    I've been participating in as much record threads as possible and I thought it was time to create one myself. I was actually surprised that there was no thread for this mode yet. But then again there has been a TAP Master BIG MODE record thread available for a while now.

    I shamelessly copied Rosti LFC's TAP Master BIG Mode thread to be honest. Feel free to make suggestions for a better leaderboard format.


    BIG MODE

    To start BIG MODE use the following key combination at the title screen: LLLLDCBA

    Code:

    S6 (75584) - 299 - 2:48:90

    It wouldn't quite be so annoying that half-steps exist if it wasn't for the fact that every damn block spawns in one.

    Just now. Half asleep.

    I took needless risks, was surprised by the speed increase after level 250 and missdroped. Really should have gotten S6. Well I'm getting used to this now... ^^

    Should I add the score and number of bravos too? Also, feel free to play this mode together with 20G or other modes. I will be adding the leaderboards when someone submits a personal record.
     
  5. Re: [TGM1] BIG MODE

    Seeing as score is largely irrelevant and without skill, I'd say that level should be the main thing, followed by time.

    Today's first-try result of the day is S7 at Lv 362 in 3:19.83, died on a misaligned drop.

    My best record ever is:

    Minor improvement but still no higher grade unfortunately and score is a lot lower than my previous best too.



    I've also been playing some BIG MODE 20G and this is my best result so far.

    EDIT:

    Something unbelievable happened just now!



    Nothing special you would say. But the thing is, this is BIG MODE REV!!! WOW am I strange or what (or maybe extremely lucky)?! I think I'll create a new leaderboard seeing as I can't compete in the regular one. LOL!!! ^^

    Time is so slow because I was trying my hardest to get many bravos. I only got 2. [​IMG]

    Re: [TGM1] BIG MODE

    Thanks for your participation! ^^

    I can only get one bravo per game when I'm lucky. And playing slow doesn't seem to work for me.

    This mode is really hard. It seems one needs a lot of luck if you're not extremely skilled. I mean I played 100+ games of BIG MODE and getting S6 was a pain to achieve (most games I get around S3). But on the other hand in BIG MODE REV I managed to get S8 within 20 games or so.

    I might achieve S9 one day, but GM is close to impossible. By the way I've seen BIG MODE 20G GM videos from SAL, but I was wondering if anyone knows of regular BIG MODE GM videos which I would assume is less difficult?

    20G:
    S1, 177, 1:30:33, 1 bravo (a single at the beginning, lol)

    I keep killing myself by getting locked in a half-step, and being caught by surprise by the spawns (I'm used to TAP's big mode movement).

    Re: [TGM1] BIG MODE

    Thanks! This will keep me trying in 20G. ^^

    All bravos I get are after clearing triples with the L or J piece and occasionaly doubles with the T-piece.

    As for half-step misdrops, it happens very rarely now before level 250. And I have yet to play BIG MODE seriously in TAP. I think my best was grade 4 a while ago.

    Improved my 20G grade. Managed to combo my way back down twice when I was about to top out.

    300th post! ^^

    Very nice and thanks for bumping this thread. ^^

    I did try to improve my regular big mode rank during the weekend, but I didn't manage to get higher than S4. Need more people playing this! ;p
     
  16. Re: [TGM1] BIG MODE

    This is what I do when I become mad at myself for misdropping with sonic drop.
    Play a game without it.

    Plus this pulls me out from the bottom of the heap.

    Re: [TGM1] BIG MODE

    Congrats with your S9. It would be awesome if you could get GM! I'll try to close the gap, but first I need to improve my Big Mode S6. ^^

    Another bump while I'm on my TGM1 binge.
