Mostly for fun ¯_(ツ)_/¯

The more people in the game, the tougher the enemies are as well. It kinda all balances out.

Hey all, Flamming Fire has found a new glitch which is going to change the categories a bit - you can now skip from Barb Boss straight to Pirate Ship and from Desert Chase to Flooded Temple. This skip only works on NG due to it being linked with the character unlock screen (unless you start with the Barbarian or a DLC character). No one has got the skip to work in co-op yet either, which further limits this to solo NG.

Due to the skip to Pirate Ship, half of the levels will be skipped. To combat this another category is going to be made, NG NMG. All of the current runs in NG any% will be moved to this category. Since this glitch only works with a small handful of characters for NG+, there will not be a NG+ NMG category.

The only glitch so far that is considered a "major" glitch is the level skip, which will be the only glitch banned from any%.

If anyone has any different suggestions that they feel is better, please reply to this forum. Changes will be made once everyone can come to an agreement.

There was a 100% co-op category for a while but it was empty so we removed it. If a 100% co-op run was completed then we could easily add the category back.

The only problem I can see with using the IGT is that you'd need to add up every attempt of every level. The best way to time games like these are with a load remover but unfortunately one doesn't exist for this game that I'm aware of.

Instead of making a separate discord server, the devs have made a server and general speedrun discussion is allowed. Anyone is allowed to join!

If you do not have a Discord account, you can make one for free at http://www.discordapp.com, after that you can join the server by clicking on the link https://discord.gg/marbleskies

I agree with this except you should make me a mod as well

No autosplitter exists for this game as of now. Splits are there to check how your run is going as well, the only splits that really matter are the first one and the last one, but the mod that verifies your run should double check them as well.

First I'd like to say thanks for the comprehensive post, Gameguy! the amount of detail you went into is pretty crazy.

These rules on speedrun.com for NG and NG+ have been this since before I was mod and I just assumed that they were standard, however the mods and I have discussed your post and are considering changing the current rules to match the SDA rules, but we want to leave some time to ask the runners of this game what they would think of this change. Personally, I think that the SDA rules are better than the current rules and will make the leaderboards look cleaner, I made some changes a while ago that people do not seem to like, sorry about this.

The only problem that we have with this is that several runners have submitted a time for both NG and NG+, and if we merge these then they would lose a time from the leaderboards which some runners may not like, so we're just checking with everyone that we can reach.

The NG+ that you described was the original plan for NG+, but I later decided against it in favour of the current rules since people would want a level 99 character to be as fast as possible, however if we kept current NG rules then they'd lose their level 99 characters whenever they wanted to do a NG run.

Regarding full moon skip we may just ban it entirely since it is only possible on the unpatched version of the game on Xbox 360.

To comment on slippys post, that's a much better idea and we will definitely make that change soon. Thanks!

Our current idea is to merge the NG and NG+ runs keeping only the fastest time from each person (since there 31 characters, 31 different submissions from the same person would be untidy) and a change to the NG rules to allow any character as long as they're level 1 with no gold and are allowed the bow, shovel and boomerang from the start of the run.

The NG+ rules would be the exact same as NG expect the character can start from any level, but must still go through the levels in order and are not allowed to visit any shops that they wouldn't be able to get to (returning to map at Cyclops Cave and going to Lava Store for example) and are allowed to start off with gold, potions, bombs, sandwiches and the horn with any weapon and animal orb that they want.

Many thanks.

Hey all, had the great idea that we should get a Discord server going so we can talk about the newest strats and stuff. After the hype around the instant pencil insertion strat, we should have a community to discuss this stuff.

If you're already a Castle Crashers runner, or feel like picking the game up, then feel free to join the Discord server!

If you do not have a Discord account, you can make one for free at http://www.discordapp.com then you can join the server by clicking this link: https://discord.gg/N3g6Ebc

This is the Castle Crashers Wiki Discord, however we use the speedrunning channels in there for all speedrun related discussion.

Thanks for the heads up, Twitch changed their VOD URLs a while ago so it'll all need updating. As for IL's, the main reason that they have not been added is because of the differences in characters and levels. While it could be said that you can do the IL at any level with any character, it would probably get messy quickly. Another reason that it is not added is due to the lack of runners of this game. If there were more runners then something could be sorted out.

That's just a silly glitch, not a real weapon in the game. So no, it would not be counted.

EnglandJangoosed7 years ago

360 is still fine to run, there's very little difference between the versions that matter for the speedrun.

There is now a 100% category added. Feel free to comment here any rules that you believe should be added/removed.
