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 author medal has been adjusted. When the next update comes, the time should not require excessive risks nor abuse.

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.
