To make the arcade more challenging and fun for others, I've set up an automated system that'll decrease the high-score of the person that is on #1 of the game by 5%. It'll be done weekly, on a Monday. I know that the idea is to beat people's high-scores (as I've been pointed out). But it beats the fun if a high-score cannot be beaten.

It's only a 5% decrease weekly, I highly doubt you'll suffocate or die instantly because of that.

This doesn't seem fun or challenging.

I've created a poll.. I'll let you guys decide if this is a wanted feature by the community.

I don't play the Arcade, but this is an absolutely terrible rule that should be abolished immediately. Who wants to work hard for something if they know that their victory is A) Not a real victory but an artificially created one, and B) Will soon be forgotten in the test of time. If you have the #1 score, you should actually be number 1.

Actually, it would be victory nonetheless but over time will decrease in value. For some people it is really hard to beat a high-score and the person stays on top, no matter what. With the decrease of high-scores weekly, it gives other the chance to beat the high-score as well. But like I said, I created a poll.. If no one wants it, I'll remove it. It's that simple.

By "some people" I think Skyrider means himself.

Sky, you need to put my game of Pong on this ****. I know that this isn't technically possible, but figure out how to make it happen.

Not that simple Sub. It needs to be compatible with the high-score submissions of the Arcade.

I'm still waiting for the Arcade to include Quake 3 multiplayer.

Yes, Quake 3 multiplayer needs to be added as well. But priorities, my game first.

I concur, your game (though I have yet to play it) has priority.

I haven't done anything with the arcade (nor do I plan to), but I don't like the idea of having high scores being decreased every week. You don't see high scores in actual arcades decreasing weekly by 5%, so why do it on an online arcade? I just don't see the point in it.

I figured it was like an anime, but for true men.
