What Is Your Goal For WCQ #3? EDIT: OR By the Kong Off 3?
« on: September 01, 2013, 11:42:32 PM »
For me, I hope to break 950 during the weekend. I don't think I'm quite ready for a million yet, and am not entirely comfortable playing at that pace. Not because I don't think I have the raw skill to do it, but playing out a full million-point game is hard for me purely in terms of mental stamina.

A survival pace kill screen used to be draining, but now it doesn't tire me like it did two years ago. Eventually I'll get there with a million, because that's the way the evolution seems to go with DK (the better you get, the less energy it takes), but it's still a distance away.

I'm not so worried about holding onto the wildcard spot. Corey is now going, so he'll take his, and Ben still hasn't decided yet for sure, which means I'm still in the red zone. I want it, but then again, if I have to play on Friday at the KO, that sounds like fun too.

What are your plans?

I plan on killscreening before then, and then maybe putting up a solid 900k score for the WCQ#3. I don't have any real expectations of being a wildcard, but I might as well give it a shot.  8)

A double hammer kill screen would be nice... I'm not going to be thinking too much about the pace

As always I need to get that one million. To be honest, I still don't feel safe with my 964K game. I think that I am in a learning period and so I am not playing so well lately.

You're in either 5th, 4th, or 3rd position depending on who does or doesn't take the spot, so 4, 5, or 6 people would have to beat 965K in the last tourney for you to lose yours.

There are 6 players at most left in the field (going to KO) who are even *capable* of 965K, and only one (Ross) who has actually gotten that score. So basically all six would have to ace the last tourney, and five of them would be substantially increasing their PBs. Very, very unlikely...

I said it at the outset and I still think it's possible that, once you factor in the no-shows, a basic 850K kill screen will probably hold up for a spot.

I hope my goal might be getting a 300k game or better!  I'm definately not aiming too big!  :-).  But if something or anything special happens then it does!  :-).  I was also hoping to maybe get a prize!  :-).  I've been hoping to get my very first ever online prize in an online tournament!  I've never won anything before and I would love to tell all my DK friends out there in the community too and all my friends and co-workers at Walmart where I work that I won something from playing!  :-).  Those are my goals right now!  :-)

Let's open this up a little.

How about goals for WCQ #3 and/or "by November 15th" (the Kong Off 3).

I've heard, for example, that a certain Check Man world record holder is hunting for 1.17...

900K before WCQ#3
950k during WCQ#3
1m before KO3
1m at KO3

Let's hope I get the time (and sleep! ;) ) in to pull these off! School and life seems to be getting in the way.

Shhhh... It's a secret.

I do feel 1.17M is within my reach.  However, I'm not factoring in fatigue so 1.16M is perhaps a more realistic target.  Not sure I'll be able to pull it off before KO3 though.

Don't worry Hank, it seems that Dean's 1,186,700 is still a secret to the general public, and so I think you have nothing to worry about. ;)

Yea that is strange.  I mean every time the DK arcade WR is broken, every news channel covers the story...heck there was news coverage for Steve Wiltshire going to the KO2 as a wildcard...but nothing at all for Dean's latest score.

I don't think the general public even knows what MAME is.  I also don't think Dean nor I play for publicity.

How many of you have had conversations with people where you get the following response: "Donkey Kong?  What's that?"  Or even better: "Isn't Pokémon for kids?"  Point being, if you want publicity you shouldn't be playing DK.

I have a lofty goal of going from 702k to 1.04m+ by KO3. Will it happen? Not likely but I'll try :)

I think I know what Mr. Riley is winky-winkying about!

I'm going to put something up about Dean's game within the next couple of days, but I can't write worth a damn these last few weeks.
