Records: [TAP] Death series of 5

Thread in 'Competition' started by Qlex, 24 Feb 2016.

  1. Also called Death Run or Death Carnival : inspired by this thread of the Carnival of Death 2015

    The rules are simple :

    You play five consecutive games of T.A. Death. You sum your levels for each game. The result is your score.

    I have to say, salt motivated me above all at first, but this is a very interesting challenge. You will understand consistency at a deeper level. Give it a try, you might learn a lot!

    The maximum is 5x999 = 4995. Still not attained, but it's close!

    Some links are dead, they're not necessary to get into that ranking anyway.

    Have fun :)

  2. Your 4914 was very inspiring. I know I could break 1000 now, maybe even get close to 1500.

  3. 837.
    Made a handy spreadsheet to easily calculate sets of 5 games:
    upload_2016-2-24_21-14-34.png
    I was only going to play 15 games but then I got two pretty good ones in a row for my last two so I thought "why not?" and went for 16
    Got 221 which is my second best run ever
    I regret nothing

  4. Thanks, and sure thing! Anyone can see what their consistency is relative to their PB :)

    I should really be spending my time today more wisely, but I ended up trying this out. I only played 5 games total and I'm satisfied with how it went. I was aiming for at least 2500 and I'm glad I met that goal. More to come in the future...

    Not bad at all. I can definitely do better (there's a clear outlier there) but for just playing a few games, that went quite well. I shot really really shitty videos of all of them (except the 409 game, where, of course, my phone decided to stop recording) but it's probably not worth proving

  8. My first try yesterday I got 293, 267, 260, 194, 170 = 1184. Despite two more runs of probably 25 games total I have yet to eclipse that. Not giving up though!

  16. Thanks for making my monday morning a bit better than what it should have been. We have some competition here!

    Also that was mentioned in a Twitter discussion, but are you guys willing to try a Shirase series of 5? It's a more consistent game imo so the scores could be a bit easier to improve. I think it would be fun to see to what extent can players reach the highest limits :)
