660k is now the 100th best Donkey Kong score!
« on: January 08, 2018, 07:04:54 AM »
It's amazing that even being in the top 100 has become something of significance.  In fact the lowest killscreen score is in 88th place.  In less than three years this score might be out of the top 100.  So it's wild that even a killscreen may no be good enough for the top 100 pretty soon.  Also Brian Kuh, whose official score was pretty high up there 13 years ago is now in danger of falling off the top 100 at 97th.

I think, realistically, you need to score at least 800k now to consider yourself "Top 100" material. There are a lot of scores that aren't on the official board (some Japanese players, Richie's killscreen, Victor Sandberg's killscreen, etc. etc.). The best I can determine, adding those scores would make 748,200 the #100 spot, and Anders Lasbo's killscreen #99. Certainly there must be a handful of other 700k players out there we don't know about. I think I heard that even BBH was a 700k player, but I don't think I've ever seen him play DK.

900k doesn't even get you into the top 50 and 1M barely gets you into the top 40.

I remember watching BBH during one of the DKOs, he scored 400-500k IIRC. PB likely higher than that Edit: 490,500 during DK Open #4

Riley you should really come off the grass and get your killscreen :)

I'm a score person.  My 851,500 score is higher than four killscreens.  I'd be putting in a ton of time on a score that may not even be higher than my current score.

If you killscreened I'd say it'd be over 851k. Plus you'd get a sweet, sweet badge :)
