*** The Ultimate Ghouls Vote ***

Post by Gameboy9 » Tue Jan 29, 2002 12:30 pm

Alright - I'm going to place three motions on the table(the first one split into two), and for each motion, all in favor will signify by saying "aye" - all opposed will signify by saying "no". This vote will expire on February 5, 2001 at 2359 GMT.<p>

a1) If you finish the game, you recieve (100,000 * (8 - lives lost)) points / life left over.

<p>

a2) 1,000,000 points instead of 100,000

<p>

b) Any extra loops don't count toward the final score. If you beat Lucifer, you get the 10,000 points(right?) for beating Lucifer plus, if A is passed, the extra life bonus.

<p>

c) If you repeat more than twice, the score ends there regardless of beating Lucifer and no extra life bonus.

<p>

There. Have fun. I vote aye for a1, no for a2, no for b, and aye for c. GB9

I think we should just count the score you have at the end of 2nd
loop. It will be just like many other games, spending all but last
life leeching points in the best place for that and then finishing
the game (seeing 7/8 lifes spent on leeching would be boring, but
less than seeing a whole day lasting inp)

<p>

Comunque complimenti Michele, anche se non ho il coraggio di guardare
il tuo salvataggio ;-))))

OK... then what's your vote, essekappa? C with a variation gets the
aye and everyone else gets the no? GB9

I think add score for a game isn't in the spirit of any game. Score
is the one we made on such or such game. No bonus points at all if
they're not in a game yet. It's valuable for Ghouls and any other
game.
<p>

I vote 'yes' for b and 'no' for the others.

<p>

There no extra life bonus at the end of the game ;-)

<p>

Also, I think any ranking must be made by stage reach then by score,
but its another matter and I'll not impose this rule here.

I vote aye for a2. Not sure about the others yet! Should extra loops
count if you still beat lucifer?

A1, A2: no. B: aye. C: no.
<p>

Note that in case only C should pass, then there would be no reason
to finish the game anymore, as a couple of loops award more points
than going straight to lucifer and beat him... Do you really want
this? I thought that finishing a game was an essential and
universal prerequisite when it comes to mastering games...

OK, here's how I understand C - if you do two loops then beat
lucifer, then you win with the bonus - but if you go to the third
loop, then it's an automatic game over after the 2nd stage 5 loop.
In other words, you do loop 2 - stage 5 once, you can loop one more
time, then you must beat lucifer or your game is over.

<p>

Did everyone understand motion C correctly? GB9

I think you're confusing the issue by saying "repeat more than
twice." Only 2-5 repeats, so change C) to "if you repeat 2-5, score
ends there, no bonus."

Note that if we avoid A1 or A2 (I mean bonus for a finished game),
voting B or C prevents us from leeching on last round, but not for
leeching on other rounds !
For example Michele who can finished the game in 1 life could easily
almost complete 7 or 8 times a previous level and let himself die at
the end of this level before finishing the game on the last life

<p>

Just to be sure all voting people is aware about that ...

<p>

I'm like Michele ; I'm dreaming of a perfect inp completing this game
in 1 life without leeching, that's all ; this experimental search of a
good scoring is an interesting debate indeed
