GREAT GAME!! I wish to play this game, but... I´ve gave up. Magical Drop 3 and Don´t Pull were difficult to me. :cry:

I´ve watched the GODHAND video. I have it (lucky), hehehehehe. He plays so much!! :twisted: If I´m not wrong, he made 167 chain, right Ghemant?

Well, I want to give congratulations to all coordinators of K7. Was a great Championship!! Very original, challenging... AWESOME! =D>

In K8, I hope have more free time to play. Good luck for all 8 great players! :) :D
Long life to good games

That's your point of view, Des, but this isn't mine :wink:
A second shooter (after viewpoin) will probably sign my death.
Why a second shooter when still not any sports game or fighter for example ?

As we're supposed to be into head-to-head, can you confirm us this is wrong ?
Even if I would prefer this formula (remember MJSTY was out after 2nd score on Metrocrs)

1) This round is a one-on one
2) Sorry Phil that you're not happy for this shooter, I Can understand that head-to-head against Sik in this kind of game is a bad business ...but in fighting games few players are specialist (I remember in K6 the matches Gastrainga vs TJT and Blost vs Sikraiken ... worst level of gaming) so this kind of games may be picked up only when the players really know how to play them
I wish you good luck and I hope you play your chances also in this game but, however, congratulations for your great K7

hmm, i wonder if it's time to make a separate tournament for each genre of game. So, the shooter lovers can gun for a shooter championship, and a puzzle lover can gun for the puzzle championship, while the best breadth of arcade player can still vie for the main knockout championship.

Just a quick note that nominations for MARP coordinators for 2009 have started. See my post over on the General forum for more details: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=14482

Cross-posting here in case more people are following the K7 threads than the General forum. Sorry for the interruption. Please continue playing Gunbird 2, and good luck!

If you listen really closely you can hear Vertex-Dan medal-chaining.

BBH,I was not able to stand in the starting point because your hurdle was high.

I thought you would be able to do pretty well on this game, since you had a great score on Viewpoint. But I guess they're not the exact same type of shooter... :-#

Still, I thought for sure you'd upload something so I kept trying to get a higher score.

Well, game over for me too.
Good luck to the last 4 for semi, and to the coordinators, this tourney was fun.
My general thoughts about k7:
3 games for round 1 was a very good idea (everybody play at least 3 games), targets are also good idea even if too much rewarded i.m.o. (20 or 25 pts would be enough, so that ranking is still important).
Bad points : tourney is too long (almost 3 monthes), and I still think that every round must keep the top players (no head-to-head), for example the top15 on Metrocrs (MJSTY out there was unfair) or even the top4 on Gunbird2 (maybe we would have a more thrilling week on this game).
Just ideas for next year, no critics at all , I've been myself a tourney coordinator, I know this is a hard job so that everybody is happy with choice of games :wink:

My favourite in k7 : Don't pull (matter of taste, Matt :) )
