Title: The Easiest A Rank in SA2B
Post by: qubit on September 02, 2004, 07:24:50 PM
What, in your opinion, is the easiest A rank to get in SA2B?  I'll be checking this post often, so hurry up!!!  Reply to this post if you have a different answer.

.....and you didn't add 'other' as an option-why? Anyways, the easiest 'A' rank is 100% Iron Gate 1. For Shadow+Sonic it is City Escape 2, and for Rouge+Knuckles it is... I'd say.....Wild Canyon Chao mission.

Easy things include Cannon's Core 2 (with the warp), Security Hall 3, Route 101 5 (which can't possibly be completed EXCEPT with A rank), Route 280 2 (using that trick), and Mad Space 2.

Oh wait, none of those are options.  Looks like we're doomed.

blueblaze:

thanx.  I apologize for not putting 'other' on the list.  I was just making the poll up at like 11 pm, so I was pretty sleepy.

Another thing: I was the only person who voted!!  I voted Iron Gate 100 rings, but decided that Dry Lagoon Chao was easier after I already voted.

One last thing: did you not read my description?  "Reply to this poll if you have another option."  Good going on reading it, but don't bring complaints.  PLEASE!!  I have enough low self-esteem as it is  :o

Chao,

theenglishman

p.s. One thing, I suck at this game and I'm stuck on Crazy Gadget (raucous laughter ensues from blueblaze's mouth).  You know when Eggman says, "Well done Sonic, but you'll never leave this room alive!! Mwahahahaaa!"  can you give me a suggestion or two?

p.p.s.  Kart racing times on tsc, yes or no?

Thank you, SM, for your options.  I was quite limited by the 10-Option Poll, so unfortunately we are all screwed.  I've never played Cannon's Core, never tried, never even got that far (hilarious laughter from Cybrax or some other grandmaster).  In fact, I'm stuck at Crazy Gadget (more laughter).  Thanks again for the reply.

In the drop-down submission menu, instead of Times, choose Races.  Poof, kart times on TSC.  Just like you asked.

I still don't know the trick for CC2. Or for Route 280 rings.  :(

But Wild Canyon Chao... that's just easy-pwn.

Easiest for me was Death Chamber Mission 1, first level I A'ed.

Oh, SadisticMystic, one thing.  SuperSonic101 once told me that if you die, the most you can get on that level is Rank B, yet I saw the Iron Gate 3 video, he died, and got an A!  I'm confused.  Help?  Anyone???

I know this is a late reply, but whatev.  Anyway, any goal mission A is easy, just get a huge amount of points.  For Knux-Rouge, hands-down Dry Lagoon Chao, tails-egg, Iron Gate 2 (Mission Street 2 is so annoying, only 99 rings!!!), sonic-shadow...tie between Green Forest 2 and White Jungle 2 (got them both first try).

Chao,

p.s. I have a picture (it's just an English flag) that I uploaded as my photo.  Why isn't it showing?

p.p.s. How did you get that Beginner kart time????????????? (faints in awe)

Post by: SadisticMystic on September 05, 2004, 10:01:54 AM
Death never explicitly precludes an A.  Iron Gate 3 is time-based only, and taking a fall doesn't hurt the clock much if at all.

There are some levels like Prison Lane, where if you die after hitting a checkpoint, you'll have to go Restart or else there aren't enough points between checkpoint and finish to get A, but there are still other cases like Security Hall: you can get two emeralds and die, but even just the third is enough points for an A.

"p.p.s. How did you get that Beginner kart time????????????? (faints in awe)"

First of all you gotta beat the game (*laughs*(jk)) , Im guessing you dont know about the upgraded karts, after you get all A ranks for a certain character you get a better kart for them, im guessing they got the beginner time with shadows upgraded kart.

Yep. Hybrid cars are god in Kart race. Period. Anyway, Crazy Gadget is fairly easy if you have mastered the fundamentals, like homing attacking, Spindash jump, etc. The first time you play it, it is expected to get a D,C, or (if you're lucky, like I was) a B. Later on, though, it becomes a cinch as you learn the gravity switches, and how you can skip going sideways in a certain room. Hard mode, just play through without dieing,  100 rings should be no problem, mission 3, the chao is in the gravity room near the missile activation switch (I think, I haven't played it for about a year), and the time limit is a joke. And btw, all A ranks is incredibly easy after a little practice. If you were like me, you just wanted to complete the missions, regardless of whether you got an A rank or not, and it became easy on the second time through. Now I'm going to finish up all A ranks on Sonic Heroes....I'm only 8 away now :D

Hidden Base mission 1 is by far the easiest in my opinion. On speedruns I get A's for god's sake.

Another thing, I never said it was impossible to get an A rank after dying. I have no clue where you're getting this from, Noah, but I never said it.

Out of what's there, i gotta say Iron Gate, 100 Rings mission. Damn, that was easy, a simple run.

By far, the easiest A rank (for me)
is Wild Canyon Mission 3.

Fourteen-year thread necromancy.

This has got to be a record of some kind.

Might as well take advantage of the necromancy. City Escape and Metal Harbor 100 rings were pretty easy for me. I'd have to say City Escape because Metal Harbor requires the Light Speed Dash shoes (which you get in the stage) to get eings early on. Not having the treasure scope for Dry Lagoon Mission 5, I had to get it which isn't hard, but requires going to a totally different stage. I'd have to say that Wild Canyon Mission 1 was really easy for Knuckles/Rouge. This was because the layout was pretty obvious and getting emeralds fast without monitors was easy. For everybody, a lot of the timed missions on earlier stages were easy.
Anyways, I included having to get power-ups for my list. Without power-ups included, I'd say Metal Harbor 100 rings and Wild Canyon Mission 1. With getting power-ups included, I'd say City Escape 100 rings and Wild Canyon Mission 1.
Also, I don't remember doing Tails/Eggman much when I last played this game, so I don't know for them.
