Transcripts

00:00

you already know the story of The Great

00:02

Potato War where years ago I went

00:04

head-to-head against technoblade

00:05

competing to become the first ever

00:07

player to reach 500 million potatoes

00:10

collected and I'm sure you know how it

00:12

ended Watch Me dance squid kid you lose

00:15

you lose the war but what if I told you

00:18

there's actually a backup plan that I

00:19

never got to finish an ending where even

00:22

if I couldn't become the potato King I

00:24

could become the king of something else

00:26

this story starts off back in April of

00:28

2020 I and a bunch of other Sky Block

00:31

YouTubers at the time gathered around

00:33

for a game of white elephant if you

00:35

don't know what white elephant is it's a

00:37

gift exchange where everyone brings a

00:39

gift of similar value and the first

00:41

person opens up a gift to see what's

00:43

inside then anyone after them gets to

00:46

pick between opening up a new gift or

00:48

stealing a gift that was already

00:49

revealed there were a ton of different

00:51

gifts with a bunch of random items and

00:53

by pure chance out of all the different

00:55

gifts I could have ended up with I got

00:57

one full of pork it was already known I

01:00

hadn't had the best experience with a

01:02

pork in the past it has the wrong

01:06

number so everyone had a

01:10

laugh oh God and at the end of the day

01:13

when I was figuring out what to do with

01:15

the equivalent of

01:17

361,000 pork chop an idea came to me pig

01:21

minions I decided I wanted to not only

01:23

keep fighting for rank one in potato I

01:25

also wanted to go for rank one in pork

01:28

very ambitious but it wasn't impossible

01:31

and I was kind of behind in the potato

01:33

War at the time so I figured it wouldn't

01:36

hurt to have a backup plan now I

01:38

couldn't really just pick up my potato

01:39

minions and put down Pig minions because

01:42

I was kind of actively participating in

01:43

The Great Potato War so that meant the

01:46

only way I could place more minions down

01:48

was to place them on a different Sky

01:50

Block profile unlocking all of the

01:52

minion slots and buying all of the

01:53

minions and their upgrades was really

01:55

expensive but I still wanted to keep it

01:58

a secret so during the potato War when I

02:00

would collect coins I would list

02:02

something on the auction house for

02:03

people to bid on what I wasn't telling

02:05

people is some of the auctions were

02:07

being listed from A Different Sky Block

02:09

profile meaning the coins were going to

02:11

my secret project instead of The Great

02:13

Potato War so with having unlocked all

02:16

24 minion slots each with a tier 11 pig

02:18

minion a fly catcher a super compactor

02:22

and an enchanted lava bucket all I had

02:24

to do was grind my Spider Slayer to

02:26

level six to actually be able to equip

02:28

the fly catchers which would make get a

02:30

Max pig minion setup for the time well

02:32

aside for the fuel at least Catalyst

02:35

would have been the best fuel but they

02:36

were just too expensive to run and with

02:38

everything going on I was already

02:40

pushing it I didn't really give it much

02:42

thought after that I had plans to

02:44

eventually hit Spider Slayer level six

02:46

but it wasn't anywhere close to the top

02:48

of my priorities list since I had a

02:50

bigger battle to worry about so I

02:52

figured I would just let the minions

02:53

work and maybe check up on them once in

02:55

a while 2 months later the potato work

02:58

came to an end way sooner than I had had

03:00

originally expected so it was time to

03:02

check up on the pig minion I was nowhere

03:04

near number one pork I don't remember

03:06

how much I had exactly but I wasn't even

03:08

in the top 10 now one loss was enough

03:10

for that day so I never ended up telling

03:12

anybody about what I had going on behind

03:14

the scenes the minions sat around

03:16

collecting dust for ages only receiving

03:18

a few easy upgrades as Sky Block got

03:20

updates more notably September of 2020

03:23

when the community center update got

03:24

released I upgraded the enchanted lava

03:27

buckets to plasma buckets which granted

03:29

a thir 35% boost instead of a 25% boost

03:32

I also unlocked five extra minion slots

03:35

with gems which I saved 5% off by using

03:38

Code squid on the Hypixel store

03:40

everything I make off my Creator code

03:42

code squid for the next 30 days I'll be

03:44

donating to the saroma foundation which

03:46

is the charity I attached to this video

03:49

I also reached out to Simon Hypixel and

03:51

he agreed to donate a part of what

03:53

Hypixel makes through my credit code as

03:55

well so make sure you use code squid at

03:57

checkout enjoy the rest of the video

03:59

January 2021 the Dwarven mines were

04:02

added to the game adding a beacon that

04:04

when fueled increases minion production

04:06

by 10% but unfortunately I couldn't use

04:09

it there's a progression tree that comes

04:11

with the mining skill now called heart

04:12

of the mountain and you need to be heart

04:14

of the mountain level five to use a Max

04:16

Level Beacon to level it up you have to

04:18

do a bunch of different mining

04:19

commissions like mining a certain amount

04:22

of mithril or titanium so after a month

04:24

of getting on every day and mining for

04:26

an hour I was finally able to place my

04:29

tier five 5 Beacon then I kind of forgot

04:31

about it and the minions sat unbothered

04:34

for years until May of 2023 I decided I

04:37

finally wanted to make my last attempt

04:39

at a rank one position I had a few years

04:42

of updates to catch up on and there are

04:44

two more minion slots that I had to

04:46

unlock and all the pig minions needed to

04:48

be upgraded to level 12 simple enough

04:51

right not even close how unlocking

04:54

minion slots in Sky Block works is you

04:56

need a certain amount of unique minion

04:58

craft naturally you'll unlock the easier

05:00

and cheaper ones first making the last

05:03

ones really expensive or difficult to do

05:05

the 30th and the 31st minion slot

05:08

require 50 unique minion crafts each to

05:10

unlock although I could just buy the

05:12

materials I needed most of the minions

05:14

were locked behind things you couldn't

05:16

just buy with coins so I'll go over some

05:18

of them Revenant tarantula and voidling

05:21

minions all three of these Slayer

05:23

minions have a Slayer level requirement

05:25

to craft luckily it doesn't take long if

05:27

you have someone helping you out I would

05:29

just on my boss and have someone kill it

05:31

for me I also took the opportunity to go

05:34

all the way to Spider Slayer level six

05:36

to be able to use my fly catchers that I

05:38

bought Magma Cube Blaze gas quartz and

05:41

glowstone minions all purchased from an

05:43

NPC on the Crimson aisle Sky Block's

05:45

biggest island released back in April of

05:48

2022 which had a combat level

05:50

requirement of 24 at the time this was

05:53

kind of an issue because I didn't really

05:55

play on the profile other than

05:56

maintaining the minions I was only

05:58

combat 19 with with no good gear and no

06:01

accessories meaning I couldn't do a ton

06:03

of damage on my own and I would die

06:05

really easily I didn't want to spend

06:06

ages grinding my combat level so after

06:09

asking around people generally agreed

06:11

the best way to hit combat 24 quickly

06:13

was to grind Beast Theory so that's what

06:16

I did Beast Theory basically rewards you

06:18

for killing a certain amount of each mob

06:20

in the game 2 hours later I had barely

06:23

gained any combat XP at all and I

06:26

stopped because the next beastiary

06:28

Milestone was only going to reward Ward

06:29

me with 10,000 combat XP which was

06:32

nothing compared to the roughly 2

06:33

million combat XP I needed to hit combat

06:36

level 24 so I had to get creative I had

06:39

to think of a new method that nobody's

06:41

ever really talked about before and I

06:43

thought back to when tilted honey was

06:45

boosting me to unlock the voidling

06:47

minion at Enderman Slayer level four

06:49

even though I wasn't able to kill all

06:51

the bosses myself which meant I didn't

06:53

get in combat XP I was still gaining

06:55

combat XP from the mini bosses I was

06:57

spawning even if I wasn't doing damage

06:59

to them the void glue mini bosses would

07:01

reward a decent amount of combat XP even

07:04

while only doing a tier three Slayer

07:05

contract the tier four void glue mini

07:08

bosses would give even more so that was

07:10

my method I would start a tier four

07:12

contract spawn mini bosses let tilted

07:15

honey kill them for me and once a main

07:17

Slayer boss spawns I would let it kill

07:19

me so I could start a new Slayer

07:21

contract and keep spawning mini bosses

07:23

right away this method got me around a

07:25

million combat XP an hour so after only

07:28

a few hours I fin finally hit combat 24

07:31

granting me access to the Crimson

07:36

aisle red sand and melium these minions

07:40

were probably the biggest headaches to

07:41

get out of all of them they're also on

07:43

the Crimson aisle but here's the catch

07:45

to craft each tier of these minions you

07:48

need a higher and higher amount of

07:49

reputation here's a quick rundown of how

07:51

the Crimson Isles reputation system

07:53

works when you enter the nether you can

07:55

choose one of two factions Mage for the

07:58

melum men

07:59

or Barbarian for the Red Sand minion you

08:02

head to your factions Mission board and

08:04

accept your five daily missions each

08:06

rewarding you anywhere between 30 and

08:08

125 reputation with your faction there

08:11

are six different types of missions Dojo

08:14

various mechanically skill-based

08:16

challenges that put you to the test

08:17

probably one of the cooler things to do

08:19

on the whole island I would do my Dojo

08:21

Mission every time it was offered

08:23

because they were pretty easy fetch hand

08:26

in a random material from the Crimson

08:28

aisle sometimes I wouldn't be able to do

08:30

this Mission because most of the

08:31

materials they asked for are untradeable

08:34

rescue go look for and save a captured

08:36

faction inpc from enemy territory

08:38

without getting caught by sneaking past

08:40

the guards this one was a bit annoying

08:43

but it was very doable boss Quest you

08:45

have to go kill the magma boss or the

08:47

cudra boss these took too much time so I

08:50

decided to just skip it if it ever came

08:51

up fishing catch a specific trophy fish

08:55

nothing too bad just a bit tedious and

08:58

the last type of mission are mini boss

09:00

missions they require you to kill one of

09:02

the four mini bosses around the Crimson

09:04

aisle most of these I could do which

09:06

brings me to the other main way of

09:08

gaining reputation mini bosses on top of

09:11

the reputation reward for doing a mini

09:13

boss Mission killing each mini boss

09:15

grants a small amount of reputation once

09:17

a day so every day I would go to the

09:19

Crimson aisle and accept all my daily

09:21

missions then kill all the mini bosses

09:24

except for ash bang and by kill all the

09:26

mini bosses I mean I would do the

09:28

minimum one million damage required to

09:30

each one and beg someone to kill it

09:32

while working on my other missions like

09:34

doing the Dojo or rescue mission after

09:36

doing all I could every day I'd maybe

09:38

gain 200 reputation with my faction and

09:42

that might seem okay until you learn

09:44

that I needed 12,000 reputation with

09:48

each faction meaning once I had reached

09:50

12,000 reputation in one faction I had

09:54

to swap factions and start again but

09:56

from negative - 2,000 reputation and go

09:59

back up to 12,000 again so yeah that

10:03

took literal months but eventually I

10:06

crafted the minions I needed from that

10:07

Island moving on to the tier 12 farming

10:10

minions to upgrade any farming minion to

10:12

tier 12 not only do you need the

10:14

millions of coins worth of whatever crop

10:16

it is on top of that you need 75 pelts

10:19

how do you get pelts you ask well to get

10:22

pelts you go to Trevor the Trapper you

10:24

then track down and kill any mob he

10:26

wants you to anywhere on the island and

10:29

that giv gives you a few pelts I needed

10:31

a total of 3500 of them anyways I

10:34

upgraded all my unique farming minions

10:36

as well as 31 of my pig minions bringing

10:38

their base minion speed from 13 seconds

10:41

down to 10 seconds moving on to the

10:43

vampire minion to get this minion we had

10:45

to go to the rift Dimension probably the

10:48

most interesting minion to obtain in the

10:50

entire game to get it you have to do

10:52

hours of unique Quest that involve you

10:54

going into a mirror Dimension fighting a

10:56

giant slime that has tentacles this time

10:58

calculating what somebody owes on their

11:00

tax return hacking into the main frame

11:02

and hand feeding Sky Block's biggest

11:04

Gizzy gobbler until you eventually get

11:06

to the still Gore chatau where you

11:08

collect blood off a few vampires to

11:10

unlock the minion it's some of my

11:12

favorite content added to Sky Block to

11:14

date so I definitely recommend you check

11:16

it out for yourself and At Last I

11:18

unlocked my 31st minion slot there were

11:21

only a few upgrades I had left to do I

11:23

upgraded each of my minions using

11:25

Mythril infusions I bought granting a

11:27

10% speed buff something else I'm doing

11:29

that probably doesn't even matter is I

11:31

started buying a new Beacon fuel that is

11:34

way more expensive because it grants all

11:36

minions and 11% speed increase rather

11:39

than 10% from the cheaper alternative

11:41

but that's not even the most expensive

11:43

part now that I had a Max minion setup I

11:45

started fueling the minions with Hyper

11:47

Catalyst an upgrade to Catalyst that

11:50

makes them quadruple the output instead

11:51

of only tripling it and they last twice

11:54

as long with the best minions powered by

11:56

the best fuel with the best Beacon it

11:58

was time to bring my amp back but of

12:01

course it wasn't that easy in Sky Block

12:03

if you're in an AFK pool for too long

12:06

you'll get kicked to limbo to avoid that

12:08

I needed to eat a booster cookie but to

12:10

even buy booster cookies you needed to

12:12

be Sky Block Level s and I didn't really

12:14

want to grind Sky Block levels on my alt

12:16

account so instead I just traded over a

12:18

bunch of pets that give Sky Block XP to

12:20

be extra cautious I even had my roommate

12:23

trade over the level 100 Pigman pet

12:25

because I didn't want anyone to be

12:26

suspicious of my auction history having

12:29

a level 100 Pigman pet active on the

12:31

island increase the speed of pig minions

12:33

by 30% now I had to keep him on my

12:36

Island 24/7 otherwise they wouldn't be

12:38

getting Max rats it was a waiting game

12:40

now I had already looked into the pig

12:42

collection leaderboard and there were

12:43

two main people the guy in first Ken

12:46

Sparrow he had first place since before

12:48

December of 2020 and he was ahead of me

12:51

by a ton but he only had 30 minion slots

12:54

unlocked while I had the max of 31 MP4

12:57

he was pretty far behind k Sparrow but

13:00

he had 31 minion slots unlocked and was

13:02

gaining on him this was pretty

13:03

concerning because if he was using the

13:05

same minion setup as me and we were

13:07

collecting pork at the same rate that

13:09

would mean I would never catch him

13:11

luckily running hyper Catalyst and your

13:13

minions cost around 20 to 25 million

13:15

coins every single day making it very

13:18

unlikely that anyone else would be using

13:20

them August came around and with Derpy

13:22

being an office I decided I would

13:24

collect my minions to see where I stand

13:26

on the leaderboard I was in fourth place

13:29

with with 204 million pork collected

13:31

which was promising since I've been

13:32

tracking everyone else's rate of

13:34

increase and I was able to confirm they

13:36

weren't using hyper Catalyst as much as

13:38

I was I just had to keep waiting as

13:40

there's actually no way to grind a

13:42

meaningful amount of pork by hand it's

13:44

all minions October 23rd MP4 actually

13:47

ended up taking first place from Ken

13:49

Sparrow so he got his sweet taste of

13:52

Victory but it was shortlived because it

13:54

wasn't even two weeks later on November

13:56

4th I would finally collect my minions

13:59

and take the throne for the most poor

14:01

collected in Hypixel Sky Block exactly

14:03

four years after I lost my spot as the

14:06

potato King a week later MP4 reached out

14:09

to my business email confused hey squid

14:12

this is MP4 the current second

14:15

placeholder in pork chop collection I

14:17

was also first place a few weeks ago

14:19

until you overtook me with a 28 million

14:21

pork chop lead also having never seen

14:23

you on the pork chop leaderboard I

14:25

assume you had your API off in order to

14:27

surprise people with your play placement

14:29

your sudden reveal in both placement and

14:31

collection was definitely quite

14:33

surprising especially considering your

14:35

past experiences in collection Wars that

14:38

surpris aside I am now just thoroughly

14:40

confused about you know why I have been

14:43

grinding this collection for the better

14:44

part of 4 years and have not seen your

14:46

presence in it once until this week I

14:48

assume the current situation I'm

14:50

experiencing is kind of like what you

14:52

felt when techno overtook your place 3

14:55

years ago so hopefully you can relate to

14:57

my plea of asking why I don't even want

15:00

to know how you did it I would just like
