@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

On the plus side, I know it's entirely doable on this stage.  It's just a matter of luck really. 

If you could go ahead and find 5 other people who find it entirely doable and make sure you and all of them get it done by sunday, that would be great. Barring that, Ill go ahead and congratulate deaf on winning sports cat now and just try to salvage second. Well deserved win my friend

Well, according to the FAQ for the game, the Vegas level awards points differently based on the slot machine in the background.  So with good luck, the same number of baskets on a 60 point game could potentially put you at a 200 point game.  Just a matter of luck.

A big tip I found is to basically just beat the piss out of the other team with your player and let the computer do the work.  Each of the various settings pre-game are essentially saying what your commands to the AI are with and without the ball.  Hit right twice and the A button with the ball is to tell him to shoot high.  The top basket is worth more points.  Hit B to tell him to shoot if the enemies are near him, but if he's clear, aim high as much as possible.  If the CPU player is set to either Kunio or the other good one (can't remember offhand), then he'll make the shot more often than not, and with some slot luck the points will rack up.  It's definitely possible to get a good score with minimal effort, just gotta be lucky.

NGL, for my 177 score I kept resetting until I got a triple 7 on the first basket. The other games I played and the rest of that game had pretty average luck on the slots.

I also suck at the game, so it's easier to let the computer do the work for me 😛

What was that bit again about me not having the skills 😝

Although, TBF that didn't stop me from peaking at the code a bit to see how the slot machine was implemented. But don't worry, it's not manipulatable. The randomness updates every second frame, making it nearly impossible to hit the same seed.

      Hello and welcome, players!
      Be prepared, for this week you will have to rely on your fists, feet, knifes and machine guns to make through P.O.W.!
      This week will decide who will claim the crown to the Beat 'em up genre, proving they are the best bare hand fighter at VGS!
      @mbd39 currently leads the Beat 'em up scoreboard, with 23 points. Right behind him we have @NESfiend with 22 points, Krunch is creeping really close to both of them with 21 points.
      The three of them are the only ones with a chance to claim the title!
      So, without further ado, here's the rules
      Play until Game Over No point racking If you score less than 20,000 points, be ready to take your picture at the Game Over screen (it doesn’t stay up long) If you score more than 20,000 points, start a new game to get your score Each extra life remaining after beating the game adds 5000 points to your score. Highest score wins GENRE: Beat ‘Em Up

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
