Cradle Dark LTK 0:51 by Eric Liikala
- Achieved: 5 January 2020
- System: NTSC
- Rank: 1st (100 points)
After ~6 years of playing, my first GE LTK untied! This is also my second top 10 GE LTK LSU slay, which also slays the current #4 LSU having stood since 2011. Now I have a huge WR box all to myself. :)
Bozon's 0:55 was one of the strongest records, but after modern strats were discovered, faster runs and more completions became possible. It's still a huge lottery and after a combined ~90 hours between Bozon, Flicker, and myself, the only completion was my 1:00 which had a very slow start.
Since revisiting, I fine-tuned some more details to help with speed and completion chances, but it's still abysmal. I've put in another ~35 hours, and this was the only A+B completion, the third ever. Fortunately, it happened on a fast run, although I got a little stuck at the end.
There's still some meat left as I have also failed 0:49 twice, which you can see here:

Very happy to get this time! I don't think I'll ever play this level again unless more new strategies come out.
