How fast can you run Fastest Game on Ice?
 
As the title says, if anyone has ever timed their runs of Fastest Game on Ice, what is your fastest time, as measured from when your character starts moving (this can sometimes happen before the official "GO!" announcement) and you receive the "WIN!" announcement?

I seem to be pushing my limit at 1 minute 16 seconds. I'm already cutting corners and (ab)using the combat roll, and I doubt I'll get much faster than around 1 min 15 seconds. Anyone able to beat this?

I usually beat the NPC opponent of the guy who started before me, when I start ASAP after him. Sometimes I'm also able to beat him.
But honestly, I don't try to make a rush or something, I do this race on 4 characters every day, and it's been like the 12-13 times, so it's pretty boring, and I usually think of something else when I do the race.

Just over a minute. I can usually pass anybody within sight when I start. It seems to be the one thing I'm particularly good at in this game, despite the fact that I can't consistently use the jump-stop :confused:

You've got me beat. My best timed run was a pathetic 1 minute, 48 seconds.

I am running it on 9 alts right now x 15 runs each so far

that means I have done this stupid thing 135+ times

the FASTER i get it over with the better as my sanity is quickly slipping away:eek:

Boys you are good. My best time is 2:15. Now I don't jump or roll and I try to stay on the track, no cutting corners.

I do win the Fast and Flurrious regularly, so my technic should be fine.

1min 13sec is my top time.

I run the races daily with 46 toons for the Q pics.

I learned to run these races from the previous winter event, and running it soo much I've learned to become a pro.

My slowest time though is around 2min - so it all depends on the mood I am in, also the races iat times are affected by server latency etc...

Total time per day on a smooth day, around an hour

Total time per day w/latency, load times, lag - also side events, around 3hrs

Though after the runs I stop playing, 46runs kinda burns me out - I am almost done, most of my toons have Q Pics x740 as of 12/24/2012

im running the race with 5 toons and those with the ice shoes run it in 1,20 min ~ 1,40 min.
those without shoes run it in 1,30 min ~ 1,50 min
depending how well i cut the lanes or i get slowed. by bad rolls or such.


though!! i've seen a guy doing it with some sort of "bunny hops" and BEFORE i got the message: "entering the final stretch" he passed me.

that guy must be running it surely in under 1 min.

I usually do 1:20 or so but never picked up ice shoes. Do they help?
