    Lightbulb On Your Marks, Get Set, Frost Bow

    Inspired by the DNT and King dungeon/fractal contests this summer, as well as the commonwealth games kicking off today, I thought it might be entertaining to hold an RPS dungeon speedrun competition.

    Rules
    · Each team must have a maximum of one non-RPS member.
    · Run dungeon paths from beginning to end. No restrictions, skip whatever you want to. Ressing allowed – we’re not as hardcore as DNT.
    · Post screenshots showing minimap server clock or /age at start (spawn point before killing anything or selecting path) and end of run to verify path. Yes this isn’t as foolproof as streaming a video, but keeps it simple yet competitive, and Horace will know if you are cheating.
    · 1 point for completing a path. 2 additional points for participating in (joint) fastest time for that path. Bonus points at judges discretion for non meta groups (eg no eles, all bearbows, all conditions), soloing (or 2/3/4 manning) running without armour or anything else humorous.
    · Points are individual - if you participate in a run you get full credit. Up to you if you want to monogamously stick with the same team throughout, or (more likely) change dynamically depending on who is up for a certain run
    · Prizes for top 5 scoring RPS members. As in previous contests this will be a mixture of BL key weapons, rare dyes and minis, crafting mats, and selected choice items (ie junk) out of the guild bank.
    · Contest opens now, closes midnight on 31st October (3 months should be plenty time for even the most casual of us to have a stab at all paths they want and to have cuthroat competition for SE1 and COF1 superiority)
    · Post paths, times and screenshots below. The judges will update the leaderboard.

    Neat!

    Just to add to the rules, perhaps on that said timer screenshot, every party member must be present at the spawn (near the first waypoint), no running ahead.

    Good thinking. It should be at dungeon entrance; first waypoint is not always at the entrance (AC?)

    Good thinking! At the entrance should work for every dungeon.

    Repair anvil's usually at the start, isn't it?

    And for the end of the run, the screenie show show the pop-up with the tokens? Or do you consider the moment the last boss died the end-time?

    that depends if you consider the start after you choose the path or before the first mobs? Which would complicate things for TA since there are several path choices.

    Why not use the path selection as a starting point for the run? That's what by most other speedrunners.

    You have my bow. And my pet. And my general inexperience with efficiency.
    If it's called Vlupius or Vlupia, it's probably me.

    Ok, so path selection except for those paths where this is not at start (AC, COE). For those and stories right at start, all together.
    will miss team Dukevthis week, but next time!

    Well this is odd, I've been preparing for speed running Resident Evil 4 for the last few days, and now you'se want to do it in Guild Wars 2, I'd love to try it too at some point.
