  • Yurimaster had his first time to judge, and in doing so, he did not round to the nearest quarter. This actually produced the smallest margin between places possible, only ONE HUNDRETH between Doram and Volkove! The first-to-second margin was also only 0.05 points, the second smallest in history, and it came from MoD himself who gave a 17.5 to Nwolf instead of an originally intended 17.25. Another ironic reference to the even closer results in the 16th LDC is that Sympathy for the Devil is Destination's sequel.
  • Also Yuri was supposed to be only backup at first, but became full judge after Mega's dropout, and after people waiting for him to finish, right before the results, he made a small dramaspace prank and said "Damnit I need to make a sig to make this drama space after the false sig". Therefore he indeed got a sigbar by MoD which can be still seen in his sig.
  • Sympathy for the Devil is the first entrant with a hidden bonus level that was not put in the Vault, but had to be find by a link in one of the level's signs. This procedure MoD repeated in the 27th LDC, with not much hiding but with even two further levels.
  • Furthermore, the trophies and ribbons were redesigned by Star king, and handed out for the first time in this LDC (and the old medals being changed as well of course).
  • MP3 finished her 7th place entrant into the Mario and Luigi's Great Escape series and it placed 4th in the WITBLO13.
