Hi everyone,

Robbie and I have been coordinating with Richie to figure out what exactly is going on with KO5 for qualification. We have news about number of available cabs, who is currently qualified, and how more players can qualify.

The arcade top 12 rule is unchanged. If you are in the arcade top 12, you are automatically given a dedicated cabinet at Kong Off 5. Here is the current DK arcade top 12:



After that, Richie has said there will be up to six wildcard cabinets. This count is not guaranteed, but four is probably a safe count. In other words, there are four slots available with maybe another two up for grabs.

The wildcard cabs will be split into two categories: (2-4) DKO cabs and (2) KO5 wildcard qualifier cabs.

Current DKO Qualifiers
#1: Tim Sczerby - 1,076,700
#2: Mick Winzeler - 1,035,400
#3 (maybe): Dan Desjardins - 1,017,100
#4 (maybe): Chris Gleed - 970,200

Current KO5 Wildcard Qualifiers
#1: ?
#2: ?

The KO5 Wildcard Qualifier tournament will be a three-day online weekend event in late April. A more formal announcement will be coming shortly, but it will follow generally the same rules and procedures as a DKO. There will be no prize money. The only prizes will be guaranteed wildcard cabs.

If there are any questions about this news, please let me know. Thanks.

This is great Wes, way to get the ball rolling for the Kong Off 5 this year!  So many great achievements recently, and lots of anticipation for what's to come.  I'm looking forward to following this event and hope to make it out to KO5 this year, we'll see! -Duc

I am so hoping Tim qualifies for the event.  I know the odds of him accepting the opportunity are slim, but I still want to see him qualify. That would be. Kreygasm
