Warning: When making decisions, I try to collect as much data as possible before actually deciding. I try to abstract away and see the principles behind real world events and people's opinions. I try to generalize them and turn into something clear and reusable. I hate depending on unpredictable and having to make lottery guesses. Any problem can be solved by systems thinking and acting.

I recently discovered that if you haven't reached a level of frustration with TASing any game, then you haven't done your due diligence. ---- SOYZA: Are you playing a game? NYMX: I'm not playing a game, I'm TASing. SOYZA: Oh...so its not a game...Its for real? ---- Anybody got a Quantum computer I can borrow for 20 minutes? Nevermind...eien's 64 core machine will do. :) ---- BOTing will be the end of all games. --NYMX

berrimeow I never though my clumsy TAS would make someone join the community and do effort. Thank you very much! OtakuTAS Nominating by the request of the author just as a consolation despite the list of game not being good enough to compete with others.
TASing is like making a film: only the best takes are shown in the final movie.

Tuffcracker. Absolute beast of a TASer. I will always look up to him. He's an inspiring Rookie TASer. rodonic01 A brilliant and intelligent TASer I have met since 2022/2023. I believe he deserves a vote as well. Takz15x and Shining Prodigy. Good Team work. That's all I can say.

Lots of new TASers caught my attention, so I'll split my nominations into two groups. Heavy hitters: JHolleworth Tuffcracker These folks came in with some really fantastic TASes out of the gate and I foresee that continuing from here. Specialized focus: DigitalDuck longbao Mikewillplays NemoRuby PearlASE SJ tom_mai78101 ZoroarkGX These folks brought in TASes that focus on a certain flavor to them. Whether it be game type, end goal, or system choice I can expect some good work from them. Big potential authors: Akiteru Captain_Forehead EnderOnryo McKniggediKnack Merl_ Here are some folks that to me seem like folks who could really bring some fantastic stuff in the future if they keep at it with TASing.
