Damn. I’ve been inactive for more than 3 months and now you guys are talking about a new gauntlet??


DreadCore_

For 2.2. Contest has been running for over a year at this point, announced sometime last summer.


Master-Friendship-60

Good to know. Thanks


woomiesarefun

I’m more mad about lutetia, can we expand the expansion to 15 levels please?


TheAJasonT

it’s a contest not everything has to win


Kyrgo

Is there even 15 levels


woomiesarefun

The 10 mentioned+Russia, France, Indonesia, Canada, Vietnam


Tasty_Mc_Chicken

I’m a little disappointed Canada didn’t win as I’m from there, but good efforts all around. Plus Koenigstien won and I’m part German so still a W.


woomiesarefun

im chinese and xanadu got 7th and i am still malding


thecultistguy

Don’t forget mexico 💀


woomiesarefun

yeah theres more, including philippines and everything i just listed 15 out of the many

dontSWEAR_NSFWISBAD

KOiJ iS mAaAAd!!!1!1!1!!1


Vedertesu

There are probably over 30 levels, and many of them didn't get any recognition at all (like Finland's entry)


Notladub

There are 32 iirc


QJPanda

Done!


TheAJasonT

wish granted


KingEnnard

they did


MasterDivine

They did. They announced it in the discord server


Wh1t3bl4d3

A few hours later


real_flyingduck91

#news in the gd discord, it's been changed to 15 levels & lutetia+bismarck is there


dontSWEAR_NSFWISBAD

3 worlds no worrys


oni_kyo

Lol


PoliwagPi4554

never heard of it but looks sick, sad


Itzspace4224

Quality wise I think its easily top 3 ​ But it kinda makes sense cause this is a "childrens game" and bismarck is war themed


loquatus

I think the reason it isn't in is because it is a medium demon. the maximum difficulty was easy demon.


Kalepoggerssmolbad

there was a medium in the demon gauntlet i think


Credix03

Asadal got in and it's a medium demon


syrup_gd

It honestly feels like an easy demon

Guyyoudontknow18

blaming russia as a country for something putin has done isn't fair


SomeSortOfSans

Yeah, Putin himself committed all war crimes in Ukraine. Absolutely.


-Villion-

Yes he did. Soldiers follow orders even if they know they’re wrong because they’re afraid of getting punished for being a traitor.


SomeSortOfSans

Yes. Killing civilians and raping underage girls was also following orders, right?


PlutoniumGod

>Yes. Killing civilians and raping underage girls was also following orders, right? You can't say that all soldiers are like that. There are plenty of good people who joined the military to serve their country, not to commit war crimes.


SomeSortOfSans

Each one of russians (that live in Russia) support war. Even if they seem liberal, every "good" russian breaks on questions like "Is krimea Ukraine" or "Do you support Putin". Even if you don't kill or rape but you support killing and raping, you are not better than them.


PlutoniumGod

Not all Russians support the war. In fact, many Russians are against the war and are protesting against Putin.


SomeSortOfSans

15000 russians has been arrested in anti war protests. From 140000000 that was actively sitting at their homes saying "war bad" and "we can't do anything with Putin, he is big and strong, we are weak". What can i say? They are just slaves that are programmed to hate ukrainians. Thats why there are so many pro-Putinists (about 95% of russians)


matahbey93

You can't say that to everyone literally, blaming the whole military is wrong bruh


SomeSortOfSans

Whole military that is present in Ukraine bombs houses where innocent people live in, kills these people. Nearly all people in Russia support soldiers killing civilians and give them money. You can and must blame not only whole military but the whole country in war they started!


-Villion-

Then tell me this. Do you believe the war in Afghanistan was to protect democracy?


SomeSortOfSans

No. I don't really know anything about Afghanistan and it all seems to be about money. But I live in Lviv, Ukraine, near Poland border. Some of my friend's dads and brothers went to war to protect their country. I understand every single bit of russians propaganda and just russian comments under videos I watch. This hurts seeing so much war support from people and even more people who say it's only Putin's fault. I am ready to sacrifice some of my karma to tell everyone about it. And I hope some of my words will eventually come to someone's heart. Slava ukraini


PACTAMAH_C_POCTOBA

How is it relatable to WGC?


Its_Prisma

I mean... Couldn't they have chosen a theme OTHER than war???? Like Down Unda, Lutetia, and others made it about what it's like in their countries.


PACTAMAH_C_POCTOBA

Fair point, but The Second World War, and especially The Great Patriotic War playing a massive role in Russian culture and it's being one of the biggest cultural phenomeons in our country.


syperdima

The host is from Ukraine bro 💀


Salladsbladgang

Its a bit unpolished, and people were complaining about the ldm, although they may have fixed that.

NotHeco

...which isn't rated?

[удалено]


StanzerthePanzer

What? That's like not even related. Peaceful isn't a gauntlet contest submission.


uhmilysm

The best levels didn't get in because they're medium demons from what I've heard. It was in the rules to make them easy demon or 9 star. I think it's extremely stupid, but I'm just relaying the information I've heard.


DreadCore_

Lutetia is like half easy demon half hard demon. It's style of gameplay scales SUPER hard with speed, and unlick with Bismarck, doesn't scale orbs or timings or anything, so the fast parts are way brutal.


Nothombium

i never liked it too much to begin with, and with the war and stuff it was pretty obviously not gonna win. Lutetia tho :(


syperdima

Both levels made it in, but I just don't get it, why every war has to be associated with the Ukrainian one? It's literally named "Bismarck", I thought there was no way someone would think about the current events when they see this level. If people just dislike the idea of "a war themed level by Russians"... the host is from Ukraine 💀


FathomTheFourteenth

I think lutetia’s gameplay might be what dragged that one down, not many people like it


Nothombium

maybe, i thought it was fine though. Asadal's gp was worse imo (i still adore that level)


Explosivesguy2

Kind of curious why people don’t like the gameplay aspect? It felt like the most consistent gameplay of the levels I played in the gauntlet.


ZthundR

The gameplay is impossible to sightread, really confusing, has many orb based sections that make it inconsistent... And the gameplay got approved by a top 10 Stargrinder... Even a French like me have to admit, this is really deceiving


Explosivesguy2

I just went in practice mode to know when to click. It didnt take too long because the level likes to pretend you need to click a lot when you actually have to make relatively few timed clicks, none of which had a small window except for the ufo transition.


SomeoneWhoLikesAmeme

Lutetia literally made it in and bismarck too


Nothombium

Yep 💀


Its_Prisma

Yeah but... How in the everliving fuck did PABRIK not win???


lonelyterrarian

I’m very upset, especially that America got two levels I thought it was one per country? Lutetia and Bismarck were much more deserving of one of those spots bruh


StanzerthePanzer

One per country was never a rule, but I agree with the point you're making.


lonelyterrarian

Ah my bad, I thought I remembered seeing that one per nation was a rule. I feel like it should be.


StanzerthePanzer

I agree, it should have been, but at least there aren't two from the same country in the same gauntlet together.


lonelyterrarian

Luckily they just decided to add a third gauntlet which the top 15 will be in, so I guess the protesting worked


StanzerthePanzer

Wait really? That's so great!


lonelyterrarian

Yep! They must’ve gotten some backlash or something so now there’s the World Gauntlet, the Galaxy Gauntlet, and the Universe Gauntlet


FieryFlame129

Apparently they even got death threats about it


lonelyterrarian

Damn, I was upset about it but death threats is taking it way too far. Kinda weird what things people will send death threats over.


oni_kyo

Oh fuck, we're slowly turning into MHA fandom


Lazy-Cress8152

The biggest disappointment in the game. Bismarck is fun, beautiful and has more effort then 99% of modern levels. And the war theme is great as well.


Snoo-8876

The fact that nivel made it but Bismarck didn’t:


oni_kyo

Nivel is good


SkyblockGamer101

Pabrik is the 1 I'm sad about

StanzerthePanzer

I think people are forgetting that this is a contest with way more level entries than can be fit into a gauntlet. Not everyone is going to agree with which levels should be selected and which ones shouldn't be. A level's beauty and gameplay are subjective, and there will never be a unanimous community agreement. Just be happy that such beautiful levels were made, like the ones you like, and respect other people's opinions. There is no reason to be angry over the selections.


Phan7umix

Smile because it happened


Charming_Amphibian91

The level is still incredible.


Filipogem_YT

My brain is trying to process if pabrik was for gaunlet or not bc i feel like it should of been there


i-do-not-k

It was, didn't get picked somehow


Filipogem_YT

Like they literally made something like castlemania and it didnt even got top 10 like comon


Filipogem_YT

Ok nevermind there will be third gaunlet where it will be placed lmao


fireflyye

yeah and nivel gets 7?


Ex-Thunder

In my opinion bismarck and xin chao should be in top 10


cirrus_04

its good but my opinion on it got heavily tainted by people that cant stop bitching about it on social media its good, it didnt make it in. it really doesnt have to go as far to the point that you have to bring up racism


QJPanda

Just got changed and now it’s included


MarekMC_888

that aged line milk


potato_and_nutella

It made it in :)


Trendisty

Its in the 3rd new gauntlet everyone calm down!


FathomTheFourteenth

war theme, made by a country that’s kind of at fault for a current war. that’s likely why it didn’t make it


TimfeyMC

Half of creators including the host are Ukrainians


FathomTheFourteenth

fuck I got nothing but thanks for telling me though


45clover

I think its because it has 98k objects with no ldm.


FathomTheFourteenth

Nah it’s got an ldm and uldm toggleable at the start of the level


45clover

oh, well it might also be the completely unreadable gameplay and the fact its a medium demon.


i-do-not-k

Xanadu and Asadal are both medium demons and they got picked so it's not that


45clover

ok then wtf


Notladub

The theme, probably. It's too violent for being pronoted heavily in a kids game.


oni_kyo

Well that was unexpected tbh


TwiIightster

Probably because of Russia's current state. It can't be because of difficulty, there are already hard demons in a few gauntlets.


JeneralGD

True, but the specific rule for the world gauntlet contest was easy demon max.


Fischfucklicker

What ones did?


Ultamik3y

Gameplay was fucking wack


Ph4n1om

All I’ll say is that the comment section on the level is a dumpster fire right now


The_Dank_Tortuga

People aren't gonna like this... But man I don't like this level. It's mainly the fast explosion parts that just look unpleasant. The beginning and the end are awesome, but the entire middle just kills it for me. I'm glad it didn't make it in.


DaRealMrPicklesYT

I don't care, all the levels were good and there were a lot that didn't make it in. We all expected there to be 5 spots, we're lucky we got 10, and no matter what, some of the levels we liked wouldn't be in either of the gauntlets. The places were based on opinion and so it was obvious from the start this was going to happen, it's useless to argue.


Cobalt_Gaming

bro this, lutetia and pabrik totally deserved a spot. if i had to choose one, pabrik. honestly bullshit how pabrik didn’t get a win, but what’s stupider is how usa got two entries in


Tasty_Mc_Chicken

Planet X deserved the entry but the other one didn’t.


Cobalt_Gaming

agreed, planet x was crazy good


Tasty_Mc_Chicken

I am personally not too sad to see it wasn’t included because I’m not good enough to beat it anyway. But what do you guys think?


derpderpderpey

What gauntlet


Kyrgo

World gauntlet


derpderpderpey

Ok thx


tlep765

they were pretty strict with the difficulty in this gauntlet. Pabrik, Bismarck, and lutetia all likely would've gotten in if they were easier


maplebacon8792

Have you played it, it has shit gameplay and constant blind jumps


ImSkysock

i think we all already know that the gd higher-ups are stupid, talentless and biased. not even surprised. L gauntlet


LeBadlyNamedRedditor

I believe its because of lag that it didnt get in


GuitarLover504

L


45clover

Its most likely because it doesnt have an ldm at all.


SaltOk6642

It does at the start I believe


[deleted]

[удалено]


Itzspace4224

It does lmao You can select ultra and ldm by tapping in the first few seconds pay attention to bottom left


Sssssssz

the ldm is so bad its like it doesnt exist


ATAXAM

JTB51021

Did königstein get in?


MeneerValk

Yes, at #3


Begine315

it looked too hard so it was unlikely anyway


b0ks_GD

Would have loved it tho


coffeandtoast

Why did I think this was a whole different game


HCXEthan

There were just way too many high quality submissions. As much as I liked it, it came in 11th, and Viprin stated that 8-13th were all incredibly close and were practically interchangeable. I can see it's current position. That being said, I now have 10 new levels to add to my list of top 15 favourite art levels, and I didn't even know I had a top 15 favourite art levels before this.


nintendomasters

its a medium demon, it has to be 2\* to easy demon


QJPanda

Well now it’s included


MadenSuyu1

It didnt fit the theme well.


Trendisty

it got included in the 3rd gauntlet anyways


HD_Neptune

now it did


DeadVoxelx

Now it's making it in lol


The_Soviet_Onion_321

Good news


SomeoneWhoLikesAmeme

Bismarck made it in though


Daewee

it did


ScrapzGD

im just happy australia got in. but i feel bad for the effort those creators put in just to be turned down.


Trendisty

They all got included dont worry a third gauntlet is being added


ScrapzGD

thank fuck dude i didnt want all that effort to just pop out of existence


ztater_

it's... still rated...?


ScrapzGD

fair point


Zgeled

How tf do you guys connect politics and square game💀


CGYTGaming

Aged like Crazen


Salabdul81

it was expanded to 15 now bismarks getting in


ztater_

it doesn't deserve to be


Snoo-8876

Pretty disappointed. Bismarck was legit the best level there but I see why viprin didn’t put it in as it’s based on an historical event


Nick_y3

Well, I liked the level, but there is nothing to do until it gets on the weekly as Ruta del Sol, that on the contrary, it got first on the top


MrEldo

Welp, this post is outdated now


OddAd9043

I think that the levels shouldn't be ranked in the first place. This will just lead to people arguing over the positions of the levels. They are all great in my opinion.


SloughtyOG

Wtf, how


TF2Enjoyer

Silly russkiy


bigmanwithnolife

Ok


Youlookatmynick

I didn't like the fact that this is the World Gauntlet but USA have two wins


Bekeroo

ok help


Bolt_Viper

Bismarck Is awesome how???


ComfortableTwo7793

CRY


ToasterBath53

Should have been #1 IMO


Silverado_21

I really wanted Canada to make it in


vvnx1

My thoughts are don't bully and threaten viprin over something as dumb as this!


LiebeDahlia

Midmarck


Sssssssz

prob its difficulty and the fact that it lags way too much.


Ex-Thunder

It's only medium demon difficulty and it's not that laggy


Sssssssz

yeah but apparently medium demon is too hard. maybe it doesnt lag for you but its unplayabe for me


Ex-Thunder

Well I have a very low end pc and phone


Sssssssz

not as bad as mine then. oh well hopefully 2.2 optimizes the game so everyone can play without lag


Trendisty

it got added anyways


some_random_nerd1142

It's a medium demon lmao
