I might have. I'll double check now.

...Yes, I did. Standings revised. Sorry about that.

The difficulty really ramps up once the flying jets start to come out. I used to think the jets would just fly directly into you, but if they pass you up and DON'T manage to crash into you on first try, they start to circle around you and aren't hard to pick off once they start that. OF course , I was bewildered the first time I saw this so I didn't think it was all that easy at first.

Sometimes the jets seem to crash into the background trees. Or are they being shot by the enemy cannons? If they crash into the trees, you could hide behind them as your movement strategy.

Kudos to Cafeman for beating his older score and coming within a hair of beating mine! Yeah, it definitely gets harder with those jets! I never really developed a strategy for dealing with them other than trying to complete the level as quickly as possible.

There's been a lot of really tight matches this season. Looking forward the rematches in future seasons... I suspect some of them will be epic!
