    There wasn't last year, which makes this all the more odd.

    Games are played in whatever language is fastest. Typically because of text speed but some glitches and stuff in games can also be specific to a certain region's game release.

    I remember reading that setup for tasbot is a tremendous pain in the ass, but I dunno if that's the specific reason or not.

    these speedrunners are very entertaining to watch. they're quite impressive especially if you're a speedrunner yourself.

    The organizers of the event are notorious for banning people and speedrunners over the stupidest reasons.

    Well I just want it to be entertaining, not seem like is a scripted situation. Is almost as bad as watching Esports on tv. :ninja:

    Sub chat, no crowd cam, moderation still stupid even though you have to pay now, 99% more PC and SJW than ever before. Now featuring more tech issues than ever. Also DwoB is a horrible organization who support terrorists.

    Garbage event, someone new needs to step in with a replacement

    Based on the method used to actually showcase it, is not the same as other console verified runs. The dolphin emulator was used, then recorded replays that was able to playback perfectly, then the save data with the replay data was transferred to a gamecube memory card. It be the same way you do things with Mario Kart, F Zero or other racing games that has replay data.
