Buenas noches everyone,
The long-awaited results of the LJ poll are finally here! All the necessary preparations for the LJ section update have been completed and we are excited to see demos of the new techniques being pushed to their limits.
So, without further ado, let us turn to the matter in hand.
Longjump Poll Results:
WeirdJump [WJ] - 88.9%
LadderJump [LDJ] - 85.3%
StandUp CountJump [SCJ] - 67.8%
4. Slide LongJump [SLJ] - 61.9%
5. BhopJump [BJ] - 61.6%
These are the five new techniques that will be supported from now on in the longjump section.
On the other hand, here are the rest of the results of the techniques that did not quite make it:
6. WallSlide LongJump [WSLJ] - 37.8%
7. DuckBhop Jump [DBJ] - 36.8%
8. AfterJump [AJ] - 34.5%
9. StandUp AfterJump [SAJ] - 25.4%
Incidentally, it is possible that this is not the be all and end all for the latter part of these techniques, since the way the new LJ maps have been constructed would allow to demo record all of them. There are even a few more that aren't listed here. This means that all of them could be added within the LJ section one day. However, this is just a possibility so it is not guaranteed that it will happen, but stay tuned if you are interested to find out!
Important: In order to properly perform the techniques, the LJ rules section had to be updated with the following rules: (Make sure to read the rest of the LJ records rules here)
The following maps are accepted for official LJ records:
The demo must be compressed with WinRAR. The .rar package must be named "block_technique_playername", using the following abbreviations:
Standup Countjump - scj
Bhopjump - bj
Weirdjump - wj
Ladderjump - ldj
Slide Longjump - slj
You are allowed to submit old wj demos from kzlt_weirdjumps. However, all new wj demos must be recorded on kz_longjumps3. Additionally, ladderjumps and slide longjumps are only allowed on the new maps.
The standard longjump prestrafe is the only allowed prestrafe technique for slide longjumps of any kind. Use of bhops or ducks in order to boost your prestrafe is not allowed.
At a later point, once "kz_longjumparena" by Roadrunner is finished (you can find it here), it will be also accepted for recording longjumps officially. This is the only exception we are willing to make given the results of said thread.
You can download the new LJ maps for the accepted techniques from the links down below:
kz_longjumps3 by Chichin
kz_longjumps3_slides by Qicg
Use the regular demo submission section to upload demos with the new LJ techniques. Also, make sure to pick the correct type of demo which is a "Longjump Record".
Have fun recording,
