Hello, I've been attempting to learn this game, with varying degrees of success.

I would follow either 1st or 2nd place's run through a stage, and only sometimes they work. I'm aware of RNG, but Vykan mentions set RNG patterns and such. Sometimes I'll navigate a chapter, and be able to pull a consistent route through the level, but it gets Marth Killed. Another situation was going through the route, realizing Marth being weaker than he should in Prologue 4, and restarting the learning process to then have Marth properly leveled, but I followed all the map placements correctly, and I got different results?

I just feel like I'm missing something, and wanted to ask if there was an already written route/notes/info on handling the run, so that the learning process is not a shot in the dark.

I did some looking around and various forums mention something about things like the internal clock, being a factor in the RNG you get from the runs, but I'm not sure how any of that works or ties into the run or anything like that, and want to atleast ask if someone can point me in the correct direction.

Thanks in advance, and if there's like an FE speedrunning discord or something where I should be asking these kind of questions instead, I would not mind joining that.
