Hello NintendoAge and welcome to the 2017 NintendoAge Weekly Contests!  For the eighth straight year, guillavoie and myself will be managing and moderating the weekly NES game contests, so please feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about anything related to the contests.  Also, a big thank you goes out to Stryphos for manning the leaderboards this year, so if anyone has any questions or concerns about the leaderboards, please feel free to send him a PM.  There are going to be changes to the year-end tournament and a reduction in icons for this year (there's getting to be too many icons, so we need to trim a few).  All of this is currently a work in progress, so there won't be much info below at this time.  Once a decision has been made about the tournament format and icons, that info will become available.  Good luck to everyone who participates!

GENERAL CONTEST RULES

Please read these rules carefully before you submit a score.  Failure to comply with the rules may result in your score being disqualified.  If you're new to the contests, please take a few minutes to read over the rules to make sure you submit your scores correctly.

Posting Scores

- In order to submit a score for the contest, take a picture of your score with your NA user name written or typed on a piece of paper, which must be present in the picture. Your NA user name MUST be in the picture or the score will be invalid.
- The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.
- Old scores from past contests are not acceptable as submissions.  You must play the game during the week it has been selected for the contests.  Anyone suspected as passing off an old score as a new one will have their score disqualified and asked to resubmit a new one.
- When posting a new score, please begin your post by typing out your score.  Larger font (18pt) is preferred.
- If you are posting an updated score, please edit your initial post with the new photo and score. You can still create a separate new post as a bump to notify you edited your score if desired.  Editing your original post makes it much easier for the contest organizers to tally up the scores at the end of the week and also ensures that we don't make a mistake and credit you for the wrong score.

Systems

- NTSC systems will be the only consoles allowed for the contests.  PAL systems and games will not be allowed.  There are some PAL games that are optimized to run at the same speed and difficulty as NTSC games.  These will be allowed for use in the contests, but you MUST contact me or guillavoie first before using such a game so that we can investigate it.  Failure to contact us first could result in your score being disqualified.

Emulators

- Emulators ARE allowed to be used in the weekly contests. However, anything that may give a player an advantage with an emulator over playing on the system is NOT allowed. This includes, but is not limited to, save states, Game Genie codes, altered ROMS, and turbo controls.  It is preferred if everyone plays on a console.
- There may be some weeks where emulator use will not be allowed.  If I choose not to use emulators for a specific week, it will be noted in the rules.  This means NO emulators can be used whatsoever and the game MUST be played on a console.  If we play a game and emulators are forbidden and someone still submits a score using an emulator, the score will be ignored and you will receive a warning from me.

PowerPak

- A PowerPak IS allowed to be used in the competition with the same regulations as with emulators. You may not use save states, Game Genies codes, altered ROMs or anything else that would give you an advantage over playing with the regular cartridge.

Points and Leaderboards

- Each week the top 8 players who submitted scores will earn points as follows:

     1st – 11 points
     2nd – 10 points
     3rd – 9 points
     4th – 8 points
     5th – 7 points
     6th – 6 points
     7th – 5 points
     8th – 4 points
     Participation – 3 points

- Anyone who finishes below 8th place will earn 3 participation points.
- There will only be 1 regular leaderboard throughout the year, which will lead right up to the tournament.  The leaderboard style will be the same as 2016 and all points on the leaderboard will be cumulative.
- Even if you feel you can't finish in the top 8 one week because the game selected is too hard for you, still go for those participation points.  It can go a long way on the leaderboard, especially with the tiered tournament.  Remember, even if you only score 10 points on the leaderboard, it could still get you into the tournament.
- There will still be genre leaderboards for 2017.  The six genres are:

     Action/Platformer
     Arcade
     Beat 'Em Up
     Puzzle
     Shooter/Shoot 'Em Up
     Sports

- All games played in the 2017 contests will be reflective of those genres.  The genre leaderboards will use the same point system as the regular leaderboard, and whoever finishes atop each leaderboard prior to the start of the year-end tournament will win a genre icon.
- The genre leaderboards are just for fun and will not impact anyone's standing in the tournaments.  So, if you feel you excel at Beat 'Em Ups, go for the Beat 'Em Up icon.

Participation Score

- There may be instances where the rules of a game will require you to attain a minimum number of points in order to earn participation points for that week.  For example, if we play Double Dragon, you may be required to score at least 50,000 to earn participation points toward the leaderboard.  Participation scores will be noted in the rules if they will be used for a specific week.  In the event we set a participation score, any scores submitted that do not meet the minimum amount of points will be ignored.

Controllers

- Turbo Controllers are NOT allowed to be used. Neither are any controllers that give you any advantage over regular controllers, such as slow motion or turbo ability.
- If anyone is suspected of using turbo functions, slow motion abilities, etc from a controller, your score will be disqualified and you will be banned from further competition.

Cheating

- Cheating will NOT be tolerated in any form. This contest is based on trust and honor. Anyone found cheating will be banned from further competition. A lot of time is spent on these contests, from selecting games to choosing the perfect rules that fit each game to playtesting the rules, as well as many other things. If you cheat, you are wasting my time and the time of everyone else competing in these contests.  If you feel the need to cheat, do not participate in the contests and cheat on your own time.
- The use of point glitches to intentionally increase (or in the case of a low score contest, decrease) your score are frowned upon and not allowed in the contests.  If a point glitch is discovered that can create an unfair advantage, the rules for the game will be altered to ban the glitch.  Anyone suspected of using point glitches will have their score disqualified.
- If there is suspicion of a participant cheating, I will review the case and the member may be asked to present further evidence of their score.  Further evidence includes, but is not limited to, video recordings and/or extra pictures.
- If you suspect another participant of cheating, do NOT call them out in the contest threads.  Please send guillavoie or myself a PM and we will review the score.  Posting accusations in the contest threads creates unnecessary drama and stress for all involved and will NOT be tolerated.

Sportsmanship and Overall Conduct

- Please be a good sport while playing in the weekly contests.  While smack talk and the occasional vent are fine, please do not get carried away with it.  This includes, but is not limited to, name calling, excessive venting/complaining/whining, excessive profanity, cocky attitudes, arguing with contest moderators, accusations of cheating, cluttering threads with nonsense posts, etc.  Participants who cannot be good sports will receive a warning from me.  If your overall conduct is still considered to be in poor taste, you will be banned from the contests.
- Disrupting of the weekly contests in any way will NOT be tolerated.  This includes, but is not limited to, trolling, name calling, unauthorized prize giveaways, unnecessary drama, etc.  Anyone who disrupts the weekly contests in any form will be reported to a site moderator.

Tournaments

- There will be only one tournament played this year and that will be hosted in late October/early November.  The official start date for the tournament is set for October 22, 2017.  See the below schedule for the start date for each round.
- The format for the 2017 tournament is still being considered, but may still involve the three-tiered style we have been using.  In the event of a three-tiered tournament, the competition would see players from the top of the leaderboard face each other, players from the middle of the leaderboard face each other, and players from the bottom of the leaderboard face each other.  The year-end tournament format is still a work in progress, and once it is finalized, it will be announced here.  Depending on the format used, the dates of the tournament could change (i.e. tournament could become longer or shorter).  Consider the exact dates TBD at this point, but there will still be a tournament of some sort.
- It will be an elimination-style competition for prizes.
- Icons will be awarded to the champions of each tier.
- The number of competitors will be based on how many people participate and will be announced prior to the start of the tournament.
- Anyone who earns a spot in the tournament will receive a PM from me asking for them to confirm their tournament spot prior to the start of the competition.  Those who can't or are unwilling to participate will have their spot forfeited to the next available person.
- Anyone who plays in the weekly contests will have a chance to participate in the tournament and a chance to win a prize

RANDOM PRIZES

- Random prizes will be given out again throughout the year, but will be at my discretion.  These will be announced at random with no particular dates set in stone.  More than likely, anyone who participates in a particular contest will entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize.  These prizes will be video game related in some way.
- To make it fair for everyone who plays in the contests, you can only win one random prize for the year.
- For contests that have a random prize, cheating will NOT be tolerated.  Anyone suspected of cheating will be disqualified from winning the prize and banned from further contests.  Random prizes will be stopped entirely if problems begin to arise.  Let's make this a fun thing to do.
- If anyone is interested in donating prizes to the weekly contests, please contact me first so arrangements can be made.  Do not feel compelled to have to donate to the weekly contests, but if you really want to, feel free to talk to me about it.
- If anyone wants to give away a prize on their own time for a particular contest, you must contact me first to get authorization to do so.  Any unauthorized giveaways will NOT be allowed.
- In the event you win a prize, whether it be a random drawing or a tournament prize, I will send you a PM requesting your mailing address.  When giving me your mailing address, please give me your full name (first and last name) and not just your first name or NA user name.  I want to ensure you receive your prize quickly and safely.  I don't want to have any packages returned to me by the post office because "MoofMilker69" isn't a real name.  Once your package leaves my hands and is submitted to the post office, I am not responsible for any lost, late, misdirected, mutilated, or returned packages.  If you are afraid something may happen to your prize, please request insurance.

Because it's confusing, anyone who changes their name will get a new entry in the archive leaderboards instead of adding to their previous totals.  Now if said people were to change their name back to their proper (real) name, well that's another story

Sounds fun. I ought to joy the fray on Double Dragon 2 week, unless I get time out by then and go get the plastic err... tracts of land I have already paid for.
In that case I will be in no condition for playing videogames competitively for at least two weeks.
But this will be mostly fun.

I wonder if DD2 will be another low score contest. Last year's Double Dragon low score contest was incredibly popular so it might be.

I've been practicing a bunch of the game where gonna paly! Also I don't get why people love double dragon 2. The game is kind of boring even on grand master mode.

I absolutely hope this will be the case.
It makes the whole thing more cerebral since you have to try to take advantage of the environment to get rid of enemies to score the lowest amount of points from each of them.
And I like that.

DD2 will be fun, but my times to shine will be Paperboy 2 and Side Pocket.
I am already almost done reverse engineering Side Pocket's physic formulas. XD

I played some Target: Renegade for the first time the other day. I reached stage 5.

It's an okayish Double Dragon ripoff. Kind of fun. I thought that grabbing items was the worst part of the controls. You have to position yourself just right and use a "reach down and grab" move by pressing down and B. Sometimes you won't be able to pick up health refills or a weapon in the heat of battle because of this.
