I just discovered a nifty maneuver. Very Happy

...except it's incredibly hard to execute.

So do you think you will be able to pull of a zero coin run?

Impossible. But 3 isn't looking as unlikely as it did.

In world 8/4 don't you need to hit a coin block to get into the pipe?

Also in 8/3 there are some jumps that I just don't see how it is possible to clear them without picking up the coins over them.

There are about 3 places where getting coins appears manditory. One is tricky to get past but not too bad. One is really tricky. It takes perfect timing. The last one is nearly impossible. But it can be done. Well, actually there may be another way on the last one, but I haven't made it that far to test it yet.

I don't see how it's possible to avoid the two in 8-1 and the block in 8-4.

I wanna post it so fucking bad. I don't even care if somebody pulls it off and I don't, but Douche said no vids or strats. Not that I think anybody is gonna pull it off.

Why am I in second place if I beat the game and made it to the energy zone, with no powerups AT ALL?

We can't post videos or describe how we're doing.

I haven't seen anything prohibiting talk about strategy, so long as you don't give away how you're actually doing.

Yeah. You can get past those. I suppose once you got the hang of it, you might be able to do it regularly. I've only done it a couple times ever. I don't want to give it away, but its not your basic jump. There is more to it.

I'm not sure he said specifically, but I'll wait until he says its okay before I go into detail.

Just look at the picture. Think about what you can do to get across. The secret is right there.

Strats I used loosely, just don't tell people how to do stuff.
In essence no videos, yet, no describing strats, and no telling what you were able to accomplish, (i.e. telling us what your video will show us) until the event is over. The above pic I wouldn't consider a strat but saying how to avoid them or what not would be.

Well in that case, I wont say anything beyond look at the picture, think about what you see in the picture and get creative. So basically, I'm stating the obvious. But the first time I ever seen it done, I thought it was pretty impressive. Its still impressive. But its something I think I should have thought of before.

I'll make one last exception. After this week if your not in, your not going to be in. Got that lurkers? You have 4 days left.

I'm incredibly horrible at telling people no and since i'd say 50% of the people who signed up are nowhere to even be seen I'd say fuck it and let you in. It's about the games anyways. If anyone has a problem with it let me know in a PM so you don't have to look like an asshole.
