At some point late last night after many beers I got 128k on the first level. Than I tanked out and lost an electro level 4. Should have paused until morning lol.

Thought I could duplicate the strategy this morning, but got no where close. Worse yet, I felt like I was grinding pretty good to only get like 80k level one. I have no idea how I did that last night. 

@0xDEAFC0DE, guessing you have figured out more on scoring than my beat people up and run down the clock strategy. Look forward to hearing about it when its over. Hell of a score! Even if a lurker kicks you down to second, prerty well wraps up sports cat for you. Nicely done

Nah that's pretty much what I've been doing. 120k was around my best score for round one too. I did get to play a bit on emulator last night and got 300k in 3 round. But then I got four electrical rings in a row, and ended up dying in round 10. My score was only going to be a bit better anyway thanks to all the electrical rings.

Yeah, I just had a good run averaging 50k through the first three rounds, and got stopped in my tracks, losing on round 4.  Some of the guys are cheap bastards, and when they spawn in an electric ring, they're hard to fight against.

No, it would be worse because you died at round 10 instead of beating it. Progress then score. It is in the rules.

So I had this idea right when I had to leave the house and pretty well call it a day on this, so I didnt get to test it out. But I fight as the same guy the whole time. Its only the one guy who has the special power that zaps you to death. Its the character level 3 always starts with. If you used him as your bench guy, he probably wouldnt appear in the game at all making those electro levels way less dangerous. Not sure if that would work. Kicked myself for not thinking of it last night when the rhythm was rolling

You should probably wait and give it a try tomorrow.

Well, I'm currently playing Elite: Dangerous, so that may be how it rolls 😛 But who knows, space truckin' gets old sometimes when you're just shuttling between the same two locations repeatedly 😛

You should definitely finish playing that game then. No point in getting distracted.

Wow! Great score!! 

Thanks!  Got a bit lucky with the level selection - had one electric ring and two ice rings in the final 7 rounds, the rest were normal, so it really helped push the score a bit.  I don't know if I wanna bother going higher or not though...I think there's time for one more run, but I'm kinda MUSCLE'd out 😛

The scores have been great this week when the top 3 are all over 522k. That's awesome!

      Ladies and gentlemen, we are BACK with the last round of games of our beloved VGS NES Weekly Contest!
      To decide who will wear the laurels and claim the fame of being the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest Sports champion, we have one epic game of brutal action, where basketball meets street brawling!
      ARE YOU READY FOR Nekketsu Street Basketball?
      The rules are below:
      Pick battle mode (2nd option in the game) Pick 1P mode Pick Nekketsu as your team (first team in the screen) Pick US Navy as your opponent (second team in the screen) Pick the VEGAS stage to play on (second stage to the left, with the slot machines icon) Take your picture at the end of the match. Highest score difference for the Nekketsu team wins Participation: Beat the second team
      @0xDEAFC0DEhas a very comfortable 4 points lead over @NESfiend, who is the only who can challenge him for the Sports title this year.
      For Nesfiend to win, he needs to win this week and hope @0xDEAFC0DE doesn't score over 6th place, since he will be tied on most wins, but loses on the 2nd tie breaker, most 2nd places.
      Will he be able to pull such a miracle to claim the crown? Time will tell!
      The contest ends Sunday, 09/26/21 at midnight Brasilia time. Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.  Good luck everyone and have fun
