Wynncraft Forum  /  Subcategory cleanup request
  IwerSonschIwerSonsch

Hi! I do have one more request to my previous suggestion of a Single Experience subcategory: Since subcategories take up quite a bit of space and can become hard to navigate, I suggest changing both the XP Multiplier and the Wynncraft Version subcategories to non-obsoleting variables that can be filtered for (similar to currently the "Class" filter, but without the tick on "Values obsolete eachother").

As filter variables allow for significantly more options than subcategories without creating clutter, I also suggest allowing any XP multiplier to be added (e.g. 1.5x for Hunted, 4x for dxp weekend and dxb bomb and discord xp).

"And for the Wynncraft version and DXP subcategories, I think they are fine the way they are right now because it would be little unfair to have a really good run that could potentially unbeatable in the future updates due to future changes and the xp sub category should be alright since its cutting a significant amount of time from the runs" - mLg

That's why they would of course remain as filterable variables so that when looking at the board, it would be possible to only view single XP runs or only view 1.20 runs. Also note that if a version ever becomes so much slower that a run becomes virtually unbeatable, then there is an option to set the latest version as "default" so the board is filtered for that version by default.

The main reason for why I prefer XP multipliers as a variable rather than a subcategory is because there's still a difference between the relatively reliable 2x or 2.5x (Hunted) XP on a DXP weekend and the 4x XP that requires both a DXP bomb and discord XP at the same time, and so lumping those into the same subcategory with no separating variable can be about as demotivating for 2x XP runs as having no separating variable between single XP and DXP weekend

yeah currently it seems like the "2x XP" speedrun option is suffering the same fate that Single XP was saved from when I started speedrunning. I think that a non-obsoleting filter variable for XP multipliers would be best, seeing how 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x (Discord reward), 1.5x (Hunted), 2.5x, 3.5x, and 4.5x are all realistic possibilities for the XP boosts used, and 8 options is definitely too much for subcategories

Done, with the exclusion of Hunted. 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x.

Now I'm realizing that putting hunted is probably a good idea, thoughts?

And considering doing what you said for version, but it does seem a little disheartening for new runners when grinding nerfs make past versions' times appear impossible to approach.
