Thread: 100% question

Started by: ElimsElims

I assume this is the source that stated Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi to be coming soon with 70 moons each. The poster of this stated its falsehood later. Also, that's not a question, @Sparticusink.

Thread: Can There be a Emulator catagory?

Started by: BGPBGP

Actually, TicTacBean's opinion on whether emulator should be accepted/have its own category is, in fact, an opinion. On top of that, emulator's acceptance (or lack thereof) is not "an unchanging fact". Although it doesn't appear to be changing any time soon, it theoretically could.

Thread: Improving routing with informatics

Started by: LeRemiiiLeRemiii

Of course, some moon combos are outrageous and don't even need to be timed. No route would have you do Knucklotec's fight and then do the Harriet fight, to use an example in Sand. Also, is that 89 moons accounting for two multimoons or not?

Thread: Tips For Moon Skip

Started by: Braixtomp654Braixtomp654

Is it not helpful to others? Moon skip is tricky for beginners at speedrunning Odyssey, so such a thread can help them in the future.

Perhaps he has been convinced. I understand open-mindedness is not an option to you, @Jarhead_71, but it seems that TicTacBean has changed his mind.

Or there could be subcats for 1.0.0 and later versions.

Thread: Softlock%

Started by: [Deleted user]

I did a run in 4:16
I think this should be added to the leaderboard as many other category extensions have a softlock category and as this is a short category with a clear end goal. The only difficultly here with the rules is when to end timing. I personally think it should be when Mario stops walking. If a different early softlock is discovered, we can edit the rules accordingly.

Thread: Help! Not enough coins to buy moons

After thinking about it, I realized that a better snow route without shop moon would also cut out the secret in the Rango room and get two of the moons in the upper right room.

For me, I began getting fewer and fewer deaths pretty quickly, sticking mostly to more comfortable strategies for the most part. I don't have official times for these moons, but to switch out the Wooded Kingdom shop moon, I might use the room with the fire bro (it's used in 2p) and place it right before the underwater pipe room moons. For Snow, I would probably do the shards moon in the upper right room.

Doing seaside before snow is roughly the same speed, so that can allow you to grab the necessary coins to buy the moon in snow. Other than that, my only suggestion would be to practice a lot so that you don't die much, thus allowing you to keep those coins.

What I would wonder is why these runs were verified even though they didn't follow the rules exactly.

Thread: Is Sub 1 Hour possible?

I do believe that there are ways to hover bros in Bruncheon, specifically a theorized TAS-only strategy that would bring two bros up the volcano. Of course, we don't know a ) if the moon is there and b ) if it would spawn the Odyssey, softlock, or something else. There are also problems because the game might look for moons from, per se, Metro, and find nothing. This could also lead to crashes, locks, etc.

Theo% has the clear capacity to be competitive. This certainly lacks that competition, as most times will be very similar and the category only has three seconds of movement. Simply looking at the amount of runs certainly will not show precisely how competitive a category can probably be. On top of that, there are more runs for Theo% than merely Coin's, such as the OG runner, Theo himself. What's more, neither the mere amount or runs nor the competition level isn't all that determines how good a category is. For instance, take Minimum Captures and Jumpless. Both are mostly equal in how good of a category they are, but Minimum Captures has more runs. Does this mean Jumpless is worse? Absolutely not! One of the largest factors in the quality of a category is how arbitrary it is. Neither of those are rather arbitrary for sure. At this point, you are probably wondering, "But isn't Theo% too arbitrary of a category to be put in SMOCE?" The answer is that it isn't, as there is a clear grounding for the meme: supreme clickbait artist Theo. Sure, Death% may seem like the antithesis of arbitrariness, and it can definitely be seen as such, but the category is bad almost all across the board. I hope this message has ceased the flow of complaints about Theo%.

Theo% is a good, competitive meme. This...isn't.

Yes, i know the five runs weren't posted, but i have a question for you. Do the mods not have the final say?

You seem to forget that a large portion of the SMO Speedrunning Discord community is head over heels for Bruncheon, so Chef% is something many like. This is why is has received such support.
