    I love Slime Climb. It's probably my favourite game. The fact that it tends to eliminate a lot of the field is a nice boon, too.

    I honestly wish there were more levels like Slime Climb and Seesaws.

  • Options
    TheySlashThemTheySlashThem Registered User regular
    I'd like seesaws if it went much faster

    the difficulty and chaos don't bother me, that stuff if the whole appeal of it

    but you can have several minutes pass between the start of the race and the last person qualifying and that's a problem

    Seesaws has to be the game with the largest difficulty difference if you're at the front or not.

    If you get ahead of everybody it's stupid easy. If you get caught in the pack it can be hell

    basically the seesaw course should be about half its current length or moved later in the rotation, imo

    Give Seesaw a timer like Slime Climb (aka have a slime waterfall slowly make its way to the end).

    I had a second round Slime Climb once.

    We started with 40 people, and only 12 made it so we had a third level Finale.

    I just had a round of Perfect Match where we somehow dropped from 31 players to 8. That was wild.

    Griefing isn't a strategy

    It's a cry for attention, presumably resulting in a ban

    If the devs decide they don't like it they will probably pull that game from the rotation while they implement a fix like they did with Jinxed back when players would hang from ledges making it very difficult for other players to Jinx them.

    Maybe it's a jerk move, but that's really not griefing. The objective in this game is to be the last person standing. Eliminating more people so have a better chance to win is perfectly legit.

    Anyway, from what I've seen, that kind of thing seems to backfire almost as often as it works out.

    It's preventing other players from participating in the game.

    Grabbing and shoving on Rollout or Perfect Match is a jerk thing to do, but those maps at least have space to maneuver away from potential jerks and still compete. That particular choke point in Slime Climb is unavoidable, a player blocking the chokepoint moves from being a jerk or an underhanded opportunist into actively antagonizing other players in a way that the game does not provide countermeasures for.

    If that's not griefing then I don't know what is

    You can totally just jump over them there, though. Or just grab them and take them down with you. That's not some kind of sure-win strategy.

    I mean, I could totally see the devs updating the map slightly to make that less of a problem, but it's not some kind of offense that should get that person banned.

    not only is "I don't like the thing" not bannable griefing by any means, and classifying eliminating players in a last man standing multiplayer game as "being a jerk" silly and borderline a "throws in fighting games are cheap!" argument, if it works and most players die to it the perpetrator will most likely be subjected to the royal fumble hell they deserve anyways

    Is it an ass move. Sure, but I hate those yellow cylinders enough as they are so I might be a bit biased here. Is it griefing? Nope.

    The whole point of the game is the be the last person standing and to get everybody else eliminated. I might get a bit salty if I got eliminated because of it, but it's a legit strategy.

    I'd argue that an example of griefing might be doing a similar thing in a game like Whirlygig or See Saw. Taking other people out at the end doesn't really help you there, since the same number of people are going to qualify anyway. Slime Climb is different because you can actually reduce the number of people who pass.

    Still not bannable or anything, though. Gotta just get used to people being jerks in online games.

    This is disingenuous. You have to successfully complete 3/4s of the race just to stand there

    As far as eliminating players being the point of the game then the true meta of Slime Climb is for the first four players across the cylinder to just stand there and block everyone else off leading to an immediate final next round. Fastest way to get a shot at a crown

    They could have been friends. Or maybe they were hoping to mess you up by grabbing you and then managing to make the jump.

    Some people just seem to be very grabby in general though.

    Actually that brings something up, I wish that teams were marked in some way so you know who may be collaborating. There've been a few times in, say, Royal Fumble where I'm like "why is this person grabbing me and not the person with the tail?!" and then realizing that maybe they're teammates.

    I was doing good at block party but suddenly I got knocked down for reasons I'm still not sure about (I thought I had jumped over the bar) and got pushed off before I could get back up.

    There's a .. glitch? feature? .. where if you're being pushed by a bar and you're trying to move toward it you can't get up. I tried other methods, and I forget which or if both worked, but either not trying to move at all OR moving away from the bar breaks the cycle and allows you to get back up.

    That's why you have to donate your tail to your teammates. Can't trust them to get their own.
