Hopefully you guys have seen this by now! With a peak 85K viewers, TPP is the most popular thing on TwitchTv and a huge internet event right now. Since its creation, the host has added additional functions to vote for 'anarchy' (Red tries to carry out all commands, standard system) or 'democracy' (The command with the highest amount of votes every 10s goes through, allows multiple key presses e.g. 'down4start2').
Why is it so popular ?
I'd say both the nostalgia of playing through the original black and white pokemon games, combined with the absurdity of getting stuck on straight paths, using and throwing items at useless times etc.
The community following, with its inside jokes and narrative is also hilarious.
I bet they'll beat the elite four by 16d 0h 0m, may be slightly optimistic.
What sort of competitions might people be into?
Just thought I might get some thoughts going around this since the forum is here, and it could be a good direction to go in if the community keeps growing.
Monetary competitions where everyone pays a stake?
Perhaps gaming titles to be won and lost in a challenge system?
One-off tournaments? Leagues?
Specific games or medleys?
To start with I think tournaments of specific games would be fun, and a good way to introduce competition to the forum.
