Title: Lakeman Strikes Back!!! 1,172,100!!!
Post by: xelnia on September 18, 2015, 01:47:42 AM
Just under 6 hours after Wes Copeland scored 1,170,500 to take the arcade world record from Robbie Lakeman (then at 1,158,400), Robbie threw down a new arcade best of 1,172,100!!! Two of the best DK games ever played came only a few hours apart. Wes deserves an enormous amount of respect for taking the record from Robbie, but Robbie has shown just how great a player he really is. What's next guys?

What the?  I thought this was a joke at first.  Looks like it's real.  Robbie struck back while Wes was sleeping.  Fantastic response Robbie. 
Oh, and Wes.  Once a champ always a champ.

I know of only a select few who have that X factor when it comes to competitiveness.  You are one of those few, Robbie.  For you to fire up your machine after having just lost the record, and then reclaim it, is a true inspiration.  You are the true #1 until someone dethrones you on a video arcade machine.  Congratulations.

INSANE! Congrats to both of you. Also I think there should be a forum badge for people who have held the arcade/mame world records, just a thought! :)

RTM REPLY - maybe it's worth maintaining the rankings of players' combined arcade and MAME scores for those who have submitted on both ?

Congrats to both players who broke the 1.17M threshold !!

Wes submitted his score to TG, I've not seen Robbie's submission yet.  So, Wes should get approved first, he'd be the official record holder and would have the badge until Robbie submits his score (or approved if already submitted).  If it doesn't go down that way, I'd suggest giving him the badge for a day at least to honor the achievement.  Just a thought.

He is a force to be reckoned with.
It is strong in this one.
Beware your other scores.
They will fall at his whim.

True champions.  Be careful though I hear Brian Kuh is lurking.
