This week Forkkify came in once again and ruined dreams, the dreams of Def in particular. For those who were not following the challenge as it happened; Def held onto a clean sweep for several days before the community as a whole took him down.[www.twitch.tv] Among those taking back the challenge were Shaton[www.twitch.tv] and Kurt (Bob) who plays in the most optimal way.[www.twitch.tv] During the challenge Wizard put up a tough fight before Def knocked him down. I'd like to throw out nods to Arands, K.H.
, Cygnus. 123 glasgows to go!
, and 0phan7om0 who fought for the Crown of Destiny before Def showed up.
In the past there was a cat who did challenges while stealing the hearts of community members. Normally a game playing cat would be unusual, but at this level of insanity
community talking cats are fairly normal. What set him apart was his ability to push runs as far as they could go. To this day he is the only runner who ever had the lead in wins over Wizard at any time. This week the rest of the community shall follow Meow's example while dealing with some Awesome Crowns; Crown of Death, Crown of Hatred, Crown of Blood, and Crown of Destiny.
The person who posts a single player recording of a Nuclear Throne run while using Y.V. and collecting the most crowns before August 9, 2014 will receive a game via steam (note the rules below).Run Specific Rules:
- Players must select Y.V.
- Players can start with the golden revolver or any other gold weapons.
- Screen Shake must be set to 0%.
- When players first enter a crown vault they must select one of the Awesome Crowns; this will determine their group.
- After a player has selected at least one crown they may select any crowns they want inclusing no crown; selecting no crown will not count as a crown for this challenge.
- Victory is based on the amount of different crowns collected during a single run; selecting the same crown multiple times during a run will not increase the score.
- If two players collect the same number of crowns then the tie will be broken based on the number of kills.
The run must be done with update 38. After the run ends please leave the death screen up for at least 5 seconds so the end level can be confirmed; the kills during the run will be determined by the death screen assuming it appears accurate and will determine who wins. In the event of a lock up the last level that fully loaded ,and was seen in the video, will be counted as the final level. The game cannot be modded aside from the use of recording software. The run must be done on a version of the game that all Nuclear Throne players have access to. The video must also be viewable in the U.S. so that the run can be confirmed; strongly suggest Youtube or Twitch. The videos must be imbedded in responses to this post or have a direct link to the video in the response to this post. Do not put any visual or time related edits ,aka cuts, into the video during the duration of the run. Audio edits and voice overs are fine. If you pause or go afk during the run just leave it in the video. Win Rules:
Players can post as many runs as they want as submissions as long as there is no obvious spam; players are also encouraged to post their best runs even if they do not win. If there is a tie I will give the win to the earliest unedited
post in response to this; it will be based on when the response is made in steam and not when the video is made. If the post is edited after I have seen the video in an unedited post then it will still be accepted. Previous challenge winners can still win this challenge. Members of the Nuclear Throne Dev Team and people associated with the Dev Team can win the challenge. Whoever wins will have to accept their game through steam by using the friend system. This means Solid will friend the winner to pass over the gift, no you are not required to keep Solid on the friends list after the exchange. The player who does the best in the challenge will be offered a game of Solid's choice. Yes, games other than nuclear throne will be the reward although do not expect anything too new or expensive.Additional Win Rules:
The top run for each category will be offered a very minor game of Solid's choice and a position in the conclusion of the challenge. The standard rules and dates still apply to all runs. The same person can win multiple times. Dates:
The official end time for responses to this post will be at 11:59 pm on Friday, August 8th, 2014 (right before it becomes August 9th, 2014) based on the GMT time zone. However Solid is a stupid American and MAY accept runs that are posted shortly after the posted time. Solid should claim the victor and try to contact them around August 9th, 2014 However that is entirely on the basis that Time Warner Cable remembers to pay their electric bills again.
