Mortal Kombat Forum  /  Beat Very Hard w/o Spamming? SNES
  TenkaTenka

I don't see how adding any other difficulties is going to help towards "reducing" spam.

I am willing to create a category within "Category Extensions" which will ban the use of excessive "Turtle Kicks" though, if that will interest you. It's something we've already talked about to an extent internally already.

Sorry, but keeping things as a single difficulty keeps everyone competing on the same level without fragmenting the leaderboard. "Hardest-only" works perfectly for the classic MK's and like I said, adding "weaker" difficulties isnt going to "reduce" spam, it's going to increase it lol.

I don't know how your logic is supposed to work here .. if the game is on an easier difficulty then easier strategies are going to viable. If the hardest strategy is already very easy then there is no point in adding easier difficulties.

I just checked your forum post history. You've been harassing leaderboards to add Extra Difficulties for years and you have not submitted a single speedrun to this website. So I highly doubt you would submit anything regardless.

Please stop bothering leaderboards with your nonsense unless you are actually going to commit to being a part of their community and/or speedrun their games.

No. Either you're here to run and your opinion means something.. or you're here to jerk us around and your opinion means nothing.

If you want your opinion to be heard... post from the account you are running from. Creating an alt to troll a board is even worse than someone doing it unknowingly lol.

Did you seriously think that would help your case? What you are admitting to could even be considered a bannable offense depending on the circumstances.

Ok. If you were legitimately here with the intention of speedrunning this game and were requesting a category that you wished to speedrun then I formally apologize.

And let me make some constructive suggestions for you. If you wish to be seen as sincere in your efforts to become a part of a speedrun community, don't post from an account which has a years worth of history of you requesting leaderboard changes but having 0 speedruns on your account. This does not look good, not in the slightest. Maybe you are indeed not a troll, but there are in fact plenty of them out there doing exactly what it looks like you are doing, so in my defense that's how I came to that conclusion.

Furthermore, you began this thread not just by "asking for support of lesser difficulties" but by stating "can anyone actually beat Mortal Kombat I without spamming?". This statement implies some kind of lack of skill on behalf of the runners. I'm not sure how else to percieve this statement, it is insulting .. so I would suggest in future being more mindful of your approach.

But just so you know, yes we can .. all of us can .. it just so happens that the fastest strategy involves spamming. This is speedrunning, the fastest strategy wins out, as it should.

We COULD create a more interesting category which banned the use of said optimal "spam strategy", which is what I initially offered and you dismissed. So if your concern was to have a more interesting run which did not require spamming, you could have had it, but you refused it.

And finally, you requested that an easier difficulty be added which would somehow allow you to not spam as much? This I am still baffled by and you still have not elaborated on. As I said before, if you make the game easier then even simpler and more spammy strategies just become optimal. What you were stating and what you were asking doesn't make any sense. Maybe if you could be more clearer in explaining your reasoning in the future, it would be much more helpful.

Basically, the fact that your suggestion did not appear to have any cohesive logic behind it, coupled with the fact that your account appeared to be approaching leaderboards at random and telling them to add categories without actually providing any speedruns to follow them up. This is what lead me to believe that you were trolling us.

If I'm wrong on that assessment then I apologize, but could you also tell me where I went wrong in my assessment? Because thats what all of the information I have points to in this case, and you haven't given me any kind of evidence to make me believe otherwise.
