But on the other hand, I would say the quality of the secret rooms themselves went way up. JtRH's secret rooms are largely just more of the same from that level, and the harder rooms are hard because of either massive hordes or very tight timers. The TCB secrets are almost always something totally unique, and the difficulty comes from puzzles instead of hordes or timers.

Upper Lowest 1S1W is MEAN & UNFAIR, and I'm not sure builders can be revamped enough to fix it.

Edit: The unintended solution isn't really though.

So I’ve been meaning to post my comments, I just wanted to complete TCB before I did so. Rather than post level by level, I figured I’d post by author. One quick caveat to the room creators, understand that my enjoyment of a room is at least tempered by whether or not I can beat it in less moves than anyone else. Is interlude negotiator my favorite level because it has the best rooms, or because I seemed to get a lot of #1 scores on it… I’m really not sure. So, comments below:

In general I found Lowest Proper to be somewhat anti-climatic, but that could be just because I got frustrated with builders. The ending, and secret level made up for it though. Thanks to all who made it an overall great hold.
