Where is TG Editorial on this one?

This is the type of story that TG Editorial should be picking up and running with. This is the type of thing that the core TG user base is interested in.

    TG should be falling all over themselves to get this person to get their score registered here. Both parties would benefit from the promotion.

    Agreed-that was awesome!


    Not many people get to beat a TAS-I only sorta know what that means, but I've beat one, Snoopy Silly Sports(fitting)on NES...


    Looks like one for me or @Fly to give an honest go on!!!

    :P

    TG front page isn't about any competition that come close to what Twin Galaxies is about. Maybe if TG editorial did talk actually about what TG is supposed to be, Maybe Ludwig would submit his score here. But I'm pretty sure he won't.

    The old refs of Twin Galaxies didn't even setup the track. [insert lost on "price is right" music/sound FX]

    You wouldn't say, Hmmmm. Maybe Twin Galaxies editorial should be ran by maybe the community? No that's impossible, or illogical. :)

    Nice job Ludwig!


    Roger would get 210 Left-Handed, and Fly would get 225.


    I'm getting off topic; but it's a great reason for keeping the communication forums going.

    My guess is "editorial" has been contracted and paid do deliver X number of e-sports articles over Y period of months. That money will dry up soon and there won't be an editorial.

    It was never about the TG community.

    Not gonna lie-at times, I think you are controversial just for the sake of it(doesn't affect you being my friend), but as much as I love TG, and don't wanna "make waves" with the powers that be...

    Yeah, that's pretty much it. Buncha useless crap, that probably cost a lot of money, big, big waste...

    I enjoy energetic conversations. If that is controversy, I'll accept that.

    That's not generic e-sports news.

    I joined in on his Twitter announcement after I was tagged there. A few if us discussed what our score might be. We concluded that he was average. A couple guys even posted better scores just a couple hours after his. And I'm faster than those as well. To top it off, I am not the fastest. He is just the self proclaimed fastest masher and sources picked up on 'fastest masher '. Not that he made the claim with no proof.

    I don't have the modded rom or cart like his so I did a 5 second trial instead of 10 seconds. I got 125. That's 25 a second. Faster than him, but i wouldn't say I'm the fastest.
