I was simply exaggerating. No, I don't hate you. I do not respect the score you obtained on LB1-STK, however.
The reason you would need to retry on EH is because of a player mistake. The boring part isn't a factor, either, or else all of the 3-D games would be banned too, amirite? The point is that it's not skillful. You sit there, spindash for 9 minutes (faster if you use an emulator and frame skip EDIT: apparently that's just wayy too good and unfair to those who don't use emulators, so nvm), and then use the zip for Sonic and Knuckles. For Tails, you do have to do some actual TAing, but it's still stupidness. Considering I'm ranked 3rd for Sonic, 2nd for Tails, and 2nd for Knuckles in Times, this really isn't a problem for me to do. In fact, I've gotten 2334200 with Knuckles and 2344200 with Sonic (he's faster against the boss with a higher jump & his insta-shield attack). I haven't even tried with Tails yet, but I'm pretty sure I can get over 2 million EDIT: 2043700 with Tails. 96 rings. I don't want to submit these stats because it's stupid and if competition really ends up being a matter of who can spindash for the longest while still finishing the level, then what kind of competition site is this?
Yes, you legitimately obtain that score in-game, but we don't let people hit the signpost infinitely, or finish at 9:59, do we? No, we don't. Why is this so special of a case?
I suppose I'm being all scrubby or something, but this is my view. Normally I really don't care about what's used (zips, the time-stop and various zips required for LB2R-T, etc.) to obtain stats, but this crosses the line in my opinion.
And I'm not going to "hold my peace" on this because I didn't beforehand, either.
EDIT: Btw, LB2 was a typo since I was typing on my iPod <__<
