Crap Tournament XI!

Post by Barra »

Crap Tournament 11 is now open for registration!

The Crap Tournament is a yearly MAME competition where all the titles are selected based on their relative obscurity or overall lousiness.

Every year brings in new pure crap and some hidden gems - you'll play some of the worst games ever made, and discover some amazing titles you never would've played without the tournament.

The games are hilarious, but the competition is fierce. Think you're a true gamer? Come prove it in the Crap Arena.

The tournament will last 10 days, stretching over 2 weekends, beginning May 9th at 9:00 PM Pacific and ending May 19th at 8:59 PM Pacific. This is a hard cutoff. All scores must be submitted by 8:59 PM Pacific on May 19th.

The tournament will consist of 12 games, none of which will be announced until moments before the tournament start. Of these 12 games, 10 will be announced at the start of the tournament, while the remaining 2 will only be announced at the beginning of the closing weekend (May 17th). Proper game settings will be detailed for each title.

The scoring format is simple: 12 points for first on any given title, 11 points for 2nd,... 1 point for 12th, and points are only awarded for places 1 through 12. Thus, a perfect score for this tournament would be 144, regardless of the number of participants, and it's entirely possible to accumulate 0 points despite submitting a score for every game. In other words, the competition will be rough, and the winner will be the player who is the best all-around crapper.

Once the tournament officially starts, an easy submission process, live updating standings for each game, and an overall leader board will become visible.

All submissions must provide either an INP or link to a Twitch stream highlight.
WolfMAME 0.183 and 0.209 are the only acceptable MAME versions for this competition. If a player has cab access to one of the Crap titles they are of course welcome to play on the original hardware.

General tournament rules still apply: For MAME, no autofire, no pausing, no continues, and average recorded speed must be 95% - 101%
All scores must be submitted within 24 hours of when they were achieved.
In case of ties, first submission takes priority.

Get yer Crap on!
