New category submissions

There are already quite many categories on the leaderboard, and even more categories are possible for this game. Since I don't like flooding a leaderboard with empty categories, I made this thread so that everyone can request a new category when you start running it.

If you want to request a new category, please make sure that you provide the following points:

  1. A video of the run. This is important, since I won't add empty categories. Your run will be the first one in the category.
  2. Some short notes about the runs, which rules does it follow (e.g. no glitches, current patch etc.). If there is a similar category, please also point out where the differences are.

  1. My runs on mono school classes: -Warrior (warfare): -Defender (defense):

  2. Hello, im tournament organizer and a little bit speedruner, yesterday was ended one of first speedrun tourney on mono classes (Any% hardcore glitchless Surt kill) with a rules: A) Without deaths. Any death kills a run. B) Warrior class only. C) Official speedrun timer (Livesplit). D) Glitchless. E)Current official version, TQ Anniversary Edition. Without deaths was finished 4 runs, guys will register on a site and will post a link on their runs just like me. In future plans tourneys on each mono school classes.

My run in the tournament "Hardcore Warrior Speedrun":

Hey there, Interesting request. I'm currently getting some input from other members of the TQ community on how we can set them up. Just one question beforehand - Do you only plan one tournament per class or are you planning on doing more over a longer time period? Because technically the requested category is just a Glitchless Ragnarök with just some additional arbitrary challenges. And within the community we had the policy up to now that we don't add an extra leaderboard if it's just for one or two runs with an arbitrary ruleset. To get the category, we normally require at least the will to do runs and time improvements over a longer time period.

"- Do you only plan one tournament per class or are you planning on doing more over a longer time period?" as i said in future will be tourneys with all mono school classes but only if u will add new category, and mb some runners ouside of Russia will join too.

Another run, by Manlak: can't contact with him now. he will post this link later by himself

if u will add category at least one runner aka 'A4TechiesTV' will do the run too and will post result, im assume his result will be wr. Im pretty sure time by time some of us will do runs without tournament just to get better time and to have fun. Why mono school is important? Cuz category 'Ragnarek' is runs with one class only and only with softcore mod - that is booring imo, look at diablo 2 runs - there is gradetion by each class and with softcore\hardcore mods, imo titan quest need something like this that is why we trying to bring something new and fresh in dying titan quest speedruns segment.

So, I just created the category: Category "Solo Mastery" SubCategory "Ragnarök (Glitchless/HC)"

All runs will be listed there, with the mastery being a non-obsoleting filter (meaning if a runner submits a run with warfare and one with defense, both will be shown on the same board).

While checking the so-far submitted videos, i can already see that there are some problems:

  1. the video last posted was a) dual-posted for 2 different names ("Manlak" form Rage and commentless , which normally means for themselves from "dagnonn6"), and b) it's already unavailable, making a verification impossible.
  2. The Stopping of the timer differs from the way we normally handle it here on the leaderboards. Usually in the speedrunning-community you stop the timer when reaching the credits, and so we also have it in our rules that the timers are stopped when you enter the portal after the boss that does (or used to) lead to the credits. For Ragnarök that would be the portal after talking to Wotan. I'd really like to have a unified set of base rules (and timer start/stop is a base rule), so it would be nice if you could adjust stopping the timer on the portal instead of on boss kill.
  3. Especially for Warfare and later Rune Mastery Runs: Please use female characters. There is a Glitch in the game that gives you additional movement speed when dual-wielding throwing-weapons on a male character. This glitch can always trigger if you switch away from the throwing weapons while running. This glitch is of course banned in Glitchless and it cannot happen when you play a female character. Since you played male characters, i have to check the whole video footage to make sure that this glitch is not triggered by accident, so it makes run verification alot more difficult.
