Epic records Kitaru. Go for Gm!
By the way are the top spots on the Grandmaster Ranking by someone else or did you just use the same nvram for some experimenting and practice? If it's the latter you should avoid playing for real on the same nvram.
Excellent job, Kitaru, congrats on M!
We all know Gm is within your grasp, you just need to get there and do it. Don't let your mind fake itself out, you're almost there!
I must destroy my Nemesis ! Damn you ct amnesia() 14() Kitaru !
ah ah what a joke .
Multiply it by infinity, and take it to the depth of forever, and you will still have barely a glimpse of what I'm talking about.
I'm still very pleased with the M. I have been off just slightly from getting the M-Roll for a little bit now, so it was a relief when I finally tied it all together, haha. I just think I can do much better on the credit roll. Invisible modes with Hold and floorkicks have made me weak and taken away my creativity. I guess I should play Phantom Mania with Classic2 more than Classic3!
TAP bugs are funny. I thought that was bizarre too, but they got filed into the proper spots on the ranking, hahaha.
Is there any sense to the ranking glitch you got? I've noticed something similar but I haven't been able to see the full pattern. I know you need at least M for the bug to show itself, but that's it.
Whoooooa. Congrats Kitaru! That's huge!
You'll probably be Gm within a week
First time: S9, S9, S9. 3rd, replaces the green line.
Second time: M, S9, S9. "Out of ranking," but it actually bumps an orange line off. I was thinking M is treated the same as S9 on that screen, but handled appropriately in the bit of code that actually puts it in the ranking.
That sounds very reasonable and probably explains everything. I wonder if GM is ranked lower than S9.
What if the today's ranking contains only S9, and you get M... Would you even get to enter your name? :iiam:
I think it is just the actual display on the name entry screen that is bugged.
I'm still shaking. I knew I could do it, but for some reason I almost can't believe it. This is incredible!
I'm taking a celebratory ice cream break and then heading off to bed in ~15 minutes. I'm so glad I pulled this off... Now I won't have to worry about it during finals! Hahaha.
I tip my hat to you.
I am impressed you got M so many times so quickly.
I hate you. Go away.
HOLY SHIT YES KITARU
Nice!! Well done man!
I hate you too
Well, actually, I'm surprised it took you so long to get the Gm rank with your impressive skills (invisible grade and so on)
I had told you more than 1 year ago..
so much for being first american gm
oh well, congrats kitaru
No problem, actually once c_t and I will have enough skill on M roll, you will never reach our MASTER 999 time attack style..
Congratulations. Your work on the invisible roll has paid off, but really your stacking genius and ability to understand the game at a deeper level than Ti players such as myself has allowed you to get such an incredible grade.
I would normally try and do some kind of "huhuhohwoefhawoeufhaweuofh!!!! kevin fuck you all!!!!!!!!" thing, but I think I'm going to let this one rest for right now. I've been playing TAP for about 4 months at a rate of something like 3 hours a day, and if any improvement was going to happen with such obsessive play, it would have happened already. It's time for a break; the stick is 8 way now, and I'm ready for some new games.
So are you going to start playing Ti now? I look forward to your challenge...
