What, exactly, should my screenshot look like? Can I update scores for the qualifier?

Just like the way Maistlin did his score. That’s a really good example.

And yes, you can submit as many scores as you want. In fact I’d recommend putting in a lot of them since the goal is to finish in the top four.

Leader-board:

^1. devourer359
^2. Blizzard2000
^3. MyNameIsNothing
^4. tracymirkin123

Hmph, I have alts in interesting places. Rawr.

I don’t know if you guys are joking or not, but it should not have to be said that there is an absolute no alt policy. If anybody is found in this tournament participating with multiple accounts being controlled by the same user then every associated account will be disqualified on the spot.

Edit Ok, I’m pretty sure Jizzard2k is UZZ. But I still feel that this should be mentioned.

Agreed. I’m sending Josh in to do my dirty work.;)

Wanted to put in a score.

This wasn’t my best run but I haven’t been able to break 40k. Good luck in the finals.

I was thrown off as well. I assumed it was 3 days after the Running group deadline (Dec 4), not 3 days after hiperson’s announcement (Dec 3). But the spreadsheet says today, so I don’t know.

Yes. That’s exactly what I thought. Wasn’t this round supposed to last longer than three days?

I would like to request a time extension until tomorrow, hip.

What the hell. That’s barely three days. In most of the earlier rounds, it was closer to four days than three and we had a game switch on top of that.

I agree. We need Hip to come back and change the game.

I like untouchable. It’s a fun game but it’s too easy to exploit the scoring system. There are lots of points where you can farm for enemies and that just takes all the fun away.

I’d rather play something more appropriate for the semi-finals. A game without an easily exploitable scoring system.

I’d much prefer simply limiting the amount of kills you can have for an acceptable score to 350, or maybe even less.

There are other ways to exploit the game, besides killing lots of enemies. I’m sure you guys have noticed that the score still tallies when the boss is in it’s immunity stage.

You could potentially grind out an incredible score by shooting the boss when it’s invulnerable. That wouldn’t have any affect on the total number of enemies you killed.

The good news: you can choose the games for the semi-finals.
The bad news: the choices are:
Running group – Canabalt, Canabalt or um… say Canabalt.
Retro group – Atomic Super Boss, Ne Touchez Pas, or Snakes on a Cartesian Plane.
You have 24 hours to cast your vote. Go!

None of the above.

Hmm. I resign, nothing personal hiperson but you mentioned a couple of times that you weren’t prepared for this tournament and it kind of shows. I will still be around for spread-sheeting, (and if the next host reads this, I am happy to continue in the next tournament if they want). I look forward to competing next time.

I’ve played in some badly run tournaments. I mean terrible. This one hasn’t been bad.

I’m out because a score counter doesn’t want to accept my score. If you ask him he’ll tell you that he saw my score, death screen and all and has the pics or did. But I guess that doesn’t count as a submission. And I don’t want to take part in a tourney where those in charge of updating the scores refuse to accept proof of submission as being equal to a normal submission despite circumstances that are out of the participants control. I had to take care of a kitten all day yesterday while my sister was on the computer and I was forced to do schoolwork as soon as I woke up today. I’m sorry if I’m the only one who thinks that shit but I can’t see me continuing to participate in such farce.

I don’t understand why you thought Blizzard would accept your score if it hadn’t been posted in the thread.

Posting your score in the tournament thread is a lot like showing your hand in poker. It’s not the same thing if you just show the cards to another player. You’ve got to put them face down so that everyone can see what you’ve got.

I have to say that doing a ninja is the least satisfying way to win a tournament. I have ninja’d some very good gamers in the past and I’ve always felt it was a cheap way out because I knew there was always a good chance they’d break my score if they found out what it was.

I don’t have much respect for that playing style but I fully admit that it does work.

@TrophyMaster. Your score is 4 hours late. IMO, it shouldn’t be accepted if it’s even five minutes late but I don’t understand why you are being eliminated, since you had 393.:?

I am opposed to this change. This has been the longest round by far and this rule change is coming within the last two days.

We are all aware of that. Because that was me.

Not even close.
