In the game world, there are still many extreme customs clearance challenges like this, and there are endless tricks. Here are a few representative extreme customs gameplays to briefly introduce, and talk about the reasons and meanings of people tossing themselves to achieve them.

2. Any% RTA: Clear the level with unlimited play

This is to mention the common gameplay in the fastest clearance-Any% RTA.

Any% means unlimited play (the word Any itself means “any”). Players can use all the content provided by the game, even the bugs that come with the game, to achieve the fastest clearance, but they cannot use plug-ins and modifiers. This not only requires players to have superb game operation skills, but also requires a deep understanding of game bugs.

3. Low% RTA: Clearance with the lowest degree of completion

If Any% is an unlimited operation to achieve the shortest time clearance challenge, then the Low% gameplay, as the name suggests, is to complete the clearance with the minimum progress of the game. At this time, the protagonist is usually in the lowest configuration state.

In a breakthrough game, with the development of the plot, our protagonist will upgrade and gain the ability to double jump, sprint, fly and climb walls, and may get more powerful props, armors and weapons. If we all Not at all?

This is the essence of the Low% challenge. The lower the level, the better. You must not take what you can not take, and challenge the strongest enemy with the weakest self.

As a kind of Roguelike game, the mobile game “Vitality Knight” has a rich weapon and skill system. Different weapons and skill combinations can play a 1 + 1 >2 effect. In the case of an excellent match in the late game, like the picture below It is not impossible to kill the BOSS by dense barrage.

But if I abandon any props, then I only have a hand knife with an attack power of 3-5 damage and a very short attack range. In the case of running out of ammunition and food and only hand knives, giving up and reopening is usually the best option.

▲ The hand knife without special effects is too weak

However, some “hand-knife bosses” are invincible. They used pile hand speed and two-finger and three-finger skills to forcibly pile weak hand knives into dragon-slaying knives. Among the electric light and flint , the BOSS was instantly killed.

Low% The hardest part is not to pick BOSS naked, but to functional obstacles.

Some maps cannot pass without getting a sprint or double jump, and they don’t even have the qualifications to challenge the BOSS. At this time, you need to use other skills to get around.

For example, in the green path map of the game “Hollow Knight”, players entering this area can use the mechanism of down-slash rebound to replace the originally necessary double jump.

4. Blindfolded: Clear the level blindfolded

There is nothing more outrageous than blindfolded customs clearance. If the previous customs clearance is a test of human operation limits, then blindfolded customs clearance is a test of the memory limit of game players.

The essence of blindfolded customs clearance lies in the back panel, which means back to the map, back to the process, back to the BOSS attack mode.

Isn’t it just 4,500 repeated challenges? Playing games can also have the Olympic spirit.

Even if it is not blindfolded, the backboard often appears in various game skills. The most easily reflected backboard is the turn-based game. It is known that the BOSS will crit once after three normal attacks, so the player will start to eat at the beginning of the fourth round. Medicine or strengthening defense is the simplest backplane.

Advanced backboard skills appear in various rhythm games and audio games. The reaction operation of the audio game determines the lower limit, but the backboard determines the upper limit of the game.

The difficulty of many audio games, the density of the barrage and the speed of falling have far exceeded the reaction speed of ordinary humans, and only relying on the reaction can not completely keep up with the chart. At this time, the backboard and muscle memory become the key to the full combo. .

The blindfolded sound game that originally thought that the chart and route were fixed is already the pinnacle of the backboard, but another kind of backboard is even more jaw-dropping, that is, the action game blindfolded clearance.

Not only need to memorize the map and process, but even the BOSS’s attack mode must be understood. The difficulty is that if you deviate a bit, you may go to the wrong position or fail to hit people.

Because the BOSS’s attack mode has a certain degree of randomness, it is impossible to defend or dodge in real time when being attacked. At this time, the ability of listening to prediction and guidance comes into play. The main Bilibili up “Just Blind” shared his 104-second video of winning the “Wolf” BOSS blindfolded and unharmed.

In addition, he also selflessly dedicated his blindfolded boss killing experience in the comment area, and he can see that he really wants to teach us.

It only took one and a half minutes to kill the boss blindfolded, and it took such a huge amount of work. And the blindfolded clearance of some players can no longer be described in words:

  • Player Crescendo cleared “Super Mario” blindfolded in 11 minutes and 55 seconds, breaking the world record;
  • Player Romscout cleared the “Castlesia under the Moon” in 1 hour and 15 minutes blindfolded;
  • Player Bubzia used 2 hours and 53 minutes to pass the A ending of “Neal: Automata” blindfolded;
  • Player Katun24 cleared “Super Mario Odyssey” blindfolded in 5 hours and 24 minutes;

5. What is the significance of extreme customs clearance?

It is difficult to explain the meaning of such a “journey of crucifixion”. According to the words of the “game fundamentalists”, games are supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable. Playing games as a kind of torture is simply unreasonable.

It’s just that everyone has their own unique understanding of the game, which also affects their own game preferences. If there are players who like relaxed and casual games, there must be players who like difficult games. The latter will always fail and fight forever. Don’t give up.

When they found that the highest difficulty in the game could no longer satisfy them, a variety of fancy ways appeared, such as the final BOSS with an egg in the picture below.

Isn’t it just 4,500 repeated challenges? Playing games can also have the Olympic spirit.

From being killed by the boss for the first time, to gradually becoming familiar with the BOSS’s moves, to defeating the boss at the end, this is the process of most action games. The extreme players use the rules of the game and even use bugs to complete various impossible tasks.

Starting from the harmless BOSS, to the speed pass game, to the end with a variety of strange postures to pass the level. At this moment, they have become the most familiar with the game in the world.

One minute on stage, ten years of work off stage. Whether it is Any% RTA, Low% RTA or Blindfolded, players can not do without hundreds of attempts, spending a lot of time familiarizing the mechanism and practicing operations, the process is lengthy and boring. Even if the goal is achieved, there is no reward.

Isn’t it just 4,500 repeated challenges? Playing games can also have the Olympic spirit.

But it is precisely these day-to-day research and hard work, the great satisfaction that bursts out after reaching the goal, which many ordinary players can’t realize.

People have enough things to deal with in their daily lives. It is a rare thing to be able to find their likes and interests, set a goal and work hard for it.

When they achieve these goals, they have achieved the highest point in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs-the need for self-realization, not for anything else, but for self-transcendence. From this perspective, extreme customs clearance is of great significance to them.

Isn’t it just 4,500 repeated challenges? Playing games can also have the Olympic spirit.

Furthermore, just as athletes work hard for a 0.01 second surpass, the fault tolerance rate of these people’s extreme operations can often only be calculated in frames, which also allows us to see what a person’s reaction, memory, operation and prediction can go to. Degree, which is of great significance for exploring the limits of mankind.

In the end, completing extreme levels is not an achievement of one person, but the result of the joint efforts of thousands of players.

They share with each other the most excellent way line and the best play, a game where the united explore the limits, will pioneer the latest selflessly share their feelings and experiences to help newcomers together to achieve “faster, Taller and stronger.”

Isn’t it just 4,500 repeated challenges? Playing games can also have the Olympic spirit.

On July 20, 2021, the International Olympic Committee will formally join the Olympic motto “More Unity”. There is no doubt that “faster, higher, stronger-more united” is not only the goal pursued by the Olympic athletes, but also the embodiment of the gaming spirit of this group of extreme players.
