[CONCLUDED] [EVENT] Yet another Abyss Speedrun Competition

Post by Korr'Tanas »

Welcome to Yet Another Abyssal Speedrun Competition!


Image


This was inspired by Chris's speedrun competion that just finished the other day.

This competition will focus on T1 Abyssals only, but we will have several categories. Which are:

Fastest Newbro
Anyone who has no higher title than freshman and has spent less than 6 months in the Uni can qualify for this (including anyone without a title, vanity titles do not count).
Alternatively any character that is less than 6 months old can qualify for this category as well, regardless of titles.
You can use any ship of your choice.
The winner in this category will get any faction frigate of their choice*.

Fastest Frigate
You can use any frigate sized ship you want to qualify for this.
The winner in this category will get any faction or T2 frigate of their choice*.

Fastest Destroyer
You can use any destroyer sized ship you want to qualify for this.
The winner in this category will get any faction or T2 destroyer of their choice*.

Fastest Cruiser
You can use any cruiser sized ship you want to qualify for this.
The winner in this category will get any faction or T2 cruiser of their choice*.

Bonus Category: Fastest Standard Cruiser
You can use any standard cruiser to qualify for this (any ship that is listed under Ships/Cruisers/Standard Cruisers in the ingame market).
The winner in this category will win a Sacrilege (sponsored by Turlough Dominian).

Fastest Gun in the Abyss
The main category. You can use any ship you want. Whoever gets the fastest run in any ship wins.
The winner in this category will get any faction, T2 or T3 frigate, destroyer or cruiser of their choice*.




*Special edition ships are excluded from the prizepool. Sorry, no Gold Magnates for anyone. ;)
I reserve the right to add more categories/prizes before the event is over. 8)

Rules
Any participant can only win in one category, if anyone is fastest in multiple categories, they will win in their top category (bonus category is exempted from this rule).
In order to qualify you need to meet the requirements of any category above as well as:
- Only solo runs
- Only T1 aka calm abyssal
- Destroy and loot all 3 Bioadaptive Caches
- Destroy all NPCs in the last room
- Be within 1km of the Origin Conduit
- Your name is not Korr'Tanas

(in case I forgot something obvious here common sense applies)


Submissions
Submissions will be accepted preferably in the form of videos, but screenshots are aceptable as well. Either way the time counts when all the requirements mentioned above are fulfilled and the Abyss timer is visible (by hovering your mouse over it) in the video or screenshot.

Only submissions posted in this forum thread count.
Please state what ship you were using and your runtime along with a link to the video or screenshot. And let me know if you would potentially qualify for the Fastest Newbro category as well just so I don't miss that.

Submissions will be accepted until the end of June. So until 23:59 eve time on Sunday, June 30th.

Good Luck everyone!

Once again, one single T1 run. Grabbed an old Gurista Event ship which has been collecting dust since 2021 ;)
No retries, no drugs, no refits, no idea what to expect. Should be very easy to beat.

T1 calm exotic, 07m04s, Bifrost

After a couple of slower tries I got a faster one, I really want to go sub 4 but for now 4:06 is my personal best.

Both AMD and nVidia have recording software built into their driver software suite. And those are super efficcient, they should have no noticeable impact on your game performance.
That being said, screenshots are acceptable of course. :)

Hello!

I got 2:52, in my Cerberus - T4 fit with slight changes (MWD + RCU to fit it), with Crash booster. Took me few runs to get it, but there's not much time to gain more - probably 2:30 with bestest of spawns. I also got 2:40 where I lost footage and 2:45 where I missed one can :D

Best,

Chris

Added a new category for fastest standard cruiser. I wonder if a T1 logi would be good for this? 8)
