Andrew Barrow got to the RBS on Hard!
« on: October 05, 2018, 05:41:00 pm »
So Andrew becomes only the second person to see the RBS on Hard level with a score of 3,246,000.  I would recommend people to check the replay out.  He did a fantastic job, and got out of more than a few jams.  Very entertaining to watch.  So congrats to Andrew Barrow the legend!  8)

Glad I saw it live - knowing how close he was with only a few lives remaining, I was probably more anxious than he was!

Great accomplishment on such a tough game...Barra the beast!

I caught much of it live, luckily. Barra is a Master, end of discussion. I've come to appreciate DK3 A LOT more, but I've got to focus on DK KS first. Great game Andrew.

Congrats Barra mate! It's great that we're finally at a point where someone is just about half as good as Riley at DK3.  Kappa

In all seriousness, fantastic job sir. You've put another notch in your belt as a great gamer, you've helped boost interest in a not-terrible game, and in a roundabout way shown just how amazing Riley is at DK3.

Thanks mates for the love, and Jry for verifying <3

As I said, it was one of the toughest things to grind for. Simply grueling.
Really hoping this grind inspires more people to take up the challenge. The game is incredibly fun, but also incredibly difficult. There isn't many other games requiring this level of multi-tasking.

I tracked each life and came up with a few stats for fun:

Deaths per board type:
  • Grey: 25/37 = 68%
  • Blue: 9/37 = 24%
  • Gold: 3/37 = 8%
  • 5-man score was 676,200
  • 28 extras were banked at 990k, excluding the man in play
  • Board 82 was the first time the average fell below the required for the RBS
  • The second to last man was my 2nd biggest, which I sac'd on stage 158 for the super spray. It looked like I was going to fall short but managed 207k on this guy. Biggest was 220k (9th life)

Great job mate, crazy score
In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

I love the chart, and definitely think we have found the chart to use for all major future DK3 game from here on out.
