    How To Play an Online Game of Skate & GOS FAQ

    GOS FAQ

    What’s a online GOS?

    An online Game of Skate. It is when members compete against each other in a game of skate. A game of skate is similar to a basketball game of “Horse”. Players take turns setting tricks, and then the other players have to match that trick. If a player fails to match a trick in a set amount of time, that player is given a letter. The letters you receive when you fail to match a trick are S,K,A,T,E, in that order. A winner is determined when he/she are the only player remaining without SKATE.

    What’s different from an online GOS and a regular GOS?

    In an online GOS, you have days to match the trick, not only one try. Also, when a player sets a trick, they do not get to set another trick like in a regular GOS, instead, it is the next player in lines set.

    How do I set or match a trick?

    You have to film a certain trick, either the one that needs to be matched, or your own trick you are setting. (Make sure to do the correct hand sign in the video) Then, you have to put the video file on your computer, through a USB cord, firewire, or other device. Next, upload it onto a video hosting website such as Vimeo, Youtube, or Putfile. Finally, post your set or match into the corresponding GOS Tricks Threads.

    What is a hand sign?

    A hand sign is doing a certain action with your hand/fingers as a mark, to let other members know that YOU filmed the trick for THAT game of skate, so you didn’t just find the clip and post it as your own.

    Where do I sign up?

    When you see a sign up thread for a game of skate you wish to enter just post that you’d like to play. NOTE: Make sure you have all of the requirements to play the game, this can include post count and/or reputation amount.

    When are sign ups?

    Sign ups are held whenever the previous game ends, or is close to ending. You should frequently check the Game of Skate section.

    How long do I have to set/match my trick?

    There are different amounts for each games, you generally have 3-4 days to set/match your trick. Check the rules in your game just to be sure.

    How To Play

    Step One

    Have all of the requirements for the game. This can include having a set number of posts, or reputation points.

    Step Two

    Search around for a game you would like to play. NOTE: We have FOUR different levels of skate: Learners, Beginners, Novice, and Advanced. Make sure you sign up for a level you can fairly compete in. When you find the level you want to be in, wait for a signup thread, and then post that you would like to join. (Not everyone who wants to join gets to play, usually there are 10 spots for each game)

    Step Three

    Keep track of your game’s trick thread, located in the Game of Skate section. Let’s say Robby sets a kick flip. If you have 3 days to match this trick, (different for each game) film your kick flip, make sure to do the hand sign, put it on your computer, upload it, and post it in the Game of Skate Tricks Thread. When it is your turn to set, you can set at any time you wish, within the time limit given.

    Note from Shorty's_Kid: Don't go a level down just because it might be easier to win. I'm sick of seeing NGOS level kids go to BGOS. These games are supposed to help you learn tricks, not to increase your e-ego.

    If I were you I would also add to not go a level down just so you can win. I've seen a bunch of people do that, kids that can tre flip joining learners, etc. Go a level up, these games are to try and learn new tricks, not make your internet-ego go up.

    I went ahead and stickied this thread since apparently people are benefiting from it.

    If a higher-up-the-chain guy wants it unstickied, be my guest.
