Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His High Scores Getting Removed

Share

Several of Mitchell's high scores were disputed earlier this year by a forum poster claiming he used an emulator to record his scores, rather than a standard arcade cabinet.

Last week, pro arcade gamer Billy Mitchell was stripped of his world-record high scores on Donkey Kong and Pac-Man after Twin Galaxies launched an investigation and determined he violated guidelines in attaining his high scores. This lead to both Twin Galaxies and the Guinness World Records removing all his scores from their books. "The use of MAME or any other emulation software for submission to these leader boards is strictly forbidden".

But last Friday, Guinness World Records acted in accordance with Twin Galaxies's ruling by scrubbing Mitchell's records with the organisation, according to the gaming site Kotaku.

Irish Beef To Be Allowed Back Into China
In 2016, China became the world's second-largest beef importer behind the U.S. , importing 800,000 metric tons worth $2.6 billion. It has been three years since China formally lifted a ban on Irish beef exports imposed after the BSE crisis.

"We also recognise records for First flawless score on Pac-Man and Highest score on Pac-Man". So it seems likely that TG will appreciate and take into consideration any proof that Mitchell may have that shows its investigation was in error.

A formal dispute was filed in February against Mitchell's high score.

While Twin Galaxies has not yet commented on Mitchell's statement, management and staff of the registry have many times stated that the integrity of the leaderboards is their biggest concern.

Syrians rally in Damascus in support of Assad's military
Peskov said only that Russian Federation was against "groundless" accusations about who was responsible for the attack. The Western trio swiftly reverted to diplomatic efforts, with leaders facing flak at home over the punitive attack.

"We now believe that they are not from an original unmodified" Donkey Kong machine, Twin Galaxies said in their statement. In 1999, he was the first gamer to notch a flawless score on Pac-Man. The 1,047,200 score from the documentary "King of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters" was also voided.

In addition, Steve Wiebe, who featured in King of Kong alongside Mitchell as the protagonist of the documentary (for lack of a better term), has also also spoken out in light of the controversy. In it, he said due diligence is being done on an investigation in "a professional manner, not in a shock-jock mentality designed to create hits". "We will show that everything was done professionally, according to the rules, according to the scoreboard".

Haley made clear the United States won't be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying USA involvement there "is not done". McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff, said, "I think the words crippled and degraded are good words".
