Over the last few years I’ve picked up and dropped Dustforce several times. I always tried to top my own times and utilize a few improved strategies, but I never got too deeply into it. I would marvel at the top replay’s perfection, it was unrecognizable from my own play. The minute optimizations flew right over my head, all I could understand was pure speed. I thought macros would be required to play at such a level, so I wrote it off as not really worth it. Eventually though, I looked deeper into it, which opened pandora’s box.
