But NOW the leaderboards on Torn Canyon with the Donkey on Android HAVE updated, which is much better! So the number of players there the last time I saw it was 331, NOT 35, and I'm #2 there. No guesses to who is #1 haha! Torn Canyon wasn't the only track which had jumbled up times either, there were a few tracks which were like that as well, in-fact, even the Global leaderboard has been re-scrambled.

Cool, finally Torn Canyon is displaying the LB like it should, thanks for the heads up. I also noticed i went from around 120 on global LB to 150, so yea RL has done something with the LB. Not sure if we can call it a recalculation but at least things seem to be more normal.

Merry christmas :)

@heaverbeaver115 His ride is something like this with this flip in the middle. Just he has very fast start as I remember with no airtime at all.

And this is from Bunker form last season :)

And one improvement, as my last Quagmire video was pretty leggy, and 2 sec. slower.

@lesorsier: Very solid run on Exile Pass. Barely getting any airtime on Exile Pass is a good thing, it means you can accelerate straight away. The wheel with the explosive at the end in the middle of the track, I was curious at first on which is the best method, I originally tried going in the air, but I felt that it wasn't a successful method and there was too much time wasted in the air, so then I landed on the wheel then onto the next platform, I felt more comfortable doing that method, and the success rate was much better and I think there is less airtime imo. However, the bounce after that is tricky, and then trying to do the last set of obstacles is also quite tricky too.

As for Garbage Route, I was surprised you took the alternative route, I normally go the bottom route instead, but it seems to me that either route is just as quick, but I'm not sure which is quicker...

I'll look at Lost Descent once I've got it from the end of the 'extended' 1st leg, or if I get all of the track pieces via the loot wheel, but I'm pretty much all done from the 1st leg and cba to do anymore, so I might wait it out here for another 5 days or so...

Cold Cut Corner is all done nicely, to me the last obstacle is a pain, because it's harder than it looks but it also feels like the ground there is quite slippery..? So it makes it harder to perform the last obstacle, or it could be me. It also doesn't help that I have had speed issues as well... Doesn't look like you encountered any speed issues...

And finally, The Quagmire, again haha. The start where you just go onto the mushroom without the forward flip is sweet, was that planned or a coincidence, but it still looked effortless, but that's also not easy to do, and it's very nice to see. Quick time as well, but nothing wrong with having another go on a tricky track like this.

Anyway, it has been a while since I've posted here so I thought I'd say hi. That new iPad of yours looks like it's doing the trick! :) Anyway, I have made videos myself as I mentioned in my previous post on here but I just haven't posted them on YT yet because of other things and I'm still not satisfied with the quality of my videos, which is the main reason, of course I have the footage, but the quality is just inadequate by my standards so I'm actually a little worried about posting them for that reason, since everyone else's videos looks more decent than mine, which does put me off. But I dunno, maybe I should just post it on YT for the sake of it, haha! :D

Cheers. :)

@ HeaverBeaver115: Alternative route for Garbage Route looks better, and it's much harder...it's for the show. :) is it faster? bhe,,, maybe ;)
On CCC, bigger problem is good start then ending, at least for me.

Quagmire should be started with a front flip??? ;) if it's easier, @#@#$ nobody told me,.. I always start like in the video,.. ;)

About videos, you have to start from somewhere. If you record some extraordinary ride, nobody will care about quality.

And this is the new track from 2nd week of the event. Got it today. Not sure about the route, just made the video in case this track disappear too at the end of the week or with the new update,. ;)

About videos, you have to start from somewhere. If you record some extraordinary ride, nobody will care about quality.

Wait. you never knew that The Quagmire had to be done with a forward flip? The reason for that is because the Donkey normally doesn't make it like the Berserker, so the forward flip is improvisation, so when you do it, you land on your back wheel and it makes it devilishly awkward afterwards, however the method you did is much better, but it's extremely difficult to pull off, so getting that in a video is excellent stuff, so huge credit to you there.

The quality of my Donkey runs/videos is always good but the screen quality is lacking significantly to my standards, however as you said I'm only starting out so I'm trying to find better methods so I can make better videos.

Anyway, as for Peaceful Pummel, very nice run there, however it's not a Donkey track, it feels like an awkward track to ride on.

And, Coal Town, I must say, I'm impressed by this, 2 consecutive extreme time-savers in 1 run, it's easily one of the most impressive things I've seen on the Frontier, that's seriously good, I've even tried doing that with no success at all. Truly exceptional. :D

As for Dark Smoke, I'll take a look later on it because I... don't have it. For the 1st time since playing this game, I'm playing catch-up on tracks. I didn't get 10 track pieces in that Leg, I didn't even get 1 track piece on the loot wheel at all and wasn't motivated to use gems and I didn't have enough time to use those gems in the end when I wanted to, so I'm waiting to get some track pieces when I can.

And Plant Food. so many routes, I believe the route you've done is the quickest, but during the event I went through the pipe at the start because I thought that might have been quicker, but it's a good run too, and I need to do that track still.

And, lastly, I had an incident involving the videos I made, I lost them all. :( At that point I made 20 then, about 2 to 3 weeks ago and gone. The footage for the videos isn't lost, so I can make them again, it's just I have to put in the effort again. Which meant that it has caused a heavy delay of me eventually putting those videos on YT. I also haven't been on the forums properly in a while either so I just wanted to say hi.

Cheers. :)

@HeaverBeaver115 Nope, I never even tired front flip, I play quagmire like in the video in the Bunker also.

Thanks for Coal Town, I spent lot of time to make it. Sorry to hear you lost your videos. Happened to me also, but after that I always made better ones, so keep trying :)


05-30-2017, 07:12 PM
Just to protest for diamonds I spent to get this track ;)


06-19-2017, 09:10 PM
This on is tricky ;)


09-28-2018, 04:14 AM

11-01-2018, 09:58 PM

Hey lesorsier,

Awesome videos! Thanks for sharing your experience with the event with the community! :D

Pretty awesome collection of platinum rides there. I myself tried to get them all Platinumed as well. Recently been practcing donkey a lot, 2 days ago finally dared to retry widowmaker, then i did rabbit hell. Today Woodwork conclave. Gotta say. Thats the hardest ****ing jump ever!!! Got platinum, took a few hours in total tho. :O
3 tracks left. (Of those that i own anyway)

Quagmire (Should be doable)
Snow Alley
The Switchblade... (Prob the hardest of all)

01-04-2020, 01:42 AM
Quagmire done now too. That was for me the hardest.
Switchblade and Snow alley... lets just say the are a league of their own in difficulty (donkey+plat)
