I'm game for teaming up with you. Only need a third if you're ok as well. Perhaps DomeJohnny? Just a relaxed, just for fun team?

Getting together on live sounds great (and not only because of the badge Stick Out Tongue ).

Add me to the list of people who are out. Greater % increase is garbage, people with lower gamerscores already have the deck stacked in their favor because of more games available, then you make it exponentially hard by making it % increase.

E.g.
RandomJoe with 10k gamerscore who plays only CoD games and gets some multiplayer achievements decides to join. He throws in Avatar and 3 mins later has a 10% increase.

Now to compete with this meathead, I have to score 60,000 points. Do you see how f'n stupid that is? Yeah, no thanks.

That is already unfair enough, but one that I'm often up for. Anyhow, good luck and I hope those that participate have fun.

*EDIT*

Nevermind, I see that this has changed. Nope, no interest at all in a percentage race. Fuck that noise. You are absolutely right, this is way too weighted to the low scorer. The original post, which has been heavily edited, was originally just a score increase, and the first time percentage was ever mentioned was deep in the thread, for just an individual. No the first post has that percentage crap.
Ok, ok, lets just hold on. He's making the effort, maybe he just needs to refine the rules and since there is no prize as mentioned then what's the harm in joining for giggles as futiles put it? You don't need to work at it, just show up and then maybe he will see this as a test run season? What I'm saying is let's not kill this thing before it starts, because anything starts somewhere right?

Exactly if this works there can be two divisions a created division and a random division but we should wait to see if everyone enjoys the trial run.

To go from a straight forward score increase to a percentage increase without any real reason is hugely different. He can track me, or whatever, but, yeah. I am teamed with Buck and Hotdog, both are in or around the 500Ks? So, it would take 5000 to make a 1% increase for either of them. Yeah, no interest in that at all.
