Mortal Kombat Shaolin Monks Forum  /  Hard Mode Runs
  ElfinoutElfinout

I know older titles are usually ran on hardest difficulty as tradition to an extent. Since the leaderboards are being worked on, I figured I'd toss in a conversation about Hard Mode in Shaolin Monks.

From my limited experience (I did about an hour of testing on the onis and mini boss in Goro's Lair) hard mode increases damage recieved by about 33%-ish. I don't see much change in the amount of health enemies have or their battle behavior. I think it's a semi-significant enough reason to talk about if runs should be easy mode/hard mode only or if there needs to be a split.

I honestly don't have a particular outcome in mind, but I was wondering what the community had in mind. I'm am also attempting to prepare this game for a GDQ submission so I thought we could iron out a couple of kinks like this. Thank you all for reading and I am excited to see what y'all say.

If anyone knows more about it in depth, I would love to hear more on it. I don't think it's a massive change, but if more people start running the game they may wonder why Hard Mode isn't ran.

I have some Hard Mode runs in my Twitch backlog that are ready to go.

I'm cool with it being it's own category or just adding it as an additional variable and listing it together with the Medium difficulty runs.

in my humble opinion, it would be nice if there is another difficulty section😁

agree, it would be nice to have a category for speedruns in hard mode

I support any and all ideas that further increase the possibilities for new SpeedRuns

eai will it work to create categories with the hard difficulty?

Yeah, we just need to create a new subcategory. Sucks cause we just removed one. Lol. Probably have to move all the runs too.
