Okay, I concede that your Scramball score is good. This is only my 2nd fault-free (had one fail on the last spike for 15.15k :( ).

I sent a customer with 30 seconds left in a klash, then waited for the time to run out before finishing my day (to test this “10 minute waiting period” out). Right after the 10 minute waiting timer started, I finished my day and was told that the customer was late to the klash.

So… what is the point of this 10 minute window?

I would propose that since 5 minutes = 3k points, so 0 time and no deaths = 16900, then we can either convert Scramball to time:
300 – (min(Scram_score-13900,0))/10 = time in seconds
or convert vertigo time into Scramball score
(300 – min(Vert_time,300))*10+13900 = Score

edit: Changed base score to 13900 to account for the 1900 for the levels.

I’ll pick …

Scramball

Going for highest score.
-100 per death.
Easy straight forward game.
No save file necessary :)

What is the tiebreaker since yours doesn’t have a time (if we both win our own game)? Similarly to not picking a game and getting stuck with the default as your choice, it’s actually less advantageous to just have “forfeit the tiebreaker” with two games vs. just playing the one game your opponent chooses.

If you want to change your game to one with the 5 minute speedrun, I’m okay with you having task-selection extension of a day, and I’ll try to get you a save file for V:GL.

Here’s most of the strat

On level 1, you can actually return the egg and not die (I didn’t know that when I did this run), and get 4 in the level.
More edits to the strat to come.

wait what where is the logic

So I agree that this is kind of silly (though I suppose it’s a punishment for not picking something or saying something). But Ruro would be better off in this case ALSO choosing ZM (like when eProd chose Hex 3 and I chose that as well), because then it’s just win 1 game and be done. Now Ruro has to win both ZM and Edgey, so there’s no benefit to Ruro for Edgey being available (which is true for all who didn’t pick a game).

I posted complete vids of all my times in the last game well before deadline, and it was what my opponent picked. :p

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

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).
