What “the Kongregate King” is

The Kongregate King is a Kongregate competition hosted by me and with help from Jacob, Payton, Selly, Wii and VG.

Kongregate competitions are tournaments in which players wanting to participate post a screenshot of a score of the game (in the Qualifier round it’ll be any score higher than the score shown will get to the next round, in the other rounds, if your score is too low, you cannot get to the following round).

In each round, if you’d like to get to the next one, you’ll have to post a good enough score. You can know if your score is bad or good by checking if you’re in the “Red Zone” (which are the players whose names are highlighted in red in the spredsheet as they can’t get through to the next round), you can see if you are in it, by checking out the spreadsheet.

No hacking is allowed. Don’t fool us, we’ll know if you have hacked the game or edited the screenshot. If you spot someone with a modified score, do not say it publicly, whisper me and we’ll look in to it.

Screenshots must have your green plug on the top right of the chat proving you’re signed in and the highscores tab under the Today tab, so that we can see the screenshot is from today. In the screenshot, we must see your scores tab with your score and your score in the game must be matching.

At the end of the tournament, the winner will be unofficially claimed as “the Kongregate King”.

Spreadsheet

We made a spreadsheet in which we’ll update the current score, link to the games and show who has qualified for the next round. To see the spreadsheet, simply go to http://bit.ly/TheKongregateKing.

Oh, if you want to know what game it is, it’s Particles. I’m guessing a 100 score.

The competition guideline will be written by Jaume very soon.

It’s a competition. Basically, to enter, get a score of x (likely about 100) in the game Particles. Jaume just accidentally created the topic before he had the text though.

Minor nitpick.

No hacking is allowed. Don’t fool us, we’ll know if you have hacked the game or editted the screenshot.

It’s edited, not editted. Anyway, yes, we have magic powahz to detect hacks.

You may as well post it now, be FIRST!

Also, Jaume, maybe you should add a link to that image capturing tool.

I would have a better score, but I’m lagging right now. Need to restart Fire Fox.

VG, you probably should have screenied the high scores tab. Even though your score is in mine and Samster’s.

Knew I forgot something! I really needed to restart Fire Fox before, so that may be why I missed doing that. Anyway, I’ll most likely post more screenies due to better scores.

If the scores even matter in the quals. It hasn’t been specified yet.

Managed to do a lot better now that the lag is gone. This isn’t my personal best, but it’s been quite a while since I got this high. My personal best is 255 seconds.

Okay, all the scores have been added to the spreadsheet.

Qualifier

The Qualifier round officially starts now (screenshots before it officially started do count)!

In this round, to qualify for the Kongregate King, simply manage to get a score of 100 or over in Particles.

Example screenshot:

So, good luck to all! Any amount of players can participate in the Qualifier round, so feel free to try your best and post your score here!

This round will end at 8:00 p.m. (UTC+12) on 9 September 2010.
