I would figure that it ended 11 and a half hours ago.

Yes it's finished. Deadline for submissions was Tuesday 23.59 GMT. When all judges will have reported to me that they're OK with their recordings, I will publish final results.

Without waiting for judges reports, I would like to congrat the top3 and especially Destructor for a very good fight with lot of spectacular scores.
I'd thought this tournament was for BBH, but ...

Even if I didn't play too much on several games, I was very impressed on scores made on ixion where I was judge.

I hope that most of us will be back in next tournament (probably k3, but as my twins are just born - last friday- I can't give you a date for the moment)

I will finish with my usual top3 games for t6 :
1-ixion
2-wits
3-pgoal

I'll be waiting for K3. :D

And congrats to Destructor, good job. Congrats to the rest of the top finishers also.

Mine is:

1 - Wits
2 - Psychic 5
3 - Parodius / Dangun Feveron

And congratulations to you, destructor. 790 points out of 800 is absolutely fantastic.

well, I was hoping that I would have a chance at actually winning this one. I would have if Destructor hadn't entered. :P Mad props to you, your Psychic 5 score is awesome... as for Pleasure Goal, I could have sworn I ended up copying your scoring technique :D I guess you just refined it a little more.

Overall I think this tournament definitely had the best collection of games that were actually enjoyable to play. Except for Boulder Dash, fuck that.
I was pleasantly surprised by Wits, it's actually a pretty fun game. And the BREAK TIME dude rules all.

Best - Psychic 5
Worst - Wit's (very closely followed by Boulder Dash)
Most played - Dangun Feveron. Three minutes needed only, great for a quick blast.

And I was totally sure you would hate Wits :)

I've never liked Boulder Dash games, therefore I knew it would become a pain for me to play it. I also hate Boulder Dash :(

My reflections on the games in T6:

Boulder Dash: Frustrating. This was my least favorite this tournament. I would've settled for Ghox instead.
Dangun Feveron (Time Attack): Some quick fun, but bullet hell shooters aren't my cup of tea.
Final Fight: Always a legend in my book and my most played game this tournament. Had fun piledriving thugs.
Ixion: Fun for a while, but some of those levels hurt my eyes.
Parodius: A very good game with some laughs (I wish all high score entry screens were like this).
Pleasure Goal: I normally don't play sports games (except NBA Jam, which is too slow on my computer, even with the sound off and frameskip 11), but after playing this, I was pleasantly surprised.
Psychic 5: A rather nice game with many secrets to keep me coming back.
Wit's: Average, but there's something about stick figures that poop bricks that keeps me coming back for more.

Congrats to Destructor, great play :D
But i hate tournament formula :x , when you really need to spend much time to master the games for good scores is so boring after two week... (unless you really love the game) , so im waiting for k3 (even if in k2 i have the same place :cry: )

I loose too the Italian Derby with Kale :( (wasting some good training on ixion)

But...
See you soon guys

JT


PS Special congratulations and my best wishes to Phil for is double prize...

wow i never thought i would be 3rd , in my first marp tournament .
Anyway ixion was great game , i hoped to get a first place there but i just
didnt have time to try and beat those scores , nice fight though (btw i had lots of problems using keyboard in ixion , what controlers were you people using ?|)
pgoal is an awfull game , i had no fun playing that , played it only 2 times after i saw the trick to beat the game :(
i did some leeching on psychic5 (i saw that from others:) but i still dont get this game , what is the trick to get all gold bonus and those hidden bonuses?
ffight i a great game and grats to those who finisihed it , although that was the only game from T6 that i played when i was a kid i still didnt do much better .
Other games were also fun except i also had problems with keyboard in wits,
i just couldnt turn around in later levels at high speeds.

Great tournament and the scoring system is much better then in DECA
so it makes playing games more fun.
