Official tournaments, but also any competition, challenge of the week or other player initiative for competitive crawling.

New Leaderboard for Fastest Times by Species

While watching Demise's recent speedrun stream, in which he attempted to realtime speedrun unconventional races like DE, Tr and Fe, I came to the conclusion that having a leaderboard like the combo highscore board on CAO would be a great tool for the realtime community. Thankfully Ultraviolent4 was willing to host this table alongside his overall leaderboard for speedruns at http://www.ultraviolent4.com/speedrunni ... by_Species. I think this is great way to expand realtime speedrunning beyond just the overall fastest run, which is getting harder and harder to beat as it closes in on 30 minutes, to something more like the highscore community, in which getting any combo highscore is considered an achievement.

At the moment, if you beat a record and want to have it show up on the leaderboard you have to contact UV4 or I so that we can update it manually, but I plan to make a bot to automate the process in the near future.

PS: If anyone wants to claim the Ba record set on comborobin (BaMo^Chei) then PM me and I'll have UV4 replace comborobin with your main account's name.

i like how the fastest Vp has 4 runes and cleared elf and crypt

minmay's games also violate the "No lua script at all is allowed in the rc file" rule however

Please include people beyond just #1 in each category. Even if it's just their names linking to morgues for #2-10. IMHO this would encourage more competition.

Consider old runs grandfathered in :)

Amusingly, the top 10 DD list would be very similar to the fastest 10 runs ever.

OpWn shouldn't stand at 02:00 for long, I also did crypt+elf:3 that run. Not that anybody cares to run that, I only play crate-crawl nowadays.

This is a good idea, although I might reduce it to 3-5 so that the table doesn't get too bloated. This is too much work to do manually however so it will have to wait until I make a bot.

  Code:
3129. inmateoo the Grand Master (L27 VpFi of Cheibriados), escaped with the Orb and 3 runes on 2018-05-08 19:29:28, with 2037120 points after 48867 turns and 1:34:47.


Congratulations to inmateoo for breaking the vampire record! I'm sure that this will be just the first of many species records to be broken in the near future.
