VGT Olympics

Postby Tinker on Sat Mar 19, 2016 9:18 pm

We are opening the VGT Olympics! Spring season (unless you're way south, then it's Autumn season).

Rules
Win VGT in a way that complies with one of the sports mentioned below. Post screenshot. If you did any scumming, let us know what was it (just to put the win in perspective - it doesn't detract from its value). Since 90% of the players did Purist with the Rogue and VT with the Vampire, these nominations would be a bit scorned upon. I'll list your build (and your name) in the list for each sport. Previous wins also count as long as you link or post a screenshot (and include a comment on what you scummed for, if anything). Infinimuter and TT infinite piety builds are undoubtedly fun to play, but since they exploit known bugs, their nominations will be - you guessed it - scorned upon. :)

(note: so I went thru all the screens in the thread to look for highest first kill level difference. turns out we only have L+1 cheeky results so far, I guess folks aren't normally eager to sink resources into an L1 kill, plus due to the clogged courtyard, altar scumming pretty much requires you to kill off a bunch of L1s).

I'll re-use an old win as I don't have the time to do a fresh one at the moment. :)
1. Purist (non-Rogue)

Image

I scummed for ~three good items, such as Gloves of Midas and maybe two other useful items such as Venom dagger or Vampire blade. In my winning run I found quite a few good items and glyphs.

@Tinker I see dusty got a pretty decent winning time. Maybe you could add fastest VGT win as a catergory.

Wow, I get a bit of beauty sleep and there's already two Paladins who want to compete! :D Nice! I added them to the lists up there. Since we're talking VGT, other people can also submit the same builds, should they wish to do so.

William wrote:@Tinker I see dusty got a pretty decent winning time. Maybe you could add fastest VGT win as a catergory.

How would I define fast win on VGT? Is it that any win under 30 minutes or 20 minutes or 15 minutes or what? Or just a generic "post your fastest time for VGT" and we rank it? Would that count only within the other sports or outside of it? I mean, I like the idea, I'm just not sure how to do it without diluting the thread a lot... Also I cannot tell what's a fast time and what's not a fast time (for me, any time below 60 minutes looks *way too fast*... :lol:).

@Tinker I consider 15mins fast compared to my times. Maybe people with times below 15 mins can link their times and fastest 3 can be listed. I know a lot of people are super competitive with time runs.

i think that the 15 min time is skewed a lot by paladin of gg with rbs and dragonshield being too overpowerd for vgt.

since i didnt screenshot it the first time i made it, i tried again for:
1. purist (non rugue)
human paladin of glowing guardian
Image
scummed for gg in first tower (obviously), hoping for soulorb (saves resources) and something to bypass horatios resistances (didnt get either), pactmaker by tower 5 is practically a must

Wow this should be an interesting olympics! :D
Time as a category is also a good idea, just list the top 10 (or top 5) best times. Every person can have one entry, which he/she can improve. So right now it would only consist of dustys 15:26 and Williams 46:32, as these were the only posts here. :)

Ok, I had wanted to create something similar to this (since the Tapir and many others have expressed interest in it) but it's good you beat me to it, :)

I ran through some ideas in my head, some are more like "challenges" or "non-conventional" wins and some are like just more for "fun". Listing some I can remember:

1. Paladin of a different kind (simple, you can't use Dracul or GG, any other god is fine).

2. Non-Paladin "Mono-God" (In other words, you can only worship 1 god + PM, and use a class other than Paladin. I guess it should be possible with prepping Patches to strictly use only 1 god and not have to use PM's Body Pact for building resists - but relaxing this condition should make it easier to achieve).

3. Non-[Tinker, Crusader, Wizard, Paladin] Hoarder (Did I miss any other classes that people usually use for Hoarder?).

4. Non-Vampire Faithless (Hah, I think this is impossible, is it not?).

5. Non-[Vampire, Paladin] Warmonger (Maybe it isn't that hard ... I don't know).

6. Battle of the Holy Priest Vs the Undead King (haha, this is more for fun, you know, bringing Pepper to H, turning him Undead before starting to fight him).

7. Purist Vampire (Is this possible?).

8. Cheekiest (Just have to achieve as high level difference as possible for the first kill).


Ok, do take a look and consider some of them, :)

Are you a by-stander, or a contestant? ;) (perhaps olympic committe member... :P )

Ok, I added another sport for the speed-run. Any VGT run can be posted for this category, but I'll only keep top5 scores (1/player)!

I like some of your ideas! I was also going to post a "win without resistances", but that would basically be a Platemail Vampire and lots of scumming.

So most of your suggestions seem more specific, you're right, more like a challenge. I don't want to create 7 extra sports and hope someone posts something in them, but I'm quite fine to open any new sport or just use a general "stunts"/challenge category to capture outstanding achievements (the ones you suggested, or anything else reasonably challenging). As soon as someone posts a win for them, that is! :lol:

I'm especially curious about the non-Vampire Faithless one, I've never thought about it before, I think it may be possible, but I'd have to think about it, how... :lol: Maybe I'll give it a go? :P

I'm hoping to contribute more to this thread in the future in the category of Purist VGT runs (working on Crusader and Monk at the moment), but currently I'll post my contribution for VGT time:

Image

Not the fastest time so far in the thread, but it's by far the fastest I've had in my VGT runs, and the fact that it's Warmonger Parched Priest makes it even more special for me.

Now just gotta have the pieces fall in place for my Purist Crusader run and I'll have my next contribution. It's entirely doable, but I need the right setup and more practice in handling the endurance run that is purist VGT.
