First thing's first - here's the point participation sheet! This year, I don't think participation itself is as important? If there are "submit and done" participation points to be had, then please do those. But other than that, focus on what you want to. Having a spotty colorization on participation isn't exactly the end of the world. In the end, we are at Smash Camp to have fun, and if you don't want to slog over an event that you don't find fun, no one's going to fault you for that. But what this does is let us know if there's an event that people aren't focusing on, and it lets us keep track of how much points we've racked up over the week which is fun.

That said, I think another fun little thing to do this year would be to keep track of our scores on events with scores throughout the day. This serves two purposes - if you want to know how well you're doing in comparison to others, it helps with that, and it also helps with being a place where we can get advice for those events. So if you have any tips or tricks for events that show up, post them here. The leaderboards themselves are on the participation tracker excel sheet, but I want this to be a place where we can discuss tips and tricks to try to help eachother out some. Of course, it's moot as of now since we don't have any events yet, but when we start getting events, this'll become a lot more relevant.

Just a side lil thing - we've got the Pokemon Showdown and Smash Ultimate tournaments up, if you're interested! Even if you're not good, if you think you'd be active and if you find these games fun, then I really can't urge you strongly enough to sign up. I'm going to sign up for both, and I'm, admittedly, god awful at both, but hey playing games are fun.

If that's Flash Geometry Wars and it's anything like the console version... You need to build up a long combo. Mostly just gotta dodge the bullet hell, rack up your points, and figure out the priority targets that'll give you the most hell.

Canabalt: Mostly reflexes.
  • Recommends avoiding top speed. Try to hit a box on a long stretch of building.
  • Avoid all obstacles as much as possible inside buildings. Typically needed good speed while exiting. Easier said than done, though.
  • Runs into bad luck sometimes. Collided with several satellites with no chance of dodging.
  • Splatted into so many windowed buildings. Ends runs more than anything.

Geometry Wars: Just started this recently. Current best: 59300.
- Focus on your ship, not the others.

Also quick clicks in rapid succession make you get a lot of acceleration

Double-posted for importance. Focused on the perfect jump achievements. Yielded so many points. Leapt from 564116 points to 928352. (Survived a good while too.)

Damn that's a hella high score, noted. Iirc last year scores in the 1-1.5mil range placed, and that was when it was only 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. I'll start grinding that one again soon

Thanks for the tips! They helped me get a decent score of about 700k, but now my brain is fried. Still, your 1.4 million should be enough to win us first place ^^

Figured out a decent strategy to Klung.
  1. Begin with several fast clicks. Builds up good speed.
  2. Keep your height as steady as possible (in levels 1 and 2 especially). Minimize any upward and downward movement (minus dodging blocks). Recommends staying in the middle of the screen.
  3. Restart (r) if necessary. Encountered irritating beginning sections plenty of times.

Creates a big lead on the virus. Aims for -40m at the end of the first section and -70m at the end of the second section. Mitigates awful block placement later.

Cannot help everything, of course.
6080

6086

Admits some fault on the second one.

(Ran into one section with a one block wide shaft down followed by a one block wide shaft up too. Did not screenshot that in time.)

For the Curveball flash game, your best bet of getting a high score is just making sure you stay alive.

Oh and if you lose a life on Level 1 / Level 2...

Reset immediately

Also, for reference -

Level 1 and 2 - Easy
Level 3 and 4 - Medium
Level 5 and 6 - Hard
Level 7 and beyond - Very Hard

Curveball observations:
  • Try to curve your serve. Aced them up to Level 5 with a side/corner shot sometimes. (Note: Took a while to curve it at all. Whiffed completely dozens of times.)
  • (Based on level 1) End it quickly if you cannot execute Super Curved shots. (See above.) Received about 3070 points total with several Super Curved shots. Earned about 2870 without them.

Predicts the top scores to come down to Super Curved shots. Goes berserk at level 7. Lucked into level 8 twice. Will probably not reach level 9.
