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

   * full name
   * twitch stream URL
   * Please  specify “DK Entry” in the subject line of the email
- All registrations must be received prior to the start time of the competition.

Stream Setup
- All contestants are required to stream their games on twitch.tv or Justin.tv. (NO EXEPTIONS FOR ANY REASON).
- Contestants are solely responsible for setting up their stream.  Eric Tessler and John Salter will not be involved in any contestant’s stream setup for any reason.
- Contestants may enlist the help of anyone except Eric Tessler and John Salter to setup their stream.
- Contestant’s stream quality must be sharp enough to read the level and score at a glance (as well as the rest of the game play).  If there is ANY question of score and level due to bad quality stream, that submission will be rejected, instantly, with no exceptions. We suggest that you test your streams and check them from time to time to make sure they are working correctly.
- Streams which are partial, glitchy, edited or manipulated in any way will be rejected.
- Streams must be available for review on the contestants registered twitch.tv channel.  If for ANY reason the stream is not available for review on the contestant’s registered twitch.tv channel, the submission will be rejected.  NO EXCEPTIONS.

Game Submissions
- Contestant is solely responsible for submitting their own scores.
- DK arcade or DK MAME (US set 1) can both be used for score submissions (must use TG settings of 3 lives and a bonus life at 7000 points).
- Score submissions can be for any non-zero score.
- At the start of EACH new stream, contestant must state their full name (you no longer have to state your name before every single game).
- The entire game must be played only by the registered contestant who is identified at the beginning of the game.
- Scores can only be submitted via email to dkwildcardrematch@gmail.com.
- Score submissions must contain “Score Submission” in the subject line.  The body of the email MUST contain:

   * Final game score

   * URL to actual stream recording on twitch.tv
- Bounties
   * Contestant is solely responsible for specifying which bounty they want to claim when they submit a score.
   * A contestant can only be paid for a maximum of 1 bounty for any one contest.
   * If a submitted game qualifies for more than 1 bounty, the contestant is solely responsible for specifying which bounty they are claiming and they can only claim a single bounty (and the refs will consider only the specified bounty for the score submission). For example, if I have a game where I am the first to a million points and a kill screen, I claim the million point bounty and the kill screen bounty remains open for other contestants to claim.
   * If a contestant tries to claim a bounty however is not awarded that bounty for some reason (i.e., they were incorrect about the bounty or another contestant's score submission invalidates their bounty claim), the contestant may try to claim another bounty on one of their next score submissions.
   * Bounties are considered in the order in which the score submissions are received.
   * Please remember that the bounty system was introduced for fun and to spread around some extra money to the contestants. Any disputes over the bounties will be settled accordingly by Eric/John.
- If any player is at Eric's or John’s house on the day of the contest, they may use our DK arcade machine for the tournament and we will act as a referee (as such, they do not need to submit their score via email, but the game will still be broadcasted on twitch.tv for everyone to see).
- Eric and John will be validating all scores and reserve the right to reject any score for any reason.
- Games started before the official contest start time (no matter how close to the official contest start time) will not be eligible.
- Games started after the official contest end time (no matter how close to the official contest end time) will not be eligible.
- Last game can be started any time before the official contest end time (no matter how close to the official contest end time).
- Scores can be submitted up until 4 hours past the official contest end time.

Prize Payouts
- Prize money will be issued in the exact amount stated, ONLY to the registered contestant.
- Prize money will be sent via PayPal or sent via U.S. post in the form of a registered money order, or check ONLY to the registered contestant.
- If the contestant rejects the prize acceptance guidelines, listed above, or chooses not to accept the prize, that money will be added to the next contest purse.
- 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.
   - The following players cannot win prize money for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place in this tournament: Dean Saglio, Phil Tudose, Jeff Wolfe

Clarifications
- Kill screen: In order to qualify for a kill screen on 22-1, we must be able to see the jump man death that is caused by the kill screen itself (dying any other way will not count).
 
Closing Remarks
- Please remember, at the end of the day, this is for fun and to keep the community together.  Anyone who does not follow the rules, cheats, etc, will be removed from the contest, and possibly banded from all future contests.
- These guidelines can be changed at any time because Eric and John are in charge and are on a total power trip.
- Get practicing and good luck to all contestants

I'll be trying again if I can get that day off work!  I'm hoping I can get it off!  :-).  I enjoyed playing in the last one for fun!  :-).  I know I haven't ever made it passed like level 9 or anything like that but I will play for fun again!  I enjoyed seeing my name on the one video with all the other top DK players scores!  :-).  That was so cool to see!  I hope they have something like that again!  :-).  Maybe I can win the mystery bounty prize this time and tell all my friends I won something in an online DK tournament!  :-).  That would be so cool! :-)

I think that Dan's bounty refers to someone who has never got one million points in their life. Is this correct Dan?

Yes. It's open to anyone who has not gotten 1 Million points already. :D
Tell you what if its not to much Eric if someone HAS gotten 1 million already then if they get 1.1 Million the bounty is on the table.
I don't want to make this too complicated so whatever you prefer.

Dan - are you talking about a single bounty of two bounties? Example of the 2 bounties:
1. Someone who has not gotten 1 million points but actually does it during the contest (I assume also has never gotten a million points at any time in the past)
2. Someone who reaches 1.1 million

Whatever is cool with me, let me know and I will update the bounties.

Just make it so whoever has never gotten 1 million is eligible if they hit that milestone for the first time and make it if they have gotten 1 million, they have to hit 1.1 for the bounty.  It's like a handicap system to include everyone.

Yes that was my thinking Robbie. So its open for everyone (Except previous winners so Dean is out ;)

I'll do it this way Eric and have 2 bounties - First one claimed is $50 and 2nd one claimed is $25 (You can only claim one bounty).

1. If you have NEVER scored a million and get 1 Million.
2. If you have scored a million and get 1.1 Million.

Thanks again,
Dan

This top 8 thing is going rather well for me so far...

1. Phil Tudose: 1,051,600 <-- not going to KO3
2. Jeff Wolfe: 997,800
3. Corey Chambers: 964,500 <-- POSSIBLY not going to KO3
4. Ben Falls: 869,100 <-- not planning to take the wildcard spot
5. Robbie Lakeman: 851,300 <-- moved to main lineup
6. Jon Mckinnell: 753,600 <-- "very unlikely" to be going to KO3
7. Chris Psaros: 696,800  :D  :D  :D
8. Daniel Desjardins: 688,600

Of course, there are still way too many people for me to fear (not necessarily listed in order of fear):

- Dave McCrary (already locked in if he gets knocked out of the main lineup)
- Ross Benziger (will crush everybody's testicles the moment he decides to)
- Daniel Dock (a mil any day now)
- Jeff Harrist (fearless leader)
- Ethan Daniels (uh oh)
- Eric Tessler (the reigning WC champ)
- Daniel Desjardins (going big big big lately)
- Chris Icenhour (got that fresh kill screen confidence)
- Brian Allen (wht da)
- Mitchell Elliott (if he can get off the bottom girder)

Todd Lalonde is in traction, Johnathan McCourt doesn't play these, and I don't think Svavar or Christian are coming (?).

And this isn't even considering all these other George Riley-type guys who are poised to jump out of nowhere with a big game...
