I'm siding with TeamPatrick on this one. While I think Dan has become an incredibly crafty SMM level creator, I think Patrick at this point is the better Mario player. Because Dan has to finish the level for it to be uploaded, and because Patrick is the better player of the game, he should be able to finish it as well.
The big wrinkle here is that Dan will be able to set up traps and puzzles that need to be cracked before they can be beaten but he has stated that he won't be using any bugs or unfair tricks in his level so with time, Patrick should be able to solve em... He has a 3 day time limit and with a morning and an evening stream each day, Patrick will have around 6 hours of playtime. He can do it. I believe. TeamPatrick!
You know, i think it would be more interesting if both of them made their levels and whoever couldn't finish his opponent's must donate 100$ to a charity and if both of them fail then both of them donate to a charity.
I think it's nigh time somebody beat Dan at Mario Maker, just like how Drew beat him at Mario Party.
I think this works better for two reasons.
There will be a clear winner and a clear loser. And regardless of who wins or loses, a charity wins whereas in your scenario, if both cleared the level, charity would get nothing and we'd be back to square one.
The dynamic up till now has been Patrick plays levels Dan makes. It'd be weird to flip it on both of them and cancel out the history that we have up to this point. Also, Patrick has zero experience making levels right now to the point that he doesn't have anything unlocked in the creation mode.
@szlifier: This QL thing continues to be super goddamn dope. For some reason, the chat is missing from the first part of the Destiny raid that went up recently. Dunno if that's just a bug or if it wasn't collected. Also, how are you collecting the chat? Do you have to do it live or does GB store it somewhere for you to pull from? Great work duder! =D
