I still wonder about that sometimes. Cause I couldn't find any way it could be faked at the time.
It's so long ago now that I'm not exactly sure about the details. I know there were ways to cheat survival back then involving the invincibilty glitch along with just boosting your karma. There are 90 million runs for example which aren't the usual 99,999,999 where the play time is only a minute.

I have a quick question about survival:
Is there a leaderboard for 'Kill Count' or is the Karma score the only thing that interests people?
I ask because i never cared about Karma and i feel like a very high kill count is equally impressive... when i look at survival i think about exactly that - surviving for as long as possible...
Unfortunately no there isn't. I wish there was as it would be another tool in determining what scores are legit and which aren't. If we every get enough interest here then I will add seperate ones for it but for any new entries kill count will be a requirement.

Managed to get a top 10 Kusarigama (at least by the front page) on video. The death was absolute BS but whatever, I'll take it for now. Will get that and Tonfa edited and uploaded soon.

On one hand i'm feeling better consistency with the Kusa and want to really push for a good Master Ninja run, on the other hand I think I gotta do something else for a while before I completely lose it from the repetition.

Edit: It's probably gonna be out of the leaderboards once the update goes up so r.i.p. for now and back to grinding.

Been a while since I've looked at this thread. I've started putting together a few videos, though no one really watches Survival anyway, and it's not really leaderboard content yet. Gonna see if I can commentate over kusarigama and flails, since there's barely any videos for those two. But for now all this stuff is just the mid stage of where I want to be in Survival. Currently sitting on 8.6M average, and I want to get 100 M Mission Mode Karma as my next mid term goal. I definitely feel like I'm getting better consistency on R1 Genshin in general, and that if I keep going now something good will happen eventually. I think I just need to work on keeping UT/green essence momentum properly in the second half of rounds, I don't think I *quite* have that down just yet.

Say, how come the top 10’s in this topic don’t include kills and play time? I know the in-game boards don’t include kills, but they do include time… as for kills, we could just, well, share our numbers, so that we had more complete lists.

I don't think anyone took note of time back then, like with a lot of things it was all about score. Since the last update though kills will be included provided people can provide proof.

Okay. Well... I suppose I'll start, then. (Writing it in such a format that it can be just copy/pasted.) I can only attach 3 pictures at a time, so I'll divide the post in two.

Dragon Sword
6. Grayson1048 - 14,296,910 - 1:10:39 - 806 kills

Vigoorian Flails
8. Grayson1048 - 12,422,430 - 0:59:25 - 603 kills

EDIT: No longer in the Tonfa top 10, hadn’t bothered to check. Also #8 on VF, not #5.

Dumbass deaths are all the rage for me these days! Made Scythe rank 10 just now, that's 8/8 top 10 for me.
Soon I'll try and improve to make up for yesterday's and today's dimwit deaths, but for now I'll take a break.

Attempted to complete the Acolyte Round in all 4 Format A missions on a single segment as fast as I could.
I actually never had played the Survival missions going for speed, and it does make things quite different. Format A is the hardest one for me, and I even had to move up the Kusari-gama because that mission had killed 3 runs.

Format B is much easier, as I was able to record this on my first try after the trial run. I underestimated the last weapon, though, just as I did yesterday.

This is sick, pretty sure this is the first time a full number 1 spot on Survival has been captured fully on video. I hope he uploads it to Youtube that way I can link it in the list.

VOD of that specific run https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1547996377

I thought PG had a full vid of when he got his #1 TDS spot back a few years now but seems his youtube is deleted.

I know PG had some of that run recorded but I can't remember how much. Crazy that most of the top ten runs and scores are over 12 years old now. I wish Ninja Cinema had worked better back then, it would have been amazing to see full runs of them.

Hello Goomba. Listen, since you’re a mod know, would you mind updating the boards with my scores? I did them last year and requested for the boards to be uploaded, but I never got a response.
(I made the youtube evidence videos private, but I can make them public again for confirmation, if needed.)

Scythe: Rank 9 - 15,712,830 - 637 kills
Tonfa: Rank 5 - 17,694,780 - 809 kills
Talons: Rank 6 - 11,938,030 - 621 kills
