I think you can say someone deserves a wr but that doesnt mean he gets the wr without doing the run first. I mean its odd to say someone that has played for a time/wr in one hour deserves it just as much as the one that has played the same level in 100+ hours because of luckfactors are being gay, if you get me. WAR! is such a level where skill barely means anything.

Good job on 2:11 Ace

Well, most of my experience is from PAL, I dont really know how ntsc is working. In a way I see what you mean Henrik, like getting nervous when a run happens and misses the last king or something, thats a question about skill.

it's only skill when you can succeed every single time in the case you have the skill for it. I don't think anyone hits that shot every single time no matter how well they know where the king is, thus it's also luck for sure. it's probably even more than 50% luck in my experience, most of the time the Skedar haven't opened the door in time to do the shot or they are in the way. There's not much in the game that is pure skill..

If you're talking about the Wouter shot, then yeah there is some skill (or at least knowledge) involved. I've probably pulled it off close to 100 times, and the most consistent I've ever been was 1/3 to 1/2 on legit tries in any given session. But there's also a lot of luck involved just in that one part. Like Wouter said, the last door needs to be open. If it is open, then it can't be completely blocked by Skeds (although I've gotten some miracle shots through). There can't be a Sked in your blindspot when you strafe to the door. The lag has to be right so you can time your shot correctly. And if you make the shot, you still have to survive for 2 extra seconds, which is sometimes impossible (see my 53 fail from months ago).

Fact is that you don't need a miracle last-king shot for 0:54 (see Karl's vid for that), so if you're really fast and lucky at the beginning you can probably take some more time to aim.

It takes way more luck to get a run that fast than to make the shot. Obviously I've seen Karl's 54, and I don't recall ever having a run go that well for me in all my time playing. And also, we're not even talking about 54 anymore, we're talking about 53 and under.

Ace is so bad at this game he couldn't even beat boss with pal only

But seriously, Ace is the only player to break these minute barriers:  24:00 A, 33:00 SA, 39:00 PA, 1:36:00 total, and 1:35:00 total!!  expect 38:00 PA to fall soon too

I thought 54 used to be the best G5 WR and now... 52! I thought your 53 looked really good, but Maian 2:03 is maybe the most insane, probably more insane than 1:06.

Congratulations on those Ace!

Rayan's 41 might be fast, but it probably doesnt have as much as feel as my 45 had

I can't help it. Though I am at vacation and told myself to check the boards, but not to post, This is getting out of hands!

G5 0:41.....Maian SOS 2:02....whaaaa incredible Ace!

Lol @ Otto saying PD is destroyed, you're right! Just when you thought those WR's coudnt get any better, then it's already improved. I think Ace's skills are beyond everyone's and its simply amazing to see this happening.

Can't wait to see more video's from Ace. They look so easy

Ace, keep it up, you're the best of the best.

but yeah, I agree with Dan, 41 is kinda lame, 39 should be done!

yes, YES!!!!

.. and 41 can't be anything but good, Cervone just meant the other times Ace just got, and he only said that because Ace owns or something and Dave doesn't know anything about PD and both of them were drunk too probably.

Escape SA 3:19
- Good beginning 0:52.xx Jon (like always)
- Jon started pushing at 1:13.50 or so (kinda bad for me)
- Jon 1:44 mid (horrible!)
- 2:28 mid cinema (horrible)
- Best Elvis I've ever seen
- High 2:45 talk, maybe even 2:26 flat
- Risky ending
- Must have been like 3:19.90
