Who said I was completely forgetting about them?
Every user I come across with a good score gets on the list, top 50 or not. If it makes some people feel better, I can make a top 100 when I get enough users.

Thanks for the update Hybrid, just becuse i'm not on the list i hope that one day the list is expanded to around 650 because i just don't have to much time to play the games. Now with this feature it shows us the users who are playing the games all day and the one who are lazy shits :::like myself:::
Or it's just the stat whores getting there points.

Comments:

:Since I changed the number of users on the list from last time, I'll be calculating differences in ranks next update.

Looks like this list will take of and not just be forgotten after some pages. A goog thing becuse another stat list for me to posibly be on and post in.

-I'm still looking for users, too. I'll just have to add that they're new when I'm going over rank differences.

Keeping this list is going to be time consuming. Unlike the onter list it would not take more than a week to get to 1,300 points if you really try. All the other lists could take years to make it that far and there are not so meny interested in b/p as they are in gaming so it seems.

-Obviously, scores shot up thanks to NG Pass 3, mostly by and easy 500 points for 18 medals.
Ya, i took advantage of that and got all of them in about 20 minutes. Now if he does it for the other games thats like another free 1,000 points @;-}>

-Expect to see other stupid comments in further updates.

Big list is big......

Wylo has spotted you already, you should be on the next list update, considering you have at least the minimum amount of points by then.

It's amazing how the medals brought so many more people to the Wi/Ht that have no clue how things work here. Ha, it's like they think he has the time to count people's scores every day and post them. There wouldn't be a point of doing that anyway. I would hate a list that was more than once a week. That would just really take the point out of it.

Well yeah the more games that contain levels, the more users who will try to get them, the bigger the list will become, naturally.

But I'm concerned about the list being correct. Say Wylo goes on holiday for 2 weeks and doesn't do any medal earning and in that time someone else takes the number 1 spot and he goes down to 2. Based on how you've currently made the list - You would drop Wylo from the list until he is back and earns more medals. So the list wouldn't be right as someone else would be in his rightful spot and he'd be gone from it for the time being. Even if someone wants to give up getting medals, as long as they have a higher number and they belong on the list they should be on the list, doesn't matter if they're active or not, that's part of the fun of taking people over.

Enough.

Medal points are not just another number for you stat whores to mindlessly accumulate. Like XBox Gamerscores, it is supposed to give an indication of how good someone is at playing games. Do Xbox gamers go out of their way to buy games just to get a larger gamerscore and a high place in the rankings? No! They do it because they love playing games, they take immense joy in competing against others and aim to be the best!

Now how the hell are we meant to distinguish who is playing these games, having fun and being good at it, and who is just following instructions to increase another one of their numbers?

If you're doing this because you want to be the BEST, be my guest and let's have some fun with this. It's what it was designed for after all.

You want high numbers? Flash Portal is that way.

Regardless of WHY you want medal points, if you have a high number it still means you're good at the games. So void point really.

I decided to give FU another go. And luckily it didn´t glitch when I beated level 4. Now I got two more medals for that game worth 60 points combined. Pretty nice, should give me a nice boost in the rankings. Also that made me pass 2,000 medal points.

I don't really care about dropping in ranking because I'm in it for the long haul.

To address that situation, I suggest updating the list after a specified period after a medal game is introduced instead of strictly weekly due to the randomness of the timing of releases. Like update the list 3 days after a medal game is introduced. And if no medal game comes out, then continue weekly from the last update.

i strongly agree.. its unfair to update while a game has JUST come out as some people will be awake while others are sleeping, a good 3 days means most active users will be able to find / work on the game and get the medals...

i understand the point about "walkthroughs" ruining a game, i do my best to do it... and if i get to a point which i find i just cant do *for example: tryed for 20mins to get "Its a boy!"* while in china mode... i tried alot of combinations to do it but never seemed to do it... as i exited it i saw a walkthrough underneath... it makes some games more playerbal and user friendly... however i still agree that game which require little or no skill doesnt deserve high ranking points... entering a password can be done by anyone... this however means that people who find nearly all games hard have something... overall i think medals are going to be a heavyly debated topic... anway... ching.. chong.. chow..

I would like to reiterate:

"who is just following instructions to increase another one of their numbers?"

You aren't playing or being good at the game. You're just good at following instructions. The latter doesn't take much skill, even animals can follow instructions well.

And lol you trying to tell me that you have played FUI2 and Alkie that much because you genuinely like the games? Good one.

Oh, so because you think they are shit...that means that they MUST be shit? Your opinion doesn't reflect everyone elses.

I haven't played FUI2 all that much, I had one or two good shots at it and found it very infuriating. But despite all the major bugs the game is reported to have, there is a working and compelling game in there, and when the update comes around (I consulted the author and hear he's close to fixing all of the big errors), then I'd genuinely love to give it another shot. A lot of you are too impatient and would rather have your FUI2 medals now, and you fight and you get pissed off and you swear and curse the game, and the stupid thing is you could save yourself the frustration and just wait until the author is happy that the game is in working order, take a deep breath, play, and enjoy.

As for Alkie Kong, it's down to what tastes you have in games. It reminds me a lot of Mario Vs. Donkey Kong which I had for the Game Boy Advance. I loved it. Fair enough?

I'd loved to meet the dog that can defeat the Kitty Krew on Portal Defenders then. Following instructions is like how to make a cup of tea, that is simple - 1. Fill kettle. 2. Turn kettle on. 3. Get cup. Etc. You do need skills to do well at games, usually.

There is no other reason that you or anyone else would attempt to complete levels 3, 6, 9, 12 and 15 in Alkie without losing any health except to gain the medals. Even if you do like the game, the fact is you don't need to do attain that SKILL in order to complete the game. It's just to get the medal and nothing else. Same with getting A+ on FU2, you don't need to in order to complete the game, it's all for medals, medals, medals.

Still medals are goods because they get a wider number of people playing their games. I would likely never have played Thing Thing or Alkie, which I do like a little without the medals there, and it's opened my eyes to how good some games on here can be, that is thanks to the draw of medals.

Medals medals medals.

OK, so I guess I'm back after the Chinese hiatus, as I couldn't count the medals since apparently 'GLORY AND HONOR IS ITS OWN REWARD' or something like that. But yeah, and thanks to Metal-Therapy for giving me a handful of users who need a listing, expanding my roster.

While it may break the weekly vibe of updating every certain day of the week (like say, Tuesday, just like last time), that sounds good to me. Every time the day DOES change, I guess I can update every time the week comes to that day.
Also, since I'll be checking on this thread very often, it would help if someone could also post a link of the game here, so I know just when to update and everything.
