GAMES PLAYED:
This rampage focuses on Easter Eggs found in Marble Blast Ultra and Marble Blast Platinum Official & Director's Cut levels only.

DURATION:
Submissions close 31st August 2020, but an extra 14 days of extension can be given only if necessary.

RULES:
All runs must be done on .rrec & on PlatinumQuest Online.
Screenshot glitching or other forms of lagging your game are BANNED. Minimum acceptable FPS is 30 as allowed by PQ's options menu.
Powerup/Gravity/Teleport and other abusable restart glitches are BANNED.
Every other glitch is ALLOWED unless there is widespread agreement in the community. Please discuss before attempting runs using those glitches as they may be banned.

GAME VERSION:
You must play on PlatinumQuest version 2.3.34 or above.
All versions below (2.3.33) are NOT ACCEPTED as the recording file will not sync.

RECORDING:
PlatinumQuest versions 2.3.40 and above AUTOMATICALLY SAVE the recording even if you didn't press the Recording button! It is recommended that you do... but you don't have to.
World Records automatically save their .rrec offline and attempt to send online.

Easter Eggs are Elapsed Time only!
Time Travels do not affect your final time. Easter Eggs only care about your Elapsed Time, that is your actual time without Time Tavels.

KNOWN ISSUES:
DO NOT RESTART UNTIL THE GAME SAVES THE RECORDING. If you get the Easter Egg, then restart the level before the game saves your replay, it will only save your restart! This will cause the game to only play back 1/10th of the new run instead of saving the old run. This will be fixed!
Time Travels break playback, this will be fixed. .rrec files on 2.3.33-40 will not desync.

SUBMITTING RECORDS:
- All records are for THREE decimal places.
- Date of recording is not needed.
- You must submit the way you want to appear in the rampage. Choose one of these three examples:
--> Let's Roll! – 1:23.587 – Matan ‘IsraeliRD’ Weissman
--> Let's Roll! – 1:23.587 – Matan Weissman
--> Let's Roll! – 1:23.587 – IsraeliRD
-> Lack of the above will default to your username only.

Rather than keep in this topic all submitted records, there's a community spreadsheet that is kept at this link (click here).

It'll be interesting to see how different the lineup of participants is for this rampage from all the other ones! I don't plan to participate myself but good luck to everyone who will, or already have, submitted runs!

(Also is the PQ rampage strictly after this one or is it just an ongoing project? Because I can't remember whether or not there's a thread for that. At any rate, even if there is, it probably hasn't been used in months.)

Notice about the bug where restarting causes your rrec to not save properly: going out of bounds will cause a restart and, by extension, this bug. If you go out of bounds on a WR catch, pause the game before restarting for a few seconds and your rrec will still be saved.

PQ in a nutshell
function clientcmd12dothepq() {
    commandToClient(LocalClientConnection, '34onthedancefloor');
}

I believe HiGuy patched only the more relevant bug of time travels and not the restart bug, but it is irrelevant right now for this rampage.

I see we have like 6-7 more levels remaining.

Unless there is something big happening, the current deadline is 30th September 2020 with an allowed extension to 15th October 2020 if someone requires.

If you are done running, please send me all your.rrec files on discord in a single zip format. 7z is better, though.

Hey all,

I'm going to announce a forced extension (for my sanity more than anything else), and push the final date to be 31st October. No submissions are accepted after that day.

I know I haven't been keeping up, but I'm curious—why is this extension happening? For your sanity, which of course is very important, but what caused it?

Need a breather from recording/editing (Xelna's PBs, MBU WRR) and finding soundtracks which is bs. Also need to clean up after the two projects to actually be able to record the eggs hahaha. Having a few weeks cleans my mind, helps me focus on life/work and then come back full power to the next big project.

Also did you see that super fast turnaround on MBU WRR #2? Damn this is unprecedented for me LOL

Yeah I'm actually so impressed with that! That never happens around here haha, great job! Can't wait for tomorrow!

And yeah that's totally fair—take all the time you need for the eggs. I'm just excited for PQ to get underway!

Didn’t really expect to be near my peak egg WR count by the end of the deadline but here we are. I guess yall suck for letting me dominate the egg rampage by a huge margin . Anyway, I’ll basically be commenting on all of my egg WRs and some other things as well, so here we go.

MBU Eggs
First Flight (6.750): Uh… pretty boring and stupid and may be the run which makes xedron stop watching the rampage :P (if that description doesn’t already spoil what it is idk what will). Literally my worst run and path in the entire rampage but hey, gotta save the best for later. Only regret is that it’s my opening run.
Ramp Matrix (3.288): Very clean edge hit and Super Jump ramp matrix, very fitting for the level.
Fork in the Road (3.660): I really don’t know how I was able to keep this uncontested (looking at you [email protected]), but the path is really simple here, no bullshit involved (maybe a bit of precision).
Black Diamond (13.936): Post deadline improvement cus Regi decided he was out this bitch. I woulda got this earlier if I wasn’t being stupid on the teal slope, but nonetheless it’s a very clean run, proud of this time.
Ordeal (4.199): This is very optimized and I’m proud of it, but I can see it going like .02 lower.
Daedalus (5.554): Thx for showing me the path Regi :)
Will o’ Wisp (7.111): The main improvement over MF here is the start. This can easily go sub 7.1 but I didn’t bother with it.

MBP Beginner Eggs
Let’s Roll! (3.686): For me this is one of many definite highlights of the rampage. Regi made an absolutely nutty path and I’m so glad I found it and replicated it.
Training Towers (4.477): New start tweak by Doomblah makes its debut in a WRR here
Flight of the Marble (5.067): Completely unexpected and didn’t even know I found MF’s tweak till I started writing this.
Teleport Training (9.150): Really optimized, like holy crap. I think I added a tweak to this run too. The room for improvement is noticeable in this run, but when I tried my best to beat this, I couldn’t do it within two hours, best I could muster up was a couple of 9.17x’s afterwards.
Busy Bee… (3.566): Same deal as Fork in the Road, idk how I kept this uncontested.
Learn the Wall-Hit (8.983): Bout as clean as a car that just went out of a car wash.
Learn the Random Force (3.025): I’m very curious… did anyone ever figure out what I did here? I feel like it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out. If literally no one has a clue, then I guess you’re in for a treat :).
Ramps (3.395): The tweak I incorporated here is very subtle, but makes all the difference for getting a simple sub 3.5. Very happy with this run.
Learn the Edge Hit (3.587): Nothing’s really changed here from RV’s run, although I have heard some talk of incorporating the new actual WR start for this level into the egg run, who knows if anyone will even try that tho.
Battlecube (3.604): Kinda sad that I didn’t find this tweak sooner, as that woulda put me at 4/4 Battlecube eggs that I helped pathfind for, but its w/e. I will say that the tweak here is cool tbh, neat find on Blasted’s end, and can go 3.5 with better execution.

MBP Intermediate Eggs
Sprint (13.317): This isn’t necessarily a bad run, but it could honestly be so much better. It’s basically a Frostfire tier run (in terms of optimization) so don’t expect anything crazy out of this. I only took it because no one else bothered to do it, but I project this can go sub 11 at best.
Double LoopLoop (11.332): The tweak I came up with here is so fucking satisfying to pull off and sooooo OP. It completely destroys sub 12 and even has potential to go sub 11 too, but sub 11 is gunna be very difficult. I have tried to get it but only barely missed the egg, so I guess the possibility is there.
Powerup Practice (11.974): Cool tweak by MBO, but aiming towards the egg here is the hardest part about this run. The best time that I barely missed the egg at was around 11.924, so it’s very improvable.
Byzantine Helix (4.521): Path is obvious, and my main motivation for taking this back from August was simply because my marble looks very cool in it. While the run looks nice, it’s clear where improvements can be made for a 4.4.
Astroflight (7.011): I use a different tweak than what DK did, and on paper it sounds like it shouldn’t work, but it actually does and its so retarded. This egg is so ass though so that’s why I never bothered with the sub.
Battlecube Revisited (4.891): Completely different path by me from start to egg. It looks better than Vattu’s route too :P. Main motivation for coming up with this was that I really didn’t wanna compete with Blasted in what was an ugly frame war battle.

MBP Advanced Eggs
Pink-Fold Maze (4.206): Neat tweak by August, 4.1 should be doable but hard.
Gap Aimer (8.972): This run is dedicated to Dom.
Orange-Fold Maze (3.931): Very neat path by August. I knew of this route way back when he first landed it almost a year ago, so it was only a matter of time before I took it again.
Crash Course (2.956): Fantastic find by August, although it’s a tad annoying to pull off. Clean run regardless.
Par Pit (4.119): There actually is a sort of consistent strategy to getting a time this low. 4.0x should be possible, but I’m labeling this as August’s tweak since he got a time this low first.
Quaked Path (3.750): I legitimately have no idea how I got a time this low earlier this year. I tried beating it again more recently and I couldn’t even get close.
Frictional Battlecube (4.510): Another new path by me. Not sure if this will be a highlight level or not but all I know is that whoever runs this egg later is gunna hate me for this.

MBP Expert Eggs
Speed Attack (30.050): I definitely would’ve gone for the big sub here if it weren’t for [email protected] taking some of my egg records and if I had more time to do so, but w/e. This route is really ass to pull off, but it looks sick as hell so it could very well be a highlight level of the rampage.
Platform Mayhem (36.302): This is hands down my favorite egg to grind out of all of them. Everything about this feels so good to me and imo it flows really well. I incorporated two tweaks here which saved me a good 3 seconds over Blasted so I’m proud of this one.
Card Daddy’s Card Collection (7.556): I suffered multiple injuries from busting my ass on the spire only to get this insane egg catch. Luckily, I know how to replicate it, so if anyone wants help, hmu :).
Battlecube Finale (3.643): Very sexy path, very proud to have come up with it way back in January. Just fyi, you’re not gunna be expecting what I do here.

MBP DC Eggs
Bent Reality (7.239): Very straight forward path, nothing too special other than tight lines.
Castle Wars (28.942): Cool path that DK found, but its really hard to get the ideal run imo. This can go like a second lower with better execution.
Frictional Climb (6.814): This is just the WRR route repurposed for the egg, nothing too special here.
Learning the Basics (4.553): Doomblah start allows you to cuck Jean in certain frame wars :).
Master the Jump Boost (3.141): One of my last minute egg records, and other than it being jacob’s path, there’s not much to really say about this one.
Ramp Launch (5.618): I honestly think that this run makes the perfect send off for the egg rampage. You’ll see what I mean when you watch it.

Eggs I’m Excited to See
-MBU Scaffold
-MBU King of the Mountain
-Marble Mini Golf
-Roll Like the Wind!
-Downhill Racing
-Skill Zone
-Divergence
-Swivel
-Perilous Road
-Rolling to Eternity
-Stamina
-Recoil Ultra Course (Apparently August didn’t do what I did here??)
-The Time Travel Race
-Sand Storm (how tf do you do this without a trap??)
-Uphill Racing
-Don’t Jump! (I think I’m most excited for this run, as I legitimately have no idea how 8 seconds is possible)
-Catwalks
-TTOTTS
-Ice Diamond

Other Random Things No One Cares About
-My WR count going into the rampage is 40 (31% of all EE WRs), my peak WR count is 43 (33.3%).
-If hypothetically I never lost a single Egg WR ever since I started grinding eggs roughly a year ago, my total WR count would be 82 out of 129 eggs (63.5%). Holding or once held WR on 15/20 MBU eggs, 14/19 MBP Beginner eggs, 15/24 MBP Intermediate eggs, 17/34 MBP Advanced eggs, 11/21 MBP Expert Eggs, and 10/11 MBP DC eggs.
-If you combined the egg WR counts of [email protected], August, and Jean (2nd, 3rd, and 4th in WR count respectively), it would add up to 38, only two away from 40.
-Contributed to 13 eggs in terms of pathfinding (14 if you count Marble Mini Golf Icichole but what [email protected] did wasn’t what I did at all).

Congrats to all the runners that made it in and here’s to hoping that this rampage will be a good one.
