Half way through this week Meow just started stomping on people and even took down Wizard with his own technique. Cygnus was the lone survivor of the stomping. I'd like to note some people who got stomped on by Meow like Stop the Insanity, Ganil, Kurt,[www.twitch.tv] Arands, and finally Wizard at the last second. Special thanks to Gieron for being involved in the challenge; if anyone has any spare time you should talk to Gieron and tell him how to do his job (he loves that).[www.twitch.tv]
-Original Post-Hello. Karmelyth and Gieron suggested a nice relaxing challenge.[nuclear-throne.wikia.com]
For those who don't know Gieron is the single most active wiki member. He is so active that he has made more posts and edits to the wiki than all other persons combined. In spite of the crazy nature of his fanatical work Gieron is a totally calm individual who is super passive. Fitting with his disposition is a chill challenge. Something so calm that the real challenge will be staying awake during runs. Special thanks to McSwift for unknowingly testing the run; he confirmed it was nice and calm. Categories will be determined by starting weapons.
The person who posts the further most single player recording of a Nuclear Throne run while using Eyes, using certain weapon types, selecting Throne Butt, and perpetually using the active ability before August 30th, 2014 will receive a game via steam (note the rules below).Run Specific Rules:
- Players must select Eyes.
- Players must use Eyes' active ability at all times.
- Players can only start with the golden shotgun, golden machine gun, golden grenade launcher, or golden crossbow.
- Players can only pick up weapons of the same type as the one they started with (as defined by the wiki).
- Throne Butt must be selected if it is an option.
- No limit to crowns.
- Victory is based on distance.
The run must be done with update 41. After the run ends please leave the death screen up for at least 5 seconds so the end level can be confirmed; the distance of 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 29th, 2014, right before it becomes August 30th, 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 30th, 2014 However that is entirely on the basis that Time Warner Cable remembers to pay their electric bills again.
