Been doing some thinking about the seed bonuses for our 2011 HARP Championships coming next summer... I'm starting to think about it this way:

For all tournaments taking place at HARP, your average seed will be subtracted by .005 for each place that you earn in a tournament. The exceptions will be the gaps from 5th to 4th, 4th to 3rd, 3rd to 2nd (.01 each) and 2nd to 1st (.02).

So in an eight person tournament, your seed will go down by (from 8th to 1st) .005-.010-.015-.020-.030-.040-.050-.070.

If in a MARP tournament there is a game that has a nearly similar home game equivalent (VS. Unisystem, PC10, Sega's and SNES's equivalent... forget what that's called, but not games like Contra, because the stages are quite different, but Magic Sword (SNES has a version) would work), you will get a similar seed bonus, except that it will be divided by 4.

That's what's on my mind today... Smile

The Chiki Chiki Boys game that's currently being played at the MARP Championships does qualify for the minor seed bonus, btw...

You get a bonus if a game used in a MARP tournament could also be played on HARP, but that bonus is 1/4 the bonus of winning a full HARP-used tournament(AKA the Speccy Tour). Chiki Chiki Boys is playable on the Genesis... I believe fully, with a minor addition. That's why it qualifies for a minor seed bonus.

Now if the coordinators pick another game that could be played on HARP, then there will be another bonus, and so forth.

Now that I think about it, what if the MARP Championship coordinators select four more games that have home versions? Then the total seed bonuses would be worth more than a HARP-sponsored tournament... doesn't sound right, does it?

So I will probably change it to 1/x, where x is the number of totals games in the tournament. So the Chiki Chiki Boys would be worth 1/8th the bonus of a HARP-sponsored tournament, as there will be 8 games in the MARP Championships.

38. Barthax, -.001250
39. Dax, -.000625

* NOTE: I had a score good for 36th place, but had a wlf file missing... since that was against the rules, I must relegate myself to an older recording that was one rank less.

NOTE 2: I should make a mention of this: if the MARP community gives massive objection to using their tournaments to influence seeding in the HARP Championships, which can be understandable, then this portion of the seed bonus will be canceled.
