  1. Do you do speedrunning? Otherwise I don't see how this is relevant. :p
  2. What would be relevant is a link to their YouTube channel. It's not anywhere on their profile page either.

  4. 8:30 for the Easter event.

    - I have never done a speedrun before for anything, ever
    - I used a cheaty method (minimap)
    - I have not watched Mirror's speedrun so therefore I don't know the methods to use
    - I had to do the death course twice
    - The time is the timestamp on my music player, so it may not be precise
    Music is Daybreaker's 2907.
    Those all being said, here y'all go.
  5. For what it's worth, I got it down to 7:22. :p

    Audio got claimed by YouTube, so sorry for the silence.

  7. After combining my route with some of waffles: 5:32
  8. Those parkour shortcuts are getting impressive--EMC speedrunners are legit!
  9. Bunny Corp in 5:11, first run where I didn't get lost in the spore maze.

  11. Do you all know Summoning Salt? His videos are very long, but very well-made. He doesn't upload often, but you'll have a big backlog to catch up on if you haven't been following him. In my experience, videos on games you don't know are interesting as well as videos of games you do know.

  12. You already know I gotta bump the speedrunning thread
  13. This year's St. Patrick's Day event was really hard to speedrun!

  14. Nice job Triphora! I'm glad that EMC players are keeping this trend alive! :D
  15. If the rules would require you to start time at the title screen, I highly doubt that it would be allowed to use a modified client that requires less clicks on the title screen. :p

  16. Steampunk Spring Any% in 9:34. Lost a full minute on parkours but wanted to share the route anyways. Shoutout Build Team for adding a reset button!

    (are you sick of pigstep yet?)

    Should a 100% run include all shop items, finding fred, and the purchasable bunny? Any other easter eggs?

  17. You're welcome. ;)

    The only other places i can think of are the mario easter egg room and Cybers' Blue room, but those are pretty well hidden and i don't know if either has been found yet.
  18. I believe you mean the Best Boi...
    But I have not heard of anyone finding him yet...

    He is well hidden this time indeed

  19. My turn for a speedrun on the Steampunk Spring Event.
    Any % in 8:10.
    WARNING: obviously spoilers for the event. Using some quirky mechanics as well, explanation below.

    first, a sprint transfer. While clicking the reset button, I'm already sprinting. This preserves my speed after the reset.

    I then collect the 3 obvious rabbits in town, but then run straight to almost the end of the mines.
    I don't collect any checkpoints along the way since i won't need to.

    I avoid the collapsed bridge in area 2 by fast swimming and holding space in the waterfall to just make it to the other side.

    In area 3 I run straight to Summer and then Willow. The other way around would be faster but I need a way to die and Willow has a lot of mobs to help me do that. When you die, you respawn at the checkpoint of that area regardless of whether you have unlocked it or not. Upon respawning it automatically unlocks checkpoint 3.

    The checkpoints work on a level system. meaning that if someone has area 3 unlocked it bypasses the check for area 1 or 2, so now I can teleport to all 3 areas needed.

    From here it's just a case of teleporting and collecting the remaining rabbits.

    I hope these trick can inspire someone to do a better run. Shorter routes might still be possible, I firmly believe it's possible to get less than 8 mins..

    Did you know that you can collect Clover by just suicide jumping onto her from the bridge? You will die in the process but it'll count. I ended up not using this trick because it's faster to continue on to Anthony from there.

    Thank you to
    -Crystaldragon13: discovered the bridge jump down onto Clover
    -naMrorriM: his speedrun allowed me to scale down Area 2 by jumping onto the big rock.
    -My father: for the background music :p

    Also, shameless self promotion:
    Any speedrunner of this event can win my head if you also post your vid here. https://empireminecraft.com/threads/progryck-head-games-giveaway.86971
  20. I hope the event is still running when I get back from vacation in a few days.
