Ok this is definitely my last submission for now, but seeing NTSC-J's score made me decide to see if I could improve my score a bit. I wanted more but a few bad deaths at critical moments put a stop to that.

I tried going into overtime more often but after about 20 seconds I have to spam bombs to stay alive, so I played it safer and tried to get as much score as I could without going too far past the limit.

Man, I'm amazed at you two pushing this game so hard. Don't count me out of that 4 billion mark yet, but I don't know if I can reach the heights NTSC-J has... With Japanese top scores across the different boards rarely going past high 3b or low 4b, I think it's safe to say the Japanese players have largely slept on the game (for now); that means more world records for us, right?!

Yeah it definitely looks like Japan didn't play this for long.

You've already got 3.7 so a few less deaths should get you over the 4 billion threshold.

Hitting 5 billion would be tough, I think I could get about 4.7 or maybe 4.8 with a no miss but I doubt I'll ever get that.

Wow, congrats on the Hard mode clear Sturmvogel! It's great to see some more Hard mode love. I want to play a bit more of Hard mode (as I've said before), though normal keeps on calling me back to push farther.

BUT! I am happy to finally update the thread with my own milestone: cracking 4 billion!
I had actually gotten -just- over 4b the other night, but i wasn't satisfied enough with my performance so I went at it again the last two days, pushing past my old PB by 200 million. It makes me seriously wonder if 5b is doable, given that I died eight times over the course of this run.

Definitely a highlight was getting over 800m in Stage 1! It's a tough stage to score, and I feel like my scores fluctuate the most on this stage vs the others. I managed some clutch dodges of Sonay and Selma as the screen barfed ghosts all around me.

Nice, I thought you'd get it.

My highest with Nur on stage 1 is 798m, which I've got more than once.

Thanks! My absolute best for s1 is 897m. I was shocked when it happened... "what did I do differently?" This is what I mean about s1 scores fluctuating so much. Average is 700m range, but every now and then I see a huge jump.

Also, why quit while you're ahead? A new best! Catching up to you now :wink:
This run saw me spend a bit more time milking Lale and Ece, despite nearly quitting in frustration over two stupid deaths at the Nur fight. Apparently that extra legwork made up for it. I missed two x8 kills for Yashin and Yashin Demon, respectively, but all the same I did a pretty good job keeping things moving in the right direction, score-wise. I still haven't quite gotten down the best method for Sonay's milk. I know that some Japanese players circle around her but I can't pull that off without dying.

Clearly my strats on Sonay are far from optimal, I never really worked out a good way to get more points out of her without damaging her so I'd just go full on in her face, getting about 50 million each time but damaging her a lot too. I didn't really bother milking Ece either, none of her patterns looked very good for that.

Really great stuff, already watched your vid.

And yeah, this game will definitely be in my top 25 next year.

Needless to say I ripped off a few of iconoclast's strats to get this. I think I'd be happier if this score was maybe one or two hundred million higher, my dodgy execution let me down a few times in this run.

The run was mostly good in terms of survival though, it could have been no miss but for two deaths right at the end.

I might try to get it a bit higher, there's still a few spots where I'm not doing as well as I could, especially on stage 3.

I could do better than this but I can't seem to do a run without losing tons of lives at the moment.

I'm being humbled, not only by Mero's constant improvements, but by Iconoclast's incredible scores. Congrats to both of you! I'm thinking I'm going to be picking up the Microsoft store version soon and start playing on pc (and recording proper runs). Awesome job, guys! You're making me want to push myself to go for 5 billion

Thanks! I'll definitely check it out if you make a video, I wouldn't mind trying again myself but doing it on my phone is a pain.

I did a few runs this morning that were all in the same ball park but this was the highest. Not much of an increase but I can't seem to play well at the moment, I died in every stage on this run.

Another small increase from me. I had a better scoring run than this earlier but I totally blew it at the end and didn't clear.

Video is direct capture this time, 30fps but at least it's better than doing it on my phone.

Oh my God man, you are really pushing it. Is 6 billion around the corner?

I got the Microsoft store version a week ago and did some play/streaming. Of course right after they announce a steam port! Oh well. I was derusting a little but I had 3+ billion at the start of stage 5 so I was about on pace to my usual clear. 5 billion still seems like a tough challenge.

6 billion is possible but I'd have to play a lot better than this, 5.9 might be more realistic.

For getting 5 billion I'd say concentrate on getting more score before entering the last stage, if you could hit about 3.5 you could do it. Remember you've got iconoclast's video to help you (or my video if you get desperate).

Yeah, on top of not getting hit so much, I still need to improve my stage 1. I want to hit 800m+ and above consistently (ideally 900m) instead of slumming in the 700s. It's a hard stage to score in for some reason! 8)

Probably the biggest missed points for me right now are stage 1 boss, stage 3 pre-boss, and stage 5 in general. Those are a lot of areas with which to go from 4.4 to 5+. I'm definitely going to watch your vid later Mero to see if I can glean some extra strategies for myself. :mrgreen:
