It looks like a few of us have beat our PB in DKO2. Will we have to submit our score twice? Once for the tourney and once for the overall DK high score list or will it be taken care of automatically?  <Mruczek>

If you get a new PB in the tournament, you must submit it to the HSL separately. It's not done automatically, because not everyone will necessarily want to submit the score for whatever reason, so you have to let the HSL maintainers know that you do indeed want it on there.

The aggregate scoreboard was programmed to be the rankings of everyone's best DKO score.  The sum of the scores is somewhat meaningless because everyone will participate in a different # of DKO's.  It would be like ranking the DKO's by the sum of all your scores for the weekend.  Some people may only get 1 game, some people may play all weekend.  Also the seeding for KO4 is likely to be based on your best performance, not the sum.

Aggregate to me means "combined."  I guess combined scoreboard could have either meaning too.  If someone can suggest a better word to convey the intended meaning, I'll change it.  Best?  Max?  I don't know.

I'm with Hank. I wasn't sure how that aspect was going to work, but "aggregate" is a very loosely-defined word. In this case I guess it's "the combination of everybody's best scores." I think this is the only sensible way to do it. Doing some sort of best-score average thing opens up a lot of potential problems and questions of fairness.

That is an excellent clip Hank!

I managed to finish strong, though I will likely go down as the whiniest winner in DKOpen history, as I was more focused on complaining about No Hammer and my complete brain fart on level 20-6 than celebrating my tournament victory.

I desperately wanted that first man million -- so much so, I suddenly forgot how to play, and spun out of control.

Apologies again.  I don't think I said anything too harsh (except everyone now knows just exactly how I feel about No Hammer), though it was no way to celebrate another amazing DKopen weekend.

Thank you to the organizers and all who competed.

Chris is correct. If anyone has achieved a new PB during the tourney PLEASE submit it to the HSL in the Score Submissions thread.

"Cumulative" is similar to "aggregate" in that it suffers from ambiguity.

How about a generic phrase like "Overall Ranking" (or just "Overall") ?
