"Back in the old days of this site, games were filled with more scumhunting and less selfing for the clear"
"2011 EM was the peak of gameplay"
"It's easier to win a trophy today than it was before"
"Trophies today are worth less than trophies from earlier"
"New players don't know how to scumhunt"
"Nobody knows how to play properly anymore"

How many times have we heard these things?

This idea is simple. Old vs. New.

The Situation:

Old users (2014 or earlier) get 1 shared account which I will create. New users (2015 or later) get 1 shared account which I will also create. I'm open to moving this cutoff line, but I just think this is a fair bar. Each account will have a password that everybody on the team will know once the teams are formed.

And they run against each other for 7 rounds.

Whichever account does better in each round, takes that round.

Best of 7 series to see who's better: The old, or the new.

(This is just an idea I had and it'd be fun to do I think)

Sign-up below if you're interested.

Rules:

  • 1 player per 5 hearts, per round. The team can organize the order of who plays on which day as they wish, but the schedule has to be filled out before the first heart of the round is played for each team (similar to how the batting order has to be set before the game in a baseball match). If there are any changes that have to be made because of schedules or stuff, then that's fine. Having team chats on discord could be helpful for organizing this, I'll create a server after signups for the teams to use if they wish, and control everything there.
  • 5 hearts per player, per round.
  • You cannot play two rounds in a row, unless your team does not have enough players. This gives everybody on the team a chance to play.
  • Everybody on the team must play at least one set of 5 hearts in a round before anybody can play a set of hearts for a second time throughout the 7 rounds.
  • You may still run on your own accounts if you are part of this competition as well--will have to check with moderators about trophy eligibility but I honestly don't see the problem if you only played 5 hearts out of an entire run for an account and trophy on your own account as well--it's the same thing as playing a few hearts for a friend really.
  • If you are participating in the competition, you MUST join the discord server however. If you do not join before the start of the competition, I will assume that you are no longer interested in participating and your spot will be given to somebody on a wait list, assuming a wait list starts up.
  • Maximum 25 players per team.
  • All other site rules apply.

I'll add more here as I/we think of things. The first round will be 2 rounds from now, as we still need to create the accounts and get them to 1500 points which will take some time.

Basically this is a shared run competition between old players and new players. If you're interested, sign up below with your original join date!

Signups end at the end of Round 799, or when each team has 22 players.
