Umm… idk if it’s cause I switched to chrome after my safari messed up so completely and totally that I don’t even know, but I can’t see the pictures and I’m pretty sure I’m posting it right. If you can see them though great.

FTFY so I can add scores.

1st place: 70 points
2nd place: 35 points
3rd place: 20 points

Seeing that this is a tourney that should be about fun first, rewards second, I think that perfectly suffices. Now, on with the tourney! :D

You should put that in the OP. I know it shouldn’t matter if there’s a reward or not, but it seems like it does, and not everyone will see that post.

Pls, it’s already there. What are you talking about?

Eternal bragging rights. Why, did you except better? :P

Just kidding, I’m hoping to get some Kong points for the best 3 people in the tourney. If that doesn’t work out, though, then Kreds will be sent out to the first 3.

I prefer kreds to kong points.

Well, too bad then. Thing is, I found a problem that practically makes me unable to provide Kreds for the tourney (i.e. I’m under 18 and as such don’t have credit cards or PayPal), so I may resort to points only.

In the meantime, I’m talking about Candyman to determine the rewards, so I’ll put them up in a post shortly! :D

Set-up Poll!

Yes, I’m letting you guys decide what kind of tourney this will be! I’m an awesome guy, aren’t I? No idea why I named the tourney “Worst. Tourney. Ever.” …Oh, you want the possible set-ups? Okay then…

1.) Plain, old, traditional Kongregate tourney set-up. After the qualifier, X people will be eliminated every round. After Y rounds, (X and Y are determined by the amount of qualified people) a final is held, with 2-5 people competing in 3 games, where the person with the best scores wins.

2.) A head-to-head knockout tournament. The first 32/64/128 (let’s hope) people will be paired up with people who placed similarly in the qualifier, and they’ll go through a head-to-head tourney until one person remains. This will have 2 subtypes, detailed below. NOTE: If either subtype is accepted, the people who will actually qualify will be determined by their score in Effing Meteors multiplied by the SoaCP score.

2/a.) Single elimination. You must be on alert here; once you lose, you lose for good.

2/b.) Double elimination. More favorable here, since people who lose once will be placed in a seperate bracket. However, if you lose in that bracket, you’re out, so be careful!

3.) Beat the average! Once you have qualified, you have to get the best score possible in the round. Once it ends, an average is taken from the scores submitted, and people below the average are gone from the tourney. In order to make it fair if a person manages to get 10 times the score of everyone else, or gets a lot less than the others, the first and bottom few scores are not counted.

4.) Tell me what YOU want! That’s right! If you are not satisfied with what I listed here, feel free to detail your own idea! If the set-up’s not impossible to work with and doesn’t require a lot of time, I’m putting it up on the list so everyone can vote for it! What an awesome tourney, right?


Prizes

Due to a number of people asking for it, I’ve talked with Candyman so that the best players will get rewards, even though this tourney is about fun first and rewards second (though with the games I doubt that having fun will be possible here). These prizes are:

1st place: 70 points
2nd place: 35 points
3rd place: 20 points
BONUS FOR ALL PLACES: Eternal bragging rights

With that said and done, I hope you all will prove me wrong and have fun playing in the tourney. Now, off you go, there’s a time machine for you to get! (If you don’t understand, read TLCUBS) :D

The Lousy, Crappy and Unbelievably Bad Storyline (from now on, TLCUBS)


You wake up on a cold, hard floor.

Confused about how you got here, you decide to sit up, and see that you’re not home anymore. All you see is a crowd of people, who’re all about as confused as you. The room’s seemingly endless, and you have a hunch that every single person on Earth was transported here. However, everyone can understand people who speak totally different languages, for another strange reason, so you don’t have trouble talking with people from other countries while trying to find out what is going on here… Well, up until a cheerful person starts speaking out of the loudspeakers on the ceiling.

Hello, and welcome to the TARDIS (Totally Awesome & Radical Dimensions in Space) Project! We heard that there’s another abbrevation that has a similar meaning, but that has absolutely no correlation to what this is about. Well, maybe there’s some relation, but whatever.

I know what’s your first question: “Why the hell am I here? I want to go back home and waste my life on the internet!” Well, the answer’s quite simple: we’ve made some time machines- signs of excitement in the room …but don’t get that excited yet, we still have a while to go before a select few of you can use them.

Due to the nature of this project, you have to complete tasks in one of 3 games about prehistory. If you manage to complete any of them, you may take part in the project. If you don’t, it’s no problem either – you’ll just be teleported back to your homes without remembering any of this. Details about the games and other useful information about the project are on the wall of the room. Have fun, and good luck!

Quickly enough after the speech ends, you scramble to the wall, hoping to find things that can help you later on. After you read them, doors open on the wall, where numerous computers are seen. It’s time to prove you’re worthy for this mysterious project…


Games and Other Information

The first qualifying game is Snakes on a Cartesian Plane. Here, you have to get a score of at least 15 in Classic mode. You should include the “Today” tab in the “Classic High Score” category in order for your screenshot to count.

Example screenshot:

The second qualifying game is Tasty Planet: DinoTime. The task is getting through level 3 with a silver medal. There’s no high score tab here, so you won’t have to worry about that.

Example screenshot:

Finally, the last qualifying game is Effing Meteors. The goal in this one is much simpler: complete the game, and get as many extinctions as you can! You must have the high scores on the “Today” tab in the “Extinctions” category for this one to count.

Example screenshot:

The deadline of the qualifier is Friday, April 25th, 2014, 8 PM CET (GMT+1).

Oh, and since you might want a spreadsheet:

Here you go

I guess I’ll reserve this post if I want to lock this thread.

While at it, if you post before I place the posts I want (i.e. if you ninja me) I’ll tie you up in a chair and you’ll have to play Canabalt, Nuclear Eagle, Pel and Dolphin Olympics 2 for all eternity. You don’t want that.

Oh, I’m still in this game?… Ok then.

(RQS questions)

1. Why do you think Kadleon is NK’d?

Let’s be honest here: while he’s quite a bit random at times, he can be a good player (source: experience) so mafia might try to avoid him being in-game for too much time so as he doesn’t reveal one of them. Also, he was quite active.

2. Why do you think Behemoth542 is NK’d?

No idea, honestly. Apart from confirm, nothing was posted by him at all. Perhaps a strategy from a mafia to confuse town?…

3. Who do you think is the most suspicious at the moment?

Null tells at the moment.

4. Who do you think is the least suspicious at the moment?

I’d ban the word “Ban”, because that would mean this thread needs to be deleted because of the bunch of inappropiate words, and that it can’t be created again.

I love the Gemcraft games, but never in my life have I felt so blatantly lied to and taken for granted than by the developer of this game. Strung along on lies is the most accurate way I can describe it. Would miss a self-stated deadline, and not even bother to comment, or explain for days or even weeks. I’m starting to get a really bad ‘Chinese Democracy’ feeling about this – ton of hype…delays, more hype…delays, excitement and hype…more delays, many repetitions later it gets released…sucks.

They are going to probably lie to us some more as a little extra slap in the face, then ask us to give them money.

Solution: Don’t follow the development process of games.

I don’t, I do follow officially announced release dates.

Dear god facepalm

ANYTHING can get in the way of release dates. Here, I’ll list a few:

Sickness, bugs found in the last minute, power outage, loss of lines of code, trouble with sponsoring/ads/premium content, final polish taking longer than expected, implementation of API, quests or anything like that, (all of that likely) generating hype, or just being a plain liar. (what you say is likely but is not)

Any kind of minor little problem in code can actually screw everything up in a game. Did you miss a semicolon? No more monsters in your game. Did you mistype an equation? Bye-bye, point counter. Didn’t add 2-3 words in a loop? Well then, how about I crash your computer? All that can happen, and when it does, one can run a debug through HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of lines of code. Trust me, it does take that many to code a game like Gemcraft, and a single typo in any of them can destroy the game in a minute. And that’s just one of the things that can delay release.

Any other questions? :P

This is not calculating bought items, other server costs and expenses, possible salaries if we have a team here, and so on, just a tiny fraction of data we know for sure.
