Hi everyone ! It has been about 8 year since I've hanged out in this place and I'm still not a Death Master. How about changing that before I reach year 10 ? From the record thread, I need to shave of more than 30 seconds to break the torikan (3:54:10) So here's three typical game where I'm not failing completely before level 200, and where I'm playing more or less casually (not trying to blow any records, it just happens to be good games). (btw, those can be viewed at 60fps if you use Chrome) Things I know how I'm lacking and I know how to do it better: Section stop: Far too often I have lost precious seconds to the level stop. I need to prepare myself to make a line when I'm reaching level X95 or so. Things I know how I have to do better and I have no idea what I should do about it: Finesse: I play on keyboard (far more convenient for me), and I think I tend to double tap a lot. But I'm not sure if I have any other choice than to double tap when I do it. And I'm not sure either if all my moves are efficient enough. Way too many singles: when trying to repair my stack and/or digging through garbage, more often than not I find myself making single instead of going for double or triple. IIRC it's not that of a big deal past lvl 100, but still it bugs me. That leads to: Efficient stack repair and/or keeping the stack clean: Sometime it takes ages to get back to a clean stack. Looking at some other recording of more experienced players, they either correct their mistake very quickly, or decide to build over their hole or go full YOLO and somehow brute force their way through the torikan with some sort of voodoo witchcraft. I have no idea what should be my stance on that. Locking: it seems to me that everyone and their mother locks faster than me, particularly in the early levels. Is my self-analysis correct ? Anything to add/help me with ? (I also welcome any commentary on my runs) Should go back playing Binding of Isaac instead (26 achievement left!) ?
