Granted, I'm going up against an empty FR, but I think it was a pretty good run anyway and it shows the route adequately enough.

Homerun flag cap on FF_Destroy (Fortress Forever) - YouTube

However, this doesn't really show the true beauty of the route. You can also do the same thing but air control over to the button ramp and slide it instead. You can even potentially slide all the way to flag by going button, but it's insanely hard.
Wow, thats really interesting. I remember spoon showed me that a while back (2009?) but I had no idea that you could take it main ramp... I only used it for button, but thought it was too impractical to use in a real pickup.

How consistent have you gotten it? Like # of successful attempts out of 10.

Wow, nice. Didn't ever think that'd be used in an actual game. You actually did a crazy thing where you jumped back through the hole and then conced down and double jumped off the ground in front of the window. I just used the "noob conc" (HH conc without jumping) in my video.

I get it about 9 times out of 10, maybe a little less. It's definitely possible to do it consistently, though. When I saw exo doing it he got it every single time and did it every single run (though I might be misremembering).

The way I do it, you have to get to ~550+ speed on your first strafe jump. If you only get to, like, ~500, chances are you might not make it, because you have to get to the downtrimp spot in a certain number of jumps, not a certain amount of time. So, if you don't have the right speed, you'll make it to where you need to be but you'll be in the middle of a jump or something; you can sometimes salvage a bad initial strafe jump by priming the conc just a bit later, but it's a gamble.

Do you just kind of conc in yard, or is there a setup that you are doing? Because it seems like you are dropping down and bhopping to the door, and priming a conc as you go through the door.

I was trying it earlier with just down-trimping off the yard ramp into a conc and it wasnt very consistently, but your way seems better.

Yeah the hard part is just the placement of your jumps so you can jump near the end of the platform before you hit that big gap, otherwise you won't make it, but it's definitely possible. It's only really feasible when taking the flag security and you know the enemy will be near their lower respawn. If you have a conc left over, it's almost just better to conc from the top of the ramp near security to that same main entrance platform.

Yes, I do a setup and you described it pretty well. The first jump and the timing of the prime are very important. The consideration after that is to sort of hug the left wall and get as far forward in the yard as possible. You want to hit the downtrimp in a spot where you can fly in a straight line into the base.

EDIT: Just FYI, that jump pad down there was a nuisance and was not built by me. It just so happened that I could avoid it and still do the route.

We're talking about different things. oaties and I were talking about the initial route (drop down from spawn, bhop into a downtrimp -> conc -> slide the whole base). The jump from the cap to the bments just requires a decent strafe jump. If you watch the clip again, you'll notice I stop bhopping and then strafe jump across.

You obviously lack a sense of humor.

Really, and how did you come to that conclusion?

While I don't really feel I need to prove anything, here's a quick video of the route:

I know, not nearly as sweet as squeek's video but it's not rocket science.

Of course it isn't rocket science, moron. Squeek just told us all how to do it. Your video just shows that Squeek is not only amazing at FF, but amazing at teaching. He manged to get your terrible ass to do something halfway decent.

If that had been a real match you probly would have thrown a conc at the HW and then walked into an SG rocket or what ever it is you do after wasting your concs.
