ATTENTION !!!   :o

The Donkey Kong Wild Card Tournament Rematch #3 is now open to *ALL* players - anyone on this planet who plays Donkey Kong! Yes, even Hank Chien, Vincent Lemay and the remaining top 12 may participate (uh oh...)! We will temporarily call this a "DK Open", with the right to change the name later on  8) All players are entitled to win the prize money and bounties.

KO 3 note: We are still taking the top 8 players over the next 3 contests for the KO 3 wildcard division as previously stated. This will now allow players who are in the top 12 to establish a score so in case they get knocked out of the top 12 they may still qualify for the wildcard division. The top 8 wildcard players will not be announced until the top 12 are finalized for the KO 3 (10/25/2013).

We also added some new bounties and new rules, here they are summarized below, however please review the official set of rules at this location: http://donkeykongforum.com/index.php?topic=297.0

Bounties
$50.00 - First 1 Million Point submission: Dan Desjardins
$50.00 - Highest score at the end of level 1-1: Eric Tessler
$50.00 - Best start on your first jump man in terms of # of boards completed: Eric Tessler
$25.00 - Mystery bounty: Eric Tessler

Updated rules

- Any contestant may now register for this contest, it is open to any person on this planet that plays Donkey Kong !!!

- Once a contestant wins prize money in a tournament (bounties are not included), they cannot win any more prize money for the following 2 tournaments (after the next 2 tournaments, that player will once again be allowed to win some prize money). This will allow different people to have a chance at winning some prize money.

Good luck to everyone and kick some ass!!!!

DISCLAIMER: In case I mentioned something above incorrectly, I reserve the right to change anything on this page!  ;) I am sure John will let me know!

Thanks Eric, I'm not sure if this was in response to my post but I do feel it's the right thing to do.  I will try to participate but I have a few hurdles (my laptop is out for repair and I'm severely out of shape).  If I do participate I'd like to exclude myself from any prize money.  I'd be happy just to participate.

It's a little of everything - John and I wanted to open this up to everyone at some point, so we figured it was about time to do so. We are trying to make this as fair as possible  ;)

Don't worry Hank, even with your lack of practice (assuming that is what you meant :)), you will still likely kick our asses  ::) LOL

Me too I'm severely out of shape. I am THAT out of shape that 2 weeks ago, I played Donkey Kong at Funspot, took the bottom hammer all the way and even did some grouping, and still only got 543k for my kill screen.

But joke aside, that's cool that everyone can participate. In one day, everything can happen, even if your highscore is 1.1m+ or 800k. Personally, if I play, it will be to try to beat Phil's 1-1 score of last wild card rematch (13,100), and if I'm more luckier, maybe try to get a shot at 13,600!

Hank,,

You and a few others had the same concern, and we were totally on board.  We just had to decide on a few "winner" rules so we could evenly distribute the prize money.

BOOM. Cool beans. The was some discussion about having an event for all and I was actually thinking of calling in the DK Open or DK Summer Slam :)

This sorta covers it. Perhaps I can help setup something  next month for everyone if there is still interest :)

Thanks again Gentlemen,

Ok I'm going to ask a stupid question. If someone who is still in the current Top 12 come KO3 time is in the Top 8 (Which should happen) do those scores not count then? (I'm going to assume they don't but just curious in case I missed it and I'm sure others will be wondering)

Gracias,
Dan

Hoooooooooooooj!

So the top-seeded WildCard player gets the worst possible position in the KO3?  You guys need to fix that situation.

Anyways, these new developments pretty much spoiled all my plans, and I will not be playing in anymore of these WCR tournaments.

I'll be qualifying the old fashioned way, and I'll try and do so as soon as possible so I don't completely fuck over the current 12th place.

I am incredibly annoyed that my hand is being forced.  Details to follow on my blog.

Look, I didn't want to bust balls.  As it was initially drawn up, the structure for the WCR#3 did not in any way favor my personal goals with Donkey Kong; but Eric and John do us all a great service by organizing these events, so I didn't want to bother them with making changes to fit my needs.  Although I do very much appreciate that they listened to feedback from the community and responded.

This new tournament format has addressed all concerns I had with the initial structure.  I want back in, and I want to take one deep.

There's only one place to take one deep, and it's in the man hole.

Thanks everyone for the feedback...I think we have a structure now that works for everyone, and this was both John and my goal from the beginning. We are always willing to take feedback and tweak the rules/structure to make everything as fair as possible. We love this community and of course DK itself (Okay, maybe John loves Tron a little bit more, but give the guy a break he has white hair).

Ross - I am glad you are back in. I honestly was bummed when you announced that you had backed out  ;) I am glad you re-considered! Several of the people on this forum brought up great points about the structure so John and I had a discussion and made the necessary changes.

Looks like we may be on pace to have over 40 people in this next tourney !!!  :P

Good luck everyone!

Hey Phil, nice to see that you'll be trying some 1-1 attempts on this wild card rematch! I'll probably watch you for a few hours like last time, haha.

I can't wait to hear you say:"Phil Tudose.... Phil Tudose... Phil Tudose.... Phil Tudose" each 30 seconds for each start! haha

I'll also probably try some 1-1 attempts, maybe someone will crack the 14k barrier on 1-1, who knows?
