You guys are a bunch of fucking assholes.  Do you even realize what it takes to update and moderate here?  He just proved 3 very strong Train times, and basically nobody is required to be 60/60, especially for non-WR times.  But fine, you want to go all provens?  I think I'll make it a project to put that together one day, maybe April fools day, and you can see what an absolute complete joke this place would become and how little competition would remain, and how there would be no incentive for anybody to keep playing.

Oh Noes! my hard drive broke and I lose the video, and I can't do it again, actually I think that means I don't deserve the time.  I'm ready for all provens now, I don't think would affect much, Rayan and Illu always have videos for everyone of their times like true champs, Clemens just has two WRs with no videos, Bryan always manages to provide proof for his times once a year.  I'm all for no 85-90 point or more unprovens, It can't just be for only WRs with clemens getting exceptions for his proofless WRs, because people will claim strong times they didn't do and will get a lot of points they don't deserve.  If you want a top time how hard could it be to make a video?  If people new they'd need proof for train 1:05 I don't think they would have much trouble making sure they got a video.

Nobody's saying you should switch to all provens, but Train 1:05 isn't exactly a trivial time (90+ points).

There has got to a point limit 90 or less points, because it's easy to get top 3 with lots of 90 point times, 90 point times are too valuable not to require proof.  Not requiring proof gives people little incentive to play for 90 point times when they can just make some videos for 80 point times then claim 90 pointers.  It also gives people less incentive to make videos in general, the-elite would be a worthless community without videos.

Spider its not fair for all the people of the past who no longer compete, or didn't realize they rules would get changed on them someday. Sure im up for it, if the elite started at day 1 again, and everybody was on fair ground. Buts its too fucking late now, way to late.

I really don't think it's asking too much to make videos of your 90 point times without videos.  When you claimed that time there was no guarantee you'd get to keep it forever without a video.  If you really wanted your time to last forever you would have made a video.

You think Steven's complaining about his times getting taken down without videos?

If I never lied, I could easily claim a Train 1:05 or a Cavs 1:41 and no one would really care that much. It's just the nature of the competition in this game that you need to trust others. Nothing will ever be perfect, especially not competition in a 10 year old videogame online. Octo is doing an amazing job with the proof moderation so far, better than anyone in the past seems to have done and likely better than anyone in the future will do. If you can't accept a few unproven times (which are like 99% likely to be legit given how many people play vs how many have been caught/admitted to cheating) on the ranks then this isn't the place for you.

I really don't think these claims are 99% legit, It's pretty ridiculous how many times people don't have videos because their hard drive broke before they could upload it, or the tape stopped recording, or they forgot to tape despite knowing they were going for a top level time.  I also think the amount of times people have admitted to fake times and cheated is pretty high as well.  I mean if people like boss and illu can go their whole long careers without a single proof mistake it should happen much less often than it does.

Is anyone objecting to proof required for 90 point times besides the people that want to keep their 90 point unprovens?

What if starting from now you couldn't claim any new 90 point unprovens, that'd still be better than nothing.

If I found out my 90 point unproven times were being taken down because of a new proof policy I'd accept it as there was no guarantee I'd be able to keep a video-less time forever.  It was my mistake for not making a video in the first place, if I had really cared about the time I would have made a video.

I've only ever not been able to make a vid in the following cases:

a) I didn't have a VCR (until late 2005)
b) I didn't tape (stuff I got when I was at my cottage both summers)
c) The VCR ate my tape (happened once and then I bought a DVD recorder, lost stuff like depot 52, s1 149, fac 55 though I did make some digcam vids of 149/55)


I mean, it can happen. But at the rate it happens with Clemens and the brazilians is quite ridiculous I agree. I've been there and I know what it's like to lose the chance to make a vid of a good PR, and it hurts. But really its a touchy situation you need to deal with carefully.

I'm cool

Well, you can't make every player with 85+ pointers or whatever proove those times because, as brandon said, it's way too late for that. You can, though, require proof for those brand new records.

And Octo has done a good job on that, still some WRs don't get proven, but those times are removed and the player is forced to get it again or just lose it for good.

You should be able to to turn off the DivX logo by going into the DivX Decoder Configuration Utility.
[Start->All Programs->DivX->DivX Codec->Decoder Configuration Utility]
And then under the toolbar tab uncheck the "Show DivX logo watermark".

Runway A 0:22
Runway A 0:24 pauseout (the not having the key message was up, so I think this was a more or less legit 22 fail)
Aztec SA 1:44 (very bad run, could have easily been 1:42 even with this lame strat)
Caverns 00 1:44

Those were refreshing to watch. With Illu and I out we haven't seen vids from a top skilled player in quite some time. 22 looked really amazing/low if you can call it that, at least lower than most.

Cervone's vid looked amazing. Runway 22 looked incredible controlled and everything was pretty straight lines strafing, but still very smooth. I kinda like Cervone's style of playing, I think you could probably challenge Clemens/Boss/Isran/whoever if he had the time.

actually it's not because there are many other (better) things to do with your time. Cervone is a great player and could still be ranked up with Clemens or Ace easily yes, but let the man get laid and do well at school ffs.

Glad you guys enjoyed the vids . Yeah its true I have a lot going on right now... extremely demanding academic schedule (double major at the U of Chicago, definitely one of the most challenging schools in the world), keeping up a relationship, friends, politics, etc. But it's actually surprising how nice it is to find the time to play GE. Back 2.5 years ago I was playing GE the usual 25 hours/week or whatever and it was okay but you do constantly grapple with the fact that playing GE is not a very valuable way to spend your time. Now though, being in general a productive person means I can play GE/PD guilt-free for the 2-3 hours/week on average that I do.

All that said, though, I'd never be at the clemens/isran/etc level no matter how often I played these past 2.5 years. During my active career, illu and I had a similar rise up the ranks and often traded pr's. I'd expect to be around the same level he is now... which is to say, having a couple awesome levels, having one or two weak levels, and getting solid 94-95ers on everything else.
