11 days left until submissions close!

 
 

BSG, also known as the Benelux Speedrunner Gathering, is an on-site marathon in the Netherlands. Naturally, the event is open for people from all nationalities. The doors will be open starting Saturday the 10th of August until Sunday the 18th of August. The stream is scheduled to run starting Sunday the 11th of August until Saturday the 17th of August.

Venue
Hotel Asteria Venray – Zaal Zeven Venray
Maasheseweg 80a
5804 AD Venray
The Netherlands

Transportation
Car: When going by car the hotel is right next to the A73 (turn 8 ). You will see a McDonalds, the venue is the hotel across the street from said McDonald's. Parking at the venue is free.
Public Transport: There is a train going between Nijmegen and Venlo every 30 minutes. You’ll want to take the Venlo-Nijmegen line to Venray Station. We are looking into options for setting up a pick-up service like previous years. More information regarding this will follow closer to the event.
Plane: If you are arriving at Schiphol airport you can take the train to Nijmegen. This is a direct line. If arriving at Eindhoven you’ll want to go to Eindhoven central and take the train to Venlo from there. From here you can take the above-mentioned train.
Alternatively, you can fly to Weeze airport, but be sure to have someone pick you up there. This is about a 30-minute drive from the venue with no public transport options.

Submissions open: January 15th until March 31st (11:59 pm CEST)
First cuts: May 5th

Food & Drinks
You are allowed to bring in food and drinks to the hotel and consume them in the BSG areas. You are not allowed to consume your own food and drinks in the public areas of the hotel. We would also ask everyone not to consume food on stream.

There is a McDonalds across the street and a subway at about a 1 km walk. There are several supermarkets at about 2 km from the venue, parking in Venray is free almost everywhere. Alternatively, there is a bus going to the city center every hour (taking about 9 minutes to get to the center, dropping you off right next to the supermarket).

Entry fee
We are using a ticket system for the event. Tickets will be €65,- per person for the full week. Day tickets will be €18,50. These tickets will go live at May 1st, this post will be updated once the tickets are live. Runners will be required to have paid their tickets a month upfront of the event, July 10th 23:59 CEST for reference.
Tickets can be found at https://store.dutchrank.nl/

Housing
Getting a room at the hotel is the easiest place for housing for BSG Annual 2019. You can book your room directly at https://www.asteria.nl/. Be sure to mention in your reservation that you are part of the event.

We are currently looking into options for mass housing. As of right now, we do not have a mass housing spot confirmed. We will update you guys in discord as soon as we find a place for mass housing. You are of course welcome to look into options for a Bed & Breakfast or another hotel in the neighborhood if the hotel is too expensive.

Volunteering
The volunteering thread will open on April 1st.

Runs are currently ranked by real time

 
 

My suggestion would be, if you're interested do a run, when its done (assuming there's some clear guidelines it was done by (for example all any% glitchless category's or something)) let me know and we'll make a leaderboard for it 🙂 In general the more the merrier, but it might be best not to make too many leaderboards with nothing on it

83:21:57 RTA (52:42:43 actual playtime) for Pokémon gen 3 catch 'em all Glitchless, although I have a few longer runs planned for the forseeable future so will soon have a run that'd be over 100 hours

Hey, I know we've kept you guys in the dark for a bit, but the wait wont be in vain. We've been working behind the scenes on watching runs (or at least parts of it), and making our decisions on what we feel would be the best options for the marathon. All in all we had almost 800 hours of submissions, and with only just under 350 to fill you can imagine that takes a lot of really difficult decisions. That being said, we have come to some conclusions regarding what we would feel is the best set for the event. Now, I will add we have not yet had a chance to look at the availabilities to ensure we can actually make it work. That being said there is a very high likelyhood things will change. These cuts are TENTATIVE. They are still dependant on wether or not this can actually work in a schedule. If it can, great. If not, we will be forced to adjust accordingly. We hope to have some more details on this within the next 1.5 week or so, so bare with us while we comb through all the data and try to make something cool with it.

That all said, without further ado, the tentative cuts for RRLAT2: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1TPmfD8--VijPFeX-w_4jBOX6H8DObRs9oYvmCNbNdns/edit?usp=sharing

 
 

Sorry for the late reply, I dont usually look on the forums much (feel free to DM in discord for more direct contact). Ive talked over an idea like that before with genokirby. If you have a suggestion for how to set it up, by all means Im open to hear you out on it

 
 

Sorry to bother you guys again, Im currently mod on https://www.speedrun.com/tloztlonrs ; The only super mod has left without notice and since Im the only remaining active mod (with the other one having been offline for a year) I'd like to request to be bumped up to super mod.

 
 

Request to be added for mod for Bomberman Land Touch! ( https://www.speedrun.com/Bomberman_Land_Touch ). Mod has not been online for almost a month and has no means of contact linked. Currently have a run pending for said game. I currently have a run pending for the game.

 
 

(quick copy paste from the about section, since this might be more visable for some)

 
 

It will be on speedgaming. Officially now. Not sure which channel exactly but in that family. This means we do need to keep it professional memes and stuff are fine but try and keep everything pg13 as possible unless the game you are playing is M rated extra leeway will be given. Kids watch speedgaming with their parents quite a bit etc. There is also not a mature audience tag on speedgaming.

Dates will be Dec 1st to Dec 15th.

Submissions for the LONG games will be open from July 1st to September 1st. These are long runs aka the ones over 4 hours or that are hundo catagories even something as short as SMB warp less would be considered 100 percent.

Schedule will then be made withen 2 or 3 weeks of that date.

Then October 1st to November 1st we will have submissions for OBSCURE games to fill in any spots in the schedule longer then 15 to 30 minutes. Huzzuh an obscure game would probably count as any game that seemingly has issues getting into marathons or that maybe you are the only runner of the catagory or game and can't get to a gdq or something.

Now you may ask what silly 2 week game will be on in the background and cause chat to bug you about for your run. The awnser is none. Based on feedback from both runners and viewers very few people enjoyed the side run and preferred the main game get all the focus. This means it will be easier to fit in those games over 24 hours as we won't need a spot for that game to be played. Any runs that require sleep we will find games to put in your sleeping schedule.

Please join the discord for updates and happy practice

 
 

Feel free to hit me up at ESA for it. Only got one run this year so I imagine I’ll have plenty of time on my hands ?

Quick bump for visability, only a couple weeks left until submissions close

 
 

Yo gyoo, got another one for you:

Requesting a thread for the ‘Really-Really-Long-a-thon 2’ (or a marathon community for RRLAT, which at this point might be easier), an online marathon running from April 1st to April 14th. The marathon, as the name suggests, focusses on really long games that dont usually get a chance due to their length. Previously this was held on the SRL channel, going to leave in the middle wether this will be the case again. Other admins are xelnas and baffan. Most likely no charity involved.

If you need to know anything else you know where to find me.

On a sidenote, I noticed marathon threads on the forum show under all community forums nowadays (at least on mobile), that intentional cause that’d make them impossible to find for most I think ? (I may have missed this being posted elsewhere, but since I have your attention now anyway ?)

It didnt emerald. Rayblue restreamed submission video's without authorization from the users, which is against article 8.2 of the twitch terms of service. Rayblue has already been reported both here on speedrun.com and on twitch on account of it. Where it goes from here I cant say, but I'll leave it at that.

 
 

Considering its against twitch terms of service, yeah, I would look into dealing with that. Would not advice on letting that go. I adviced paulister to report him with twitch on account of it, just so you know
