@Crane
Acceptable alternative. The 100% intended route still has a more interesting solution, but here I would need pick-ups and stuff to fully enforce it. I will show it off later. But this type of solution is totally acceptable. :)

@Armani
R1 is intended now and you predicted correctly for R2. One is intended the other is now fixed with 2 steel blocks. ;)

@Crane & @Armani

R1 - All solutions are 100% intended. Great job! :thumbsup: Thanks again for the feedback and am glad to hear you both liked my R1 :)

R2 - All solutions are backroutes, though Armani is very accurate with how he described his second solution. For V3, I removed some steel, took away the fencer pickups and restored the skillset the way it was before with V1 (5 fencers and only 3 lasers again). I think Armani was right when he said it would be an "easy" fix. Turns out the steel was a bit too helpful. Who knew? :laugh: I feel like this could still be cheesed a bit, and if it can, my suspicion is that I simply just need to reduce the time limit some more. For now, let's just keep it at 3 mins.

Completed WillLem's "The Meeting".

As for Armani's R3 replay, it is a backroute, but I'm happy that I got a good classic air to the level.

I adjusted the link to the ruleset in the first post.

@Armani
100% Intended solution to my R3! :thumbsup:
The blocker is only there to reduce the precision on that one basher at the top.

Just to note it here in the topic: I sadly needed to clean up the update topic to get rid of the posts without entries.
@WillLem If you want you can still post an eligible level, but I must sadly reject this one as I know you already made a marble level.

@Armani

Your solution to my Rule 2 level is 100% intended.

However, I added 2 Talismans in V4.

Also your solutioin to my Rule 3 level is intended.

@Armani

R2 - Both solutions are backroutes. For V4, I've adjusted the terrain, added some terrain, and made 4 of the fencers pickups. If the level can still be cheesed, then I probably just have to modify the skillset a bit more.

R3 - You are correct in how you described your two solutions. One of them is 100% intended, the other a backroute which hopefully has been fixed with some steel I added. If you can give me confirmation that the intended route is the only way possible, that would be great. It's interesting that this level of mine reminds you of Crane's level. That honestly never occurred to me, but after our discussion on Discord I think I understand. In any case, it sounds like my R3 was quite liked by the both of you and hence my prediction was correct! :thumbsup: Honestly, I didn't expect this level to be so challenging for anyone, let alone the likes of you two :laugh: However, I think I can see why this can still trip people up, as I point out in the spoiler.

Finally did Chedder-Crusted Hash Browns the intended way (this is before any fixes were made to the level).
