I think the best argument against it, which you sorta pointed out to me Phil, is that it probably won't get used very much. If only a couple people are going to submit to it, why bother?

The no-killscreen track still only has one submission, and that's actually a more interesting track than 7-man.

Dude, just create, and fund a Donkey Kong 7 man track at Twin Galaxies.

Or Just start Chris' unofficial list of 7 man donkey kong scores, that would also do :)

Well, I'm only interested if others are interested. And it sounds like they're not interested. :)

There's a lot that I like about the new TG, but the thing that I don't is all of the useless, low-participation tracks on there. What TG desperately needs, IMO, is FEWER tracks, not more. I don't wanna see us emulate that problem here.

At some point won't 3+1 devolve into playing a super high risk strategy for more and more boards and even restarting if you don't get multiple 17k barrel boards by 8-1 due to top freezers? At some point only super lucky runs will be viable for a high score anyhow.

I don't think it's there yet, since better deaths gets both Dean and Robbie WR scores, but at some point it has to get there anyhow. The idea that a full game needs to balance risk with reward is transient and will die when the scores get high enough.

That's unless someone comes up with fundamentally new ways to safely press. And while I love Robbie's pie strats they're not all that safe. It has to eventually progress to a point where a lot of luck is a prerequisite to scoring within 100k of the wr.

Note: This is coming from someone who is excited as hell about 125k clean starts and any 63k levels, so maybe I'm missing some nuance. Hell, I never made it past level 13 (though I tell myself that if I really wanted to just run boards, skip bottom hammers, and not group I could ks).

We hit that point a long time ago :)

There is a significant luck component both to getting a 138k+ start, maintaining the required level average, and getting the death points. If someone wants to get 1.22 and dies on a non-barrel board, the run is basically over.
