  1. If anyone wants to practice this please let me know. I’d love to get it down to 8 minutes or so.
  2. It was not done on Ultima actually, but 1c1 across servers (especially those based on Tethella) are the same. It’s some ancient ass run we did a long time ago. There was no times here, so at the least like I said it could / should serve as a baseline for bare minimum uploads. Especially since it’s a 2P run. You’re not wrong about challenge mode being slightly different / broken on servers. I won’t be very specific, but other stages aren’t proper and certain drops aren’t either.
  3. Sorry for participating. My bad.
  4. Since no one seems to be doing this, here's a time that should serve as a baseline at least.
  5. A link I noticed that's missing that's really good is this. https://www.phantasystaronline.net/forum/index.php?/topic/33082-ultimas-custom-equips/ I'd like to mention that TTF is not always going to be fastest or easiest way to level up. Depending on if you can carry yourself things like MASE4 and PTS are faster to Ultimate than TTF is. Another thing worth noting is that Photon Drops come REALLY easily on Ultima and that conversion is definitely up to the seller / buyer and I as a trader would never recommend letting your DTs go at that low of a rate unless there's a hit event or something. Otherwise you're pretty much getting scammed.
  6. The rules did not change mid event. It was an additional rule added before runs started. Y’all should at least read before posting.
  7. That is indeed a very long post and probably the best one on this thread. If I was going to lock this I already would've y'all are free to destroy this topic as much as y'all want. I suppose I will give a final reply addressing as many of R78s points as possible. I am going to busy for at least the next few months. I only am playing a little bit of PSO at the moment, and have no interest in working with something like this in that time frame. I also wanted to dump all my Ultima items by now as well (in a way I feel/felt was/is worthy). I also was interested in participating in my own event and was trying to but we had issues. I would have dumped the items to the other 3 if we won. I am not interested in a middle ground really. I wanted one (only one set) of players to receive every item of value on my accounts. I view my items as a collection and am not interested in breaking it up in more than 4P and even 4P is already spreading it thin. If y'all feel so strongly about receiving something for the time y'all spent feel free to take the remainder of my DTs. I truly wish this had turned into a true competition because that's what it was intended to be. Never in Ultima has a prize pool so large ever been up for grabs (maybe 2011 65 DT custom items is the only rival) and I wanted to see competition in the hunt for the prize. I am still fairly blown away that not a single other group of 4 was able to submit something as the items are extremely unique and valuable here. Your runs certainly blow all old times out of the water and that in itself is impressive to me, they're clean for the time given and amount practiced. It's no doubt they're done in style I do not value and that's no secret. The quest pool was voted on by the players. I didn't chose it. I included 3 selections of what I felt were easy, medium, and hard quests. The time frame for the event was posted in tandem with the poll so perhaps the voters should have considered the difficulty in relation to the time allowed (I know you didn't vote). This event was supposed to be in my opinion particularly freeing to the players. They could chose the quest, play with any team, and didn't even have to actually have gear because the test server was an option. I know 4P is hard to get and that's why I/we were unable to participate. RoW is probably the hardest quest on PSO and anyone who clears it should feel at least a little happy. The list of players to clear is fairly small in the grand scheme. The rule was there and no one really gripped much about it at the time. I do admit I did not think of the influence the rule would've had on voting if it was there, but I have a slight feeling the outcome would be the same. I waited to add the rule because I had not thought of it until after the initial posting. I know it's not the case but imagine if only one or two teams posted and they just barely cleared each of these quests and all the sudden I reigning a poor set of runs the ultimate prize. That just isn't what this event was intended to be. The desired outcome was at the minimum mildly competitive times and back n forth between teams making improvements. I did think about the minimum waves cleared and enemies killed thing, but there's so many videos of clears of these quests combined with test server that I ultimately decided players SHOULD be finishing these runs. I hadn't thought of this rules impact on votes, and that's definitely a mistake. I do have a feeling that the outcome would still be the same as people seemingly picked the hardest quest line without considering: difficulty, time, or rule-set. So why would they have considered the submission minimum. Additionally most of these voters didn't even participate so they care even less about the rule. I know there were a few people looking to that just couldn't compile a full group, and that blows. I want to give away my entire collection to a group of players that were able to truly compete. Not a subset of items or single items, but the whole thing. I know y'all posted your runs, but no one else did which pretty much just fucks y'all. I didn't and don't feel satisfied giving any number of items unless the conditions were met and the winners were proper. I wouldn't be happy. I doubt there will ever be another TA event here (especially by me). Even with the most absurd of prizes the participation was nearly non-existent. You're right it is supposed to be done when a record is set, but being first on the leaderboard is typically the only reward for setting a record. Chemistry certainly isn't a reward though. The rules indicated from the start that there was a possibility no prizes were given. It's unfortunate that's what happened, but it did. It is supposed to be all or nothing because I do not want to think about my normal mode items any longer. I don't want to just hand them out in conditions I'm not comfortable with and the conditions I was/am comfortable with were laid out from the start. I do not want to split this stuff between an abundance of people because it becomes less and less useful each time you take items for it and it's supposed to be a "full TA set" and even splitting it among 4 players is tough. I don't like 2nd, 3rd, or 4th place because those are all still losing places. I added a 2nd place "prize" just so that I could empty my DTs as well. The value gap is intended. It is true the rule was there from the beginning and like I said I am really surprised no one else tried. 3. is the biggest point I will concede to, but I think the points I made about it are semi-valid. I chose this duration and prize division for my own reasons even if they dumb to others. I will only offer those DTs but they are nothing compared to what was up for grabs. Sorry. Well done on getting into and being the only team to actually submit, and I am sorry that no one else did. At the minimum my team should've put something together. In regards to everyone else that's just shit posting here, I don't really understand well because most of you did not participate and had no problems with the rule set until after the fact. Y'all should've participated because there are enough triforce members to have put together at least 1 or 2 squads. All the sudden the issue is gone and there'd be a proper winner. I am still shocked that none of you were interested in the prize pool. Like I said I will not lock the topic and y'all are free to shit in it all you want, and I really won't be replying after this because like Shiida said this is a pretty ample summary of the issues and my thoughts about them.
  8. Sure I’ll bite one more time. I specifically wanted public results to encourage improvements. I’m not giving participation award I don’t know what to say the 3 submission minimum was added before runs began taking place. Not an unknown caveat added randomly. Another thing to note for bob. I’m not giving away GM items. I was giving away my own hunted or traded items from my real account. I cannot just make up some participation award. The other remark about crediting the others is pedantic as hell. They will all get credit on leaderboards and obviously all took part in the run but I reference Shiida because she is the leader of the team. I won’t reply about this anymore.
  9. I said it at the start about 3 submissions minimum. I don’t know why people are acting as if I suddenly decided to say that after the time was up. It was a known risk and I’m sorry that it happened. I truly thought people would play for a 100h Dark Flow and that just wasn’t the case.
  10. I cannot say for the other voters why they chose that quest line. I personally picked it because they're some of the harder quests for their prospective episodes and I thought watching/playing these runs on Ultima would be fun. There are many videos for this game and even these quests themselves to get an idea what they are. If the players are unwilling to learn the quests they chose that is not my fault. I also didn't want to force PB on these runs because building sucks and not everyone has the SD tools. Additionally PB meta is very different from No-PB and I was more interested in seeing what's possible on the No-PB category because it is harder. 20 PB or less is mostly so you cannot swing TJS as soon as you spawn in and is supposed to limit you from building too much before quest start. The rule should really only be like 4 or less PB. The start and end date of the event are in the main body post. I know ~who was playing the quests(pretty sure just y'all). That's correct I am not giving my gear away in a competition type event with a single submission and I said it in a post that this would need a minimum 3 submissions before I give my gear away. Even though your times are alright it's the idea that just any team could've posted and won the literal best gear on the server. It's enough to fully gear 4 people. I don't think so it was supposed to be hard and competitive. I realize it was not, but not much to do about that. Y'all played, but no one else did and I am sorry about that, but yes the only reward will be on the leaderboards for now.
  11. Faster gif casting would be absolutely insane. None of these items need to be made. There’s hundreds of items on PSO and the nature of DTs enables so many more to be useful. The game does not need anymore new items. If anything some items should be removed.
  12. TP regeneration is a completely worthless aspect. The character neither improves or suffers with or without it. FOmar and FOnewm offer very different play styles and switching units/mags/shields/frames/weapons is a skill that can improve all players play. When to switch to what is just a knowledge based thing and once you learn where to use what you’ll find yourself playing better.
  13. I agree, I’d be VERY surprised to see that no one team is able to complete the quest. It’s challenging but not impossible.
  14. Well... the poll is closed. The only addition to the rules is that the event as whole needs a minimum 3 submissions(shouldn’t be an issue). The quest line chosen was Christmas Fiasco 1, Cals Clock Challenge, and Realms of War. Remember these runs are to be 4P no-pb. Good luck and I hope to see some nice stuff
