See, last round Ruroken was playing Josh, and this round the winner was going to play you/Wii but neither of them posted anything, so that’s what the redemption round is for. Whoever wins redemption gets to fite you.

I think Shawner will be in trouble if he has to face me. My “inactive strategy” is tearing my opponents to shreds.

Just don’t submit a score.

I’m really not enjoying the tournament much right now and I don’t want to waste more time arguing about this.

I’m going to drop out.

Good luck to everyone left.

Lou, no, if you win at Edgey and Ruro wins at ZM you still win.

Josh, it was obvious that by “score” I meant total of the round, like if you had an actual extension. You didn’t tie his score, you got 55 seconds behind.

I beat his score on Achievement Unlocked and failed to do so on Lint. That would have resulted in a tie.

You never specified that both scores had to be beaten. I didn’t break them both, so it’s fair to not award me the incentive. But I shouldn’t be penalized either!

I told you to forfeit if you had any problems. You didn’t make it, so you get the penalty: your task choice this round is the default.

What are you talking about? I did beat his score and you never said I had to beat them both.

Since you’re so upset about this, you have 24 hours to beat Dark’s score for last round. If you make it (which I’m pretty sure you won’t) I’ll give you something extra on a later round.

Penalizing me for tying his score is cheap. What grounds do you have to penalize me on?

And I had already picked the first nine levels of Mr. Bounce for my speed run.

I’d like to use Mr.Bounce as the challenge game. Fastest times in the first 9 levels.

I had absolutely no time to play today.:(

Here’s the first one.

My computer seems to have some kind of a problem with Lint. I’m not sure why but it often freezes up when I load it.

It only started doing this a few days ago. That’s why I didn’t request a game change.

Because you already had 7 days apart from it.

It’s not the duration of the round that’s the problem. Against certain players, you have to know what’s going on in the last few hours.

Of course it helps to have an extremely high score in the first place. But even then, you’re still at a disadvantage if they know what your final score is.

1. It’s only a major holiday in one country of over 100.
2. It’s been on that date for over a week, so why are you asking that now?
3. Because that’s how the timing worked out?

But why couldn’t the round have been extended by a day? A lot of us celebrate thanksgiving and trying to get a score in while you have family and friends over is very difficult.

Why is this round being ended on a major holiday?! I honestly thought it had ended yesterday.

Lebossle, can you please reschedule this?! Give us a time extension?

Let this be fair warning to anyone who might compete against me in future rounds.

Don’t underestimate me.

First five levels:

Level 1
Level 2
Level 3
Level 4
Level 5

Is strategy sharing still required or just by request/and submission of requestee

Why would you warn them

He’s just sending out a message to us.

Uhm, what? Please think for 2 seconds more on this. There has been one entire round already, and nobody reported any confusion then, and basically nothing different happened this time around.

Really?

I’ll start with this:

Ok, I’ve been GREATLY confused by these rules.

I thought we were picking a game for the other person to play ( I challenge you to game x and you challenge me to game y.) instead, we’re each picking a game to be used as a speed run.

Topic: Kongregate / [TOURNAMENT] [Redemption Round] The Kongregate Duels

Do you have to pick a game for the challenge and does it have to be a speedrun?

Personally, I would be fine with playing Achievement Unlocked.

And I’d like to bring back my video journal idea from Thijsel’s gaming tournament. I’ll upload a video for every round that I play in.

Here’s my video for the qualifying round. I actually recorded my run of 53 for Man in Gap.

Um, no I haven’t used anywhere near half of my stuff. The stuff released was basic, yet still very useful.

It’s like you’re trying to sell one of those “Self Help” book clones that all spout a bunch of meaningless nonsense and positive outlook bullshit with little real content.

Actually, that’s exactly what you’re trying to do. I can’t imagine that wanting to communicate with people off-site is anything other than an attempt to either get money out of them or otherwise sucker them into benefiting you. That, combined with your attempts to make the setup sound exclusive (And, making the “sample video” limited time) makes this entire setup sound really shady.

Ok, just to clarify, nobody is obligated to give me anything. I’m not asking for your money.

I have years of experience as a gaming competitor. During that time I achieved a lot of success using some of these tactics to win gaming titles. I developed a formula which is very effective and it will improve your ability (as it’s goal oriented material.)

I’m not screwing anybody here. I just don’t have a lot of time to compete anymore and I’m not that interested in winning a lot more tournaments (I’ve already accomplished everything I wanted.)

Really, this information is just sitting. Which is a shame. It could be used to benefit gamers, who actually want to get good at this stuff.

You want to win a tournament but don’t know how. I know how and am willing to show you. What’s wrong with that?

If the video quality isn’t up to par, just tell me. The content IS solid.

I’m going to release one more sample video. This one covers the basics for how you want to start off the tournament.

Be warned that the link is coming down within 48 hours. This information is too good to keep it up here forever.

Enjoy!

Thanks Daddy, forgot this. Deadline for definition of tasks: less than 15 hours from now. If you don’t post a task, you’ll automatically use Particles and lose any ties.

Why not make Particle the game for the first round?

The challenge aspect is BS IMO.

Also, please take into consideration that we all have a history with each other. I’ve been competing against most of these guys for two or three years.

We all know each others strengths and weaknesses. I’m going to face either Darkboy or Best in the second round and I already know what game I’m going to choose. Depending on who I face.

Lebossle,

These rules are too subjective. How can you possibly determine which player moves on to the next round (especially if both players in the same bracket, complete the task.)

Having a single elimination style tournament is fun (even a double.) I think you should just pick the games and leave it at that.

I will be recording more videos like this in the future. However, most of them are only going to be available for my subscriber list.

Getting on the list is easy, just send me an email JoshDragon@mail.com with the word “Add” written in the subject line.

What video?

The link got removed, but here’s a summary: “To do well, visualize yourself doing well. Pick someone you think is likely to win, and imagine doing better than them.”

Sure it’s not the most useful advice, but I’m still unclear as to why it was removed.

Actually, it’s really about having a standard. Visualizing can be useful but that’s an entirely different point. You need to hold your standard to your opponent’s level.

In other words, you refuse to quit until you’ve beaten their score.

I also believe that you need to embrace the challenges you get. If you draw the top seed in the tournament, don’t look at it as a bad thing.

You’re going to eventually face him anyway. Instead, look at this as an opportunity for you to prove yourself.

Hopefully you’ve had the chance to check out the video. If not please do so.

Now, it’s your turn. I’m curious. I want to develop a kick-ass program to help you, get the most out of your game. Tell me where you’re falling off in these tournaments and let’s see if I can make this package better.
