Thread: regarding console resets

Started by: 8BitisGr88BitisGr8

I suppose there's no harm of making this run more accessible by making it easier to reset as long as we know for a fact that nothing is changed, and that the run starts at 0 lives. My disagreement was partially because of principal as well (although I didn't state it that way lol) but I'm willing to support the majority on this decision.

I actually disagree. Even though I also run the game on console, I believe that runs should be done on a fresh file with no progress to help prevent cheating and other confusions that could arise.

It would also be cool if PS4 was added to the leaderboards :3

Thread: Surprise Speedruns Invasion

Started by: ViolinViolin

Hey there! I just want to let all of the moderators and anyone who it may concern know that you will be seeing an unusual increase in run submissions very soon! This is because of the new monthly speedrunning competition, Surprise Speedruns, where players are challenged to learn a randomly-selected game every month and then participate in a $100 race at the end of the month. In March, our main speedrun will be Treasure Planet Any%!

Unfortunately anyone with a leaderboard submission or anyone who has speedran the game before the creation of this thread is not able to participate in the competition because you wouldn't be learning the game from scratch, but we would really appreciate it if you considered joining the Surprise Speedruns Discord server if you are interested in helping our runners learn the game! We will even give you a special role in the server so people know who they can talk to! When you join, make sure to ping me (@Violin) and let me know you're from the Treasure Planet community! https:/​/​discord.​gg/​hSbcFJ7

Thank you for taking your time to read this, and I look forward to seeing how far the competition will go!

FAQ

Q: What is Surprise Speedruns?

A: Surprise Speedruns is a monthly speedrunning competition where all participants are required to learn the same randomly-selected game from scratch.

Q: Is there any prize money involved?

A: Yes, the top three winners of each monthly race will be qualified for the $100 prize pool. 1st Place gets $60, 2nd gets $30, and 3rd gets $10.

Q: How do Championship Points work?

A: You earn 1 Championship Point just for qualifying for the monthly race. This means you have proven that you have learned a game from scratch by having a verified leaderboard submission to speedrun.com on a date after the month's game was announced. A majority of the Championships earned will be during the monthly races, which are based on how well you perform as well as how many participants are in the race. The top three people with the most Championship Points at the end of the year will earn physical trophies as well as an additional cash prize bonus.

Q: How do I join the competition?

A: You can join the competition for free by joining our Discord server: https:/​/​discord.​gg/​hSbcFJ7

Q: Where does the prize money come from?

A: Currently, I am self-funding this competition, but there are plans to set up crowdfunding in the future to increase the prize pool.

Thread: Surprise Speedruns Infiltration

Started by: ViolinViolin

Hey there! I'm Violin and I am running a monthly community event called Surprise Speedruns, where everyone is challenged to run a specific game that is randomly pulled from speedrun.com/randomgame and the players compete for a $100 prize pool at the end of the month! I wanted to let you know that M&M's: Shell Shocked was randomly selected for January and you can expect many new submissions between now and then! Unfortunately none of the runners who have submitted before today will qualify for the prize pool (as it would be unfair to everyone learning the game as of today), but if anyone from the Shell Shocked community would like to help new people out, or compete in future games, feel free to join our Discord server and introduce yourselves! https:/​/​discord.​gg/​Vh53dy6

Thread: Announcing the first OFFICIAL Surprise Speedrun!

Started by: ViolinViolin

A few months ago, I announced a new community event called Surprise Speedruns, where every month we challenge the community to speedrun a specific game that is randomly pulled from speedrun.com/randomgame. On the last day of each month, a race for a $100 minimum prize pool is held, and the top three players win a cut of that prize pool. I am happy to announce that the first Surprise Speedrun race will be held on Januray 31st, 2020 at 2PM PT/5PM ET/10PM/UTC! The game that will be ran is M&M's: Shell Shocked https:/​/​www.​speedrun.​com/​mmss ! If you would like to participate in these monthly competitions, please join the Surprise Speedruns Discord Server! I look forward to seeing new faces and making new friends in the speedrunning scene! https:/​/​discord.​gg/​Vh53dy6

Thread: Introducing: Surprise Speedruns!

Started by: ViolinViolin

Itching to learn a new speedgame? Or maybe you're new to speedrunning? In any case, Surprise Speedruns is for you! Each month a random speed game will be chosen from speedrun.com/randomgame, and every Sunday the community will come together for races and competition. During the last Sunday of each month, there will be one big race with all of the participants, where a monetary prize will be provided to the first, second and third place winners. The prize pool will be determined by how much growth Surprise Speedrun gets, but will start off with $100 in total prizes.

    Surprise Speedruns will officially kick off in January 2020, but if you would like to test this before then, please feel free to join the Surprise Speedruns Discord server!

Thread: Moderation Elections Feedback

Started by: DrazerkDrazerk

Zan and I were talking about the mod requirements a few days ago, but what we agreed on is that instead of having to be top 33% in the most popular category, the person should be top 33% in a category with 10 or more people (and also has to have ran two other non-artbitrary categories). Not all popular categories are fun to play, and there are definitely runners who in my eyes who qualify to be a mod, such as Zan for DDD, but because they don't run the category with the most runners they get shafted? I don't think that's fair. If they are skilled in a category with a good amount of runners, that should be good enough imo, it shouldn't have to be in the most popular category.

Thread: DDD Merged Leaderboards

Started by: ViolinViolin

Yeah if we removed the 3DS logo I think it would definitely be an improvement. I think changing the title from "Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance" to "Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance" would also help, since the 3D part only applies to the 3DS version. Maybe I'm just nitpicking but feel free to do whatever.

Thread: DDD Merged Leaderboards

Started by: ViolinViolin

Hi, just want to say that I do not agree with merging leaderboards for DDD for 3DS and DDD for PS4, as there are so many differences. It also doesn't make sense to me that a game mostly run on PS4 would be represented by the 3DS box art and the Kingdom Hearts 3D title. I think there should be a community poll on this because I cannot be the only one who disagrees with this merge.

Thread: 100% Categories

Started by: ViolinViolin

Hi, this is a request for "100% - 1 Controller" and "100% - 2 Controllers" to be added as categories. 100% is attained by getting a crown on every single stage in every single mode in the Stage Select screen. With 1 controller the run is longer because you have to play through all of the stages in every mode to unlock the ability to control both characters in coop, which is the only way to finish every coop stage in Cool mode, since the CPU is so bad that it doesn't let you get into Cool mode in stage 3 through 7 (stage 2 is fine). With 2 controllers you only have to play through the coop stages once with Rammy and once with PaRappa.

I'd like to add a marathon named "Cold Ones, Inc.

The purpose for the marathon is to speedrun games for fun to spread the awesomeness of the speedrun community as well as to benefit children in need. The moderators of the tournament will be Dep_Cow, FaizingMousy and myself.
