Fastest ever KS from sub 100k to their 1st ever Killscreen?
« on: September 24, 2017, 05:57:05 PM »
So, this question has probably been talked about/asked before at some point on these forums, but I wanted to rehash it.

Take any sub 100k player, from the moment they hit 100,100 to their 1st ever Killscreen, what is the shortest time in week/months that this feat was ever completed by a person?

I realize hours would be the best way to analyze this, since some players might have really grinded more than others, but alas I think its easier to realize in term of weeks/months despite this...

So here we go, everyone start weighing in!

I'm at just over 90k and have finally gotten around to save stating the level 4 elevator to learn the spring timing today, so 100k is now feasible pretty soon.  Based on my capabilities, I reckon it is reasonable that I might get a kill screen some time after the sun burns itself out.
Never ever bloody anything ever.

It's my understanding that Jeff Willms went from zero to KS in one month. He put in a lot of time during that month, but as far as I know, that's the quickest reported progress.

According to RU I broke 100k in October 2013 and kill screened 26 august 2014 so about 10 months with the first few playing sporadically.

Realistically I think most people should be able to do it in less than 6 months and certainly less than a year ( about a decade for <Allen> )

Of course depends how much time you invest and also if you actively learn off others who have done it before. Wouldn't recommend going it alone if you're wanting to get there as quickly as possible.

Jeez Barra mate, you've actually impressed me.

Willms in 4 or 5 weeks, Marky_D in 6 weeks.

Purchased my machine (personal best of 000,000) ~11/6/12 (November 2012) and my first KS was 3/3/13 (March 2013 89X,XXX) with roughly 5 weeks off, due to Hardware Issues.  I only dropped coins, no mame, no savestate learning, played on 6 man settings until a pb of around 350K then switched to 3 man.
