I don't see this as problems. For the World Cup these similar problems are there as well.beavis on Jun 21 2018, 04:32:07 PM wrote:This is another difficulty with this idea. It can become very vague at times what fits the genre definition. real fans of a genre might not appreciate art-house movies that also fit the description for instance. Narrowing down the genres might help, but that of course limits choices in more ways, making a pool/cup game system more difficult to execute.Gorro on Jun 21 2018, 01:50:47 PM wrote:What admissable genres are would be up to the interested managers, but I would prefer it to be more specific than comedy , action, horror, sci-fi.
It is sometimes difficult to assign a movie to a nation (especially when using Sovjet / Yugoslavia era movies for their current nations). Also, some nations that join have a very limited pool of available films to choose from, especially with the only one movie by a director rule. Despite these problems the World Cup runs fine.
If the manager picks a movie for the genre, fans of the genre don't appreciate he runs the risk of being eliminated by losing their votes. I don't see that as a problem, but part of the game as a manager of this cup game system.
