Thread: New rule in response to latest potential WR submission

Started by: ThatRaisinThoThatRaisinTho

A new World Record in the 1st Place category was just submitted recently by Dylan8404, a time of 5:27.680 (in reality it was a few seconds less even, because he stopped the timer late, but I won't bother to fix the time in this case). That time is obviously a major jump from any time achieved previously, and it's because as shown here

in his run, the game ended without all of the games being played, because everyone left besides 3 people.

Dylan obviously didn't do anything wrong, it's not like he cheated. But because of the unfairness of this, I'm going to have to reject the run and add a new rule saying that for the 1st Place and Finish categories, you have to completely play through all 8 games.

The reason this is an issue, and the reason I have to do this is probably obvious, but I'll give a short explanation anyways. If we allowed runs that ended early, it completely takes away the skill of actually being good at the game and makes it entirely reliant on nothing but how quickly the people in your game leave. There could also potentially be a problem in the future where people get a party in the game and have all but 3 leave as soon as it started, finishing with ridiculous times like 1 second, and of course we can't have that, as it goes completely against the point of the game.

The "Place In All Minigames" and "X Stars" categories will remain unchanged by this rule, because if a game were to end early in those categories, it wouldn't cause any real issues.

I had thought of the possibility that this could happen before, but I never made a rule about it because I just thought it would never happen. Kinda lazy on my part, and I'm sorry about that, but at least we've got it figured out moving forward, and that's probably the last new rule we will ever need to add to this game.

Thread: Can we add a perfect game cetegory

Started by: KenjiioKenjiio

As fun as it is to try to get a perfect game, I don't believe it makes for much of a good speedrun category. It's more of a fun casual challenge than anything. The reason I don't like it as a speedrun category is because a lot of the strategy in speedruns of this game involve sometimes purposely losing faster to make games end quicker, and stuff along those lines. If you made it necessary to win each and every game, you'd be relying even MORE on how good the other people in your game are than usual.

There's also already categories for getting to, for example, certain amounts of stars as fast as possible, where getting perfect games would basically be your ideal goal for the most part anyways.

Thread: co op?

Started by: mmorttmmortt

I could make something like that, I'm also thinking of coming back to this map and doing at least one run of each category. Which category would you want to do Co Op, just Any%? Also, the rules state that you have to play on the newest version anyways.

Thread: Explanation for Place in All Minigames Category

Started by: ThatRaisinThoThatRaisinTho

Posting this for clarification because there seems to have been some confusion.

For the Place in All Minigames Category, you can't just play the game one time, and place in each minigame during that one playthrough. The category requires that you place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in EVERY POSSIBLE minigame. That means you will have to play the game over and over until every game shows up, and you're able to place at least third in each one.
You basically start out with a list of every minigame, and can cross each one off as you place in it.

Hope this clears things up. Feel free to ask questions.

@yarnyarn many, many people know about this already, but it's clearly not allowed on leaderboards. Your friend was not the first one to do it either.

Thread: Update: Leaderboards working again

Started by: ThatRaisinThoThatRaisinTho

As you may know by now, Hypixel combined Party Games 1, 2, and 3 in to just party games, which changes everything for us.

As you may also know, the former moderator was not willing to change the leaderboard for months, so I eventually requested mod on the site forums, and finally got the leaderboards updated.

From now on, things will be kept up with as well as possible. Feel free to bring up any concerns with me on the forums here.

Changes:
Removed all old categories as they are no longer valid.
Made separate categories for winning and finishing, as sometimes losing mini games is better for you than trying to win them and this could make the finishing speed run time faster.
Changed the old 100% to Place in All Minigames.
Made miscellaneous categories for getting certain amounts of stars.

Thread: Request leaderboard moderation

Started by: DaravaeDaravae

Hey I have a game https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​hypixel_pg Hypixel Party Games, where the one moderator is no longer active. What happened on the server is that there is no longer separate versions of Party Games (1, 2, and 3) but they have now been combined into one for good, and he has not changed the categories to show this. As you may see in the forums, I have asked him multiple times to change the rules, or even just let me change the rules if he doesn't want to, but he hasn't done it even though months ago, he said he would. In more recent weeks, when I've asked, there has been no response at all.

I'd like to note that I don't have any runs pending but that is explicitly because, as stated before, the categories currently shown on the leaderboard aren't even valid anymore because the whole thing changed. I want to do a run, and I will as soon as I can, but I don't really have much of a reason to until I see the leaderboards are usable.

Thanks for your time 🙂

Maybe in this thread we can keep track of secrets we figure out how to do as we find them? For Man Overboard, you push a villager in that one Parkour stage on the ship in to the water. That's the only one I've found so far that isn't 100% straightforward.

Also, is there a way to use the code or command blocks to figure each one out?

Could someone post a list of all the secret advancements so people can know how to do them for 100%? I'm interested in running 100% but can't bc I highly doubt I've done all the secrets at this point.

Thread: Basketball and hockey

Started by: ThatRaisinThoThatRaisinTho

@LapisBlood no, shots don't take any time unless they're made. Goals do take extra time, shots do not unless they use an item in that shot. It's obvious that all you would want to do is make one goal and then stall, everyone can think of that as the obvious strat within just a few seconds of thinking.

In basketball, the amount of time that you have the ball doesn't make a difference but yes, you do need to keep shooting so you don't get a shot clock violation

If anyone cares, heres a list of all the known ways that you can gain/lose time in Hockey and Basketball (this is only helpful for Any%, Sports Mix and 100% though nobody will ever do 100% so basically only Any% and Sports Mix)

Hockey:
Cutscenes that only SOMETIMES play when goalies make a save pause the timer for about 1 - 1.5 seconds, so obv they lose 1-1.5 seconds
Scoring with coins makes the cutscene for scoring a bit longer, by maybe a second or 2
Using an item shot pauses the timer for about half a second - 1 second
Shooting the puck as time expires will cause the game not to end until it stops, or gets blocked or picked up again.
Getting scored on wastes probably around 10 seconds or so (haven't played the game in a while so my estimate may be way off for that)
Grabbing the puck off the face off quickly will start the timer as soon as you grab it

Basketball:
Tip offs actually do NOT affect your time
Scoring with coins makes the cutscene for scoring a bit longer, by maybe a second or 2
Using an item shot pauses the timer for about half a second - 1 second
Shooting the ball as time expires will cause the game not to end until it misses, or gets blocked or picked up for an alley-oop by a teammate.
getting a shot clock violation loses probably around 6 or 7 seconds (haven't played the game in a while so my estimate may be way off for that)
Making the ball go out of bounds (I think the only court this can happen on is DK Docks) loses a similar amount of time to a shot clock violation

My point is, there ARE some in game ways to save time besides the obvious "only score once and don't get scored on" thing. But other than that, these would just be really optimized and hard to improve on, and that's why the mods probably don't want them to be a thing. I think there would be variation on the leaderboards if this got popular but 1) this wouldn't get popular and 2) most people would be within 10 seconds or something of each other.

I’m not sure what you’re going for here. There isn’t anything special you can do. Just play the game with normal strategy, but do it fast. There is no special “idea”

It’s not the first frame tho, I’ve done this many times and there’s no way it’s always been in the first frame. I dont think it even is in the video either. It’s just odd. The only thing you could use it for is if you were doing some arbitrary speedrun of getting 1000 coins or something, or maybe in bingo if there was a thing for getting a certain amount of coins or lives.

Web version. The part to skip ahead to is roughly at 7:00 in the video after I explain that I’m pausing. I found this by accident while practicing any% when I paused the game to respond to some Snapchat msgs. I have no clue why this happens, but it’s... something.
