Great videos, Alhazard. I really prefer Sigma's Fiend Ryu to Black's. a few ETs and the fight is done. No need to farm him for UTs.

Also, Having a save statue in the zombie gauntlet is awesome in a karma run. You don't dread doing that gauntlet because you get to save going down and going up from it.

Keep it up. :thumb:

Thank you. A quick update

I was seriously tearing my hair out at the hydracubus gauntlet because I absolutely could not kill the boss in 2 cycles until I realized that I had the armlet of potency on...

lvl3 lunar at AC was a huge failure. Back to Dabi...

In the end, I used the lvl3 lunar and GB to get 50 UTs at the AC. I could not find a way to make the time limit. I tried with Dabi but its very hard to even survive AC with it. Tomii is an excellent player, and I have a lot of respect for even getting 50 UT with Dabi at AC. The Alma fight more than made up for this though.

EDIT: The problem with AC is that there are 60 cats and 60 ninjas! If it was evenly spread as 80 cats and 40 ninjas like NGB, it would be definitely possible to make the time limit, but oh well.

Final Chapter 9 Score: 2,219,330. This was a very important chapter since I theorized that I can get a lot of points here that Tomii missed and I did prove it.

EDIT2: Redid the Alma fight and got several hundred more points so the final score is now 2,220,080.

Chapter 10 finished and uploaded. I know the 2nd and 4th fight of the chapter are not optimal but I took what I could get, and it was very hard to get those scores. Also took me 2 days to realize that farming dynamo for UTs were useless...

I hate that Dynamo fight. Way more annoying than the one in Ch 3.

OK I finished chapter 12 and uploading the 2nd part which should be up in about 100min. I will admit that I used a controversial tactic on the challenges, but after a long thought, I decided that it is fair game since there is only 3 fights where this is even viable. In addition, score is score and I am still confined to the how the scoring is officially calculated w/o using cheats or hacks. If you want to discuss it, I will listen. On the other hand, if you do agree maybe reply the part 2 vid with "#Hayashifail" hahaha.

Farming combo points after the time limit ended on both challenges:
Peristyle with chucks: 4K (In hindsight I should have used VF f+SSSSSS for more points)
Pill bugs with shurikens: 10K!!!

When I realized the implications of this, I seriously thought about quitting this run in disgust, but decided to finish it after long thought. I am virtually guaranteed to get 26mil if I finish this run (maybe 26.1mil), and this is still valid because I am still playing by the game's internal rules. If they actually put in thoughtful time limits in NGS this would not be viable so this is my way of protesting this change, even if the devs don't care anymore.

I will definitely farm wasp fiend challenge on chp 16 with shurikens again. There are 2 other battles where this is viable. The obvious one is the archive challenge at chp 9. Now I did not have time because I spent a fair amount on the 1st part of the chapter farming essence from the wisps so I can get the UF for the berserker fight in chapter 10, but I think you can do without UF in chapter 10. Other options are to try to use smoke bombs to get 2 UTs with Dabi in that fight or farm essence from the 3 soldier fight outside the military gate and even do that fight at chp 11. If you dont farm wisps in chp 9, you should have enough time to farm RSNs with shurikens after getting 50 UTs. I will not reveal the 2nd fight where this might be viable because I doubt it actually is. But will test for sure.

EDIT: Obviously a work in progress. Need to figure out to balance streaming and vid quality.

EDIT: Sorry not going to be streaming. My internet connection is not that good. Need to considering upgrading service.

Why did you get a letter from your ISP for using internet? Is your bandwidth restricted?

Well my plan only allows 1 mbps upload but I tried streaming using 8 mbps upload so I wasn't sure what would happen. What did happen was that the stream quality is so bad that is not worth trying this again. Also I tried streaming for 90min but twitch only saved 8 min of footage which is really puzzling to me also. Anyways finished chapter 13 that I will upload before I leave for work in a few hours.

EDIT: BTW it will be a while before the next vid is ready. Taking computer for repairs tomorrow, and will be out of the country for a few weeks soon.

Watched the ch 10 video. Nice gameplay. Is it even possible to make the time limit for the 2 berserkers? Only 15 seconds for that fight.

Who the hell came up with those time limits anyway? Did they even test to see if it was possible?

Im at the twin fiend fight and this is by far the most frustrating boss fight in ngb/s. is there any trick to provoke nichaee to dive at you?

Try throwing your controller on the ground. Always worked for me, :P

Chapter 14 done: 1,349,940. 1.8k off top chapter score but tomii can have those points. The boss fight is stupid. :flame:
Leaving out of country on Monday for 9 days, (going to Peru) and next chapter has berserker challenge so it might be a while for next vid.
Here are the strategies I will try on stadium.
1. Lunar only
2. UF only
3. Dabi if above two fail

The other fight where I can get some extra points is the sloth boss battle, but otherwise, this chapter is very tight on points.
