This week a lot of people put in hard work while trying to out elminister one another. Meow came out on top with an impressive L1: 7_1 run. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_LI88URfagFollowing Meow were Wizard and Qinji with very good runs.[www.twitch.tv] Kurt also posted an impressive run from out of no where getting him credit for a win while[www.twitch.tv] MachinaDeus, Blarf, and[www.twitch.tv] Jack made great strides as well.
Hello. As long term community members may know there is a man called Elminister who is known for his runs. He may not have a challenge win under his belt, but he has been credited with showing people how to dodge. Thanks to his contributions runs have had their distance extended many times over. This week we'll see how well Elminister's lessons have held up. Who can out elminister the Elminister?
The person who posts the furthest most single player recording of a Nuclear Throne run while using Plant, limiting weapons, and restricting mutations before July 5, 2014 will receive a game via steam (note the rules below).Run Specific Rules:Recording Rules:
The run must be done with update 33. 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. 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, July 4th, 2014 (right before it becomes July 5th, 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 July 5th, 2014 (but that is entirely on the basis that my internet provider remembers to pay their electric bills again).
