Time for the second LJ update for 2022 and this one brings with it a new world record. Last time the LJ block record was pushed further was 12 years ago in 2010 by XT| FreestyleR . We are sure this is a jump familiar to almost everyone in the world of KZ. The 258 block has been chased by multiple jumpers during all these years but nobody has succeeded until now.
Lobelia recently entered the top 10 with his 257 LJ, which is an impressive show of skill already, considering how competitive the top 10 is. Recently CS:GO jumpers brought into the world of 1.6 a special technique of moving your mouse called mouseslaps. This technique proved to be incredibly powerful in our longjumping, and it has been used for the new world record as well.
CyniuThunder was contacted in hopes of him being able to deliver his unique touch to the edit of this jump, and that he certainly did. You can find his work along with a compilation from mls at the bottom of this newspost.
With this update we are also announcing changes in the administration. skArp will be taking over the position of head demo admin on XJ starting from today.
Congratulations to the new world record holder!
