Nuclear Throne Forum  /  cleaning up the leaderboards
  vPixlvPixl

ok, so i've been thinking about doing this for a while and i haven't got a complete list yet, but i've been wanting to clean up the leaderboards and remove:

- outdated runs (not on most recent update)
- remove random categories with only one or two runs (think 6 char etc.)
- runs that are not abiding to rules (already doing that now, still got to see if any are not good etc.)

what are the communities thoughts? as much as i hate to remove runs (as many as we have too), i'd like to keep everything clean so that anyone who wants to get into speedrunning the game can have a easy time with navigating runs that are good/bad.

thanks in advance.

- You'd be removing a ton of runs if you removed everything not on u98. Maybe remove pre-release runs, but even then that's losing a lot of scores.

- I think removing 6 char entirely would be good. It's a strange, pointless category, and there's already enough categories to spread entries thin. I will be submitting a Captain run and hopefully a co-op run soon - I think those are good to stay. 12-char isn't a category I'm likely to ever submit a run for, but it is interesting... not sure about that one personally.

- Regarded the just-added rule - I don't think you should retroactively remove runs done in NTT. It barely changes anything from the base game (it's even being used in the summer tournament), and you'd be removing a lot of runs from the already low-population boards.

I think you should keep the 12 char's run, coop one, and captain too 😃

yeah, that was my main issue in removing a lot of the outdated runs. this game is just really hard to keep a good board on because of the constant updates, but for now i think we should keep it until the game ceases or atleast has a long period of time where updates/balance changes don't hit live.

imo our runs should be done on a vanilla version of nuclear throne with no changes; but it's nice to see different opinions on it. i'll consider it in the time being before i make a final decision on whether or not to remove it.

i am going to remove 6 char and keep 12 char - 12 char is the closest thing we have to a 100%/all character run of nuclear throne, so i think it's worth keeping incase some people enjoy running the game with all the characters.

thanks for the feedback. 🙂

Damn, I liked 6 char All Areas and was trying to grind a clean run (as my current submission has long pauses + awfully slow play). I think I might still go for it until I got a run I'm satisfied with, imo it's an interesting category with added decision making.

But yeah, seems like I'm the only one interested in it and my current submission is really borderline so... I have no objection for its removal from lb. I'll just play it on my own. 🙂

Also I've already created a thread about NTT but since the discussion is re-opened here: I'm totally against it. Using an unofficial hack which makes the run faster/easier is not ok. I don't even understand why we're considering it.
