First of all I would like to give a big thanks to Looper, this would never have happened if
it wasn't for his efforts in the 30uv category. Looper managed to improve the Doom 2 record
to 23:25 back in 2010, the record stood for almost 4 years before I tried to replicate
what he did, with some adjustments, and managed to get 23:03. At the time I got 23:03
it was obvious that sub 23 wouldn't be too hard to get, and I imagined that a really solid run
would perhaps go under 22 minutes. A few months later Looper picked it up again and managed to get 21:55.
I have always been working on improving the route for 30uv since I started even
though I have been doing other runs as well, and I've also been practicing a lot for this run.
For example trying to improve my movement and ability to do tricks in a consistent matter.
After a lot of work I saw that getting below 21 minutes would actually be possible,
and after several attempts I managed to not only get below 21 minutes, but a time of 20:32,
a full 27 seconds faster than my goal. I really thought that this would be it for Doom 2 UV-Speed,
but Looper decided to go for sub 20 minutes, and I saw that perhaps it would be possible as well.
With some small adjustments several places in the route thanks to Looper and a ton of practice
I figured I would attempt to bring this time down a bit further :)
This has been one of the demos I have worked the hardest on, the last days I was so close
to achieving my goal of a time below 20 minutes. Sometimes you just have one of those days
where almost everything seems to go right, and today I was playing very well compared to
how I usually play. Earlier I failed several attempts on the episode 3 (map 21-30),
I kept on going because of how frequently I would reach the later maps of the run this day.
I then had some absolutely devastating runs which failed on the very last maps,
on 1 attempt I had gotten in a bit of trouble on map 28 where I failed to grab enough plasma ammo,
which forced me to use more rockets which cost me a lot of time. I then made a huge mistake by using
all my rockets on the cacodemons on map 29, because I needed 1 rocket to do the rocket jump.
I then managed to get 32 seconds on map 30, but the time was 20:00, a single second away from my goal.
Even though this was very frustrating I decided to continue due to my consistency today.
And what happened next is unbelievable, yet again I failed, this time on the very very last input I had to make.
A single frame was the difference between 19:53 and 20:06, I pressed fire 1 frame before I pressed move forward,
this could have still worked I think if I was standing closer to the edge of the platform like I usually try to do.
Needless to say, I am extremely happy to be able to now bring this time below 20 minutes,
especially today after my earlier failed attempts.
Since I started I have managed to get the following exits:
30uv2021, 30uv2019, 30uv2151, 30uv2117, 30uv2038, 30uv2016,
30uv2013, 30uv2013 (second time), 30uv2015, 30uv2006,
30uv2032 (same time as previous listed record), 30uv2000, 30uv2006 (second time).
