We are at the end of the first week in the Survivor Series, halfway to the end of the first round, and what a week it has been! Five players have already managed 1 million point games and two have managed 1.1 million. Serphintizer is sitting in first place with 1,189,700 and rayfinkel is a close second with 1,105,500. So far 49 players have submitted scores and the cut line is hovering close to 650k. The overall level of play has been amazing throughout the field and quite a few players have posted kill screens.  On July 14th at 11:59pm UTC the field will be cut in half with the top half advancing to the second round. If you are not in the top half now you still have almost a full week to improve your scores... so get out there and get gaming!

If you are not entered in the tournament but would like to be, you still have time to register and play with us.

We are down to the final day of scoring for round 1 in the Survivor Series tournament. As of this posting it appears the cut line will be somewhere around 720k - 750k but this can change at any time. Do not give up and keep grinding to get those submissions in!

If you haven't registered and you would like to play, you have until Tuesday July 14th at 11:59pm UTC time to submit a score. This is a HARD  CUTOFF!

Remember, no matter your skill level, there are other awards to compete for in our Jumpman's Point Race including Rookie of the Year and Most Improved Player. These Jumpman's Point Race contests are for players of all skill levels in the Donkey Kong community.

Survivor Series, the first of three featured events, kicked off the 2020 Jumpman Points Race and players didn?t waste any time putting up premium scores. The tournament drew an initial field of 57 competitors with several distinguished current and former world record holders competing.

SithOfSpades got things started early with a live Kill Screen of 925,600 on the very first night of the event. Serphintizer put up an early round 1 score that put him squarely in the lead. Players scored early and often, driving the cut line up to an astonishing 704,000 for round 2! Lakeman421 got in just before the round 2 cut and filled out the field of seven advancing to round 3.

Lakeman421 was able to put up an amazing game throwing down a score of 1,248,100, one of two 1.2 million point games he was able to produce in the final round that just blew away the rest of the field. Coming in second was Serphintizer, who put up another excellent score with 1,179,600. Finishing in third was WFLIMusic with 1,159,400. Rounding out the Surviving Seven in order were Barra, KIG666, up2ng, and rayfinkel.

Please join Kong League congratulating Lakeman421, our first ever Sole Survivor! May he always be recognized as the first player in history to hold the World Record and Sole Survivor titles concurrently!

A big thanks to everyone who participated for making this event such a success. There were lots of great scores and a lot of great streaming during the tournament. Remember to check the Kong League Discord for upcoming tournaments and active August bounties.

The Donkey Kong Online Open gets underway on 8/20/2020 to serve as the second leg in the Jumpman Points Race and is open to all competitors.
