it is our pleasure to feature fykseN in the ROTW series! The beaten map is the stf_creepytemple. Our TOP3 player kindly described his road to success in a paragraph below the video!
The previous demo originates from WR Release #633, five years back in the past. There are only two demos left unbeaten from the legendary release with over 120 comments. Who will take it?
We would also like to encourage anyone who is willing to beautify content of this site, direct his/her effort to improve this game, and has ideas and drive to realize them, to fill up an Application Form. Especially moviemakers and writers are welcome.
RUN OF THE WEEK #204
Time: 01:40.36 (-00:01.01)
Previous holder: LEWLY
WR: WR Release #728
There were many different ways to approach, record and finish stf_creepytemple. In the point of beginning, I already had two amazing demos to watch and learn from. The first one was LEWLY's clean, velvet record. He had a very good idea about the map limits, and he focused himself on the climb and difficult combos. The second one, more obscure and rare demo, was VNS' record from 2013. He had the whole map covered, but decided to take climb parts easier and pushed very hard on the rest of the map with his typical bhops.
As the KZ-random challenge started and this map was chosen, shooting-star advised me to implement his idea of different style, as he couldn't participate twice in a row. The breaking point was the well-known 256 block shortcut in the beginning of the map. Drop standup CJ clearly gives you an advantage, because everyone took the shortcut with a basic CJ before.
My idea was to combine this advantage with the previous runs of LEWLY and VNS.
As always, a new shortcut should be just a beginning of the new series. Hopefully it will drag more attention to this map and someone will show us what the real perfection looks like. That is something I'm looking forward to :).
