Well done finalists, I clearly didn’t put enough time/effort into this round. Thanks for the tourney, I probably won’t join another one for a while until I can really put the time in.

Oh fuck this shit. I’m not doing this. I’ll just not send you my video and you can make it so I don’t pass the semifinals, so Ben can make it.

No way, you got me, take your spot in the finals. so I don’t have to play these games ;)

:(

Why does a video proof requirement mean no use of glitches? There are a couple interesting glitches in this game and I think we should be allowed to use them. Most speedruns outside of Kong make heavy use of glitches. (much more than is possible in this game)

Edit: All is good, Shawn was just starting rumors. ;)

Decent run, could be a lot better. Spent 20 seconds dying in the stupidest ways possible on level 6.

I assume my Warning Forgone score wasn’t counted as I wasn’t on the final screen of the game, but my score doesn’t seem to register with Kong unless I reload the browser. I don’t understand why it shouldn’t count, as you can look it up on the Kongregate high scores board, and my screenshot shows that I achieved it during the competition.

You can refresh the scores without reloading the browser by changing the mode (Score/Best stage) or going to a different page of the high scores. If that doesn’t work for some reason you can post two separate screenshots.

I’m not going to be around by the end of the round so I’m going to post the last round tomorrow. My IRL had a messed up week and I had some problems in finding the right moment to organize properly these last two rounds so instead of giving two random games, I’ll try to use the ones I planned to, but I’ll need a bit more time. Round 8’s deadline is not extended.

Looks like spreadsheet timer is still wrong, because 7/28/2014 7 PM (GMT+2) is in 40 minutes.
Edit: I fixed it.

40 minutes left!

If you also think Cardinal Quest gives too much of an advantage to who already played it a lot (and there are people that did, due to it having an imp), report that to Best, he said he would change it if enough people think that.

I don’t agree with that reasoning for a game change. It could be said about many games that have a certain complexity. The game isn’t unreasonably long and there is a lot of info/guides on how to get a good score. (I’ll discreetly drop a link here.) If anything, I would ask Best to extend the round 1 or 2 days.

Congrats AU. You deserve the win.

I initially planned to skip Rogue Soul and win the other two, but then you went and destroyed my William and Sly score. (I think that’s 70 seconds you beat me by?) Would love to know your strategy; I thought my route and execution was pretty good.

Extremely close finals. I reached 35k reward at least 4 times and choked. :( I stupidly didn’t realize the importance of combos on my 9.2k run. Anyway, although I lost I enjoyed competing with you again.

I would like to share my treasures hunt run, because I thought the route I found was pretty cool. Uploading that now.

Thanks for the tourney Prec, good stuff as always.
