Wait... Platinum medals?
So I got my first Platinum medal today, which I'm assuming comes from acquiring Rank 1 on the leaderboard.

I'm kind of disappointed this medal exists; I can't appease my OCD and get it on every level because eventually all the theoretical maximums will be reached before me!

I was wondering, couldn't the platinum medals be awarded for at least getting a tie with the best time? Seems pointless otherwise.

Platinum medals are awarded for ties with the best time-however, many of the levels have seemingly impossible times (either from an old version or some obscure bug-see the golem introduction level for a perfect example). (e: made a list of all the levels like that, it's around 10, of which I'm certain 5 are hacked)

I had 122/125 at one point, though now I'm down to about 100. Better see if I can match that Dobos 8 time then :P

That's good to know. I guess I was judging by a few A levels I tested that happened to be bugged.

Platinium for best score in the world? Man, that's stupid. I could get a platinum if I bought earlier than some ppl. Why am I punished now?
So stupid it's beyond me. There should be FIXED times that are exactly the same for everyone.

You can get them by tying the best score, which is actually a great idea.

Only problem is that a lot of high scores right now are cheated or glitched, which makes it impossible.

If it was fixed times, then some would end up being very easy due to a faster route being overlooked. (i.e.: for Ninja Thief, circumventing the intended puzzle by stepping on a toggle button the exact frame the golem does to 'jam' them, which saves 4 or 5 seconds).

That said, if a fixed time were to be implemented, I could probably draw up a quick list of some good targets that would require figuring out the 'best' (I'm not naive enough to think I have all the best routes) route, but not necessarily executing it perfectly, as going for those last few frames is a bit of a pain.

If 2 people have the same time, then the person who got the score last gets the platinum medal.
