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 must select Melting.
- Players cannot select the Rhino Skin and Throne Butt mutations.
- Players must start with their default weapon.
- Any weapons may be used.
- Players may take any crowns other than Crown of Destiny.
- Victory is based on distance.
To everyone who is reading this I am sorry. The Evil Wizard Challenge is over. This week it seems 7_2 became a wall for all the top players. This time the creative Meow247
, humble Qinji
, and legendary Wizard_Amul
ended up with a three way tie. Honorable mention goes to Rami[www.twitch.tv]
. I will post another challenge after the next update is released (or it is confirmed that there will not be no update).I'd also like to throw out some links to other community members who didn't win, but still did really well
Hello. As some may be aware Wizard_Amul beat the first challenge
, the second challenge and was strong in the third. At some point some ideas were being kicked around and he suggested Melting with no Rhino Skin or Throne Butt
(Sam gets some of the blame for this as well
The person who posts the furthest most single player recording of a Nuclear Throne run while playing as Melting and not selecting the Rhino Skin or Throne Butt mutations before May 24, 2014 will receive a game via steam (note the rules below). Have fun seeing 1_1 a lot.
Run Specific Rules: Only the Melting character can be used. Any mutations other than Rhino Skin and Throne Butt can be picked. Any crowns can be chosen except for Crown of Destiny (no crown is still allowed), there are no limits to character levels, there are no limits related to weapon pick ups, players cannot start with gold weapons, Melting's active can be used.
Complete Standard Rules: The run must be done with update 27 (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 23th, 2014 (right before it becomes May 24th, 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. 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 deal with it as the situation allows. 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 around May 24th, 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.
