What I removed (read this first!) (click to toggle)
So, this is probably gonna sound extremely silly, but I thought about a way to make things a bit more interesting for our next kartparty:
For testing purposes (and to see if I'll keep this up), you'll have to try and hit me with certain items/a certain amount of items as part of challenges I'll be setting (they'll be announced before each race or so; Community races only unless we somehow get a Worldwide party with only us osu! people). For example, if I say "Try and hit me with 5 green shells within one race before it ends" (you MUST be somewhere within my touchscreen/range for it to count) and you manage to do so, you get a point. (No, I'm not letting it stack AKA you hitting me with 10 green shells for 2 points, etc. Yes, more than one person can get a point for the same challenge. Also, since I'm sure we all have different internet speeds, I'll be judging things from my screen.) The challenges, of course, will vary. Also, if any challenges involve more than one race (ex.: Try and hit me with a Blue Shell 3 times within 3 races), you'd get a point for each successful attempt. Whoever has the most points from these challenges wins!
Now, like I said before, this is just something silly I came up with, and you don't HAVE to do this. I just wanted to try something that'll probably make things a bit more competitive (and possibly more fun) even though you don't really win anything out of this. That being said, if this manages to catch on, I WILL be posting a leaderboard after each kartparty session. To keep things fair (especially for those who either couldn't join in right away or decide to leave early), a person can only have a certain max amount of points per session (which will probably vary depending on the amount of people playing/who agree to do this).
So what do you guys think?
After you've read the above (click to toggle)
To be honest, I didn't think things through and will most likely scrap the above idea, and here's why:
- This will definitely requite a lot of concentration on my end, so I honestly don't know if I'll be able to track each hit properly.
- I suck at creativity, so the challenges will probably be generic (though if I try to add anything complex, it'll probably ruin what place you'll end up in).
- Since mm usually "does Time Trials" during most of the races, the challenges wouldn't be fair on his end.
- The above idea (first spoilerbox) was something I typed out of boredom.
Of course, if you guys have any ideas on how to keep things interesting, I'll try to continue this.
