    They rejected your run simply because nobody has heard of your submittal name and you had no prior stream footage. It was 100% because of lack of name recognition and not for cheating.

    Why don't speedrunning communities have separate categories for spliced runs? Yeah, people would still splice runs in the categories that don't allow splicing, but still, I think it would be cool.

    Interesting video but, good god man, your delivery was so condescending that it was genuinely getting on my nerves. Try to break out of that monotone and be less passive aggressive, it's not a good look

    Whats funny, and you may think this is rude, but he critisized somebody else for making a fake speedrun, and said it was wrong, and the he made one himself. But a complete possiblity is that he changed his veiws, which is good, because cheating shouldnt be done, but i love ot when people fake runs to see if the moderators are checking or not. Go him.

    Unfortunately the "honest mistake" comment along with the "not a bad guy" suggestion does pretty much discredit the whole point of the video, how can people who intentionally cheat and only admit after being exposed can be treated so differently, with such a high level of bias it's unfortunately impossible to be taken seriously - even though I enjoyed the content!

  • KaneLofton
    KaneLofton 20 days ago +1

    Even though it was wrong for these guys to cheat, I do believe the FIRST HALF of TSA’s and EXoSDA’s statement, about having capture card issues. I believe it SOLELY based on personal experience. I myself am not a speedrunner, but I know what it’s like to have Capture Card Issues: (Either from the program randomly closing, or the video randomly freezing and skipping.)

    Regardless, I do believe that their runs were still segmented, despite them trying to say otherwise.

  • DjSloppy Mop

    why would u even want to fake a speedrun? to get the attention of some nerds who just spam play the same game constantly? what's the point. especially to go out of your way and take hours or days out of a week to fake it. damn what a waste of everyone's time.

    Literally all you have to do to be forgiven is to honestly and openly admit to cheating and explain that it was out of anger and impulse on being fed up with failed runs.
    Then again, a lot of people who do cheat aren't anywhere near the level of dedication that would warrant such deep anger, and those types of people weren't ever going to do it legitimately

    Lmao, not only is that chibi fella annoying as fuck and got put in place by that other autistic speedrunner, but he also faked his speedruns too? Apparently, he had invited himself over to that couch during that infamous Tomba 2 speedrun, and tried to be the center of attention lmao. What a fucking loser.

    Step one to not being seen as a total piece of shit:Dont cheat
    If you failed step one see step two
    Step two:admit you cheated, give an honest response with no excuses
    If you failed step two see step three
    Step three:stop lying, your excuses are literally impossible, what the hell are you even saying at this point? This is the exact opposite of how you save your reputation
