But because i normally died the inp should be regular, isn't it?

(useless to say that i'm just a BIT angry)
Very unfortunate bug. :(

But yes, of course that score will be accepted.
It's probably a BTANB, i.e. a bug that could happen on the real thing too. Rotten luck I'd say :/

Welp, I guess I'm out. I haven't had that much time to play this game as much as I wanted (which I find a pain to play when going for score anyway), and my cable going out on Wednesday didn't help any. Good luck to all; to self: better luck next time.

Just a reminder that there's 18 hours left in this round.

(yes, I'm aware that I didn't post a countdown timer.... couldn't find a country for the countdown that ended at 0 GMT, all the UK ones are on summer time which is GMT+1. You can of course see the actual GMT time at http://www.wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/ )

I did get a bit of playtime this week and have always been fair at maximizing points on these bubble bobble type games, at least in the early levels. But I cant seem to advance much further and new highs are incremental at best. My last submission will most likely be just that.

Good match =D>

GL Sikraiken!!! I have no time to play right now before deadline, due RL. I just remmy something that BenJos told me about his playing experience in K2 or K3 or wasn't K4? When his opponent didn't play until the last minute before the deadline whenever he is actually hiding his replay or secretly drop out the tourney for no reasons. It was no fun playing one week without knowing your opponent may play or not. Be honest, play fair and have fun. :)

Go ahead beat my score, Sikraiken. I know that you are better than me. I got no moviation to play right now. GL on the next round. :)

Given that the site greenwitchmeantime in this moment says 7:27 PM, the board says 19:57. It seems it's half an hour ahead.

EDIT: And this post has 8:57 PM timestamp #-o

Personally, i'll do my best since the beginning of the round,
I have improved day after day, but unfortunately no time enough for me this week, and this is exactly the type of game which needs lot of time to learn patterns for each level :(
But bow down to you who managed to finish the game, and good luck for next round !

Maybe I will try more next week to see if I also can finish the game ...

The game is fun but I didn't like the leeching part with bosses :(
and also of course all power-ups (especially the red one) disappearing when you die :wink:

I had a 1,44 million replay, but well... uploading it or not, makes no sense now.
At least I got the first(*) place in one of the games. Have fun you all :D
(*) Though if that Chrono256's score didn't desync... I would be second there. Whatever, even a second place is source of satisfaction sometimes :)

Good luck next round, I just had things come up this week that weren't planned and I wasn't able to play at all. Sorry everyone :/

Wow i didn't think my score will be enough yesterday and if not, then it would have been my fault because i was waiting too much for you ^^

I finally had the luck to go still the 30th floor and make more points than play for the leech part in the boss where i had often problems.

Thank you for the battle.

Like you say, one source of satisfaction for me since the beginning of the k10 is the fact to beat my personnal bests and i did it everytime :-) Hope it will continue.

1. The MARP server is still approximately a half hour ahead of GMT time. TRB's score of 3,027,800 was submitted before the official GMT time of 23:59:59 and is accepted.

2. INNUENDO's score of 1,647,290 was submitted 4 hours after the deadline, but he already had a score of 1,565,000 confirmed that makes no difference in the result.

3. colman paolo's score of 3,948,600 was recorded back on Thursday and violates the 24-hour rule. Please don't sit on recordings as it goes against the spirit of good sportsmanship! (the previous score of 3,254,590 was legal and again, doesn't change anything in the result)

4. Paulo Valmir's recording is dangerously close to violating the 24-hour rule, but based on his time zone I believe it to be legal. Please don't cut these things this close though ;o



Definitely what can be considered some upsets in this round, four of the top 8 seeds were eliminated, including the top two. Just goes to show that anything can happen...
