Welcome to the 22nd Kongregate Tournament and the first ever Survivor: Kongregate! As you may have guessed, this entire competition is structured around, well, surviving, whether it’s slaying wave after wave of zombies or running from giant alien robots. So, if you’re a fan of games like Canabalt and Tower of Greed, this tournament will be loads of fun for you. If not…well…this is going to be a bit difficult.
Before we get started, I want to make a few things clear:
One account per person
I’m instituting this rule because I don’t want the final round to be between one person and another person with four alts. Each person gets one account to compete in the tournament. Anyone caught using multiple accounts will have all their accounts disqualified.
Don’t do anything to gain an unfair advantage
Basically, don’t hack/glitch/cheat. This includes (but is not limited to), using programs like Cheat Engine to modify the game code/variables, editing your screenshots to show better scores, or using another person’s account. Anyone caught breaking this rule will have their scores invalidated and be automatically disqualified. If you suspect another player of hacking/cheating/glitching, DO NOT POST IT IN THIS THREAD. Instead, send me a private message, and I will look into it.
Pics or it didn’t happen
Screenshots are ALWAYS required as proof of a score. As much as I would like to believe that you got an amazing score, I will be needing a screenshot. Each game has its own screenshot requirements, so check each round. For screenshot help, go here.
Probably the most important and least cited rule. The whole point of this is to play some games and have fun. Just relax.
First place will win bragging rights and a custom avatar. Also, there MAY be a game prize or Kreds in the form of a GameStop gift card; this will depend on how the competition goes.
So, you want to become the Kongregate Survivor, eh? Great! In order to enter, all you have to do is prove your electric-spike and laser dodging skills by climbing at least 150 meters in / ESCAPE \, then post a screenshot. The first 120 of you to submit your score by Friday, December 9th at 11:00 PM Pacific Time (Kongregate Time or GMT-8:00) will be accepted. Alternately, if we reach 120 people before then, the round will be automatically closed.
The screenshot must contain:
-Your score in the Game Over screen as shown
-Your ranking in the Today tab, with your name and score visible
-The green plug and your username in the upper right hand corner
You can see your progress and current ranking in the spreadsheet here. If your screenshot does not have all three of these, you will be asked to resubmit your score.
Good luck, and let the competition begin!
