I apologize, but the level of submissions is far too low for me to consider this worthwhile. Clearly the excitement from the first week died quickly, and my efforts to advertise haven't gotten anywhere.

I thank everyone who has participated. Unfortunately, it's just not happening.
I want to give a huge thanks to Oofalong who actually threw hypercrates in to help this get off the ground.

Unfortunately, since it didn't get anywhere, there's really no reason to keep pushing it.

Speed Run Challenge

Goal: Be the fastest guild to clear operations!

Super quick rules (see below for full detail):

All submission must include a a continuous full clear video with a visible, continuous UTC Clock visible (such as one here - http://www.timeanddate.com/worldcloc...en.html?n=1440). Twitch highlights are the preferred mode of submission as they cannot be edited. Here is an example video that explains what your output should look like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMifPkY_37Y

Each guild can submit multiple runs!

See the full submission reporting rules below for specific rules about how to do the operation.

Session #2: PreviousOperation - Dread Fortress
(From March 31, 2015 to April 14, 2015)

Currently in the 48-hour grace period. All runs submitted must show a time before server reset on March 31, 2015 (server reset is typically 12-noon UTC)

Session #3: Current Operation - Dread Fortress
(From March 31, 2015 to April 14, 2015)

Timer ends when Brontes health hits zero HP or when the combat indicator turns yellow. Whichever comes first.

Final rule: Please keep forum topic clear of chatter, trash talk, etc. If I'm going to do this, limit how much I need to read. Above all else, be nice and have fun!

I was super interested in this, then I stopped being interested in this when you said that trash can be skipped.

GG full stealth team or a team with an operative.

The issue is if I say trash isn't skippable, then I have to get into which groups of trash you have to kill. For example, in Dread Palace, you can, without stealth, move past the groups near the entrance. If I say you HAVE to kill that group, does that mean you have to kill both groups? Do you have to kill the trash at the end of the main hall that disappears when you kill Raptus? What determines whether you HAVE to kill a trash group or not? It's too much of a gray area for me to try to police.

Now, I WOULD be willing to consider a "You can't stealth past trash rule", but even that gets into a gray area. Would it be okay to CC the one mob that guards the narrow safe side along the wall?

Honestly, I don't ask these questions rhetorically. If you have a good answer, let me know. But I'm not going to make a checklist of which trash is skippable and which isn't for your run to count.

Everything must be killed by the players unless it can be removed from play by the mechanics of the Operation (avoiding patrols in the direct path and mobs not in the direct path to the next boss would fall into this as well).

That's really not a black and white rule, but I do see what your getting at. I am thinking about this. I will decide by server reset.

Thank you very much for your input.

You could go through the op(s) and take a screenshot of each map. Mark the locations where mobs appear or just state how many groups there are per map so people know what they need to kill.
