One Credit Contest: Leveling Up! (Updated May 12, 2015)

Okay, so some big news regarding the 1CC: Starting from this game onward, you will receive experience points for participating in the challenge, based on ranking!

Every player will receive at least 1 experience point for submitting a score and participating.

In addition to that:
1st place will receive 20 experience points (exp)
2nd will receive 17 exp
3rd will receive 15 exp
4th will receive 13 exp
5th will receive 11 exp
6th will receive 9 exp
7th will receive 8 exp
8th will receive 7 exp
9th will receive 6 exp
10th will receive 5 exp

For every 20 exp you accrue, you will gain a level. Your level and exp will both be represented next to your position on the leaderboard. All players will henceforth begin at 1 level.

I may also make small graphics or text which can be placed in the signature which display your current level and exp, if anyone desires it. This will require a lot of maintenance if we go the image route, so it will be on request only. Cheers, and happy playing!

Nice incentive. I may play games I otherwise would not.

I've added the experience chart to the original post!

If anyone would like to come up with titles for different ranks to be unlocked every so-many levels, I'm taking suggestions.

Haha I could imagine a ranking system based on dodgy peripherals. Beginners start out as the powerglove, because it's so bad. They may then proceed to the position Sega Activator. From there, rise to the rank of U-force, and then InterActor. (Yes, it's a subwoofer that you strap to your body for pretend force-feedback)

Anybody who actually plays the 1CC matches with any of these peripherals and provides video evidence will receive a special award. I own 3 of them.

This is a great idea! As much as I hate to admit it, achievements have really taken control of how I approach and play games.

Yeah, Trophies are a large factor involved with gaming for me now, unfortunately.

I think it's good, though- gives you something to work toward.

^ It ruins certain experiences, though. In Uncharted all I cared about was grabbing loot and scouring corners, restarting checkpoints, interrupting gameflow, and generally not having fun. It was when I decided to just take what Trophies I can naturally attain, mostly.

If I stayed on that path it would've annihilated Journey for me, I am sure.

I don't think trophies and achievements should have to interfere with your game, it really does ruin immersion in the wrong kind of titles. It's fun to do after you've cleared a game once, though.

If anyone has requests or ideas for how and where the level/exp info should appear, I'm all ears. If you guys want ranks on your vgf accounts for instance, I can talk to the admins.

I usually just play through once without worrying about trophies, then go trophy hunting. I find that to be the best balance so you don't ruin your experience. Some are really super fun, like trying to take the gnome with you all the way through Half Life 2: Episode 2. Honestly, that was more fun than playing normally for me.
