I don't know why there is that much heat towards goldeneye or perfect dark. Let's face it, none of you can get 75 on Beach Side 100 coin bonus lap with Green Louie on Bomberman Fantasy Race so why even bother arguing who can walk diagonally in the faster fashion?

Grats on the untied, Boss!  :pimp:

However, that pausing segment at Jonathan nearly made me physically ill.

Big congrats to all the untieds, Boss! As it's been said, most of the non-specialist levels can only be pushed so far by us noobies. :nesquik: Good to see OCJ being combined for much more respectable WRs times!

Very cool to see the Chicago untieds as they've been some of the weaker WRs on the ranks. Ruins LTK untied is also awesome and now we have videos for everything! Taka's global untied count completely hits 0, and the oldest WRs are gone. Excluding Duel, Defense LTK is the oldest from 2014, with everything else being the last 2 years!

Another neat thing to see is literally every untied being Boss/Flicker/Ace, with the exception of what Illu and I have on Air Base. Mouser, Axel, Taka, and Green all gone makes the league a little more respectable in that only dedicated players can get WRs.

Also glad that I won't feel obligated to fix the previously bad WRs and can just play for myself and my own goals. :nesquik: Investigation DLTK is the last real eyesore on the ranks.

Are you going to become the first ever dual LTK champ? :v

As much as it would be cool to see, I gotta defend my pride. NOT letting that happen :nesquik:
But Boss did say he probably wouldnt touch my strong levels (AFO, Maian, Crash, Infil, etc.) so if I improve my worst levels then it'll probably be out of his reach.

I'm just taking 1 level at a time at this point. I didn't expect the Escape LTK WR to come as fast as it did even with a big mistake having Jon shoot at a guard. Yeah I did overdue the pause buffering at Jon push but guards can randomly show up during that part and ruin everything.

Oh for sure. I was more or less just making fun of PD itself because that's a viable strat.  :kappa: :v

WAR! LTK is finally tied! As it should be.  :v

I like how everyone mentions the stuckage in their WAR! runs not knowing if you went faster you'd be dead.

Looks like I'll be losing 1st in LTK points soon, but that's alright.

57 is decent in that even if I had the door after bridge open, then the one before 2nd king would open slower and stuff.. 56 is about as good as it can get with the strat I used.

I love how Boss is exposing (most of) the LTK records. I knew most of them were complete crap.

Nice job dude.

It's not one of the better untieds. There wasn't really much to say except that I used the sissy 2 tower guard strat for consistency early on.

Meh wasn't even that good. First decent completion but very improvable. 1:57 and 0:50 are pretty tardy as well.


Keen on the chuck norris regardless!

Defection - 1:23
-SKIPPED FROM 1:48!!!
-Clutched out a god run after having terrible problems avoiding "Help! Intruder!"
-Goal time was just 1:30 to sweep Sucram; this is like, my PA goal time
-Fairly safe ending and was a low decimal
-ECM Mine bounced onto the hub; amazing

Can't believe this is real...

Chicago - 0:33
-My fastest run ever to the first pause, mostly due to a fortunate guard idle animation
-Many 0:33 fails, a couple of 0:32 fails, and one 0:34 dupe
-Pretty good overall
-A rare Wouter bop in PD LTK
-Brings Boss down to a measly 30 untieds

My original 0:34 back in 2015 was a couple frames off 0:33, and I had numerous fails back then too, but never got around to finishing the job. Happy to patch that up now!

Thanx Icy and Quirky. Yep all LTK's done I'm looking forward to the remaining DLTK levels.
Just thought i would mention i accidentally submitted my Pelagic II LTK time as 6 seconds, i deleted it straight away and added the correct time, i hope it hasn't caused any problems, sorry in advance  :$

War - 0:56
-Open door strategy!
-My first PD LTK untied in nearly 2 years, and 0:57 was my first TWR in nearly 9 months!
-Pretty good, but some bad door luck.
-0:57 was the first TWR between just me, Flicker, and Boss, despite all the battling we've done before!
-0:54 is very possible, as evidenced by my botched ending on 0:57.

The open door strategy here works the same as on SA/PA, but you have to be very quick to make up the time losses to dodging Skedar and grabbing a Callisto. You can't really just murder all the Skedar that come along as it seems to mess up respawn cycles. A couple other tips: while the Phoenix explosion can kill the first King, you still need to be very accurate, so it's easier to just use Callisto. You can also yolo the leave much more as the Skedar that you dodge will often get killed by the Maians and if you're lucky, they'll respawn on the bridge when you peek. If you wait too long, you'll have a gang of them opening the door or warping through it, which I very rarely had on SA/PA.

I almost got 0:54 on my 0:57, but panicked when I killed the second King early and had to reload lmao. I'm stopping here for now though as I got the untied and Boss unsweep I wanted and I'm still busy with getting top 10 in normal mode.

Unlike on SA/PA where open door strategy is an alternative option, it is absolutely the most viable speedrunning strat for LTK! I've got a hunch a certain somebody will tie/beat this rather quickly. :v
