Thanks for verifying it. There's more to come in the future, but I'd like to ask; Would you like to do the multiplayer category with me, or even play casually?
Yes this was one of my first runs, I realized shortly after that IGT was not the way to time it. It's probably 20 minutes longer due to me taking a break or something and not pausing it. Also abandoning quests resets the IGT I believe. Which is another reason it shouldn't be used. Unless some rules were implemented, someone could easily abandon a quest if they make a mistake or get bad RNG and redo it without any penalty; Not only could they do it but at a certain point it would become mandatory if you want to save time. Anyway what I would really like is if we could get the multiplayer categories back at least. I've not done something like that yet, and it just sounds so unique and fun how can we not have it as a category.
This is it. It's 34 parts long. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHcmKU5JZAnN4Oeac2h9oKL_vqBj_fctk
That sounds like it would make the run take even longer. The run I did already took 6 hours, which is too long for me. What about a ng+ run? Is this something that is feasible? Ok I will link it but I need to upload it first.
I'm still not understanding the segmented run fully. Does it use RTA or IGT? Does the time count during the village? What about during quests? Do only key quests count towards the time? I can somewhat understand why you wouldn't want to add the tigrex category in that case, all I know is this is the game I started on and I would not like to go back to the older ones.
I'm not upset with you, I am disappointed that I'm not going to be running this game. I do have one of my runs saved still, but what's the point, I like your idea better anyway of the category being up until tigrex. What is a segmented run anyway?
I've done several runs up to Shen Gaoren actually. Are you going to be changing the categories back then?
@SlayerOfBabies Firstly you are being very rude, you need to calm down. I never claimed to know which category is most logical and I think it's up to debate if you ask me. I don't see what's so silly about beating the village elder's last quest. I brought up the Monster Hunter quest because I thought that was where the credits came in. Again, my mistake. Regardless It takes too long to beat Rise to the Summit, so saying do a run first is kind of illogical, because I don't want to run a 15 hour category. Whether it ends at Shen Gaoren or Tigrex, I am fine with, I simply wanted a shorter category.
i would like to thank you for adding the categories @European Union. I couldn't have set them up better myself. That's exactly how they should be, a category for each amount of players and a few for the village. I look forward to running this game soon.
I feel completing the game up to the "Monster Hunter" quest is too tedious and not what speedrunning is about. In my personal experience I was barely able to complete that quest with g rank gear, which we cannot get unless we also do the gathering hall quests, which is unreasonable for a single player to do in addition to the village quests. Unless I am greatly misinformed here, I believe it is not reasonable for someone to complete the "Monster Hunter" quest in high rank gear, and it's certainly not something I would like to even attempt. I believe this is why there are no submitted runs and general lack of interest in speedrunning this game. I would like to propose 2 categories, either of which I feel are more reasonable to complete. 1st, complete the Village Chief's quests up to the last urgent, which I believe is Secret Request: Hypnocatrice, thus excluding Nekhot's quests completely; Or secondly, complete the guild hall quests up to and including the final urgent: Absolute Zero.
