NieR: Automata Forum  /  Automata Leaderboard

Nier Automata's leaderboards should now be setup for the basics for those who have been running the game the past week you can submit your runs to the corresponding difficulty category. If you have suggestions please let me know, Some of you guys and gals have been putting more time into practice then I have so you may have more insight I may not have found out myself or from others.

Looking forward to getting my blackbox around March for the release of the full game, I hope everyone that has not played the previous title and has a ps3 or 360 maybe gets around to playing it. ❤️

Let's have a Happy NieR YeaR!

Will add a no oobs category if we feel its necessary as a misc, I feel allot of people will be using the height gain tricks and the skips that boarder the oobs. The only hard skip I have not managed to get myself is the bridge skip which saves several minutes from what I've seen.

For the purpose of the demo it would not be worth it to do it like that as subcategories for that game were based mainly on the difficulty because of the Endings being a main decider for the routes. The full game when it comes out will most likely follow the original Nier's layout for the categories.

The picture is the official one from the Enix site wallpapers and its fine.
If that's the case stop looking at porn and maybe not play the game if you have issues differentiating.
The Categories are label as such by design choice and really does not matter as long as they are there to sort the boards.
I will change them to better suit Taro and the game instead.
% well now that remains a secret.

There was an update to the requirements for run submissions to include the difficulty selection in the vod as of earlier today. And the rules were more clearly rewritten also please be aware that when you get to the mission briefing screen wait about 10-15 seconds before you start the run to allow the background loading to finish to prevent extra time being added to your runs from loading the first cutscene.

Have fun speedrunning.

imo still feels like percents are kind of unnecessary, but good job on setting the board up otherwise 🙂

The % thing is just there pay it no mind as it does nothing it's all inside our heads. Hope to see runs from you and others that are also interested in the game.

In recent talk over on the Discord chat, some people brought up some small talk about having the timer shown or not.
Considering how short the game is for the demo having the timer shown is not an issue if you can do it then it helps out allot with giving myself and others reference points during the run and a better assurance of the timing accuracy. I will continue to time runs regardless if they have a timer with the vod or not as it helps with the Accuracy of the runs time. The full game tho will most likely require the timer be shown for the purpose of reference points during the run being more important. The alternative for those who cannot show a timer will be required to submit their split times for that run with the break down to help with the referencing. We will get to more of those specifics for the full game when the time comes.

Anyways have fun Running the demo looking forward to more runs and improvements.

I added the BFO / Bare Fists Only category under misc it will focus on the hardest difficulty for the challenge purposes the rules should be pretty clear if not let me know if you have questions.

Full Game board will most likely go up around of just after NA March 7th release date for those that may be asking.
If for some reason we have ppl already looking to do runs early on the JPN release, I can see about it going up before that but I would require them to send me the run video so I can use that to set up the board.

Anyways very excited.

So instead of creating a new board, I'm slowing getting it converting over to the full board and keeping the demo with it as a misc category as it will be the best option for keeping things simple and in one place as the demo will lose activity and not have a dead board for that reason. During this transition the board may look odd at times but please be mindful of this.

The Board conversion to Full game is ready and should have all the demo runs still intact as it was a slow manually process.

Full game categories will not be set up till after the release of the game for NA and EU once I have time to look into how the runs will play out with help from the other runners so If you not seeing them that is why so please do not try to do actual runs yet till we have them established. If you'd like to join in on the discuss for that which will be had soon after march 7th please join the NieR discord and the discussions in the Speedruns section.

Reminder that the categories will start going up on the Tuesday following NA release I will make another post regarding this shortly after.

I have been looking at some individuals to add as new moderators to help verify run as we move forward,
Also because I do not currently have what I feel is enough knowledge of the actual working game Since I've only recently got my hands on play the full game. So after some though and asking some runners I think Dworim is a great fit to help keep runs handled when I'm not able to and Vise-versa.

Looking forward to seeing the start of some Any% runs soon and more discussion on the boards categories etc.

@MASH,

I would like to volunteer / request to moderate this page if you need any new moderators.
I am extremely excited about Speedrunning this game too when it drops in 2 weeks here for PC and I would like to actively join in on the discussion for the board.
I currently moderate the Dark Souls III and UT3 LB so I have plenty of Leaderboard experience if required.

Thanks for reading this in advance.

@Dark_

We currently do not need additional Moderators at this time,
I have already selected a current member as mentioned that was nominated by our other runners when I asked about this.
I appreciate the thought but I think it will be best to have knowledgeable and known people moderate our boards to verify runs.
I can handle organization of the boards fine enough on my own, its just verifying runs for the future that may require more people that wish to do so.
If you are interested in joining the community we have a home on this discord: https://discord.gg/EtGWDuW
We are always looking for more people interested in the game even if they are not speedrunning it as it's mainly a hub for us to connect with people who like the game and the others of the series's.

No worries. I thought you needed more moderators (as in 'multiple'). So I just volunteered 😛
But I'll join the Discord and just join in the discussion then 🙂

All good. Hope to see you running when the time comes,
probably have most of the hard stuff figured out by then lol.
