Re: wtb non retarded rounded down minute times

I still fail to see how having somebody else, who neither has invested as much time as you nor done a better job than you, beat you by copying your tactic and getting a good spawn will increase the activity of an already dying comunity. The only ones benefiting off such a rule would be people with ...

Re: wtb non retarded rounded down minute times

Does anyone here really believe, that such a change would benefit the activity of Guild Wars Speedrunning? I honestly doubt anyone owuld still invest hundreds of hours to achieve something that can easily be broken without revolutionizing anything. The "Reward" is just not worth it. Guild Wars isn'...

Re: wtb non retarded rounded down minute times

Still, you should not be required to run a third-party closed-source application just to be eligible for a record. Attaching a compiled Dll to Guild Wars takes a lot of trust. (yes its me saying this, and thanks community for trusting me - whether you thought about it or not) Valid point but this o...

Re: wtb non retarded rounded down minute times

I disagree with you here. I've seen it happen in singleplayer games, and I'd hate to see it happen to GW records. There are people who put in a significant amount of time - sometimes even more than the actual runtimes - in testing new tactics and coming up with the bars and splits and stuff. Then t...

Re: wtb non retarded rounded down minute times

The problem is, if records are second based you actually SHOULD NOT improvise to the situation given to you. If it is not the absolutely best situation imaginable YOU SHOULD resign the run, because otherwise it would be beatable by the next team that grinds for perfect situations all run. And does ...

Re: wtb non retarded rounded down minute times

@misty in some areas (Underworld and Urgoz being obvious examples), stuff starts happening as soon as the first player spawns - waiting for a slow loader messes with timing. Fair enough, we can find a way to sync up party timers if we so desired so that if one person moves the entire parties timers...

Re: wtb non retarded rounded down minute times

There are almost NO "locked" records. Tacitcs are known often, possibilities are known. Sorry but if we as a community want to achieve the BEST POSSILBE times, then let's get them down in minuetes first and then let's have a talk about seconds. GuildWars is, liek Jang said, a very easy to play game...

Re: wtb non retarded rounded down minute times

i 100% agree with what jang mentioned. its just no good idea to try and introduce second based records now, speed clear records have always been measured by nothing more than the ingame timer. if we make a 3rd party program to control our ages, it will lead to many many discussions after each new r...
