I disagree. Bryan Bosshardt did not untie Statue OOA 218, which is what it states. There simply MUST be a more grammatically correct way to say this! I'm going insane!

What's driving me insane is that after all these years with the Elite, you still say "OOA" - it's clearly 00A, come on man.

I've no rebuttal. I've done it forever. Probably always will. Sorry for the tilt m8.

Btw, I believe the new board top reads better now. <3

Saying someone 'united' a level is pointless. Any new record is untied by default.

 :kappa:



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.

Fun fact: Bunker 2 is the only level that has had an untied by a different player on each difficulty more than once in the past decade.

24 (BB), 49 (AA), 105 (RI) in 2006
23 (MR), 44 (DC), 54 (RI) in 2014

Pretty cool day in Elite history, the double strat find:

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)

Travis Devlieger unties MBR SA 1:28 (2003)

is this one made up?  I don't think myself, Ace, Boss, Clem, Jimbo, nor literally anyone else in here knows who this guy is.  I don't think the name "Travis Devlieger" has ever once been referenced here in the elite.

Yeah KillerSim7 was a GameFAQs user I used to message on MSN quite a bit. At one point I'm pretty sure he had 300 on MBR?

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.

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?
