What is the best console RA supports? It's up to you to decide!

Welcome to Console Wars, where freedom is our game of choice. Maybe a set recently released that you just need a little push to play, or just continue playing something in-progress? Perhaps you'd like to double-dip with another event, or you could even play something entirely new!

Every week will feature 3 random RA supported consoles; earn enough points from a single set to qualify. You can choose any game you want to play. Developers can also participate by promoting achievements!
The most supported console will remain in the running, but the losers will be eliminated each week until only one remains.

Week 22: 12th August - 18th August
Game Boy Advance (131 points) | NES (113 points) | PlayStation 2 (277 points)

The event will begin on Saturday 00:00 UTC, just in time for the weekend! Posts made after the week ends will not affect that week's results.

Scoring
Posting your supported console(s) in this topic each week earns 1 point. Choose which to support by earning enough points from one of its games.
Developers may also participate by releasing achievements during the event - whether a new set or a revision, these must be for a single game and meet the same point threshold required for players. Release when ready and redeem your point when that console is featured!

Underdog
What an upset! After the week is over, if the console you chose ended up with the least amount of support, you will gain an additional Underdog Point. These will count towards your total, allowing you to make up for missed weeks or for bragging rights!

Badges
This season will last a minimum of 22 weeks. 11 points will earn you a Completion badge, 22 points will earn you a Mastery badge. Those who earn at least 11 Underdog Points will earn an additional Bonus badge! No badges will be softcore.

You can contact me on Discord, using the #console-wars channel, or via site message if you have any queries, but please check the FAQ further down first.

Post Guidelines
A new forum post is needed for each week you participate and should clearly state which console you have chosen.

New Game
You only need to submit a link to the set(s) you have played.
In-Progress
If you have prior unlocks, please submit a link to the set(s) and on which days you were playing. Alternatively, you can link your history for those days.
Developer
Whether it's a new set or a revision, you'll only need to submit a link to the set(s) you worked on.


FAQs
1. Can I get the needed points across multiple games?
No, each week's submission should be for a single set.
2. Can I play Subsets, Hacks, Homebrews and other non-official sets?
Yes, as long as they meet that console's point threshold.
3. Am I able to use Softcore to participate?
No. Due to the numerous advantages this provides, only Hardcore is allowed.
4. What happens if consoles tie?
In a tie for most popular console, both would continue to future rounds, extending the event. In a tie for least popular console, both would qualify for Underdog Points.
5. Will new console rollouts be included in this event?
Yes, but only after a 1-month grace period to allow time for a range of sets to be released and any issues to be found and fixed.
6. Why does each console need a different amount of points?
To better represent the content that is available in that console's library. You can see how they were calculated here.
7. How do I know how many points are needed for a console that isn't currently being featured?
The second tab in the Current Scores spreadsheet below lists the needed points for each console
8. Do I need to wait until the relevant console is selected before promoting my achievements?
No, release them whenever they're ready and just post in the forum to claim your developer participation when the console is featured.
9. Can I use an alt?
A. As a player you must use only 1 account for the entire event, either your Main or an Alt. If using an Alt, you can request that the badge goes to your Main.
B. If you are otherwise unable to participate because you have already mastered every set or don't have enough points left in any unmastered set, a second account will be allowed for that week.
10. Can I play more than 1 console in a week for more points?
Yes, but the maximum points earnable in a week is 2. This can be gotten only if one of the consoles you played that week gives the additional Underdog point.
11. What happens if I post after the week ends, can I still qualify?
Yes, as long as it's within 7 days, you'll still be able to earn that point. It won't affect the console's standing for that week though.
