This year is very special - the 20th anniversary of Elasto Mania. Most probably FEM20 will not happen or it is going to be reduced, but we already have World Cup having been announced and an unprecedented event of Elma being advertised and added to a recognizable platform.
Therefore, we might expect quite many newcomers - but what is more important for this very event - a number of oldschoolers coming back, or skilled players like GRob, who visited EOL yesterday, and wanting to give the game another try.
But do we want a loud thing that rapidly keeps fading away towards the end? Why not try to optimize the stoke and add some sauce?
Kalmard is trying to make the game meet the current gaming industry's requirements. Let's show that EOL is not just a game for dummies during their leisure, but can also offer competitiveness and beauty that deserves to be rewarded with real prizes.
Some ILKKA may say
but I will never agree to that and what's more I'm sure the likes of zweq, adi or Kazan wouldn't mind being generously appreciated for their .rec files.>elma
If this would be found a good idea and some people donated to the prize pool, the options for dividing it are countless and I would like it to be the main focus of this discussion, like:
at the end: winner / top3 / top5 / top10 / top20 / ...
after each event: winner / top3 / increasing amount towards last event to keep stoke / ...
other bounties: random participant from top50 / secret areas / ...
So, what do you think about that? There is still time and I think as we are now a grown-up community, we could make it happen. Moreover, I have some questions to Kopaka: Would you be able to manage the money if this was a thing? What were the prizes after WC6 and WC7 as I don't remember at the moment?
