Only a marginal improvement...

That forum maintenance put me dangerously close to the deadline. However, I'm thinking we may need a little extension (for posting, not for playing) because of that delay.

Finally back up from maintenance, and I see my score will not get me to the next round...
203,030.

No picture necessary, it seems.

[edit] wait, maybe it will!
the score: IMG_4151.JPG
the secret weapon: IMG_4154.JPG

...the proof of time to come...


{SECOND EDIT}
WP_000162.jpg
I took a picture of my camera screen with my phone's camera, to show the timestamp on my high score picture, 8:15 pm EST. The forums were already down for maintenance at that point, though I kept checking throughout the night. I posted my score quite literally the first moment I could access the forum; access was blocked until after midnight for me. Please accept my score!

These are the games left for Finals... now I could randomly add a second game to the Semi-final round, but I didn't get more then 2 votes of the remaining 6 or 7 people for this option.

5 games seems a lot to play in the two week final but it's possible ...

we can go ahead and play all 5....

OR...

a suggestion from you guys, may be considered.

For what its worth I stayed up until midnight and could not post.I worked all day and was not home until 9pm
I emailed the editors my score at 10:06pm. If you contct the editors m,y score is with them. So I did send in my score to the next available person.
Vocelli: 226010


If posting was not available at the deadline I believe this score should count. I just awoke and here I am.

To be technical, TD Kofoed score is posted past midnight too. Rules are rules!

Atari 2600 Knockout Round 17: has claimed its victim... DT Kofoed

However, he can still show up (everyone here too!) and post scores and be ranked for the semis and finals.

My vote would be to drop Reactor from the list. Once you figure it out then it becomes an "endurance" type of game. If I remember correctly it will take hours to roll. The other four are fun and can be completed in very reasonable amounts of time. Having four games to play, I think most will appreciate removing the endurace one from the list.

As much as I love playing Reactor, Toy has a good point. But it should only be dropped if the person who picked it is not in the KO anymore. If they're still alive, it should remain in the list for the finals.

If I was still in the KO and my game got dropped, I'd be a little miffed by that. :)

Thoughts?

Major bummer, but I suppose it's my fault for stopping play without seeing everyone else's updates. I ended up one spot why of my goal, a fifth place finish to tie my results from the last season. Oh well: Vocelli, its on you now to pull one out for us squeakers!

I have been a 'squeaker' for many weeks now.
You just coined a new term.
A Squeaker- (used in the Atari Knock-out Tourney) One who spend the last two days playing the Knock-out Atari game of the week and submitting their score on Sunday night just to squeak into the next round by finishing next to last or third from last.
That is me almost everyweek the past 5 weeks. (except for Kaboom!)
I might NOT be able to squeak this next week. i am out of town Saturday all day and Sunday until 6pm.
Might be able to squeak after 6pm on Sunday but might be too tired.

That was too close for my liking too...I played and played and played, but I just couldn't improve any more on my spot. Hopefully that won't be the case this week since it's my game that's being played. It would suck to get KO'ed in my own game.
