    I didnt announce the winner early, the winner was announced 3 minutes after the deadline. keyONE submitted his score around 23:57 apprantley, but due to a bug in the arcade system the score didnt submit and by the time he had sent me the screenshot the winner had been announced and sent the key. There is no way I could have taken away a key after giving it. The screenshot was never deleted, it was moved to the Admin section for us to discuss what we can do. We eventually agreed to ask members for more keys and give him one of them AS WELL. Meaning we would be giving out two keys for one contest. It took us a few days to get one and when I went to send him one, he had already posted over the forum how the contest is fraud and how we are giving keys to friends, despite having no relation to ANY of the contest winners and saying staff can't take part.

    The thing that annoys me the most is we are getting nothing from these contest, it would be easier (and more popular for us) to give them away to friends so we could play with them. Instead we decided to share them out, but too many people needed keys so the best way to decide who gets them was to do a free contest and that's what we have been doing. If people continue to act like assholes we won't bother again. Problem with keyONE is he couldn't wait even though we explained the situation and ended up instead just attacking us. So there you go, if you want the key that was for him, play the bonus game.

    Give us a chance, I've been at work and unable to read my messages... Access given.

    OK, then you did not give him the key. But banning him, just because he made it public? I hope, you will not ban me, if we will have a conflict :P

    He was not banned for making anything public. He was banned because he was promised a key, even though someone else had already won the contest and nobody had to give him a key, and still he didn't have the decency to wait and just started spamming the forums about the contest being fraudulent. There's a saying that fits here: Don't bite the hand that feeds.

    Most likely cheating, a glitch or bug.

    @Thats the way it is - how could you have made your score that fast twice? I've been playing extremely long to get those 2milions - the only way to survive is to always watch about one cannonball and don't care about the other stuff. Maybe it's wasting time but it worked well for me. What was your tactic on survival in lvl 13? I'm just curious because you made your second score really fast (I've checked). I hope no one will try to beat my domination score :D

    Second thing is, that there is a surprise in the game at about 1950000: The game stops spawning green powerups after you pick that surrounding wall and floods with red powerups and after that no powerups spawns. I dont think I was just unlucky but it stops spawning them for sure. I was ensuring that for few minutes.

    BTW @Assasin nice avatar (I see u also love Kona Chan :D)

    Due to a lack of players, we have changed Game 2 from "Invite Only" to having an account older than 14 days. This then opens the game up for people who have been around for a while and havent had a chance to win a key because of all the new members signing up for keys getting really high scores. Rewarding loyalty ;)
