Best Tower of Biased overall?

Haven't played SMBX in awhile. I loved the ToB series back in the day (and I kinda hope the series might return some day) and I want to experience them again. Problem is, there are so many to choose from. So I'm going to be looking for the best depending on various criteria.

Like, which one had the best general selection of levels (including the winners), the best hub world, the best villains, etc.

I doubt that the Tower of Biased series will return anytime soon, if at all. However, there has been a rebranding of the Community Contest series under the name Chocolate Contest X. Find it here: viewtopic.php?f=69&t=25727

About your question regarding best TOB. Well, I haven't played any of them, however let me give some advice: the TOB episode that is seen as the "best" by some users won't necessarily be the one that you find the best. I recommend you check out as many as you can so you can find which one you personally enjoy the most!

Is it confirmed to be a rebrand? Also, that depends if an episode is made on it.

I do kinda hope for a spiritual successor instead of a straight sequel. Maybe something like "World of Biased" or something.

Contest episodes are all kinda bad because a significant portion of it is guaranteed to be bad. My favourite is Level Contest Japan, because nothing needs to be unlocked there. I think the Tower of Biased episodes would be a lot better if they followed a similar format.

As for that series, it has concluded. What is it that you wish to see in a new entry in it? Since you're willing to give up the tower setting in the suggestion you just made, I'm unsure what's alluring about it that cannot be replicated in a completely distinct contest episode.

I don’t remember a lot of good things about the ToB Concepts and Episodes.
Mostly it was a lot of people fighting over who is better than someone else because they reached a higher place.
I even remember that some people got very desperate in trying to beat the famous level designers, instead of focusing on the fun when creating a level.

Oh and also if you didn’t get into Tier 1-2 no one really paid attention to the level you made unless you got a famous name in the community.

That’s why I liked the Vinesauce Contest a lot more.

Pretty sure things did change, as people don’t seem to be tryhards with the newest one yet.

I probably mentioned several times that I never completed a ToB episode (there was always at least one impossible or overly confusing level), but ToBX is also my favorite.

Because it has the most amount of levels that still stand up today.
Actually, I'm not sure how the episode is on average quality, but there's some gems in this contest.
