The largeness of your hugeness is surpassed only by the massiveness of your enormity.

The greatest game of Donkey Kong ever played.

So glad I got to see most of this, truly an epic game. You have destroyed Kong and I expect your cab never to boot again since the big monkey would be too ashamed to show his face. Big kongrats.

Congratulations Wes, I knew you could get over 1.21M, but wow, I was thinking it was going to take you a few months.  So what do you think is realistically humanly possible?  Your determination has paid off, you are now the undisputed World Champion, amazing accomplishment!!! :)

Hi

When one doing a cmparison of Robbie 's last game of 190K posted on TG

http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/154886-Arcade-Donkey-Kong-Points-Hammer-Allowed-1-190-200-Robbie-Lakeman?p=826020&viewfull=1#post826020

With Wes current 1.2M game at

Robbie was on track with a better score only at level 20 Wes did surpass him.

So I am not a DK expert at all but looking at the aggresive point pressing Robbie did had up to this point
If one do not take into consideration of the men at the end this clearly do show that a higher score is poosible?
Add up Robbie score of level 20 -1 to Wes end game levels 20-2 onwards one do get an higher score what Wes just now did so I feel someone will break Wes score eventually.....

Just as we all thought breakng Dean's score on Mame was unbreakable.

All the best of luck and surpassed blessings o the next pioneers of this game.

If someone ever manages to hold a 1.2m pace w/o deaths until the end of the game, and gets the SAC situation that wes got, the score would certainly be beaten by a healthy margin.  The difference with this score is that Wes managed to get all the way to the end without a single mishap or mistake, which is really pretty remarkable when you realize the difficulty of holding a high pace.

Hi

Yes I agree, but what if one of you experts work out some strategy combing both patterns/manners of play of Wes Copeland and Robbie Lakeman

Like George Riley did describe the two gamers different strategies they did follow in more detail here:
http://www.classicarcadegaming.com/forums/index.php/topic,6672.msg75367/topicseen.html#msg75367

So taking George's idea forward practically:
Play from level 1 to 10 - aggressively like Robbie without loosing a man and then switch to a more conservative safer playing method of Wes up level 20.

Now if one can have at 10-1, no man loss about a few K ahead of what Wes score was for his 1.2M mark of 452,200 like what Robbie had of 469,900 for his 191K game.
Here Robbie allready did had 17K ahead in pressing points but becuase of Wes end game, Wes was able to max out.
So now from 10-2 switch to more safer manner of play to try reach 20-1 with no man loss or only one man loss, then at the end max out..?

Also maybe to work out a play strategy to safer at some screens and more aggressive at the more difficult ones?
Like maybe level 1 and 4 are "easier" to pressing for points for your experts whereas the other two play safer and so on..?

Wow.  Just wow.  I'm floored.  Congratulations Wes, you are the champion of DK.  Others will eventually cross the 1.2M threshold on DK Arcade, but you, sir, will always be the first to have done it.  Nice job.  Having accomplished this monumental score, what do you think is realistically possible as far as pushing that score up higher?
