You might if you read my post. Backup saves fuck up the whole point of a run, safety saves would be a whole better idea if you're scared of having a possibility of not doing a certain section.
It would be a different story if it was a crash, or saving wasn't an option.

- TMR failing blindfolded Battletoads hoverbike.
- Shadow Complex run where all they did was shill the game.
- The singing during Kingdom Hearts. They weren't particularly bad, but it just made me cringe. The woman was a pretty bad singer, though.

You wanna see shilling, go watch the Axion Verge "speedrun". They spend the entire time talking about how amazing the game/developer are, telling you to buy it...

...Right until the Speedrunner fails and dies, then tilts off the face of the earth, dying over and over again.

This and the "just play the game really well super quick" types of runs piss me off to no end.

I like speedruns, but if I want to see the whole game very quickly or just the ending without any single gameplay I'd probably just watch some sped up youtube video or some shit.

My favorite speedruns are where the runners/community figure out interesting glitches for skips or interesting combinations that allow them to perform actions that the developers didn't originally think about.

Just glitching on some staircase for 10 minutes and then getting teleported to the credits is NOT fun to watch and doesn't interest me at all. Same as watching some dumbfuck race mario kart 8 for 2 hours and winning every single race, what's the fucking point?

Kill yourselves, noone wants to watch someone play the same game for 4 hours. His first fuck up was 20 minutes in and his second was an hour in. If he started from the beginning he would have taken 3 hours and pushed back the entire schedule.

He already holds the WR for SM RBO speedrun, AGDQ is just an exhibition to show off the strats if you want a true speedrun go check out his videos.

>>323460508
Something needs to be done to make the run safe and backup saves allow for using riskier routes. If it works out, no one will even know you had a save ready and it'll be impressive. But with a marathon safe strat it's clear to everyone that it's just a boring route.

He gambled and he lost. At least he tried to show the real strats.

Yes, but marathon save strats also don't fuck with the entire idea of a marathon of speedruns.

people who advocate for change usually don't fit in the existing system, that's why they want change.

When you fit in a system or it benefits you a lot, you see no reason to change it; when you have issues with a system or you are outside it, you are more likely to see problems with it.

the majoras mask 100% run was genuinely fun to watch. the movement was so crisp and perfect. also i like how informative the main runner was, and how they shared the run equally between the 4 of them.

I've already explained that mate. The problem isn't with it taking more time to use a backup save over other strats (lolwat, obviously a backup save is faster, hence why my point is legit in the first case), it's that a backup save fucks with the entire idea of a marathon of speedruns.
Saving over and over again doesn't waste a lot of time anyway, not if you do it at the few points he knows he might mess up. Don't go back-pedal on the facts that it was first about wasting hours and only being a few points where he could mess up either.

How would you do something like Dark Souls with marathon strats? The whole route is based on a 25% chance of an item dropping 7 minutes into the run. The only options are to grind, have a backup save, or re-route and practice a new route only for one marathon run.

>people saying using backup saves for SM was a good idea

No, you guys don't get it. We understand it's not a competition, but the charm of the event is to see people speedrun games and show us their expertise despite fuck ups. This, in this context, means that using a marathon path instead of a risky normal speedrun is normally the recommended way.

I couldn't honestly give two shits if some guy fucked up and decided to chuck in a "fake" run with a backup save. It's not speedrunning, it's just bandaiding a failed run. What pretty much every single other fucking runner at the event decided to run risk-free paths and go for slightly-slower-yet-more-enjoyable runs, because they know that accidents can happen and in case of death they can recover. As a viewer I want to see a legit run with deaths and mistakes and I enjoy seeing 'pros' recover and the resulting time, it helps me acknowledge the fact that speedrunning is accessible to anyone and a speedrun with mistakes can still get a decent time.

Watching some dude pull out a different cartridge with a backup save just instantly makes me lose all the interest I had.

This proves you didn't even bother watching it, it was on the same cart, saved he had prepped beforehand.

I don't care what your autistic view is of what "should be done". By the end of the day, it is an event with a schedule. The backup save was necessary, because otherwise he'd just start from the very beginning again. If you want to see people reset a ton, why not visit their streams and watch them play, I don't know why you would watch a GDQ and expect a ton of resets and no backup saves.

I admit I didn't watch it because it was at 5am in my timezone, I read in this thread that he pulled out a different cartridge so I went with that. I was planning to watch the speedrun later but when I heard about it, it pretty much killed my interest.

I was just trying to sum up what >>323465687 had been trying to say and give my insight on what I think.

>By the end of the day, it is an event with a schedule. The backup save was necessary, because otherwise he'd just start from the very beginning again. If you want to see people reset a ton, why not visit their streams and watch them play, I don't know why you would watch a GDQ and expect a ton of resets and no backup saves.

This makes me think you didn't read my whole post. I'll reiterate here, normal speedrunners at these event run "marathon strats", which means less risky and slightly slower paths in the game which take in consideration the chance of dying and fucking up and still provide a reasonable estimate time not to go overboard. There is literally no reason why you couldn't save in risky areas in SM without needing to use backup saves. Zero reasons.

No shit you idiot, but he didn't use it. Thus he would have started from the beginning again, had he not prepped a backup save. He was trying to demonstrate the route they used for this category, by not going out of the way for safety saves. There would have been literally no difference whether or not he safety saved, or just used a backup. At the end of the day, his run failed because of the death. There never was anything "legit" about his run, it ended as soon as he died.

Or, you know, in the event that he didn't die, he would have went faster than if he did a safety save. He also accounted for dying, by making a backup save. Which makes his run no longer legit, but the time of the run doesn't matter when you already fucking lost the run anyway.

This is not a competition. There is no "losing", it's a fucking show for charity. Viewers want to see a legit run of the game and they don't care if it's world record or not. Cheating by swapping a different cartridge or loading a pre-made save is nowhere different from using some shitty noclip cheats or using a modded ROM with some specific cheats to skip stuff or provide god mode or whatever.

We want to see legit runs. We don't care if you take 50 seconds longer to make a safety save, it just makes you look even more 'human' because you realize you can fuck up. It actually provides an even better insight in the game by showing viewers that even pros can fuck up and need to take countermeasures for it, it gives us checkpoints in the game where we know it's hard even for good runners.

The difference is exactly what you said. If you have to resort to behind-the-scenes backups and not care about any risk when you're running the game, it takes away a massive chunk of humanity, interest, risk and potential for mistakes (which are always interesting to watch). If at any point in the game you can just pull up a backup you made yourself at home with "lol nvm I was joking, here gamesave" it feels like cheating.

By using safety saves and planning a less risky run through the game you actually show more prowess at the game, more insight and knowledge about the intricacies of a risky speedrun and you have to consider tradeoffs between risks and run time, do you want to make an extra safety save and take the extra 30 seconds? Or do you feel confident enough to pull through knowing 100% for sure you won't die at this particular point in the game? Shit like this is why it's interesting to watch these live runs, otherwise they could just show us pre-recorded videos of "perfect" runs with commentary on top.

You do realize estimates are abundant as fuck already and they already take in consideration fuckups and marathon runs with good windows for mistakes? I mean, that's literally what every other speedrunner does, they plan marathon paths accordingly, they time their average, they submit a runtime and add some extra 10-15 minutes (or whatever) time for technical issues and other possible problems that might arise.

How is SM any different from any other marathon-run game? We're talking about a 2-3 minutes (at best) different from swapping a cartridge...

BT running TOB was pretty good but the glitch not working did get embarassing when he was just repeatedly humping a wall telling us he should pass through when it didn't look anything remotely like he would pass through. He ultimately saved it though and it wasn't that bad.

>It's a charity event!

I wish people would stop saying this. If you've watched GDQ for longer than two or three years, you'd realize that it was a community-driven event for years before it was a fundraiser for PCF and MSF. It's disrespectful to the runners and community members who made pre-2014 GDQ a magical event. What people fail to grasp is that modern GDQ is literally a business. It's a registered limited liability company in the state of VA, complete with corporate insurance and a lawyer. PCF allots up to $167,400 in wages for 19 staff and volunteers, pays Mike Uyama (who is still "sick" and refuses to talk to the community) a cut of the amount raised by AGDQ (upwards of $100,000), and pays for a large part of the event expenses out of its "fundraising" budget. GDQ profits off of these events, and it's Mike's, Matty's, and Sumichu's job - none of whom speedrun at all anymore.

They disrespect and mistreat the runners regularly, making little to no exception for people who are harmed by GDQ's own incompetence. They enforce politically correct atmosphere at the marathons and present a fucked-up vision of speedrunning by putting runners on a stage and completely removing any sense of community. It sucks to see your friends, who are wonderful people who could make GDQ fun again, get up on that stage and sit silently because they're not even sure what they're allowed to say.

PCF is a first-world scam and GDQ misleads its audience completely as to what they are and what they do. Forget lying about raffles (you don't need to donate AT ALL to win them), forget avoiding mentioning that subscriber money only goes to the charity two months out of the year, or that PCF is a U.S.-based charity.

If you think they're being honest about their "great cause" with their terrible track record, get a fucking clue. After the last ESA, Cool Matty straight up said to the organizers of that marathon, "You need to pick the charity or the community."

For the record, a lot of runners have been telling GDQ to ditch PCF for years. MSF was chosen by popular vote in 2013 before SGDQ. PCF has been AGDQ's charity ever since Mike was contracted by PCF and then DISAPPEARED a year later. They've promised "discussions", and we get nothing.

I wish more people knew the facts about this glorified convention, but even those are locked away in random threads on SDA, across years.

By the way, Romscout was fired and SGDQ is being run by the same people who run AGDQ. Have fun this summer.

GDQ stopped being that long ago, it USED to be speedrunning nerds getting out of their basement, showing their face and playing on stream for charity. It's now entirely populated by some random Twitch whores who don't even have the record on the game they're playing. They do it for attention and self-promotion, nothing more.

>>323468921

So is ESA lost then?

>>323468415
It wasn't on stream. Some guy here on /v/ somehow found his profile on grommr or whatever, which is a site full of gay fetishists. He had a bunch of unlisted Youtube videos there showing off his belly and shit. It was pretty bizarre. After all that surfaced, he wrote a pastebin with a shitty excuse about it being some bet he made during college or some shit.

The first GDQ was literally in Mike's basement. It was comfy.

Nothing worth linking to, I'm on my phone. Basically, after ESA 2014 (2013?), Cool Matty posted his own feedback in the general feedback thread on SDA. There was one point where he said that an event needs to figure out its identity and pick one or the other: charity / professionalism (ESA raises less money) or community.

It was just a hint of things to come really. He's also said that his primary concern is "keeping the business afloat so these events can continue to happen" in the open apology to the GDQ community. It just as shows where his priorities lie and the true cost of GDQ growing to this size.

>or that PCF is a U.S.-based charity.
This pisses me off the most honestly. The event is being broadcasted on the internet, attended by many non-americans and donated to by people from all over the world. And the money goes to some tax scam-tier charity that hands out flyers to Americans. It's fucking disgusting to be honest.

No, Matty is an idiot and ignoring him was the right thing to do. They asked the community if they should keep the charity thing going and most voted for it, so they'll keep doing it on the side.
