Competition Central / Re: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal Boards?
« Last post by Zurggriff on March 12, 2019, 06:26:31 PM »
Over 4 years after the release and the game does not have charts and only two forum posts from long ago. Just in case there is interest in this game and users that may provide feedback, here are a couple thoughts for putting up charts.

1) Should items be prohibited or put on separate charts from no items?
The Ring Attractor and Shield Award make ring collection a little easier and the Mega Sprint enables the player to sprint through enemies. The Mega Grapple allows the player to instantly destroy an enemy after grappling off its shield. Most of the items can be used at some point through a playthrough and they would make for faster times. I do not think they have a big impact on how the game is run either. Charts will allow items unless there is a demand otherwise.

2) How should charts be categorized?
There are a number of existing categories that track time (Times, Extra, Races, Bosses) as well as the ability to create new categories. The game has one boss battle, not really worth its own category. I did not see another game that used Races with those like in this game. All of the levels could be put under Times with different Divisions distinguishing the various types of levels.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is a similar style game also lacking charts. The first point is not applicable but the second point is with a wider variety of timed levels (tunnels, submarines, boats, races, and 4 bosses), most of which have rings to collect as well.

The rules have been updated, prohibiting the use of slot machines for ring and score stats on Stage 13 Casino Forest. Players with stats that do not adhere to this rule may change their stat to one that does. Otherwise, they will be removed shortly.

I was really hoping you would be cooperative here. Some people would have left this as a ban and forget about it. That is a much easier choice to make than what work I have put in to justify removing the ban.

"I can provide picture proof if you wish." is the comment for a lot of your recent submissions so I am surprised to see that this is a problem. I appreciated the video of the World Map that you supplied. It did not match the most of the old stats and a reason why they would not have been saved was given, but it also did not match a few of the new stats or were missing stats. The request for picture proof was intended to fill in these gaps and resolve some discrepancies. Also keep in mind the proof is not just for me, it is for the community which lost trust in your stats. If I am correct with my expectations, there really should be nothing left after the pictures.

Honestly just forget it. I would like to request for all off my stats to be removed please. You have been messing me about for to long, you asked for a video showing my times and scores on the world map so I did that and still that full on proof is not good enough. I have got time to go through my 3000 photos that I have saved on my Google photos just to prove a couple of records to one person. So yeah, eather just delete all of my stats or change them to what you saw in the video of proof that you requested from me.

Sorry for the wait but these things take time. No decision had been made, otherwise I would have stated that here. The time elapsed between my post and yours was two days, which is a bit short for something like this, but that is just my opinion. With that out of the way, I just need to clear up one more thing and this case should be wrapped up and we can move on with our lives.

I do not want to set a precedence where picture proof is acceptable in cases like this but this request should serve a special purpose. Please provide picture proof for the following Sonic Unleashed 360-PS3 stats:
Times
Cool Edge 1 Day
Dragon Road 1 Day
Rooftop Run 2 Day
Rooftop Run 3 Day
Skyscraper Scamper 1 Night
Jungle Joyride 2 Night
Eggmanland

Scores
Arid Sands 2 Day
Jungle Joyride 2 Day
Tornado Defense 2 Day
Eggmanland

Bosses
Egg Devil Ray
Dark Guardian
Egg Lancer
Egg Dragoon
Dark Gaia

I realize that the comment for Times Cool Edge 1 Day did not specify picture proof available so this is optional (recommended) if you have it. The rest should be unnecessary.

In every level with a slot machine ever hosted on TSC, both scores and ring charts were completely disabled. What makes casino forest a special exception?
Except for Casino Night in Sonic 2 2013.

In my opinion, no charts is the worst option, especially for the score charts where records would not bottleneck at a tie like ring stats. Both, charts without slots or with slots make competition in some form or another possible. There are plenty of other levels where players do not have much difficulty in tying the record. This is not a compelling reason to omit these charts.

Casino Forest is a special exception because I was not around when other slot machine levels were not permitted and could not voice my opinion to include those levels. I plan to set this precedent moving forward. I have also seen requests pop up, buried in the history of the forums, to add casino level ring and score charts for various games.

P.S. I know this is nitpicking but Sonic 2 2013 has casino level charts for rings and scores.

I would prefer banning slot machines all together rather than allowing one use per machine. Limit to one use would be a better alternative to no limit and the randomness it introduces would add to the challenge of getting the highest ring/score total. There are 3 slot machines, as far as I found, and the highest payout is 150 rings, making 549 rings the lowest amount needed from the rest of the level. I was able to exceed this value by a small amount on a run that could have collected a few more rings. I expect that collecting as many rings as possible near the end of the level would be very difficult; a task which would become unnecessary with 3 jackpots or possibly smaller payouts.

I'd say that this would be one where recording is definitely needed.
Also, I wouldn't necessarily say to ban the machines altogether, but at least I would keep it to "you can only use a each slot machine once."
*Shudders at the thought of adding RNG to RA in Stage 13*

No, don’t even suggest making this stage another Sonic Rush style grind. I’ve broken thousands of random ring boxes in my career. THOUSANDS.
