An overall cross-games points/reward system?
One idea proposed for the game fest was basically a cross-games award system which would basically reward a single person's activity in the game fest.
Reward points could be awarded to players based both on their current position in the charts of games they play. The more games they play the more points they are therefore eligible to win.
Ultimately this would give us the best player in the whole game fest, someone to have the honor of carrying the title of The Ultimate Player of the Freedomware Gamefest 2007.
How would we derive these points though? Perhaps the best and simplest way could be to simply count wins. Unless I am missing something you can hardly go wrong with that. Any win in any game will ultimately push you up the ladder and awarding an universal gamefest point for this progress then seems only natural (if we decide to do this, which is why I'm posting this topic).
What about teams? Well, if one wins as part of a team then every player of the team may be awarded one point. If there is concern that this would allow awarding points to players who don't deserve that, we can backtrack that a bit and award half a point to every player on the team. Or to be even more precise we can award a whole point to the team half who had best scores/frags in a team and half a point to the lower half of the team (who had less scores).
Without a system like this in place we will likely not have a single ultimate player of the game festival. You decide whether this would be good or not.
