Perfect J.W. Challenge
To everyone who is reading this I am sorry as usual. This week Meow did what Meow does and ran like it was a marathon. I'd also like to note the Wizard with no time, the experienced Arands, and determined Ganil.

-Original Post-

As everyone knows Jwaaap is perfect in all that he does. Crafting worlds from code is what he loves. Causing well designed pieces to move so beautifully. Elements made to form a legacy; hand crafted so they line up carefully. The community comes along; various voices in horrible song, grubby hands claiming its wrong. Ruining the harmony between mechanics and systems. Cause disparity betwixt the code and its rhythms. Breaking everything through various missions. Rami humors them which causes more doubts; is he making the game or entertaining the louts? Obviously the characters, the crowns, the mutations; all perfectly aligned. People ranking them is useless when all are fine. No need to tinker with the flawless design. The Crystal's code is excellent in every line. Breaking perfection; it should be a crime.

The person who posts the furthest most single player recording of a Nuclear Throne run while using Crystal and taking mutations based on tiers before June 28, 2014 will receive a game via steam (note the rules below).

Run Specific Rules:
Recording Rules: The run must be done with update 32. 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 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. Do not put any visual or time related edits (aka cuts) into the video during the duration of the run that; nothing that keeps the run from being seen as normal. Visual edits in the black bars of the game is fine. 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 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 win 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). 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). If the “winning run” is done by someone who has won a challenge before then an additional game will be offered to the person with the best run who has not won a challenge yet; this will count as a win for that person.
Dates: The official end time for responses to this post will be at 11:59 pm on Friday, June 27th, 2014 (right before it becomes June 28th, 2014) based on the GMT time zone, but because I am a stupid American I MAY accept runs that are posted after that time. I should get around to claiming the victor and trying to contact them around June 28th, 2014 (but that is entirely on the basis that my internet provider remembers to pay their electric bills again).

Post additional questions, clarifications, and ideas in the comments.

    -Hyped for a challenge that doesn't involve rolling fish!-

    In all honesty, I really enjoyed the One Hand Challenge. :P

    I'm just waiting for the response for when people actually have to use the "bad" mutations in Tier 4; wondering if it will prove J.W. right or bring the community together in even more agreement. Also curious as to what people will do with the 2nd Link...

    Running aroung with Extra feet + Gamma guts is actually something I'm used to, but then again, I'm usually Fish so I can stick it to em really fast :/

    Hoping for a good loop by the end of the day :P

    The mutations are generally in (reverse) order based on how the community ranked them during a post. Fish or another character would change up the order some, but Crystal is pretty stright forward.

    Pretty much. Having fun with this one! Couldn't do the one-handed challenge because of controller silliness :P

    3-3 and counting! Loving the Pop gun!
