I've been to Portal about 150 times and just the other day was the first time that I actually completed it. I'm just curious to know how many other people have because it is such a difficult task. Have you or someone you know completed it? Remember, there's a difference between getting to Portal and ACTUALLY completing it (all 24 ramp shots + the disc shot for Super Jackpot).

Also, feel free to also discuss any strategies and big tips to get SOS lit, navigating through it, and completing Portal.

Good job, FED! It's great you got that on camera. I was in a similar situation where I was down to one ball during Portal and my next shot was crucial in getting another ball added to keep the mode going. I think that happened two or three times. I was laughing my ass off.

Unrelated question - How many different ways are there to get Light Cycle mode completed (solidly lit on the ladder)?

Quoted from rai:

Is it utterly sad that I would consider getting to Portal an accomplishment?

Not at all. Getting to Portal is a MAJOR accomplishment. Many many times when I reached it my hands were literally shaking. After about the 75th-100th time my hands finally decided to calm down.

Portal is fun, but I've always said that navigating through SOS was my favorite part of the game.

Quoted from gweempose:

You basically want to focus on the left ramp -> Quorra -> right ramp combo. I think there are other ways to do it, but this is the easiest.

I agree that is the easiest way. Another is left ramp --> Quorra --> Gem. We must keep in mind that there is a delayed timer so if we miss one of those shots there's still time (like 5 seconds for the 2nd and 3rd shot, each).

Quoted from mulder2010:

What was your score on the game that you beat portal?
How about the scores of people who reached portal?

My leaderboard scores are 336, 321, 320, 284, and 282 million. Those scores have at least one portal and most likely two SOS's. Factory settings (EB at 12 ramps).

Quoted from gweempose:

I've always found Portal to be a major disappointment in terms of points compared to SoS. I've never completed Portal, though. I've been 4-5 shots away a couple times. How much is the Portal super jackpot worth if you complete it?

The Super Jackpot I got was around 36 million. I was too excited to get it that I didn't even consider shooting for DOUBLE SCORING which could have been 72 million. Next time!
