From top left, clockwise: Island Paradise Escape by Doram (6th place, 16.08/20), Sandy Soil in the Skylands by DarkBlaze (5th place, 16.21/20), Savage Labyrinth by Volkove (2nd place, 16.72/20), MMMMMM by Yoshi Boo 118 (4th place, 16.26/20), Fort Omniquet by nin10mode (3rd place, 16.33/20), Universitas Creaturarum Mirabilis by ~MP3 Amplifier~ (3rd place, 16.33/20). Winner (centre): Dark by MessengerOfDreams (18.16/20).
This LDC had absolutely no restrictions (except disallowing collabs), so we've got quite many miniseries and incredibly original levels, marvelously innovative puzzles like MMMMMM and Omniquet, or incredible block creatures like in MP3's Universitas, and it was claimed to be the most successful LDC thus far.
but over all these and the others, Dark shined with a staggering 18.16, the second highest score of all time. It was praised to be the perfection of a story, it is MoD's only solo gold, and it's his climax without any doubt. It was humurously debated if Kevin's perfect 20 score should be counted, which would have given MoD even a score of 18.53. However, 18.16 is the official winning score.
All runner-ups had a score in the 16's, with 6th and 3rd place being separated by only a quarter point. The 16.08 for Doram's Island Paradise Escape is the highest placing cut of all time. Besides, all placers except Universitas were entered into WITBLO12.
There was a lot of people being involved into judgings, 9 in total, due to the large amount of entries, some of them splitting on the bases of the Vault pages, or unable to load a few large entries etc. A major math TARFUN happened to Asterocrat, and all results had to be recalculated, causing some major changes in the placements.
