Basically, this is the "pimp my tournament" thread :D :p Got a tournament up-and-running and still need some fresh meat to complete the field? Let the good people of TAT know via this thread. Good luck!

Hi there,

I've entered the mahjong one. How does it work exactly?
Does my current high score count?

Hey :)

I'm guessing it works pretty much like a regular game of Mahjong. You do what you have to, and when you've either cleared the lot or you've reached a score that works for you, you press "submit". That score will be sent and the game played counted as one of your tries.

Your current highscore does not count. You have to perform under the intense pressure of the tournament :D ;)

well this is my first too.
Once you register, you wait until all places are occupied and then you can play (there's a little "play" link under your name in the tournament)

Well of course the first game I try is a clear unfeasible Mahjong draw
Ugh !:(

You know, I honestly didn't think the mahjjong tourney would fill out this fast. I was under the impression it was an deeply hated game. I actually almost made it a 4-person tournament. Or maybe it is a hated game and everyone here is as intensely competitive as I am.

I love mahjong...it's just that this one seems to be extremely hard to clear. I've only done it about five times (luckily one was the tournament :yahoo: ) and I'd hate to think how many games I've played.

If only you would have gotten that in the first round :p

I feel like it's the US Open in 2005. You're Venus and I'm Serena; you beat me in a previous round only to crash in the next round.

As Serena said, "If Venus (Kirkus) didn't beat me, I would have won the whole thing".:p

plus, no need to sorry. There's always next time. This is the first time we've met in the first round of a tournament. There will be other times ;)

Oooh! you could fill out the draw in frogger!

I suck at Frogger and Alpha Force.

Have you seen my latest score in Frogger?
I probably suck in it more than you do. Heck, I'm thinking i'm gonna embarrass myself out there in that tourney.

Alpha force...I suck in that too. Heck, I suck in all of them except for Moon Lander

I just enter these tourneys, now, to play for fun. :)

plus, if I can knock down a few people or, heck, win a tournament, I'll be moderately happy :)

These games and tourneys are definitely great stress relievers and diversions from crap in the real world :D

I signed up for the last spot in the Frogger tournament because it's been up for forever and I felt bad for you all who were waiting for it to be filled. Don't expect me to win it, for sure ;)

Okay, so, before I keep playing the Frogger tournament, it doesn't look like any of my scores are registering. There's no submit button at the end, either. Don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

It won't let me put you through. Maybe the creator of the tournament has to do it. I was able to put people through on all other games where I've tried to.

Kirkus
08-21-2007, 10:36 PM
I think if you start your 3rd game, do like 1 roll, then leave the page it'll show you as having played all 3 games. You should then advance.

There seems to be a pattern here... games where you can't comment on your scores don't work for tournaments.

It was the cheese. That and your opponent would likely have lost anyways, so it's all a go. For repayment, you can join the Simon tournament. I feel that 8 people may have been a bit ambitious, but hey, I gave it a shot.

I'm playing in the Yeti Greece baseball thing and there is something wrong. The bat doesn't swing until after the penguin hits the ground, no matter when I let go of the mouse. I tried it out by letting go of the mouse as soon as the penguin jumps and he still doesn't swing until after the penguin hits the ground. So I've played 2 tournament games with scores of 0. I'll wait until I get to work tomorrow to try again!

I was just curious why people register for arcade tournaments if they have no intention of playing them? Is it for the sole purpose of making everyone else wait three days until you're disqualified?

I register to get the tournaments started, because they're so often sitting waiting for people for weeks.

And it would really help to have the automated reminder after 2 days that the site promises, but has never once done :rolleyes:.

I signed up for two tournaments....and waited and waited and waited...and then I went on vacation with my family and to my dismay...my first tournaments got the required number of participants and started without me ...naturally, I was disqualified and discovered this upon returning home from visiting family members WITH NO COMPUTERS!!!

So don't think I signed up for tournaments and then "just" didn't participate! :)

Do you thirst for medals so bad that....you can't wait three days to give the player the chance to participate? Oh wait...does the Arcade even give medals? No? You just get your name PLASTERED everywhere in the Arcade?

What would shadow think of this?

Go into the arcade and click on tournaments. You will see a list of tournaments waiting for players. You can enter however many you like.

The way it works is that both you and the person you are against have to complete your games before a specific date, the winner progresses.
