Race Rules (This Is The Race Post)

Round One will last 3 weeks (until Feb. 3) and consists of killing eight defenseless robots. No restrictions, lay a savestate at the menu screen if you want to keep your e-tanks, passwords don't do that in this game. It'll depend on how many people race (I expect lower turnouts than prior games based on what a lot of people are saying), but let's estimate the top 25%, or whatever nearby number I can make evenly fit a multiplier of 4, will move on to...

Round Two will last (probably) three weeks (until Feb. 24) and involves blowing up castles and menacing old men. God, Megaman is such an asshole. No restrictions, top four times move on to...

Round Three which will have a week or two to be run depending on schedules, and involves playing the full game with one restriction*: You have to kill either Flame Man or Plant Man first thing for an adapter, and use either one at all times from then on out. Effectively you are locking yourself into a limited moveset that has a lot of wiggle room in short-circuiting each stage. Knowing all the hidden passages is gonna become key on this run.

* Restriction subject to change depending on how badly test runs go down.

^This is a race post.

You want to take on the sport of kings? Get some bros together and record a superfight. 4 players go in, 32 dead robots later they leave. Best 12-ish 16 advance to round 2.

31 People have already partaken. Their efforts are being hunted down, salvaged, and reforged as we speak. More are always welcome.

If you arrived here from the turn of last century and moving pictures confuse and terrify you, some nice folks in a skype lobby will be happy to assist you. Provide a skype ID in the thread and someone will usher you into the ball pit.

In light of the situation, round 1 will close Whenever the fuck I feel like it.  Sunday, Feb 26. Try it, it's fun. GET IN THERE  Ronud 1 over. Round 2 Go.
