KONG OFF 6 - Update
« on: July 12, 2017, 01:32:31 PM »
Well details are still a little sketchy but Richie has mentioned there is indeed a KO6 Coming!

1. Will be at his arcade in Flemington, New Jersey - Timeframe is Mar 2018
2. Current Formant is for 12 Cabs for Top 12 and 3 Wildcard machines.
3. Not sure how the Wildcard machines are going to be handled there was some qualifying going on. Those likely still apply.

More as details come in all!
DK High : 1,059,700 (Lvl 22-1 KS!);
DK KS Speedrun : 1 Hr 16 Min 40 Sec - World Record!
DK Lvl 1 - 1: 12,400

Currently have no plans to attend after still being unpaid $750 from Kong Off 5. I hope everyone who goes has a great time!

Elaborate? Is it run poorly?  I would drive down from NYC for this.

ReplayFX is in no way affiliated with Richie Knucklez.  Comparing the events is not even possible.   There hasn't been a Kong Off at Richies since KO1.  I understand Wes' position, but it should have no effect on yours GalacticDancin; it's about money, not how much fun the Kong Off is, or whether or not it's worth it.  Again, this KO will be nothing like the last 4, Richie doesn't have any partners to try to tell him what to do this time.  Just my 2 cents.

I don't have any concrete details, but I've heard rumblings that the next Kong Off would either be at Richie's arcade or the Museum of Pinball down in Banning.  Obviously those are different coasts, so the either location would affect attendance significantly for people. I'm hoping for CA for selfish reasons.

Otherwise, no details.

Sorry to hear about your situation Wes. Hope your beef is with ReplayFX and not Richie.

ReplayFX handled the money so my beef is with them and not Richie. I'm sure in the end they'll do the right thing. It's not the money itself that is frustrating; I had planned to donate the entire $750. It's the principle -- they know they haven't paid me, I've contacted them about this in the past.

There are a couple of things that I feel are worth doing some serious thinking about before plans move further.

Don't shoot the messenger.  :)

A KO in Banning is going to be a very hard sell to any contestant who will be traveling by air. LAX is approximately 100 miles away (ie, a 2-hour car ride). Transportation to and from the event is going to be the number one logistical problem. Remember that KO "4.5" (at the same venue) was essentially written off due to lack of competitors.

Issue number 2 is interest level for another live KO. I might be wrong, but my sense is that in 2018, assembling a Kong Off Row of top-score players isn't gonna be quite as easy as it was during the era when most of those scores were being set... we're talking a half-decade ago at this point. Competition and innovation on DK isn't exactly firey hot right now. We already know that the world champion won't be there unless his issue gets the resolution it deserves. We also haven't heard much lately from Dean, Hank, Vincent, Ross, Willms, Wiltshire, McCrary, et al when it comes to DK, and (aside from John and Jason) we haven't seen a rush of hungry up-and-comers filling that vacuum. And what about  <Wiebe><Billy><Tim> ? It's probably really important, before anything has been set in stone, to actually gauge interest and establish who is going to be able and eager to make it to Banning (or New Jersey) in March. KO5 turned out great. If there's going to be a KO6, we should make sure it has a chance of being great too. We don't want to go out with a whimper.
