    I try to hold on to my tail for as long as possible, if for no other reason than to practice my dodging skills.

    Yeah, I think that platform is the one with the wall he jumped up on.

    Hello everyone else on my team playing Egg Scramble and/or Hoarders.

    The aim is not to have the most at the end of the round. The aim is to not have the least.

    Steal eggs/balls from the other team that has the least, not the most. JFC.

    If we are currently leading by 1 and it's gone to overtime help one of the other teams steal a ball.

    You can't win these rounds, only lose.

    I have a thoughtful and infrequently updated blog about games http://whatithinkaboutwhenithinkaboutgames.wordpress.com/

    I made a game, it has penguins in it. It's pay what you like on Gumroad.

    Currently Ebaying Nothing at all but I might do in the future.

    This is of course factually accurate, but I devote all my efforts in the team games to ensuring that Red loses, no matter what the current game state is.

    Does this include instances when I am placed on the red team? I don't have to answer that. Talk to my lawyer.

    two teams picking on a third is objectively the best strategy but it is aggravating if you're the third team and not actually particularly fun if you're one the other two

    the lead team's base is usually relatively unguarded and I can actually do playing the game type things

    I'm here to get to the final round as coolly and efficiently as possible before eliminating myself within seconds due to comical misplay not have fun!

    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

    I'd like See Saws if I never played it again.

    People have started timing their runs on slime climb, this may be the current WR.

    An interesting thing about Slime Climb is that it starts an invisible timer when a person finishes, which can end the level even before the slime rises all the way. So if someone blitzes the level like OhHeyItsDavid did there, it usually results in a handful of people getting eliminated because they hung around the finish line for too long trying to take out other people.

    ok this one linked in the comments to his 46 second is hilarious. Much much faster but probably not intentionally so and I'm not sure you could duplicate it reliably!

    After days of playing this and not having won, I finally got a victory last night! And then I won again in the very next game! And then I made it to the last round of the next game where I encountered Hex-a-gone for the very first time. So that was a fun roll.

    I love Hexagone with 8ish players, but once you hit 13+ it's just obnoxious

    I feel like the "be x at end of time" levels would be better if they scored as "least amount of control over the timer loses"

    FYI in Hexagone there's an exploit that lets you just jump in mid-air and fly, auto-winning the round :/

    Before this, I'd gotten Fall Mountain about 80% of the time in the final round and Jump Showdown the other times. I won a Hex-a-gone round a few games later too!

    I felt a little less pumped about my Fall Guys victory after I saw 23% of all players have that achievement on Steam though :P

    Finally saw hex a gone, not that bad? Better than Fall mountain IMO as that's more "did you start in the first row and not screw up"

    Fun article from Polygon about the evolution of Fall Guys' design:

    https://www.polygon.com/2020/8/20/21378069/fall-guys-pitch-document-twitter-thread-jeff-tanton

    Also I know the Seesaw level is not uh... enjoyed... but a lot of people, but it's honestly one of my favorites. Just sheer chaos.

    Edit:

    Oh whoops, sorry TDOT, didn't realize the tweet you quoted was this same article!

    I am bad at Slime Climb and I am not afraid to admit it.

    I think I'd do not have a good grasp on the interactions of jumps, dives and landings.

    A note on Seesaws: If you use the dive button instead of the jump button you are much more likely to stand up after landing instead of rolling down the platform. The design seems to be the jump button is for jumping to obstacles above you while dive works better to go downwards

    the only part of slime climb that really fucks me up is the yellow logs. sometimes i'll slide off from the middle, sometimes i'll stay on from the side. i never know

    everything else is never really a problem

    Also, jumping and then diving a little before you hit the platform works wonders.

    feels kind of early to start teasing that but I guess the seasons are only two months long

    So it's known that you can grab onto the lip of certain platforms and pull yourself up (using the grab button); it turns out that the rectangular plungers on Slime Climb are valid targets for that move. If you're about to get dunked off the side, you might be able to save yourself by grabbing onto it.

    you can also do this as it is moving inward to clip inside the next floor and jump to pop outside above it

    Regular season changes seems like the best way to keep interest up.

    Is it just me or have the chances of encountering certain games gotten really screwy since they implemented the fix that disallowed team games from happening back-to-back? I feel like there's a 95% chance that Roll Out will be the third round in every game, but I just played Fruit Chute for the first time in like three days.

    I need an exhaustive guide on the different result of jumping / diving onto every surface at every angle.

    The whole "diving onto slopes results in you not tumbling down them" is not super intuitive

    The only general rule I guess is that jumping/falling onto uneven surfaces can cause you to stumble, but it definitely varies. Diving prevents stumbling, and is especially notable on See Saw for letting you get up quicker... but there is still a bit of lag after a dive, which may depend on how far you fall, so making dives on Hex-a-Gone for example can be pretty risky. I also find that diving nearly guarantees ragdolling if you hit another guy, although that can happen with regular jumps too.

    The biggest mystery to me is Fall Mountain, where you sometimes just stumble and fall over when dropping down the lip at the start of the level. But it doesn't seem to happen if you jump. No idea why.

    I just won my first game! In the second to last round I scored a hat trick in Fall Ball while being on the shorthanded side of a 5v6, then grabbed the tail with less than 5 seconds to play in the final round of Tail Tag. I'm a little uncomfortable with how fast my heart rate is, but I could run through a wall right now.
