The Elite Challenges Grand Leaderboard v2

Recommended Posts

Bolatsi

We could do it a lot better

 

I'm not going into detail, but there is lot to improve in Pac standard times. Even looking at that 9:40 WR I get the feeling "you could do that faster" many times.

 

It's mainly due to the getaway with bikes that makes the biggest difference in times. That part just needs to be flawless, but it's also the hardest part.

 

All in all I'm looking forward to see better times in that one.

 

 

EDIT. sorry, there were already better times in this thread, the leaderboard just hasn't updated.

If it wasn't for the bad luck crash and they got here in time flawlessly, we would've likely got 9:25 at best. All in all, I'm still happy since we got quite a bit of money spamming the elite challenge for extra 200k last Sunday. Edited by lol232

i've always wanted to complete elite challenges with my friends, but that seems pretty much impossible, so i'm here now. all i got at the moment is 4:50 on fleeca.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=494711742

in humane labs, i can finish the route race in 2:25 stable, and i can say i'm pretty good with bikes (fails might happen though), if you'd like me to participate, add HTID.. on SC.

i play around 7:10PM-11/12PM GMT+3

 

if you want, here's my old 5:03 run that i never got to publish because it sucks

https://youtu.be/LamI_3UM12g

 

oh yeah... PC.

Ps3 9:49 pac standard, bitches! Hopefully I can get my friend's link to the vid :L prodigy_rocks, zxxjaykillceexxz, Andy_rao, shivisrt10 OMFG knew we were doing everything right! :D thanks guys!

Pics I have: we didn't get a video of the whole run, so unofficial leaderboards it is I guess!

After finding out from stang that lag causes the timer to be incorrect occasion ally, I can say the game said we got 9:49, but by my timer we got 10:01, and 10:00 by my friend's. In which case I would probably say 10:01 to take joint first ps3 when the video's up :) sorry bout da confusion!

 

 

 

Could anyone confirm whether I can submit the 9:49 time for the LG leaderboard, or the 10:01 time please? :p

If it's the 10:01, I won't bother with uploading the video, but if I can submit the 9:49, then...! :D

 

Edit(s): Trying to unlgitchify GTAF :p

The 9:40 on Pacific Job can easily be beaten, and will be beaten by my crew soon enough. We got 9:41 with a crash and not near perfect run to the bank, in the bank, and out of the bank.

 

As for the bike in the Prison Break, I call bullsh.. We are being forced to follow these kids just to have a chance of beating it then, and I don't want to do it this way. I hope it gets patched, but I'm guessing Rockstar have other things to think about.

I guess rorxy will make the call but he has not been around.

I had just hoped when thet happened to me it was a 1 time glitch of the game. Seeing it now happen to you I have to say is extremely disappointing. Who knows what other times have been glitched. We should not have to keep track of our times and all times should be legitimate. Just another huge letdown from R.

Watching that fleeca vid its like night and day compared to ps3. The lack of lag is amazing. Just doing series a last night and we could barely make it to the trucks and failed quite a few times solely because of the lag. We had enemies not spawning correctly, enemies shooting us before we can even see them on the map, enemy dots disappearing after we killed them only to reappear and kill us. Its an abomination. All I can do is hang my head in disgust.

I don't want to start an argument about if it should be uploaded or not. But that's a hell of a problem. In my opinion, if we measure the video with a timer and the time is different from the in game, it is not legit. But then we have to consider that some videos (Mostly last gen since they don't have an in-game recorder) have bad frame rate which can make a few seconds of difference from the timer. And if Rorxy say no to your video, should we measure all the videos already on the leaderboard to make sure the time is legit?

 

EDIT: Why GTA Forums looks glitchy after your comment? Is this a problem with my bronswer or everyone is experiencing this as well?

Right, so about the trick to remove vests; you can just use a scarf and it'll immediately remove it rather than scrolling though tonnes of masks.

If you wish to, you may use that instead.

Its a glitch because it allows you to wear the heavy vests while in the lab then allows you to remove the vests to swim faster through the tunnel.

Is it therefore cheating going straight to the dinghy in pacific standard, cutting out a significant portion of travel which r* obviously didn't intend you to do.

Rockstar did intend for you to go straight to the dinghy for the Elite Challenge, otherwise there is absolutely no way to follow the checkpoints in time.

I think Lesters route is just a suggestion. He even says something like stay together or use a different route. The onscreen instructions just say head to the canyon.

It just sounds like a clothing glitch to me. Idk exactly how it works but I assume you wear the heavy vests and by putting on a scarf it removes the vests and puts normal clothes on. It may be a harmless glitch, but still a glitch. Maybe I shouldnt go as far as to say its cheating. But using something like this and beating someone elses time with it , I personally would feel like I cheated to beat their time.

 

As mentioned Idk if its even possible to beat the time using lesters route. Same for Humane. I am not sure it can be done without using the current method which involves ignoring the enemies in the parking lot.

It seems rockstar tried very hard to discourage that with the ninja rockets that are like 100% guaranteed homing rockets within range :p

Yet, most of the times on prison break are using that method - some things are just things that you may not have thought of!

 

Also, I don't think anyone I know has actually tried to go around the mountain. What if the timer stops when the last person jumps off the cliff and the instructions change from "parachute off the cliff" to "get in the dinghy"

Lester's "I'm hearing confused voices coming out of my Police scanner!" suggests that there are no cops even if you go straight for the Dinghy (which contradicts it because there are still tonnes of cops). So Rockstar intended it to be parachuted onto the damn boat to lose the cops rather than going straight for it.

 

How would the crew lose the cops with a f*cking Dinghy if they couldn't in Lectroes by driving halfway across the map?

 

It's just more difficult to add restrictions to GTA O missions/heists comparing to SP. If this was SP, you would most likely HAVE to follow the route, otherwise - "MISSION FAILED".

 

OP and other people who only count runs they want and add restrictions to routes and ways...

...You're turning this into "GRAND LEADERBOARD OF TIMES ONLY I CAN PERSONALLY APPROVE!"

SMH.

As long as it's not patched by Rockstar it should be counted.

I think if R intended it to be that way they would have forced you to use the checkpoints like they do in the alley.

Put it this way..How would you like if someone beat your time by glitching away their vests when you did not?

The bikes thing has been debated and I think the majority is against it. R does not patch alot of things. Does that mean glitching millions of dollars is OK because R did not patch it? NO. If you just want the shirt, then by all means use all the glitches you want. But IMO the leaderboard should be strictly for clean runs.

If that happened to me, I wouldn't care, and as a matter of fact, I would congratulate them. (and then try to beat it using their new method)

That's like, someone finds a new method to complete something and your record gets beaten, and then you cry because of that and don't approve it. Or better yet, a cutscene managed to load faster for someone, and you don't approve it because X reason.

You are able to use the glitch yourself as well, so no, it's NOT unfair.

You should know that new methods get found out all the time and a lot of speedrunning communities approve many glitches as long as they're not patched.

 

Rather than crying how someone blasted your record, step up and blast them back.

You people whine way too much.

You just called it a glitch yourself. If you cant beat the challenges without glitches then you know what? you suck lol

If you wanna congratulate someone that used glitches to beat you then thats your problem.

The rules state this is not allowed. If you dont like it make your own leaderboard and fill it up with glitchers if thats what you want.

 

Watching your vid I see why you are defending this because you did infact use the glitch which unfortunately is not allowed according to the rules. And no I did not make the rules. New methods are perfectly fine as long as they dont require glitches to do them.

 

Thats my opinion anyway. I want to see a clean leaderboard filled with elite players.

I dont care who was able to glitch the best times.

 

And if R does ever go back to patch things whos gonna go back and watch every vid to see who glitched or not?

 

There are no guidelines here other than the ones we the community can come up with. The rules have to be made up as we go along. We have to come here and be honest with ourselves.

 

Your poor example of a cut scene loading and your name calling just shows you do not have the mentality to take this seriously.

If you feel you cant beat the challenges without cheating and insist on doing so then maybe this isnt the place for you. Some of us like to take these challenges seriously.

Lol as a matter of fact, the heavy vest trick barely makes the run faster, it just makes you die less therefore makes you have less retries.

 

I was actually defending the bikes method mainly, FYI.

Well, if you're so elite you'll be able to do it with the glitch even better than the noobs. :)

Do it. Just do it.

If you're so elite, then prove it and beat them in their own game.

 

And if R does ever go back to patch things whos gonna go back and watch every vid to see who glitched or not?

As I said, you're too lazy to try and beat them in their own game, so instead of using their method, you instead cry how it's cheating.

 

My point here is; speedrunning communities always approved glitches and tricks, but now for whatever the reason you're not.

Now you're calling me lazy for refusing to glitch? And Im crying because I dont want to cheat? Really ? LOL

 

I have beaten all challenges multiple times each without the use of any type of glitches just for fun. If thats what you call lazy then so be it.

My time is 10:49 and yours is 10:50...I HAVE beat you at your own game on Last gen and without glitches.

To sit there and say any and all glitches are ok until R patches them is just rediculous.

No I dont approve of glitching to beat the times but like I said I dont make the rules, I can only give my opinion.

Im not going to continue arguing about it but I will say this. The proof is in your own video that you knowingly and purposely used a exploit of the game to obtain a faster time which is clearly written in the rules.

Well? It's true. People're crying "muh he beat my record, i ain't using his method!" in regards of the Prison Break, rather than stepping up.

 

I have beaten all challenges multiple times each without the use of any type of glitches just for fun. If thats what you call lazy then so be it.

Nice! Impressive! Want a cookie? Now what does Last Gen have anything to do with anything?

Actually, yes, it's very valid. If Rockstar doesn't particularly give a sh*t about it, then we shouldn't either and just let the bike glitch slide. It's their game, after all.

 

No I dont approve of glitching to beat the times but like I said I dont make the rules, I can only give my opinion.

LOL. I wasn't even TRYING to get a world record. I was literally just trying to beat the challenge for the first time (so keep in mind, it was the first time I've ever beaten it, same goes for the other 3, and I even crashed once when a teammate accidentally knocked me over in the process).

My trick barely affects the time, that is if it affects it at all, it literally just makes me retry and die less, the shootout part can be in most cases luck based since enemies can sometimes "get lazy" and not shoot you in time, or go full terminator and kill you in sight. If anything, the point where I have to remove the vest, slightly slows me down.

 

And for the second time, I was mostly referring to THE PRISON BREAK BIKE GLITCH when I said "glitches" in my previous posts.

Since it was your first time Im gonna let you know that wearing normal clothes instead of the vests does save alot of time. You swim much, much slower with the vests on.

You realise I used the "mask trick" to remove the vest in the swimming part, right? Do you even know what we are discussing now?

As I said, it slightly slowed me down especially when I had to remove it, but it just made me die less ergo less retries. If I was aiming for WR, I would most definitely go with light clothing.

mask glitch*

As I said Im not going to continue arguing with someone who is obviously hardheaded. You have not provided a single valid point to this entire conversation and Im not sure where you are trying to go with it.

 

Your last comment makes zero sense to me as you are again admitting to using this glitch.

Why even bother posting the video if it clearly breaks the rules? I suggest if you are trying to make the leaderboard you submit a new run without the use of glitches.

If you can't go through the HLR Heist as ground team without dieing not wearing a vest, then maybe you need to keep playing for some weeks or months until you are good enough.
