The Race to 1m Bounty
« on: August 09, 2015, 11:12:15 am »
One thing that has been of great interest to me lately is the number of players currently engaged in a race to their first million. I'd like to add a little bit of incentive for the players in the race to keep grinding and not lose motivation.

I will pay $200 to the first player to score their first ever million-point game before 12:01AM eastern September 1st.

Eric Tessler has added $300 the pot.
Ethan Daniels has added $100 to the pot.
Robbie Lakeman has added $50 to the pot.
Daniel Desjardins has added $50 to the pot.
Steve Grunberger has added $50 to the pot.
Jeremy Young has added $25 to the pot.
The total pot stands at $775 now!


Rules:
  • Arcade and MAME are both eligible.
  • Your game must be submitted to both DKF and Twin Galaxies. If you are banned from DKF, you can submit to MARP in its place. If this is an Arcade performance, a single submission to TG will be sufficient.
  • Your game must be streamed live on Twitch. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Prize Money Payouts:
1st Player to 1m (Andrew Barrow) - $350
2nd Player to 1m (John McCurdy) - $200
3rd Player to 1m - $100
4th Player to 1m - $75
5th Player to 1m - $50


Good luck to everyone involved!

I have some difficulties to overcome in trying to participate in this, but I will try to do so. Lit?  Kreygasm

I just moved and put my DK machine into storage, but I should be receiving my wiring harness for my 60-in-1 cab (which I didn't put into storage) in the next few days here. I'll also try to see if my dinosaur of a computer can handle streaming anymore.

    Very generous contest!

    I'm not in the contest, but just curious on a couple of things since I haven't been active on the boards lately. Has there been some sort of merger with TG and DKF? I was curious why you were requiring submissions to be made here and TG, and if arcade, TG only. Or are you just helping TG get submissions?

    And second, I thought twitch recordings weren't accepted for TG.[/list]
