I use these notes for my runs, and originally made these for just myself, so excuse the occasional casual/jokey language. These are based off Obdajr and Edge's current PBs.


  • TX = Turn [Number] <-- Note: TX's will not count the turns where you can perform no actions at all. So for example, turns where all four characters Default.
