In the past the challenges were not quite as perfessional as they would become. For those looking to repeat old challenges or see what is contained in the past I have posted this revised variation of the challenge based on current formats. The unmodified challenge is still maintained below the update.Run Specific Rules:
- Players may select any character except Chicken.
- Players can select any mutations.
- Players must start with their default weapon.
- The HUD must be disabled using Control + H on level 1_1.
- The HUD may only be turned on during secret levels.
- Players cannot use the active ability for their character.
- Players may take any crowns.
- Victory is based on distance.
-Unedited Post-To everyone who is reading this I am sorry. Apparently the most chill person here is the creative wiki supporter Meow247 with his impressive early run. Honorable mention goes to hug happy ghosts and awesome camera assassinations
Hello. Its another week so that means another challenge with the standard link to the past for those who want to repeat it.
Some people complained that the Nuclear Throne challenge last week was a bit hard so under Wizard_Amul's previous advisement things have been calmed down this week. The person who posts the furthermost single player recording of a Nuclear Throne run without using the active ability on their non-Chicken character and playing without a hud before May 31, 2014 will receive a game via steam (note the rules below).
Run Specific Rules: Any weapons can be selected, any characters other than Chicken can be used, any mutations can be picked, any crowns can be chosen (including no crown), there is no limit to character levels, gold weapons cannot be used to start with. The entire game can be played normally except you are not allowed to use the active ability of your character during the entire run (cannot right click basically). Players must turn off their hud (control + H) before they leave level 1_1 and may not turn it back on unless they are in secret levels or a vault (it must be turned back off before leaving the secret level or vault).
Complete Standard Rules: The run must be done with update 28 (the current update). 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 thus 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 official time cut off time for responses to this post will be at 11:59 pm on Friday, May 30th, 2014 (right before it becomes May 31th, 2014) based on the GMT time zone (but because I am a stupid American I MAY accept runs that are posted after that time). The player who does the best in the challenge will be offered a game. (yes, games other than nuclear throne will be the reward although do not expect anything too new or expensive). 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 I can confirm the run happened (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. There is no limit to the number of posts that can be made in response to this (as long as it does not become sheer spam). Please 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. If there is a tie I will give the win to the earliest post in response to this (it will be based on when the response is made in steam and not when the video is made). Previous challenge winners can still win this challenge. Members of the Nuclear Throne Dev Team and people associated with the Dev Team can enter the challenge. Whoever wins will have to accept their game through steam by using the friend system (yes, this means I will friend the winner to pass over the gift, no you are not required to keep me on the friends list after the exchange). I should get around to claiming the victor and trying to contact them by May 31th, 2014 (but that is entirely on the basis that my internet provider remembers to pay their electric bills again).
