Why is this round being ended on a major holiday?

1. It’s only a major holiday in one country of over 100.
2. It’s been on that date for over a week, so why are you asking that now?
3. Because that’s how the timing worked out?

I just noticed: I might have to add a rule to Jelly Escape, that you have to reset your save on round start (for obvious reasons). But since the round has already been going for a while, that’s going to be added only on the next one.

This is why I said that I wanted vid of Prec getting any of the times I listed (as those were his previous times). He actually didn’t improve 3 or 4 of them (already low times) but since that match was nowhere close the times didn’t seem important.

So ignore the 0 I got for level 5, it was just a glitch when I restarted right as I got to the goal…

Here’s 9 on Act 5 (my actual score).
Nice job to you or Darkboy, whoever actually succeeded in shortcutting Act 5 (I had given up on it too :/ ). Now do Act 8. :p

Ok then, let’s try level 7.

Actually, I meant “all levels” as in all of them (total time). 1 level with whole seconds seems like a bad idea leading to likely ties. If we’re only doing level 7, we should do Super Stacker also. :p

Vex 3 total time with whole API-stat seconds or using 2 decimal places as in game? Can I just choose that game too so we only have to play 1 game? If not, I’ll pick super stacker again.

I’ll let you decide the conditions and which levels.

Fastest person to score 200,000,000 points
General strategy is obviously to get 200M points as quickly s possible and then suicide by dropping off the bottom of the screen.

This is a brilliant idea… Now I have to go find a game I’m good at it with this kind of strategy.

My understanding is that Dark beat Best in lint, Best beat Dark in Particles, and because Best didn’t pick a game, tie went to Dark.

Can I use the same game every round? Can I use games that other people used? Can I use different variants (harder difficulties/different level sets) of games that have been used?

New Total = 291.99.

I had no problem reading for the deadline and finding it on the spreadsheet (though perhaps posting it directly in the thread might have helped, but if Lou didn’t find the mention of it being in the spreadsheet, I don’t see how that would have helped).

Mousekeys (spamming 0, 5, and left-click on the mouse) (I see now Shawn already said that, but yeah)

For a strategy, do this, and don’t be so cautious on levels 4 and 12.

ham, the point of the 300 was that it is 5 minutes (and so that is the max score in a “5-minute speedrun” for particles).

But since neither of you picked a game, it makes sense for Lebossle to just remove the cap for you 3 groupings (as he did).

I’d like to request video for any times that are identical to the following:
61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70
14.7 12.68 6.04 7.1 9.92 16.52 11.18 11.08 7.82 16.39

71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80
27.53 4.64 6.16 25.83 8.73 74.75 5.82 8.24 7.95 5.08
I assume you plan on beating all of those, in which case no videos would be necessary. Now I have to go unlock those levels for myself…

Wait, so is round 1 everyone, or just Shawn/Lou/Best/Darkboy? I assumed the latter.

2000 modules gets you a divine leaf; that used to be 5k, but EB changed it back since their upgrades only recognize when you are logged in while they complete. The prior 2k reward (shadow essence) was moved to 1.5k. There is now no 5k furniture reward.

I have concerns with that “Whenever you give an opponent a task, tell him your complete strategy with it (this is to prevent unfair games, like puzzle games that only you know how to solve)” stipulation. Should I just wait until there’s a few minutes left to post and say “here’s my strat that I just finalized/perfected”?

I’m sorry I haven’t read the whole thread, I’ll just ask : has anyone made a chart of items’ “war points” yet? Thank you

War points are simply sqrt(item_value).

Personally I think a league system would suit this game the most, with promotion and relegation between leagues. It would also solve both the match up and replaying the same cities issues by completely removing that problem, as each city would play each other city a fixed amount of times. The top league can be shown in the leaderboards, and will contain all the most hardcore cities, so they don’t have to terrorise the lower leagues.

This would also sort the current problem. Round Robin tournaments for every league, with the promotion and relegation as you mention, would be great as well.

Thanks Leggite :)

Here’s a couple of pics here to help explain what I think would work well:

The tiers of the League system, with cities moving up and down from each tier.

Here’s how the promotion and relegation would work, with the top 3 cities moving up into a higher league, and the bottom 6 cities moving into the lower leagues (3 into each league directly below)

Each city will play each other city once during each tormement (24 battles at 25 hours each, like currently).
Winning the battle gives 3 points for the league positioning, draw gives 1 (if it ever happens) and a lose is 0 points. At the end of the season the cities are promoted and relegated according to their finished positions. Along with rewards of some kind, probably more in higher leagues, and more reward for coming higher in each league.

Leaderboards should have a page showing the top 10 cities in League 1, and beside it the top 10 cities in your current league.

Obviously this can be tweaked, with better names for each league! But this is the bare bones of the idea :)

What happens in a round robin tournament when cities drop out, or new cities join PvP? While I get the idea, and it works well for some situations, it seems unnecessary here. All that would do even if it played out is take two tournaments to sort the same top X cities into League 1, and they would occasionally drop out and be replaced as their inactivity lulled. That will happen naturally with the system that has been set up. It’s just still in the sorting phase.

And as for Leggite’s problem… if you really want to start playing different towns you can always lose the next 6-8 wars so that all the other towns pass you and you aren’t clearly on top any more. Otherwise, you will just be a the top and occasionally new challengers that pass the 2nd-4th top towns will find you, but otherwise you’ve limited your own playing pool by your stacked town. I’m not sure what you hope to gain by having different city matchups – an even easier time than you already have?
