Summer 2018 ISML Mahjong Festival

Post by blaZofgold » Sat Jul 21, 2018 4:45 am

祭りだ!麻雀祭りだ!
It's a festival! A mahjong festival!
August 1 00:00 - August 31 00:00 PST (-8 UDT)

Image
It's back! Welcome back to the second annual Summer Mahjong Festival! This year, we'll be doing something new and exciting!

During the month of August, you will be playing a ladder series with some unique stipulations. Out of the 31 days in August, you will be responsible for 20 days worth of Ladder games. Each day, you will have the opportunity to report a single game that you play during the day. This game can be with fellow ISML members or on Tenhou ladder.

You will earn points for each game reported during this time, whether it's a win or a loss. Of course, you will earn more points for a win, and also win more points depending on your score. We will be keeping track of every player's Win-Loss record, as well as total individual score. The following will determine the ranking:

1. Total games played (up to 20)
2. Number of tops
3. Total individual points
4. Average point total per game
5. Average placing

The calculations are subject to change depending on discussion.

IMPORTANT: In a ladder format such as this, win-trading is quite prevalent. To clarify, win-trading is when you purposely lose a game to a friend, and the very next game that same friend loses to you. You both report the games where you win and receive none of the consequences. There will be anti-wintrading mechanisms in place for the festival, so if you were thinking about that then too bad.

Please have fun enjoying playing mahjong during this wonderful August if!

Proposition:
1. In case of more than 20 games, pick the best result. (It's gambling in the end, after all.)
2. (Regardless of whether point 1 is adopted or not,) we should create tiering based on past tournaments' result, with the latest, that is Winter tourney, as newest update, and make rules to prevent farming of newbies who want to participate in this tournament while learning mahjong, or well.. people that just don't play mahjong very often yet choose to participate.
Giving his love for life, and died dreaming about her in the end. A real happy man, right? ~

1. I don't see a good reason to do that. I want to encourage players to play, but I don't want to necessary give the people who can spam all day the advantage. You choose at the end of each day whether you are going to submit a game for that day, and you get 20 days max.

2. This is free play, tiering would defeat the purpose. I will be on the lookout for win-trading though.

Today's the first day of the Mahjong Festival! Everyone, please have fun and post your scores here! Remember, one game per day will be counted, so please dont double-post!

As far as win-trading is concerned, I will not be counting scores if the other players in the room are the same players as the players in the room from your previous day's score. Please go and find other people to play with!

Have fuuuuuun~!!!!
