+asponge Posted September 4, 2022 Share Posted September 4, 2022 Pick one game that you particularly enjoy or are especially good at and post your best score for this game. This will become your personal game for the season. Any other HSC participant can attempt to beat your score and claim the "king of the hill". If by the end of the season you still have the top score for the game you posted and are still "king of the hill" you'll earn significant bonus points. This competition will run concurrently with Season 21. The points, however, will remain separate. At the end of the season we'll add up all the points scored and find out who's the real NES king. Scoreboard Rules: New titles will be accepted any time through season 21, round 8. Just post your high score in this thread and let me know it's a new game. I will then create a scoreboard for your individual game. No game played in the HSC for the last two seasons will be accepted. You may check this list: https://neshsc.neocities.org/Games/GameList.html and sort by Last Played to determine if something you have in mind is acceptable. Any game played after 3/7/2021 is out of bounds. No games that have a score limit will be accepted in order to decrease the possibility of a tie. For example Gun.Smoke stops at 999,990. Note that games where the score rolls over are ok. I will have final say as to whether a game is acceptable to post for the HSC. If you are unsure please contact me before you put the effort in to obtain a high score. If another player beats your score, you can post a new score at any time to attempt to reclaim the top spot. You do not have to wait for another player best your score in order to post a new one. You may improve your own score at any time. This is actually to your advantage if you're in first place as it decreases the points other players' scores are worth. See scoring point #2 below. Challenges to the top score may be posted in this thread through season 12, round 13. Afterward, every player who selected a game has two rounds (14-15) to regain the top spot for their chosen game. Scoring: A player will earn 25 points for each game for which they hold the first place position. Players in positions 2, 3, 4, etc. will earn points based on how close they are to the 1st player's score. For example: 1st place score is 100,000 Challenger scores 50,000 that's 50% of the top score. Therefore the player earns 50% x 25 = 12 Challenger scores 35,000 that's 35% of the top score. Therefore the player earns 35% x 25 = 8 Points will always be rounded down. This means the maximum points the second place player may earn is 24. At the end of the season, if a player is in first place for their selected game then they'll earn an extra 50 bonus points on top of the 25 for being in first place for a total of 75 extra points. General HSC Rules: To participate, just post a score to the thread. Anyone can join in at any time. A picture or screenshot is encouraged when posting a score but not required. Do not exploit game glitches, take advantage of 1-up loops or intentionally die in order to replay a level. If "point pressing" is not specified in the game rules you should be moving forward in an attempt to complete/loop the game and not "camping" for points. No emulator save states, slow-mo, rewind, etc. No cheats, e.g. Konami code, Game Genie, etc. Turbo controllers are allowed. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
