Hello and welcome to the 2014 installment of "predict the theoretical maxes of the game."  This is where people historically make terrible guesses as to which times in Goldeneye are MAXED.  We are predicting a sort of "heat death" or "big freeze" of Goldeneye, where all the energy has been expanded and there are simply no more WRs to get.  Since I have traditionally been the best at telling which times are plausible, or humanly possible, I will do so again, in the 2014 rendition of this elite classic.

Here is a 2009 awful prediction thread by Marcus Stryker:

A thread ShadowZero with little GE knowledge made in 2004:

Here is a lolfest from 2001:

And here are my preds;

(BOLD RED indicates a currently achieved maxed time)

Dam 52/115/145
Facility 42/50/50
Runway 21/22/33
Surface 1 101/145/145
Bunker 1 16/19/100
Silo 58/104/117
Frigate 22/58/101
Surface 2 48/48/117
Bunker 2 23/42/51
Statue 217/217/217
Archives 15/53/53
Streets 111/153/153
Depot 23/39/46
Train 55/120/146
Jungle 49/52/52
Control 354/359/359
Caverns 100/111/127
Cradle 34/34/34
Aztec 121/124/131
Egypt 44/44/44

Feel free to post your own "theoretical maxes" or ask me why I picked some certain times.  Though, I have proven Marc and Clemens wrong so many times with these sorts of maxes that it's better off just accepting my word as that of a man similar to Bran Stark, who has tapped into a higher conscience of the universe.  Marc thinks he knows the truth, but he doesn't.  I don't either.  But I do when it comes to Goldeneye maxes.

Take a look at see if we're laughing at these times in the year 2024.

WRs which should happen:

Facility SA 0:51
Runway 00A 0:34
Bunker 1 SA 0:20
Bunker 1 00A 1:01
Silo SA 1:07
Silo 00A 1:19/1:20
Frigate A 0:22
Frigate 00A 1:04
S2 00A 1:24
Streets 1:54s
Depot SA 0:39
Depot 00A 0:46
Train 00A 1:49
Jungle 00A 0:53
Control A 3:55
Control SA 4:03
Control 00A 4:03 (at least 4:04, 4:03 might be unlikely here)
Caverns SA 1:12
Aztec SA any good run with the new strat, estimating like 1:31/1:32
Aztec 00A, same as above
Egypt A 0:44

WRs which might not happen, but could and would be epic:

Facility A 0:42
S1 SA 1:47
B2 00A 0:53
Statue 2:17s
Archives 0:53s
Jungle SA 0:52
Cradle SA 0:34, possibly 00A 0:34 as well

These are all scary but interesting times. It's always neat to think about how maxed the game will be in the future. Not that I disagree with anything, Goose, I mean I'm basically brand new to running it anyway, but I'm curious as to how you got to Depot A 23. Are there more boost opportunities you see, or are you taking into account the warp becoming a possibility someday?

What makes you think that Streets A 111, Runway A 21 and Bunker 1 A 16 are possible?
No room for 100 in Surface 1 A? It seems strange imo since you guessed things like Depot A 23 and Silo A 58 :p
Cool predictions though

...skipping the fact that the masterful made terrible, terrible S2 preds. The current SA WR beats the predicted max for Agent.

R-Leaning wasn't invented yet.

If you forget about levels that involve R-Leaning like Runway 00A and Surface 2, my preds are MASTERFUL.

Fair point. It is overall a pretty solid set of predictions then.

Isn't taking strats into account which haven't been invented yet the whole idea of making super uber maxed preds?

"Frigate 0:23 0:58 ? (Dave had 58 failed, so it should be quite obvivous though it's pretty unrealistic you'll get a completion with that)"

From the 2009 thread - lends some credibility to the Luke Pettit is legit argument.

That doesn't lend an iota of credibility, actually. What has Clemens (and myself) failing 58s got to do with Pettit achieving it? The pace is possible and hostages can complete at that pace? We've known that for 10+ years.
