're shooting for a good late date, so the little tourney they're running now should be over by then, though people will probably be bothered by shotgunning tourneys.

either way, i'm definitely taking a look at this. is this just arcade games or console games or pc games or what?

should probably join gameex and have a look at the high scores section, too... might be just what i've been looking for all these years

this is going to be the game list in no order

Seeder rounds:
Gradius
Salamander
Flying Shark

Main rounds:
Dodonpachi Daioujou (or dodonpachi if too many people can't run it full speed)
Mahou Daisakusen
19XX The War Against Destiny
Darius
R-Type II
RayForce
Super Cobra
Gokujou Parodius/ sexy Parodius
obligatory Battle Garegga/Batrider

the four options for double eliminations is going to be
1.all teams in 1 bracket
2. all teams split in 2 brackets
3. all teams split in 4 brackets
4. set number of teams in 1 bracket

i am either going to go with option 2 or 3 since i am not a fan of 4
