Mario Bros. Online Open, April, Friday The 13th...
« on: March 18, 2018, 08:32:57 pm »
FRIDAY THE 13TH!! IN APRIL.... is the next Mario Bros. Online Open. The first installment of the year! The variation will be standard, medium difficulty, NO POW, and the Tourny will start at 3:00 AM EST on Friday the 13th, and end at 3:00 AM EST Monday the 16th, which will be Midnight PST. Shorter duration of time this time, but you can play as many games as you want, but have to stream live with an Arcade Cab or through Mame. There will be Division 1 and 2 again. Division 1 is anyone that has scored over a million points on MB before, and Division 2 is anyone from a beginner to under a million as their best score previous. If there is at least 8 players in Division 2, a $100 prize will be given out to the highest score winner through paypal. Division 1 winner is bragging rights and $50 bucks through paypal. Start replying in this message to say if you are participating or not and your twitch channel you will be streaming from. MB TIME SOON!! <stirpot>

I gotta start knocking the rust off. I'm totally in for this round of the MBOO.

Looking forward to it. Medium Difficulty and No POW is always fun.

KongTower.... You can participate in Division 2, which is beginners up to players who have NOT scored a million on MB. The more the merrier, and if at least 8 players participate in Division 2, there is a $100 prize, like I mentioned before, for the first place score of Division 2. There has to be 8 though. Incentive to get people to either discover, rediscover, or start playing this great game, and one of the 3 pillars of the original Mario games. Practice now and play when the time comes. You can stream and record arcade or MAME for this.

Never mind. Widebody cabs are the best, especially for 2 player. More space in between, lol! Remeber the variation will be Medium Difficulty on the dips, NO POW again for reference. :)

And one more reminder Wooden Arcade, you must stream your game live on your twitch channel if you have one. On the MB FB group, people have been replying in the main message about this event in the comments with their twitch handles, but you can do that here too ofcourse.

The MBO starts in a couple days. Start and end times again are... 3:00 AM EST on Friday the 13th,which is Midnight PST and end at 3:00 AM EST Monday the 16th, which will be Midnight PST. You must stream your game on twitch, or a recording of you stating the time and day you played your game with a shot of your face, and submit all links to one of the 2 wall posts in the Mario Bros. League on FB or here for this event. Division 2 must have 8 different active players during the course of the event to release the $100 prize to the top score in Division 2. If you have scored 1 million poiints or better before, you CANNOT be in Division 2. You must play in Division 1, where I am giving a $50 prize for the top score of the weekend, regardless how many play in Division 1. Payment will be made through Paypal only. If you don't have a paypal account, you can open one up for free. The variation again is Medium Difficulty NO POW single player. Rev up those engines and let's have some fun playing Mario Bros. this weekend ALL. Cheers!

I'm practicing a little bit.  :)

Please clarify for noob: in this variant, it IS OK to stand on the POW, correct? You just can't hit it? And if you do hit it, that immediately nullifies the run?

Just asking because I have a memory at some point of watching somebody playing who was intentionally knocking the POW away (during the bonus rounds) so that it couldn't be used to stand on. But I'm thinking maybe that was a "custom variant."

Hey Chris. It's regular NO POW, so yes you can stand on the POW, but you cannot hit it. If you do, then your game is dqed.

Ah OK, I think what I'm remembering is "ultimate no-POW", which was done last year, but I've never played it, and couldn't make it to any of those tournies.

Actually for the first time we are accepting scores if you accidentally hit the POW. So whatever score you got to that point will be recognized. This should make it easier for Division 2 players to play more free and loose. I'll be streaming tommorrow. www.twitch.tv/maximumsteve
