Another player from Japan achieved their first kill screen at Super Potato today.

I've been very closely watching the growing interest that's going on w/ DK in Japan over the last few months. It's really starting to gain some traction.
Oh wow, he tied my score. Pretty cool!

It makes me happy to mark the fifth anniversary of my first KS by adding not one but two names to this list.

Also makes me happy that Jason and Kibbey, two of <Allen>'s biggest rivals, are now right on his heels. Only a matter of time until Kibbey snatches the title of Australia's Best DK Player... Allen, it's time to get motivated, mate.

These two also bring 2016 into a tie with 2015 for new killscreeners.

Nice way to end the year.  :)

dadkk??

I'd totally forgotten about two of those.

Come to think of it, I guess I remember Andrew Garrett's, and Wes mentions "ASN Esperle" right there above.

ty sir, shows how out of the loop I've gotten...

#5 Kill Screen listed for Rick Fothergill was not a killscreen.  I remember checking years ago on MARP and just rechecked. Game ended on L17-5 with final score of 685,800.

Welcome back, sir!  :)

I'll quote a post of mine from earlier in this thread (2013):

Added Rick Fothergill on 6/10/2006 as per this post.

I checked the EXIF data on the photo and it more or less agrees with the date Rick gave, only it's five days earlier on 6/5/2006. There are a number of camera-settings reasons why the time could be off, but this is good enough for me!

That bumps the list up to 54, but more importantly, puts Rick into pretty exclusive company as the fifth known kill screener and the fourth on arcade!


Be sure to check out Rick's post for additional details. His 685K MARP game was played earlier the very same day that he KSed. After he played on MAME, he went to his friend's house to try to KS on the cab. Looks like he succeeded.

Wow, I never realized that.  I believe Rick then. A very great all-around gamer.  I just saw the link to his MARP score(on the main page by his name in this thread) of this thread and assumed that score was thought to be a killscreen.  Thanks for the clarification.

Shane Sawle dethrones  <Allen> as King of the Aussies, then exactly one month later, Nathan Sheeks smashes it with a 967K killscreen. Rarely does anyone hit their first killscreen so bigly!

DK still hot in 2017!

Oops, I forgot one.

John McCurdy's 1.168 game (which, by the way, deserves a hell of a lot of credit, since less than two years ago it would have put him second only to Dean) ended with the killscreen that John has been intentionally avoiding up to now. He *barely* missed the intentional suicide on 22-1!

If nothing else, it's the hugest first-time KS well ever see...
