DK Barrel Boards - Don't let this happen to you
« on: September 29, 2014, 05:36:40 am »
After the bottom hammer expires, it's usually a good idea to reach the 5th girder as quickly as possible.  There are several reasons, and this is one of them:

I didn't die, but I probably should have.

Scott, that was awesome!  I never expected to see you go back down to the bottom girder like that; it was a pleasant surprise.  At least  <Tim> can't say that the wild barrels were "conspicuously absent" from your performance  <stirpot>

but seriously, way to keep it together there, that screen was pure madness  Kreygasm

Apparently, some lessons take a while to learn:

There are smarter ways of handling the barrel board transition.  Trust me.

Damn..that was crazy...you almost had an oppurtunity to have 5 blue hits with the upper hammer, not sure if that has ever been done.
