Marathon Category Idea

Hey all, I'm thinking of adding a full game maraton category that would require you to take all three path types back to back, or maybe just upper and lower or something like that. If any of you have ideas for how this could work, please respond with your opinions. Thanks

Greece

We definetly need a Full Full category for this game. It should probably consist of 3 runs of you going for all 3 routes one after the other with no brakes. There are two ways we can time this either a ) just add the end game times of all 3 runs Or b ) use RTA and just remove the time between the resets at the end of each run. Im personally more favoured towards b but we can decide.

I was thinking of this too and I think the pros for in game time would be that it would allow you to take breaks in between levels and also if you had a slow connection it wouldn't really matter. The pros to RTA though are that you wouldn't need to do any math for adding the separate times but you wouldn't be able to take breaks in between levels. If anybody else has any ideas please respond to this so we can decide.

Since this is going to be a "marathon" category of a maximum time of 10 mins I don't think taking brakes should even be allowed and im also saying that even if you do have a slow connection so it takes a bit for the game to restart after you finish each path we should remove the times in between the finish of the last level of one run and the first one fo the next one to remove the connection factor If we use rta.

So is anyone in favor of in game time? We will probably wait a few more days until deciding

Israel

Using in game time would make sense though since we use it for all the other categories

Greece

We use IGT in the other categories because it works in a marathon type category RTA would be better because of the multiple runs factor. Also the time between you selecting countries in this type of categorie is a nice addition....

Israel

So since nobody else seems to have an opinion on this, which one would you prefer?

Greece

I personaly prefer rta and doing the category the way i proposed the first time
