Being the first Final Fantasy, it is only natural that it is the shortest game of the series! But did you know that the game has been beaten in times as fast as 5 hours? Indeed with proper strategy, skill, and memory this game can easily be beaten in one (fairly long) sitting! Olympians, bring honor and glory to your respective FF by beating FFI the fastest of all EoFFers! In order to have your time qualify you must post a picture of you right after you are done choosing your team, and a picture of your final time right before Chaos. This will make you eligible for the first Gold medal of this event. BUT! There are two, that medal is for the fastest time and can be won even after someone else has finished, if you finished faster. Being the first to post a picture of your team defeating Chaos awards a DIFFERENT gold medal, for first to beat Chaos! For this event you'll have a whopping 15 days to finish the game! After that times are finalized and a winner is announced!




Fastest Times:








First to Kill Chaos Medal Winner:






​Let the best man (or woman) win!

...ROM? :p Part of the game though, best team should be the best at all the FF's :p Hopefully some team members will make up for you

We have about two other people on our time, Boob's :laughing: I've only ever started this game, never finished it.

Edit: Oh! 15 Days to do this. Hmmm....

Edit 2 because double posting is bad: A few questions: Can only one person from each team compete in an event or can we all individually aim for medals? Also, do you want us to post the first image of us starting the game right away or at the end?

Pfft yeah, with a Game Genie. I spend more time than that grinding before going into the Marsh Cave.

So in the middle of Eyes on Plays FFX, you want me to speed run FFI? :mad2: Maybe I'll emulate this while watching football on Sunday.

Please, I know your entire purpose in creating this competition was to make my life as busy as possible. I'M ONTO YOUR GAME

Actually, this one I might have to pass on, unfortunately, even though I've been meaning to play FFI again. Someone should join me on the FFT team and do this challenge. :p

I can't really do this because I haven't completed the game yet. Sorry guys !

I got lost and can't really remember where to go or what to do and never really felt interested to keep on going.....

Update:

72 minutes in-game time
Just entered Earth Cavern
Level 14 all around
Face was KO'd in one battle so is roughly one battle behind in the levelling up
Equipment is costing me almost nil thanks to chests and Monks
Magic is only real outlay except for Inns and Antidotes thus far

There is no way I can beat Chaos right now, but here is my start and arrived at Chaos time:

Unfortunately Tifa's Boobs did not survive the poison gas attack from Tiamat. I smurfing hate that guy :mad:

Well done! Team FFIX on the board!

Jiro
10-02-2012, 01:07 PM
smurf I have to make every second count I guess

EDIT: pretty much smurfed. 2:45 game time in, but only just conquered the Earth Cavern. smurf.

It doesn't matter how long it takes Jiro, just get your time in! Any points are better than no points!

Goldenboko
10-02-2012, 05:25 PM
This is true, reaching Chaos would get your team Silver, defeating him as Faris has not managed to do that yet, would yield a Gold medal!

Jiro
10-03-2012, 03:48 AM
Oh I'm going to see it through, it's just annoying that the Earth Cavern was so fucking hard. I don't have any target all magic for general damage - only Dia - and yet I keep getting hit with groups of 5-9 enemies all the fucking time. Stone is a whore of a status effect and why the fuck does sleeping at an inn not cure statuses? GODDAMMIT. I'll make it to the finish line, I swear to god.

Faris
10-03-2012, 04:37 AM
xD I feel your pain, what's worse is when you can't run from the hoards of the bird things that cause stone. Sometimes I would have to stop playing it for a while because I was getting so frustrated. We are so spoiled now in games with so many save opportunities too. Goodness. :irked:

It may not have the best time but I'll be tackling Choas again soon. AND MY WHITE MAGE BETTER NOT DIE AGAIN :mad2:

Huckleberry Quin
10-03-2012, 01:07 PM
I'm desperately trying to get somewhere near the end before the time limit. We need more points! :(

It's a good job I've only ever played this game up to the fire dungeon thing before, otherwise I might have some idea of what to do xD.

Jiro
10-03-2012, 11:07 PM
I know where to go most of the time but cannot fucking remember my way through any dungeon except the Chaos Shrine ;)

Jiro
10-04-2012, 09:06 AM
Maybe it's not as bad as I thought. 3:23 and I'm ready to take on the Ice Cavern. Tossing up whether to go for class upgrades or not. It would save me some time, but I don't know if Chaos is realistically defeatable. Is defeating Chaos first worth more than second in the race?

EDIT: 4:04 at the Sunken Shrine... Don't know if I can get to Chaos faster now. Managed to upgrade though, so if I keep going right now, I might just win the other gold medal.

Huckleberry Quin
10-04-2012, 10:19 AM
Quick! End the event here! :radred:

Jiro
10-04-2012, 10:56 AM
Time expired. Would've made it comfortably if my three attackers didn't start hitting single smurfing digits against the fiends.

EDIT: Nevermind Tiamat raped me. I'll try again.

Jiro
10-04-2012, 11:30 AM
Fucking hell. Was on fire that time and then Tiamat just wipes out three of my guys with Scourge. Can't come back from that. Time to try again. I was at 5:22 when I started that battle, which means 6 minutes to win and head down the stairs. MOTHERFUCKER.

Jiro
10-04-2012, 11:37 AM

Fuck man I need Masamune to beat Tiamat quickly but getting it takes too much time xD

Tool-assisted speedrun, thus, in this setting, invalid.

Jiro
10-04-2012, 12:48 PM
I knew someone was going to comment that :monster: I'm not going to buy a NES/PSX and a copy to play the game, so I used what was on hand.

Faris
10-04-2012, 01:10 PM
:<3: Your reactions.

*rolls up sleeve* Now I've got something to do tomorrow.

Gamblet
10-04-2012, 01:35 PM
Easymode has MP points instead of the limited use for a spell of each level?

Jiro
10-04-2012, 02:02 PM
Beating Chaos is pointless now :aimkiss:

Did you guys... tie in your time...?

Jiro
10-04-2012, 03:42 PM
For now. I expect Faris will try and stick it to me, but if time runs out, then Final Fantasy VI will receive its fair share of first place ;)

Goldenboko
10-04-2012, 03:44 PM
The fact you guys actually played through that whole game and finished with the exact same time is simply incredible.

Jiro
10-04-2012, 03:53 PM
I'm sure Faris is the same, but I can think of a dozen places where I could've saved a minute and that just causes me agony. :greenie:

I am now regretting the amount of times I had to add a minute or two to backtrack and pick up a spell.

I have never played this game before, what what :greenie:

Jiro
10-05-2012, 03:43 AM
You truly outplayed me here but it's all about what gets on the scoreboard :P I forgot to get the Warp Cube too, which didn't help me. And man the fucking random battles, I swear to god, way too common.

This event is ovah!
Overall Speed Gold Medal goes to Faris of team FFIX! Giving team FFIX a boost of 40 Points, for winning the hardest event in the Olympics! Silver goes to Jiro of FFVI! 20 points!
Jiro also gets an additional 15 points to FFVI for the Gold Medal for being the first to beat Chaos! Great job you two this was no easy goose to cook!

Jiro
10-06-2012, 03:09 AM
Forty points ffffffffuuuuuuuuu I should've given it another shot. No fucker can judge me though, I did what I could. Well done Faris, you're a true champion.

Faris
10-06-2012, 03:41 AM
Hats off to the defeater of Chaos, bringing in 35 points to their team as well. :) I wonder what would have happened if we stayed tied though.

I keep hearing this in my head. :bigsmile: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4pTejRBxSc)
