Impossible to earn the Author Medal on B14 in Lagoon?

Post by iamajellydonut » 24 May 2017, 05:25

According to the game, I currently have the quickest time of all the Lagoon players in the world on B14. But I don't have the Author Medal for some reason. I've tried to improve my current time, but it seems pretty much impossible to drive the track any quicker. Is this a bug? Was the Author really totally flawless when running the track? Is there some kind of cut or alternate route I don't know about?

This was already reported during the beta and will be fixed:

It is actually possible to beat it but it requires certain speed boosts on the rollercoasters which are random.

Random speed boosts on rollercoasters? I DID notice my previous best time appearing to randomly shoot ahead on occasion, even if I was taking the exact same race line. This sounds like it would create an awful lot of competitive distortion for no good reason. I hope it gets fixed.
