Super Mario Maker 2 Forum  /  New Category Idea - "Every Ninji Level"
  pretends2knowpretends2know

So, with the Ninji's apparently ending after the twentieth one, coming soon, I wanted to gauge whether or not there would be interest in a category that is essentially run all twenty Ninji Speedrun Levels back to back. I'm not sure if this would be main category or category exentsion if this took off.

Basic rules:
Time starts on hitting "Play" for the first Level.
Time ends on the goal of twentieth level completed.
Level order does not matter so long as all twenty levels are completed.

Thoughts?

but yeah i also think it would be cool a speedrun of "all the levels" if we ignore that every time new levels come up
idk about the number exact because the will no add a new category for every level lol
also, probably when there is a CE is because the main leaderboard is just for the actual categories and every new one is added in the CE

I agree that now that this Ninji series is reaching a conclusion, it is possible to run all ninjis as a full-game run, letting a board add additional value over Nintendo's own individual Ninji boards.

Even though Nintendo has leaderboards too, speedrun.com could do it better. Video proof, view certain times, CE (like all 20), etc.

Yeah, one thing I want to clarify is that I did see Romain's post that there'd be no tracking for the Individual Ninjis. My idea is for a category is all 20 Ninjis, not any of them individually.

Honestly seems like a good idea, I'm pretty sure the other mods would also be on board with it.

We are very interesting on a Ninji category but are going to wait a little "If Nintendo adds any final Ninji-Related features to the game before we add it on the leaderboard".

A category like that makes perfect sense to me. I don't know much about precisely how fast menus are, but if they are variable by network speed might it be worth it to add all 20 in game times? Just a thought

Since I came up with a thread for this before seeing this existing thread; I copy here my rule proposal for this category:

Rule proposal:
- Levels must be run top to bottom in reversed published order (it makes sense to do it this way as to not lose time going up and down the menu and it makes it easier for moderators to check the run)

- Timing starts when you hit "Ninji Speedruns" from the main menu or when you hit "Play" on first level (last level published: Bowser's Castle: The last dash) - up for debate.

- Timing ends when you hit the flag for the last level (first level published, Rolling snowballs)

- Player must obviously complete all 20 levels in the proposed order. No level skipping or level re-ordering allowed.

Ninji% had been added on the extended leaderboard.

The final time will be the addition of the 20 IGT.
