DK Scoreboard Poll - Number of Lives Setting
« on: March 29, 2016, 04:20:38 am »

One point of clarification, in order to keep the poll question relatively succinct:


Score achieved = The player's score after the first 4 deaths (or 3, if no bonus life was awarded)


DK High Score 
1,064,500
  (L22-1)
DK Level 1-1 
13,400
DK No Hammer 
535,300
  (L15-2)

Often times when a bill is proposed in Congress, it has gone through so many compromises that there are tons of weird extra things thrown in. This poll would be much more interesting if it read "Should we allow scores using 6+1 settings to the main High Score List, un-ban JCB from tournament play, AND let Brian Allen back into the shout box?"

Yep, I voted yes.  So it's 16 people who are wrong, and one person who is right.  8)

In certain situations, I think a community decison should allow for acceptance of 6man scores (such as a live machine with the wrong dips).  But otherwise, 6man scores should not be accepted to the normal list.  I voted no. :)
