Welcome to The Kongregator Klash!

That’s right, I’m hosting another one of these things. It will definitely be better than my first two, which is difficult to accomplish, but it will happen.

First of all, yes, this is a qualifier for the tourney, but it is also a poll. The set-up of this tourney is currently undecided. So I am will be having you guys vote in thread for what kind of tourney you want this to be. The option that receives the most amount of votes will be the set-up that I will use for the tourney. I want you guys to be happy and have fun competing. The options will be posted in the post below this one.

Anyways, back to the actual qualifier. There is no limit to how many people can qualify for this. However, there is a six days and 21 hours and 12 minutes deadline for qualifying. I have made the qualifier really difficult so only the best of the best gamers can compete. The qualifier of this game is Easiest Game Ever! You must complete the whole entire game in order to qualify.

Normally, for your score to be counted, you need to post a screenshot of your end game screen, which includes your name in the top right of the game panel along side the green plug(or yellow plug, I guess), the game window, and the “High Score” section of the highscores tab. Any editing of the screenshot is not allowed. The score must be achieved during the given round. However, since this game does not have a high scores table, a screen shot of the end game screen with the chat is allowed for this qualifying round only.

You must also answer the poll in order to be considered as qualified.

Here is an example screenshot:

Before you go qualify, some things to take note of:
-No alts will be allowed. If it is found out that an alt is being used, both the alt and main will be DQ’d from this tourney.
-This tournament will likely run for about a month and a half, give or take two weeks.It may take longer or shorter based on how smoothly things actually happen and by what set up you guys choose to have.
-Cheating will not be looked kindly upon, and if solid proof of such action is found, the violator will find themselves removed from the competition. Forcibly by force.
-If you think you have found proof of someone cheating or a glitch/bug, Do not say so in this thread. Instead, whisper me Include proof and I’ll look into it.
-If you do not report a glitch to me that you have used, you may be DQ’d
-At any point during this competition I can ask anyone for video proof of a score. This must be provided or possible disqualification may occur.

Here’s the speadsheet for this thingy!

This qualifier will end on Wednesday, November 13th, 2013, at 9:00PM EST.

Set-Up Poll

Ok, so basically I want you guys to be happy and I don’t want to force you to compete in a tourney with a boring set-up or a set-up that isn’t well liked. So, here are the options of different set-ups:

Option 1: This is the traditional Kongregate tourney set-up. After everyone qualifies, in each round the X number of people who score the lowest in a certain game or a combination of games get eliminated. After a certain number of rounds, which will be determined by how many people sign up, a final will be held with 2-5 people left in which there will be 3 or so games and the competitor to do best in the three games wins.

Option 2: This is a double elimination head to head tournament set-up. After the qualifying, there will be around 5 games for everyone to play. For each game, a player will receive a certain amount of points corresponding to how well they ranked in that certain game. The points for all 5 games will be added up and the top 32 or 64 players will receive a rank (depending on how many people qualify) Then, these players will be played in a double elimination bracket. The tournament will progress and the final person standing will win. (This was the set-up I was leaning towards, but I didn’t know how well it would be received)

Option 3: This is a points competition set-up. Similarly to Option 2, all of the competitors will be competing in a certain number of games, and they will receive a certain number of points based on their ranking in each game. The player with the most amount of points after all the games will be the winner. This set-up is similar to BestMte’s Rise and Fall, except without teams.

Option 4: This is a “beat the average” set-up. After the qualification round, there will be a certain number of rounds in which the competitors compete to get the highest score possible. At the deadline of each round, all players below a certain standard deviation from the mean will be eliminated. This will continue until one player remains. It is also a possibility that scores could be so high that a majority are eliminated in a single round. In order to prevent this, the top few and bottom few scores will not be calculated into the mean.

If you don’t like any of the options, then feel free to suggest your own set-up. All set-ups that are considered possible and not too crazy I will be adding to this post so that they can be voted on.

All votes must be submitted in thread along with your qualification.

I might need this post. I might not. We’ll see.

I like that fourth option the best. Gives it a little more spice than traditional format. Will qualify soon enough

I like the second option the best, it might give more people a chance to make it far in a tournament

(There may have just been one according to Wiggles but still D:)

EDIT: Setting the bar high.

I prefer the third option.

I like 2) the best, though it might be too long unless you did some/all of the five set-up games at the same time or you shortened the games in the bracket phase.

Yeah, that fourth option has me tempted to join again. It’s only been like what… two years or something? I was skeptical right away until you mentioned omissions from the mean. I vote 4 for!

I was going to post one a day then have the deadline for all of them a week after posting the first game.

[Vote: Option 2]* I don’t want to be elim’d in Round 1. :(

Four sounds interesting, let’s go with that. However, since everybody seems pretty much divided over this, there will likely be people who aren’t interested. Might want to find something that suits the vast majority, not just the option that wins out.

I’ll go with option 2 for the poll.

Half the Average :3

I like that more than using the whole average. Option 4 is now half-average.

Still sticking with option 4, then. That just seemed to decrease the mortality rate.

Actually, I think whether or not it is half-average or average depends on the game. Say there is a game with a small range of scores, such as from 200-300, with the average being 250. Half of the average would be 125, which means that no one would be eliminated. I think the best option would to have it be a certain standard deviation from the mean so there is still a decent amount of people below the cut-off number

If you’re doing the standard deviation, then it’s fine. Some of us are 12 years old. We ain’t gonna do your Higher Maths. I’m up for it.

Best quali 5/5

I can’t believe I can’t join the competition because I can’t simultaneously press the prtsc button in my virtual keyboard (my prtsc button doesn’t work) and hover with my mouse on the screen. Is there some other qualifier I could compete in or do I have to skip this competition? Anyway last time we used Standard Deviation things didn’t end up as we were hoping, so I’d vote Option 2.

I choose option 2

Nicely done! (Sorry I couldn’t be reached when you tried to PM me in chat)

Yeah. Virtual keyboards don’t like working the way they’re supposed to. They’re just giant butts.

I like option 2.

Best just giving away all the strategies for this game.

I do like option 4 the most it will however I do not believe it will work when involving standard deviation. Particularly since change of any score can affect the cutoff in an unreasonable and mostly unpredictable way. In “best case” it will simply result in a set percentage disappearing each round. (Bonus points if you can prove or disprove the possibility of a lower score passing and a higher score not passing for E-n*sigma cutoff.)

Half the average make no sense at all for the vast majority of score distributions.

I suggest instead 0.75 worst score + 0.25 best score as cutoff probably the closest you can get to the half the average idea.
