I've been insanely busy lately, which is why I haven't had the time to tell you about the insane world record activity that we've been having on TS2.
So let's talk about Batteries. Not the kind you put in your TV remote to make it work, nor the kind you stick under the hood of your car, but Batteries as in "But Where Do the Batteries Go?" Historically, this is one of the most played stages in TS2, so the 1:54.8 WR by Ace was pretty damn good. I say "was" because Ace decided he didn't want 1:54.8. His original 1:54.8 run rounded up from 1:54.7. So Ace decided to play Batteries again. He got no less than eight
runs under 1:55 and another 1:54.7 that rounded up before finally getting a new WR. 1:54.7
The effort need by Ace was tremendous, so when Matthijs Triep got 1:54.6
about two minutes after Ace got his 1:54.7, it came as a bit of a surprise. That's right. 1:54.6
seemingly out of nowhere. This new record now means that Matthijs holds all three Story Classic world records. A big congrats Matthijs.
There's more. I haven't mentioned Mega Destructor. He's been playing Shrinking from the Cold. A lot. First he got 23.4, which is a site record. Then someone told him that once upon a time someone had claimed that they got 22.9, but it was never proven. So Mega Destructor fired up his XBox and played more SftC. He next got 23.1, in which he made a few changes to where he stands to fire the grenades. He kept grinding at it and today announced an undisputed untied world records of 22.8
...with a dam spawn. Absolutely insane.
Mega Destructor also got 13.3 on Trouble at the Docks, becoming the eighth person on this site to do so.
