Events   Events : It's a Knockout! 2011/12
   posted by mihcael on 13-Nov-2011 10:28:21 (2186 reads)
It's a Knockout! is a classic Amiga knock-out tournament run by the forum members of Lemon Amiga and English Amiga Board. Returning for a 3rd time, the ever-popular knockout tournament takes centre stage once more. Five games will be played over seven weeks. Score high and knock out your opponents.



Voting for the comp Starts Now (November 13th) and will remain open for two weeks. Once voting is closed competition will begin!! Voting: Lemon Amiga - EAB

The first round of competition will be a qualifying round. The following rounds will be run in a round-robin format until only 2 competitors remain! The final two will battle it out to be the "It's a Knockout! 2011/12" Champion.

More rules and general overview

Voting will be limited to games played during the 2011 Lemon vs EAB Super Comp.

which are...
* Soccer Kid
* Batman The Movie
* Xenon II: Mega Blast
* Yo! Joe!
* Indy Heat
* Turrican II
* Superfrog
* Zeewolf
* Ruff 'n' Tumble
* Vroom
* Pang
* Pinball Dreams
* Alien Fish Finger
* Llamatron
* Magic Pockets
* Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge
* Dune II

How do I take part?
Easy. Firstly get yourself either a real Amiga or an emulator like WinUAE or E-UAE. The current round thread will tell you which game to play, give links to where it's available, link to manuals (if they are online), and tell you any extra rules for that game. To enter take a screenshot of your highscore (or a photo of your tv/monitor screen if you're using a real Amiga) and post it in the game thread. You can use free image hosting sites like Imageshack or Photobucket to post your scores.

All competitors must be a member at either Lemon or EAB, so if you're not already, it's time to join!

Sounds like fun for those who play games. I think this is everyone, but me. Strange that I never caught the game playing fever.

Good luck to all!

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Perhaps this is a way to resolve the Red vs Blue once and for all. Play a league of games and whoever looses has to hand over any source code and IP they have to the other camp. Hell, most conflicts could be resolved this way - wars, divorces, legal battles all fought by playing SWOS or Mortal Combat!

I think it is a force which I was just not gifted with at birth.

Being a pilot I thought I would enjoy that Flight Simulator game when it came out years ago. I tried it a few times and lost interest. I am also a railroad buff. So, I tried Railroad Tycoon. Well, that kept my interest for a little longer, but quickly faded. These two are the only games that held my interest for more than one sitting. Every other game I tried was one and done. Turn me loose out in my one acre flower garden though and I am happy.

Do you mean Kaillera? To play online networked multi-player games.

This competition has nothing to do with that. You play at home on you amiga and then upload a screenshot of your highscore.

Just a little note to say,

You dont have to vote to take part in the comp, you can just trun up when competition begins.

And if you do happen to vote but fail to take part, that is not a crime either.

I will update here when the voting is complete and competition begins.

Would be awesome if at least one person from amigaworld can make then journey across to lemon or eab to post a score ;)
