SSX 3 Challenge #5

Time Span: Dec 7th - Dec 21

Hey guys, thanks everyone for participating in the week 4 challenge. Moving forward we will be making some changes to how the challenges will proceed. Last week it was voiced that there wasn’t enough time to complete the challenge to a satisfactory level. As such moving forward each challenge’s time frame will be on a per-challenge bases. Additionally we would like to have the challenges be more fun and interesting (like week 1) as opposed to a straightforward race x track or trick-out x track.

Challenge #5 - Peak 1 Race: Combo Craze

Instructions:
In this challenge riders will race down the peak 1 race event (cleanly) through Conquer the Mountain, however unlike a normal race it will be required after the first jump that you maintain a combo (as long as possible) down the entire peak (through the finish line at metro). Lastly it is required that all submission for this challenge must have video proof to be placed on the leaderboard.

Scoring:
The scoring method for this event is primarily Time however there are a few other factors to consider. Firstly it is allowed to drop your combo, however anyone who completes a run with a lower combo streak will have a higher standing. That is to say if I complete a run with 2 combo streaks in 9:00 but someone else completes it with 1 streak in 10:00 they have a higher standing. Lastly tie-breakers will be settled based the rider who has a higher combo.

Banned: Wormholes, select warps, early exits, phone booths, rail glitch

Allowed: Dropping your combo

There we go! This will my first submission, and also a video people can watch if they don't quite understand what the challenge consists of.

Good luck to everyone, we hope many people will try this! You got bi-weekly this time, so there's plenty of time to get a good run in. ^^

I think this is a good place to introduce my younger brother, Piotr (he likes it pronounced like Peter). You can probably tell that we are related by comparing his MerquryCity name and my Google name. He is very new to SSX; although he has been playing for many years, he always played casually and never went for records like I did, but he did like to watch me fail. :)

Here's my first submission for this challenge!


Also 9EDDY2, you are more than welcome to do the challenge and let us know how you do. The only reason the video requirement exists is for the leader-board, but there is not reason you can't just do the challenge for fun!

What if I lost my combo 3 times, but the third time is literally a few meters before the finish line and I couldn't do any tricks after that anyway?

@ Kubi, we've decided that if you're completely out of the woods and there are no more obstacles, it's ok. That counts. Only after there are no more obstacles though!

Nothing, I crashed because I landed sideways after the ice tunnel.

Ah, I see. We have decided to change the rule about max 3 tries: you can have as many combo streaks as you like now, but of course, the more combo streaks, the less competitive your score is. So the run you have now, if we understand it correctly, you can submit. It will be submitted as a 4-streak run, assuming it is like we are imagining it.

Rith will edit the thread with this rule change after his stream.

Just realized I forgot to post my first score in this thread, well I crashed 5 times in a row in Blue Station and by that point the big boy pants were on, so yeah I'm in the lead now but the ending part of this can be better. No extra music this time, I'll probably add some for the final submission.

Damn, I forgot to post my run and I overwrote it with a new recording which didn't yield much. I think I had a 9:30 with like 8 crashes, pretty terrible. I'll try to find it and upload it if there's a point in doing so.

This is my submission - 9:30 with many, many fails on Metro City (which I am disappointed about). As of writing this, the video is still uploading (< 30% done), but it will upload to the URL specified for the player.



Also, if I'm not wrong, the frame rate went back to what it was last time. Just when I thought I controlled for every variable, something goes wrong. :mad
