Howdy! This is Drop with a new event! As you readed in the title, I'm making a Speedrun Event called Racing Through Knowledge. This contest consists in making a Speedrun of all the Starter Quests (Except the brand new "Farm Master"). You don't know what a Speedrun is? Check out this website for the defenition: https://urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=speed%20run.

Q U E S T I O N S

What do i need to participate?
You will need the game (of course) and a screen/video recorder to record the full speedrun. After completing it, post a comment here with the video (use any video platforms, such as YouTube or Vimeo).

I did all the Starter Quests allready. What should I do?
In all Speedruns, you have to start a new game file. Since here we dont use game files, you have to start a new account. The time only starts when you press the "Play" button with your new account. We suggest to save the account for verification problems.

Can I set up my Speedrun by giving some resources/cubits to my Speedrun account?

As I said, you have to start from 0. If you use any "extras" your run wont be classified as an entry. The only thing you can do to help you on your run is using a friend to join you to a clan (for the quest "No Man Is An Island!"). If you do it three times, you will be disqualified from the contest!

Can I put time counters/speedrun sections/other video components to the video?
Yes you can. In fact, that what the majority of the Speedrunners do for Livestreams/Videos. The only thing we dont accept is using video edition to cut time.

Can i use a TAS on the speedrun?
Absolutely NOT! Using a bot in Cubic Castles is allready ilegal. Also it has to be a human to complete the speedrun.

Can I start practicing the Speedrun?

Of course you can! But don't froget than we only accept Speedruns from the dates below.

Event Start: 01/01/2018

    Great ideas! I hope this'll attract more people into getting back to the game. I normally don't make videos but let's see what I can do for this.

    Is there a reason why it starts on the first of January? I mean the end date can be the same IMO. I'm interested in the event, sounds fun. :P

    er....
    for the man is an island is kinda unfair...

    someone can get an alt and their main and let their alt join their clan.

    And how's that unfair?
    Finding a clan thats recruiting players is hard nowadays

    well i could do just that, and immediately finish the quest away,
    maybe some people dont have alts to do that, and its unfair.
    maybe just omit the man is island quest.

    This is to avoid Christmas events, and also January is a perfect month to buy cubits XD

    I don't know if I will keep this quest. Even if it's hard to find a clan, without this quest done, you can't make progress to the next quests. Also this will be a game changing to everyone durning the run, making it one of the hardest parts in the speedrun.

    Do we have to start from the tutorial room? Or can we start right outside the realm?

    As I said in the rules, you have to start a new account for each run you will record, so you start from zero. The tries are unlimited, unless you can't create more accounts.

    By starting from zero, does adding your main account go against that?

    Of course. Take any Speedrun for example. (Tip: Sreach on YouTube). Also you dont need to put password or anything. Just record the rud with a temporary account.

    Can i make a video now and post it on those assigned dates

    No you can't. This is to give players time to practice their runs. You can make videos or livestreams of your practices, but they only will be an entry if you do it in January.

    Yes you can't. That would be unfair to the participants who are trying to practice.

    Yes to the 1st question and no on the second. You can use yre friends to help u out for the clan quest, but not for anything else.
