Karma Run Complete (11,531,815)

Post by julius-ruler4 » Mon Sep 24, 2018 8:58 pm

Just couldn't resist trying it again. Not doing full blown but this is just so people see what a potential score is on Hard

Look here

This is seriously sad that I thought it was impossible, though I still believe that you can squeeze out an extra 6k till 990k

Scorelist:

Day 1: 985,326 (967,815; +17,511)
Day 2: 1,218,623 (1,214,655; +3,968)
Day 2A: 960,992 (960,959; +33)
Day 3: 1,278,130 (1,234,054; +44,076)
Day 4: 998,821 (941,734; +57,087)
Day 5: 1,074,235 (1,028,002; +46,233)
Day 6: 1,011,693 (956,423; +55,270)
Day 6A: 1,029,035 (1,019,580: +9,455)
Day 7: 1,415,375 (1,382,820; +32,555)
Day 8: 1,559,585 (1,332,379; +227,206)

Total: 11,531,815 (11,038,421; +493,394)

EDIT: Has become a full blown karma run. Anyone who wants to go after this score, good luck to you.

I'll adjust the OP with the scores once I finished Day 3. I seriously don't know how I'll stay ahead of my previous run. I had scored over 11 million (11,038,421) and I am at the bug cave in Day 3 with an aheadance of 45k.

I look at previous runs and write down the amount of enemies so I can max out my score. Still miss points here and there, but I stay ahead of my previous score RN. Day 4 will be for later, cuz I got a lot of stuff to do today.

Day 4 is going to be a pain to karma farm, just like Days 5 & 6. I need a decent approach for these 3 days.

Day 5 is one of the reasons I would like to give up. Those BS Ninjas are so not cooperative and do nothing else but continuously attacking which costs me a lot of health and time. I'm trying to get at least a bonus of 44k to stay on par with my previous run.

But, as stubborn as I am, giving up is not an option IMO

KRs are tough. They take a lot of patience. More than some of us have.

Made some significant progress today. Improved some fights but in overall those BS Ninjas are so not cooperative. Whoever invented RNG has to be shot in the head to improve it. So not useful...

Another thing I figured out is that when fighing enemies, Ryu would prefer to do an OT over a SoB with an injured opponent. Also, the likelihood of an enemy trying to grab you then is bigger so you can destroy him with the OT or SoB

EDIT: While they are still not cooperative, I did manage to squeeze out an additional 46k.

Current total after Day 5: 6,516,127 (6,347,219; +168,908)

Day 6 completed and got an (almost) impossible highscore that people can try to beat. Scoring over 1 million on Day 6 is a hell of an achievement

Day 7 done. Still missing a few points here and there but I scored 1,41 million on Day 7.

I will take a break and start Day 8 soon. I think I'll break 11,5 if I get good RNG.

Run is over. Sweated a lot and still could have gotten even more.

Final score: 11,531,815

Difference with previous run: 493,394

Legit and no glitches or bugs that happened. I am so happy to break that threshold of 11,5 million

Amazing job Julius! Question, why are most KR's in NG3RE done on Hard, any reason in particular?

Cuz from my experience on Vanilla NG3 on MN, the enemies were extremely cheap and I got destroyed in just a few attacks. I prefer to have it all unlocked so that I can do a proper run on the higher difficulties.

Also, Hard is my favourite difficulty to karma farm. Pretty much everything above 10,5 million is hard Karma. Dang difficult to.

There is a lot about the game that is not known by many people, including some NGRealm members. A lot more comes into play when doing a KR on RE. It is a bit too much to actually explain here. But the important thing to remember is that you need to know, how much health an enemy has and how likely the enemies will do a red-glow. Also, you need to know which weapon you need to use against a certain enemy. It all comes into play.

I saw people on other (now gone) websites claiming they scored 9,5 million and they told me that the threshold of 9,75 could never be broken. I proved them wrong 3 years ago by getting 10,58 million. Now, it is 11,53 million.

Reim, I'm glad you supported me again for this kind of run
Royta, you should try a KR yourself here on NG3:RE. I think that if you put your mind to it, you might be able to score above 11 million as well.

Yeah, the higher difficulties become very cheap.
