Well you've done a lot so I think you've earned a break. I might do a recorded any% run real soon, not sure yet. There's still some missions I'm not entirely confident with

@MysticManiac This will be great also for us all to see the three consoles put aside =P Since you're using a xbox. We already have Gamecube and Ps2 on the board ^^

Don't worry about these stages you're not entirely confident. This game is a lot random. It is in fact the most inconsistent game I speed ran. I can assure you will never have 2 similar runs lol. It is ridiculous how random things get into theis game. Be in stages or in one on one fights. Sometimes see, I die to a hard opponent and I don't give up. And on the continue I manage to kill the very same difficult opponent in a matter of seconds. So that's what I think it's fun in this game. Even with 1 or 2 deaths, you still have a run because You never know how fast next fight will be, and RNG enemy movements and reactions on stages (they can or cannot defend punches and throwns a lot) etc etc etc It's so much randomness that it turns out to be fun. Even if you set some strategies, there will be a giant inconsistency.

Just tell it to knock off and break it as you can =P

I've uploaded a bunch of other videos of certain strats I've come up with. You can find them on my channel. Read the video descriptions for information on the strats

These strats include the ring out manipulations as well as strats for Paragon's missions

So I have some new strats for missions

This is an optional Imperfect mission but if you choose to do this one, this is a good strat for it. I've gotten good at playing as The Wink and can do this mission quite quickly but most other Imperfect missions are ones where you can ring out your opponents so this might not be worth doing.

This mission is only required in All Character Missions category but this is the best strat for this mission as Wolverine can't fly, swing or teleport

The strat for the mission Daredevil! where you fight Daredevil as Elektra also has some new backup strats too. Instead of throwing Daredevil off the map, you can uppercut him in the air (regular attack combo ends in uppercut) and grab him while he's in the air to ring him out

I mentioned in the Character Information thread a new mechanic for Magneto's super grab which makes him much better to play as. As such, it makes his missions much easier and much faster, most notably Master of Magnetism and Death Incarnate.

I uploaded videos of these 2 missions demonstrating this new strat.

Death Incarnate has some other strategies as well which you can see in the video and the description

So I've just found another very interesting strat for the Death By Fire mission

There is a fire pit in this mission which will do no damage to Solara and severe damage to Daredevil in seconds. Lure Daredevil into the fire. Once you get him into the fire, he will make little to no attempt to get out of the fire. It can be tricky to lure him in, but you can use your throws to throw him into the fire

This strat is much faster than trying to beat him regularly by using Solara's projectiles and throwing cars at him (which was the previous strat). I'll look and see if this strat could be used in any other mission

@WeaponLord I know you're taking a break but I think you'll be interested in this

EDIT: I've also just recorded an Any% speedrun with the new strats so once I upload it to YouTube, I'll submit it here. I think I played well but some horrific RNG at points

Another strat for the missions Claws of Fury (only done on All Character Missions) , Blazing Speed (also only done on All Character Missions category) and part of Seek and Devour where you get enemies to jump to their deaths. More info in the video descriptions

I haven't found any more missions where this is worth doing because either the character you play as doesn't have the necessary air or wall mobility, the enemies don't get baited or it's simply not worth doing
