Should have spotted the continuity break in top left, went for a guess instead. Unnecessary.

For those wondering what I'm talking about (because it seems like others are missing it too) - a 2-3 clue in the corner needs at least one of R1C3/R3C1 to be separate from R3C3 as the 'other' shaded block of the 2-3, and the 1-1-1-1 clue stops connectivity "around" the 2-3 because of this. I feel anyone who spots this quickly will do very well today.

I agree with you, after few seconds, I went for guess (not needed actually) and it was not my lucky shot. But that guess made me realize the connectivity thing in left side. But avoided mistake today :p . Very nice puzzle again.

Too hard for me and unfortunately I had to guess on this one again. I can kind of understand this idea about connectivity regarding that 2-3 clue in the corner but these things are very hard for me to spot. I haven't really been able to advance from 'local' to 'global' thinking and so I get stuck on these tricky puzzles more often than not.

1-1-1-1 wrong guess slow my time record. -_-

I hate messing up minor details. Forgot to colour a square on the bottom left.

I didn't spot the connectivity thing, but my wrong guess near the 33 did lead me to quickly discover it, and then it went smoothly from there.
