I also find it extremely taxing to say a sentence aloud once every hour or so during a freeroll tournament.

But if I can get past that hurdle, somehow, during the next month, I'm in!

Chris your a much better player than me because I know I'll have to restart more than once an hour :)

I'll be playing and proclaiming Jeff Wolfe from Calhan at the controls. I'm sure my wife will be teasing me by the end of the night. ;D

We are expecting quite a few people to be participating in this contest and there will likely be many score submissions. John and I are doing what is best to make the score review process as easy/fast as possible. This will enable us to get everything reviewed in a timely manner and will help make the contest run more smoothly. People use many different email names, stream names, etc and knowing who is who is difficult to track. During our last tournament it was limited to the wildcard players who attended the KO 2, so it was easy to track everything. However this time around we may get ~50-100 people participating...who knows what the number will be. This is why we implemented these rules, and it only takes a few seconds to put this info in an email and to state your name/etc on your stream.

So start practicing and be ready for the tournament ! Good luck to everyone !!!

I'll do my best! Got two 500K+ games yesterday back to back so who knows maybe something good is coming up. Do have one question about this "Million Point Limit". I'm entered now does this mean if I get a million points say Saturday I cannot compete in March? I don't notice a cutoff on the "Million Points" so can you clarify and say something like "Anyone who doesn't have a million points as of 2/1/2013" or something like that. I have been starting to play for a million in between running boards and if I get extremely lucky then what? :D

Any contestant may register for this contest as long as they do not have an officially validated Twin Galaxy score of 1,000,000 points or higher on Donkey Kong.

Well, Dan, I think you would be OK because it has to be officially validated by TG.

Which lead to this. The current known 1M pt players are:

1167   Dean Saglio
1138   Hank Chien
1135   Vincent Lemay
1107   Jeff Willms
1064   Steve Wiebe
1062   Billy Mitchell
1052   Mark Kiehl
1037   Tim Sczerby
1037   Shaun Boyd
1026   David McCrary
1019   Steve Wiltshire
1012   Kyle Goewert
1010   Benjamin Falls
1000   Scott Kessler

And I don't think Steve Wiltshire's has been officially validated yet, not sure, and Ben didn't submit his, neither did Scott Kessler or Tim Sczerby. And Billy M and Steve Wiebe, Tim S wouldn't participate anyway, so basically the out list is:

1167   Dean Saglio
1138   Hank Chien
1135   Vincent Lemay
1107   Jeff Willms
1052   Mark Kiehl
1037   Shaun Boyd
1026   David McCrary
1012   Kyle Goewert

I don't have a problem with saying my name at the start of each game.  In fact, since I did have a 1M+ officially verified player at my house for a while on the day of the last Rematch tournament (Shaun), we made sure to explain who was playing currently. In the end, it didn't make a difference since I had my last man bounty game before he was there, and got the first man bounty after he had left (this was on my last game of the night, and didnt end until past 2am).

If I was a shady person, and knew a top player, you could attempt to pull off having someone cheat for you...but I highly doubt anyone that could technically 'cheat' during this contest, would.  The short list of people that have 1M+ verified scores clearly love the game enough to not cheat at it.  That would be pretty low.

Then again, it would be pretty cool to see the look on everyone's faces if Vincent logged into Allen's twitch account and streamed a 1.1M game pretending to be Allen the whole time!

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I have updated the registration rules with the following:
Quote
Any contestant may register for this contest as long as they do not have an officially validated Twin Galaxy score of 1,000,000 points or higher on Donkey Kong (this includes scores achieved at the Kong offs). This rule applies at all times up until the start time of the contest. If a registered contestant achieves an officially validated Twin Galaxy score of 1,000,000 points or higher prior to the start time of the contest, they will be unregistered from the contest and will not be allowed to participate.

I was wondering how you guys were going to handle the second tourney, which would have a more "open" enrollment than just wildcards, while politely dis-inviting the best players. Reverse-Kong Off qualifier was smart.

Let's be honest, none of us want to have to play against Dean, Hank, or Vincent! Ross is fearsome, but at least there's only one of him.

Chris, can you please tell me why did you list my name in third? Can you explain that to me? Would that kill you to put me in 1st place, for once (or at least in front of Hank)? Since I'm not a mod, I suggest Jeff Harrist to quickly modify Chris's message to put me in 1st of the listing.

I know you've put me to be the favorite at the Kong Off 2 to win, but that doesn't count! Kong Off 2 is the past, I'm talking about the present right now!  ;).


(I was obviously kidding by the way, for those who didn't get it ;-)). But still!

How about maybe in the future a tournament with a handicap system in place?

Obviously if they participated, all the big guns on here would start from scratch.

The rest could follow this system

PB of 0-200,000 - Start on 800,000
PB of 200,000 - 299,999 - Start on 700,000
PB of 300,000 - 399,999 - Start on 600,000
PB of 400,000 - 499,999 - Start on 500,000
PB of 500,000 - 599,999 - Start on 400,000
PB of 600,000 - 699,999 - Start on 300,000
PB of 700,000 - 799,999 - Start on 200,000
PB of 800,000 - 899,999 - Start on 100,000
PB of 900,000 - 950,000 - Start on 50,000
Rest of field from Scratch.

Obviously this is only a guideline. I just thought at some stage it would be cool if all Skill sets could compete together. It would be a great thrill for and advert for the game for beginners to be rubbing shoulders with the likes of Hank, Dean, Vincent, Jeff(s) etc. in the same tournament. It would also be cool for a fun tournament after the intensity of the proper ones.

I like the spirit of the idea, but there is waaaaaaaay too much to think about and debate when it comes to the handicapping. We would never all agree! Plus, any system like this could be gamed unfairly.
