Here’s a cut-n-paste.

The strategy thats used in the video was influenced and created by MANY many smart and good players. Below I will be crediting who contributed to what. Other than that this run relied on both RNG and skill, for some people. For me, I had a few tricks up my sleeve, which made this run less RNG and more getting a rhythm down. Unlike others I figured out how to control the vessel, which was the thing that screwed people the most. Along with Textbook_1987, I decided to kill the Shade instead of cheesing it, unlike every single other person. In my opinion, the run itself takes a decent amount of skill. A lot of people were attempting this at the same time. The people who I know were attempting this are as follows; sc_slayerage (for a while), tfue, Textbook_1987, ADeathCard, CommanderCuesta, Shadowfax182, and Scardrow.
