Crap Tournament 8 has ended!

Congratulations to our winner and top crapper: Barra! For winning, you get the crappiest prize of all: NOTHING. After a hard fought battle for first, and for the second year in a row, tudose takes the coveted Number Two spot. Perennial Crap favorite Zerstorung finished in a respectable 3rd. Strong showings by ExedExes and Max made for some exciting leaderboard action over the past 10 days.

A huge thanks to Wes Copeland, gstrain, QAOP Spaceman, and krehztim for their help in running the tournament, testing games, and verifying scores. I must also mention Bill House (Crap founder) and Ross Benziger for keeping this tournament alive over the years. I hope I was able to live up to their crappy standards.

We had over 550 submissions by 28 gamers. The games were awful, but the gameplay was amazing. There were several new world records set during this tournament:

Ponpoko - 217,910 by PG3
Porky - 288,200 by Zerstorung
Side Trak - 92,980 by Conjured Entertainment
Streaking - 47,620 by tudose

Crap-inspired serphintizer did not compete, but set a new record on Super Rider with 290,230.

Congratulations again to all the players for a job well-crapped. Please feel free to leave feedback and thoughts about the tourney in this thread. See you all next year!

What a fantastic tournament this was.

First of all congrats to the guys who placed. Some absolute epic competition over the past 10 days. Special mention to Tudose for making me sweat throughout the last week. You're an animal! Next year is definitely yours.
Great to see a number of TG/MARP/RU records go down as well. (Apart from the camaraderie), for me this contest is all about pushing the games to their respective limits (and sometimes beyond) We definitely achieved that this time around.

Massive thanks to Jry for organising the games. They were top-notch shitters. A better list of Crap games would be hard to find.
Also big thanks to Wes for the website. Makes these contests even better. A central hub for contests like this has been needed for years, so thanks for all your hard work putting it together.
Also a big thanks but a HUGE apology to the verifiers. Bogey Manor and Progress can't have been easy to watch. You guys rock!

Favorite game/s: Have to say tugboat. Its the only game I'm going to play outside of this contest, maybe apart from Boggy 84.
Blue Print was alright despite the massive flaw of not being able to shoot the damn thing.

Least favorite game/s: Talbot. What the fuck is even happening here?
Streaking is an absolute abomination. I didn't think they could make Pac-man even worse. They did.
Bird invaders (Yosako) would have made this list had it been a full-contest game.

Best score/s: Conjured's 92,980 on Side track. Murdered the previous record and probably the only person to ever finish a bonus stage with 10 cars. Nice work sir.
Tudose's 47,620 on streaking was very impressive too.

Special mention: PG3 for maintaining his 1 game, 100% record.

Things to be improved for next year: More streams from myself. Super slack this year, sorry about that.

See you all at IGBY in a month or so!
:)

GET HYPE FOR CRAP  Kreygasm

That was the mantra going through this entire week. I will say this year's lineup was FAR better than last year's. No Magical Cat Adventure to be seen! Every game was playable in its own way.

Blue Print - I was *very* happy to see this one, because it was one of the first games I ever played on MAME, which would explain my early success @ Day 1 with a decent score until some of you figured out that the machine did NOT let you fire the shots yourself.

Bogey Manor - Personally, I do NOT like to leech in games. This game pretty much demanded it. I just watched the video from the official CT playlist and did what they did. My score lasted a day or two until some of you figured out how to break it, and talk about "power armor" and stuff like that just kinda drew me away from it. I did manage to put up a score 50k better near the end.

Boggy '84 (and the legend continues...) - I saw the creature... NO, NO! Oh, wrong Boggy, sorry about that. This wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but to get a good score early on it was absolutely necessary to get that 20K on the game show level.

Ponpoko - A game so bad that it had its own theme song. Yeah. This was probably my least favorite because in a game that demands precision, it would certainly help for the controls to be a little better! Once I found out that you could control how you long and short-jump, I finally managed 82k. You couldn't help but hurry to get better bonuses. PG3 broke the game however.

Porky - Fun once I figured out the jump mechanics. Just couldn't clear that large pit after the first cave. My score held up well.

Progress - It's Grobda! No, wait. It's crap. The secret was apparently in the exponential bonus you got with those trucks as long as you didn't lose a life. Grabbed onto that and put up a tolerable score.

Side Trak - BLUBLUBLBUBLBUBLBUBLU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank goodness I don't have to hear that abysmal sound anymore. Mr. Kaufmann must feel good about his decision to release the Exidy games to the general gaming public now, right? I put up with it enough to get 56k.

Streaking - Believe it or not, I saw this game before we played it. It was in the training montage scene in the forgettable 1983 movie "Joysticks" that was on the USA Network's "Up All Night" many times (it was a late night show on the weekends dedicated to crappy movies). A simple maze game would have sufficed, but a speed increase halfway in and the killer fatigue did me in, relegating me to the 22k club.

Super Rider - The worst trip to the shopping mall you'll ever have. At least that's how I saw it. The world's weakest motorcycle ever. If this was an AVGN episode, think of the spots where he dies 30 times in a row while on a profanity-laced tirade and that sums up my experience with this crap. I just played it so I could get over 100k and stay competitive.

Kreygasm Talbot Kreygasm - HYPE! No, seriously. I played this about a month ago before we even did it here, so my limited knowledge of this was somewhat helpful. That fateful Wednesday night I just set out to do it, got lucky with the 2000 point grabs, made it to Round 5 and promptly lost 2 lives to that damn fox and then by losing the "rabbit game" because the CPU got the 8 bastards first. Yes, you heard right. I had *3* lives on that stage. 750 points short of the WR. I will come back to this one, and yes I'm crazy  Kappa

Tugboat - I saw talk about a lot of you felt that it was better to have this as a weekend game instead of being the entire tournament. I couldn't agree more. Then I saw talk about how you had to die in a certain spot to have a better log arrangement for the entire game, and ways of getting past certain areas by moving in all sorts of directions. Nope. That was enough for me. The score I got, I didn't even die on Phase 4, and I figured that was enough an omen for me to just accept that. I would have liked to get above 700  FailFish

Yosaku To Donbei Bird Invaders (hey let's call it what it is!) - Another one I was glad to see relegated to the weekend. My score was solid for nearly 24 hours, when I saw the one you call "Scoops" and Barra going after it I had a feeling that I wouldn't be getting 2 golds out of this tournament (and honestly, I thought one of you pros would be getting Talbot too!)

So that's it, my 2nd CT done. Looking forward to the IGBY and my "one-man band performance" as last year's award show put it so eloquently. Thanks to the organizers, WC for his back-end work as always, and all those who had to sit through leech fest after leech fest.

CRAP HYPE
VERIZONTAL HYPE
IGBY HYPE
and all of that,

That's a great score! I believe I've also performed this feat during my own play at some point (Ben falls might have too at some point during his practicing). I haven't played the game in like 4 years, but I believe Ben Falls and I were getting like 50k+ for our attempts quite frequently at one point. I think I had a break out game that was somewhere in the high 90Ks, because I remember really pushing to try to get 100k+. Assuming the game keeps repeating (I can't recall, since it has been so long), there is a nice slow way to basically marathon the game, but that would take so long to get a significant score... and, besides, going fast is way more fun!

Great game!  Kreygasm Definitely not crap!  <YSG>
