Hello XJ,

we have some big news to share.

Recently, the impossible became a reality. Once again the limits are pushed even farther. The notoriously-well known fu_extreme got finally beaten. The conqueror is nobody other than Country: Czech Republic shooting-star. It is great pleasure to present the marvellous teaser of an upcoming clip made by a talented moviemaker Country: Czech Republic blackelf!

As a bonus, here is Country: Czech Republic PU9maker's speech, who is the right guy to describe the path to success.
I remember when Country: Czech Republic shooting-star played this map for the very first time and he told me something like.. this is lunatic..this map is impossible to finish without checkpoints.. I dont understand why they accepted it. And actually he was right for many years. About a year ago my friend Country: Belarus throttle decided to give it a (cz) "shoot" :) and tried to prove that anything is possible. And he was very close to beat this monster. I was spectating him at the time. It was a great privilege to be a part of writing history on Country: Belarus throttles LAN server. When he did the first block part, we both were stunned. He even had to take a 5 mins break before he started trying second block. Some minutes later but also very close to a deadly fail he did the second block too... it was absolutely fascinating but then after a few tries on the final block a tragedy happened. He failed.. and after that fail Country: Belarus throttle decided to give up. Admins even decided to remove this map from the maplist because no one was able to record it. No one until now. Some weeks ago I saw Country: Czech Republic shooting-star playing fu_extreme and I told him.. I believe you are the one who can beat this map and in my opinion he thought the same. We both knew there is a hope. And if there is a hope there is also a chance. So he started learning every single jump basically from scratch. He was analyzing every single fail until he figured out the problem. Imagine how stressful and demotivating it is if you fail over and over again and the finish button is so far far away. I was supporting him as much as I could and I think it was important for him. And eventually he made the first block, the second but the third one.. oh man.. it was unbelievable.. it took him 47, ye thats right 47 tries on the final 236 bhop before he finally landed it. Everytime when he was up there, praying for a good PreStrafe he called me and we talked on the phone about it. It was torture for both of us but then impossible became a reality. Remember this date: The 19th November 2017.It is a milestone in KZ history.
And the man behind this miracle is the one and only Country: Czech Republic shooting-star. Congratulations my friend.

PU9maker


Stay tuned!

  • I'm sorry glad this story had a happy ending. There's so much effort behind this.

    Well done shooting-star, I'm happy that you finally did it, probably the biggest achievement in KZ's history.

    There's so much I could tell, but you already know the measure of what you've done.

    Congratulations!

  • this proves that

    time > skill

    good job ss i guess

User Avatar
  • this map is actually purely based on skill and you need to work with single jump for a long time to figure out how to overcome it without failing. there's no need to be salty here, the history was written and those thousands of hours ss spent on kz are already converted into his skillset.

    btw, I'm responding you because I know he won't.

  • well, yes. I hardly ever played this map but i can tell it isnt that hard (keep reading).

    The difficulty of an extreme map can be measured in 2 ways: a) how random the jumps are (prestrafe, angle, etc) and b) how you are punished if you fail. Unfortunately, there isnt a number based on a calculation to detrmine how hard a map is, but looking back to kz history, we somehow can imagine what is beatable (no cp) and what is not.

    For example: take that cosy map in which you have to do 5 270 blocks to finish. If i remember correctly, WR is about 5 min. Each time you fail, you get teleported to the block you failed. For a fact, we know that we are capable of doing up to 273 block (possibly 274) and only by the DCJ or MCJ technique.
    Make one map with 5 273 blocks, and someone someday will be able to finish it, because it’s possible (can’t imagine how long itd take). Now, change the teleports to spawn you back to the start and you have a theorically possible, yet impossible map.

    The thing with fu extreme is that it’s risk level if you fail is quite high. Most of the jumps are learn-able and skill based (I’m not saying they are easy). But there are quite a few death spots that raise the overall difficulty to somewhat almost impossible (taking into account my made up 273x5 map). If you mix all of that you have a guy that learnt all the jumps and left to chance the most random jumps (drop sbj, 234, end’s 236, and some others)

    Don’t get me wrong, the fact that he beat it is insane, and I’m sure he spent a lot of effort doing it, and I congratulate him. But by reading that he failed the last jump 47 times, we can agree it was just a matter of time before he beat it, just as all the WRs that exist. Again, time is above skill BUT skill will always make your recording session shorter and more pleasant.

    I wish I knew where to put the barrier to determine if a map is possible or not, because doing X amount of 273 blocks in a row doesnt seem like a reasonable measure (although it was only an example, maps almost never have flat surfaces and there is an infinite amount of ways you can build a map). We can agree that the most difficult map to be done without CPs is fu_extreme, until another map harder than it gets beaten (illumina and those maps)

    I get mad at shooting star because he grinds maps a lot, and yet not always delivers a smooth, enjoyable run. But on the other side, there are some of his WRs I like A LOT and watch from time to time.

    Again, good job dude

  • seems like there is showpre turned on, so it won't be official wr, will it?

Default XJ Avatar
  • that pre shows only on the last bhop, and it's clearly added just for effect by blackelf

  • yeah, I see now, it's not a hud message. Good news then :)

  • there was also 13:37 time message, it's easy to find

  • And yet I just hope that shooting-star doesn't feel that all the time spent was not worth it. Like I did back in the day, almost 2 years ago, after a solid 50 hours of playtime on it.

    Stunning achievement.

    Couple of days ago I thought about spending some time on it, interesting how such news did not dissolve this idea. The map itself isn't rewarding with lots of esthetics and atmosphere, but it always will be truly an emotional endurance test.

  • I remember shooting-star from the time when I was most active in this community in 2012-2013. Back then, he used to have just a few wrs and I never thought that he would reach the level he is right now. I am not into how it is in the xtreme-jumps scene nowadays, but still had a look at that map in youtube and it looks really hard... so congratulations and keep it up, mate!

  • woah, congratulations! impossible but very hard

    Now its time for you to improve the record :D

  • Tomorrow he'll get it under 5 :D

  • This map is not about so much skill to be honest.Ive never been good at longjumping and my strafes were not the best at all.Its about technique and geeking how to do every jump.When the map was released the first time i finished it was like 70 minutes with 1 bilion checkpoints, but with every run u keep dropping the time and doing it faster and faster bcs u understand how to do the jumps.There are 4-5 tricky jumps on this map that i can qualify as annoyng but not that hard..My record on this map became like 3 minutes with not that much /tp.I was sure that its possible to get beaten without /cp, just we needed someone with nerves, and SS prove it. GJ, the map will be beaten in the future for sure.And no, im not saying the map is easy, but the map is not HARD, its just tricky, neither of the jumps is that hard.

  • Man o man!that's really an extreme map..I tried to finish this map with GC since I saw so many players finishing with gc.. So I thought it'll be easy with GC..but when I tried I can't even complete the first block :p..what was I thinking(its not my cup of tea)..but really I thought no one could finish this map without GC its impossible..but who knows :)..everything is possible.shooting-star just nailed it..I can't just described..how does he finished it.damn..there's alot of effort behind it not only for SS but all the players who tried to finished it and helped other players by guiding them the every trick and technique to do the jumps..so,all the players deserve respect..and this is a milestone in kz
