Subject: Longest Reign at the top?

Written By: whistledog on 11/16/06 at 3:57 am

What is the longest that you held the top position in one of the games?

My longest reign(s) are "Triathalon" and "Asteroids" which I both got on January 10, 2006 and surprisingly still have.  The very first top score I had was "Sk8 Prison" (January 6, 2006), but I unseated myself several times after ;D

I also reached the top in "Tetris" on January 7 of '06, and was finally defeated in June by some dude named KitKat

The longest crown I've had thus far has been on Quix. I've been the champ of that game since Valentine's Day...so that was nine months ago already! :D

it would appear so

It's coming on close to a year that we've had the arcade

Yes...I believe we got it back in January. Right now, though, we don't have it at all.

But that's okay with me for now.

Well, we've had the arcade for a wee bit more than a year now...and Marsh (formerly known as YWN, Sheth, Strawberry Fields) has the longest reign at the top with his score on Duck Hunt, which he's held for a whole year.

In a technical sense, I have the longest reign at the top.  I've held the top score in Sk8 Prison since January 6 (Marsh got Duck Hunt on January 7), but I keep on getting better scores, and no one has ever dethroned me MWHAHA

That makes sense, since you dethroned yourself.

I dethroned myself on Tetris in November, toppling a score I had achieved in July.

You beat yourself, who beat the person that beat me.  I honestly never thought I'd lose that Tetris score ;D

There are lots of scorers in the arcade who register just for the games.  Many of them have dethroned a few of my scores  :\'(

Well...on Valentine's Day of last year, I achieved a top score on Quix. That crown stood until last nite or so, when ^ finally toppled me.

So now my longest reign on top is my Mumu crown, which has stood since the beginning of last July.

And with that new score you got, You will probably be champ of that game for a very long time :o


My longest reign at the top is now Diamond Chaser (which I have held since January 2006).  It used to be Triathalon, but that game was removed cause it sucked and no one but me was playing it lol

I remember that game, but I never played it. ::) There was also a game called KerryBushBash which also got removed; someone had held the top spot on that one since early last year. I guess that game sucked too?

The dialog was funny the first few times, but of course you are getting sucky scores then 'cause you're figuring out the game. By the time you are good at scoring points, you hate the dialog and wish they'd both just stfu.

under your old account, that is. I notice that when someone takes one of the top ten longest championships, it still remains there, but the amount of time doesn't show up in bold. It remains there until the difference between that amount of time, and the one below it, reaches zero minutes...and it slips below.

I noticed that too. It means that both Marshal's top score (for "Duck Hunt") and mine (for "Roulette", where I unseated myself) will eventually drop out of the Top 10. Just a matter of time.

Yup...and when someone finally gets the crown on 'Bloody Pingu', that one'll eventually drop below a game which is currently in the 3rd position (I forget what it's called, but I know that Red Ant is the champ of that game). I don't know why it doesn't just disappear...could be the way that the Arcade was set up.

Counting the times I've beaten my own scores, I've been champion of ...

Ponx (since January 2006)
Sk8 Prison (January 2006)
Twin Sonice (April 2006)

Of the games that still exist in the arcade from the originals, Sk8 Prison was the first ever championship I got when the Arcade first began



OMG... :o...Somebody FINALLY beat Lovechild of Oscar Wilde at Duck Hunt... :D


I wonder how long it took this royboy person to get that score.  I got half way to Marsh's score and it took me if (I remember correctly) close to 5 hours

It took me roughly that long to get my best-ever Tetris score, which Katkit Bar yanked away from me last June.

Oh man... That would mean royboy has wasted spent about 12 hours, just to get a top score on a game like Duck Hunt?!?  ??? It's insane I tells ya.

If not longer.  It's such a boring game, it's not even worth playing for a half hour lol

And I wasn't even aiming to just get another trophy.  I just wanted to knock you off the top so that game would disappear from the longest champions list.  Of all the trophies that I have, I am not in that Top 10 list yet LOL

The game has a glitch, right? No one can keep his aim right for over 12 hours.

That's probably because you keep unseating yourself.

The ducks never change speed, so you could keep your aim perfect for as long as you can keep awake playing it.  On the original 80s version for the Nintendo, with each level you advance, the ducks fly faster.  If that challenge was here, it would be a better game that is fun lol

Kind of makes me which that still counted for longest reigns at the top.  It's like that old saying goes "I've no one to beat but myself" lol

Drag-n-drop, that was it. I knew you'd been holding the top spot on at least two of the games since the Arcade began in early '06.
