KO 4 format update
« on: June 10, 2015, 11:03:27 PM »
Hello everyone!

I am in discussions with Richie and so far this is what is planned for the event format at the Kong Off 4:
- 22 Donkey Kong machines in total (this is what Richie is targeting)
  - 1 dedicated machine for Billy Mitchell
  - 1 dedicated machine for Steve Wiebe
  - 10 machines for the top 10 players (MAME plus arcade scores), each player gets a dedicated machine
  - 10 machines for the wildcard players: 6 dedicated to the top 6 players from the 2014 DKOOs, and 4 machines kept open for anyone else who wants to play
- Friday and Saturday: High score grind event just like the previous Kong Offs (players are ranked by their highest score from these 2 days combined), 1st place gets paid
- Sunday: Bracket event for the top 16 players from the high score event
   - #1 plays #16, #2 plays #15, etc
   - 1 coin drop per player, no restarts (each pair of players play one game head to head and that is it), winner advances to the next bracket
   - pays 1st and 2nd place

Current list of the top 10 players (MAME plus arcade):
1. Dean Saglio: 1,206,800
2. Robbie Lakeman: 1,144,800
3. Hank Chien: 1,138,600
4. Ross Benziger: 1,136,500
5. Vince Lemay: 1,135,900
6. Wes Copeland: 1,121,600
7. Jeff Willms: 1,107,600
8. Jeff Wolfe: 1,103,700
9. Steve Wiltshire: 1,100,700
10. Mike Groesbeck: 1,076,000 (Mark, Dave and Phil are not going)

We are currently waiting on Ross to confirm that he is going, but so far everyone else is in (Ethan Daniels would be next in line if Ross can't make it).

NOTE: Richie has the right to correct/change anything I have stated above  ;)

I'm willing to attempt and bring my DK Cabinet up as well for the event. My monitor is a little bright but more than playable. My cab is black tho :D

Love the format and how there are both styles of competition. Thanks for working with Richie, Eric! <YSG>

I guess I gotta decide if I even want to try for top 10 now, as the lower bound is now 1.1m+ (WHTDA?!!). Lovit.  Kreygasm

Good luck on your quest, Dan.  <Sanders>

Mark K. said he cannot attend, so that frees up a spot.

Hi guys. Richie I know we spoke last night. I talked thing over with my wife and it really doesn't look ill have the funds or vacation time from work to attend. Figures that a spot opened up but I'm going to have to pass and offer to next in line. Thanks again.
