Hey everyone,

Wave 6 is just around the corner, and the mod team would like your feedback on some ideas we’ve been kicking around regarding new speedrun categories and updates to existing categories

If you could fill out the survey linked below, that would be awesome, but here’s the short version of what we’re thinking about. Note that this is designed to give us more data about where the community is at, and we will use our best judgement to decide how best to proceed:

  • Incorporating breaks into the 96 track categories and adding a filter for breaks versus no breaks.
  • Deciding which subcategories of the BCP, if any, we want to have on the main leaderboard
  • Removing the requirement that CPU difficulty be set to hard

IF YOU WANT TO DO 96 TRACK RUNS IMMEDIATELY PLEASE TAKE NOTE:

As far as incorporating breaks into the 96 track categories, we have not yet finalized where the breaks should happen, or how long the breaks should be, and will hold off on creating those categories until the rules are finalized. We recommended if you are going to be doing 96 track runs when Wave 6 drops that you do not incorporate breaks into your runs until the categories are live on speedrun.com to ensure that your runs are valid regardless of what we end up deciding

Please fill out the survey below whenever you get a chance. We've also created discussion threads in the discord that you can find in the #dlc-discussion channel

Hey everyone, just looking for advice on how to hit the NISC at the end of the lap on Dry Dry Desert. I've watched a lot of WR vids, and so I get that you want to get an SMT, but I don't know if / when / how I'm supposed to hop. Some vids it looks like they only hop once, some vids it looks like they hop multiple times, but no matter what I do, it seems like 95% of the time I end up running out of SMT WAY before I get back on the track. Thanks in advance
