Title: This Day in Elite History
Post by: Jimbo on June 25, 2014, 12:51:56 pm
Something new I am going to start doing for the board top until I get sick of it or run out of ideas. It's easy to look up the history of each day in the GE/PD world record database, but if you guys could post stuff like "Marc Rutzou completes times page and takes 3rd place on this day", that'd be slick!

Any and all input is appreciated. Just looking to switch it up a bit; the Facebook page is mostly dead.

speedruntrainer, it's more like 1:04 pace

6:53 is standard for 1:09 pace, can get 1:08, probably 1:07

6:55 would be standard 1:07 pace, could maybe get as low as 1:05

6:56 is lower than that

funny story about that I remember, It was on PAL, and everyone said it was a fluke (pretty sure he skipped 54). Then wouter tied it on ntsc claiming it was cake on ntsc.

Dat mental block about pal being worse on every level, even though Jungle is clearly worse on ntsc lol
Title: Re: This Day in Elite History
Post by: 404 on October 09, 2014, 02:51:42 pm
I have a strong suspicion that NTSC might just be harder to control but not significantly slower. I base my statement on Jimbo's NTSC 52, a sloppy 3:3 old strat run which wouldn't have been any better than a 53-ɛ with ɛ→0⁺ on PAL for sure.

Title: Re: This Day in Elite History
Post by: bcks on October 28, 2014, 08:49:46 pm
Someone else had 1:08 iirc, not sure if it was old strat or new. Didn't Dan Cervone either tie 1:08 or get 1:07?
Title: Re: This Day in Elite History
Post by: -- on October 28, 2014, 10:15:43 pm
Cervone got 1:07 ancient strat with Obj A up for about 6 seconds.
Eise tied it with a 1:07, the first WR with the new generation of strats, where he waited at the end with A up.

Alex gets 1:06 out of his mind, before raves were mainstream.  There is a 90 second pause at the very first bug throw as well as other extended pauses. He had 2 friends over as well.

Wouter 1:05 nothing special but it's one of Wouter's last untieds which is cool.

Boss gets 1:03 in fall 2005, no video made until early 2007.

Goose 1:04 proven untied April 2006, lasts the full year as proven untied. Huge gyp.  One of the most classic vids of the webcam era featuring CASCADA - MIRACLE.

Goose's redemption Feb 2007 with 1:02.  TNS though spoils it.

Late 2007, Goose fakes 1:01 among others. Clemens also posts 1:01 in the WR topic with no vid (a lie at the time.)  Ace might have as well?

I'm not sure when Henning "got 1:01 and then 1:00" but combined with Clemens' 1:01, Ace's not taped 1:01, the 1:00 worst fail in history etc, Frigate SA is insane.

Post by: -- on January 18, 2015, 10:00:27 pm
Not one of my favourite videos ever.  I feel it was overly sappy.  But I guess I was going through a hard time around then.  I'd spliced some vids in Nov 2007 and disappeared for a bit.  Plus school and everything was kinda shit around then.  First year university and all.  Came back with "Remember Me" ( http://thengamer.com/GE/22-Misc/Remember%20Me.wmv ) untying Silo 00A 1:27 and then a week later nailing Streets SA 1:55.  Damn I was good back then.  The video did bring back some nice memories though :)

I remember specifically I didn't post the record in the WR topic, just a link to the vid.  And all those clips at the beginning were meant to make the viewer question what WR they were about to watch.

Glad you guys liked it :)

Streaming is wonderful and amazing, but it's completely ruined "the reveal."  Before streaming, you never knew what anyone was playing at any given moment, so when you did get an insane WR, you'd spend the rest of the day making an amazing video to go with it.  Then you'd post the whole thing for the community to enjoy and be surprised with when they realized what WR you ended up getting.

It was a good watch! Me and my friends got caught up in the music video thing, but we just kept switching intros instead of always doing new stuff.

Live streamed runs are cool, so are edited/music videos. As long as you don't add like 5+ minutes of irrel bullshit, be clearer on the point you're trying to make.

Agreed. Maybe the level is underplayed, but when I started playing again after like 6 years away from the game, most of times were 60-80 points, and b2 23 was still 90+

B1 SA has traditionally been a bit underplayed (surprisingly); I mean most top players past and present settle for 23 and then move on to other matters. It's a fun but rather troll level. I think most people who currently have 24 or 25 as their PR are capable of 23. B1 23 reminds me of Dam SA 1:19 which used to be worth 91-92 points when it wasn't even a particularly strong time, but every player moved on by the moment they achieved 119 since the incentive to go for 118 was non-existent (only worth 1-2 more points). At least 119 has been degraded lately (deservedly so) with more people grinding for 118.

While he's not the monster anymore that he used to be, remaining roughly top 25 with many times from the early 2000s really shows how far ahead of everyone else he was. 0:51 being worth 75 points 13 years later and fighting against the development of 2.X is absurd.

I meant you were 7th when HB was in front of you, so retrospectively you were 6th then. Whether you still held that rank at the time he was banned is not relevant to this consideration.

So, was that the case?

But he made such a great video with the epic Casino Royale song when he became (proven) GE champ and the 0:55 was some huge surprise at the end of the video.

Such good, relevant times.

Depot SA is a cooked level that needs a video with its history. The historic Wouter untieds, the first Alex/Mouser 2.x run in 2006 that caused controversy, the epic Luke PAL comeback 0:43 run, 2.x and the various strats associated with it and then the Superpad controversy. 0:40 was "untied" by two other people before me, then took 1.5 years to be tied (despite it being the most irrel record on the ranks at that time) and that too by Eric (not saying he's bad, but an RIEB was so unusual to see!) and then was subsequently tied by about 400 people within the next few months. Then Eric was so close to 0:39 but Goose sniped it after about 70 40s. I still remember him saying something like "Depot SA is one of the worst levels" and then "OMG I just got it" in I believe Illu's stream.

Wow, the legendary DC 0:46. Everyone thought this was an epic time because noone had even failed a legit 0:46 before. Was a pretty epic month with Clemens on fire getting multiple WRs and eventually passing Boss, making Boss so salty he made a thread or some post calling out Clemens which I think he later deleted. Eventually Boss accepted Clemens was the better player (http://forums.the-elite.net/index.php?topic=13452.0). I exposed 0:46 after only a couple of months though and even choked 0:45 (possibly 0:44) at the end. 2008 was such a great year.

Thanks mate. Yeah my memory is still pretty good with the most of the records from that era since I was so deep cooked with the games. Unfortunately I don't remember much about the 1:18 grind since I was away from the Elite (from July 2008 - February 2010) but everyone knows it's a top 5 cooked PD record. I set 1:20 in December 2007 during my PD rampage and it was a pretty solid run. Even had the one-blast double kill. 1:18 is just going super quick overall and I don't see it being tied any time in the foreseeable future. Not many have expressed interest in that level and it's an insane time.

This WR was a pretty straightforward 1:07 when the Boris running strat was first used to get a WR in mid 2007, although if that strat never existed we'd see 1:06 for sure now (Clemens and I both got that sometime in 2010, his (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_ZhUMMjjwI) and I believe I never uploaded mine) and possibly 1:05. Remember when Clemens posted a 1:04 which shocked everyone? Even had a missed warp. I tied 1:04 around 2.5 years later on a run with a super bad ending and then Clemens later got 1:03, which I later tied as well. :nesquik: Then he got 1:02 in January 2011, about half a year later, which had a pretty amazing WR post.

The 1:02 story is more interesting. Now from 2011 to 2013, no one really bothered going for this WR. Now I'm not sure if Goose and I started going for 1:02 independently at around the same time, or if I started playing the level right when he did, (a pretty :nesquik: thing I did back in the day with many records like AF1 53, Egypt 45, etc. to expose one of the problems with streaming!) but I started my 1:02 grind sometime in March 2013. Within about 15-20 hours, I had a 1:03 missed warp which was pretty upsetting. Both Goose and I kept going on for this, duping multiple 1:03s, half which were super low and the other half having dumb mistakes. I think he ended up having 9 103s and I had 13 total. The more embarrassing runs were me forgetting about key analyzing during a 1:02 fail (despite having enough time) and Goose's failed 1:02 datathief (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwQnWBZH0fE). Goose streamed daily and it was around this point he started growing to over 100 viewers and got more exposure in the general speedrunning community, while I played offline like a dero.

The day I got 1:02 was pretty cooked. Goose was streaming this one insane run, potentially 1:01 pace with a solid end, but he got trolled and it ended up being a 1:03 so obviously he was devastated. Then about an hour later I got 1:02. I didn't post it in his chat since it'd upset him but he later knew when I posted it to the rankings and then went on a mini rant about how life is irrel (good times, :nesquik:). Eventually he retired from the level. Like a year later, on a top secret channel with a few people including Narcissa (then Cosmo) watching he caked 1:02 pretty fast. The 162 hours is an accurate indication because he kept a total timer for each of his sessions.

Pretty amazing journey I'd say. 2013 was fun. Will 1:01 happen? I failed a legit 1:01 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEmuRZqQGV0), and I'm sure my 1:02 dupe (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_RcJemuD-Q) was low. It's a pretty repetitive and boring level but 1:02 will probably be tied by more people in the future I imagine. 1:01 isn't that insane once people get the hang of Boris running into the MF room, but that extra factor + the level being troll enough is probably enough to discourage people from playing the level more.

Edit - Found my 1:06 old strat! Just look at that ending. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gY7n6YCnmFk Apparently I have about 100 unlisted videos on my YouTube channel. :nesquik:

Reaction vid: http://www.twitch.tv/qweczol/c/5927720
Raw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I4h51kocgI

This took me quite a while to get originally and had stopped going for it for a while, but after AGDQ15 decided to try and go for it again and got it within a couple days
At the time I didn't realized how much I was being held back by a really bad condition stick lol, hence some of the ridiculous turns taken in this run

Egypt 00 Agent 0:45 was an epic one for me. We saw Agent 0:45 in mid 2008 and Clemens came close to getting 0:45 on SA around then as well. Back then it was a little harder because we didn't have the better GG room strafing strat and there wasn't anyone really grinding for 45s. It was tight. And a lot harder in 2008. We saw a lot of 46s by various players (including new players like Lockwood!) from 2008-2013 but no 45 since it was still tight and pretty cooked. After Goose streamed Egypt SA/00A 46 attempts for a while, I randomly thought "hmm maybe I should try to 2.x Egypt. I think I can do it" while waiting for my car after college ended. It didn't take long and I think my 00A 0:45 had a solid decimal. Details (http://forums.the-elite.net/index.php?topic=843.msg380881#msg380881). I remember after I got it I posted "pwned" in the chat. Obviously there was a lot of salt and controversy because of the 2.x usage and Marc denied the record pretty much. I got 45 SA shortly after. Although it took FIVE years to get the 45s on SA/00A, both of them were tied by Marc and Clemens (both with 1.2) within a couple of weeks.

Wow, this 1:36. Amazing day. I can't believe it's been TEN years.

Basically, I was a PD player from for about six months until I decided to speedrun GE and I quickly realised I was insane at Train. It only took me 2 weeks to get 1:06/1:43/2:12, which at the time was 290 points. Getting 1:06 was WILD. I told everyone in AIM and went ecstatic, and I remember Karl making a joke comment about how he'd pay me 20 bucks if I tied 1:06. Anyways, I played SA more after and failed 1:41 by leaving the Train like 0.01 too early (this was the old strat, when we wouldn't wait outside the Train while Nat did her thing)... but luckily the next day I nailed 1:41 anyway! Felt amazing to get my first GE "untied"... then the next day when I logged on AIM Boss told me "check the boards". Then I see this ridic Train unhoard from Henrik (like 4 SA untieds and 1 or 2 00A ones)... so obviously I become devastated I lose an untied. Such a funny post looking back. (http://forums.the-elite.net/index.php?topic=1130.msg214860#msg214860). Do read the entire thread if you want info and how people reacted to the strat. I was so salty I claimed crap like 1:40 SA old strat, 1:47 LLTK, etc. Then exactly a year later in February 2007 I started raping the level... lowered all 3 WRs by a good margin.

Amazing discovery though. Surprised people didn't realise that strat before, when it was pretty much used on Agent 2-3 years before it was discovered.

9 year anniversary of Train Agent 1:01 too mate, how could you forget! Good times these were and I can't believe it's been so long now.. it was good to see 1:22 finally happen after so many people got 1:23. It's actually insane when you think about it. From 2003-2007, about 10 different good players played the level and many of them skipped to 1:23 from 1:25. You'd think one of them would get 1:22 since 1:23 wasn't anywhere close to a maxed run but nope. Same thing with 00 Agent 1:42. A lot of people tied that one too despite it being pretty unmaxed.

1:22 lasted for a few months. I believe Boss tied it in summer of 2007, and Clemens & I tied it days apart in fall. Then Boss later sniped a 1:21.. you know when I think about it this level could make a really good folklore / historic video.

The way that the board top reads now, suggests that BB untied Statue OOA 218 (with a time BETTER than 218). I don't feel that it is grammatically correct.

It SHOULD say BB untied Statue OOA 219 with a time of 218, Or BB set a new untied on Statue OOA with a time of 218.

Word-Smythes please offer a more accurate way to verablize.

Thank you.

If he "untied" "Statue 00 2:19", then it means that "Statue 00 2:19" became a 1-way, untied, world record. That isn't very helpful.

The smarter way to put it is to say he untied "Statue 00", with "2:18" right after it, to inform what became the new world record. Just like Jimbo's been writing so far.
Title: Re: This Day in Elite History

True, but it'd be less confusing than saying something like "achieves" (WR here), as it could be relating to a TWR, or an untied being tied. Easier to just have it "unties ***" or "ties ***".

But that's just like, my opinion maaaan.

This Day in Elite History (March 30th)
Trent Hovis, a former top 4 player, shoots Trevelyan on Statue in frustration and stumbles upon a monumental time-saver that would change Statue forever. The records would fall from 2:26s to 2:21/2:20/2:20 fairly quickly. (2003)
Michael Kirkness becomes the first player to execute the new Caverns SA mine throw, and subsequently gets his first untied record with 1:18. A few hours later, it would be tied by BB and the race was on. (2014)

No one has ever, in the history of the elite, before today, referred to KillerSim7 as "Travis Devlieger."

I'm shocked that his real name was publicly available, as it isn't for most of the PD players who left before 2004.
Title: Re: This Day in Elite History
Post by: AZ on May 23, 2016, 09:01:21 am
I did a forum search for "Devlieger" just for fun and got 9 results. It's true that his name is very obscure (even for an ancient PD player) but he is actually the only player in elite history to have held an untied sweep while not ever being ranked inside the Top 25.

Some of the Brazilian PD players fall in the same category (Bruno "chuck" Teixeira, Gustavo Haluch "kack" dos Santos) as well as Keith "Keefer" Macwhirter just to name three PD players with very obscure real names.

What is obscure about those names? Or do you expect a Brazilian to be called Johan Johansson?

Chicago 0:15 was mindblowing at the time. On the front page, they put up 10 different links for the video with 9 of them being fake. I struck out 6 times on my old 56K connection, so it took a while to actually see the video. The music overlay was "lollipop", so that vid is legendary.

Tier 1 relevance day.

Bryan's 3:11 broke the LSU across both games (FB's 3:12 on Attack Ship in late 2006). This was HUGE news. It's also worth noting that FB's 3:12 was a 3 second untied.

G5 went from being Karl's level to my level. 0:37/0:42/0:53 was an untied sweep achieved in ONE day.

The first ever 0:54 on Archives Secret Agent, by Clemens, stripping 17 people of a world record. It remains the WR 10 years later, now with 32 ties.

Apologies in advance if this has been asked before, but is there a list where one can view the information without waiting for the relevant day to roll around? I'm trying to find out how many days there are on which untieds have/have not been achieved?

This is a list of all WRs ever achieved in PD, with dates and all, if this helps you. You can also change the date at the bottom.

... I get some actually surprising figures of 1 in 119 for the 2:06 ending and a mere 1 in 12 for the 2:08's.

I wrote a quick C++ program to simulate 10000 runs, and the results were pretty much identical to yours.

First source is dubious at best. Second is pretty solid, so quit your doubting :p

(Probably) August 3x 2018 - the GoldenEye Rankings hit 1000 players for the first time.

I missed the 1000th player (currently at 1002), can someone check the exact date?

This week in 1963, the Arecibo Observatory opened in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. For more than 50 years, the observatory’s 305 meter (1,000 foot) radio telescope was the world’s largest single-aperture telescope. It would be used for many major discoveries including the first direct imaging of an asteroid.

November 11 2018 - Karl ties Ace in total Rare points (https://rankings.the-elite.net/rare-ranks).

I think it's been 6+ years with Ace as the sole Rare champ.

Karl had been ahead earlier already, but actually dropped back down after the Clemens Investigation destruction.
