Thread: Submission Tutorial - Submitting a run? Start here!

Started by: JalBagelJalBagel

Hello everyone! We've had some questions and sloppy submissions recently to the leaderboards, so I've recorded a short video showing how you can make submissions!

The biggest takeaway from this video is really:
> Use "Time" for Any% runs
> Use "In-game Time" for IL runs

I hope this video clears some things up and doesn't create more confusion! Let me know if there are still any unanswered questions!

Thread: Slight adjustment to rules!

Started by: ElieaEliea

PS4 and XBox One have native recording. PS4 can record up to an hour. XBox One can record up to 10 min. Save that to a thumb drive and upload as normal. If anyone needs instructions on how to record with their console, a simple google search gets you to a lot of resources. You can even record the past 5 minutes on both platforms without having already started a recording (similar to Shadowplay) making saving PB/WR runs easier.

The real reason for the multiple videos for MP has been damage value verification and the fact we're making the recorder verify armor but not the other participants. Its obviously more of an issue on PC (because of the accessibility to mods), but has been observed in console runs too. At that point we can only say "it looks the other hunter is cheating" but we have no way to prove it. This makes the verification more consistent when we suspect there are issues.

As far as the complexity of the boards, if you have Iceborne (i.e. access to MR equipment and clutch claw), you submit runs to the IB boards. If you do not own Iceborne (no access to MR equipment or clutch claw), you submit to the "Base" MHW boards.

Thread: ANY% DLC TAG UPDATE: Guardian Armor and Early Weapon Upgrade Materials Pack

Started by: JalBagelJalBagel

You can still do the base content with the Iceborne expansion. You just have to submit it to the Iceborne leaderboards. For ILs, you have access to Master Rank armor and the clutch claw, a distinct advantage over Vanilla.

All the the same quests from Vanilla and the new optionals from Iceborne will be available to submit to on the Iceborne leaderboards. Does that make sense?

Thread: ANY% DLC TAG UPDATE: Guardian Armor and Early Weapon Upgrade Materials Pack

Started by: JalBagelJalBagel

If you play the game/do a run, IL or RTA, on Iceborne, then you submit to the Icenorne leaderboard. If you play on base/vanilla, then submit to the original board.

Vanilla does not get Clutch Claw, Master Rank equipment, and some other mechanics, so Vanilla and Iceborne have separate leaderboards for all run categories.

Edit: Didnt answer part of your question. The vanilla board will not become obselete since there may still be runners playing on vanilla, but a new patch category will be included, Iceborne 10.x (or somwthing like that), to denote the run was submitted on the Iceborne patch in Vanilla.

Thread: ANY% DLC TAG UPDATE: Guardian Armor and Early Weapon Upgrade Materials Pack

Started by: JalBagelJalBagel

With the addition of Iceborne we recieved the Guardian Armor and Early Weapon Upgrade Materials Pack as limited release redeemables to the game. These items are only available to redeem until October 3, 2019 ( http:/​/​www.​imgur.​com/​gallery/​qgzYjMQ ). Therefore, these items have been included in the DLC tag for all Any% categories.

The DLC rules will be updated to follow these changes.

Thread: Guardian Armor set

Started by: DarrkDuckyDarrkDucky

@DarrkDuckyDarrkDucky it does appear the Guardian Armor and Item Pack are only available until October 3rd. This would warrant a limited release and a DLC tag. I'll be making an official post shortly on the topic.

Thread: Guardian Armor set

Started by: DarrkDuckyDarrkDucky

The sets distributed are, for the most part, considered DLC as well, though we do not have an official ruling on it yet. As for the Guardian Armor, if it is limited release, then it will be considered DLC like the Origin Armor and Fairwind Charm. There's also an open discussion in the MHW Speedrun Discord (https://discordapp.com/invite/z8suWUX) if you would like to share your thoughts there as well.

Thread: Any% Multiplayer Ruleset Changes

Started by: JalBagelJalBagel

This post is to provide additional clarification on the Any% Multiplayer (2 through 4 player) categories.

The following change will appear on the Any% rules:
"Any% Multiplayer (2 - 4 players): Complete all Assigned Quests up to [Goal] with all participating players/hunters. All hunters must be present in the Assigned Quest when it is completed to be a valid mission."

This means all participating players must all be present in the assigned quest when completed. There is only one assigned quest this is not possible in: "Jagras of the Ancient Forest." Every quest following, including "Bird-brained Bandit," can be done multiplayer.

Note: This does not mean all member must be present when the assigned quest starts, only when it is finished. If a member is not present when the assigned quest is completed, then all members must re-attempt the assigned quest via the member who did not complete it or run is no longer valid.

Feel free to discuss these changes in the thread, including any new routing changes for Multiplayer.

Thread: CHANGES TO IL RUNS - Permitted Mods Change

Started by: JalBagelJalBagel

Recently, the use of Overlays in IL runs was questioned in the MH Speedrun Discord community. This discussion lead to a community opinion vote on the inclusion of Overlays as "permitted mods." The outcome of that poll can be seen here: http:/​/​imgur.​com/​gallery/​90E5pL5

The results showed a nearly 2:1 vote against the use of Overlay mods in IL runs. Between the poll results and feedback from community members in the community discord server, the use of Overlays is NOT PERMITTED. The Permitted Mods document has been updated to reflect this change, and can be viewed here: http:/​/​bit.​ly/​mhwpcmods

If you have further questions regarding the changes to IL runs, please reach out to a Mod or ask on the Discord (link in sidebar).
